Slate Summary

  • We have no Coors now but plenty of action in a big 11 game slate so let’s dive right into my core plays.
  • The only pitcher I am looking at to roster today in cash games is Sean Manaea for 9.9. He has had a solid season and close to a 30% strikeout rate. He faces the Giants who are tough but he should get the run support and get by, even if he doesn’t rack up the Ks. He should also be the chalk pitcher on the slate if you are a fan of ownership.
  • It was a toss up for me between Manaea and Tellez as my cover boy. However, I like Tellez a lot today for 2.8. Although he is 0-2 vs Fedde, Tellez is batting cleanup for a really good price. The Brewers are my favorite team to stack tonight as well in both formats.
  • Jose Ramirez might get under looked here but right after the Brewers, I have the Guardians as a top team to target. In a very small sample size, Ramirez is batting .444 against Skubal so he gets pretty good contact off the lefty pitcher.
  • Javier Baez is a great option tonight for 2.7. Since I am playing Manaea and not Civale, I like Baez for a good value play. Almost always on a bigger slate, I don’t play any batters against my own pitcher so I will likely fade Baez on DK but play him here.


  • Sean Manaea (SD) (P) (9.9)
  • Rowdy Tellez (MIL) (1B) (2.8)
  • Jose Ramirez (CLE) (3B) (4.1)
  • Javier Baez (DET) (SS/2B) (2.7)


  • Tyrone Taylor (MIL) (OF) (2.1)
  • Mike Zunino (TB) (C) (2.1)
  • Kyle Garlick (MIN) (OF) (2.0)
