STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Matthew Boyd vs. Miami Marlins
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $9,500
DraftKings = $10,300

Boyd stands out as one of the best options for this limited slate. He’s been one of the few bright spots for the Tigers, recording a 3.59 xFIP and a 1.01 WHIP across 10 starts. He’s also increased his strikeout rate to 29.9 percent, which is almost nine percentage points higher than his career mark. The Marlins are off to a historically poor start offensively, so look for Boyd to have another excellent outing.

Trevor Richards vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $6,700
DraftKings =$7,500

If you want to take a chance on a cheap pitcher, you might as well attack another weak offense. If it weren’t for how bad the Marlins have been, the Tigers would be last in the league in many offensive categories. That brings Richards into play despite his 5.56 xFIP. He’s actually had plenty of valuable performances, allowing three runs or fewer in six of his nine starts. Don’t count on him for many strikeouts, but he might be worth a shot in tournament play.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Austin Romine vs. Dylan Bundy, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $2,100
DraftKings =$3,300

I’m operating under the assumption that Gary Sanchez will sit out this early start time after playing Wednesday night. If he is in the lineup, he’s obviously a strong play based on how hot he is right now. If he doesn’t take the field, Romine could also provide value at a much cheaper price considering Bundy has a 4.93 xFIP and has allowed 11 home runs across 46.1 innings.

Others to consider: Yan Gomes

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Josh Bell vs. Antonio Senzatela, Colorado Rockies
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,800

There are few hitters in the league as hot as Bell is right now. Over his last 17 games, he’s 27-for-67 (.403) with nine home runs and five doubles. He also recorded 23 RBI over that stretch, giving him 45 for the season, overall. His career-high is 90 RBI in a season, so he is well on pace to shatter that mark. Senzatela doesn’t have an overpowering arsenal based on his career 17.5 percent strikeout rate, making Bell a great option.

Others to consider: Luke Voit and Howie Kendrick

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Michael Chavis vs. Clayton Richard, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Rogers Centre
FanDuel = $3,800
DraftKings = $5,400

After playing just 20 total games at Triple-A during his minor league career, Chavis was called up to the majors when the Red Sox were dealing with injuries to their infield. He looks here to stay based on his .405 wOBA. He’s already slugged 10 home runs to go along with 25 RBI on just 28 games. Richard is being activated off the IL to either start or pitch the bulk of the innings after an opener, which makes Chavis very appealing considering Richard’s career 1.42 WHIP.

Others to consider: D.J. LeMahieu and Adam Frazier

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. vs. Ryan Weber, Boston Red Sox
Stadium – Rogers Centre
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,400

Guerrero’s slow start is officially in his rearview mirror. One of the games most highly thought of prospects is living up to the hype, hitting 14-for-38 (.368) with five home runs across his last 10 games. He also has five walks compared to just four strikeouts during that stretch. Weber had a 4.78 xFIP at Triple-A this year, so don’t expect him to be the one to slow down Guerrero.

Others to consider: Anthony Rendon and Gio Urshela

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Gleyber Torres vs. Dylan Bundy, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,800
DraftKings = $5,400

The numbers that Torres has put up against the Orioles are out of this world. He’s crushed them this season, hitting 20-for-43 (.465) with 10 home runs across 11 games. With how poorly Bundy has pitched, fading Torres doesn’t seem like a sound strategy given the limited slate.

Others to consider: Xander Bogaerts and Freddy Galvis

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/23/19

Mookie Betts vs. Clayton Richard, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Rogers Centre
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,100

If you’re going to attack this matchup against Richard, Betts has to be included in Red Sox stack. He has the highest upside on the team and is 10-for-29 (.345) with a home run and two doubles over his last seven games. He also has a career .380 wOBA versus left-handed pitching.

Brett Gardner vs. Dylan Bundy, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $2,900
DraftKings = $4,500

Gardner is having a strange season. He has a career-high .214 ISO with his strikeout rate checking in at a career-low 12.2 percent. He’s only hitting .226, but some of that has to do with his .221 BABIP. While his groundball rate has remained close to his career mark, he’s hitting fewer line drives and more fly balls, which is likely the reason for his increased power numbers. With Bundy’s propensity for giving up home runs, Gardner is a good mid-tier priced Yankee to consider.

