One Day Fantasy Baseball One Day Fantasy Baseball

Each day of the MLB season will bring us some major price differences among starting pitchers on all sites. These price discrepancies and the site's roster differences can alter the way we use pitchers on each site, as well as how the field of opponents will use them. Listed below are five of today's top pitchers, each with their salary listed as well as the cafe value that takes into account both the total salary cap on the site and points-per-dollar. We've also provided some betting info for you reference. The higher the cafe value, the better the points-per-dollar play is.

Matt Shoemaker

For the third night in a row I will be looking to use an Angels pitcher in all formats. Jesse Chavez held it down the first night, followed by J.C. Ramirez. This time we have Matt Shoemaker, who is coming off of an excellent start against Detroit. Shoemaker has been a bit up and down in terms of his fantasy production, but really his two big blowups came against Seattle and Houston. Other than that he has been solid. Shoemaker's only real issue is the home runs and walks. He has a 1.84 HR/9 and a 10.3% walk rate. Given Chicago has a bottom five wOBA and ISO against right-handed pitching, I am not all that worried. Their Hard% against righties is also at a league low. Chicago strikes out a fair amount, sitting over 23%. Shoemaker's upside is there for tournaments, and I will be willing to roll him out in cash games. He has a 10.7 SwStr% and a 22.2% strikeout rate. Shoemaker is a flyball pitcher, but pitching in Los Angeles benefits him. Once again Chicago has another run total below four, and are severe road dogs.
