MLB
Monday, April 14, 2014 - TV schedule

7:00 p.m. - Atlanta at Philadelphia (ESPN)
10:00 p.m. - Oakland at L.A. Angels (ESPN)

WEATHER REPORT

-- Each day we'll provide a look at MLB cities with outdoor venues which have a 30 percent or more chance of precipitation. It's rather risky to insert guys into your Daily Fantasy lineup in games with a good chance of delay or postponement.

7:10 p.m. - Pittsburgh at Cincinnati (60 percent chance of showers)
8:05 p.m. - Seattle at Texas (0 percent chance of precipitation, 18-22 mph wind blowing out to RF)

BIG-TICKET ITEM (Salaries $10,000 and Above)

Albert Pujols, 1B, L.A. Angels (vs OAK): Reports of Pujols' demise were greatly exaggerated. He is starting to look like the Pujols of old, and it has a lot to do with the fact his foot is much healthier. Over the past five games, he has cranked three homers with six RBI, and he has hit safely in nine straight overall.

MID-LEVEL VALUES (Salaries between $8,000 and $9,999)

If you spend big up top, you’re going to need some fillers to bring down your average per player salary. Check out these steals from the bargain bin:

Jhonny Peralta, SS, St. Louis (at MIL): Peralta has rolled up impressive numbers against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza going back to their days battling in the American League Central. Peralta is 11-for-25 (.440) with two doubles, three RBI and a .960 OPS all-time against Garza, making him a decent play on a shorter schedule at a mid-level price.

Anthony Rendon, 2B-3B, Washington (at MIA): Rendon has manager to roll up six multi-hit performances in his first 12 games this season. He faces a favorable matchup against Miami Marlins LHP Brad Hand.

Justin Smoak, 1B, Seattle (at TEX): Smoak is a left-handed bat who could benefit greatly by a stiff wind blowing out to right field. He'll face Colby Lewis, who is making his first start of the season and might exhibit a little rust.

Eric Stults, SP, San Diego (vs COL): There are several reasons to like Stults in this matchup. The Rockies are 1-4 in their past five meetings with the Padres, and 1-4 in their past five trips to Petco Park. And the Rox are 14-38 in their past 52 road games against a left-handed starter, while the Padres are 6-1 in their past seven against a team with a losing record. The Padres are also 9-4 in their past 13 home outings vs RHP, and 35-16 in their past 51 as a home favorite.

Ben Zobrist, 2B-OF, Tampa Bay (at BAL): Zobi has had a nice history against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen, going 10-for-23 (.435) with a double, homer, three RBI and a 1.067 OPS. Sure, it isn't a giant history, but he is also a good start since he is hitting .314 (33-for-105) with 12 doubles, a triple and a homer with 11 RBI and an .895 OPS since the start of the 2011 season in Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

THE BARGAIN BIN (Salaries less than $7,999)

Colby Lewis, SP, Texas (vs SEA): Lewis will make his regular season debut, and he'll face a Mariners team which is 1-4 against a right-handed starter. The Rangers are also 5-1 in Lewis' past six home starts against the Mariners, who have won just 32 of their past 101 games in Arlington.
