Pitcher

Jose Berrios (MIN): $8,800 vs. Detroit
Berrios has struggled over his last three games, but the salary has fallen as a result. That presents an interesting buy-low opportunity for the Minnesota ace. This matchup couldn’t be much better, as the Tigers have a historically bad offense that ranks last in wRC+ with the highest strikeout rate (26.6%) as well. If Berrios is going to bounce-back, this is certainly the time to make it happen. 

Other Pitchers to consider: Jack Flaherty, Zack Greinke
