P- Jacob deGrom (vs. Atlanta Braves): $11,300. deGrom has had some pretty bad luck recently when it comes to run support, but this hasn’t affected how well he has pitched. In his last five starts, he has four quality starts and he dominated the Pirates’ over his last two starts. In six career starts against the Braves, deGrom owns a 3-2 record with a 1.89 ERA.
P- Mike Fiers (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $6,500. Fiers is coming off one of his best starts of the season, in which he gave up two runs and five hits against the Rays in seven innings of work. He is pitching at home, which is very good. He owns a 3.67 ERA at home, compared to a 6.19 ERA on the road. In 67 career at bats against Fiers, the Reds’ lineup is batting .179, with one home run, seven XBH, 10 RBIs, 14 strikeouts, and a .242 OBP.

There has been a lot of hype surrounding a possible pitcher’s home run derby this year, but it has not been confirmed. Most of the hype is surrounding guys like Madison Bumgarner or Jake Arrieta, but let’s be honest, there is only one pitcher that truly needs to be in the home run derby. That one pitcher is big sexy himself, Bartolo Colon.
Out of all the years I have watched baseball, I have never seen a player get more attention every time he swings the bat, sometimes makes contact, and even when he runs. This man would be an absolute gem if he received an invitation to the home run derby and we need to find a way to make it happen. I have started a vote to try and petition Bartolo into the derby, so please join me and help!
