9/10 MLB DFS Winner: Zack Greinke
As Jason had him in our Premium Gold Cheatsheet as a value pitcher, Greinke was pretty good against the Oakland Athletics, going six shutout innings with two hits and five strikeouts. He also lowered his combined season ERA to 2.99.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Zack Greinke has been a solid pickup since the Astros acquired him at the Trade Deadline. Since joining Houston, he is 5-1 with a 3.32 ERA in seven starts. Expect Greinke to continue being a solid starting pitcher as he gets ready for the ALDS and potentially beyond.
9/10 MLB DFS Winner: Nicholas Castellanos
Another solid choice by Jason on the Cheatsheet was Nicholas Castellanos for the Chicago Cubs. Facing off against the San Diego Padres, Castellanos went 3-for-5 with a homer, a couple of RBI and three runs scored.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Castellanos has been En Fuego since joining a playoff contender in Chicago. Since August 1 (when he was traded from the Tigers) he has a .364 BABIP and a 1.056 OPS. Not to mention he has yet to commit an error since the trade while playing both corner outfield spots. Expect Castellanos to continue to rake down the final stretch.
9/10 MLB DFS Winner: Trent Grisham
Here is a screenshot of the 25 cheapest outfielders on our Hitter Projection Model, available for all premium users. Trent Grisham batted leadoff against the Miami Marlins yesterday and went 5-for-6 with a double, triple, two RBI and two runs.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Grisham is almost at 100 at-bats for the season and is at .260 wth four HRs and 13 RBI. Getting Grisham some plate appearances in the stretch run could pay dividends for the Brewers as a potential bench piece on a playoff roster.
9/10 MLB DFS Winner: Houston Astros Offense
For the second night in a row, the Houston Astros had an offensive explosion. Against the Oakland Athletics, the team combined for 15 runs on 17 hits with a pair of walks and reached on a throwing error. Robinson Chirinos went 3-for-4 with two homers and six RBI while Jose Altuve went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBI.
Outlook for the rest of the season: The Houston Astros continue to dominate in all facets of the game. This is back-to-back incedible offensive performances throughout the lineup. Houston looks serious to try and own the best record in baseball for home-field advantage throughout the postseason.
