Friday's Starting Pitcher Strategy
Spencer Strider might have a big night in the Bay against the struggling Giants. However, the top-ranked pitcher can also carve up a struggling offense at a fraction of the salary, making it palatable to fade Strider. The second-ranked pitcher has bounced back from two lousy starts to reel off three gems. The third option has sterling home splits. And the fourth option has found his footing after a rough start to his big-league career.
Cash Game Recommendations:
Kodai Senga (NYM) vs. LAA
Senga has thrived at home this season. According to FanGraphs, in 68.1 innings at home, Senga has a 2.63 ERA, 3.70 xFIP, 1.11 WHIP, 11.0 BB% and 29.7 K%. The walk rate wasn't ideal. But Senga's elite punchout ability can offset his shaky control.
He should cruise against the struggling Angels tonight. In the previous 30 days, the Angels are 26th in wRC+ (82) and have a 26.7 K%.
Friday's Hitter Strategy
The Dodgers and Red Sox have appealing hitters in what should be a slugfest at Fenway Park. In addition, the Twins have some excellent one-offs and are an appealing complete stack in GPPs.
