Having spent perhaps a bit too much on the pitchers, the batters present a slight problem. Today, I like the hitters from the San Francisco Giants and the Toronto Blue Jays. Both are playing at home. From the Giants, I like Brandon Crawford ($4700) and Hunter Pence ($5000). From the Blue Jays, Josh Donaldson ($6100) will test our ability to select a team that fits below the budget ceiling. If unable to field Donaldson, I may go with Tyler Saladino ($2700), a much cheaper alternative.
If you have any money left, consider Rougned Odor ($5300), who has been on fire recently.
Note that rain is in the forecast for Minneapolis and summer showers for Boston.
Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and follow Pasko on Twitter @varnica123.
