    Five Pitchers to Consider

  1. Joe Ryan, $10,300 (DK) @ LA Angels – Ryan has been on cruise control most of the year and is coming off six shutout innings against the Cubs striking out 10. It was his 3rd double-digit strikeout game of the year. Over his last 4 starts (25 innings) he has given up only 3 earned runs while striking out 28.
  2. Sandy Alcantara, $9,800 (DK) @ SF Giants – The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner has struggled so far this year but should bounce back here in San Francisco. I like both sides of this pitching matchup in a game with the lowest total on the board.
  3. Anthony DeSclafani, $8,700 (DK) vs Miami Marlins – DeSclafani is coming off a couple rough outings against Arizona and Washington. I think he has a big bounce back spot here at home against a Miami offense that I’m not afraid of.
  4. Matt Boyd, $7,100 (DK) @ Washington Nationals – With limited options up top tonight, Boyd makes for a cheap option in a solid matchup on the road in Washington.
  5. Martin Perez, $7,700, (DK) vs Colorado Rockies – Solid price tag here on Perez in a solid matchup at home against Colorado. I never mind attacking the Rockies away from Coors field in a good matchup and they are still without CJ Cron who is on the IL.

    Five Stacks to Consider

  1. Toronto Blue Jays vs Kyle Gibson (R) – After putting up a season-high 35.2 fantasy points back on April 22nd (Detroit), Gibson has really struggled. Over his nest 4 starts he has allowed 15 earned runs in just 22 innings. The Blue Jays explode here tonight.
  2. Texas Rangers vs Karl Kauffmann (R) – This is a terrible spot for Kauffmann to make his MLB debut. This Rangers offense has really been good at times this year and just welcomed the return of Corey Seager to the lineup. Full stack here sign me up!
  3. Chicago White Sox vs Zach Greinke (R) – Love this Chicago offense right now and they draw a great home matchup against dusty Zach Greinke. Luis Robert has been on fire at the plate with homers in 4 of his last 5 games. With the return of Tim Anderson and Yoan Moncada this offense is once again a solid nightly fantasy option.
  4. Houston Astros vs Ken Waldichuk (L) – Great spot for this Houston offense to explode against Waldichuk and the awful Oakland bullpen. There is a chance that Jose Altuve will be back to make his season debut. Don’t leave out Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez out of your stacks. They both hit lefties well.
  5. New York Mets vs Cal Quantrill (R) – The Mets offense has struggled at times this year but took 2 out of 3 last series against the Rays and look to get on a roll. If they can get the top of the order hitting they added some nice pieces with the recent call up of prospect  Mark Vientos to go along with other youngsters Brett Baty and Francisco Alvarez.
