MLB Pitching Primer: Wednesday, April 4th
Everything in the sport of baseball comes down to the hitter-versus-pitcher matchup – which makes pitching the most important element of MLB DFS play. Without an understanding of the best pitching plays on the day, your DFS efforts will be sunk! Each day, the Pitching Primer will provide you with some of the top pitching plays on the day – taking a close look at the “why” behind these picks, and helping you to identify pitchers others might overlook.

We have a great early slate for pitching, but the sites have broken things down slightly differently. FD and DK are going with a six-game slate that starts at 1:05 PM EST, while FDRFT has a five-game slate that starts at 12:10 PM EST. Another way to put it from a pitching perspective is: no Max Scherzer available on FD/DK and no Corey Kluber available on FDRFT.
And when I say we have a great slate of pitching, that might actually be underselling it a bit. Take a look at the 2017 numbers for all of these guys.
