Jacob deGrom: It's deGrom day! Rejoice as your SP1 is locked in on both sites. Don't try to get cute and overthink this play despite the overwhelming ownership, just lock and load. Last time out deGrom needed just 70 pitches to work through 5 innings allowing just 1 hit and striking out 7 hitters. This time deGrom should be clear to work deeper into the game and rack up the punch outs. The Phillies strike out a lot (25.1%) and are a bottom ten offense this season against RHP (.143 ISO, .295 wOBA, 86 wRC+), further highlighting the quality of the matchup for the best pitcher in baseball. deGoat has an insane 46.8% strikeout rate on the season to go with a 4% walk rate. deGrom is in the top 1% of baseball in a number of categories showcasing just how phenomenal a season he has had, (.131 xBA, .226 xSLG, .156 wOBA) w/ 117 strikeouts over 72 innings just to drive it home. POWN% hovering just under 50 on both sites this afternoon, but should continue to climb loser to lock.
Lance Lynn: The White Sox veteran right-hander was roughed up last time out allowing 6 runs on 8 hits over just 4 innings last time out, but here's hoping that helps keep ownership down for this matchup against the Mariners this afternoon. His teammate Carlos Rodon let us down last night, but Seattle strikes out at a 26% clip vs. RHP this season to go with just a .161 ISO and 91 wRC+. Lynn will look to get back on track this afternoon adding to his win total in what's been a good season to this point for the veteran right-hander with a 28.1% K rate and .251 wOBA against him. Lynn is the second chalkiest pitcher this afternoon hovering over 35 POWN%.
