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.

FanDuel has made some tweaks to their scoring criteria for 2016. Check that out here. FanDuel is also only available to play for money in specific states. See their website for more details to see if FanDuel is playable for cash in your home state.

Jon Gray ($8,200) has a great matchup on the road in PetCo. The Padres have been the highest strikeout team in baseball in the second half of the season with a strikeout rate just under 27%, and they've been the third worst offense by wRC+ at 83. This combines with a full season line of a 25% K% vs RHP, second highest, and an 81 wRC+, which is worst. Gray is holding batters to a .224/.322/.357 line on the road away from Coors, which is above average, and has a 3.88 FIP and 25% K% on the road. Gray has high strikeout upside against an offense that strikes out a lot and will be in position to prevent runs against a bad offense. Gray is opposed by below average Christian Friedrich, who has a 4.99 ERA and 4.66 FIP. Gray is priced reasonably and allows some flexibility for spending on hitting.

A hitter that stands out as great value at his price is Freddie Freeman ($3,300). Freeman is having the second best season of his career by wRC+ (148) and best by ISO (.264). He is hitting RHP to a 157 wRC+ and .296 ISO this year and is the #5 hitter in baseball in the second half by wRC+ at 175, behind only Joey Votto, Mike Trout, Brian Dozier and Miguel Cabrera. Freeman faces Bartolo Colon, who is crafty but hittable. Freeman is the 11th priced first baseman today.

The Royals get a park upgrade at the Cell and face James Shields, who has been one of the most ineffective pitchers in baseball with a 6.07 ERA and 6.22 FIP. Shields is allowing a .306/.373/.605 line to RHB with a 6.73 FIP and a .282/.369/.488 line to LHB with a 5.65 FIP. Sal Perez ($3,200) is on track to return to the lineup tomorrow and has hit RHP to above average levels for a catcher with a 99 wRC+ and .182 ISO.
