“Kenta, do you love me? ‘Cause I want ya, and I need ya.” Kenta Maeda will be doing his own In My Feelings challenge as he takes on the Padres in what could be the most valuable start of the night on Draft. Maeda has incredible numbers this year, with a 28.7% K-rate and a 2.89 FIP, which makes it really surprising to see guys like Freddy Peralta and Luke Weaver projected for more points. Furthermore, Maeda has the best matchup that any righty could ask for at San Diego – their .287 wOBA versus righties is dead last in all of baseball, and their 25.9% is second-highest. As Drake would say, I’m down for ya always.

Gerrit Cole and his insane K-rate will be bringing the fireworks against the Rangers on today’s July 4th matchup. Cole always has high strikeout upside, but he’s got even more against a Rangers lineup that strikes out 25.3% of the time against righties, the fourth highest mark in the league. Cole should have no problem outperforming his Draft projection today. I’m looking to snag him in my drafts.

If you’re looking for a late round pitcher to snag on Draft, turn to Indians starter Shane Bieber. He’s torn up opposing batters in his three starts this year, as he’s got 22 strikeouts in 18 1/3 innings with only five earned runs allowed. His only matchups this year, the Twins and Tigers, aren’t particularly tough, but neither are the Cardinals – their .313 wOBA versus righties ranks them 15th in the majors. Leave it to Bieber!

Joey Lucceshi is making his first start back from the disabled list today, which is the perfect opportunity to buy him on Draft. He looks like he’s back at full strength from his hip injury, as he was pumping 96 MPH in his rehab start. Lucceshi has a 24.9% K-rate through nine starts this year with a 3.47 Deserved Run Average and has an awesome matchup against the Athletics. The A’s are awful against lefties, as they’ve got a .291 wOBA, which is third-worst in the league, and a 24.6% K-rate. Lucceshi also gets to face them at home in arguably the most pitcher-friendly park in all of baseball. He should come at great value in your drafts.

Drafting Anthony Rizzo is the first step in the blueprint for success on Wednesday. Rizzo has been getting busy in the last 15 days, batting .327 with a 1.094 OPS and five homers. He gets to take advantage of one of the best hitter’s parks in the league in Milwaukee, where he already homered on Monday. Rizzo should have the opportunity to drive in plenty of runs as the Cubs cleanup hitter against Jhoulys Chacin, who has a 4.75 Deserved Run Average this season. I’d try pairing Rizzo with a teammate like Kyle Schwarber, but even as a standalone play, Rizzo is worth an early pick on Draft.

Just when it seemed like Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty was in the majors for good, the Cardinals went and sent him down. Oh, wait, he’s not in triple-A, he’s just facing another minor league lineup in the Marlins. After all, they’re starting guys like JT Riddle and Lewis Brinson. Miami has just a .283 wOBA versus righties this year, which is the second lowest mark in the league. Since Flaherty has already had success in the major leagues, he should put together a great start tonight, and you can get him for cheap on Draft.

There are five aces starting today – four of them are projected for over 12 points by Draft, but one was left behind. Shohei Ohtani is projected for just 9.6 points, which means I’ll be taking batters first and waiting to snag him later. Ohtani should have a much better day than Draft projects. He’s got an elite 32.3% K-rate with just an 8.7% walk-rate with just a 2.69 Deserved Run Average. The Tigers have just a .306 wOBA versus right-handed pitching this season, so Ohtani will have no issues with them.

There’s been plenty of talk this year around guys like Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander (and rightfully so) but it feels like Jacob deGrom hasn’t gotten the same kind of hype despite his absurd numbers. deGrom has a 34.3% K-rate with just a 7.0% walk-rate and isn’t giving up any homers, giving him a 1.82 FIP and a 1.89 Deserved Run Average. He’s coming off of a dominant start against the DBacks where he struck out 13 batters, and now gets another easy matchup in the Marlins. Miami has the second-worst lineup in the league against righties with just a .279 wOBA. deGrom is worth spending your first pick on today.

Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ is a pitcher that I’m targeting in all of my drafts on Wednesday. While he’s gotten blown up in his last two starts, Happ still has an awesome 29.2% K-rate on the season with just a 6.8% walk-rate. His home run issues won’t be as much of a problem today as he’s away from his home ballpark. Citi Field is a pitcher-friendly venue, and the Mets lineup is a pitcher-friendly lineup against lefties. In fact, the Mets have been worse than any team in baseball this year against left-handed pitching, as they’ve got a pathetic .265 wOBA versus southpaws. This is a matchup that you don’t want to miss out on.

Mike Moustakas is one of DFSBot’s top five hitters for Draft contests on this Wednesday for his matchup at Baltimore. Moose has been unstoppable against right-handed pitching this season, putting up a .326/.376/.709 line with just a 9.7% K-rate. He’ll be batting third in the Royals lineup in Camden Yards, one of the best hitter’s parks in all of baseball. Orioles starter Andrew Cashner has a 5.82 FIP with a 2.09 HR/9 this year, making him one of the top pitching targets on the day. Moose is a play you don’t want to miss out on. Here are a few more of my favorites…
