9/2 MLB DFS Winner: Adalberto Mondesi
As Wes Anderson chose him on our Premium Gold Cheatsheet as a value shortstop, Adalberto Mondesi was a dominant player against the Baltimore pitching staff. Mondesi went 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Mondesi is not a slugging percentage guy as last night’s box score shows. He is a prototypical shortstop, a good fielder with good contact. Expect him to continue to slap singles throughout September and finish with around a .285 batting average.
9/2 MLB DFS Winner: Daniel Vogelbach
This is from the Premium Gold Hitter Projection Model, where you can compare hitters on the slate and it is available for all premium members to access. Daniel Vogelbach had a ridiculously low value on the slate against the Texas Rangers and he showed up. Vogelbach went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, three runs and two walks.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Vogelbach has been on a serious cold streak as of late so it was great to see him look like he broke out of it. He’s a homer shy of 30 for the year and is arguably the best position player that remained on the Mariners team this season. He has a .234 BABIP, which stinks for him, but he should be able to get that up about 10-15 points before the season ends.
9/2 MLB DFS Winner: J.A. Happ
This screenshot is from the Pitcher Projection Model, available for all premium members to access. Happ was a bottom-tier pitcher on the slate but was one of the best performers against Oakland at Yankee Stadium. He finished with six shutout innings allowing just one hit and four walks with five strikeouts.
Outlook for the rest of the season: This is a little too late for Happ, who is in the midst of a bad year. If you jumped on him on the slate, then you got great value. He is playing for a playoff team and is a solid pitcher in September so he can be a good DFS player for the rest of the regular season.
9/2 MLB DFS Winner: Tampa Bay Rays Offense
The Tampa Bay Rays had a big weekend series against the Cleveland Indians and their bats showed up. They went up against Adam Plutko and ended up with eight runs and 14 hits and drew four walks while only striking out five times the entire game.
Outlook for the rest of the season: After last night, the Rays sit 0.5 games ahead of Cleveland for the first Wild Card spot and there are four teams in the race for the two Wild Card spots. The Rays are getting healthy while Cleveland is playing with a lot of significant injuries. Expect the bats to continue to be hot.
