the Orioles’ Dylan Bundy seems like a great start to a winning DFS lineup. The
right-handed starter has a 4.46 SIERA this season as well as a 45.4% flyball
rate. Bundy also is allowing 2.14 HR/9, which highest on the slate. Look for
the Yankees to take advantage of this matchup as the Pinstripes have a team ISO
of .200 against righties this season.
build has to start with Gary Sanchez (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $5,600). The catcher
is red hot and that should continue on Thursday. As Sanchez is raking against
righties this season. He owns a .392 ISO and a .413 wOBA against them. You can
build around Sanchez with a combination of Gleyber Torres (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings:
$5,400), Brett Gardner (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,500), Luke Voit (FanDuel:
$4,100 DraftKings: $5,100) and Clint Frazier (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,500)
as well. Each of those four Yankees’ hitters have .220-plus ISOs against
right-handed pitching in 2019.
The Nationals’ offense has found a lot of success against left-handed
pitching in 2019. They have a .207 ISO and a .358 wOBA versus southpaws. Look
for that good fortune to continue today against the Mets’ Steven Matz.
When building your Nationals stack, you will want to start the construction with Anthony Rendon (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $5,700). The infielder has crushed lefties this season. He has a .462 ISO and a .515 wOBA versus them. But also, he is killing the sinker this season. Rendon has a 1.440 SLG against that pitch this season, while Matz has relied on that pitch type 61.6% of the time this season.
You also need to consider Trea Turner (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $4,800). The speedster has a career .308 BAA versus the sinker and also have an ISO of .333 versus lefties in 2019. Juan Soto (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $4,800), Brian Dozier (FanDuel: $2,500 DraftKings: $3,600), Victor Robles (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,300) and Howie Kendrick (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,800) should all be considered as well. Each of those Nationals’ hitters have .200-plus ISOs against left-handed pitching in 2019.
Tampa Bay Rays
Cleveland’s Adam Plutko is a guy you will want to attack. In his career he has allowed a 2.40 HR/9 and has a 5.46 xFIP. So, feel free to load up on Rays. Guys like Austin Meadows (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,600), Ji-Man Choi (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $3,900) and Brandon Lowe (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,200) should be your main targets, as they all have wOBAs greater than .340 against right-handed pitching.
