Top Play – Nate Lowe

It’s a loaded Tuesday night MLB slate, which means several high-end pitchers to spend-up on. Per usual, I’ll be searching for value at the INF/OF spots and I believe we can find that in the form of Nate Lowe against Jordan Lyles. Lyles has been horrific against left-handed hitters over the last few seasons, allowing a .363 wOBA and a .250 ISO. This entire Rangers lineup has underwhelmed this season, but power is a big factor when plugging in value plays and Lowe certainly provides that. Despite the rough 2022 season, his 23% line-drive rate and .450 expected wOBA against righties are some of the best numbers on this roster. Overall, this is a great spot for the Rangers offense and Lowe is simply too cheap tonight.

Top Pitcher – Corbin Burnes

Tuesday’s attention is focused on the return of Jacob deGrom for the New York Mets. Regardless of how awesome his return will be, we cannot project him to go deep into the game after not even eclipsing 70 pitches in his rehab assignment. With that being said, Burnes becomes our priority play matched up with the Pittsburgh Pirates. We know that Burnes is a dominant strikeout pitcher, and this is one of the best possible match-ups he could draw. Pittsburgh’s projected lineup carries a combined .282 wOBA into tonight’s game. Burnes has also shredded this team in his career, with a 26% strikeout rate against their active roster. Burnes is installed as a big -270 favorite tonight, and is my clear number one play in all formats.

Top Super-Flex Play – Spencer Strider

Strider is the number two spend-up for me tonight, matched up vs the Phillies. He went six strong innings striking out six in his last start against them, and continues to be the favorite for the NL Rookie of the Year award in my opinion. This Phillies lineup is struggling right now, and outside of Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins there are some bad players at the bottom of this order. Their projected lineup sports a sub-.290 wOBA against right-handed pitching…and I think Strider could have a really big start here. He should be priced over $10K due to his strikeout upside, and I will be buying into him tonight.
