Three Pitchers to Consider

1. Shane McClanahan, $9,700 (DK) – McClanahan has had a strong start to the season providing us with big time strikeout upside. Last time out he recorded a career-high 11 strikeouts against Minnesota. He draws a nice matchup here against Seattle in a ballpark where runs are hard to come by. Sign me up !!!

2. Robbie Ray, $8,800 (DK) – The reigning AL Cy Young award winner comes into this game with a 2-2 record but has yet put up that monster DFS game this year. Tonight he gets a nice matchup at home against Tampa Bay at a discounted price. I look for this game to be a low scoring pitchers duel in T-Mobile Park.

3. Aaron Nola, $8,000 (DK) – Nola has pitched well over his last three starts but the Phillies offense hasn’t given him much run support. He has compiled 22 strikeouts with only two walks over that stretch. This is the cheapest price tag we have seen this year and I like pairing him with McClanahan or Ray tonight.

Three Stacks to Consider

 
1. Philadelphia Phillies – I look for the Phillies bats to come alive tonight against Taijuan Walker. They will be seeing him for the second time this week. Without many good hitting spots on this slate I like attacking Walker here with the power bats from the Phillies.
 
2. Houston Astros – This should be one of the “better” hitting spots on the slate. Tarik Skubal is a decent real-life pitcher but he draws a tougher matchup here on the road in Minute Maid Park.
 
3. Minnesota Twins – Camden Yards hasn’t been great for scoring runs early in the season but Spenser Watkins is one of the worst starters on the slate. I expect Byron Buxton to return to the lineup for the Twins after getting an off day on Wednesday.
