The Daily Grind provides daily match-up advice based on my every-morning waiver wire search. I welcome advice to help make this column more effective. Ownership rates are from Yahoo!
The Fanduel picks are a mixture of Daily League specific advice and information for the more typical fantasy owner.
Those in leagues with same-day moves should refer back to yesterday’s table.
Pitcher (to start): Definitely Marco Estrada against the Marlins. That’s a good match-up on any day and today it’s a great match-up.
I think you can get away with using David Phelps, but he’s a definite step down from Estrada.
Pitcher (bum): Justin Germano is an organizational soldier, not a major league starting pitcher. He’s out there to absorb innings and it wouldn’t shock me if the Nationals battered him.
Late night action will provide the tolerable pitching match-ups.
Tyler Skaggs is set to oppose Andrew Cashner at Petco in a game that makes no promises. Both pitchers are very talented and very much unpolished, so anything could happen. I’m using both throughout my various leagues.
Our old favorite, Rajai Davis, is back with the platoon advantage.
The Twins have a lovely match-up against Jeanmar Gomez that could result in a whole heap of runs.
All’s quiet in the trenches.
