While you don't really have to pay up at pitcher on this slate, you certainly can. Aaron Nola has been great recently and has plenty of upside in a match-up with the Mets. The Mets aren't a great match-up, but they aren't horrible either. They're ranked 8in baseball in terms of wOBA, but strikeout over 20% of the time. Aaron Nola on the other side, is very consistent. He's held righties to a .358 wOBA and lefties to a .305. He strikes out nearly 9 batters per 9 innings and should be able to limit the damage at home. This slate doesn't have a lot of pitching, so Nola definitely has some safety for his price. I don't think he's a must, but I don't hate it either.
We touched on Carlos Martinez and Hyun-Jin Ryu in the main picks article and they both remain top plays on the slate. They are in solid match-ups and should be a somewhat solid bet to come through. Moving down the pricing range a little bit, you run into Dylan Bundy. There's an argument to be made that Bundy is right with Martinez and Ryu. His upside is definitely there, if not higher. Bundy is one of the best prospects in baseball and is expected to be an ace before it's all said and done. The Oakland A's aren't s team you necessarily look to target, but you certainly don't run away. They are average at best against righties and strikeout nearly 22% of the time. Bundy may be a bit risky, but the upside is there and the price is cheap.
