3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Kevin Gausman – 10.6DK – Likely comes in 3rd or 4th in ownership this evening which is a good thing! Tougher matchup here against the Orioles, but I still like him alot here. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 3.46 xFIP, 29% k rate and a 6% walk rate.
  2. Reid Detmers – 7.6DK – Nice home matchup against floundering Reds. over the last month they are in the bottom 10 in Ks versus lefties and have been a bottom 10 offense. Detmers is projecting to be the chalk of the slate.
  3. MacKenzie Gore – 7.4DK –  Gore is my favorite pitcher on the entire slate. As I have said for a while now, this Yankees team is straight poo poo and will be for a LOOOONG time. I will continue to target them with pitching through the end of the season. They have lost 9 in a row now.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – Outside of Rosario and Ozuna, the Braves let us all down last night. I think they come back with a vengeance here tonight against Quintana. They have been the BEST team in MLB versus lefties this season. Keep riding this Marcell Ozuna train!! It’s been fun!!
  2. Washington Nationals –  I have also been targeting Severino in every start and wont stop tonight with the Nationals. Severino has allowed over a 270 ISO and 412 WOBA over the last month to BOTH sides of the plate. 
  3. Los Angeles Dodgers – They started out hot last night, but disappointed in the end and got hammered by the Guardians.  Going right back to the well here against Curry. He is allowing massive HC to both sides of the plate. Mookie and Freddie continue to be the best LAD plays.
