There is actually solid potential for offense if they can get some games in, as several suspect arms are on the hill.
As customary, I'll highlight two solid pitching options at different price points, followed by some one-off hitters across the salary scale that could also prove profitable for cash games and/or tournaments. We'll close it out with a pair of stacks that I believe are particularly set up for success against two of those questionable pitchers I alluded to earlier.
David Buchanan ($8,500) is actually the second-most expensive pitcher on the slate, but I see him as a better option than the $9K-priced Jake Brigham, who's struggled in in his one home start this season and faces a formidable Twins lineup.
