Charlie Blackmon, OF, Colorado Rockies

Price: $5,100

With this slate not offering much to get excited about for stud pitching (Zack Greinke is the only pitcher priced above $9,000 and he draws a really rough matchup with a Houston Astros team that ranks first in wRC+ and strikes out at the lowest rate in the majors against righties) we go straight to the hitters.

Tonight's Coors Field matchup between the Colorado Rockies and Atlanta Braves has a hefty 12.0 over/under, and the Rockies' 6.50 implied total is the day's highest mark by a big margin -- no surprise as they draw a matchup with righty Julio Teheran, who has only managed a 4.97 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) on the year.

Charlie Blackmon has been hugely productive against righties this season, with a .419 wOBA and .292 ISO on a 38.7% hard-hit rate and 40.3% fly-ball rate, and his numbers have been especially ridiculous in his 163 plate appearances against righties at Coors, with that wOBA jumping to .529 and his ISO to .449.
