2. Casual Weather
WAS at ATL- 20% chance of rain at game time, but it doesn’t sound like this one is too risky.

TOR at BAL- 10% chance of rain at game time, but the risk grows as the game goes. Sounds like the worst of it will be after the game, but keep monitoring this as first pitch approaches.


3. Favorite Stacks
Phillies vs Zach Godley- It’s been a long time since Godley was any good.

Blue Jays vs Wade LeBlanc– The lefty has been up and down, but not lasted more than 3.1 innings in his last two starts.

Indians vs JT Brubaker- Brubaker won’t go deep and then the Indians get to tee off against a pen that is missing a lot of pieces.

Twins vs Corbin Burnes– Burnes can strike out a lot of guys, but he also has struggled as a starter.


4. Favorite Hitting Plays
Catcher (Expensive): JT Realmuto at BOS
Catcher (Punt/Value): Austin Barnes or Keibert Ruiz vs SEA. Both are priced pretty cheap and have a nice matchup at home versus Marco Gonzales. Also consider Sandy Leon, Tucker Barnhart, and Victor Caratini.

1B (Expensive): Luke Voit vs TB.
1B (Punt/Value): Matt Davidson at KC. Don’t even know what is going to happen with the Reds game tomorrow, but Davidson is only $2,400 and hit fourth and fifth over his last few games. Also Consider Edwin Encarnacion, Miguel Cabrera, and Michael Chavis.

2B (Expensive): Brandon Lowe at NYY
2B (Punt/Value): Luis Garcia vs ATL. Garcia hit his first MLB home run and is one of the Nationals’ top prospects. He is only $2,300 on DK. Also consider Scott Kingery and Thairo Estrada.

3B (Expensive): Justin Turner vs SEA
3B (Punt/Value): Alec Bohm vs BOS. Bohm has a nice matchup and is only $3k. Also consider Carter Kieboom, Willi Castro, Andres Gimenez, and Rio Ruiz.

SS (Expensive): Francisco Lindor at PIT
SS (Punt/Value): Isaac Parades at CHW. Parades is one of the top Tigers prospects and he is a bit overshadowed by the call ups of Skubal and Mize. Also consider Andres Gimenez, Chris Taylor, Willi Castro, and Willy Adames.

OF (Expensive): Mookie Betts, Nelson Cruz, Bryce Harper, Austin Meadows, Nick Castellanos
OF (Punt/Value): Kevin Keirmaier, Yoshi Tsutsugo, Victor Robles, Shogo Akiyama, Ian Happ, Scott Kingery, Chris Taylor, Hunter Renfroe, Victor Reyes, Byron Buxton Randall Grichuk,


5. Favorite Pitching Plays
Cash Games: Yu Darvish, Carlos Carrasco, Kenta Maeda, Luis Castillo

Tournament: Carlos Carrasco, Kenta Maeda, Luis Castillo, Tony Gonsolin, Dylan Cease, David Peterson, Nate Peason

Contrarian Plays: Zach Eflin, Brad Keller, Corbin Burnes
