What you need to know for Tuesday’s MLB Games

By Derek Carty

  • Tuesday’s top streamer at starting pitcher is Nick Lodolo (31%). The rookie has been quite good this season, posting an 11.7 K/9 and 3.29 xFIP to support his 3.81 ERA. The matchup against Boston isn’t ideal, but his strong skillset still gives him a top-10 projection in THE BAT X today.

  • If you’re desperate for starts, Austin Voth (4%) is available almost everywhere and is in an elite matchup against the Tigers. The skills leave a lot to be desired, but THE BAT X thinks he can post a low-4.00s ERA with a 1.26 WHIP and 5 strikeouts.

  • The Dodgers and Diamondbacks play a double-header today. The Dodgers project for the most and second-most runs on the slate today, but unfortunately most of their guys who will play both games are long gone in your leagues. It’s worth checking if Chris Taylor (58%) is on your wire, though. The Diamondbacks have Christian Walker (78%) and Josh Rojas (66%) as elite options, if available. If not, Geraldo Perdomo (sub-1%) has been playing almost every game, while Jake McCarthy (48%) and Alek Thomas (5%) have a shot to play both.

  • If you the cupboard is just for double-header guys, we still have the Giants in Coors Field against Kyle Freeland, making their righties elite plays. Wilmer Flores (75%), Evan Longoria (1%), JD Davis (sub-1%), and Joey Bart (4%) in particular are strong options. But anyone who cracks the lineup (lefty or righty) should be strongly considered.

  • If you’re looking for steals down the stretch, see if Garrett Hampson (sub-1%) cracks Colorado’s lineup today. Carlos Rodon is a great pitcher, but he’s very easy to steal on, and it’s Coors Field. Otherwise, check out Cleveland guys like Myles Straw (23%) and Andres Gimenez (76%) – with Amed Rosario (85%) and Steven Kwan (77%) slightly lesser options. They face Dylan Cease, who is also elite but easy to steal on.
