Wednesday features a clash of former Cy Young Award winners in Seattle

Wednesday features a clash of former Cy Young Award winners in Seattle who are trending in opposite directions. Lets dig right into the daily notes for everything you need to know when setting your lineups with this full slate of games.PitchingEliteBack where he belongs? The numbers point in that direction as Justin Verlander has been outstanding since July 1, boasting a 1.85 ERA and 0.88 WHIP and fully supported by 57 whiffs to only eight walks in those 48 1/3 innings. To be fair, the Detroit Tigers veteran was pretty good before that arbitrary cut-off as well. The right-hander will be challenged by a formidable Seattle Mariners squad that has hit righties at an above-average clip, though it has scuffled for much of the past month. Verlander will cost, but hes the only elite option on the board in play for DFS, so long as you dont mind a road matchup with a former ace, Felix Hernandez.SolidIts no longer necessary to avoid using pitchers against the Kansas City Royals for fear of a low strikeout total, as the defending World Series champions have fallen on hard times, including a 23 percent strikeout rate when a lefty is on the hill for the past month. Thats good news for Jose Quintana as he takes the hill in Kauffman Stadium. The Chicago White Sox southpaw has been consistently solid all season, almost always profiling as a DFS cash-game anchor. With an 8.0 K/9, he misses ample bats to take advantage of the Royals reduced contact and can be deployed for GPP action as well.An uncharacteristically high home run rate, fueled by a 16 percent home run per fly mark thats well above average, has bloated Scott Kazmirs ERA. Sure, there were some meatballs that fed into that, but theres also some bad luck as well. Kazmir draws the Philadelphia Phillies in a home affair that sets him up as one of the best plays on the board. The visitors tote the second-lowest home run rate versus lefties into Dodger Stadium while providing increased strikeout potential.Conveniently ignore a disaster in Motown the last day of July, and Dallas Keuchel has tossed nine straight quality starts, registering an impressive 2.27 ERA with a tidy 1.03 WHIP. But of course we cant simply dismiss what happened when the Tigers laid a seven-spot on the Houston Astros lefty. A lower strikeout rate in tandem with a spike in free passes has rendered Keuchel more susceptible to the occasional blowup outing, especially when contrasted to last years Cy Young campaign. Next up is the Minnesota Twins, one of the better teams in the league since July 1, sporting a productive .370 weighted on-base average (wOBA) versus lefties in that span. Theres not a whole lot here to recommend for cash or GPP play, so fading Keuchel, in spite of a nice run that includes a complete game effort his last time out, is the sage play.Confession time: Drew Pomeranz originally checked in with a projected game score of 58, second highest on the docket. The reason for the projection is two-fold. First, the southpaw has not pitched especially well since joining the Boston Red Sox while the formula is still drawing from the first-half success he enjoyed in the Senior Circuit. Second, the opposing New York Yankees have hit left-handers well the past month with a paltry 17 percent strikeout rate. Like Keuchel, Pomeranz is best left on the DFS sidelines.Enough about which players not to use -- lets highlight a southpaw who sets up nicely for tournament action in which strikeouts are paramount. The Arizona Diamondbacks are sending Robbie Ray and his 11.3 K/9 to the Citi Field hill to take on the New York Mets. Ray can be nasty when he keeps the ball in the yard, which unfortunately has been an issue this season. That said, hell hold the platoon advantage over the hosts better power hitters, wholl be without Yoenis Cespedes.Confession time, the sequel: J.A. Happs original projected game score landed him in the streaming section, in large part because of a strikeout rate a few ticks below league average. However, with the Tampa Bay Rays and their 25 percent whiff rate against lefties heading north of the border, Happs in a great spot to tack on a few extra punchouts and be in play for all styles of DFS action.Well close out the solid tier with another risky, but potentially fruitful, option. But before that, heres your daily reminder that Ill be checking the comments and monitoring my Twitter account @ToddZola for any questions pertaining to the days schedule. So far this season, Blake Snell has surrendered just a pair of homers in 55 frames. Some of that is a fortuitous home run per fly ball pace, but batted-ball data suggests good pitching is also contributing. To wit, Snell is allowing more soft contact and less hard contact than the average pitcher. The Toronto Blue Jays will meet Snell at the corner of regression and skills for a tilt at Rogers Centre. Theres enough swing-and-miss in the hosts game to use Snell for tournaments, but that also could send his home run rate higher in a hurry. Not to mention, Snell will be opposed by Happ.StreamersSeventeen of Wednesdays starters fall in the streaming range. However, theres a group of solid arms that barely made it. Im