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.

Chris Sale

Even with some notable names on the slate, like Jacob deGrom, Chris Sale is in a league of his own right now. He has a career high 38.8% strikeout rate going this season, which leads the league. His walk rate is below 7%, and as you can imagine home runs are hard to come by (0.61 HR/9). Sale cut back on his slider and changeup usage last season, which led to more contact and fewer strikeouts. His slider usage this season is 4% higher than his career norm, and his changeup usage is 5% higher. The elite off-speed pitches being thrown has given Sale a huge edge this year. This is a juicy matchup for Sale as Oakland ranks 24rd in wOBA against southpaws, with a 23.9% strikeout rate. Sale has seven straight starts with double-digit strikeouts, and there are great odds to see him get eight this evening. Sale is a premium cash game play, and even with higher ownership, the GPP upside is tremendous even at the price. I will be fitting him into most lineups tonight, even with a lot of pivots to make.
