Today’s Top Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks
Top Fantasy Baseball Pitcher:
Madison Bumgarner: Bumgarner is one of the best young pitchers in the game with great control. He pitched lights out in his season debut vs. the Dodgers, and he should be a good daily fantasy baseball start today against the Rockies. He has a 5-3 record in 11 starts against them with an awesome 2.39 ERA. He is pitching at home, which makes this matchup even more juicy because Colorado hitters are a different bunch away from hitter’s heaven, Coors Field. His opponent, Jorge de la Rosa, isn’t exactly a shutdown pitcher, so Bumgarner should get some run support and win the game.
Top Fantasy Baseball Catcher:
Joe Mauer: Mauer has been one of the best offensive catchers for years now. He is a lefty hitter who just kills right-handed pitching, with splits of .336/.428/.490 last season. Ervin Santana is one of the worst righties in the league, and Mauer should have a field day facing him.
Top Fantasy Baseball Infielder:
Will Middlebrooks: Middlebrooks is a great young talent and has a great future at the third baseman position for the Red Sox. He smashed 3 homeruns in yesterday’s game against the Blue Jays, and today he will be facing Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen. Between the great momentum and the fact he had better splits last year against lefties, I expect big things from him today.
Top Fantasy Baseball Outfielder:
Justin Upton: Upton is off to a dream start to his season, hitting .318/.360/1.405 in the early going. Looks like the trade from the Diamondbacks and a change of scenery are helping him so far. He is going against Kevin Slowey in tonight’s game, and that is good news for Upton and the whole Braves lineup because Slowey is just not a good pitcher.