starting Jeff Samardzija, Anthony DeSclafani, Jaime Garcia and Gio Gonzalez, with Garcia in play for DFS as hell face a Cincinnati Reds lineup that offers increased strikeout potential.Here are the better options with an ownership below 50 percent in ESPN leagues:The old adage preaches good pitching will beat good hitting. But what happens when mediocre pitching meets pedestrian hitting? Ryan Vogelsong is worth a pickup to find out when the Pittsburgh Pirates welcome the San Diego Padres into PNC Park.David Phelps makes his second start since entering the Miami Marlins rotation, with his initial outing coming last week at? Coors Field, where he held the Rockies scoreless in 4 1/3 innings. Facing the San Francisco Giants at Marlins Stadium wont be easy, but he appears stretched out enough to go five or six frames and should be able to escape serious damage.Checking out the pitcher scheduled as it aligns with the Astros has become a Pavlovian-type ritual. Ervin Santana is Wednesdays winner and thus becomes the standard high-risk, high-reward option as the Astros continue to fan against right-handers at an elevated pace. However, their offensive prowess in that scenario has waned the past month, recording a rather vapid .295 wOBA. This makes Santana an option for DFS as well as a spot starter in seasonal leagues in which punchouts are needed.Jeremy Hellicksons ESPN ownership is slowly increasing as he continues to get the job done, though at 38 percent its still well below the threshold we set for inclusion on the space. Next up is the Los Angeles Dodgers for a road affair. The Phillies righty has routinely pitched at least six stanzas, rarely allowing more than three earned runs.Chase Andersons 2016 campaign has been disappointing. Its not like he profiled to be anything more than a back-end innings eater, but still, coming into the season it was expected Anderson would pitch well enough for the Milwaukee Brewers to be used in select spots. Well, those spots have been few and far between, but with a date against the Atlanta Braves on tap, the righty is in play for this Miller Park affair.AvoidWe have a trio of risky hurlers registering a game score in the avoid range, and I cant see a reason to override that. Joining Martin Perez, Ross Detwiler and Yovani Gallardo on the fantasy bench is Jorge De La Rosa. There are instances where using De La Rosa on the road can pay dividends. Facing the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park isnt one of them.HittingAs implied by the pitchers to avoid, run scoring should be high at a couple of American League East venues. Well get to those in a minute. Lets start with the slates contrarian option, the Washington Nationals squaring off with Cleveland Indians soft-tossing righty, Josh Tomlin. Tomlin is the type to thwart stacks, which is why this is contrarian. The Nationals offense was on a roll until it ran into the tough Giants staff, but it should fare better against Tomlin and his 1.9 HR/9. Before locking Bryce Harper, check the lineups, as a sore neck had him on the sidelines the past couple of games. Daniel Murphy remains a stud with a righty on the hill, joined by Anthony Rendon, whos been hitting cleanup in Harpers stead. Adding to the contrarian nature of this call is most of the hitters dont have the platoon edge, like Rendon, as well as Wilson Ramos and Jayson Werth.The home-and-home series between the Colorado Rockies and Texas Rangers shifts to Arlington, where offense is favored, though not as much as in Denver. The home team faces southpaw Jorge De La Rosa, putting right-handers Adrian Beltre, Ian Desmond and Jonathan Lucroy at the top of the list. Cheaper options include Ryan Rua and Delino DeShields. The travelers draw lefty Martin Perez, so their right-handed contingent also benefits. Nolan Arenado, Mark Reynolds, DJ LeMahieu and Ryan Raburn lead the way for the Rockies.O.co Coliseum doesnt generally see many points, but with Yovani Gallardo facing Ross Detwiler, the scoreboard operator should be busier than normal. The Baltimore Orioles will face the recently summoned southpaw Detwiler to fill a void in the injury-riddled Athletics rotation. The guests are largely right-handed so this could get ugly. Adam Jones, Jonathan Schoop, Manny Machado and Mark Trumbo are in line to do most of the damage with Steve Pearce and Nolan Reimold in the mix. The home team will counter with Max Muncy, Stephen Vogt and Yonder Alonso having the platoon edge over the righty slants of Gallardo.Most likely to hit a homer: Manny MachadoIts hard to imagine Detwiler keeping the ball in the yard. Every Oriole is in scoring position when they step into the batters box, but lets call on Machado to stay hot in August.Most likely to swipe a bag: Travis JankowskiJankowski has a very good chance of getting on against Ryan Vogelsong, and if he does, the Pirates backstops are easy to run on, so hes the choice. CHEAP BASEBALL JERSEYS . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. NFL JERSEYS FROM CHINA . Ancelotti says Ronaldo has recovered from a hamstring injury but "but he doesnt feel comfortable yet so we wont risk him." Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. http://www.cheapauthenticjerseysnfl.com/ .

