What you need to know for Monday’s MLB games

By Todd Zola

  • It’s a shortlist of six games on Monday with everything under the spotlight. Games begin at the Great American Ballpark with rookie fireball player Hunter Greene (29.1% listed in ESPN Leagues) walking the Cincinnati Reds against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. Greene’s 29.1% hit rate is impressive but still raw, with control and drive issues driving up walk rates, run totals on his pitch and number of pitches. Greene’s hits are attractive, but the Diamondbacks are one of the most patient offenses in the league with the fourth-highest home run against righthanders. While some look to Greene as a DFS streamer or thrower, consider a DFS stack in Arizona or choose from Josh Rojas (37%), Christian Walker (34%), David Peralta (20%), Alek Thomas (14%) and Pavin Smith (6%) as imaginary filling bats.

  • Those looking to get an early jump into the promotion don’t have much to choose from, but a pair of AL East starters stand out as the fanciful streamers. While a lot of attention has been paid to the upsurge of the Boston Red Sox offensive, the starters were also on the boom, including Michael Washa (34%). Right doesn’t pile on the punches, but he’s only made more than two outing runs at once all season. On Monday, he will face the Angels lineup in the league’s second-highest clip against righthanders, giving Wacha a chance to top his group. Of note, Joe Adele (4%) came back with Hallus with Taylor Ward sidelined due to a hamstring sprain.

  • The Toronto Blue Jays are also playing better ball lately, but they just lost Hyun-Jin Ryu due to forearm strain and elbow inflammation. Ross Stripling (1%) gets a nod to fill the hole. The caveat is that while Stripling has been throwing several innings from the Bullpen, he may not be extended enough to throw the five tires needed to qualify for the win. John Gray (51%) and Cal Quantrell (63%) both cross the 50% mark typically used to identify fantasy banners, but with only six games, the availability is worth a look because they’re in favorable locations.

  • Back in the Red Sox attack, Noah Syndergaard is on the hill for the Angels, so find Boston for a run. Jackie Bradley Jr (1%) missed the weekend on paternity with Garen Doran (1%) to take his place against the righthanders. It’s not clear if Bradley will return on Monday, but they both play for the heist.

  • The Cleveland Guardians are also playing for some rangers early in the week as they host the unskilled Texas Rangers at controlling a running game. Miles Straw (55%) is the main target with Andres Jimenez (25%) and Rosario (35%) also in the mix.

  • One of the best ways to deal with a short list is to use additional promotion points for blood thinners, especially those with a chance of tackling. Topping the list for Monday is Joe Barlow (42%), Mark Melancon (37%), Tony Santillan (1%) and Art Warren (1%).
