Pitcher Rankings

Cash Games
1. Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw has just been very dominant since after the All-Star break and I don’t think he is slowing down tonight. Kershaw has an ERA OF 0.00 since the All-Star break and opponents are hitting .099 against him during that stretch.

2. Jacob deGrom

deGrom is another great option on the hill and is cheaper than Kershaw. Jacob will be facing the Rays who rank 4th in strike outs this season. Jacob has an ERA of 1.83 since the All-Star break and holding opponents to a .159 AVG.

3. Jose Fernandez

Fernandez has looked great since returning from Tommy John surgery with an ERA of 2.13. He is always a great option with his high strike out potential. He will be facing the Braves tonight and has held them to a .162 AVG in his career.

4. Dallas Keuchal

Keuchal will be facing an Oakland team that has been ice cold. He will have a tough time picking up the win facing Sonny Gray, but has the potential to have a great outing. In the Athletics last 14 games, they are hitting .202 as a team with a OBP of .254.

GPP
1. Daniel Norris

Norris will be facing Joe Kelly and the Red Sox which is why he is one of my GPP plays of the day. Norris looked terrific in his debut, pitching 7 1/3 innings and only allowing one run against Baltimore. Norris could see some nice run support, because Kelly has an ERA over 5.00 on the road.

2. Kevin Gausman

Gausman has looked great in his last three outings with a 2.61 ERA . Gausman will be taking on the Angels who are only hitting .210 in there last 14 games. Gausman could have another nice outing tonight.

3. John Danks

Danks will be facing the Royals on the road today. Danks is definitely one of the riskiest guys out there, but the numbers are in his favor. The Royals are hitting .185 against Danks in over 200 at bats. Not a single player on that Royals roster is hitting over .300 against Danks! He could have a nice outing tonight and surprise a lot of folks.
