Pitchers

Gerrit Cole, NYY (DK $11,000)

After a poor start, two games back against the Rays Cole has turned things around over his last two outings. Against a strong hitting team in Toronto last time out, Cole went eight innings strong and allowed just two earned runs. While the Royals have not been prone to striking out they aren't a team that possesses a lot of power. While Kansas City is a team that could string hits together I don't like their chances of stringing base runners together against an arm like Cole.

Zack Wheeler, PHI (DK $10,200)

The Nationals have the 10th-highest strikeout rate in the league over the past two weeks and Wheeler, who's been rolling, mowed them down on June 4th to the tune of 7.1 innings, eight strikeouts, and five hits with two earned runs. Wheeler has pitched at least seven full innings in five of his last six starts as he'll face the Nationals third time this season.

Freddy Peralta, MIL (DK $10,000)

Over the past two weeks, the Diamondbacks have been one of the worst-hitting teams in the league. Over that span, they have a team ISO of .097 and a wOBA of .257. Against the Diamondbacks, on June 4th Peralta went 7.1 innings, allowed one earned run, and struck out nine. Looking at the way the D'backs have been swinging it of late I expect Peralta to mow them down again.
