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.
On a semi short main slate of nine games tonight, Fernandez sticks out as the clear cut #1 option. For cash games on multi pitcher sites, I will be pairing Jose with a lower priced pitcher and trying to spend up on hitters where I can. On the season, Fernandez has a ridiculous K rate of 36.4%, and he's been really racking them up lately with 82 over his last nine starts. The Giants don't strike out much, but they're ranked 27th in ISO against right handed pitching, which was surprising to me. The Giants also have the lowest team runs total on the entire slate at 2.5. In a showdown against Giants ace Johnny Cueto, I like the Marlins and Fernandez to come out on top.
