As always, you are advised to check the game-time MLB forecasts before finalizing lineups. Let's review the Monday slate...
P Madison Bumgarner, SF, $59 (at Pit) – Strasburg and Kershaw oppose each other on Monday, which is a blast in real-life but a small inconvenience when choosing an ace in daily. Bumagerner has a much friendlier draw, facing Jeff Locke and his 5.92 ERA. MadBum hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his last 11 starts.
P Doug Fister, Hou, $38 (vs. LAA) – Fister hasn't dropped a game since April (6-0), and he's lowered his era by over two runs over the past two months. He's a solid favorite here, facing Jhoulys Chacin (5.00 ERA).
C Miguel Montero, CHC, $9 (J. Garcia) – Garcia has been something less than unbeatable lately, allowing 17 ER over his last 25.1 innings. Montero is 3-for-4 against Garcia in his career with a homer and one walk — and still, I wouldn't mind seeing Willson Contreras ($7) in this spot.
