On a day when there’s Clayton Kershaw and a lot of two’s priced as Aces, hunting for value is our favorite past-time. Enter Marco Gonzales ($7,700). You may remember him from such hits as a 3-0 April with a 2.14 ERA. Since then he’s hit a rough patch, but he did go 3-1 with a 3.54 ERA in July, including 6.0 innings with no walks, one earned run, and eight K’s against a Detroit team that still had Nick Castellanos on July 27th. He went 6+ innings against the Rays his last time out, with nine K’s and two earnies, but he left after being hit on the leg with a comebacker. He should be good to go today, but just in case you could more than throw a dart at Kyle Gibson against the sneakily struggling Brewers offense for a similar value play. Now on to the picks.

Houston Astros Right Handed Batters: Yuli Gurriel ($3,700) is the best value, especially considering he had a billion RBI in a single game recently, but if you can fit them in George Springer ($4,500) and Jose Altuve ($4,600) too. They’re facing Ross Detwiler of the White Sox, who gives up a .343 batting average and 1.052 OPS slash line to right handed hitters this year.
Anthony Santander, OF: $3,300 – He hits homers in bunches, and he’s in one of those grooves hitting them in back to back days.
New York Yankees: Brett Gardner ($3,300) has good success against Dylan Bundy, but anytime you can get Gleyber Torres ($4,100) against the Orioles it’s a must. Aaron Judge is a bargain at $3,900 when he’s at home. Didi Gregorius ($3,100) facing a righthander at home is the best bargain of all.
Jose Osuna, 3B: $2,600 – Even with a cheaper pitcher you have to find some value somewhere, and Osuna is quietly on a tear (.417 the last couple of weeks).
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Pretty clear everywhere, just some light rain in New York but it shouldn’t cause a problem.
