Pitching on today’s 14 game slate is tough. Our SP1 today is Corey Kluber. Kluber has been lights out in 3 of his last 4 starts, and now gets a weak White Sox team. He provides elite upside on this slate with few good pitching options. The White Sox like to strikeout, so double digit K’s could be in play. Kluber for cash and GPPs.
The SP2 today is very tough. Shoemaker owns the Astros, so I don’t mind that spot, but Montgomery faces a Baltimore team, potentiality without Machado. Jordan Montgomery has had decent K rate to righties, where most of the O’s bats hit from. He has been very good to both sides of the plate, and has limited contact to both sides of the plate. GPPs only.
The Mets face off in Atlanta vs. Julio Teheran. Teheran struggles vs. lefties, giving up a .391 wOBA to lefties and .533 slugging. This park already plays small to left handed bats, and all the good Mets batters are left handed. Conforto, Cabrera, Bruce, Walker and Duda are all in an excellent spot. This might be the worst team for Teheran, and they are priced reasonably. It’s hot in Atlanta, and the ball flies when it is hot.
The Boston Red Sox have a fantastic spot vs. Jordan Zimmermann. Every single advanced stat for Jordan Zimmermann is awful. He struggles to both sides of the plate, with zero swing and miss stuff. Giving up over 2 HRs/9 to both sides of the plate, this is a spot to win a GPP. Betts in $4,300 on DK for some reason. The rest of the stack should be, Moreland, Bogarts and Benintendi.
