Pitching Preview

Let’s dive right into the pitching options for tonight. We’ve got some stellar choices to consider, so let’s break it down.

Spencer Strider (DraftKings: $11,500)

Opponent: Philadelphia Phillies

Strider’s Stats:

  • Strikeout Rate: 37.6%
  • Walk Rate: 7.8%
  • HR/9: 1.07
  • ERA: 2.82
  • Sierra: 3.50
  • Medium Contact Rate: 50.7%
  • Fly Ball Rate: 45.4%
  • Swinging Strike Rate: 19.3%

Spencer Strider headlines tonight’s slate as one of the elite pitchers. He boasts an impressive 37.6% strikeout rate and a low walk rate. While he faces a tough Phillies lineup, Strider’s ability to generate swings and misses gives him a high ceiling for strikeouts.

Blake Snell (DraftKings: $11,300)

Opponent: Colorado Rockies

Snell’s Stats:

  • Strikeout Rate: 31.4%
  • Walk Rate: 13.4%
  • HR/9: 0.81
  • ERA: 4.10
  • Medium Contact Rate: 51.5%
  • Ground Ball Rate: 43.5%

Blake Snell is a top-tier option tonight, even though he has struggled with walks this season. His matchup against the Colorado Rockies, who struggle against lefties, presents a significant opportunity for strikeouts. Look for Snell to exploit this weakness.

Luis Castillo (DraftKings: $10,900)

Opponent: Oakland Athletics

Castillo’s Stats:

  • Strikeout Rate: 27.2%
  • Walk Rate: 6.4%
  • HR/9: 1.29
  • ERA: 3.69

Luis Castillo might not have the highest strikeout rate among the top pitchers, but he faces the Oakland Athletics, who struggle against righties. Castillo’s consistency and the favorable matchup make him an attractive option tonight.

Zach Gallen (DraftKings: $10,600)

Opponent: San Francisco Giants

Gallen’s Stats:

  • Strikeout Rate: 25.7%
  • Walk Rate: 5.3%
  • HR/9: 0.98
  • ERA: 3.70
  • Medium Contact Rate: 50.4%
  • Ground Ball Rate: 40.5%

Zach Gallen might not be a strikeout machine, but he limits hard contact and has a solid matchup against the San Francisco Giants. While he may not have the same strikeout upside as Strider or Snell, his ability to generate ground balls can help him navigate this game effectively.

Hitting Stacks to Target

Now that we’ve covered the top pitching options, let’s explore some of the hitting stacks that could provide significant value for your lineups.

Atlanta Braves

Opponent: Philadelphia Phillies

The Braves are looking to bounce back from a losing streak, and tonight’s matchup against Christopher Sanchez of the Phillies presents an excellent opportunity for them to do just that. Keep an eye on players like Austin Riley, Ronald Acuña Jr., Marcell Ozuna, and Darnell Murphy.

Los Angeles Dodgers

Opponent: [Opponent Team]

The Dodgers are a powerhouse offense, and they have a knack for putting up runs. While their opponent may change, consider stacking Dodgers like Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, and Corey Seager when they’re in favorable matchups.

Cleveland Guardians

Opponent: Kansas City Royals

The Guardians are in a great spot tonight, facing a right-handed pitcher, Stephen Cruz, who is relatively untested in the MLB. Look to stack hitters like Jose Ramirez, Josh Naylor, and Andres Jimenez for potential power and value.

San Diego Padres

Opponent: Colorado Rockies

The Padres have shown they can explode offensively, and they face a less-experienced pitcher tonight. Consider targeting players like Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, and Xander Bogaerts if he’s in the lineup.

Washington Nationals

Opponent: Chicago White Sox

The Nationals might not be the flashiest offense, but they have a favorable matchup tonight against Jose Ureña, who has a history of allowing home runs. Look for affordable hitters in the Nationals lineup to provide value and potentially hit a few long balls.
