Line Up Rational: I like Carrasco and Cortes today against the free swinging line ups of the Mariners and White Sox. Sure, it’s a warm but both pitchers have good off speed stuff and that deception should keep both line ups in check.
Rizzo against a fastball pitcher like Kopech is too good a match up to pass up. Especially at a park like Guaranteed Rate Field. Schoop has struggled this season but I like the match up against his former team. The Orioles starting rotation has struggled nightly thus far this season. Anderson is hot if late despite the match up against Cortes.
I really wanted Burton against McKenzie so I overspent for him and went with two cheaper options with upside in Almora and Siri. Buxton is averaging 11.2 points per contest and can get you points in a variety of ways.
