Usually readers know my Saturday posts are all about value on the mound. Sometimes it’s just not there. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and recommend the most expensive pitcher on the board, Mike Clevinger ($11,200). There are just too many positives: He’s at home, where he’s gone 3-0 with a 1.85 ERA. The Royals only hit .238 with a .594 OPS against him. If that’s not enough, the wind is howling in at Progressive Field in Cleveland. But if you think you won’t find value here you’re wrong. Using the powerful tool of ISO over the past two weeks, along with the usual Razzball insight, we present Saturday’s all value team after a quick word from our sponsor.

Francisco Mejia, C: $2,800: Mejia gets to face off against the blowing up right hander Nathan Eovaldi of the Red Sox. He’s got a robust .387 ISO the past couple of weeks (Mike Trout leads the league with a .363 ISO for the year), and is hitting .333 with a .952 OPS since the All Star break.
Wilmer Flores, 2B: $2,700: The perennial fantasy sleeper is finally hitting, with a .464 ISO the past two weeks. He’s facing Chase Anderson of the Brewers, who allows right handed hitters like Flores to hit .298/.926 against him.
Mike Yastrzemski, OF: $3,600: The lone batter recommendation above $3,500, Yaz is hitting a triple crown level .524 ISO the past two weeks. Yes, he’s in Oakland, but he can hit them out of anywhere right now.
Kevin Pillar, OF: $3,000: The former Blue Jay is loving playing on Yaz’s team. .465 ISO the past two weeks tells you all you need to know. And thus ends the all value team of the day.
