Brayan Pena (CIN) – The catcher position is a great position to obtain salary relief tonight. Out of the available options (all below average hitters), Pena brings the best value. Pena usually hits fifth against RHP and he’s a switch hitter (good for his DFS value since he will always have the platoon edge). Aaron Harang has solid surface statistics but he’s allowing too much aerial contact (career high 47 percent FB rate this season). Pena is priced close to the bare minimum around the industry (minimum priced on FanDuel). He’s my favorite punt option at the catcher position but that’s mostly due to his price tag and spot in the lineup, not because of his skills.
