3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Luis Castillo – 10.3DK – Awesome matchup in Chicago for Castillo here. We have been attacking the White Sox for the last 2 months and will continue to here. Over the last 5 weeks, Castillo has a 3.64 xFIP, 29% k rate and a 6% walk rate.
  2. Allan Winans – 7.5DK – Just absolutely owned this Mets team in his last start. Finished with 33.6 DK points and 9 Ks. He also had a 12.6% swinging strike rate.
  3. Drew Rom – 4.0DK –  Fully stretched prospect who was acquired from the Orioles in the Flaherty trade. He has 118 strikeouts in 97 innings in the minors this season, so he has immense upside in this matchup against the Pirates.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – Massive 6 team total for the Braves here at home against Peterson and the horrible Mets bullpen. The whole lineup is in play tonight. I am expecting Vaughn Grissom to get the start at 2nd over Nicky Lopez tonight with the lefty on the mound for the Mets. I know a small sample but Matt Olson is 3/13 with 3 bombs off Peterson lefty vs lefty, and he will be lower owned here.
  2. Texas Rangers –  Why not just play the best 2 offenses in MLB here. The Rangers get rookie Slade Cecconi here who has been giving up MASSIVE HC and Barrells. He has the highest avg EV of 92.5 MPH on the slate over the last month along with a massive 13% barrell rate. Love the whole team here.
  3. Cincinnati Reds– Reds get a matchup against apparent new gas can Lucas Giolito. Over the last month, he has allowed over a 227 ISO and 372 WOBA to BOTH sides of the plate. Again, love this lineup top to bottom, so get all the combos of the 5 man here.
