The 8/15 MLB DFS slate is lacking in the pitching department, to say the least, especially when you get to the main schedule options. But you have to start a pitcher or two on this 8/15 MLB DFS slate, so here are four pitching suggestions from Win Daily Sports.

Walker Buehler vs. Miami Marlins
DraftKings – $10,700 FanDuel – $11,800
You may have to play the 8/15 MLB DFS all-day schedule just so you can get a piece of Walker Buehler. He easily is the top pitching option for the day. He has a 3.08 ERA and a 29.1% K% in 2019. And he faces a Marlins’ offense that has a .237 batting average, .123 ISO and 25% K% against right-handed pitching this season. Expect a big performance from the Dodgers’ Buehler today.
Sonny Gray vs. St. Louis Cardinals
DraftKings – $9,100 FanDuel – $9,800
Sonny Gray has been locked in over the last 30 days. In that time he has a 2.08 ERA and a 9.49 K/9 while holding the opposition to a .171 batting average. The Reds’ hurler should keep it going on this 8/15 MLB DFS slate as the Cardinals are not a big threat against right-handed pitching. The St. Louis offense has a .159 ISO and a .305 wOBA versus righties in 2019.
Yu Darvish vs. Philadelphia Phillies
DraftKings – $9,700 FanDuel – $9,400
The Cubs’ Yu Darvish has a 28.6% K% this season and has started to settle in as the guy the organization thought they were getting when he landed his monster contract as a free agent. While this is not the best of matchups for Darvish, the Cubs’ right-hander will be an okay option on this 8/15 MLB DFS slate if he can avoid surrendering too many long balls, which has been an Achilles heel of his. He is allowing 1.77 HR/9 in 2019. But with the Phillies owning just a .170 ISO versus righties this season, you can gamble that Darvish can keep the ball in the field of play on Thursday.
Andrew Heaney vs. Chicago White Sox
DraftKings – $9,000 FanDuel – $6,400
It may not be a terrible plan to punt pitching on this 8/15 MLB DFS schedule. If that is the approach you end up taking, the Angels’ Andrew Heaney should get some consideration on FanDuel. The right-hander has some strikeout potential with a 26.9% K%, while the White Sox are being punched out at a 26.4% clip by righties this season.
The Cubs’ Yu Darvish has a strikeout prop at 6.5 for his matchup with the Phillies. The over is in play here. In four of his last five games, Darvish has reached at least seven strikeouts.
