July 17th. Where has time gone?! Feels like yesterday MLB was starting, now we’re past the All-Star break and we are closer to the trade deadline then we are the beginning of summer. Insane.

Monday is usually a smaller slate, but with all MLB teams off last week there are 13 games today, 12 on the main slate. Lots to get to, so let’s dive in.

A few years back, I discussed a checklist that I like to use for my pitching research. That can be found here.

For those of you who have frequented this article, you’ve seen me discuss a pitching chart that would be up on the site. It’s up, check it out here.

RotoCurve Premium is available! Be SURE to check out the membership plans here. Premium content for $1 a day or less!

Our new format has been a big hit from readers, as feedback has shown. Let’s do that again today, as you can see the process unfold and help make your decisions on rostering pitchers for tonight’s slate. The people have spoken.

Here is another  “On The Bump”, process version, for tonight’s slate.

I know that’s a lot of information, but hopefully it helps. Let’s win the money today!


Everything you need for a successful night in MLB DFS can be found in our MLB home page. In addition, check out this exclusive offer for RotoCurve members. It does not get any better than this anywhere in the industry. Every sport, one low price! Check it out here!

I believe in accountability in DFS, so I will update this each day with the stats of pitchers that were included in this column as the pitchers to target. Good or bad, every pitcher I discuss as a play will be added to this report.

Since this On The Bump began, (starting April 11th, 2016) here are the cumulative pitching stats of those discussed:

289-197 (W-L) 3.57 ERA 4061 IP 1619 ER 3969 K
