White Sox starter Michael Kopech will be making his fourth major league start tonight against the Tigers. He’s only got 11 innings in three starts this year because of two rain delays, and it looks like there’s more rain on the way in Chicago tonight. However, it looks like Kopech may have finally dodged the rain, as there’s a window for game time with a 43% chance of thunderstorm. Assuming his start isn’t rained out, Kopech has an outstanding matchup against the Tigers, who have the second-lowest wOBA versus righties at .291. He’s got a ton of upside that you don’t want to miss out on.

Hyun-Jin Ryu, SP: The Mets are the worst lineup in baseball against lefties with their .284 wOBA, and they’ve got the second-highest K-rate at 24.8%. Ryu has been dominant in his 10 starts this year, posting a 28.6% K-rate with a 2.24 ERA. I’m comfortable taking him as my top starting pitcher.
Anthony Rizzo, IF: Rizzo is insane, batting .426 with a 1.360 OPS and six homers in his last 15 days. He’s in an extreme hitter’s park in Milwaukee against Jhoulys Chacin, who has a 4.55 SIERA and a 4.63 Deserved Run Average.
Evan Longoria, IF: Cooooooooooooors.
Michael Brantley, OF: There’s just no way that Royals starter Brad Keller is actually good – he’s got a 16.2% K-rate and a 7.6% HR/FB rate. Something’s gotta budge, so I’ll take my bets on Brantley and the Indians.
Mallex Smith, OF: Smith is an exciting player if he’s able to keep up his 124 wRC+. With his speed out of the leadoff spot, he can put up a lot of fantasy points.
