P – Marcus Stroman (vs. Baltimore Orioles): $7,700. I wouldn’t typically suggest starting a pitcher against the Orioles offense, but I think Stroman can handle them.
The pitching match-ups are brutal on Tuesday, so Stroman could be a steal at such a low price point. I’m taking a huge risk here, but I’m hoping the lower price point on Stroman will allow me to afford some elite bats to make up for the difference.
P – Ervin Santana (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,000. Santana doesn’t have much history against the Brewers, but can they really be that difficult to get out? They are currently the 26th best offense in baseball and Santana is a crafty veteran.
I’m strictly playing a match-up here and hoping Santana can take care of a less than mediocre offense.

The fortunes of the Orioles have all come based on the heels of 2 nice trades and a 3rd one also tilting the scales in their favor.
These deals gave the club a bonafide Starting Pitcher, a Gold Glove and 30 HRs a year hitting Adam Jones, a 50+ HR guy in 2013 with Chris Davis, and a flamethrowing arm out of the Bullpen with Hunter.
Bedard was lackluster in Seattle briefly, and Koji Uehara wasn’t good in Texas, like he was in Baltimore or now Boston.
