My full lineup (for all games starting after 4 pm PT):

SP: Jake Arrieta ($59) -  The Cubs haven’t lost in Arrieta’s past 23 turns – pay the price, as the win is all but a guarantee.

SP: J.A. Happ ($39) -  Happ has produced two straight quality starts, and has beat the Yankees in Quality Start fashion in each of his previous two meetings this season with his division rivals. 

C: Stephen Vogt ($10) -  Vogt has done most all his damage against right-handed pitching this season, and he’ll face Minnesota RHP Tyler Duffey, who has allowed 11 runs in his past 12 IP.

1B: Joey Votto ($17) -  The Canadian Club is finally starting to heat up, having launched two home runs in his past four games. Now he’ll go to Colorado, where he’ll face Rockies RHP Jon Gray, who owns a 7.47 ERA at Coors this season.

2B: Neil Walker ($10) -  A very reasonably price for Walker, who has a couple of home runs and three multi-hit efforts in his past seven games. Walker will face White Sox RHP Mat Latos, who he’s produced a lofty .960 OPS against in 25 career ABs.

3B: Matt Carpenter ($22) -  I’ll happily buck up for Carpenter, who has hit .455 with three home runs in 33 career ABs against Milwaukee RHP Wily Peralta. That Carpenter is coming off a four-hit game on Monday only heightens the bullish feelings for Tuesday.

SS: Asdrubal Cabrera ($9) -  Was just looking for a low dollar shortstop that has a hope/prayer shot on Tuesday, and Cabrera fills the bill. He’s 3-for-8 with a home run in his past two games and faces White Sox RHP Mat Latos, who owns a 7.09 ERA in his past five starts.

OF: Matt Holliday ($14) -  Like Carpenter, Holliday has a history card against Milwaukee RHP Wily Peralta to believe in (1.026 OPS in 28 ABs). And Holliday comes into this one having delivered multiple hits in three straight games (2 HRs in that span, including a 467-foot blast on Monday).

OF: Corey Dickerson ($10) -  It’s a good time for Dickerson to end his HR draught (15 games), as he’ll face KC RHP Dillon Gee, who allowed three home runs in his last outing (@ Minnesota). Dickerson is 3-for-6 with a home run for his career against Gee.

OF: Nick Markakis ($9) -  Markakis is hitting .400 (6-for-15) in his past four games with 5 RBI. He’s not a bad way to save some DFS cash as he’ll face Giants RHP Jake Peavy, who he’s hitting .333 (7-for-21) against for his career.
