For Thursday, my choice was an easy one - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest for a $5 entry fee. Today’s population is American League only - but hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.
After three top-six finishes in the AL Cy Young Award voting in the last three years, 2015 may finally be Chris Sale’s year. In 104 career innings against the Kansas City Royals, the 26-year-old has a 2.68 ERA. There should be more ahead from where that came.
Though he is facing Sale, Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain is a great roster filler at just $2700. You were expecting the steals, which he has, with an AL-best five, but how about this bonus - 12 RBI in 14 games and a league-leading .438 OBP?
Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts is off to a steady .294 start with eight runs scored and eight RBI in his first 13 games. His price today is right at $3600.