General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. CHEAP NFL JERSEYS AUTHENTIC . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. The Los Angeles Kings have put together their longest winning streak of the season and could be adding a key piece to their team.The Kings may have Marian Gaborik in the lineup for the first time this season as they seek their fifth win in a row Saturday night against the Chicago Blackhawks, who hope to wrap up their final Circus Trip with a winning record.Los Angeles (11-9-1) has outscored its opponents 15-8 while winning four straight, all in regulation. The Kings havent won five straight regulation contests since Dec. 26, 2015, to Jan. 2.The possible addition of Gaborik could keep the Kings surging, but a decision on him suiting up is expected to be based on how he does during a morning skate Saturday, according to a website published by the team.I feel good, Gaborik said Friday. (Playing Saturday is) the plan, so obviously (Saturday) well have a morning skate and go from there, but I think I should be good to go.Gaborik was placed on injured reserve Sept. 26 after breaking his right foot during the World Cup of Hockey, the latest serious injury in a lengthy list as he enters his 16th NHL season. A three-time 40-goal scorer, Gaborik needs 14 more for 400 in his career, and has 14 in 31 career games versus Chicago.With Gaborik out and Anze Kopitar struggling (two goals in 19 games), Jeff Carter has been carrying the Kings offense. Though he didnt record a point in Los Angeles 4-2 win over the New York Islanders on Wednesday, Carter had four goals -- with three game-winners -- and two assists in his previous three contests.The Blackhawks have been able to contain Carter, holding him to one goal in the last five matchups.Los Angeles was blanked 3-0 by the Blackhawks on Oct. 30 in Chicago as Corey Crawford recorded 32 saves. The Kings have won two straight, each by one goal,, over Chicago at Staples Center.ddddddddddddWith a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, Chicago (14-6-2) improved to 3-3-0 heading into the finale of its longest road trip of the season.Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist in the win, and is tied with Artemi Panarin for the scoring lead on the road trip with four points. Among current Blackhawks, Kane is the leading scorer at Staples Center with 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists) in 15 games.The reigning Art Ross and Hart Trophy winner has recorded at least two points in four of his last five appearances in Los Angeles, helping the Blackhawks to a 3-1-1 record.A player whos blossomed during the road trip for the Blackhawks has been right wing Ryan Hartman. Three of his five goals have come over the last six games, including the game-winner against the Ducks.He gives us a little abrasiveness, some net presence, some presence in the puck areas, Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said.Also in remarks after the game, Quenneville said it was likely that Scott Darling would start in net against the Kings. Darling is 4-0-0 in six games, including four starts, with a 2.94 GAA and .904 save percentage, but 1-0-1 with a 1.97 GAA and .941 save percentage in two career starts against the Kings.Crawford, meanwhile, is 6-2-0 with a 2.56 GAA and .900 save percentage in his career at Staples Center.Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews missed Fridays game with an upper-body injury and is day-to-day. Toews, who failed to record a point through the first five games of the road trip, has just four goals and eight assists in 21 games this season.His first goal of 2016-17 came in the win over Los Angeles in October.
