Today’s pitching options are few and far between. At the to Chris Sale is my man today. He has been the pitcher in the MLB this season and K’s too many hitters to pass up. Yes he is very expensive so a fade in tournaments is always in play, but I have a value guy that could allow you to get Sale comfortably. If you’re nuts you could play Mr. boom or bust himself Francisco Liriano, but I’m not that nuts. Brandon McCarthy and Francis Martes are the two value guys I’m looking to today. I prefer Martes, with a better matchup, big ballpark and strikeout upside. We don’t know a lot about him, but he is a good option to save salary. McCarthy might be the safer play, because few people hit him hard. The macthup isn’t the best, but the Mets are banged up and could roll out a pretty bad lineup.
Seattle Mariners – They burned me today, but that won’t stop me from playing them today. Jordan Zimmermann isn’t good anymore. He can’t throw the ball past people, and his pitches get hit hard. Everyone is in play.
Clevland Indians – Chris Tilman has not pitched well this season. A .452 wOBA to lefties, which won’t help him at all with the Indians switch hitters. They have been fairly hot, and I expect it to continue. I prefer the lefties.
New York Yankees – They are at home vs. a pitcher that is relatively unknown. What we do know is that he does struggle to righties. It is a small sample size but the Yankees have right handed mashers that can tear Bridwell up.
