Slate Summary

  • We are back! As always, I will be posting my favorite core plays that I will have in my cash game lineup. However, news will break throughout the day so make sure have notifications on for our Discord community as core plays will be updated.
  • We have a giant slate today but with a lot of weather concerns. Definitely need to be alert, especially if you plan on playing GPP.
  • To start things off, Byron Buxton for 3.8k is a lock for me. Projected to bat 2nd against a “triple-a” pitcher in Spenser Watkins, his price is simply too cheap for this matchup. Also the Twins have a ITT of 6.68 which is the highest on the slate.
  • The player most likely on the mound for me will be Corbin Burnes. Even though Burnes is the most expensive pitcher on the slate, he is in one of the best matchups against the Pirates who are top 4 in strikeouts against right-handed pitchers at a 25% k rate. Projecting 8 strikeouts, a quality start and a win for the elite ace.
  • My favorite player from the Diamondbacks today is Alek Thomas for 2.7k. Lineups are confirmed already and with Thomas batting 2nd against Senzatela, it’s hard not to play him today. I will be heavy on the Diamondbacks grabbing 4 players as Senzatela is a very mediocre pitcher who should get lit up.


  • Byron Buxton (MIN) (OF) – $3,800
  • Corbin Burnes (MIL) (P) – $10,900
  • Alek Thomas (ARI) (OF) – $2,700
