What you need to know for Tuesday’s MLB Games

By Derek Carty

  • After the top tier of elite pitchers that are near universally-rostered, Jose Quintana (29% rostered in ESPN leagues) is the top pitcher on the board today. He’s been terrific this season and gets a soft matchup against a weak Nationals offense, at home in pitcher-friendly Busch Stadium.

  • If you’re a Brandon Woodruff manager, today is a day to keep him on your bench. As great as he is, he goes into Coors Field today… and it’s 95 degrees. He projects for a 4.77 ERA and a 1.34 FIP, which isn’t usable in any format.

  • On the other side of that game, the Milwaukee Brewers are the clear top offense to stream from today. They are the only team THE BAT X projects for over 6 runs, and their projected total approaches 7 against Chad Kuhl. Rowdy Tellez (66%), Kolten Wong (65%), Andrew McCutchen (52%), Luis Urias (47%), Omar Narvaez (23%), Keston Hiura (2%), and Jace Peterson (2%) are all in play (depending on who is in the lineup).

  • Particularly for those looking for stolen bases, the Cubs against Justin Dunn also offer a terrific opportunity. Dunn is one of the absolute weakest pitchers in baseball and one of the easiest to steal off of once you reach base. Nico Hoerner (40%) and Rafael Ortega (1%) in particular project quite well for a steal today.
