DFS Hitters for 5/17 – Bellinger, Brantley and More

Published

on

Another Friday, another monster MLB schedule with all 30 teams in action and on the DFS main slate. While there are plenty of ways to go, below are the top bats at each position for Friday’s loaded schedule.

Catcher – Gary Sanchez vs. Ryan Stanek

FanDuel: $4,200 DraftKings: $5,100

The Yankees’ slugger enters play on Friday seeing the ball really well. Gary Sanchez has a 1.200 OPS over his last seven days and a 1.126 OPS over the last 14. Getting to play at home, where he has a 1.065 OPS this season, should help the catcher continue to play well on Friday.

First Base – Freddie Freeman vs. Jhoulys Chacin

FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $4,600

After homering on Thursday night, Freddie Freeman will look to stay hot on Friday against Jhoulys Chacin. If the past predicts the future, he will do just that. In his career, the Braves’ first baseman is 5-for-13 with three extra-base hits against Chacin.

Second Base – Eric Sogard vs. Ivan Nova

FanDuel: $3,300 DraftKings: $4,400

The White Sox’s Ivan Nova has struggled with left-handed bats this season. The righty starter is allowing a .418 wOBA and a 35.2% hard contact rate to lefties. Eric Sogard should be able to take advantage of this matchup. He has a .415 wOBA and a .246 ISO versus righties in 2019.

Third Base – Alex Bregman vs. Rick Porcello

FanDuel: $4,500 DraftKings: $5,300

Over the last week, Alex Bregman has homered four times. Do not be surprised to see him go yard again on Friday. Boston’s Rick Porcello has a 41.8% flyball rate to go along with a 1.65 HR/9 allowed this season.

Shortstop –Adalberto Mondesi vs. Matt Harvey

FanDuel: $4,200 DraftKings: $5,000

The Angels’ Matt Harvey has had a difficult time with left-handed batters this season. He has allowed a .398 wOBA, 57.4% hard contact rate and 2.16 HR/9 versus lefties in 2019. With Mondesi owning a .231 ISO against right-handed pitching, it is easy to see the path to success for the Royals’ shortstop.

Outfield – Cody Bellinger vs. Anthony DeSclafini

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

The Reds’ Anthony DeSclafini has been bad versus left-handed bats in 2019. He is allowing a .380 wOBA and a 44.2% hard contact rate to lefty sticks. This plays well into the hands of Cody Bellinger. The Dodgers’ slugger has a .423 ISO and .554 wOBA against righties.

Outfield – Michael Brantley vs.  Rick Porcello

FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $5,200

The Red Sox’s Rick Porcello has had his hands full with left-handed batters in 2019 with a .405 wOBA allowed. The Astros’ Michael Brantley will look to take advantage with his .279 ISO versus right-handed pitchers.

Outfield – Joc Pederson vs. Anthony DeSclafini

FanDuel: $3,100 Draftkings: $5,000

Anthony DeSclafani has been hit hard by lefties in 2019. He has surrendered a 44.2% hard contact rate to left-handed bats. Look for Joc Pederson to hit a ball or two hard in this one. He has a .440 ISO versus righties.

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.
