The MLB evening slate consists of five games on the diamond. It is an odd slate where I will consider stacking practically every team even those going against my top pitcher recommendations (just not in the same lineup). I think you will want to pay up for pitching on this slate as it gets ugly really fast, so my list of hitters is more of the value variety. That said there are a bunch of high-priced hitters to consider you want to try to roll the dice on the mound in GPPs. This will be another freebie with very little commentary on my picks.

Let’s mow down the competition 3 Up and 3 Down…
Patrick Corbin (FD-$10,900 / DK-$10,300)
While Corbin grades out the best of all of the pitchers on the slate, I’m not against stacking the Padres against him in a GPP lineup. That said, Corbin is my pitcher of choice for Cash games with some consideration to save some bucks with my Value option on FanDuel. Corbin will pitch in San Diego against a Padres team that has the 2nd highest strikeout rate (27.3%) against lefties this season.
Jose Berrios (FD-$9,300 / DK-$9,700)
I prefer Berrios over his opponent, Trevor Bauer, on Thursday night. While I don’t want to use a right-handed pitcher against the Twins top offense, the Indians can still be shut down by a strong pitcher. The Indians rank 25th in wOBA, 24th in wRC+ against righties this season. Consider Berrios in Cash games on FanDuel to save some money compared to Corbin and also look to pair Berrios with Corbin in Cash games on DraftKings.
J.A. Happ (FD-$8,600 / DK-$7,800)
Happ will return to Toronto to face his former club on Thursday. While Happ hasn’t had much success this season, he is a huge road favorite on Thursday. He always seemed to pitch well when he called Toronto his home and I expect him to recapture some of that magic on Thursday night. Give him a shot in GPPs.
Gleyber Torres (FD-$3,900 / DK-$4,600)
Asdrubal Cabrera (FD-$ / DK-$4,300)
Aaron Hicks (FD-$3,500 / DK-$4,100)
Ronald Guzman (FD-$ / DK-$4,100)
Delino DeShields Jr. (FD-$2,500 / DK-$4,000)
Khris Davis (FD-$3,600 / DK-$3,900)
Shohei Ohtani (FD-$3,500 / DK-$3,900)
Lourdes Gurriel (FD-$2,800 / DK-$3,900)
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (FD-$3,000 / DK-$3,800)
Marcus Semien (FD-$3,100 / DK-$3,600)
Stephen Piscotty (FD-$3,000 / DK-$3,500)
Kendry Morales (FD-$2,700 / DK-$2,700)
