The Cycle 7/20

The Staff 

Castillo – He’s qualified for a QS in 6 of his last 7 starts, with one of those games coming against this St. Louis team. He still tends to walk too many batters, sometimes over throwing but does have the ability to strikeout double digits. Out of all the top arms, I do like Castillo’s Upside the most.

Kershaw – He has looked great in his last 2 starts striking out 16, while only allowing 2 runs. He’s been dominant at home, going for over 40 fantasy points on FanDuel in 4 straight home games. Miami can be pesky, but that can also strikeout in handfuls.

Mikolas – I’m not too thrilled about Mikolas tonight, but with a lack of cheap arms we’re going to ride his CG shutout. He doesn’t have the strikeout stuff he had last year, but on a slate where there’s some high price bats that we want all we can ask for is 30 points and we’re happy.


The Bats 

Minnesota – Anderson has been decent this year, but there’s no way in hell i’m trusting a lefty in Minnesota tonight. This team destroys lefties from top to bottom

Cleveland – Junis was unbelievable last start, but it’s a Saturday night in Cleveland. Lefties are going to rake.

Houston – Jurado has given up 13 runs in his last 12 innings. He’s been beat up by righties giving up a .312 average and 7 bombs. Easy spot for Springer, Bregman, Yuli and Altuve.
