P- Hisashi Iwakuma (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $9,300. Iwakuma has shown great career success against the Angels in over 150 plate appearances. The Angels offense is also struggling over the last week, which should help Iwakuma. Iwakuma has won three straight starts.
P- Joe Musgrove (vs. Los Angeles Angels): $7,000. Musgrove does a fantastic job of keeping the baseball in the ballpark. The Orioles’ bats have been ice cold and they only seem to score runs on home runs. Hopefully Musgrove can have another great start.
P – Chris Sale (vs. Seattle Mariners): $12,200. In 78 career at bats against Sale, the Mariners’ lineup is batting .205, with 27 strikeouts, and a .254 OBP. Sale leads the majors with 14 wins this season. He also owns a 3.38 ERA, with 104 hits against, 123 strikeouts, and only 26 walks in 125 innings pitched.
P – Mike Fiers (vs. Oakland Althletics): $5,500. This pick scares me a little bit, but in order to afford my stack against Ivan Nova, this was a necessary play. Fiers has been hit or miss this season. He owns a 6-3 record, with a 4.36 ERA 64 strikeouts, and 21 walks in 93 innings pitched. He is playing in a pitcher friendly stadium against a division rival, so I’m hoping he will be on his “A” game.
