Above is an example of my MLB Core Plays for the 4/27 slate

Top Pitchers

Blake Snell

There’s no doubt who will be the chalkiest pitcher on the slate tonight, and that is Blake Snell — coming off four straight starts with 10+ strikeouts. I was critical of Snell early this season, but he has rounded the corner for the Padres and seemingly returned to his Cy Young form over the last two months. Walks will always be an issue with someone that chases K’s the way Snell does, but we simply can’t ignore the form he’s been in. He has a sub-2.00 SIERA over the last 30 days, along with a monster 46% strikeout rate and 36% CSW%. The match-up is pretty neutral against the Angels, but there’s just 0 reason for him to be below $10,000 given the run he has been on. He isn’t going to strike out 10+ batters every start, but given his price and recent form he will be massively-owned on Monday evening.

Tyler Wells

Joe Ryan will certainly be owned against the Royals as well, but another pitcher I love is Tyler Wells especially at this price tag. Wells has also been very good for the O’s over the last month sporting a 3.67 SIERA along with 29% strikeouts and a 30% CSW%. The match-up with New York is not one I’m afraid to target — their projected lineup tonight owns a .296 wOBA against right-handed pitching and a 23% strikeout rate. Wells is firmly in play as an SP2 in all formats tonight, and will likely provide at least some differentiation from the chalky Ryan/Snell combo most users will click.

Building Blocks

Gunnar Henderson

I’m not sure how high own Henderson and the O’s will be against a pitcher that just made history with a perfect game, but I am going to be interested in them tonight. German has been more reverse-splits this season, but I love the spot for Henderson. For starters, he seems to have found his swing with a monster 61% hard-hit rate over the last 14 days — the seventh-best number in the league. He also has also been one of the O’s best hitters against right-handed pitching including a team-high .279 ISO in the split. He is expected to lead-off tonight, and can be used in all formats on both sites.

Jack Suwinski

Suwinski will be one of the chalkier mid-tier plays on Monday, matched up against Michael Grove. Suwinski has been a monster against right-handed pitching for the Pirates this season, posting a team-high .394 wOBA and a .327 ISO. Grove has struggled against left-handed hitters this season, and really profiles as a strong spot for Suwinski and the rest of the Pirates lefties. To top it off, he’s been locked in at the plate with an 18% barrel rate over the last 14 days — ranking 13th in all of baseball.
