Another Monday short slate as we have nine games (and lose Kluber and Lester to an early start).
After Jacob deGrom ($9500) and Hisashi Iwakuma ($7800), there is not very much pitching. deGrom has allowed two or fewer runs in seven straight games while Iwakuma has spun four straight good starts. Arizona is hitting too well for me to consider Lance Lynn ($8200) and Julio Teheran ($6800) has been way too inconsistent.
On the hitting side, A.J. Pollock ($6000) has 11 hits in his past three games. Nelson Cruz ($6200) has to be in your lineup every day (as I have been writing for a couple of weeks now) until his price becomes prohibitive. I have not been on Jose Altuve ($5600) for awhile, but after getting five hits this weekend off of Greinke and Kershaw, I will be using him now.
Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