Raimel Tapia vs. Jordan Lyles, Pittsburgh Pirates
Stadium – PNC Park
FanDuel = $2,400
DraftKings =$4,400

Attacking Lyles might not seem like a good idea based on his 1.97 ERA. However, his xFIP stands at 3.93, so he hasn’t been that dominant. He’s also allowed a wOBA against lefties that is 125 points higher than his wOBA against righties. While Tapia’s price on DraftKings isn’t very appealing, he’s a cheap option to maybe take a chance on in tournament play on FanDuel.

Others to consider: Aaron Hicks and Billy McKinney

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/2019

Wednesday’s evening slate of action will be highlighted by an excellent pitching matchup between Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom. They aren’t the only stud pitchers set to take the mound, either. Let’s discuss some of the best hitting and pitching option across the price scale. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Gerrit Cole vs. Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $11,700
DraftKings = $12,000

After being dominated by Justin Verlander on Tuesday, the White Sox now have to face Cole. Talk about a rough two-game stretch. Cole is putting together another dominant campaign, recording a 2.32 xFIP and a 38.3 percent strikeout rate across his first 10 starts. The White Sox air tied for the fifth-most strikeouts (451) in the league, so expect them to have a hard time generating offense in this contest.

Max Fried vs. San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Oracle Park
FanDuel = $9,000
DraftKings = $8,500

While they aren’t as bad as the Marlins, seeking out pitchers against the Giants’ anemic lineup is usually a sound strategy. Entering this contest, the Giants have scored the fourth-fewest runs (180) and recorded the third-lowest OPS (.654) across baseball. Fried has a 3.27 xFIP and a 1.13 WHIP through his first 11 outings and has done a great job of limiting home runs, allowing just 12 in 110 innings during his brief major league career.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Gary Sanchez vs. Dan Straily, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,500

It’s hard to spend this much on a catcher, but can we really fade Sanchez at this point? He’s homered in back-to-back games, giving him eight in just nine games versus the Orioles this season. He’ll face another underwhelming Orioles starter in Straily who has allowed 10 home runs in 30.2 innings. It’s not easy to homer in three straight games, but that seems like a viable possibility with Sanchez.

Others to consider: Yadier Molina

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Yuli Gurriel vs. Ivan Nova, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $2,700
DraftKings = $3,900

The Yankees are going to be a popular stack against Straily. Right up there with them on the ownership leaderboard should be the Astros against Nova. His 4.79 xFIP isn’t nearly as bad as his 7.42 ERA, but allowing 10 home runs in 47.1 innings isn’t helpful. Gurriel is one of the more cost-effective Astros to consider, especially since he has hit 21-for-64 (.328) with three home runs and three doubles over his last 16 games.

Others to consider: Luke Voit and Mitch Moreland

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Aledmys Diaz vs. Ivan Nova, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $3,300
DraftKings = $4,500

After missing three games due to a hamstring injury, Diaz returned Tuesday to hit record two hits. He’s stepped up in a big way with Jose Altuve (hamstring) out, hitting 10-for-23 (.435) with three home runs across his last seven games. With how poorly Nova has pitched, Diaz has an excellent opportunity to continue his recent run of success.

Others to consider: D.J. LeMahieu and Jonathan Schoop

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Rafael Devers vs. Aaron Sanchez, Toronto Blue Jays
Stadium – Rogers Centre
FanDuel = $3,300
DraftKings = $4,900

After starting out the season by failing to hit a home run in his first 32 games, Devers has become one of the Red Sox most dangerous hitters of late. Not only is he 22-for-64 (.344) over his last 15 games, but he also has five home runs and three doubles during that stretch. Sanchez dealt with a blister issue in his last start and has recorded a 1.51 WHIP, making Devers a very appealing option.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Gleyber Torres vs. Dan Straily, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $4,000
DraftKings = $5,300

Torres has been just as hot against the Orioles as Sanchez has, hitting 18-for-38 (.474) with eight home runs against them this season. While his numbers against them are obviously impressive, his overall numbers have shown improvement compared to his rookie campaign, including his strikeout rate decreasing by nearly five percentage points. The Yankees have themselves another special hitter here.

