Pitching on both Saturday and Sunday was expected to be especially fluid in terms of hits allowed according to the G911 forecasted outcome, thus placing the Rockies and Diamondbacks hitters in the spotlight.
We especially like the Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu.
LeMahieu has hit six off of thirteen at bats versus Arizona probable starter Shelby Miller and is batting .375 over the past seven days.
He has also been solid hitting against Sunday Diamondbacks probable starter Patrick Corbin, going 10-for-25 with two home runs.
ESPN.com notes that his .492 slugging percentage trails a number of Rockies regulars, but the second baseman's .388 OBP is invaluable for a lineup teeming with dangerous power hitters.
Carlos Gonzalez is probably the second hottest hitting prospect for DFS players though he should be avoided on Sunday despite the likelihood of another explosive scoring game.
