Today’s main slate features 11 games, where Michael Pineda ($10,100) gets the ball facing the awful Kansas City Royals. At least 6K’s in all of his starts this season for Pineda who faces an improving Royals team (not like could get any worse), but they still aren’t good enough. Pineda gets a good ballpark shift, a chance to rack up some K’s in Kauffman Stadium, and a solid offense around to him to get a win today.
Matt Shoemaker ($8,800) has been pretty solid this season, and gets a great matchup vs. the White Sox. I will continue to roster right handed pitchers vs. the White Sox until the can prove to be competent at the plate. If you want to save $600 from Shoemaker, Matt Garza ($8,200) faces San Diego in Petco Park. Garza is a GPP play only, because he is not really this good, but maybe he sneaks another solid start in. Also the Padres do strike out the 3rd most in the MLB.
The Baltimore Orioles face Michael Fulmer in Detroit. Fulmer is a pretty good pitcher, but he does struggle vs. right handed bats. .342 wOBA to righties, and these O’s have a lot of them. Machado, Jones, Trumbo are my favorite targets in this one. This stack should run very low owned, and I like taking a shot in large field tournaments.
If the wind is blowing out in Wrigley you can stack there, but I like the Angels in this spot, vs. Miguel Gonzalez. Miguel has a .346 wOBA vs. Lefties and a .324 vs. righties, so both sides of the plate are fine. Trout, Calhoun and Valbuena make for a nice 3 man stack. Trout has been white hot of late, and I expect it to continue tonight.
