Russell Martin (TOR) – Martin has been a good hitter against LHP (.341 wOBA, .171 ISO against southpaws since 2012) and he draws a phenomenal matchup. We love picking on John Danks (.355 wOBA, 1.52 HR/9 and 16 percent K rate against RHBs in the last three seasons), especially when he pitches at home (US Cellular Field is an elite hitting venue). Martin is part of the best offense in baseball against LHP and he hits behind elite hitters like Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. Martin is ranked inside our top 20 hitters and he seems a touch underpriced on a site like FanDuel ($3,300).