Others to consider: Jorge Polanco and Carlos Correa

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/22/19

Aaron Hicks vs. Dan Straily, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,700
DraftKings = $4,700

The oft-injured Hicks has been on the IL for the majority of the season after signing to a long term extension during the offseason. He’s found his way on base four times across his 10 plate appearances in this series against the Orioles and has at least one hit in three of his last four games, overall. With his 132 wRC+ versus right-handed pitchers last year, he’s a great option for a Yankees stack.

Max Kepler vs. Matt Harvey, Los Angeles Angels
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $4,100

As appealing as stacking either the Yankees and Astros is, don’t forget about the Twins. They’ve been one of the best offensive teams in the league and have a prime matchup against Harvey and his 4.72 xFIP. He hasn’t made it past the fifth inning in six of his nine starts and isn’t an overpowering force based on his 17 percent strikeout rate. Kepler’s career wOBA against right-handed pitchers is 70 points higher than it is against lefties, so this is a matchup to exploit.

Jake Marisnick vs. Ivan Nova, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $2,400
DraftKings = $4,900

Marisnick made this list yesterday and recorded two walks and a run scored. With George Springer (back) not expected to return until the weekend, Marisnick should once again be in the starting lineup. He’s too pricey on DraftKings, but he’s one of the top cheap outfielders to target on FanDuel.

Others to consider: Cody Bellinger and Nicholas Castellanos

Tuesday will be a busy night in baseball with 14 games making up the main slate in DFS. Whether you like to pay up for pitchers or hitters, there are plenty of viable options to pursue either strategy. Let’s break down some of the players with the most favorable matchups to consider. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Caleb Smith vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $10,100
DratfKings = $10,400

As bad of a matchup as this is between two of the worst teams in the league, it’s exciting whenever Smith takes the mound. He’s been one of the more dominant forces in the league out of the gate, recording a 2.94 xFIP, 0.92 WHIP and a 35.2 percent strikeout rate. The Tigers have scored the second-fewest runs (149) and hit the second-fewest home runs (36) in baseball, so this is a matchup to exploit.

Julio Teheran vs. San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Oracle Park
FanDuel = $8,400
DraftKings = $8,500

Speaking of matchups to exploit, the Giants have scored the fifth-fewest runs (176) and hit for the fourth-lowest OPS (.655). That brings Teheran into play if you’re looking for a more cost-effective option at pitcher. He’s only allowed one run across his last 17 innings and has recorded a career-high 23.9 percent strikeout rate through his first 10 starts.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Isiah Kiner-Falefa vs. Tommy Millone, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $2,300
DraftKings = $3,800

This is a tough assignment for Millone, who has been struggling at Triple-A with a 5.65 xFIP. The good news is that the Rangers have a lot of left-handed hitters, but Millone will have to face them in their hitter-friendly home park. Kiner-Falefa is a cheap right-handed bat to consider who has a career .341 wOBA against left-handed pitchers.

Others to consider: Gary Sanchez

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Kendrys Morales vs. David Hess, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $2,500
DraftKings = $3,600

Although Morales did record an RBI in the Yankees 10-run outburst Monday, he went 0-for-5 at the plate. He has driven in at least one run in three straight games as he’s found himself hitting in the middle of the lineup since joining the team. He has another favorable matchup against Hess, who has allowed a staggering 14 home runs across 40.1 innings. At this cheap, Morales might be worth the risk in tournament play.

Others to consider: Daniel Vogelbach and Yuli Gurriel

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

D.J. LeMahieu vs. Davis Hess, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,600

Not only does Hess allow a ton of home runs, but he only has a 17.1 percent strikeout rate for his career. That could make LeMahieu a tough out, especially since he himself only has a 15.1 percent strikeout rate for his career. LeMahieu has proven to be a key addition for the Yankees due to all of their injuries and has been especially hot of late, hitting 29-for-81 (.358) with two home runs and four doubles across his last 20 games.

Others to consider: Aledmys Diaz and Nicky Lopez

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Tommy La Stella vs. Michael Pineda, Minnesota Twins
Stadium – Angel Stadium
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,400

La Stella is having a breakout campaign for the Angels, especially in the power department with his .271 ISO. Maybe just as impressive is that he’s doing that while only recording a 6.7 percent strikeout rate. The big difference has been him increasing his flyball rate by over 10 percentage points compared to last season. Pineda has allowed 13 home runs across 47 innings, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see La Stella go deep in this game.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Gleyber Torres vs. David Hess, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $5,100

Torres continued his hot hitting Monday by launching two home runs. He’s destroyed the Orioles this season, hitting 17-for-35 (.486) with eight home runs across nine games. With how many home runs Hess has allowed this season, Torres could be in line for another monster stat line. He won’t come cheap on DraftKings, but his price on FanDuel is very appealing.

