MLB Pitching/MKF Picks for July 14- Zack Attack

Published

on

Sunday’s are enjoyable for me in the DFS world, generally all the games are on the same slate and pitching choices abound. The first Sunday after the All Star Break is no different.

Upper-Tier Pitching

Zack Greinke, Diamondbacks at Cardinals ($9,600 FD, $10,300 DK): Sometimes FD, because they are a one pitcher site, seems to dare you to use a pitcher over another for some reason. That is the case with Greinke today. He seems to cheap and in too good of a spot (STL really struggles against righties, 25th in the league at OPS at .707, second to last at ISO with a pathetic .148) to not use him as your cash pitcher. For pitching purposes, he seems to be in the classic safe, cash-game mode today, with a high floor. Greinke is coming off a great first half. He threw seven shutout innings in each of his past two starts leading into the break.

Jacob deGrom, Mets at Marlins ($10,800 FD, $10,800 DK): Because of his volatility this season, deGrom will likely not be my pitching choice for cash games today. All you have to do is go back to a previous start in Miami, where he gave up six runs and nine hits in only five innings of work, to see the up and down nature of deGrom’s season so far. The Mets wisely gave deGrom, a NL All-Star, a full eight days off between this start and his most recent one. deGrom has one win in his last 10 starts, despite a 3.29 ERA in that span.

Middle-Tier Pitching

Jose Quintana, Pirates at Cubs ($8,000 FD, $7,300 DK): The DK price seems particularly appealing for cash games expecially if you want to use plenty of Coors bats. Pirates fans can hope that their annual second half swoon is not under way, but it probably is. And Quintana is likely going to be a big part of it continuing. Quintana has started to throw more breaking balls in his last two starts, and the results show that has been a wise choice. He has 10 strikeouts and one walk over 13 IP in those pair of outings. That included a seven-inning win over the Pirates on July 4. He is 3-1 with a 2.57 ERA in seven career starts vs. the Bucs.

Homer Bailey, Tigers at Royals ($7,100 FD, $6,800 DK): A possible cash-game choice is you just want to grab as many Coors bats as you can. This pick is about that fact and two others as well. Kauffman Stadium is an extreme pitchers park and the Tigers are really bad against righties. I am not going to blame you to roll out Homer today in your cash lineups.

Bargain Basement Pitching

Sandy Alcantara, Mets at Marlins ($7,600 FD, $6,300 DK): I guess the pricing makes Bailey and Alcantara interchangeable between bargain basement and middle-tier arms but the reasons behind it are the same. The Mets are not a good hitting baseball team and they will play is a park that is great for pitchers. And, if you want to use someone that has had success against an opponent this season so far, Sandy is your guy. May 19th at home against New York: a complete-game shutout with only two hits given up, a single walk and eight strikeouts.

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

I will not blame you if you want to go to Coors and do a Daniel Murphy, Phillip Ervin and Puig trio like this one from Tampa Bay. I love picking on the Orioles pitching staff as a whole. With their starter for today traded to the Red Sox, they will scramble to find another one and will likely ask a terrible bullpen for more innings than they normally would.
