Tyler Chatwood is great, when he's not at Coors Park

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Full docket of games today (16) scattered from 2:15pm -10:15pm. The highest of the pitchers is Clayton Kershaw ($12,500) who will face the Cleveland Indians.

Weather (as of now):
St. Louis could have some rain, everywhere else looks clear (for now).

Target: Tyler Chatwood ($8,000) Colorado Rockies @ Pittsburgh Pirates

1. His last three home starts: 6 Earned Runs (3 SO, 4 IP), 5 Earned Runs (6 SO, 4 IP), 1 Earned Run (5 SO, 7 IP)
2. His last three road starts: 1 Earned Run (4 SO, 6 IP), 1 Earned Run (8 SO, 8 IP), 0 Earned Runs (8 SO, 7 IP).
3. He's on the road today against Pittsburgh.

Stack Against: Alec Asher ($5,500) Baltimore Orioles @ Chicago White Sox

1. He's allowed at least 5 ER in his last 2 road starts
2. Chicago has scored at least 5 runs in 3 of their last 5 games.
3. Baltimore is reeling allowing 10+ runs in 3 straight starts and currently on a 5 game losing streak. I'm rolling the dice on one more loss.

Two Hitters I like:

Todd Frazier ($3,400) his bat is heating up over the last 2 weeks and I think he has a HR against Alec Asher who has allowed a HR in 2 of his last 3 starts.
Ryan Zimmerman ($4,000) back from his injury with some rest to boot, he will face RA Dickey who he has a .471 average with 2 HR and 5 RBI's against over 17 AB.

Two Hitters I'd avoid:

Chris Davis ($3,600) the injury plus his meager .143 batting average against Derek Holland have me avoiding him.
•All Cleveland batters -€” Kershaw.
