It’s mid-week already, and with some help identifying the best value pitchers of the day, you could win any of Draftstreet‘s daily leagues. So here are a few guys to look out for.

Best Bet

Tommy Milone – $11,564

Milone has had a couple of rough starts, but he’s largely pitched well, despite the fact that Oakland is 1-6 in games in which he was the starter. Out of seven games, he has four quality starts, including each of his last two outings. He turned in his best outing of the season on May 9, shutting out the Nationals over eight innings en route to his first win of the year. He then followed that up with another quality start, this time a six-inning effort against the White Sox, allowing only one run. Now, he gets to face a slumping Tampa Bay team that is on a three-game losing streak, being shut out in two of those games. And, over the last week, the Rays are hitting a MLB-worst .197.

Double Down

Kyle Kendrick – $10,891

After eight starts, Kendrick is still looking for his first win on the season, yet he has not pitched terribly. Five of his outings were quality starts, going seven innings in four of them, including two of his last three. He’ll try to get his first win tonight against the Marlins. He was on the mound to start a game against Miami earlier this year, which his Phillies won 4-3. Kendrick gave them a shot to win by giving up three runs over six innings. In that game he struck out seven, which remains his high for the season.

Roll the Dice

Jacob deGrom – $12,474

This one is a little tricky, but he still may be worth a look. deGrom made his Major League debut last Thursday, so he only has a small sample size to go on. But his first start was a rousing success. In seven innings, he surrendered one run on four hits against the Yankees. The question you’re now left with is whether he can duplicate in his second start. Well, before that first start, in Triple-A he was 4-0 with a 2.58 ERA. Even a fairly tough matchup against the Dodgers shouldn’t scare you away from at least considering deGrom.
