9/4 MLB DFS Winner: Jack Flaherty
As Jason chose him in our Premium Gold Cheatsheet as a value pitcher, Jack Flaherty dominated the San FranciscoGiants. Flaherty went eight shutout innings, allowing just a single base hit with a walk and eight strikeouts.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Jack Flaherty has been one of the best pitchers in MLB in his last seven games. In that span, he has a 0.59 ERA in 46 innings, while allowing less than a hit every two innings. He has pitched like an ace in 2019 and has not shown any signs of slowing down. Expect Jack Flaherty to continue this excellence throughout September.
9/4 MLB DFS Winner: Whit Merrifield
Another value pick by Jason, this time at the second base slot, Whit Merrifield had a good day at the plate against the Detroit Tigers. Merrifield went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Merrifield is having a great season on a largely mediocre Royals team. He upped his average to .302 for the year and is able to play anywhere on the field. He will be a huge asset for an up-and-coming Kansas City team with a great contract. Expect Whit Merrifield to continue to get on base as he ranks in the Top 50 in OBP.
9/4 MLB DFS Winner: Adam Frazier
Here is a screenshot of all the second basemen listed on our Hitter Projection Model, available for all premium users. Adam Frazier was one of the more expensive second basemen on the slate, but he delivered against the Miami Marlins, going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI from the leadoff spot.
Outlook for the rest of the season: Incredibly this is a down year batting-wise for Frazier compared to last year. The Pittsburgh Pirates are having a down year as a whole but Fraizer, in the leadoff spot with nine HRs and 41 RBI and a .335 OBP is solid. He is in the midst of a hot streak, so expect him to ride this out for a while and build momentum into 2020.
9/4 MLB DFS Winner: Washington Nationals Offense
The Washington Nationals had an incredible ending to their game last night against the New York Mets. The team combined for 11 runs on 15 hits with three walks and added a stolen base as well. Kurt Suzuki (2-for-5, 4 RBI) and Juan Soto (3-for-4, 3 RBI) each hit a home run as well.
Outlook for the rest of the season: The Washington Nationals have superb starting pitching, only comparable to Houston. They don’t need to ask their offense for much on a given night. The team averages 5.31 runs a game and have scored the third-most runs in the National League behind the Dodgers and Braves. It may be difficult for the Nats to compete for the N.L. East but expect them to continue to win down the stretch and secure the top Wild Card spot.
