Monday's Starting Pitcher Strategy

A pair of National League East hurlers, Huascar Ynoa and Ranger Suarez, top my pitcher rankings tonight. They're my preferred options in cash games. However, they're stellar selections in GPPs, too. Speaking of GPPs, Freddy Peralta and Nestor Cortes are my favorite GPP pivots off Ynoa and Suarez.

Cash Game Recommendations:

Huascar Ynoa (ATL) at ARI
Ynoa opened the year pitching well before a lengthy injured list stint. Thankfully, he's resumed pitching well in his return. According to FanGraphs, in his last six stats totaling 32.2 innings, he's twirled a 3.58 ERA, 3.47 xFIP, 3.63 SIERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 27.5 K%.

The righty's odds of extending his stretch of pitching well are enhanced tonight by facing the Diamondbacks. They rank 29th in wRC+ (79) against righties in 2021, stinking of late as well -- 82 wRC+ over the last 30 days.
