Jacob deGrom (NYM): $11,500 at Kansas City
The Mets’ righty doesn’t need much explanation at this point of the season. He has been rolling along, and I would be shocked if that doesn’t continue in tonight’s matchup against a Kansas City team that ranks 27th in wRC+. New York steps in as a convincing -235 road favorite, and Kauffman Stadium’s pitcher-friendly atmosphere doesn’t hurt either. Add it all up, and deGrom is worth the premium salary. 

Other Pitchers to consider: Hyun-Jin Ryu (LAD), Eduardo Rodriguez (BOS)
