Fantasy Baseball Today: Johnny Cueto throwback outing; a waiver-wire hitter to target; more from Monday

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Monday's action was highlighted by a pitcher's duel between one not-so-surprising party and another a bit more unexpected. The Brewers and Braves got into the duel and Freddy Peralta prevailed. However, it was another quality start from Ian Anderson that really stands out despite him not winning this battle as he continues to look more like a safe play in your rotation. Peralta threw seven shutout innings with 10 strikeouts and allowed just two hits and one walk. After a rocky start, he now has 48 strikeouts through 35 2/3 innings and a 3.53 ERA. Anderson threw six innings of one-run ball and has now allowed three earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. His 13.3% swinging strike rate is the highest of his career, and he makes for an intriguing buy-low candidate.

Johnny Cueto nails White Sox debut, and now it’s Davis Martin’s turn

Back during the rebuild, Rick Hahn used to arrange key pitching promotions around the schedule to give a prized prospect a little bit of a runway. Guys like Reynaldo López, Lucas Giolito and Michael Kopech might look ready in time for a start at Yankee Stadium or Wrigley Field, but if the Sox could wait an extra turn for a softer introduction against the Tigers or Pirates, he would indulge the luxury.
