Tanner Roark (CIN) $7,300 @ SDP
The pitching in this slate is honestly kind of disgusting. Many will probably pay up for Domingo German but I have a few concerns with that. He has only went longer than five innings once this year, and this three starts were against the Chicago White Sox, Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers who aren’t quite as good of offenses as the Kansas City Royals. While I usually like paying down for pitchers, the few options like Homer Bailey, Zach Davies and Kyle Freeland all have tough matchups.
Cincinnati Reds starter Tanner Roark is going to be my play for today. He isn’t quite a lock for me because I wouldn’t blame you for taking a chance on one of the cheaper guys, but he isn’t quite cheap enough to call a value. Roark has a good matchup at San Diego where the Padres rank 21st in runs scored. His 4.30 ERA may scare away fantasy owners, but he has a 9.20 K/9 that can get him quite a few points especially against a team that strikes out a lot.
