Dylan’s MLB strategy for Tuesday, June 1st.

Top Pitchers:

Tyler Glassnow ($9,800)

Glassnow is my favorite pitcher on the slate. His strikeout rate is over 36% and he has the highest upside on the slate in my opinion.

Sonny Gray ($8,900)

With Bryce Harper out, I’m really liking Sonny Gray in this spot. Gray has a 31.5% K rate against righties since the start of last season. PHI should have 5-6 righties. Love Sonny Gray.

Matthew Boyd ($6,500)

Matt Boyd is interesting to me. Not in the best matchup, but his price is great. Ownership will probably dictate whether I play Boyd or not.

Luis Garcia ($8,300)

Garcia has been playing great lately. His strikeout rate is up to 29% and he shouldn’t be too popular. He’s a little risky, but has good upside for GPP’s.

Brady Singer ($6,900)

I think Singer is a fine option if you need a cheaper SP2. KC are massive favorites so he should get a win, and he’s up against a terrible Pittsburgh offense.

Top Bats/Stacks:

Minnesota bats vs Baltimore

I’m loving Nelson Cruz, Josh Donaldson and Miguel Sano in this spot against Bruce Zimmerman. All 3 are underpriced and have a good matchup.

Miami bats vs Toronto

With Robbie Ray setting up to be a chalk pitching option, I don’t mind a MIA bats stack to directly pivot in tournaments. Starling Marte, Garrett Cooper and Jesus Aguilar would be my favorite hitters for that stack.

Avisail Garcia vs Milwaukee

Not interested in a stack here, but I do like Garcia as a one off hitter against Milwaukee.

San Diego bats vs Chicago

Padres bats are always a viable stack and that’s no different in this spot against the Cubs. Tatus Jr. and Machado are my favorites and then you can save some salary with Tommy Pham and/or Wil Myers.

Javier Baez vs San Diego

A lot of interest in Baes at $4,600 here. He’s always a great option and he’s coming off a 2 home run game.

Texas bats vs Colorado

Texas is going to be the chalkiest stack on the slate today. Adolis Garcia, Joey Gallo, Willie Calhoun and Nate Lowe are all good options in a great spot for this stack and will be highly owned.

Bargain Bin:

DJ Stewart ($2,600)

I like chasing a homerun with a cheap bat here in DJ Stewart. Michael Pineda tends to give up a home run or two in seemingly every start.

Josh Harrison ($3,000)

I think Josh Harrison is a fine value against ATL. Only $3k and you can play him at 2B or OF.

Carlos Santana ($3,900)

Santana is a good value bat against Pittsburgh here. He’s a little too cheap and KC should be able to have their way with Wil Crowe.
