Philadelphia Phillies’ Aaron Nola had the best showing yesterday and led the Phils to victory. Domingo German deserves to win the sympathy vote as he had a no-no going into the 7th, had it broken up, then had to watch the Yankees’ hapless bullpen implode in yet another late inning loss to the Boston Red Sox.

More than halfway through the MLB season, this week’s top Monday hitter is Kyle Schwarber if you go purely by OPS. That’s all well and good but his bat has cooled significantly during the past 7 games. Yuli Gurriel has been better than Scwharber (and Guerrero Jr, for that matter) but the momentum is with the Oakland A’s Ramon Laureleano who has been hitting a respectable .321 over the same timeframe. He’s our bet for a quality Daily Fantasy Pick.

Success! You're on the list.
