Lotte Giants vs. KIA Tigers
Wednesday, May 20, 2020 – 5:30 a.m. ET
Venue: Gwangju, South Korea
South Korea – KBO


Analysis

There are more than a couple intriguing options at pitcher on this slate, but it feels like either Dan Straily ($7,000) or Drew Gagnon ($6,700) are going to help someone take down a GPP on Wednesday. Despite being two of the three cheapest options at the position, both right-handers possess incredible strikeout upside. To wit, among the 45 pitchers with 10-plus innings thrown in 2020, Gagnon ranks second in strikeout rate (30.4%), with Straily sitting right behind him in third (28.4%).
