We looked at Max Scherzer and Jon Lester in the main picks article. Scherzer is still the clear cut top option in cash games and Lester remains a viable pivot. We'll now move down a little bit with Doug Fister and Jack Flaherty. Focusing on Fister, he's a bit tough to figure out. He's basically been a completely different pitcher over his last 4. He is throwing the changeup 3x more, his fastball less, and walking fewer batters. He's contained both lefties and righties, though I don't think we can accept this is just how it's going to be. He has definitely been a bit lucky recently, and we can expect some rough starts in the future. I'm just not sure the Athletics are going to do much damage. They have some bats in Khris Davis and Matt Joyce with power against righties, but the team strikes out close to 23% of the time and has held a .317 wOBA against righties. Fister is certainly a bit riskier than the more expensive options, but he'll also give you a few more expensive bats to make up the difference. I'll personally stay with Scherzer in cash games, but I do see the reasoning for going with Fister and 2 expensive offenses.
If you want to get really cheap, Jack Flaherty is the only guy I have any confidence in. He may not have anywhere near the upside of ScherzerLester or even Fister, but he should go a solid 5 or 6 innings and get the win. Jack Flaherty is just another one of many effective arms the Cardinals have develeoped through the system. He has been great agaisnt both sides of the plate and there isn't much to point to in terms of struggles. He faces a Red team at home in Busch Stadium that has had a lot of trouble against righties. They obviousl have some power in there, but a team .309 wOBA since the break is nothing to be proud of. Flaherty, like I said, won't wow you, but the offenses he lets you get exposure to very well may.
