Jon Gray ($8,000)- If you guys read my season long article you would know I’m extremely high I am on this guy, and he didn’t disappoint me too much on opening day. In his career vs the Padres Gray owned a 4-2 record, 2.40 ERA, .209 baa, and 12.3 K/9. In his career at SD he owns a 2-2 record, 3.21 ERA, .233 baa, and 12.9 K/9. After the Padres offensive explosion last night Jon Gray might be lower owned than he should be and he is my favorite pitcher on this slate for Cash and GPP’s.
Carlos Martinez ($7,900)- Another guy this season that I was very high on. Martinez disappointed on opening day, but after seeing how Flaherty did last night I really like this spot for C-Mart. In his career vs the Brewers he owns a 5-4 record, 2.18 ERA, .236 baa, and 9.9 K/9. In Milwaukee he owns a career 3-4 record, 2.69 ERA, .233 baa, and 12.1 K/9. I could see Martinez carrying higher ownership tonight, and with his control issues he had on opening day I am reserving him for GPP’s only.
Carson Fulmer ($5,800)- The young hard throwing right hander supposedly has upped his fastball velocity in this spring. His career stats are not the best, but he has some crazy upside against this free swinging Blue Jays team. Last season Fulmer was also much better away where he posted a 1-0 record, 1.59 ERA, .175 baa, but a 5.9 K/9. The Blue Jays went off for 14 runs last night, and that should make Fulmer have #criminalownership. I would only recommend Fulmer if you are in need of some serious salary relief and want 3% or less ownership.
