Monday night features an eight-game slate of MLB action. While there are a few high-priced pitchers on the slate worth consideration there are not many values or cheap options worth rostering. So tonight I will supply two Ace options and only one Value play.


David Price (FD-$10,000 / DK-$11,000)

Price is my favorite high-priced pitcher tonight facing his former team the Rays in Tampa. Price always pitched well in Tampa when he was with the Rays and will be facing a team that has the highest strikeout rate (25.5%) against lefties this season. Price is a solid Cash game and GPP option.

Stephen Strasburg (FD-$10,000 / DK-$10,700)

Strasburg has struggled over his last three starts with a 14.66 ERA but still only has a 3.76 SIERA in those starts. He will look to bounce back tonight at home against the Orioles who strikeout 21.8% (9th highest) against righties. I prefer Price for Cash games but will strongly consider pivoting to Strasburg in GPPs where I think he will be lower-owned than Price due to his recent struggles.


Jameson Taillon (FD-$7,500 / DK-$9,100)

Taillon continues to pitch well in his rookie season. He has had seven consecutive starts of six or more innings allowing three run or less for a 2.25 ERA during that span. Taillon doesn’t strikeout a lot of hitters but could get more punchouts tonight against an Astros’ team that has struck out 23.8% (3rd highest) against righties this season. Taillon could be worth Cash game consideration and is an excellent GPP option.


Chad Bettis (FD-$7,000 / DK-$5,200)

I would only consider Bettis on DraftKings due to his low price tag and two-pitcher requirement. He should have some strikeout upside against the Brewers who have the highest strikeout percentage against righties this season at 25.5%. With his low price, you don’t need too much production to have him pay off his salary and open up your lineup for a high priced hitter stack.
