Just over half the teams are playing Monday night, but there are a few solid starting pitchers worth a look at. Lester, Price, Strasburg, and Carrasco lead the way and you really can’t afford two of them if you want any kind of a lineup. We’ll take Lester mainly because of who they are playing. The Padres did score nine runs on Sunday, but Lester and the Cubs should easily pick up the win tonight. Our bargain pitcher is Zack Godley of Arizona who has put together back-to-back solid outings and will get the Braves at home. We’re taking a Seattle Mariners stack against the Yankees’ Michael Pineda tonight. Pineda used to pitch for Seattle, so they know him well. Contest starts at 7:05 ET.
Below is our lineup suggestion for today. Be sure to check the weather forecasts, lineups, and any possible pitching changes before game time.
