5 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Framber Valdez – 11DK – Will likely come in lower owned on this slate even after throwing a No hitter in his last start. It IS a tougher matchup in Baltimore against the Orioles here though. Ill prolly fade at this price though.
  2. Max Scherzer – 10.8DK – Will be the mega chalk of the slate in Oakland against the Athletics. Over the last 5 weeks, he has a 4.14 xFIP, 30% k rate and a 9% walk rate.
  3. Yusei Kikuchi – 8.2DK –  This Cleveland offense is just plain awful. No other words can describe it. Over the last month they have been a bottom 3 offense in the league. Kikuchi has a 3.65 xFIP, 24% k rate and a 6% walk rate. Love him here.
  4. Brady Singer – 7.4DK – Brady has been awesome over the last month for the price. He has a 3.23 xFIP, 23% k rate and a 3% walk rate. He has posted 3 straight 22+ DK point performances.
  5. Wade Miley – 7.0DK – The Rockies are just terrible. Over the last month, they have struck out the MOST in the league vs righties and been a bottom 10 offense. Miley has a 3.60 xFIP, 26% k rate and a 11% walk rate.

5 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – Going right back to the Bravos tonight after their embarrassing loss last night. Mitch Keller has been atrocious vs lefties over the last 30 days allowing a MASSIVE 452 ISO and 533 WOBA. So Olson, Albies, Rosario and Harris are the priorities here.
  2. Chicago Cubs –  They get Carrasco here in NY. He has been AWFUL to both sides of the plate as he is allowing over a 209 ISO and 485 WOBA over the last month. Love the whole lineup here but Bellinger is def the best piece.
  3. New York Yankees – I am a little apprehensive here as Cease walked 7 dudes last night and the Yanks couldn’t score. Ill still play them here though vs Toussaint. Bauers, Judge, Torres and Stanton are the priorities. 
  4. Los Angeles Dodgers – This is a awful spot for Pfaadt. He has been MUCH better on the road this season as he has over a 5xFIP at home. Mookie, Freddy and Muncy are the priorities.
  5. Texas Rangers – Love the Rangers tonight, even in Oakland. Corey Seager is my favortie bat on the entire slate as he has a massive 269 ISO and 417 WOBA versus lefties this season in a LvL matchup. Sears has actually been kind of reverse splits this season allowing a 389 WOBA to lefties.