Others to consider: Carlos Correa and Danny Santana

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/21/19

Hunter Pence vs. Tommy Millone, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $3,900
DraftKings = $5,100

Pence looks to have rejuvenated his career with the Rangers, recording a .412 wOBA and a .337 ISO in the early going. He’s tearing the cover off the ball with a 58 percent hard-hit rate, which is a number he likely won’t be able to sustain over the course of the season. Still, with an underwhelming lefty on the mound at home, this is setting up nicely for him to be productive once again.

Aaron Hicks vs. David Hess, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,500
DraftKings = $4,700

Hicks is only 3-for-19 since being activated from the IL, but getting his switching-hitting bat back in the lineup is huge for the Yankees. He hit righties particularly well last season, recording a 132 wRC+ against them compared to a 116 wRC+ versus lefties. He could have a low ownership percentage based on his initial struggles, which could be helpful when trying to differentiate yourself in tournament play while still pursuing a Yankees stack.

Jake Marisnick vs. Dylan Covey, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Minute Maid Park
FanDuel = $2,200
DraftKings = $4,600

With George Springer battling a stiff back, Marisnick and Josh Reddick were both in the lineup Monday. Marisnick launched a home run and is off to an incredible start with a 145 wRC+. There should be plenty of regression in the cards based on his .396 BABIP and 32.6 percent strikeout rate, but facing the struggling Covey is a great matchup. His price is too high on DraftKings, but he’s a cheap option to target on FanDuel.

Others to consider: Max Kepler and Austin Riley

Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Patrick Corbin vs. New York Mets
Stadium – Citi Field
FanDuel = $10,800
DraftKings = $10,900

The Mets had an ugly weekend series against the Marlins, including getting shut out in both of the last two games. While they made some improvements to their lineup during the offseason, they are still in the bottom-third in the league in OPS. The majority of their best hitters are also lefties, which is not good news with Corbin on the mound. He’s already faced the Mets three times this year, allowing six runs and recording 24 strikeouts across 20 innings. Expect him to shine once again.

Luke Weaver vs. San Diego Padres
Stadium – Petco Park
FanDuel = $9,600
DraftKings = $8,500

Weaver has been one of the bright spots in the Diamondbacks’ rotation, kicking off his tenure with the team with a 3.68 xFIP and a 1.11 WHIP. He’s getting hitters to chase at a higher percentage of pitches outside of the strikeout, which has helped him boast a 26.1 percent strikeout rate. The Padres have struck out the third-most times (460) in baseball, making Weaver a great second-tier option to consider.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Tyler Flowers vs. Andrew Suarez, San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Oracle Park
FanDuel = $2,600
DraftKings = $3,500

The Braves are a team to stack with Suarez making his season debut for the Giants. He’s pitched poorly at Triple-A, allowing a 5.60 xFIP and a 1.70 WHIP through six starts. Brian McCann will likely take a seat with the lefty on the mound, making Flowers an intriguing cheap option to consider. He’s off to a great start with a .348 wOBA, although his batting average has been aided by an abnormally high .400 BABIP.

Others to consider: Robinson Chirinos

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Kendrys Morales vs. Andrew Cashner, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $2,200
DraftKings = $3,400

With the Yankees continuing to deal with a mountain of injuries, they quickly pounced on Morales after he was cut loose by the A’s. He’s off to a terrible start with a .281 wOBA, although his strikeout rate is all the way down to 15.8 percent. He’s 3-for-10 with a home run since joining the Yankees and is a cheap option to consider in tournament play with Cashner and his 4.61 xFIP on the mound.

Others to consider: Luke Voit and Yuli Gurriel

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Ozzie Albies vs. Andrew Suarez, San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Oracle Park
FanDuel = $3,700
DraftKings = $4,200

Albies is in a bit of a slump that has seen him hit 7-for-35 (.200) with 11 strikeouts over his last 10 games. However, this might be just the matchup that he needs to get back on track. Not only was Suarez pitching poorly in the minors, but Albies has a career 145 wRC+ against left-handed pitchers. His price is especially appealing on DraftKings.

