Max is by far the best pitcher on the slate. Just plug him in, in cash games and tournaments. He is facing a putrid Marlins team that has a 23% k rate and a measly .100 iso. We know Max is a stud with his 32% k rate vs lefties and a 37% k rate vs righties.
Jack is facing off vs the Brewers who he previously dominated this year with 13 k and only 1 ER over 7 IP. MIL has a 25% k rate and a .156 iso vs right-handed pitching over the last month. Jack is sporting an impressive 26% k rate vs lefties and a 34% k rate vs righties. I think he cruises through this matchup and racks up at least 8 Ks.
Freddy is way too cheap when considering his strikeout upside. He has a 28% k rate vs lefties and a massive 35% k rate vs righties. I’ll take a shot all day on someone this cheap with that kind of K stuff. He gets to face the right-handed heavy Cardinals. While they only have a 19% k rate vs righties, I’m confident Freddies 35% k rate will naturally raise that number. For the price, I think Freddy has the highest upside on the slate.
Brian will be facing the Rays in Boston. They have a 22% k rate and a .098 iso vs left-handed pitching over the last month. Brian has a very respectable 26% k rate vs lefties and a 21% k rate vs righties. Brian should be able to limit the damage as well as pick up some ks vs this lineup.
The Dodgers have been awful vs left-handed pitching over the past month sporting a 24% k rate and a .104 iso. Wade has a 20% k rate vs both sides of the plate. Based on the Dodgers’ performance over the past month, I feel like Wade will be able to pay off this salary and then some.
