Wednesday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
The top pitcher tonight is a strikeout whiz in a dreamy matchup. The second and third pitchers on the table are approximately equal. However, the third pitcher is the best SP2 in cash games on DK because he's slightly cheaper, has better betting info and will likely be on a higher percentage of rosters. The second pitcher has a higher ceiling, making him an exciting GPP option. And the final pitcher successfully returned to the majors in his most recent start. One start doesn't erase his earlier struggles. Yet, he's worth a dart at DK in tournaments for his value salary.

Cash Game Recommendations:

Pablo Lopez (MIN) vs. KC
Lopez has DFS-friendly numbers lately. According to FanGraphs, in Lopez's last five starts spanning 30.2 innings, he has had a 3.52 ERA, 3.38 xFIP, 3.26 SIERA, 1.11 WHIP, 7.1 BB%, 31.5 K% and 31.0 CSW%.

Lopez can dominate from the bump tonight in a mouthwatering matchup. First, the Royals are 30th in wRC+ (79) and have a 24.5 K% versus righties in 2023. Second, Kansas City is tied for 25th in wRC+ (79) and has a 26.8 K% in the previous 14 days. Third, they are 30th in wRC+ (77) and have a 27.6 K% on the road this year. Finally, per BettingPros, the Twins are -260.

Wednesday's Hitter Strategy
The Dodgers and Braves are too expensive to stack in cash games fully. However, they have appealing options. Thankfully, the Twins have a few cap-friendly picks for all game types to offset the salaries of the studs. As a result, lineups in cash games have a stars-and-punts feel.
