5 pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Clayton Kershaw – 11.0DK – Love Kershaw here.. The Twins have struck out the 9th most versus LHP over the last 2 weeks and 3rd most on the season. Kershaw has the highest swinging strike rate on the slate at 15.6% and also the highest CSW% at 32.7%. Will be overweight here..
  2. Kevin Gausman – 10.7DK – 14.4% Swinging strike rate and a 30.1  CSW% on the season and is facing a Yankees team that he dominated for 40 DK points a few weeks back.
  3. Cristian Javier – 9.6DK – The Cubs have struck out the 4th most versus RHP over the last 2 weeks and Javier has been outstanding this season. He has a 13% swinging strike rate and a 26.6% CSW%.
  4. Seth Lugo – 8.0DK – Not a lot of cheaper pitching options on tonight’s slate. Lugo gets the Royals at home here. While they have improved over the past couple weeks, most of that was done at home and now they are in the pitcher friendly confines of Petco Park.
  5. Jordan Montgomery – 7.4DK – Lefties versus the Brew Crew is a legit thing. They have struck out the most versus LHP on the season and have been a bottom 5 offense. Love Monty here.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Seattle Mariners –  I am going to keep Coors field out of these articles. You have to choose whether to play them or not, but they will always be popular! I LOVE the Mariners here in Boston tonight. Pivetta has given up the 2nd highest EV of any pitcher on the slate so far this season at 93.2 MPH and also has the highest barrel % allowed at 15.4%.
  2. Arizona Diamondbacks – Kyle Muller is straight trash as is the Athletics pen. Guys like Moreno, Walker, Perdomo, and Gurriel are my favorite options here.
  3. San Diego Padres – Brady Singer is giving up the highest EV on the slate on the season at 94.2 MPH and a 58% hard hit %. Love the Pads at home here.
  4. Texas Rangers – Jared Schuster hasn’t been good at all for my Bravos. He has the highest xfip on the slate at a massive 8.02 and has a massive 20% walk rate. Not a recipe for success at all here.
  5. Oakland Athletics – Tommy Henry has also been atrocious this season. He has a massive 6.26 xFIP which is 2nd worst on the slate behind Shuster. These guys are cheap and allow to pay up for 2 stud pitchers.
