FanCave Pitching Breakdown– 6/4/18

Tonight is a 4 game slate, this is not an ideal cash slate so I will only be writing about my top GPP pitchers.

Clayton Richard- Richard in his last 23 innings at home he has 23 K’s, 3 quality starts, 7 earned, and an average of 45 FD points and 25.46 DK points. The last six left-handed  pitchers the Braves have faced were Gio Gonzalez, Jason Vargas, Steven Matz, Eduardo Rodriquez, PJ Conlon, and Drew Pomeranz, and four of these six pitchers have pitched extremely well in their starts against the Braves. Gio, Vargas, Matz, and Rodriquez combined for 20.2 innings, 5 earned runs allowed, 15 hits allowed, and 20 strikeouts. Richard is my top GPP pitcher tonight. Especially at his cheap price on both sites.

Danny Duffy- In his last two starts Duffy has looked like he’s back to being the pitcher we expected him to be. In 13.2 innings he allowed 8 hits, 2 earned runs, and 9 strikeouts over those two starts, and he has put up an average of 38 FD points, and 20.2 DK points. This season the Angels are batting .223 vs lefties with 115 K’s and only 111 hits. Duffy is my second favorite GPP pitcher, but I will play probably only play him if Perez is catching him.

Zach Godley is getting a lot of love around the industry tonight because his matchup against the Giants. However, he is not on my radar at all, I am actually probably going to stack against him. Godley is 2-5 with a 5.81 ERA, .286 baa on the road. Brandon Crawford is also hitting .408 against right handed pitchers in his last 25 games.

Another name getting some love in the industry is Domingo German, but in his last 3 starts he has pitched 14.1 innings and has allowed 15 earned runs. I can understand the love, but the Tigers bats have been hot, and German has been struggling with walks lately. I might warm up a little more to the idea of pitching German after I see how game one of the double-header goes.
