Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and OF Gregory Polanco are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Wednesday, July 27. 3B David Freese will start at first base and is batting second. 2B Sean Rodriguez will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Freese has only three hits in his last 17 at-bats but is hitting .328 with four home runs and 11 RBI against left-handed pitchers this season. He should be a fine starting candidat for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Rodriguez has also posted solid numbers against lefties in 2016, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
