Aaron Nola, Philadelphia Phillies
Nola got shelled in Game 1, but this is still an elite pitcher who can go out and dominate any offense on any given day. He had a 3.24 ERA on the year with a 0.97 WHIP and 253 strikeouts across 222.1 innings and he has the most upside of anyone today.
Cristian Javier, Houston Astros
Javier had a fantastic season with a 2.49 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 201 strikeouts across 155.1 innings of work. He’s been flat-out ridiculous recently with a 1.47 ERA and 0.76 WHIP over his last 10 games. In his most recent start (ALCS game against the Yankees), he fired 5.1 shutout innings with five Ks.
Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies
Harper is scorching hot right now, slashing .366/.381/.829 over his last 10 games with FIE home runs, four doubles, and 21 total R+RBI. He is embracing the playoff spotlight and trying to do everything he can to secure his first World Series ring.
Kyle Tucker, Houston Astros
Tucker was strong against righties this year to the tune of a .275/.359/.491 slash (with 22 steals), compared to .228/.279/.456 against lefties (3 steals). Tucker had a .848 OPS while averaging 9.5 dk ppg on the road this year, compared to marks of .768 and 7.8 at home this year.
Chas McCormick, Houston Astros
McCormick has played very well recently, slashing .355/.459/.581 over his last 10 games with two dingers and nine R+RBI. His price tag is very reasonable, especially for how hot of a bat he is swinging right now.
David Hensley, Houston Astros
Hensley picked up a surprise World Series start in Game 3, his first start of the playoffs. He didn’t do a whole lot, going 1-3 with no counting stats, but it’s hard to ignore his price tag if he draws another start. He looked pretty good in the regular season, going 10-30 (.333) with a home run.
Rhys Hoskins, Philadelphia Phillies
Hoskins is on another level right now, slashing .263/.333/.737 over his last games with SIX home runs and 20 R+RBI. He was much better at home this year, slashing .266/.355/.562 in Philly, compared to .219/.298/.375 on the road.
J.T. Realmuto, Philadelphia Phillies
He was also way better at home this year too, slashing .315/.375/.549, compared to .236/.313/.407 on the road. He is slashing a healthy .263/.333/.526 over his last 10 games with three dingers.
Brandon Marsh, Philadelphia Phillies
Marsh was someone I liked against McCullers and had a monster game, going 2-3 with a home run and two runs scored to finish with 19 dk points. He is still very cheap and that is what makes him an option for today’s game once again, especially after a strong performance.
