Yoan Moncada, 2B, Chicago White Sox

FanDuel Price: $3,500

With Jose Berrios looking extremely popular tonight, if you elect to go away from him in tournaments, you can consider targeting Chicago White Sox hitters against him as a leverage play.

Berrios is off to a nice start in 2018, but he isn't without his issues, including a modest 8.7% swinging-strike rate and lucky .222 BABIP. Furthermore, against lefties he's allowed a career .348 wOBA with a 12.1% walk rate. He may be the best pitcher on the board, but he's hardly infallible.

Therefore, using someone like the switch-hitting Yoan Moncada is an appealing way to attack Berrios. Moncada strikes out a ton, so he isn't without risk, but he's shown nice power in his young career. He's posted a 54.2% hard-hit rate so far this season, and produced a 42.0% hard-hit rate against righties in 2017. If Moncada can put a hurting on Berrios, it will be like double-dipping against the rest of the field.
