This is a nice, normal-sized six game slate for a Monday. Cleveland is the only game with a minor weather concern. Kershaw is our featured chocie.
Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers at Diamondbacks ($11,000 FD, $10,400 DK): The Dodger southpaw is coming off seven scoreless, brilliant innings against the Giants. Because of the Dodgers concern about his workload and their hope of going deep into the playoffs, Kershaw is getting an extra day of rest for this start. For his career at Chase Field he’s 6-8 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.202 WHIP. A possible cash-game option, we will need to see if we can find some value bats to be able to afford his lofty price tag.

Zack Greinke, Dodgers at Diamondbacks ($9,100 FD, $8,400 DK): We do not have to look far for the next pitcher I like. Greinke’s worst start of the year was his first one, and that game happened to be against these same Dodgers in Chavez Ravine. You have to wonder if a change of scenery and how well Greinke has pitched since that start can result in a different outcome for this former Cy Young Award winner. This will be only the second time in his career that he has faced Kershaw. So far in June, Greinke is 2-1 with a 3.33 ERA. Greinke is a borderline cash play for me tonight but will make his way into a GPP lineup if I decide to enter those type of tournaments.

Eduardo Rodriguez, White Sox at Red Sox ($8,400 FD, $8,700 DK): The lefty has been solid but not spectacular as of late, going seven innings in both of his last two starts. Rodriguez is 3-1 with a 4.00 ERA in six starts at Fenway this season. In his career against the White Sox, he is 2-0 with a 2.66 ERA in four starts, so both recent and history against the White Sox favors a good game from him in this spot. With the savings he offers me, he could be my cash-game option.

CC Sabathia, Blue Jays at Yankees ($6,500 FD, $7,100 DK): For a starting pitcher who very likely be the largest favorite on the slate, his price point is simply fantastic. CC just might be my cash-game pitcher on this six game slate. In his last start against the Rays, Sabathia reached a milestone with his 250th career victory. He was effective in that start, giving up only one run and three hits over six innings. This will be his first of likely multiple starts against the Blue Jays this season.
