Tonight on DraftKings we’ve got a full 15 game MLB slate starting at 7:05. Let’s get after it.Pitchers
Jake Arrieta $12,500 @ SF: Arrieta is arguably one of the best pitchers in baseball right now. On the season he has a WHIP under 1, and averages over 9 K/9. Going into San Fran a pitcher’s ball park, chalk him up in your Double Ups and 50/50s on DraftKings.
Stephen Strasburg $10,000 vs SD: Probably more of a tournament play because you always face the risk of a *insert random body part* injury in the 3rd inning, but the K/9 is there, and the SD offense isn’t exactly scary.Catcher
Dioner Navarro $2,900: With Russell Martin on the shelf, this price in the middle of the Jays lineup is a great value. Should hit about 6th in the lineup projected for 4.82 runs in the warm Texas air.
Travis D’Arnaud $4,500: If you want to spend up at catcher, D’Arnaud is a good look. Jerome Williams is poo poo, and the Mets are always ready to put up 29381 runs in a game nowadays.First Base
Victor Martinez $3,200: Hell of a price for someone in the middle of the lineup against Jered Weaver. Good to catch him on the left side too.
Carlos Santana $3,800: Santana should hit 4th for the tribe, and you always want to catch him hitting from the left side. With Kipnis, Lindor, and Brantley hitting in front of him, he should have plenty of opportunities with runners on base. Santana leads the Tribe with RBI’s with RISP and 2 outs.Second Base
Jason Kipnis $4,300: Fresh off the DL and healthy, Kipnis is back at the top of the lineup for the Tribe projected for 4.3 runs today against Willy Peralta.
Daniel Murphy $4,000: $4k for a guy at the top of the Mets lineup against the poo poo Jerome Williams… need I say more. Gets a nice R/L match up tonight.
Enrique (Kike) Hernandez $2,600: Should be in the #2 hole for the Dodgers tonight in Cincy. Price is too good to pass up when he gets some PT. John Lamb might be a pitcher to pick on tonight.
Troy Tulowitzki $4,600: 4.6k isn’t a bad price to pay for Tulo at the top of the Jays lineup in one of the best hitters parks this time of year in Arlington. Derek Holland is still fresh off the injury and is surely good for a blow up game in one of his first few starts while he figures it out. Did I mention he hits lead off for the Blue Jays?Third Base
Adrian Beltre $4,200: Buehrle got lit up in his last start and is pitching in a tough park tonight. He’s a guy that pitches to contact, especially when his own offense puts up 8 runs. Decent price for Beltre a guy who can definitely give a 2 HR night in that ball park.
David Wright $4,300: After going 2-5 with a dinger in his return last night, why not give him another shot today against Jerome Williams. Make sure he’s in the lineup, I know they talked about him playing sparingly to start his return. His price will only go up from here on out.Outfield
Colby Rasmus $3,200: For the same reasons we mentioned last night, I like the lefties in the Astros lineup at Yankee stadium. We know they hit the most dingers in the bigs by quite a wide margin, and no better place for a lefty than Yankee stadium tonight against the righty Nova
Bryce Harper $5,100: Shields gives up almost a homer per start, and he’s not throwing in the friendly Petco park. Let’s hope Bryce can get the 1 dinger that Shields is bound to give up each game.
David Murphy $2,800: Hitting 4th in the Angels lineup projected for 4.8 runs tonight against Alfredo Simon in Detroit. He’s not good. Give Calhoun/Trout a look too, but 2.8k for the 4 hole here is a good spot for Murphy.
Ben Paulsen $3,000: Another good value play in the middle of the Colorado lineup in Atlanta. Went 2-3 last night with a HR. He can stay hot against Foltynewicz at a great 3k value.
Scott Van Slyke $2,700: OF seems like the place where you can save some money tonight. At 2.7k I like SVS in the middle of the lineup against John Lamb in Cincy.
Kyle Schwarber $4,200: The power in Schwarber’s bat is the one that can get a ball out in San Fran tonight, or maybe just pepper the wall in right a few times. Matt Cain’s not a good pitcher. Right handed starting pitchers have an ERA over 6 the last 30 days.
We put together a nice winner last night, so good luck again tonight Fam.
