5 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Gerrit Cole – 10.5DK – He has a massive projection compared to the rest of the field today. Gets the Orioles at home.
  2. Zack Wheeler – 9.9DK – 26% k rate on the season and a 3.25 SIERRA. Facing a Braves team that has the highest strikeout rate in the league over the past few weeks.
  3. Marco Gonzales – 5.3DK  – Dirt cheap and gets Oakland at home here. he can go 100 pitches. We are looking for 15 DK here.
  4. Alex Cobb – 7.9K – Like the price here. He has the 2nd highest k rate on the slate at 28% and the lowest SIERRA at 2.55.
  5. Chris Archer – 7.4K – Def prefer Gonzales and Cobb here, but he is in the mix for MME facing the Tigers.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Los Angeles Dodgers – Massive 5.5 implied total here which is the highest on the slate. Joan Adon has a massive 6.45 xERA and 14% barrell rate allowed.
  2. Houston Astros – Facing Tristan McKenzie here who has allowed the highest EV on the slate at 92.3 MPH. Houston is first in ISO and wRC+ vs righties the last few weeks.
  3. Minnesota Twins – Massive total here facing off versus Beau Brieske.
  4. New York Yankees – Another massive total here facing off Jordan Lyles who just put up 24 DK against this team in Camden. They are in Yankee Stadium here. He gets tagged tonight.
  5. Philadelphia Phillies –  1st in ISO and 5th in wRC+ vs lefties over the past few weeks. Davidson has a 11% k rate versus righties in his short career.
