5 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Carlos Rodon – 10.0K – HIs projection is really standing out today versus the Rockies at home. He has a 14% swinging strike rate on the season.
  2. Julio Urias – 8.2DK – Facing a Pirates team that I’m never afraid to attack. Hasnt eclipsed 81 pitches yet this season but has been very efficient coming off b2b quality starts.
  3. Brandon Woodruff – 9.3DK  – Cincinatti is AWFUL. They have the 2nd highest k rate in the league versus RHP. He has a 14% swinging strike rate this season. Too cheap here.
  4. Paul Blackburn – 7.5K – I will continue to pick on the K happy Tigers. They have a 25% k rate, 087 ISO and miniscule 72 WRC+ versus RHP this season. Surprisingly, Blackburn has a 12% swinging strike rate.
  5. Michael Pineda – 6.2K – Strictly a matchup and price play here versus the AWFUL athletics. The A’s lead the league in K rate versus RHP and have the lowest WRC+.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. San Diego Padres – Facing Kyle Hendricks. I shouldnt have to say more here. Manny and Hosmer are on absolute FIRE.
  2. Los Angeles Dodgers – They own the highest implied total on the slate at 4.7. The Pirates have a bottom 5 bullpen as well.
  3. Miami Marlins – The best hitting conditions on the slate with the Roof scheduled to be open. Will be 89 Degrees. Arizona also has the worst pen in the bigs.
  4. Arizona Diamondbacks – Absolutely LOVE this game for offense. Hernandez for Miami has a HUGE lefty problem. 423 WOBA allowed and a massive 3.21 HR/9.
  5. MIlwaukee Brewers –  Luis Castillo making his first start of the season here. Milwaukee has the 2nd highest ISO versus RHP this season.
