7 game slate with potential weather issues and limited pitching options.
Pitching is somewhat limited with the weather and price points along with some that are just openers.
*Potential weather issues in Baltimore, Philadelphia and Minnesota(keep an eye on these prior to lock).
Verlander has been dominate this year. Double digit strike outs in 8 of his last 10 games and 2 of those were against the As. Pitching is rough tonight and can play Verlander with some Rays bats.
Cheap option with a solid matchup vs a Mariners team that stokes out at a 27% clip vs RHP.
Definitely a risky play vs the Red Sox, but as of late they have not shown up much at all. Betts has hit the ball well but over all the team is hitting .195 with a 25K rate vs RHP(14 day time-frame). Buchholz started his career with the Sox so maybe a little revenge is in play. Potential for 5 innings 1-2 ERs and 5 Ks. Willing to take a risk on a smaller slate with limited options. Especially in a 2nd lineup.
Houston Astros vs Homer Bailey
Bailey has been good as of late, but is in a rough spot tonight vs the Astros who already beat him up earlier this year. They also matchup up well vs his pitch type. Springer, Altuve, Bregman and Alvarez all hit the splitter well.
*Springer, Altuve, Bregman, Diaz and Maldonado or Chirinos.
Phillies/Braves game- Potential weather issues(Keep and eye on game prior to lock).
Can see this as a high scoring game. Braves hit well vs LHP.
*Braves vs Smyly- Acuna, Albies, Freeman, Donaldson, Duvall(value).
*Phillies vs Teheran- Dickerson, Harper, Hoskins, Realmuto, Miller(value).
Solid value with some of these plays.
Value- TB Rays
Nice Park shift for the Rays. Gracia is leading off with Meadows and Pham 2/3. All 3 are in good spots vs a LHP. Meadows sneaky with LvL. Bottom of order in play as well Aguilar, Duffy, Robertson & Zunino all very cheap. Best weather on the slate and Rays for well with Verlander.
Jackie Bradley Jr.- matches up well vs Buchholz.
