Joey Lucchesi, SD @ TOR (49% Owned)

Lucchesi has seemingly struggled this season compared to last, as his strikeout rate and his ERA have regressed. However, his walk rate and HR/9 have both decreased as well, leading to a lower FIP. His xFIP and SIERA both point to him being better than his ERA currently shows, making him an interesting pitcher going forward. He gets an interesting matchup here, going against a Toronto offense that has a 65 wRC+ at home and a 72 wRC+ against lefties.

Saturday, May 25

Taylor Clarke, ARI @ SF (0% Owned)

This pick might really be nothing more than me picking on the Giants, as their abysmal offensive production continues, holding a 65 wRC+ at home and an 82 wRC+ against righties. Cal Quantrill might be just as useful here, but I decided to pick the better park. Also, watch out for whatever situation the Rays decide to use on Saturday, as there could be an opener used in front of a bulk reliever, which could be useful if you need an innings eater in starts limits leagues.

Jalen Beeks, TB @ CLE (5% Owned)

There will be an opener for Jalen Beeks, which means he will not be a starter. All the better, as he will not get the “start” and therefore will not count against you in leagues that count start limits. In any regard, Beeks has been a useful pitcher for fantasy, having a 9.08 K/9, 2.95 BB/9, and a 0.25 HR/9, earning him a 3.19 ERA and a 2.64 FIP. He’s pitched in 36.2 innings through 12 games, so that’s about three innings per game so far, yet he pitched 4.2 innings in his last appearance, so it seems as though there’s possibly some interest in letting him eat more innings each appearance. He gets a Cleveland lineup with very little punch in it right now, having an 81 wRC+ at home and an 81 wRC+ against lefties.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
