P- Madison Bumgarner (vs. San Diego Padres): $11,100. In 161 career at bats against Bumgarner, the Padres’ offense is batting .174, with 51 strikeouts, and a .235 OBP. He has been dominant all season long, so it shouldn’t be any different on Friday.
P- Yovanni Gallardo (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $6,700. In 69 career at bats against Gallardo, the Rays’ offense is batting .203, with 15 strikeouts, and a .267 OBP. This is a risky pick based on Gallardo’s performance in 2016, but he has a favorable matchup. The Rays offense is ranked in the bottom third of the MLB in runs scored, OBP, slugging percentage, and OPS in 2016.

- Jason Groome (BOS, 17 Years Old, LHP): Well, this ranking won’t mean anything if the Red Sox don’t sign Groome after drafting him 12th overall in the 2016 MLB Draft. The Sox and Groome are still in negotiations, but nothing as been finalized yet. At only 17 years old, Groome is incredibly advanced on the mound. He throws a mid-90’s fastball from the left-side, which has great late movement. He also shows a great feel for his breaking ball and changeup. To go along with his great repertoire, Groome has showed great command for a kid his age. Many people expected Groome to go first overall in the draft, but he started to trend downwards due to maturity questions and sign-ability issues. If the Red Sox sign Groome, he has the upside of a frontline starter.
Lots of teams need pitching.
Not a lot of great pitchers are available.
Zack Greinke is a great pitcher.
The Diamondbacks are going nowhere.
By the time they are contenders, Zack Greinke will probably no longer an ace and his contract will be an unbelievable burden on the Diamondbacks.
See where I am taking this? Time to shop Greinke while his injuries are minor.
