3 Pitchers to consider on this slate: 

  1. Shohei Ohtani – 11.3DK – Nice home matchup against the bad Giants offense. They have struck out the 8th most vs righties over the last month and been a bottom 10 offense. Ohtani has a 3.48 xFIP, 29% k rate and a 8% walk rate over the last month.
  2. Kevin Gausman – 10.8DK – I will be playing pitchers against the Guardians moving forward. Their offense has been awful over the last month. Gausman has a 3.27 xFIP, 33% k rate and a 7% walk rate.
  3. Max Fried – 9.4DK –  Max looked like he didnt miss a beat in his return last start posting 6 shutout innings and 8 strikeouts and 32 DK points. I have been playing lefties against this Pirates team all season and I wont stop here tonight.

3 Stacks to consider on this slate:

  1. Atlanta Braves – Another slate to play the Braves!! Acuna left the game yesterday as he got hit with a 97mph Fastball to the elbow. Xrays were negative, but he could still sit out here. Otherwise, I like the lineup here tonight.
  2. Boston Red Sox –  Happy Jordan Lyles day!!! He has been awful this season and this Red Sox team has been hitting. Specifically like the lefties here but also like Duval a bit.
  3. Baltimore Orioles – I have been targeting Javier with lefties all season. They are the priorities here but dont leave out mountcastle as he has been on fire!
