Today is June 12th, and MLB action is in full swing. Here are some players you should consider putting into your Fanduel lineup.
1.) Matt Kemp OF
Matt Kemp has returned to form with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and tonight Los Angeles will be facing Bartolo Colon for the Texas Rangers. The fact that Colon can still pitch effectively at his age is remarkable, however, he still pounds that strike zone and gives up a lot of hits. Having 18 hits in his last 15 games, Kemp looks to be on a nice little hot streak right now and would be a great player to insert into your lineup.
2.) Brandon Crawford SS
Sticking to the NL West, Brandon Crawford and the San Francisco Giants travel to Miami to face the Marlins and will oppose Trevor Richards on the mound. Richards has an 0-3 record, with a 5.02 ERA and has struggled in recent games. Crawford is on a tear in his last seven games, posting a .524 average. Look for Crawford to do some damage today against the Marlins.
3.) Freddie Freeman 1B
The Atlanta Braves have been a breakout team this year, and Freddie Freeman finally has a supporting cast. Freeman is still the same consistent hitter and improves the Braves in every way possible. Today, Freeman and the Braves face a struggling Mets team, and a struggling Zack Wheeler on the mound. Wheeler is currently posting a 2-4 record and a 4.57 ERA. Freeman is batting .383 in his last 15 games and will look to keep that average going up today against the Mets.
4.) J.D. Martinez RF
J.D. Martinez has been a huge piece of the puzzle for the Boston Red Sox this year and has been contributing in every way possible. Batting .311, Martinez looks to improve that average today against a struggling Baltimore Orioles team with David Hess on the mound. Hess has a 2-2 record with a 3.07 ERA.
5.) Miles Mikolas P
Miles Mikolas has been on fire for the St. Louis Cardinals, boasting a 7-1 record with a 2.27 ERA. Today, he faces a struggling San Diego Padres team, which just cannot seem to get anything going. Look for Mikolas to have a big day and be a great pick for your lineup.
