I usually like to pounce on the weakest SP’s and start filling in my hitters but today there’s actually several solid pitchers that had me going up and down the list trying to find a weak SP to feast upon. SP Eric Lauer $8800 is NOT one of those and gets the Cubs at home. He’s 2-0 with a 0.93 ERA over 19.1 frames in his last three outings and the Cubs are losers of 4 straight.

Gerrit Cole, SP: $11,500
Cole has been dominant across his last six starts, never allowing more than two earned runs to maintain a 1.35 ERA with a 48:11 K:BB across 33.1 frames. Overall, Cole has a 2.75 ERA across 163.2 innings on the campaign.
Bobby Dalbec, C/1B: $3500
Dalbec has really found a groove, in his last 15 games has 8 R, 5 HR, 10 RBI with a 1.092 OPS.
Anthony Rizzo, C/1B: $3400
Always dangerous at home against a righty, a hunch play.
Enrique Hernandez, 2B: $3600
2 hits and 2 runs scored last game, could be the start of a warm streak.
Brandon Lowe, 2B: $3400
Lowe is always worth a look against a righthander and has 3 HR 7 RBI with a .976 OPS in his last 15 games.
Joey Wendle, 3B: $2500
Wendle gives us salary relief and if he’s in the lineup he can give sneaky value against righties.
Eduardo Escobar, 3B: $3400
4 HR and 9 RBI in his last 15 games and Cubs pitching could help him pad stats.
Fernando Tatis Jr., SS: $4500
Tatis has been his normal studly self lately and I’m calling for HR #40 in this game.
Brendan Rodgers, SS: $2700
Rogers is turning into the player everyone thought he would be last yr and has been stroking on this road trip.
Brett Gardner, OF: $2300
3 HR 10 RBI and .980 OPS in his last 15 games, Gardner is a great value in this spot.
Juan Soto, OF: $4300
On fire his last 30 games, great stats across the board and lets not forget this kid is only 22.
Cedric Mullins, OF: $2900
Mullins is now just one home run away from the first 30-30 season in Orioles history. The 26-year-old has been one of the biggest breakout stars of the 2021 campaign, slashing .302/.368/.535 with 68 extra-base hits in his first full year as a starter.
