GERMAN MARQUEZ-

FIRST BASE

MARK REYNOLDS

· Cheap for playing in Coors against a lefty

· Solid against LHP in his career


JUSTIN SMOAK

· Smoak smashes the sinker with a .288 ISO

· Smoak is cheap just like the rest of the Jays offense

· Really enticing stack here to pair with the Rockies


SECOND BASE

ROBINSON CANO

· Pablo Lopez has been average so far this season

· Cano has crushed RHP throughout his career


JONATHON SCHOOP

· Always low owned since he bats near the bottom of the lineup

THIRD BASE

NOLAN ARENADO

· Best lefty hitter in the league

· .410 BA with .513 ISO and .923 SLG against LHP this season

· Lauer has struggled against RHH with power


VLADIMIR GUERRERO JR.

· Very cheap at $3700

· Mentioned how much I like this Jays stack since all the hitters are so cheap and get a great matchup

· Covey only has a 14% strikeout rate


Short Stop

TREVOR STORY

· Hits LHP very well. .329 BA this season against LHP compared to .243 against LHP

FREDDY GALVIS
