Friday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

Logan Gilbert sticks out like a sore thumb as a value option on tonight's slate. However, I'm also digging the middle-tier front-line starters, Dylan Cease, Jose Berrios, and -- on DraftKings -- Max Fried.

Cash Game Recommendations:

Dylan Cease (CHW) at CLE
Since August 1, Cease's plate-discipline numbers are nearly on par with Gerrit Cole's. Do I have your attention now? Seriously, according to FanGraphs, he's generated a jaw-dropping 13.1 CSW% that's a mere half-percentage point below Cole's 31.6 CSW%. During those nine starts, he's recorded a 3.97 ERA, 3.47 xFIP, 3.27 SIERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 37.0 K%.
