Friday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Framber Valdez tops tonight's pitching selections against the struggling Angels. He's the only high-salary arm featured today. German Marquez has a compelling case for top pitching honors when factoring in salary, netting him the second spot in today's rankings. Madison Bumgarner's DraftKings salary isn't too far behind Valdez's, making him a nifty pivot in GPPs in a plus matchup. Finally, Ian Anderson hasn't been himself in his two starts since returning from the injured list. However, a great matchup and the potential for recapturing his form catapults him into the GPP discussion.

Cash Game Recommendations:

Framber Valdez (HOU) vs. LAA
The Angels are completely out of sorts approaching the finish line. According to FanGraphs, they rank 28th in wRC+ (67) since the trade deadline. In addition, they've struck out in an exploitable 24.5% of their plate appearances.
