Yasmani Grandal (LAD) – Grandal has been a nice hitter against RHP (.366 wOBA, .199 ISO against RHP since 2012) and he draws a plus matchup against Bartolo Colon (21 percent hard minus soft hit rate and 1.08 HR/9 allowed to LHBs in the last three seasons). While I view him as the superior play over Jonathan Lucroy (better skills vs. RHP), Grandal’s lineup spot isn’t secure (usually hits fifth but there’s always a chance that he could hit seventh or worse) so I’m leaning on price points (Grandal is the cheaper value on DraftKings while Lucroy is cheaper on FanDuel).
