All 30 teams get back to business Tuesday, and some rosters will be looking slightly different. Pay attention to trade rumors during the day; you don’t want to lose out on points because Carlos Gonzalez was traded mid-afternoon. 15 night games means lots of variety of competition, making it a great day to enter larger contests to increase your chance of a big payday.

On the the lineup:

Today’s Pitchers: Godley & Price

Price has pitched amidst trade rumors before, and it shouldn’t affect his performance (Getty).

The value here comes from Godley, who made his MLB debut four days ago and pitched six scoreless innings to secure his first career big-league win. Godley faces a slightly tough challenge in Seattle, but the value here is too good to pass on. Spend that extra cap space on Price, who returns to his former team in Tampa, where he dominated in his lone start last season.

Featured Hitters: Schwarber & Ramirez

Ramirez boasts favorable numbers against CWS starter Jeff Samardzjia (Getty).

The value pick here is Schwarber, but keep an eye on his status for Tueday. Joe Maddon has indicated he wants to keep “Schwar Machine” fresh for the fall, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he rested today.

Elsewhere, Hanley Ramirez has a great matchup tonight against Chicago’s Jeff Samardzjia. Ramirez is hitting .421 in 19 at-bats against Samardzjia, and should continue to hit tonight. Don’t forget about Robbie Cano, either. Cano is one of the hottest bats in MLB, hitting .393 with 7 RBI in his last seven games.

Turn $3 into $800 with DraftKings’ MLB $10K Deep Moonshot fantasy contest, which gets underway Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m. Eastern.

1B: Albert Pujols, LA Angels, $4,300
