8/26 MLB DFS Pitching Picks



We have a small seven game slate for tonight, and it is full of poo-poo on a stick on this 8/26 MLB DFS slate.

Sonny Gray vs. Miami Marlins

$11,300 FD / $11,200 DK

Most days for DFS purposes it’s a good idea to attack the Marlins, and this 8/26 DFS MLB slate is no different. The Marlins are striking out 25.5 percent of time versus RHPs while being 30th in MLB in both .wOBA (.280), and wRC+ at 73. Sonny has been anything but Gray as of late, allowing only one earned run over his last four starts while striking out 34 batters over 24 innings. On a small slate with little to choose from he is by far the top option tonight.

Dustin May vs. San Diego Padres

$6,200 FD / $8,500 DK

Before I even start, the salary difference here makes this a much better play on FanDuel than DraftKings. On this 8/26 MLB DFS slate there is little choice as far as taking some risks are concerned, so why not gamble on attacking the Padres? San Diego is running a race for last place in MLB facing RHPs just topping the Marlins and Tigers. They are striking out an incredible 26.6 percent of the time versus righties, and over the last seven days are batting a pathetic .180 with a wRC+ of 46. Although May got touched up by the Braves in his last start, in his previous start he dominated the Marlins striking out five hitters over 5 1/3 innings and allowing one earned run.

Jason Vargas vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

$6,800 FD / $7,900 DK

There was a time where attacking the Pirates with a lefty was not generally a good idea. That was the past and this 8/26 MLB DFS slate is the here and now. The truth is the Pirates are 30th in MLB facing LHPs boasting a whopping wRC+ of 78. The problem is they only strike out 19.2 percent of the time, which could make the K upside tonight a bit dicey. Vargas has a home ERA of 2.95 as opposed to the high 5.23 ERA on the road. Over his last two starts facing the Padres and Cubs at home he has allowed four earned runs over 11 2/3 with a sad strikeout total of five. The upside is low, but the choices are limited. I would take a shot here as an SP2 on DK, or GPP on FD.

Pablo Lopez vs. Cincinnati Reds

$8,200 FD / $7,400 DK

If you really want to take a chance on this 8/26 MLB DFS slate, perhaps Lopez is for you. Just be warned he may be on a pitch count tonight. The Reds strike out 25.4 percent of the time versus RHPs with a low wRC+ of 89 and with Lopez having a home ERA over four points lower, in GPPs I would take a shot here with low expectations. Keep in mind the Reds tagged him the last time he faced him and on a bigger slate he would not even make this article.
