DFS Hitting Picks – 5/3

Published

on

With a full slate of MLB games on tap for today, this most certainly will be a fun Friday. To make it even more enjoyable (and profitable) let’s go around the horn and identify the top DFS plays for May 3rd.

Catcher – Yasmani Grandal vs. Steven Matz

FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,300

Yasmani Grandal has crushed left-handed pitching all season long. The catcher owns a .296 ISO and a .467 wOBA versus lefties. Expect more of the same on Friday. The Mets’ Matz is throwing his sinker 62% of the time, while Grandal owns a .417 batting average against the pitch this season. Matz has been hit hard this season, with a 42.7% hard contact rate, so the catcher has a good shot at hitting one of those sinkers a long way.

First Base – Christian Walker vs. Tyler Anderson

FanDuel: $4,500 DraftKings: $5,500

When a game is played in Colorado you can expect a lot of runs scored, so it would make sense to load up on players from this game. And Walker is certainly one you will want to get a piece of. The first baseman has a .200 ISO against left-handed pitching, while Anderson is allowing a 3.24 HR/9 in 2019.

Second Base – Brandon Lowe vs. Dan Straily

FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,800

The Orioles’ Dan Straily is one of the worst pitchers on the slate with a 6.38 SIERA, 53.5% flyball rate and a 3.38 HR/9 allowed. And so of course, you will want to get some Rays’ action on Friday. And there may not be a better Tampa player to target than Brandon Lowe. The second baseman has a .269 ISO and 153 wRC+ versus right-handed pitching this season.

Third Base – Nolan Arenado vs. Robbie Ray

FanDuel: $4,900 DraftKings: $5,500

Despite his hefty price tag, Nolan Arenado is probably worth every penny and more on Friday. The third baseman enters play tonight having homered five times in his last seven games and now gets to go home to Coors Field. While playing in the thin Colorado air, Arenado will face a lefty. Against left-handed pitching this season the Rockies’ slugger has a .469 ISO. And if that is not enough, the lefty he is facing, Robbie Ray, is a guy he has dominated in the past. In 31 career at-bats against Ray, Arenado has 11 hits, seven for extra bases. Three of those extra base knocks left the yard.

Shortstop – Trevor Story vs. Robbie Ray

FanDuel: $4,800 DraftKings: $5,600

The Rockies’ shortstop should be just fine on Friday. He has had good success against lefties in his career and that has continued this season. In 2019 Story has a .427 wOBA versus southpaws.

Outfield – Joey Gallo vs. Trent Thornton

FanDuel: $4,500 DraftKings: $5,500

You want to attack the Blue Jays’ Trent Thornton with left-handed bats. He has allowed 2.57 HR/9 to lefties this season. That plays pretty well into Joey Gallo’s strength. The Rangers’ slugger has a .441 ISO and a .461 wOBA against righties in 2019.

Outfield – Mookie Betts vs. Reynaldo Lopez

FanDuel: $4,700 DraftKings: $5,100

Mookie Betts has reached base multiple times in eight straight contests and that should continue again on Friday. The Red Sox’s outfielder has a .446 wOBA and a 180 wRC+ against right-handed pitching this season. It also helps that the righty he will be facing, Reynaldo Lopez, happens to throw his fastball more than 60% of the time. Betts owns a .389 batting average against that pitch this season.

Outfield – Cody Bellinger vs. Eric Lauer

FanDuel: $5,100 Draftkings: $5,800

While this is not the most hitter-friendly ballpark, Cody Bellinger will be just fine on Friday. He will be facing a lefty in Eric Lauer and Bellinger just so happens to own a 1.050 OPS versus southpaws in 2019.

After participating in season-long fantasy baseball for over two and a half decades, Wes shifted his focus to the DFS grind. He has shared from his experiences and began his MLB DFS-writing career at FanRag.com in 2013. There he provided a deep analysis inside the numbers of matchups as well as winning FanDuel lineups. The cash game grinder has also done work with Razzball and is excited to help the Win Daily family get into the green.
