Daily Baseball Fantasy League Primetime Top Picks
June 23rd 2016
Thursday’s nine game limited MLB schedule is always a challenge. It’s even more of a challenge when you have to cut that amount in half for Primetime only games. Got to find those deeper league players, and we’ve got your list right here. As usual, FanPicks baseball fantasy league primetime MLB contest (click to play) starts at 7PM EST time with 5 games on tap for player draft. Check out the who’s been hot over the past 10 games.
Jon Lester has earned wins in five straight starts. Last time out, he allowed a season-high 11 baserunners, but gave up only three runs in six innings to earn a win against the Pirates.
Zack Greinke has been on a roll winning each of his last seven starts with a 1.90 ERA over that stretch. In June, he is 4-0 with a 0.87 ERA. Greinke threw eight innings and allowed one run against the Phils his last time out.
Christian Friedrich has allowed one earned run in 19 road innings this year.
Wil Myers leads the Majors with nine home runs this month and is hitting .360/.419/.827. On the season, he’s hitting .290 with a team-high 16 dingers, while playing an elite defensive first base, as well.
Asdrubal Cabrera reached base three times and scored twice in Wednesday matchup against the Royals.
Marcell Ozuna ranks first among all National League outfielders in batting average (.321), home runs (15) and RBIs (43).
Zack Cozart is batting .284/.325/.513 with 11 homers and 30 RBIs in 62 games this season. He leads Cincinnati in hitting and with 18 doubles. He is also on pace for 25 homers, which would smash his career of 15.
Opposing pitchers have, indeed, paid a price against Matt Kemp this month. He’s hitting .370/.398/.519 in June, which includes a two-hit night in Wednesday’s 7-2 loss to the Orioles.
