Rhys Hoskins / Josh Naylor | +2100 at Fanduel
If it weren’t for his teammate Kyle Schwarber, Rhys Hoskins would be getting more shine for a great season. With 17 home runs and 42 RBIs, the power hitting first baseman has helped the Phillies to stay in the battle for the NL Wildcard. He faces a solid opponent in Miles Mikolas but a hittable one. Mikolas’ average exit velocity is higher than 67% of the league and his hard hit % is in the 75 th percentile. A great combination for anyone looking to get over the wall.
We’re double dipping on the first basemen today. Josh Naylor provides a little more value here but he’s been one of the hottest hitters recently. 3 home runs in his last 7 games and a 5 game hit streak to boot. He missed Sunday but if Naylor is in the lineup today (which appears likely) he’s a must take to go yard.
