Top-Tier Pitching Targets:

Sonny Gray ($9100 DK, $9800 FD): Over the last two weeks, STL has only managed a .292 wOBA, 79 wRC+, and .126 ISO. Gray has been very consistent, slightly better on the road, however not enough of a difference to raise any concern. Limited options tonight, Gray and Heaney make sense for Cash however. 

Andrew Heaney ($9000 DK, $6400 FD): The White Sox are implied for the lowest runs on the slate, and have only managed a .281 wOBA, 73 wRC+, and .105 ISO over the last week. They do seem to have more success against LHP than RHP, however Heaney should keep them in-check this evening and with limited options Heaney is safe for Cash.

Mid-Tier/Cheap Pitching Targets:

Alex Young ($8100 DK, $7500 FD): The Giants have only managed a .291 wOBA, 79 wRC+, and .147 ISO against LHP this season, slightly better on the road, however with limited options tonight I’m all for gambling with the numbers on Young.

Top-Tier Offensive Stack:

Minnesota Twins: The Twins are implied for the highest run-total on the slate, 6.45, and have cranked opposing pitchers on the road this year to the tune of a whopping .352 wOBA, 120 wRC+, and .242 ISO as they line up against Payano tonight who has an ERA of 3.86 to go with his xFIP of 5.73 suggesting regression is on the way fast.

Other options to consider:

New York Yankees

Mid-Tier/Cheap Offensive Stack:

Texas Rangers: Texas performs better offensively at-home which makes sense as Texas is one of the better park-factors in the league. They have a .337 wOBA, slightly below-average 95 wRC+, and .210 ISO at-home and make sense in a game-stack with Minnesota this evening.
