CheeseIsGood's Million Dollar Musings: Wednesday, June 16th

Happy Wednesday! We’ve got a split slate today with an early six-game slate starting at 2:10pm ET, followed by the eight-game main slate at 7:07pm. I’ll touch on both slates starting with an overview of this early slate.

Early Slate Pitching

We’ve got some strong pitching options in these first six games, with at least nine viable options and a non-crazy cheap punt option on DK. I’ve got a clear top two, with a big ole second tier containing everyone else that I’ll put into a couple different buckets. This is what it looks like:

Two Up Top

Lucas Giolito vs Rays
Freddy Peralta vs Reds

Strikeout Upside

Tyler Mahle at Brewers
Blake Snell at Rockies
Tarik Skubal at Royals
Griffin Canning at A’s

A Little Better In Real Life

Ryan Yarbrough at White Sox
Cole Irvin vs Angels
Brady Singer vs Tigers
