*Top hitters and pitchers highlight exceptional matchups that may include stars, lesser-known players and those on your waiver wires.
When I put together my top hitters and pitchers I factor in several things. First, prior matchup history, whether the hitter is hot and the pitcher’s history against that type of batter. Also, these matchups are normally released in the morning so make sure that you double-check the weather leading up to games in case they were postponed or the player got the day off.

Asdrubal Cabrera vs. A.J. Burnett – hitting .375 (6/16) with a 2B, 2 HR, 4 RBI and 3 walks

Domonic Brown vs. Jordan Zimmerman – hitting .500 (7/14) with 3 2B and 3 RBI
I think I just threw up suggest to use him in any lineups today. (Editors Note: me too)
Adrian Beltre vs. T.J. House – hitting .500 (1/2) with an RBI (Love me some Alex Rios today too)
Beltre is hitting .346 against LHP this season and House is allowing a .328 BA to right-handed hitters. Simple math, folks.
Miguel Cabrera vs. Tyler Matzek – no previous history
Miggy is hitting a cool .321 with 7 dingers at home this season. Matzek really hasn’t wowed anyone in his first 9 starts this season and right-handers are hitting .297 against him.
Ricky’s HR Guarantee: Adam LaRoche
