Max Scherzer (at PHI) – Scherzer has looked outstanding this season, as he has a 14-7 record with a 2.92 ERA and an 11.2 K/9 through his first 27 starts. He gets a great matchup against the Phillies tonight, and he has dominated them in their three matchups this season. Scherzer will be playing in a hitter friendly stadium, which is a bit worrisome, but he’s a -255 favorite in a game set at 8 runs. He can be used in all leagues tonight. 

Johnny Cueto (vs ARI) – Cueto has been enjoying a good season, especially at home in San Francisco. Through his first 12 home starts, Cueto has a 6-2 record with a 2.63 ERA and a 6.8 K/9. He has the ability to pitch deep into games, which helps his fantasy ceiling. He gets a great matchup against the Diamondbacks, who have struggled quite a bit on the road this season. Cueto is a -145 favorite in a game set at 7 runs, and he’s another elite pitching option on this slate.
 

 
Kyle Hendricks (vs PIT) – Hendricks has been throwing at a surprising level this season. He has a 12-7 record with an elite 2.19 ERA and an 8.0 K/9 through his first 24 starts. He gets a decent matchup against the Pirates, who Hendricks dominated earlier this season. He has also been a better pitcher at home, where his ERA dropped to a 1.31. He’s a huge -210 favorite, and he’s still available in 8% of leagues on Yahoo. He should be owned in all leagues by now, and he can be used in all contests tonight.

Masahiro Tanaka (at KC) – Tanaka has quietly been enjoying an elite season, especially over his last 10 games. Over that span, he has a 6-2 record with a 2.70 ERA and an 8.5 K/9. He gets a decent matchup against the Royals, and he will be playing in a pitcher friendly stadium tonight. Tanaka has been significantly better pitcher on the road this season, and he’s a -130 favorite in a game set at 7.5 runs. He’s available in 6% of leagues on Yahoo, and he can safely be used in all leagues tonight.

Julio Teheran (vs SD) – Teheran has been playing well recently, although he has struggled quite a bit over his last few starts. He gets a great matchup against the Padres tonight, though, and they have really struggled offensively this season. Teheran dominated them in their only matchup this season, and he’s a -165 favorite in a game set at 8 runs tonight. He is far from a safe option, but he has displayed elite upside, and he’s available in 19% of leagues on Yahoo. Teheran is a high risk, high reward option on the slate.
