Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Kenta Maeda ($9200 DK, $8300 FD): Maeda has a great matchup tonight with the Padres who are only implied for 3.4 runs. The Padres haven’t been very good offensively against RHP this season with a .297 wOBA, 86 wRC+, and a .175 ISO. Maeda is a good play in Cash games tonight. 

Patrick Corbin ($10,000 DK, $9400 FD): Corbin has a great matchup tonight with the Mets and has a massive 10.1 K Prediction making him my number one overall pitcher play on the slate. His recent numbers are slightly alarming however the upside is massive with so many K’s on the table. 

Other options to consider:

Mid-Tier Pitching Targets:

Eduardo Rodriguez ($8200 DK, $8400 FD): The Rockies have managed to put together a .278 wOBA, 70 wRC+, and a .168 ISO on the road this season, combined with Rodriguez pitching well this month makes him my favorite option for Cash to pair with Corbin. 

Jalen Beeks ($7600 DK, $ FD): Beeks will most likely be coming into the game after Stanek opens it up tonight. Flow-chart has been solid in 2019 and the Marlins have a .263 wOBA, 65 wRC+, and a .097 ISO against LHP which also supports Beeks as a solid GPP play. Not safe for Cash as he may not throw for more than 4 innings.

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

Houston Astros: The last seven days have seen the Astros accrue a whopping .404 wOBA, astounding 160 wRC+, and a .294 ISO. All of these numbers are leading the league as Houston is going to be an offense I consistently feel compelled to write-up. 

Other options to consider:

Milwaukee Brewers

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

Tampa Rays: The Citrus Series is in full effect down in Miami and the Rays line up against Jose Urena tonight. So far the Rays have a .337 wOBA, 114 wRC+, and a .190 ISO against RHP and I genuinely believe they make for a nice stack tonight.
