It's a light day in the Major Leagues on Monday. For some that means quick free agent adds to fill a roster spot. To others it provides a good opportunity to play daily fantasy sports.
In either case, it doesn't hurt to target struggling pitchers, and there's a pretty good matchup to take advantage of today.
Chicago White Sox righthander Scott Carroll allowed 11 hits and six runs in each of his last two starts. He totaled nine innings, giving him a 12.00 ERA and an ugly 2.78 WHIP over the span. He's the 999th ranked fantasy player according to Yahoo, has a 5.24 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP on the season.
He's facing the Kansas City Royals. They haven't been smacking the cover off the ball, but a struggling pitcher is good slump treatment.
