What you need to know for Tuesday’s MLB Games

By Derek Carty

  • Chris Sale (67% rostered in ESPN leagues) currently sports an 11.25 ERA through 3 starts, which has led to him being dropped in a number of leagues. It’s worth checking if he’s on your wire, because he’ll be worth picking up as the day’s top streamer if he’s available. His K/9 is 14.3 and his xFIP is 3.74 portend much better results to come.

  • Assuming Sale isn’t available, there are three widely available pitchers that project nearly identically and are worth streaming. Ken Waldichuk (sub-1% rostered), Eduardo Rodriguez (7%), and Clarke Schmidt (3%) all face offenses that are taking a park hit and all have good pitching weather.

  • On the hitting side, the Phillies and White Sox play a double-header. That means double the volume for anyone that plays both games. Bryson Stott (29%), Andrew Benintendi (25%), Brandon Marsh (20%), and Oscar Colas (11%) are your best bets in that regard among widely available options.

  • Outside of the double-header, the Pirates are the clear best team to stream from. They go into Coors Field to face the day’s weakest pitcher in Jose Urena with the day’s second-best hitting weather, and almost the whole team is widely available. Carlos Santana (18%), Andrew McCutchen (17%), Ke’Bryan Hayes (16%), and Ji Hwan Bae (3%) are the best choices, but anyone in the lineup would be worth considering.

  • If you’re looking for speed, the Atlanta Braves have the best stolen base matchup by a huge margin. The top three in projected SBs today are all Braves. Ronald Acuna (100%) and Ozzie Albies (97%) are long-gone in fantasy, but there’s a good chance you’ll find value on their SB props at sportsbooks. If Eli White (sub-1%) cracks the lineup, though, you’ll want to jump on him. Vaughn Grissom (37%) is also likely available to you.
