Slate Summary

  • Nothing better to start the week than a big 9 game slate of MLB for the main slate. For cash and GPP contests, my favorite pitcher is Carlos Rodon who is a lock for me on both sites in cash / SE tournaments. For my bats, there are a lot of great options today like Turner and Robert as spend ups or salary relief plays like Varsho, Slater and Cooper. If I were to pick one bat, my target would be Varsho on both sites. He has had an excellent start to the season and is finally getting recognized as his price now is slowly starting to creep up. For GPPs, I am prioritizing ARI and SF for my bats but on a huge slate like today, you will want a few shares from other teams like TB and CWS.


  • Carlos Rodon (SF) (P) – $10,000
  • Trea Turner (LAD) (SS) – $5,400
  • Daulton Varsho (ARI) (C/OF) – $3,800
  • Luis Robert (CWS) (OF) – $4,700
  • Austin Slater (SF) (OF) – $2,900
