We have a 10-game slate on Monday with several intriguing pitching choices and a few must-have hitting options.
Gerrit Cole ($9600) is the most expensive pitching option on the board. I have my concerns with Cole as he has not gone beyond six innings in his past three starts. I am going to move down to the Indians' Danny Salazar ($7900), who has six straight strong starts. Carlos Rodon ($5300) dominated the Angels last week with 22 points. He gets those same Angels again. Rodon certainly has his risk, as he sandwiched a 22 and 19.66 around 3.66 and -1.00.
Salazar and Rodon will allow me to take Nelson Cruz ($6200) versus a lefty and Chris Davis ($5000) versus a righty. Both are must-own hitters as far as I am concerned. They continue to pound home run after home run.
Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
