There are a lot of great spots for bats in 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting so I will help narrow it down to my favorite high end and value bats. I’ve purposely left out Coors Field bats since we already know the drill there. Play them if you can get to them.
Max Kepler ($4,400 FD). Kepler has a 0.295 ISO against Righties this season and will likely be batting leadoff for a team with implied run total approaching seven. He has faced Sparkman seven times and has hit the ball hard off of him including a home run.
Jorge Polanco ($3,700 FD). Jorge Polanco is next on my 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting list with a 0.242 ISO against right handing pitching this season and gets the same advantage as Kepler with the Kansas City bullpen. Not only is Glenn Sparkman a below average starting Major League pitcher, the bullpen tgives up 39.5% hard contact.
Cavan Biggio ($3,600 FD). Biggio gets a nice 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting matchup today against the O’s tonight. I like all of the “kids” from Toronto because they get my three favorite things in a matchup. They get the ballpark upgrade, guaranteed ninth inning at bats, and a weak bullpen. Biggio has a 0.246 ISO facing left handed pitching and Brooks gives up 42.6% hard contact and a 0.268 ISO to lefties.
Toronto is my favorite stack of the night with Minnesota being a very close second. There are many ways to go with pitching tonight so you can fit multiple high end bats in your 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting lineups tonight
Top Value Bats:
Yasiel Puig ($2,900 FD). Puig will get to face lefty Dillion Peters tonight and will likely bat cleanup. He has a 0.212 ISO against lefties and Peters gives up 42.9% hard contact and gives up a 0.289 ISO to righties. If I am paying up for pitching tonight, I am looking to the other value bats from this lineup as well. Franmil Reyes ($2,800 FD) and Jordan Luplow ($2,500 FD) also hit lefties hard and should do some damage as 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting Picks.
Eloy Jimenez ($2,800 FD). Jimenez has a 0.227 ISO against lefties and gets a matchup with Jason Vargas in a hitter’s park. Vargas throws his changeup 40% of the time and Jimenez has 0.250 ISO against that pitch type. Look for him to take one out of the park tonight.
