We only have 9 games today, but it look like a solid slate none the less. Near the top we get Jacob deGrom, coming off of back to back awful performances. He face the Cubs at home, so it’s not like the matchup is great, but I still like this spot. His K rate is elite for this slate, and although the Cubs lineup is stacked, they haven’t been great this season. I think he will be popular, but I’m willing to take a chance here with deGrom.
Mike Foltynewicz face the Nationals in Washington. This is a GPP PLAY ONLY, cause Folty may have found something in his game. He has a 19% swinging strike rate on his change up to lefties, so if he has figured out to throw it more, he could be in for another good outing. He is very good vs, righties, so Mike is interesting. This could easily blow up in my face, but on a smaller slate, he’s worth some tourney exposure.
John Lackey takes on the Mets, and he has been getting hit hard. He hasn’t been getting blow up, so I’m not in love with the stack but the one offs are here. Asdrubal Cabrera is solid, filling up a shortstop and getting a good matchup. Granderson is only $3,700 on DraftKings and I also like Jay Bruce. The stack is fine, but I’m more targeting these guys as one offs.
Yovani Gallerdo has been struggling to right handed bats. The Twins have Dozier and Sano in great spots. Kepler and Grossman are also fine plays, as Gallerdo doesn’t miss many bats. The low owned “bonus stack” today is the White Sox. Miley gets crushed by right handed bats. Frazier, Abreu, Davidson, Avisail crush righties, so this could be a great chance to get a low owned stack with good upside.
