Jake Peavy took another loss after allowing three runs on nine hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 5.2 innings against the Brewers on Thursday.
Peavy's return to the National League has not gone as planned, falling to 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over his first three starts with the Giants. However, after serving up 20 home runs over his first 124.0 innings, he has yet to give up a long ball since being traded, which is an accomplishment in itself, considering how bad he has pitched in 2014. Despite his struggles, Peavy is going to continue to get the ball every five games, so those in NL-only leagues will want to give him a look if in a desperate situation, just don't expect much to change. He will look to get his first victory as a member of the Giants when he take son the White Sox on Tuesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jonathan Gray is expected to start for the Rockies Tuesday.
Gray was the third overall pick in 2013, but his minor league numbers have not exactly lived up to his lofty draft status. In 21 games at Triple-A this season, Gray has a 4.33 ERA, 3.89 FIP and 2.68 K/BB rate. While he probably needs to be owned in deeper leagues and keeper leagues, it is going to be awfully hard to feel confident starting him in Coors until he has some big league success. He could be a sneaky tournament play for DFS Tuesday against the strikeout-prone Mariners, but Gray could easily give up five home runs as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Lucas Duda went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Nationals on Sunday.
Duda is absolutely on fire and is a must-start until he shows signs of slowing down. He became the first Mets player in franchise history to hit nine home runs in an eight-game span after his 21st bomb of the season tonight. Duda was middling around this summer until coming on strong this past week. In his last eight games he has nine homers, 11 hits and a ridiculous 1.393 slugging percentage. This is obviously something Duda won’t be able to keep up, but until he drops off keep him in your lineup. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