Others to consider: D.J. Lemahieu and Rougned Odor

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Anthony Rendon vs. Wilmer Font, New York Mets
Stadium – Citi Field
FanDuel = $4,100
DraftKings = $5,100

The Mets are expected to start Font or Drew Gagnon for this game. Neither one of them is pitching well, so the Nationals could be in line for a big offensive performance. Rendon would likely be right in the middle of any scoring outburst, especially since he is 10-for-23 (.435) with two home runs and four doubles during his six-game hitting streak.

Others to consider: Alex Bregman and Gio Urshela

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Gleyber Torres vs. Andrew Cashner, Baltimore Orioles
Stadium – Oriole Park at Camden Yards
FanDuel = $3,500
DraftKings = $4,800

After getting off to a slow start, Torres has been a rock for the Yankees by hitting 29-for-83 (.349) with four home runs and seven doubles over his last 21 games. He’s cut his strikeout rate by over four percentage points compared to his rookie season and is once again hitting for power with a .210 ISO, making him a great target for a Yankees stack.

Others to consider: Trea Turner and Dansby Swanson

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/20/19

Joey Gallo vs. Mike Leake, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $4,200
DraftKings = $5,700

This could be a perfect storm for Gallo. The first factor working in his favor is that this game will be played at hitter-friendly Globe Life Park in Arlington. Second, Leake has allowed 11 home runs in just 54 innings. He’ll eat up a significant portion of your budget, but Gallo’s homer upside in this matchup is undeniable.

Austin Riley vs. Andrew Suarez, San Francisco Giants
Stadium – Oracle Park
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,000

We’ve seen a lot of impressive starts by rookies the last few years. Riley was one of the more highly regarded prospects in baseball before being called up by the Braves and he’s wasted no time making a name for himself, hitting 8-for-19 (.421) with two home runs and a double. His price is climbing, but it’s still low enough to provide him with the potential for significant value against Suarez.

Willie Calhoun vs. Mike Leake, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – Globe Life Park in Arlington
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,500

Riley wasn’t the only young player who shined after being called up recently. Calhoun is trying to slug his way to a regular spot in the Rangers lineup, hitting 10-for-21 (.476) with two home runs and a double across five games. He had a .413 wOBA at Triple-A, so there’s little question that he can be an impact hitter in the big leagues. With how poorly Leake has pitched, he’s a more cost-effective Ranger to consider.

Others to consider: Juan Soto and Shin-Soo Choo

With few quality starting pitchers set to take the mound, it presents an opportunity to spend more on hitters than you might normally be accustomed to.

As is usually the case Thursday’s, we have a limited evening slate in DFS that consists of just five games. With few quality starting pitchers set to take the mound, it presents an opportunity to spend more on hitters than you might normally be accustomed to. Let’s breakdown some of the best matchups to target. Don’t forget to sign up for our Newsletter and try our MLB Lineup Optimizer to help build a winning entry on FanDuel and DraftKings.

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Luis Castillo vs. Chicago Cubs
Stadium – Great American Ball Park
FanDuel = $10,300
DraftKings = $10,600

Castillo is the one big name available if you want to pay up at pitcher. While his 1.76 ERA is unsustainable, his 3.08 xFIP indicates he’s still pitching extremely well. His strikeout rate has jumped all the way up to 31.8 percent with the help of his nasty changeup. The Cubs do have a dangerous lineup, but they could be weakened with Anthony Rizzo (back) potentially set to miss his fourth-straight game. Even if he does play, Castillo’s strikeout upside makes him a great option.

Trevor Williams vs. San Diego Padres
Stadium – Petco Park
FanDuel = $7,900
DraftKings = $8,300

In terms of strikeouts, Williams is the opposite of Castillo with just an 18.1 percent strikeout rate for his career. The good news is that he does an excellent job of keeping runners off base, following up his 1.18 WHIP last year with a 1.15 WHIP across his first eight starts. He’s also allowed only 0.8 HR/9 for his career, so he’s worth considering at this budget-friendly price.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Omar Narvaez vs. Michael Pineda, Minnesota Twins
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,500

The Mariners are going to be a popular stack against Pineda and his 1.45 WHIP. Narvaez stands out as one of the top catching options based this favorable matchup and his 148 wRC+. His. 308 batting average likely isn’t sustainable, but his .385 wOBA isn’t all that crazy since he recorded a .348 wOBA last year.

