This could well end up being a contrarian play for Tuesday given Dinelson Lamet’s dominance over right-handed hitters this season, but it’s also one that could really pay off.

The Braves will see veteran right-hander John Lackey, who has surrendered an NL-high 24 long balls on the year.
Carlos Asuaje, 2B, SDP at COL (,000) With a couple of young, inconsistent hurlers on the mound at Coors Field tonight, we definitely want to expose both sides of this one. Asuaje may not have much to offer in the power department, but he has been red hot over the past couple weeks.
