10 game slate tonight and listed below are my favorite options at Pitcher. Also a few of my favorite teams to target along with some of my favorite hitters. A few value bats to add in as well.
Giolito has pitched well vs the Royals this year posting 33 and 40 DK points in the last 2 games he faced them. Favorite option to pay up for tonight.
Musgrove pitched well against the team in the past limiting them to a .222 average over 55 plate appearances. The Cardinals have been cold as of late vs RHP with a .226 average and 24% K rate (Last 30 days). He is a cheap option that should go 5 innings with a few runs and 5-6 Ks.
Porcello has handled most of the Blue Jays bats. Tellez has given him the most trouble, Gurriell and Smoak are the other 2 that he has had trouble with. I think he pitches well enough tonight to pay off his reduced price. The Red Sox need Porcello to step it up the second half. He has the talent to do so. I can see him go 6 innings with 2-3 runs and 7 Ks.
The Dodgers get an excellent matchup tonight vs Eflin who has allowed a .374 wOBA, .290 ISO and 45% fly ball rate to LHHs. Eflin throws the slider at a 28% clip and the Dodgers crush this pitch- Pederson, Bellinger, Seager, Muncy and Barnes al hit this pitch with over a .200 ISO. These 5 would be my favorites.
Angels get another good good matchup tonight vs the duo of James and Valdez. They should see Hakes for an inning or two then get Valdez who has allowed 15 ERs over his last 8.1 innings.
*Trout, Upton, Fletcher, Calhoun
* With Coors on the slate the Dodgers and Angels should come in with lower ownership.
Good spot for both teams with bad pitching on both sides.
SF- Belt, Dickerson, Vogt, Longoria in order of preference.
Col- Blackmon, Story, Arenado
Luplow has crushed LHP this year with a .468 wOBA, .383 ISO and 44% HC. Norris relies on the slider at 30% rate and Luplow has shown to crush this pitch with over a .300 ISO.
Chuck Nasty has been an elite play at home this year rocking a .446 average, .473 iso and .566 wOBA. He gets to face a mediocre pitcher at home tonight. Lock him in.
Rizzo has hits in 6 straight games with 4 of those multi hit games. Prize is down and there is a good amount of wind blowing out in Wrigley tonight. Going with the hot bat of Rizzo and the wind.
Scooooootah Gennett- price is way down. Matches up well vs his pitch type. Nice 15 mph wind blowing out. Scoootah bomb!
Cavan Biggio- HR tonight in Fenway
Bobby Bradley- Norris struggles with lefties. Bradley hits LHP well.
