It’s a wide open night pitching-wise. Dig in and get an advantage over the people blindly clicking Chad Morton. As always, rankings out of 100 based on price and potential output.
Felix Hernandez v BOS: (95) King Felix is rounding back into his old form since coming off the DL. Checkout his signature change up @PitchingNinja’s page. Nasty as ever. The Sox have an atrocious 73 wRC+ vs RHP the last 30 days.
Madison Bumgarner v PIT: (95) Since his return MadBum has been hittable. He’s issued an uncharacteristic number of walks, as well. He’s under 10K on DraftKings for the first time in a very long time. I’ll take the opportunity to get a horse like him against a below average offense (.304 wOBA vs RHP last 30 days) at that price any time.
Jacob Faria v BAL: (90) The other shoe finally fell for Faria last start. That bumped down his price a bit, which helps. The Oriole’s have some firepower despite their struggles this season. Those things may keep his ownership in check.
Michael Fulmer v KC: (90) Fulmer has been a model of consistancy all season, so it was surprising the Royals did so much early damage against him in his last start. KC has improved, but I still have major doubts about their offense. Give me Big Mike at home.
Jon Gray @ STL: (90) It’s a gamble betting on Gray but there’s only a few guys with double digit strikeout potential tonight. The risk is a double digit negative, so this is a Ricky Bobby move.
Charlie Morton @ PHI: (85) I’m not really interested in Morton tonight. He’s going to be chalky, doesn’t really go deep into games, and is far from bulletproof. The Phillies strikeout a bunch, though so he has floor.
Kenta Maeda v MIN: (85) Maeda is good for 5 innings, 5ish Ks, and limited earned runs like most of the Dodgers staff. That’s fine for cash lineups.
Sonny Gray @ TOR: (80) Most of Gray’s recent success has come at home in the spacious Colosseum. The Roger’s Center is a much different place. Not one that is kind to a pitcher with a .470 road SLG%. I’ve got a bad feeling about Sonny in this spot.
Jordan Montgomery v CIN: (80) The Reds aren’t great on the road. Monty has scuffled lately, but this is a get healthy start. The main draw here is the sub $6K price.
Luis Castillo @ NYY: (80) It’s a dart throw against the Yankees, so proceed with caution, but he’s flashed talent all year with a 13.3 SwStr%. The Yankees have cooled off as well.
