Summary

Valdez's season-long strikeout numbers aren't stellar -- 21.9% strikeout rate -- but Seattle helps in that department as the M's have the 10th-highest strikeout rate (23.7%) over the last month. The Tigers' 4.04 implied total isn't ideal, but I think Matz's strikeout ability gives him a top-of-the-slate ceiling today.I want to hit on Carlos Hernandez ($7,100) real quick as a value option. Now he's taking on a Chicago Cubs offense that is at the other end of the spectrum -- one that has the highest strikeout rate over the last 30 days (28.4%). Alvarez has put up a .367 wOBA and 37.3% hard-hit rate in the split in 2021. Brantley's production against left-handers isn't as juicy, but he is getting crushed by a .269 BABIP in same-sided matchups despite a hard-hit rate (37.2%) that is significantly better than his hard-hit rate against righties (33.3%). Garcia has punked southpaws for a .442 wOBA and 43.3% hard-hit rate. On the other hand, Kolten Wong ($3,300) has a better wOBA against southpaws (.360) than he does right-handers (.339) and is projected to lead off.
