- Robbie Ray – I expect a hot Trevor Bauer to take on plenty of ownership today as the chalky high-priced option in a good matchup against KC, and while he’s certainly a very good play, Ray is a nice pivot in GPPs. Yes, Ray is taking on an all-righty lineup today for the Marlins, but he’s struck out 123 righties in 93 innings this year, and this game is in pitcher-friendly Miami. Plenty of upside here.
- Aaron Nola – Nola has pitched really well over the past month after a rough start to the season. He’s got a tough matchup against Atlanta, but when he’s on, he’s good enough to shut down any team. The last time he faced the Braves, he went eight scoreless with eight Ks and put up a really nice score. Let’s hope he can repeat that performance today.
- Kyle Gibson – Gibson has been up and down this season, but he’s got good stuff, and today he gets an excellent matchup on the road against the White Sox with no Jose Abreu in the lineup. Ryan Goins and Jon Jay are hitting in the top four today and scrubs like Adam Engel and Yolmer Sanchez are in the lineup as well, which bodes well for Gibson after facing a tough Yankees squad last game.
