5 pitchers to consider on this slate:

  1. Sean Manaea – 9.0DK – He is leading the way in projections this am by 3 points. He gets a clean matchup here versus the dbacks at home. I like the price quite a bit here. He has a 26% strikeout rate and a 3.7 SIERA on the season.
  2. Dylan Cease – 9.8DK – Very tough matchup here for Cease. However, he has the 2nd highest strikeout rate on the slate at 33% and has a 3.29 SIERA on the season.
  3. Spencer Strider – 8.6DK  – His price keeps climbing but for good reason. He has the highest strikeout rate on the slate at a massive 38.6% as well as a slate low 2.62 SIERA. The Giants have struck out the 7th most versus RHP since 6/1.
  4. Roansy Contreras – 7.4DK – Coming off a dud performance against the Cardinals, but, I love the spot for him here at home against the cubs. He has a 25% strikeout rate along with a 3.67 SIERA.
  5. Rich Hill – 7.2DK – Good ol DICK MOUNTAIN. He gets the Tigers matchup here. He is never a thrilling roster, but the spot cant get much better for him here.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. New York Yankees – Very hard to ignore the Yankees on tonights slate, even in the Cavern that is tropicana field. Josh Fleming is allowing a slate high 91.6 AVG EV. That doesnt bode well facing the likes of Rizzo, Judge, Stanton and Torres.
  2. New York Mets – I have been targeting Urquidy all season and wont stop tonight. He is allowing the 2nd highest AVG EV on the slate, third highest barrell %, and has the highest expected ERA.
  3. Minnesota Twins – ALL ABOARD the Twinkies train today!! Civale is making his return from the IL and is a FB pitcher with the wind blowing out at a high rate. Sign me up here.
  4. Atlanta Braves – They have the 2nd highest implied run total as of this writing facing off versus Desclafini coming off the 60 day IL. He only threw 2.2 innings in his last rehab start so I expect him to only go 3-4 innings here.
  5. Pittsburgh Pirates – I cannot ignore this spot for the Pirates versus Swarmer. He leads the slate with a massive 15% barrell % allowed and has a 5.71 expected ERA. Oneill Cruz went ham yesterday and is still dirt cheap.
