By now you should all know the Daily Dime drill. We examine daily prices for ten players, looking for bargains and busts. Let's get to work...
Eight to play
Dexter Fowler, OF, at Col (Matzek), $3100 at FanDuel: Fowler is a career .299/.391/.433 hitter against left-handed pitching, and Rockies starter Tyler Matzek shouldn't scare anyone away. Matzek has been dominant against LHBs, but righty hitters have hammered him (.306/.374/.474 in 386 PAs). I'm using a multi-Cub formation in multiple lineups on Friday, featuring Fowler and Jorge Soler ($3700).
Taijuan Walker, SP, at Oak (Pomeranz), $7400: After a brilliant spring (27.0 IP, 2 ER, 26 Ks), Walker takes his first turn of the regular season in a friendly road park. The A's have hit well enough to open the year, but they don't field the game's most intimidating lineup. Walker is just the ninth-most expensive pitcher on Friday's slate, but he's a serious talent.
