Domingo Santana is my favorite play on the slate. The Brewers have the highest implied total on the main slate. Santana’s price is super low. For his career, Santana sports a .272/.367/.486 line versus lefties. I can’t imagine liking a player more without a pricing error. The Brewers are an amazing stack, and Santana is best of the group.
Goldschmidt made this list yesterday, and he’s making it again today. This time, he has an even better match-up against Ty Blach and the Giants. Goldschmidt absolutely destroys lefty pitching. With the second highest implied total of the slate, Goldschmidt has the highest ceiling of any hitter.
If you’re not a big believer in Braves prospect Luke Sims, Conforto is a really nice option. Conforto gets the benefit of the lefty/righty match-up at the top of the order, which could result in some additional plate appearances if the game gets out of hand for Sims. That’s a great set-up for most lead-off hitters. Lucky for you, Conforto isn’t a typical lead-off hitter, as he sports a career .257 ISO versus righies.
I agree with Josh on Santana, Goldschmidt, and Conforto. Conforto is an even stronger play now that Luke Sims has been replaced by Matt Wisler, who has a track record of being a below average starter in the majors.
