Five Pitchers to Consider

1. Nestor Cortes, $10,600 (DK) vs Chi White Sox – Cortes has been nothing short of brilliant so far this year. In his last two starts against the White Sox & the Rangers he gave up only one earned run while striking out 17 batters in 15.1 innings of work. The power left-handed pitcher now has 49 strikeouts in only 40 innings in 2022.

2. Eric Lauer, $10,400 (DK) vs Washington – Lauer has had a “breakout” start to the season for the Brewers. He took the loss in Miami his last time out but prior to that had only given up 3 earned runs in his previous 25.1 innings of work. He struck out a career-high 13 Phillies back on April 24th and draws a nice matchup at home vs the Nationals.

3. Robby Ray, $8,000 (DK) @ Boston – In his last two starts, the reigning Cy Young Award winner has started to show some form as he is coming off wins over the Mets and Phillies. He has struggled with his control at times, but always has the strikeout upside we are looking for as evidence of his 19 strikeouts the last two starts.

4. Chase Silseth, $7,800 (DK) vs Oakland – Chase Silseth was impressive in his MLB debut last week when he beat Oakland 2-0. He worked 6 innings giving up only one hit and striking out four. That performance was enough to earn him another start vs Oakland again tonight.

5. Michael Wacha, $7,400 (DK) vs Seattle – The veteran right-hander will come off the 15-day IL tonight to get the start vs Seattle. Prior to his injury, Wacha was solid in his previous 5 starts to the year going 3-0 giving up only 4 earned runs in 26 innings on the year. He makes for a nice mid-range option tonight.

Five Stacks to Consider

1. New York Mets vs German Marquez (R) – If this game plays tonight (need to check the weather) the Mets will be the chalk stack in Coors Field tonight and for good reason. They are coming off back-to-back wins over St. Louis where they scored 18 runs on 22 hits and now get a great hitting environment. Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor are priced appropriately over $5,000 (on DK) but the rest of the team is very affordable.

2. New York Yankees vs Dallas Keuchel (L) – The veteran-lefty Dallas Keuchel slowed down a red hot Yankees offense in Chicago last time out going 5 innings in a no-decision. Look for the Yankees bats to rebound here with Aaron Judge & company at home.

3. Milwaukee Brewers vs Erick Fedde (R) – Always like targeting offenses vs Erick Fedde and tonight will be no different. The Brew Crew have a lot of lefty bats (Yelich, Wong, Tellez, Narvaez) that should line up well here. Hunter Renfroe co-leads (Adames) the team in home runs with nine.

4. Los Angeles Dodgers vs Ranger Suarez (R) – The Dodgers will be seeing Suarez for the second time in 6 days as they travel to Citizens Bank Park. Freddie Freeman will be one of my favorite plays on the board tonight.

5. Toronto Blue Jays vs Luis Castillo (R) – Castillo will only be making his third start since coming off the IL. The veteran has struggled in this two previous starts giving up 6 earned runs. The Blue Jays bats have been inconsistent of late but if they can get to Castillo early it could be a long night for the Reds bullpen.
