Cardinals-Reds postponed due to inclement weather Tuesday

Monday's matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds has been postponed due to inclement weather and will rescheduled as a split doubleheader tomorrow. The first game will be the rescheduled contest from tonight and will begin at 1:10pm ET, while Game 2 will be at 6:40pm ET.

Weather dictated top pitching spot

Sonny Gray was shelled for six runs by the Cardinals last time out as he walked three and struck out just one of the 10 batters he faced. The 11.2 SwStr% still does not fully support a 31.6 K% and we’ve seen that strikeout rate drop to a more reasonable 25.6% over the last 30 days. But now his walk rate is up to 10.2% as well, while the 44.5 GB% is the first time he’s ever had a rate below 50%. That’s fine if he’s sacrificing ground balls for strikeouts, but he didn’t have to do so last year. A 3.95 xERA that accounts for his 86.9 mph EV and 4.0% Barrels/BBE is still his worst estimator, so it’s not as if he’s not pitching well, but his 2.87 ERA last year came with a .255 BABIP and 79.7 LOB%, so perhaps a bit of regression should not be unexpected. Gray will also be working with a new catcher tonight and face a Cubs’ offense with a 102 wRC+ and 20.5 HR/FB vs RHP. All of that being said, it’s another pitcher friendly night at Wrigley, which should suppress some of that power, while the Cubs also have strikeout tendencies against RHP (26.3%). With Gerrit Cole having weather concerns tonight (and some hard contact issues of his own), Gray may be the top pitcher on the board tonight with a price tag of $10.1K on FanDuel.

The GPP Swerve

While his strikeout ability still showcases his upside, we can't hide the fact that Gerrit Cole has shown several alarming trends this season, primarily in the form of a 43% hard contact rate, high average exit velocity off opponents' bats, a 10.2% barrel rate allowed, and 13 home runs in nine starts. I won't fade him entirely in GPP's tonight, but don't be afraid to pivot to other options. Sonny Gray is my favorite, as he will be under-owned after a bad start his last time out. The Cubs can be beaten by good pitching, especially in the cool weather environment that now exists in Chicago. Gray has plenty of upside with a 3.15 xFIP and a 31.6% strikeout rate this year, and I love him as a tournament option on this slate.

The Brewers have a 67 wRC+ and 27.6 K% vs RHP this year

Sonny Gray has an 11.5 SwStr% that does not really justify his 34.9 K% this season, but he’s still done quality work, even if his strikeout rate drops five or so points. His 3.19 SIERA and 3.63 xERA are his only estimators above three. Considering the matchup, he may be the top pitcher on the slate. The Brewers may not necessarily be the lineup his strikeout rate regresses against as they own a 27.6% rate against RHP with a 67 wRC+. Keston Huira and Christian Yelich are the only batters in the lineup above even a 90 wRC+ overall this year. A $10.2K price tag makes Gray the third most expensive pitcher on FanDuel, but potentially the top value and perhaps even the top overall arm in this inviting matchup.

More Upside In His New Home

During his career with the A's, Sonny Gray was a constant disappointment despite his immense talent, and he posted merely a league average strikeout rate of around 21%. However, his career has taken off with the Reds, as he had a strikeout rate of almost 29% last year. That has jumped even higher so far in 2020. His ascension with a new team almost parallels the rise that we saw from Gerrit Cole when he went from the Pirates to the Astros. Sometimes, all it takes is a change of scenery. Gray matches up well with a depleted Cardinals lineup and is one of the top options on the slate in all formats.

Side With The Matchup

We've got two aces close together with Stephen Strasburg and Sonny Gray. Strasburg is the better overall pitcher here, but they have very similar strikeout ability and Gray comes with the better matchup and a bit of a savings. The strikeouts have remained steadily in the 30% range for Gray and he has thrown over 100 pitches in four of his last five starts, giving him some added cushion. The control is always a bit of a wildcard, but the added edge from the high strikeouts in the Mariners lineup outweighs that risk here.

Sonny Gray has the top strikeout rate on the board (29.2%) by nearly six points

Sonny Gray is the unquestioned top pitcher on the board in the most pitcher friendly park (though most environments lean negative tonight), which makes the biggest questions ones of cost and ownership. It’s not just that Gray tops the board with a 29.2 K%, it’s that the only other pitcher that’s within six points (Pablo Lopez (23.3%) hasn’t pitched in a major league game in quite a while. His 2.92 ERA may be a run below his 3.90 SIERA, but no other pitcher on the board is below a four SIERA. His 3.09 DRA is also best on the board and only one of three below four. He also tops the board with a 52.4 GB% and .282 xwOBA. Not only is the park extremely favorable, but the Marlins have a 76 wRC+ and 18.4 K-BB% vs RHP this year. Their 11 HR/FB against righties is the worst split on the board. As for cost, Gray costs more than $11K, when only one other pitcher costs more than $9.1K on either site. It may be worth bypassing him on FanDuel in favor of potentially more volatile arms, at least on GPPs. On DraftKings, an $11.2K price tag may not make him such a great value, but the ability to pair him with someone like Joe Musgrove for $6K makes him a lot easier to fit into lineups. It’s also likely to place him in near half of tonight’s lineups (Projected Ownership is available to premium subscribers).

The Only Good Option

This seems like a high price for Sonny Gray, but the gap between him and every other pitcher on this slate is too big to ignore. Gray not only has an ideal matchup against a Marlins team with high strikeouts and ground balls, but his 29.2% K rate is heads and shoulders above the rest of tonight's slate. He's gotten stronger as the season moves on, up to a 32.1% K rate since the All-Star Break and has back-to-back 10 K games against better teams than what he faces tonight.
