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.

Justin Verlander

Justin Verlander comes in excellent form, and also might be a little riled up from yesterday's WWE Summer Slam. But back to Verlander's second half, he has allowed a .248 wOBA and has a 28.8% strikeout rate. His strikeout rate is up 7% from the first half, and he has dropped his hard-contact down to 31% from 37%. Verlander looks strong, with his velocity being around 95-96 over his last ten starts or so. Verlander should continue his stretch of six or more strikeouts per start, as he is up to seven now. He has also only allowed over three runs once since the second half has started. Given the matchup, that should get continue. Over the last 30 days, Chicago ranks 23rd in wOBA and own a 23.6% strikeout rate. This isn't too far off from their season numbers. Verlander is appropriately priced, which I can't say for everyone tonight.
