Carlos Carrasco, $25,500 and the red hot Cleveland Indians are hosting the team formally known as the Detroit Tigers. If you haven’t been keeping track the current Tigers aren’t posting a fearsome lineup by any means. Nick Castellanos is swinging a hot bat, but other than him they are ice cold and Carrasco es en fuego! Over his last three starts he’s 2-0 with 23 innings pitched, 24 Ks and 2 ER. Yes, please and thank you. Carrasco is the highest priced pitcher tonight, but with some creative pairing I’m confident we can piece together a winning roster. Brandon Woodruff, $14,100, versus Pittsburgh is just what the doctor ordered to balance out the high price tag of Carrasco. Woodruff has been very serviceable since being called up in early August. He’s 1-1 with 1.52 ERA, with 20 Ks in 23.2 innings. He’s facing a scuffling Pirates squad that’s only won 4 of it’s last twelve games and they’ve only scored a total of 6 runs over the last 5 games. There’s not a ton of data to go off of for Woody, but I’ll take with the discounted price tag tonight. Now that our pitching is set, let’s take a look at our offensive options.

Kendrys Morales, IF: $8,400 – He’s got two HRs to go along with his 6 game hitting streak. He’s facing Ubaldo Jimenez at home tonight and I have a feeling it’s going to get ugly real fast. Feel free to put together a Blue Jays stack if you’re not feeling the other picks.
Welington Castillo, IF: $6,400 – Where’s the Beef? It’s in Baltimore Yo. Big Beefy has 5 HRs over his last 10 games and I have a feeling he’ll be feast in Toronto tonight.
Nelson Cruz, OF: $8,400 – I’m leaning on the Hitterton for this one as he’s numero uno. The Boomstick is facing Cole Hamels tonight and he comes in riding a seven game hitting streak. Get hot, stay hot.
Mitch Haniger, OF: $8,000 – This dude is hot as a pistol, 18 hits in the last 10 games. I think he might be healthy again folks.
Michael Saunders, OF: $5,600 – Discount Double Check. I’m hoping he’s in th elineup tonight as he owns Ubaldo, 9/21 with 4 HRs.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Clear skies tonight for all eight games. Let’s Play Ball!
