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.

Stephen Strasburg

On tonight's slate, there is really only one option that I feel confident in on the mound, and that's Strasburg. With some other elite arms in tough spots (namely Yu Darvish at Houston), Strasburg will face the Braves for the third time this season, and he was sensational in the first two turns against them, totaling 21 strikeouts over 14.2 innings with just 11 hits, 4 ER and 3 walks allowed. Tonight he is a monster favorite at -230 as he is opposed by Mike Foltynewicz. Stras owns a 27.6% K rate on the season, and has allowed a HR/9 of just 0.67, a WHIP of 1.02, and a HardHit of just 27.5%. The Braves have struggled at the plate over the last 14 days, totaling just 58 runs, a .301 team wOBA, and a .135 team ISO. Stras should be the chalk tonight, and for good reason.
