- To Hit a Home Run: Mark Canha (+300) – Canha has been hot lately, with five hits in Oakland's last three games and six home runs in the month of July alone. Additionally, 12 of Canha's 17 home runs have come against right-handed pitchers this season, so he could go deep against Chicago's righty starter Kyle Hendricks.
