Congrats to you if you had Michael Pineda (26 points), Danny Salazar (21 points), or Garrett Richards (19.66 points) yesterday. But that was yesterday and none of that matters for Monday at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.
Only nine MLB games are on the slate for Monday. We are going to look at Gerrit Cole ($8700) against the low-scoring Phillies as the most obvious pitching choice. None of the pitchers in the next wave really thrill me, so the choice is going to be Alex Colome ($4000). Colome has shown well in his first two starts this season at Boston and at Baltimore and is a high-strikeout pitcher.
Going with Colome will allow some room for higher-priced offensive players including the red-hot Bryce Harper ($5600) and Andrew McCutchen ($4800). I know that McCutchen has underperformed so far this season, but he is showing signs of a hitting run.
Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
