Nick Friar:

(Anthony) Santander at $3.9K. ... Drew (Rasmussen) has a 26.1% line-drive rate against left-handed hitters over his last four starts. I know he has a 2.53 ERA against left-handed hitters in that stretch, but he’s got a 4.29 FIP (during that time frame).

Santander has four extra-base hits in his last six games — the last two have been home runs. I know his ISO on the month (against righties) hasn’t been that great, but he’s his a healthy amount of line drives and a lot of fly balls against right-handed pitching, so I love him in this spot against Rasmussen.

Nick’s Pick: Anthony Santander ($3,900)
