Sale will face the Rays in Tropicana Field. Sale is the best pitcher on the slate, is a big favorite, has the lowest OTT (see pitcher chart), and owns the second highest strikeout rate on the slate. The Rays are an average offense, but Sale gets a big park upgrade. You should play Sale in cash games even as the highest priced pitcher at $13,100.
I’m getting sick of writing up Richards every five days. If you’ve been reading all year, you know the drill. Richards is underpiced, again. The Blue Jays have the 9th highest strikeout rate against righties at 24.1% and have a below-average wRC+. It’s a park downgrade for Richards and the Blue Jays have a high walk rate, which gives me some concern. As of now, I’m fine with Richards as an SP2 in cash games, but he may be more suited for tournaments.
Lynn will face the Tigers in Target Field. He has not pitched well this year, averaging only 7.8 DK points per game. The good new is Lynn is insanely cheap. There are 25 hitters priced higher than Lynn on Tuesday. The Tigers are a bad offense, and have quite a few righties in their lineup, so I like Lynn as a cheap option to fit the top bats into your lineups.
