5 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Corbin Burnes – 10.1DK – Burnes has the 2nd highest k rate on the slate and the lowest SIERRA. Padres are middle of the pack in strikeouts vs righties but are bottom 3 in ISO and wRC+ over the last 3 weeks.
  2. Sonny Gray – 6.8DK – Will be popular here as he is way too cheap in this matchup against the Tigers. He has a 29% k rate and a 3.37 SIERRA.
  3. Zac Gallen – 9.3DK  – DK only here as he is the highest priced pitcher on FD. Has been fantastic this season and has a 26% k rate and a 3.14 SIERRA.
  4. Kevin Gausman – 9.5K – Coming off a stinker versus the Mariners. Love him to bounce back here. He has a 29% k rate and a 2.46 SIERRA on the season.
  5. NIck Pivetta – 7.8K – Coming off a CG versus the Astros where he put up 39 DK points. Like the matchup here.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Los Angeles Dodgers – Just like last night, they have the highest implied total on the slate facing Josiah Gray. They put up 10 last night, can they do it again here? Gray has the highest barrell % allowed on the slate.
  2. Minnesota Twins – We got a Kepler salami last night and now they get to face Beau Brieske. He has the 3rd highest xSLG of any pitcher on the slate tonight.
  3. Houston Astros – Another day where I get to stack the Astros!! Top 2 offense versus right-handed pitching.
  4. Arizona Diamondbacks – The Snakes have been a top 6 offense versus righties over the past 3 weeks. Facing Jonathan Heasley tonight who has the highest xERA on the slate.
  5. New York Yankees –  My boy Bruce has been getting hit HARD. Judge is on another level right now.
