What you need to know for Tuesday’s MLB games

By Derek Carty

  • After the top tier of elite pitchers who make the near-universal list, Jose Quintana (29% on the list in ESPN leagues) is the best pitcher on the board today. He’s been terrific this season and has a soft matchup against a weak Nationals offense, at home in pitcher-friendly Busch Stadium.

  • If you’re a Brandon Woodruff trainer, today is a day to keep him on your bench. As good as he is, he walks into Coors Field today…and it’s 95 degrees. He projects a 4.77 ERA and a 1.34 FIP, which can’t be used in any format.

  • On the other side of that game, the Milwaukee Brewers are clearly the best offense to stream from today. They are the only team THE BAT X projects for more than 6 races, and their projected total is closer to 7 against Chad Kuhl. Rowdy Tellez (66%), Kolten Wong (65%), Andrew McCutchen (52%), Luis Urias (47%), Omar Narvaez (23%), Keston Hiura (2%) and Jace Peterson (2%) are all in play (depending on who is in the lineup).

  • Particularly for those looking for stolen bases, the Cubs against Justin Dunn also offer an excellent opportunity. Dunn is one of the weakest pitchers in baseball and one of the easiest to steal once you get on base. Nico Hoerner (40%) and Rafael Ortega (1%) in particular are projecting quite well to steal today.
