Jose Ramirez (FDraft: $10,000 DK: $5,000 FDuel: $4,200): Our first Must-Have of the night will come from a team in one of the most prime spots tonight, the Cleveland Indians. The Indians get to face off against veteran right-handed pitcher, Mike Fiers tonight. The matchup that we love the most is Indians’ third baseman Jose Ramirez. Ramirez has crushed right-handed pitching over the course of his career with a wOBA of .351 and an ISO of .189 all while only striking out around 10% of the time. While he may not be a prolific base stealer, Jose Ramirez has also stolen 65 bases over his career with 44 of them coming against right-handed pitching. This stolen base upside also increases against Fiers who allowed 18 last year and has already given up three so far this year. Aside from stolen base trouble, Fiers has also been roughed up by left-handed hitters this season. Left-handed hitters have a hard hit percentage of 37.5 and a BABIP of .302 against Fiers this year as well as 3.38 HR/9. Ramirez and Fiers have also faced each other 11 times and Ramirez is 4 for 11 off of him with a double. Fiers is struggling and we believe that Jose Ramirez is a great candidate to produce against him tonight.
Mitch Haniger (FDraft: $8,300 DK: $4,100 FDuel: $3,900): Our second Must-Have of the night comes from the Seattle Mariners who get to face off against right-handed pitcher Jake Odorizzi. Odorizzi has already given up nine home runs this season while holding a 54.2% FB rate to right-handed batters. Odorizzi has also struggled at home this year allowing 2.12 HR/9 along with a 40% hard hit rate. Haniger has hit right-handed pitching well over his career holding down a .228 ISO and .369 wOBA against them. He has also crushed Odorizzi’s main offspeed pitch, the slider, to the tune of a .392 wOBA and .295 ISO over the last three years. Haniger is in a great spot to do some damage to the Twins and we look forward to locking him in alongside Jose Ramirez across all lineups tonight. Good luck!
