EARLY PITCHING

PICK AN ACE

We’ve got two of the best pitchers in baseball on the mound for this early slate. Or, more accurately, each site has one ace on each of their early slates.

Jacob deGrom at Braves
Chris Sale at Orioles

    Hi Dave thanks for breaking down the early slate. Do you have any interest in using the Mets as one offs? I dont know much about Soroka and the Mets are not a great hitting team but they’re super cheap on FD

    If Soroka were definitely healthy, I would not want Mets against him, he’s a great pitcher. But, he’s coming off the DL from a shoulder injury and threw just four innings in his last rehab start, so given some of these Mets salaries, and the likelihood of at least 3-4 innings, is not more of the Atlanta bullpen, yeah, I’d be willing to look at guys like Bruce and Conforto at those bargain basement salaries.

    There simply isn’t a good one. I would probably go with Russell Martin for $2,900 on DK. It’s a terribly ugly position.
