I list a quick write up of 5 players a fantasy owner can consider using today.

Reminder: Always double check the lineup card before rosters lock to make sure that a player you've chosen to roster is playing that day, and check the weather to make sure your players won't get rained out of their game.

Salary relief

Shortstop: Jhonny Peralta ($2,600) vs Jeff Locke

In 270 PA dating back to the start of 2014, Peralta has hit LHP to a 134 wRC+ and .238 ISO. Locke has been about an average to below average pitcher vs RHB in just under 200 IP vs RHB the last two seasons.

Catcher: Stephen Vogt ($2,300) vs Drew Hutchison

In 292 PA vs RHP this year, Vogt has hit them to a 134 wRC+ and .219 ISO. He gets a huge park upgrade in Rogers Centre and faces a RHP who has been below average vs LHB both this year and throughout his career.

Outfield: Josh Reddick ($2,500) vs Drew Hutchison

Reddick's price and production vs RHP isn't far off from teammate Stephen Vogt. In 305 PA vs RHP this year, Reddick has hit them to a 142 wRC+ and .193 ISO. Reddick also gets a huge park upgrade in Rogers Centre.

Middle tier

Adam Lind ($3,400) vs Dan Haren

Lind has hit RHP to a 142 wRC+ and .223 ISO in 335 PA this year and faces a RHP who has allowed a .273/.319/.519 slash to LHB with a hideous 5.85 FIP. Haren's average fastball velocity has tanked in recent years, down from 89 mph in 2013 to 86 mph this year.

More expensive

Mike Trout ($4,700) vs Carlos Rodon

Rodon can't keep righties off base. He has allowed a brutal .307/.414/.491 slash to RHB this year with a 14% walk rate and 4.83 FIP. Trout owns a 170 wRC+ in 280 PA vs LHP since the start of 2014 and gets a park upgrade in Chicago.
