Three  Pitchers to Consider

1. Clayton Kershaw, $10,200 (DK) @ Cincinnati – Kershaw will be making his third start since coming off the IL and should be back closer to a normal workload. On a short slate with not many pitching options, I like him to put up a nice game here against a Cincinnati lineup that has struggled a lot recently.

2. Jose Quintana, $7,600 (DK) vs Chicago – If you are looking for a mid-tier option today I think Quintana is the guy. The veteran right-hander should be able to give us a strong effort against the Cubs on a slate where we are lacking many options outside of Kershaw.

3. Braxton Garrett, $5,400 (DK) vs Colorado – Similar to Devin Smeltzer above, I will be looking to just survive with Braxton here against a Rockies team that I don’t mind targeting against outside of Coors Field. Outside of playing Kershaw up top I will be looking to save with my SP2 today.

Three Stacks to Consider

1. Los Angeles Dodgers vs Hunter Greene (R) – The Dodgers line up very well today vs Hunter Greene in a day game at Great American Ball Park. Greene has been good at times this year for the Reds but has given up 17 home runs already this year. Freddie Freeman will be one of my favorite plays on the board.

2. Atlanta Braves vs Alex Wood (L) – The Braves always line up well facing a lefty with all the right-handed hitting power in their lineup. Austin Riley got the day off yesterday and should return to the lineup today. Alex Wood is a decent real-life pitcher but I’ll side with the Braves offense here on a warm afternoon in Atlanta. 

3. Minnesota Twins vs Zach Plesac (R) – Byron Buxton should return to the Twins lineup today after getting the day off yesterday. I mainly like the top part of this lineup in Arraez, Buxton, Correa, Kepler and Sanchez. If you want to go to the bottom of the order that could provide you with some salary relief.
