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!

Madison Bumgarner, SP: Bumgarner is the pitcher to take early, as he can easily out-pitch anybody else on the slate against the Rockies at home. The Rockies are trash on the road and Bum came out firing in his last start, striking out eight hitters over eight scoreless innings. I’d either snag Bumgarner early or wait on Bieber, as I’m not a big fan of any other pitching options.
Giancarlo Stanton, IF: Stanton’s projection on Draft is only 0.4 points for some reason – I think something wonky is happening with their projections because he’s in an NL park. He’s still going to play, though, and still going to hit. Stanton has been absurd in the last month, batting .317 with eight homers.
Dee Gordon, IF: Gordon has a great matchup leading off against Alex Cobb in Baltimore. The Mariners should hang plenty of runs on the Orioles, and Gordon should be involved in a few as their number one hitter.
Alex Bregman, IF: Bregman’s rocking a 1.048 OPS with five homers over the last 15 days. He’s lit!
Eddie Rosario, OF: Rosario feels like a lock to go deep off of James Shields in Chicago. Even if he doesn’t Rosario should easily produce enough to warrant a pick as your top outfielder.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Seattle-Baltimore doesn’t look too good, with thunderstorms expected late into the night. There are lots of other chances of rain: CIN-ATL, NYY-PHI, OAK-DET are all worth keeping an eye on, but I’m not too worried about them compared to SEA-BAL.

I’ll take the Indians at +100 with Biebs on the mound.
