Week 11 is loaded with a full slate of games, as each team plays an interleague series. With all 30 teams in line to play a full seven games, there will be plenty of great matchups to exploit.

Best Hitter Matchups for Week 11

J.J. Hardy, SS, Baltimore Orioles 

Hardy is batting just .208 on the season but has turned it on of late, totaling five hits over his last five contests with two RBIs and two runs scored. Hardy and the O’s get two great matchups in Week 11 with a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies, followed by a weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Both the Phillies and Jays rank among the worst pitching staffs in baseball and their home ballparks rank in the Top 10 in home runs allowed.

Chase Headley, 3B, New York Yankees

Headley and the Yankees open up Week 11 with a four-game series against the Miami Marlins, whose pitching staff ranks as the seventh worst in baseball. The Yankees will play the first two in Miami, then travel home for the final two games of the series.

Headley, who is coming off a nine-game hit streak, has been hitting second in a solid Yankees’ lineup where he’ll continue to see plenty of at-bats and have plenty of opportunities to thwart Marlins’ pitching. With five games at Yankees’ Stadium against the Marlins and Tigers, Headley is a fine play in your Week 11 lineup.

Mike Moustakas, 3B, Kansas City Royals

Moustakas has been hitting well all year – as evident of his .318 average, and he and the Royals will get a dream four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers. They will play the first two games of the series at Miller Park – 2015’s top-rated hitter’s haven, then home for two games to close out the series. In addition, the Brewers’ pitching staff ranks as the fourth worst in baseball and one that should certainly be exploited.

Carlos Correa, SS, Houston Astros

In case you are not starting the rookie phenom already, Correa needs to be in your Week 11 lineup. With just a handful of professional at-bats under his belt, Correa has swung that bat extremely well and is also stealing bases. He continues to bat in the heart of the Astros lineup where he’ll get plenty of opportunities to drive in runs.

In Week 11, Correa and the Astros open up a four-game series against the worst pitching staff in all of baseball – the Colorado Rockies. The Astros will play the first two games of the series at home and close out the series at the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. Week 11 is a fine week to start your Correa with confidence.

Be sure and check back next Friday where I’ll discuss which hitters to exploit in the Week 12 Hitting Planner.
