Slate Summary

  • DraftKings did a very poor job pricing Gerrit Cole as he should be much higher. He will be close to 100% owned and I will be locking him.
  • Cole played the Orioles his last start and didn’t have his best command but still got there with 22.3 fpts. I think he pitches much better today and for 10.5k, easy lock in cash games and you could possibly argue of locking him in GPP.
  • SP2 is ugly today but I think the chalk route is pairing Marco Gonzales who is 5.3k which is what I will be doing. I will be locking him in as well as Cole for cash games. Marco has had 2 strong games as of late and will be facing the A’s.
  • Turner and Freeman are priced up but should crush the ball tonight if the field stays dry enough to play. Definitely something to monitor closely as there are some weather concerns in Washington.


  • Gerrit Cole (NYY) (P) (10.5)
  • Marco Gonzales (SEA) (P) (5.3)
  • Trea Turner (LAD) (SS) (6.0)
  • Freddie Freeman (LAD) (1B) (5.4)


  • Carlos Santana (KC) (1B) (2.0)
  • Nolan Gorman (STL) (2B) (2.0)
  • Estevan Florial (NYY) (OF) (2.0)
