    Five Pitchers to Consider

  1. Shohei Ohtani, $10,900 (DK) vs Houston Astros – Ohtani is coming off a sub par outing against San Diego where he gave up 5 earned runs over 5 innings. He has been dealing with an injury to his finger but all indications are he is good to go here in a home matchup against Houston. The Astros continue to be without Yordan Alvarez and Jose Altuve making this matchup even better.
  2. Tyler Glasnow, $10,300 (DK) @ KC Royals – Glasnow will draw one of the best matchups on the slate tonight in Kansas City. The Royals offense has been one to target against for the last several weeks and tonight will be no different. In his last 3 starts prior to the All-Star break, Glasnow was 0-2 but pitched well with a 2.76 ERA and striking out 31 in just 16 1/3 innings of work.
  3. Luis Castillo, $8,900 (DK) vs Detroit Tigers – Great matchup here for Castillo at home at T-Mobile Park against Detroit. He has been much better at home this season where he is 5-2 with a 2.44 ERA thus far. At this cheap price tag and given the matchup he should be one of the more popular pitchers on the slate.
  4. Kenta Maeda, $7,700 (DK) @ Oakland A’s – We were on Maeda in his last start against Kansas City and he did not disappoint. The veteran right-hander went 7 innings allowing just one earned run with 9 strikeouts while putting up 33.4 fantasy points. He draws another tasty matchup here in Oakland with a nice $7,700 price tag.
  5. Dean Kremer, $7,100 (DK) vs Miami Marlins – Kremer is coming off his best outing of the year when he beat the Yankees in Yankees Stadium. He went 7 innings allowing just one earned run while striking out a season-high 10 batters. He is way too cheap here in a nice home matchup against Miami.

    Five Stacks to Consider

  1. Atlanta Braves vs Michael Kopech (R) – Atlanta will be a popular stack tonight in a great home matchup against the White Sox and Michael Kopech. The Braves offense is loaded and had 169 homers in the first half of the season, 20 homers ahead of the next best team (LA Dodgers). Sign me up here!
  2. New York Yankees vs Austin Gomber (L) – The Yankees offense and overall play in the first half of the year was a big disappointment. That being said they open up the second half here in a great spot to get “right” in Coors Field against Austin Gomber and the Rockies bullpen. Outside of Stanton & Torres they are affordable especially at the bottom of the lineup. They will have a team total close to 7 by first pitch.
  3. Tampa Bay Rays @ Alec Marsh (R) – The Rays offense struggled the last few weeks prior to the All-Star break but should get right here in Kansas City against Alec Marsh. They are expensive at the top with Lowe, Franco and Arozarena but do have some values pieces at the bottom for a wrap-a-round stack.
  4. Texas Rangers vs Aaron Civale (R) – Civale is coming off his best start of the year against Kansas City but now has to go into Globe Life Field to take on the tough Rangers offense. I think we get Texas here at much lower ownership with the other good spots on the board tonight.
  5. Toronto Blue Jays vs Ryne Nelson – Another offense that may go overlooked tonight are the Toronto Blue Jays. Ryne Nelson was shelled last time out against the Mets lasting just 3 innings allowing 9 hits and 7 earned runs. I think this Blue Jays offense has a big 2nd half of the season and will be led by newly crowned Home Run Derby Champion Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
