Maeda will face the Phillies in Dodger Stadium. The Phillies take a park hit and strike out at the 4th highest rate in the league. Maeda is a big favorite and has an OTT (see pitcher chart) of three, lowest on the slate. Maeda has been incredible recently scoring 36.8 and 39.4 DK points in his last two starts. I don’t expect 30+, but I do expect Maeda to reach value at his $10,800 salary. I’m currently considering Maeda for both cash games and tournaments.
Ross will face the Marlins in Petco Park. The Marlins have the 12th highest strikeout rate in the league but rank 28th in wRC+. Ross is a big favorite as well and has an OTT of three, tied with Maeda for the lowest on the slate. For $9,500, Ross is firmly in play for tournaments and is a fringe cash game option.
Duffy will face the Twins in Kauffman Stadium. The Twins are in the middle of the pack in strikeout rate, but rank 24th in wRC+. Duffy is a slight underdog and has an OTT of 4.5. It’s not a great matchup, but this is more about the price than the matchup or the pitcher. Duffy is priced at $4,000, the same price we pay for relievers on DraftKings. He’s a league average pitcher, but is priced as the worst on the slate. With a Coors Field game on the slate, I’m considering Duffy in both cash games and tournaments.
