With a handful of games this afternoon and 11 more tonight, Major League Baseball is ready to help us through the humpday as we quickly move into the third month of the season. The Red Sox and Twins are scheduled to play two today giving us 16 total games on the schedule. Whether you choose to play the five early games, wait until tonight’s action, or play an all-day competition, there are some matchups to target for your fantasy baseball team based on batter vs pitcher splits.
To help you pinpoint the batter vs pitcher matchups to attack, you can find my top 10 each morning here at Fansided. Each day I try to include a variety of teams and positions while listing the hitters with the best head-to-head record against their probable opponent. Fantasy baseball owners know that past success is no guarantee of future results. However, previous head-to-head success is a good factor to consider when selecting your players.

Let’s jump right in to today’s top ten batter vs pitcher matchups starting out West where the Giants and Pirates wrap up their series.
Buster Posey-C-San Francisco Giants: The Giants will look to avoid the sweep at home as they face Francisco Liriano. If the Giants keep Buster Posey in the lineup (possibly at 1b) after he caught last night, he makes a good play based on his 5-9 (.556) career record against the Pirates southpaw although all five of those hits have been singles.
Torii Hunter-OF-Minnesota Twins: In Game Two of their twin-bill, the Twins take on Rick Porcello who they knocked around for six runs in his last start. One of the hitters who appears primed to take advantage of Porcello tonight is Torii Hunter who is 7-17 (.412) against Porcello in the past with two doubles, a home run, and eight RBI.
Martin Prado-3B-Miami Marlins: The Marlins host the Cubs tonight, and if you need some help at the hot corner check out Martin Prado. Prado has gone 5-7 (.714) in his career off Lester with three of those five hits being doubles.
