IZTURIS, HEISEY ARE FEATURED EARLY BARGAINS
Maicer Izturis is the top bargain in the early games, as Wednesday’s schedule is heavily populated with afternoon matchups. Izturis, who is priced at $3,500 on DraftKings, is 8-for-13 with a double, triple and a home run against Detroit starter Rick Porcello. Cincinnati’s Chris Heisey (3,800) is another prime discount, as he now gets the chance to play consistently to keep his stroke warm, and he is 6-for-12 with three home runs against St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook.
Jon Jay is at 3,500 and has five hits in 14 at-bats with a double and triple against Homer Bailey. Gerardo Parra is playing well early and has three hits in six at-bats against Jonathan Sanchez, who starts for Pittsburgh. Gathering a few bargains in the early games can make sure you will be able to slide in Wade Miley (8,600) as one pitcher, as the current Pirates who have faced him have a combined .212 average against the Arizona starter. Current Tampa Bay hitters are batting .234 against Derek Holland (8,400).
Players to strongly consider in the night games include Denard Span (17 for 35, 4 doubles, 4 RBI vs. Gavin Floyd), Shane Victorino ( 3 for 3 with a double and home run against Jake Arrieta) David DeJesus (12 for 26 with a double, triple and homer against Kyle Lohse), Daniel Nava (3-for-5 with a HR against Arrieta, if he plays), Nate McLouth (6-for-20 with three doubles against Ryan Dempster) and Salvador Perez (4 for 7 with a double against Liam Hendriks).
