04/15/18 Slick Picks

Jose Martinez – A not so well known player that people need to know about. Martinez is off to an insane start to the year, but people still don’t ever talk about him. Hitting .380 with 3 homeruns already, he comes into the day facing one of the worst pitchers in the league. This matchup will also be taking place at Great American Ballpark, which is one of my favorite places to target hitters. Over the last three years, Bailey has given up a .317 batting average. Although Martinez has been a lefty killer over the last few years, he has been very solid against righties, and all of his damage this year has come against righties. He comes in way too cheap today.

 

Jefry Marte – The Angels are by far the best stack on the slate today, but for good reason, everyone will just look at the top of the order. This will let us get a guy like Marte, who is crushing the ball right now, underowned. With Ohtani on the mound, we should not have to worry about Marte missing out on an at bat. Marte has been more successful against lefties, even though he still has only a .243 average. His homerun percentage is much higher against them. I like the idea of stacking the bottom of this order a ton.

 

BONUS PLAY

Kevin Kiermaier – He will probably be chalk, but I did not think it would be right to not mention him in this article. Kiermaier is a player with a ton of potential, and gets an awesome matchup today.   Hitting in the third spot, Kiermaier offers both homerun and stolen base upside. He faces a very weak pitcher in Lively, and I think the Rays destroy him today. He is also way too cheap, and on a slate where I believe that paying up for stud pitchers is the way too go, these three will give you an awesome start to your lines.
