Fantasy Baseball Best Picks of the Day – September 22nd 2015

Fantasy Baseball Best Picks of the Day – September 22nd 2015

It’s a beautiful day for Fantasy Baseball, as all 30 teams get back into action. That means it’s time to play fantasy baseball for real money. The race is on for the pennant and there is some heavy battle out there. Yesterday, the Blue Jays distanced themselves 3.5 games from the Yankees in the American League East. David Price had a stellar performance once again. He won every single game he played this month (4-0). Another pitcher that never seems to lose (especially at Minute Maid Park) is Dallas Keuchel, who is now 14-0 at home. He’s the only pitcher in the history of Major League Baseball to accomplish this feat. The Astros were able to get back one game behind the division leading Rangers. With all this drama unfolding, what is to be expected today in Daily Fantasy Baseball? Let’s get to today’s hot fantasy picks:

P Hisashi Iwakuma – Seattle Mariners

 Season: 8 W, 4 L, 3.90 ERA, 92 Ks, 20 BBs

Sure, he will be facing the best team in the American League, but Iwakuma has been efficient for the Seattle Mariners since August. We are talking about a 6-2 record and a 2.99 ERA in that stretch. Let’s not forget the no-hitter he threw back on August 12th against the Baltimore Orioles. Not only does he ride a good spell, but he also has a great record against the opposition. He holds 2 wins and no losses with a 2.14 ERA in three outings against the Kansas City Royals. Tonight, the Japanese will spoil the opportunity for the Royals to clinch a playoff spot.

C Brian McCann – New York Yankees

Season:  .238 AVG, 26 HRs, 90 RBIs, 65 Runs

The Toronto Blue Jays got the win yesterday with ace David Price on the mound. Today, it’s Marco Estrada’s turn. I’m not saying Estrada is no good, but he’s no David Price. The Yankees will take the opportunity to swing their big bats, and that means that McCann will cash in a few RBI’s in the cleanup spot.

1B Paul Goldschmidt – Arizona Diamondbacks

Season: .243 AVG, 10 HRs, 60 RBIs, 36 Runs

I said yesterday that Arizona needed to take out some frustration out on the Dodgers, and that’s exactly what they did. 17 hits and an 8-4 win in last night game was what they needed. Paul Goldschmidt has been in the middle of this rumble, knocking out one out of the park. He will continue to ride this out against starter Alex Wood. Goldy has 2 homers and 4 RBIs in 7 at-bats when facing Woods.

2B Cory Spangenberg – San Diego Padres

Season: .264 AVG, 3 HRs, 18 RBIs, 32 Runs, 9 SBs

He has been kept in the shadows playing for the San Diego Padres, but this 2011 first-round pick will become one of the best second baseman in the league. He will have an easy task tonight against San Francisco starter Chris Heston, who has been awful lately.

3B Kris Bryant – Chicago Cubs

Season: .277 AVG, 25 HRs, 95 RBIs, 84 Runs, 13 SBs

He started the season as one of the best prospect in baseball. Now he leads all rookies in RBI’s, with 95, and is tied for first in home runs, with 25. The third baseman will have no problem helping pitcher Jake Arrieta get his 20th win against the winning less Tyler Cravy.

SS Xander Bogaerts – Boston Red Sox

Season: .323 AVG, 7 HRs, 78 RBIs, 76 Runs, 10 SBs

On the 10th game of his hitting streak, he has belted a grand slam and finished the night with 5 RBI’s. Leading all shortstop in batting average, Bogaerts his quickly becoming the building block of the Boston Red Sox. He will have no problem following up on his memorable night against Matt Moore. Moore never had good outings at Fenway.

OF Rusney Castillo – Boston Red Sox

Season: .270 AVG, 5 HRs, 29 RBIs, 33 Runs, 4 SBs

The Cuban import is still getting used to playing in MLB this year. He doesn’t show big numbers but the everyday left fielder should produce against Matt Moore at Fenway Park. The Red Sox are still seeing something in him. So should we.

OF Seth Smith – Seattle Mariners

Season: .247 AVG, 11 HRs, 41 RBIs, 48 Runs

Nelson Cruz doesn’t have success against Jeremy Guthrie. It will be on Robinson Cano and Seth Smith to take charge of the offense. Smith has had some quality at-bats facing Guthrie.

OF Angel Pagan – San Francisco Giants

Season: .266 AVG, 2 HRs, 32 RBIs, 48 Runs, 9 SBs

It was a little over one week ago that Pagan was able to steal 3 bases against the Padres. He could pull another trick up his sleeves once again in San Diego.
