Pitcher: Casey Kelly, LG Twins ($8,800)
Kelly tallied 10 strikeouts in his last game and has notched two scoreless quality starts in four appearances this season. He hasn’t given up a single home run this year, which is encouraging.
Catcher: Dong Won Park, Kiwoom Heroes ($4,200)
Park is the next option down from Eui Ji Yang ($5,800). Park has a better batting average (.317), as well as more home runs (6) and RBIs (22). I wouldn’t pay up for Yang, whose price has risen by $400 after going 0-for-3 in his last outing.
First Base: Roberto Ramos, LG Twins ($4,200)
The home run leaders’ price has continued to rise, but he’s still a bargain. He’s in a bit of a slump but is still riding an eight game hitting streak with a .373 batting average. Another option to consider is Jin Sung Kang ($3,800), who has been moved from Catcher to 1B/OF.
Second Base: Sang Su Kim, Samsung Lions ($4,600)
Kim is a one of the better leadoff hitters in the slate. He’s third in OBP (.469) and should get plenty of opportunities to make an impact.
Shortstop: Ha Seong Kim, Kiwoom Heroes ($5,700)
Seong’s batting average (.237) doesn’t show what he’s capable of, but he’s put together some solid stretches. He’s pricey, but has more upside than the other shortstops. I think he’s worth paying up for against a pitcher with one inning of work under his belt this season.
Third Base: Jeong Choi, SK Wyverns ($4,500)
Choi has been underachieving for some time but has finally found his stride. He’s tallied double-digits in fantasy points for five straight games while totaling nine RBIs. I like his odds of keeping the hot streak going against one of the Dinos’ weaker starters.
Outfield: Yong Ho Jo, KT Wiz ($2,600)
Jo has put together a nice string of games and is batting .429. Only Jose Fernandez has a higher average at the plate. His upside isn’t high, but his league-high .520 OBP makes him worth rostering.
Outfield: Jae Hwan Kim, Doosan Bears ($5,500)
Kim had a great game against Tuesday and tallied 19 DKFP after going 2-for-5 with a home run against the KT Wiz. He’s facing a pitcher who has just eight strikeouts in 21 2⁄3 innings with a 7.06 ERA. He could put together a solid stretch throughout this week’s series.
