Jake DeGrom – Super soph DeGrom gets the nod against the lowly Phillies as our day tab, as he comes in as a strong -175 favorite with a total a full notch under 7. He struck out six at the Nats in the season-opener with just one walk.
Andrew Cashner – With the Padres a considerable favorite at -160 and the game total under 6 1/2, Cashner should allow just over two runs, according to oddsmakers. He was shaky in his first start at L.A., allowing five runs, but we’re playing him at home here.
Jhonny Peralta – The Cards’ SS carries a price tag of 2.8k on FanDuel and he has been solid to date, hitting safely in every game, including a home run on Sunday at Cincinnati. Peralta is 13-for-32 (.406) lifetime against Brewers SP Matt Garza.
Angel Pagan – The SF OF is 3.4k on FanDuel, as we look to take some offense from the hungry Giants in the home opener with the Rockies. Pagan opened the season with a 3-for-4 game, but is 4-for-20 since.
Brett Gardner – The Yankees’ Gardner had two hits and two RBI on Sunday night in the rout of Boston. He has hit in four of five starts so far. He is 5-for-14 against Baltimore’s Chen with two doubles and a HR, but five strikeouts.
