WEDNESDAY’S DAILY FANTASY BASEBALL PREGAME UPDATE
As mentioned earlier, weather is not a concern at any of the parks throughout Major League Baseball. Enjoy a worry-free night for a change.
BOSTON RED SOX
The Red Sox have OF Jacoby Ellsbury ($5,000 KINGS, $4,500 DUEL) (rest) back in the lineup after a night of rest. He is in his center field spot and customary leadoff position.
The Tigers are once again without 3B Miguel Cabrera (hip), as he misses a second straight game. 3B/OF Matt Tuiasosopo ($3,500 KINGS, $3,300 DUEL) gets the start in left field, and he is in the three-hole for the second consecutive game. 3B/OF Don Kelly ($3,700 KINGS, $2,600 DUEL) makes another start at third base. 2B Hernan Perez ($2,000 KINGS, $2,500 DUEL) is batting eighth and starting atsecond base. Like Tuesday, he is a solid option to save salary and spread it around elsewhere.
KANSAS CITY ROYALS
The Royals will give OF Alex Gordon (rest) the night off against the Baltimore Orioles. He has collected just five hits over his past 41 at-bats (.122). OF David Lough ($3,100 KINGS, $2,600 DUEL) gets the nod in left field for manager Ned Yost.
Phillies OF Domonic Brown (concussion) is dealing with concussion-like symptoms, and is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game at St. Louis.
Pirates INF Kyle Waldrop ($3,000, available only at DraftDay.com) bats second for manager Clint Hurdle. Lucky him, as he gets to face Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg ($9,500 KINGS, $7,800 DUEL). Lots of luck, kid!
SAN DIEGO PADRES
Padres OF Carlos Quentin ($4,700 KINGS, $3,700 DUEL) (wrist) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game at Milwaukee. Quentin in the third spot of manager Bud Black's lineup and starting in left field.
TAMPA BAY RAYS
Rays OF Wil Myers ($4,700 KINGS, $3,700 DUEL) (wrist) apparently made it through his game Tuesday without any issues, as he bats cleanup and starts in right field for a second consecutive game.
Nationals SS Ian Desmond (blister) is out of the starting lineup due to a blister on his left hand, so 2B/3B Anthony Rendon ($3,300 KINGS, $2,900 DUEL) gets a starting nod at shortstop. OF Bryce Harper (knee), who recently received treatment for his knee, is out of the lineup, too.
