I feel very good about my Star Fantasy Leagues daily fantasy baseball lineup today. I think there are some nice, economical pitching options for tonight which has allowed me to build a strong lineup. So, join me over at SFL and see what you can do. And if you use the promo code “SJN”, you can get a 40% deposit bonus.

(C) Jarrod Saltalamacchia $6,882 – After Monday’s 14-inning marathon, Saltalamacchia had a well-deserved night off yesterday. He may have been the MVP of that game, going 4-for-7 with three RBI. That is the latest strong performance from Salty, who is hitting a solid .285 on the year.

(1B) Jeff Baker $6,445 – Baker is making a case for needing to be in the Rangers’ everyday lineup. He’s hitting .333 this year with nine home runs and has four in the last week. If he gets the start for Texas tonight, he gets the start for me.

(2B) Derek Dietrich $5,663 – Dietrich hasn’t been a superstar this year since joining the Marlins’ lineup, hitting just .228. He has shown some power, though, with six homers this season, including three in the last five games.

(3B) Pedro Alvarez $5,205 – It’s been boom or bust for Alvarez this year, but he’s coming off a booming performance last night with three hits and a home run, bringing his total to 14 on the year. If he gets a hold of another one tonight, he’ll be well worth the pick here.

(SS) Troy Tulowitzki $10,784 – The National League’s leading hitter just keeps tearing it up in Colorado, hitting .520 in the last seven days with 13 hits. Tonight, he faces Ross Ohlendorf, against whom he is 3-for-10 with two home runs.

(OF) Carlos Gonzalez $10,534 – Gonzalez is another Rockie who is mashing, with four home runs and 15 RBI in seven games. Like Tulowitzki, he too hits well against Ohlendorf, having gone for 4-for-12 with a homer in his career.

(OF) Matt Holliday $7,890 – Holliday is riding an eight-game hitting streak, during which he’s increased his season average by 26 points. Tonight, he faces the Mets’ Dillon Gee, against whom batters are hitting .308 this year.

(OF) Giancarlo Stanton $5,824 – The Marlins’ biggest star returned from a month-and-a-half-long absence two nights ago and had a hit in each of those games and found his power stroke with a home run last night. He’ll face Alfredo Figaro, tonight, who has given up nine homers in just 39.2 innings this season. I’ll use Stanton while I can still get him at this price.

(U) Brett Gardner $7,115 – Gardner is finally coming around, with 15 hits during his current eight-game hitting streak. While he hasn’t been stealing as many bases and one would typically expect from him, he’s still always a threat to steal when he’s on, and he’s getting on.

(SP) Shelby Miller $14,765 – Miller maintained his season-long dominance with a win in his last outing against a good Diamondbacks offense. He has a 1.91 ERA on the year with 81 strikeouts and gets the Mets tonight.

(SP) Phil Hughes $10,255 – C.C. Sabathia didn’t have much luck against Oakland last night, so I’m hoping Hughes will have a better go of it. He went seven scoreless innings in his last start in Seattle and went eight scoreless with nine strikeouts in his only other start against the Athletics a month ago.

(RP) Rex Brothers $1,500 – He’s not a guy who usually ends up in a daily lineup, but with Rafael Betancourt out, Brothers is the ninth inning guy. He has a 0.31 ERA this season and, with the offense I’m expecting from Tulowitzki and Gonzalez, I hope to pick up a save here, too.

(P) Esmil Rogers $6,622 – Rogers has only started two games this year and hasn’t made it past the fourth inning in either of them. He has been good, though, combining for 7.1 innings pitched while allowing just one run and striking out 10. If he can make it through five and get a win, he would be a very good value play here.
