Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Mike Clevinger ($12,100 DK, $10,200 FD): Clevinger has a 3.12 ERA along with a 2.27 xFIP supporting his strong pitching since returning from injury. He also has an average exit-velocity of 86.4 mph which suggests he’s doing a good job keeping opposition off-balance. Toronto is a below-average offense against RHP as well with only an 86 wRC+. 

Robbie Ray ($11,400 DK, $9600 FD): Ray has a plus-matchup at-home against the Orioles tonight who are a below-average offense against LHP this season with only an 85 wRC+. Ray also has some road/home splits in favor of his home-outings. 

Other options to consider:

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Marco Gonzales ($7900 DK, $7400 FD): Texas has an above-average K-rate against LHP this season, and a below-average wRC+ against LHP as well of only 82. Fits well in Cash lineups with Clevinger or Ray. 

Erick Fedde ($4500 DK, $5600 FD): Fedde is one of my favorite options tonight as the Rockies have a horrendous 68 wRC+ on the road to go along with a below-average overall wRC+ against RHP of 83. In the interest of full disclosure, Fedde does have an xFIP suggesting regression however I don’t believe that will happen tonight.

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

Washington Nationals:Washington is implied for the most total runs tonight, 6.10, and Lambert has a 6.06 ERA along with a very high homerun/fly ball rate of 24.3%. Left-handed bats have found great success against Lambert so look to target Washington’s lefties first.

New York Yankees

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

Arizona Diamondbacks:Arizona has been on-fire over the last week with a .377 wOBA, 132 wRC+, and a .231 ISO. Their opponent, Aaron Brooks, also has an xFIP of 5.16 to go with a 4.69 ERA which suggests regression is on the way.
