Max Scherzer – Scherzer comes in as the highest rated pitcher on both sites and St. Louis has a low implied run total of 2.86. Scherzer has elite strikeout stuff and is projected for a 34.1% strike out rate today. He is my SP1 for cash and will be in plenty of my tournament lineups.
Gerrit Cole – Cole Has a massive upside in a game against Baltimore with an implied run total of 2.96. Cole has gone at least 6 innings in 4 straight starts and 9+ strikeouts in 3 of his last 4. Cole has legit 10+ strike out upside today.

New York Yankees – The Yankees have the most home run upside on the slate and have the highest upside on the slate. They should come in as one of the highest owned teams on the slate but, it looks justified in the stack rankings. Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo, Josh Donaldson, and Joey Gallo stand out here.
Toronto Blue Jays – The Blue Jays have the highest implied run total on the slate at 4.94. They are a bit pricy but, they have a high upside and look to be under-owned. They’re a solid target for tournaments. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, George Springer and Teoscar Hernandez stand out here.
Note – The Yankees and Blue Jays both stand out on FanDuel as well! Both should be popular today.
Chicago White Sox – The White Sox are underpriced and have a solid matchup against Zack Greinke with an implied run total of 4.36. High upside with a team that can bang the longball against a starting pitcher with a low K%. Luis Robert, Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada and and Gavin Sheets stand out here.
Top One Offs
Top one offs of the day! Aaron Judge comes in with the top xwOBA at .385 and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. comes in with the highest xISO at .258. This list is dominated by Yankees, Phillies, White Sox and Blue Jays.
