3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Max Scherzer – 11.0DK – Great matchup for Max here against the Angels who have struck out the MOST in the league vs righties over the last 2 weeks. He has a 4 xFIP, 29% k rate and a 9% walk rate. Will def be a chalky option tonight.
  2. Tyler Glasnow – 10.8DK – Will likely come in under owned on this slate. Over the last 6 weeks, he has an incredible 2.56 xFIP, massive 33% k rate and only a 5% walk rate. I prefer him straight up to Scherzer at lower ownership. The Giants are in the top 10 of strikeouts to righties and have been a bottom 10 offense. LOVE him tonight.
  3. Brady Singer – 7.9DK –  I like what I have seen from Brady over the last month. He has the third lowest xFIP on the slate at 3.48 along with a 22% k rate and only a 4% walk rate. This Seattle team has struck out more than any team in the Majors this season.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – Another slate to play the Braves!! The Braves absolutely SMASHED the Mets over the weekend scoring 36 runs in 4 games. Tonight, the get Clarke Schmidt. He struggles with lefties in particular, so they are def the priorities here. Ozzie left the game last night due to precautionary hammy tightness. If he is out of the lineup tonight, look for Nicky Lopez to take his spot.
  2. Arizona Diamondbacks –  Happy Chris Flexen in Coors day!!! Hard not to get overweight here on the Diamondbacks and just get all the combos possible. Flexen has been atrocious to both sides of the plate, so everyone is in play here. The top 5 in the order are def the priorities but also the highest owned. Mix in the bottom of the order guys to differentiate. 
  3. St. Louis Cardinals – JP Sears has been giving up some helacious hard contact to both sides of the plate. Absolutely LOVE the top 7 in this lineup tonight. They will get the awful Athletics pen also when Sears gets the boot.
