What You Need to Know for Monday MLB Games
- - Advertisement -
It was originally supposed to be the last Monday of the regular season, but MLB was forced to return to one of the series lost due to the lockout. When the schedule first appeared, there were only three matches on the list, so most teams had an open date to draw up games. The tilt of the Baltimore Orioles/Boston Red Sox has since been added, resulting in a four-game roster. Let’s look at each of them with an eye to fantasy and stakes.

The Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates kick off at 6:40 pm ET at PNC Park. Chase Anderson (less than 1% of players in Sportzshala leagues) passes the ball to the away team, while Roanci Contreras (8%) passes to the home team. Anderson comes off a pair of five-inning, one-off attempts against the St. Louis Cardinals and the Red Sox. If Anderson can limit those violations, he must be in the game against the Pirates’ soft line-up. Contreras is a solid streamer, with the caveat that his options are limited, so there’s a chance he’ll be sent off before he hits five frames, even though he beat 10 Yankees in 4 2/3 innings in his last match. In terms of forwards, Oneil Cruz (34%), Rodolfo Castro (9%) and Jack Suwinski (1%) play for the Pirates, with Jake Frahley (6%) being Cincinnati’s top streaming option.
The Atlanta Braves visit the Washington Nationals, where the reigning World Series champions have a chance to close the gap on the New York Mets as they play their “hand game.” With Spencer Strider out of the regular season, Bryce Elder (2%) should get another start, making him the best option for streaming throughout the day. The national players will be up against Corey Abbott, which will put the Braves forwards in an advantageous position, with Vaughn Grissom (46%) and William Contreras (40%) possibly available in 10- and 12-team leagues.
The New York Yankees cross the border to start a three-game streak with the Toronto Blue Jays. Both teams will advance to the playoffs, with the Yankees receiving tickets for second place and a bye while the Blue Jays battle for first place with a wild card and home field advantage in all three games of the series.” Wild Card”. There aren’t many intriguing players available for fantasy as Luis Severino and Kevin Gausman get called up on the hill. However, in tense situations, supporting teams and players with a large number of players tends to pay off. In this case, Gausman appears to be ripe for the opposite DFS game, as are the Toronto hitters.
The Orioles and Red Sox at Fenway Park close the list on Monday. The game means nothing to the AL playoff picture, but there is a fantastic allure with the focus on the road team’s hitters. The Red Sox will give another start to Connor Siebold, who has struggled in his rookie campaign. Impressive rookie Gunnar Henderson (33%) is hitting a cleanup against right-handers for the Orioles. If you need an interception, Jorge Mateo (27%) is in a good position to take advantage of Boston’s inability to control the game. Jordan Lyles ended the game against the Tigers, and despite a disappointing season for Boston, their lineup is still dangerous, especially at Fenway Park. Triston Casas (3%) has only six hits in his first 46 MLB at-bats, but four of them left the floor, with Lyles surrendering 24 homers for 10th this season.
