*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.

Top DFS hitters for today:
Andrew McCutchen vs. Mike Fiers – hitting .545 (6/11) with 4 HRs & 9 RBIs
David Wright vs. Kevin Correia – hitting .765 (13/17) with 3 2Bs, 3 HRs & 6 RBIs
HOLY BATMAN! That’s insane numbers for a hitter/pitching matchup.
Carlos Santana vs. Brett Oberholtzer – hitting .667 (2/3) with a HR, a RBI & a BB
Jose Reyes vs. Chris Archer – hitting .600 (6/10) with 2 RBIs & 2 BBs
Adam Dunn vs. Chris Capuano – hitting .259 (7/27) with 2 2Bs, 2 HRs, 5 RBIs & 3 BBs
All the numbers suggest this is a terrible matchup for Dunn but LHH are hitting .318 against Caps this year. I like it even if it doesn’t look good on paper.
Desmond Jennings & James Lone vs. Drew Hutchinson – both guys have taken Hutchinson deep this year and Hutch is on a slide right now, love both of these guys today.
Ricky’s HR Guarantee: McCutchen
Top DFS Pitcher for today:
Jason Vargas vs. Texas Rangers – Over his last two starts Vargas has gone 16 innings, only giving up 1 run with 7 Ks. Love the matchup against the low Rangers.
Chris Sale vs. New York Yankees – Want to pay for pitching today? Sale is the guy, last outing against the Yankees, 6 innings, 1 hit and 10 Ks. Sale = Money.
Movie of the Day – When the Game Stands Tall – You know the story but it’s still an amazing story at that. Very good movie and worth a watch.
