P. Jhoulys Chacin: Jhoulys Chacin gets to open up the season against his former team in San Diego. At Petco Park in 2017 Chacin held opposing hitters to a .172 average. Chacin has always been very effective vs right handed hitters limiting them to 23.9% hard contact last year. Spacious Petco Park helps with his tendency to allow hard hit line drives and fly balls to left handed hitters.

C. Martin Maldonado: My most used punt catcher today will be Martin Maldonado at $2900 on DK. The Angels have one of the highest implied run totals on the board today and with 14 homeruns last season Maldonado has some power upside in a matchup with the inconsistent Sean Manaea.

OF. Josh Reddick: A good left handed hitter against a right handed pitcher in Doug Fister who allowed a .365 WOBA with a 40% hard contact rate to left handed hitters last year. Reddick also sported a very good .363 WOBA against right handed pitchers last season with a 131 WRC.

OF. Mike Trout: I’m going right back to Trout today after his disappointing 0 for 6 performance on Opening Day. Trout has reached base in 9 of his 15 plate appearances vs Manaea including a pair of homeruns.
