Early signs point to another terrific season from Dustin Pedroia, which means he should probably be in your DraftKings daily fantasy baseball lineups, according to Tom Caron.
Pedroia will dig in against Baltimore Orioles pitcher Mike Wright, who owned a 6.04 ERA in 12 games last season. Part of those struggles came against Pedroia himself, who took Wright deep in one of his two at-bats.
Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano and Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez also are good bets. Cano is a career .405 hitter against Derek Holland with two home runs and nine RBIs, while Fernandez faces a struggling New York Mets offense ranked 28th in the majors in runs scored.
