Espinosa will now see regular at-bats with Ryan Zimmerman going down due to a thumb injury. He will provide daily fantasy owners with some cheap pop for the time being, as his asking price will likely increase as he plays more frequently. Espinosa crushed the ball last night belting a double and a triple, while driving in a run and scoring twice. With a great matchup against Tom Koehler, this is a great low risk, high reward play.

Outfield One: Mike Trout, $5,500

Trout is coming off an 0-for-4 game, but has been swinging a hot stick. Trout, like Pujols, has been crushing the ball in the middle of the Angels lineup and has had success against Straily, going 6-for-15 against him in his career. If only he can get going on the base paths.

Outfield Two: Bryce Harper, $4,800

Harper is another hitter whose been on fire lately, batting .422 in his last 10 games. He continued his hot hitting last night, belting two doubles and a triple, while scoring once and driving in one. Chances are if you started him last night, he rewarded you with some money. That trend should continue tonight, as he has already homered off of Koehler in his career.

Outfield Three: Alex Rios, $3,900

Rios is a great value play to round out a very strong outfield. His price is down as he has struggled in his past 10 games, but he is facing Blake Beavan tonight in Texas. That matchup has upside written all over it, as Rios has already homered in his career against him.

Well, there you have it. This is the team I am running out there tonight and advise you to do the same. Hopefully, we will all be a little richer tomorrow.
