This is the value vault for the main slate, the one that starts at 7:00 pm ET with six games on it. There aren’t really any weather issues tonight and it certainly helps that four of the games are being played in ballparks with either domes or retractable roofs. Some of the guys in the value vault will be more hit and miss picks that have a shot at hitting value, but others are simply players who appear to be underpriced given the match-up. These players can be built around or sprinkled in depending on your build strategy, contest type, and confidence in the plays.

Both Sites

Zac Gallen, RHP ARI - Gallen has been very good since rejoining the Diamondbacks including throwing a seven-inning, complete game, one-hitter against the Braves. Now he gets the Rockies outside of Coors which is a big boost for Gallen as the Rockies have posted just a .243 wOBA and 53 wRC+ and a 26.2-percent K-rate. Even though he’s only made it the sixth inning once in three starts, as he built back up his innings, he’s struck out at least six in every start.

Evan Longoria , 3B SF - Longo has been white hot against southpaws to start this season. He’s hit four homers off of lefties so far with nine RBI in 20 at-bats along with another seven hits for a .550 average and .744 wOBA. Snell has also been hit decently hard by RHH’s with a .349 wOBA and an .800 OPS. He’s still pretty cost-friendly and the Giants offense has been good to start and could catch Snell in a rough start.

Seattle Outfield (Mitch Haniger , Kyle Lewis, Taylor Trammell ) - The Mariners outfielders have been struggling to a degree, however, these three still have 12 combined homers and they’ve been heating up recently. Haniger and Trammell both have at least a .330 wOBA against RHP’s with a combined seven homers and 21 RBI. Lewis isn’t as good as the others but has still be decent and has the speed upside. Canning has also been hittable by both handedness of hitters to this point.


Tommy Milone , LHP TOR - Milone will be the bulk reliever in today’s start against the Braves and thus opens up the win upside if the Blue Jays get a lead while he’s in the game since he won’t have to pitch five innings to qualify for one. The other advantage he has is the fact that the Braves have been heinous against southpaws in the last two weeks with a .175 wOBA and an EIGHT wRC+. One hundred is average in wRC+ and they have an EIGHT. They’ve also struck out nearly 30-percent as well. Milone has been good at posting Ks with 16 in 11.2 innings. He’s $4,000 on DK and works as an SP2 option to steal a win and some Ks.

Pavin Smith, 1B/OF ARI - Smith has been heating up of late and has posted some good numbers against southpaws as well with a .394 wOBA mark and a couple of homers. Austin Gomber was blown up last time out with nine earned allowed in less than two innings and the Diamondbacks have hit left-handed pitchers well the last few weeks as well. Smith has some nice speed and could steal a bag too. There is some risk as Gomber has been better against LHHs than RHHs.


Kyle Seager , 3B SEA - Seager has been arguably the best hitter against RHPs that Seattle has in the lineup with a .359 wOBA and four homers to go with 18 RBI off of them. The price is decently high on DK but still quite reasonable on FD with him facing a hittable Griffin Canning and batting in the middle of the order. He could be included in a Seattle stack on FD for sure.

Marcus Semien , 2B/SS TOR - Semien is 6-for-17 off of Charlie Morton in his career and while none have left the park that’s still a .353 AVG and .368 wOBA. Against RHP’s this year, Semien has five homers and a .322 wOBA while Morton has been hit well by RHH’s to this point as well. The home games for the Blue Jays have typically been high scoring affairs in Dunedin and so his price as the sixth-most expensive player at either position is a nice pay down option.
