MLB Cash Draft Daily Fantasy Picks
It will be hard to match up with what Phillies pitcher Vince Velasquez did yesterday. But the stack is high with big names on the mound today, with the likes of Zack Greinke, Edinson Volquez and Dallas Keuchel. And we can’t let this confrontation between Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner go by unnoticed. The hype of this rivalry comes down to this two and who will take down the other. It’s a full slate of Major League Baseball games and we’ve got you covered with our list of MLB Cash Draft fantasy picks.
Pitcher : Zack Greinke – Arizona DiamondBacks
Struggling Arizona ace Zack Greinke would appear to have an excellent chance to get untrod with the Diamondbacks visiting San Diego to start a three-game series versus the light-hitting Padres. The newly-signed 206 million dollar man opened the season losing back-to-back starts for the first time since August 2014. Despite that, he is 6-1 with a sterling 1.56 ERA in 12 career starts against San Diego. Greike and the D-Backs look primed to sweep the series.
Catcher: Buster Posey – San Francisco Giants
Buster Posey came back from a foot injury on Thursday and went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Rockies, but reports says that his foot is getting better. He should be set to catch for a second straight day and motivated, when the Giants open up their rivalry series with the Dodgers.
First Baseman : Jose Abreu – Chicago White Sox
Chicago’s Jose Abreu is batting .354 with five homers, 18 RBIs, 17 hits and seven walks in 13 career match-ups against the Rays.
Second Baseman : Robinson Cano – Seattle Mariners
Robinson Cano is a lifetime .311 hitter in 407 games at the new Yankee Stadium.
Third Baseman : Manny Machadao – Baltimore Orioles
Baltimore’s Manny Machado collected a hit in all nine games he played this season.
Shortstop : Jose Ramirez – Cleveland Indians
Jose Ramirez has produced plenty of fair-ball drives in three of the five games he has played in this season.
Update : Out of the starting lineup.
Outfielder : Jose Bautista – Toronto Blue Jays
Bautista slugged away 21 home runs in 56 career games at Fenway Park.
Outfielder : Nomar Mazara – Texas Rangers

Outfielder : Jeremy Hazelbaker – St. Louis Cardinals
Jeremy Hazelbaker is another fantasy pick rookie outfielder, but with the Cards, who is riding an eight-game hitting streak.
