Three  Pitchers to Consider

1. Gerrit Cole, $10,400 (DK) @ Minnesota – I could make the argument that Cole should be over $11,000 on this small slate. He is coming off his best outing of the year beating the Tigers in Yankees Stadium. He went 7 innings striking out nine and putting up 36.6 DK points. Sign me up!!!

2. Max Fried,  $9,500 (DK) vs Pittsburgh – Fried is coming off a solid outing in Coors Field where he went 8 innings giving up only 2 hits and no runs. Tonight he looks to continue his strong start to the season against a terrible Pirates offense.

3. Konnor Pilkington, $7,100 (DK) vs Oakland – Way too cheap in this matchup at home against Oakland. He is coming off his best start last time out when he beat Kansas City 4-0, going five innings no runs and striking out a season-high 8 batters.

Three Stacks to Consider

1. Atlanta Braves vs JT Brubaker (R) – Brubaker is coming off a rough home start against Arizona where he gave up 8 hits and 6 runs including 3 home runs in only 4 innings of work. Now he has to go on the road to Atlanta where it will be hot and face this powerful Braves lineup. Good luck JT!

2. New York Yankees vs Dylan Bundy (R) – The Yankees have been on fire recently and now get to face a struggling Dylan Bundy in Target Field. Bundy has given up 17 hits and 9 earned runs in his last two starts. The Yankees are back to full strength with the return of Giancarlo Stanton. Should be a long (or short) night for Mr. Bundy.

3. Cleveland Indians vs James Kaprielian (L) – I haven’t been able to target this Cleveland offense much this year but on a short slate they draw a nice home matchup here vs Oakland. Jose Ramirez will be one of my favorite plays on the board tonight.
