Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Trevor Bauer ($10,900 DK, $11,400 FD): Bauer is one of the most obvious, slam-dunk plays of the year so far matching up against our favorite, flow-chart supported team in the Miami Marlins. In case more persuasion was needed, the Marlins have accrued a league-worst .272 wOBA, 70 wRC+, and a .110 ISO. Yikes.

Blake Snell ($10,500 DK, $11,200 FD): Snell lines up against the Royals for the second time in a week, however I believe he will have a much better outing as his last start was his first back from a fractured toe. The Royals are one of the worst offenses in the league against LHP with a .283 wOBA, 73 wRC+, and .147 ISO. Ownership will also be lower due to recency-bias. 

Other options to consider:

Walker Buehler, German Marquez

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Griffin Canning ($7800 DK, $6100 FD): Canning lines up for his major-league debut against the Blue Jays who are middle-of-the-pack against RHP this season with an 84 wRC+. He has fared well in Triple-A giving up only 1 earned run with remarkable control (17-1 K:BB).  

Jhoulys Chacin ($6200 DK, $6300 FD): Chacin has been whacked around a little bit so far this year, however his price is depressed in a plus-matchup against the Rockies who seem to struggle against good RHP on the road as they only have a 70 wRC+ so far this year. Chacin was the Brewers opening day starter and certainly has the ability to find his groove at any given moment.

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

Chicago White Sox: The White Sox line up against RHP Andrew Cashner tonight who has an extremely appealing exit-velocity as well as hard-contact rate against him so far this season. The White Sox have also racked up an impressive .336 wOBA, 111 wRC+, and .187 ISO against RHP which they will certainly improve upon tonight.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

Los Angeles Angels: The Angels have managed a .327 wOBA, 108 wRC+, and .176 ISO against RHP and find themselves matched up with the underwhelming Clay Buchholz who is 0-1 with a 4.60 ERA and only 8 K’s through three starts in 2019.