Others to consider: Yadier Molina

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Daniel Vogelbach vs. Michael Pineda, Minnesota Twins
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $3,700
DraftKings = $4,800

Another weakness for Pineda has been his ability to keep hitters inside the ballpark. He’s already allowed 10 home runs across 40 innings, which could spell trouble against a Mariners lineup that is tied with the Astros for the most home runs (83) in baseball. Vogelbach is definitely towards the top of the list in terms of Mariners to target based on his robust .354 ISO and .411 wOBA.

Others to consider: Josh Bell and Rowdy Tellez

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Eric Sogard vs. Dylan Covey, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $3,600
DraftKings = $4,400

While the Mariners have a juicy matchup against Pineda, the Blue Jays are going to be hard to resist against Covey. With few viable options to turn to, the White Sox are forced to continue starting Covey despite his career 1.57 WHIP. He’s also allowed a .356 wOBA to left-handed hitters during his tenure in the majors, making Sogard a very appealing option. He’s helped stabilize second base for the Blue Jays with his .408 wOBA.

Others to consider: Kolten Wong and Jonathan Schoop

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. vs. Dylan Covey, Chicago White Sox
Stadium – Guaranteed Rate Field
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,100

A great cheaper option to target on both sites is Guerrero. It’s taken him some time to get adjusted, but it was very encouraging to see him hit two home runs Tuesday. He only has a 19.4 percent strikeout rate to go along with a 42.9 percent hard-hit rate, so don’t get too down on his .222 average. Covey has allowed 1.6 HR/9 for his career, leaving Guerrero with an excellent opportunity to go yard again.

Others to consider: Matt Carpenter and Marwin Gonzalez

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Jorge Polanco vs. Erik Swanson, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $4,300
DraftKings = $5,000

One of the big reasons for the Twins offensive improvement this year has been Polanco, who missed the first half of 2018 due to a suspension. He’s left little doubt that he is still a productive player, recording a 168 wRC+. After finishing with a .368 wOBA against right-handed pitchers last year, he’s a player worth paying up for.

Others to consider: Paul DeJong and Freddy Galvis

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/16/19

Eddie Rosario vs. Erik Swanson, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $4,200
DraftKings = $4,700

Rosario was recently in a tough slump, but he’s showing signs of coming out of it by hitting 10-for-29 (.345) across his last eight games. His .217 BABIP indicates his batting average is bound to improve and he’s off to the best power start of his career with a .285 ISO, so he could be a thorn in the side of Swanson in this matchup.

Byron Buxton vs. Erik Swanson, Seattle Mariners
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $3,200
DraftKings = $4,000

One of the most highly-regarded prospects in baseball during his time in the minor leagues, Buxton had failed to live up to expectations heading into this season. While injuries have been a contributing factor, he was also striking out way too much. The good news is that he’s showing signs of breaking out, partially because he’s reduced his strikeout rate to 22.6 percent. He’s been a doubles machine who has also stolen eight bases, making him a great mid-tier option to consider.

Jay Bruce vs. Michael Pineda, Minnesota Twins
Stadium – T-Mobile Park
FanDuel = $3,100
DraftKings = $4,200

With Pineda’s struggles to prevent home runs, Bruce is another Mariner to target. His batting average is atrocious at .185, but some of that can be attributed to his staggeringly low .169 BABIP. However, he’s still launched 12 home runs, making him a dangerous hitter whenever he steps up to the plate.

Others to consider: Mitch Haniger and Max Kepler

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/2019

Weather shouldn't be an issue Wednesday for the main evening slate in DFS, which is a relief considering all of the rain that some teams have dealt with recently. With eight games to choose from, we have a nice mix of pitchers and hitters to discuss. The post MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/2019 appeared first on Lineup...

STARTING PITCHERS

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Justin Verlander vs. Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $12,000
DraftKings = $11,000

Verlander stands out as the top pitching option for this slate. He’s off to another great start with a 3.56 xFIP and a 30.6 percent strikeout rate while having arguably the best lineup in the league backing him. It also doesn’t get much better than his matchup against the Tigers, who have scored the second-fewest runs (139) in the league. The only downside is that his hefty price tag will handcuff you when selecting hitters for your entry.

