Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel will start against a familiar opponent Sunday, May 3, when the Cubs play the Milwaukee Brewers. Hammel is one of two active pitchers with a 5-0 record against the Brewers. San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner is the only pitcher, with at least five starts against Milwaukee, to have a better ERA than Hammel.
Fantasy Tip: Hammel ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has 23 strikeouts through 25 and one-third innings this season, and he is worthy of strong FantasyScore consideration, while offering some cap relief at the most important position.
