Tonight’s slate is filled with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th man on the rotation. The most expensive option tonight isJames Shields for 8500.00. There will be plenty of room in the salary cap today to play premium hitters.

Cash game pitchers:

Jake Odorizzi (8100) – He can always be counted on to post a solid number of strike outs per outing. He has averaged over a K per inning over the 2nd half of the season.

Francisco Liriano (7100) – He should easily hit value tonight at this price point. He strikes out over a batter per inning, and should get the win in a lowing scoring game against STL. He has an xFIP of around 2.90 over the 2nd half. His GB% during the last 7 games has been almost 60%.

GPP play:

Roenis Elias (6700) – He will be in my lineup tonight. He posts the highest K/9 of any pitcher starting tonight since the all-star break. He has an ERA of 2.10 during that time. His xFIP of 3.94 suggest it may be time for him to regress, but I think he will be fine tonight against the Rangers.

I like the San Francisco and the Seattle stack tonight.