Jalen Beeks vs. Miami Marlins
Stadium – Marlins Park
FanDuel = $5,500
DraftKings =$7,600

Ryne Stanek will serve as the opener for this game with Beeks expected to then cover the majority of the innings. Beeks has performed well in this role so far, recording a 1.17 WHIP and a 23.8 percent strikeout rate. The Marlins are off to a historically bad start, so this is a matchup to exploit. His price is especially appealing on FanDuel with the options that it can open up on the hitting side of things.

CATCHER

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Brian McCann vs. Michael Wacha, St. Louis Cardinals
Stadium – SunTrust Park
FanDuel = $2,900
DraftKings = $4,000

It looks like a return to Atlanta was just what the doctor ordered for McCann. After struggling and battling injuries the last couple of years, he’s thrived this season with a .367 wOBA. He has as many walks (eight) as he does strikeouts while posting a career-high 40.7 percent hard-hit rate. Wacha has struggled with a 1.65 WHIP over seven starts, making McCann a prime target at his position.

Others to consider: Robinson Chirinos

FIRST BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Yuli Gurriel vs. Gregory Soto, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $3,000
DraftKings = $4,000

The Astros are the top stack of the day. They’ve scored 19 runs across the first two games of their series with the Tigers and will be facing a pitcher in Soto who will be on three-days rest after making his first start above Double-A. That outing did not go well since he allowed seven runs over four innings to the Twins. Gurriel is one of the more cost-effective options on the Astros and he’s 17-for-45 (.378) with two home runs across his last 11 games.

Others to consider: Freddie Freeman and Ji-Man Choi

SECOND BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Rougned Odor vs. Jorge Lopez, Kansas City Royals
Stadium – Kauffman Stadium
FanDuel = $2,500
DraftKings = $3,700

Another popular stack should be the Rangers since Lopez has a career 1.54 WHIP. He’s already allowed 10 home runs across 43 innings, which makes Odor appealing with his power upside. Despite his horrible start, Odor might not be a crazy option if you’re looking to save some money at second base.

Others to consider: Brandon Lowe and Aledmys Diaz

THIRD BASE

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Alex Bregman vs. Gregory Soto, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $4,400
DraftKings = $5,300

Here we begin the run of expensive Astros hitters to target. Bregman has eight home runs across his last 12 games to raise his ISO to a career-high .299. He has almost as many walks (27) as he does strikeouts (29) and has a career 148 wRC+ against left-handed pitchers, so no need to overthink this one.

Others to consider: Yandy Diaz and Mike Moustakas

SHORTSTOP

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

Carlos Correa vs. Gregory Soto, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $3,900
DraftKings = $4,800

Correa has been hot for an even longer stretch, hitting 30-for-96 (.313) with eight home runs and seven doubles across his last 24 games. With so many potent hitters around him, Correa has also been able to rack up 27 RBI and 22 runs scored, putting him on pace for career-bests in both categories.

Others to consider: Jean Segura and Willy Adames

OUTFIELD

MLB Daily Fantasy Baseball Recommendations for 5/15/19

George Springer vs. Gregory Soto, Detroit Tigers
Stadium – Comerica Park
FanDuel = $4,600
DraftKings = $5,800

The Astros insane stats continue with Springer, who is 21-for-43 (.488) with seven home runs across his last 11 games. His price tags on both sites make it difficult to fit him into your budget, but his upside is off the charts with his career .394 wOBA versus lefties.

Shin-soo Choo vs. Jorge Lopez, Kansas City Royals
Stadium – Kauffman Stadium
FanDuel = $3,400
DraftKings = $4,700

Lopez has allowed a .365 wOBA to left-handed hitters for his career, which could prove troublesome against the Rangers left-handed heavy lineup. Choo might not carry the same power upside that some of his teammates do, but he gets on base a ton, so look for him to provide a productive stat line.

Nomar Mazara vs. Jorge Lopez, Kansas City Royals
Stadium – Kauffman Stadium
FanDuel = $2,800
DraftKings = $4,000

Mazara has been unlucky out of the gate with his .255 BABIP being one of the main culprits for his .235 average. His strikeout rate has gone down while his hard-hit rate has increased significantly, so he should turn things around sooner rather than later. With how poorly Lopez has pitched, this could be just what he needs to get back on track.

Others to consider: Austin Meadows and Avisail Garcia
