What you need to know for Sunday MLB games

By Todd Zola

  • If you need to make up some promotion points, don’t worry because Sunday’s menu is packed with an abundance of options. But first, here’s your weekly reminder to set lineups early with the agenda starting early with the 11:35 a.m. ET tilt between the visiting San Francisco Giants and host Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ballpark. You wouldn’t know it by 6.25 ERA, but Alex Cobb is for a shift as shown by the 2.37 xFIP and 2.56 SIERA. Cobb (27% on the ESPN rosters) charts the Reds’ squad that has fared better lately, but they’re still ninth-lowest in wOBA with the right on the hill. Cobb’s Cobb’s 21.3% K-BB% ranks 24th among bombers with no less than 30 rounds.

  • If you want to stream Nick Pivetta (46%), you better hurry, because his list will undoubtedly rise once everyone starts paying attention to their Sunday lineup. Not only is Pivetta backed by the revamped Boston Red Sox squad, he will face the Baltimore Orioles with the seventh lowest-ranked wOBA right. Pivetta scored a good start in four consecutive efforts, posting a 1.61 ERA and 0.64 WHIP with 25 holes in those 28 tires.

  • There are three other main goals for a productive immediate start. James Caprillian (4%) takes the hill home for the Oakland Athletics against the Texas Rangers lineup that tops the fourth-poorest WOBA against the right.

  • It will be Dane Dunning (10%) who is in pursuit of the visitors, who is also in a good position and takes the league’s lowest level unit against wOBA against righthanders.

  • Confidence in Kyle Freeland (5%) may be a challenge after Washington Nationals Austin Jumper ignited teammate of the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, but for the season the Nationals are still 10th in weakest.

  • In a surprising move, Atlanta Braves option Travis Demeritte has upgraded prospective player Michael Harris II. He made his league debut on Saturday, playing in the middle of the field. Harris II won’t play every day, but Demeritte has been playing frequently, so his playing time will be split between Harris II and William Contreras (18%). However, both deserve a place on the list in the daily leagues. Contreras is eligible to catch and has seven lines in just 58 board appearances. Atlanta was using Contreras on the left and as a specific hitter, but of course you can click on him in the catcher. Harris II has some pop, but his core stolen ability is his main attraction. The fast-paced 21-year-old driver posted a .305/.372/.506 line with 11 steals in 196 plate appearances for Double-A Mississippi before taking the call.


It’s never too late to start another Major League Baseball Free Fantasy. Leagues drafted this week will start scoring new goals the following Monday.
