FSi STARTING PITCHERS
Max Scherzer ($8600) vs Phillies
What a start to the year for Mad Max. In 5 games this year he is 4-0 averaging over 8ks a game. Currently sitting 3rd in strikeouts, I expect Max to take over the lead after today’s game.
His last start was against the Phillies, and he gave up 3 HRs that accounted for all the Phillies runs. Even with the 3 HRs he still dominated the game striking out 9 and dropping 36 points. I think he continues this groove, striking out 7 going 7 strong innings. Priced at 8.6K he is the 2nd highest pitcher, I think he hits value today.
Kevin Gausman ($7500) vs Guardians
Gausman is coming off 4 great starts against 3 great teams: the Astros, Red Sox, and Yankees. In these 4 games, he has yet to strike out less than 8 while going at least 6 in all but 1 of the games.
He has another tough matchup against the Guardians who are 4-1 in their last 5. Expect him to continue his dominance in pitching another 6 innings with 7-8 Ks. Priced at $7.5K, he gives you wiggle room with stacking hitters.
Yu Darvish ($7,200) vs Marlins
Yu was looking like he found his form a couple weeks ago pitching great outings against the Braves and Dodgers. Striking out 15 in those 2 games giving up just 1 earned. But, Yu got a little rattled in his last start vs the Pirates, getting lit up for 8 hits and 3 earned. He still managed to strike out 5 in 6 innings.
I think Yu finds himself again today against the Marlins as Miami is striking out at a rate of more than 9 times a game. Yu should be able to pick their lineup apart and have at least 6Ks going at least 6 innings. You should expect this game to be extremely low scoring where both pitchers have great games. Priced at 7.2K Yu gives you some room to spend elsewhere.
