Spot-starts

Kyle Gibson (vs. DET) | 25.3% Owned

Gibson has had a couple of tough outings this season, but has been solid most of the time. Overall, he has a 3.96 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 50.0 innings. Gibson carries a 4.02 xFIPinto Wednesday’s outing, which ranks 55th among qualified startersthis season. Like his xFIP, ERA and WHIP, his contact and ground-ball rates are pretty average, but his matchup boosts his value today.

The Twins have won the first two games of their series with the Tigers, holding them to just two runs. The Tigers come into this afternoon’s game on a five-game losing skid and are 18th in the MLB in OPS (.713), 21st  in wRC+ (91) and have hit the second fewest home runs.

Luiz Gohara (@ PHI) | 10.7% Owned

Gohara started the season on the disabled list but moved to the Braves’ bullpen after a few minor league outings. During his brief stint in the bullpen, Gohara allowed one earned run on two hits, two walks and five strikeouts in 7.0 innings. Gohara is listed as the No.45 prospect in baseballandNo.4 left-handed pitching prospect.

Gohara might not be stretched out enough to go super deep tonight and he might not stay in the rotation once Mike Soroka returns from the disabled list.

Free Agent Adds

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (3B) — Blue Jays — 31.6% Owned

It’s time to stash Guerrero Jr. because the Blue Jays can’t keep him out of the Majors forever. The 19-year-old son of Vladimir Guerrero is hitting an absurd .423/.475/.692 with eight home runs and 45 RBIs in 40 Double-A games. What more does he have to do to earn a promotion to a Toronto team that is 14th in the MLB in OPS (.722) and 18th in wRC+ (95). All of Toronto is waiting for him to be called up and they aren’t going to be able to wait forever, as long as he’s hitting over .420 with a ton of extra-base pop.
