With a doubleheader between the Giants and Rockies, we had an 11-game slate on Monday July 15. All DFS MLB points and price values are based off DraftKings.
DFS MLB Winners
Travis d’Arnaud ($3,600)
Travis d’Arnaud had a career night against the New York Yankees. He went 3-for-5 with three home runs, five RBI, three runs and two walks from the leadoff spot in the order. Travis d’Arnaud should be in your lineup today as well.
Travis d’Arnaud did something extremely rare last night: he became the fifth player to hit three home runs and reach base five times against the Yankees. The other four were Mo Vaughn (1997), Ken Griffey Jr (1996), Pat Mullin (1949) and Carl Reynolds (1930). In addition to making history, d’Arnaud is hitting an outstanding .480 in his last seven games. Make sure to have him in your lDFS MLB ineup today as the Rays face off against CC Sabathia.
Miles Mikolas ($8,000)
Miles Mikolas was unquestionably the best pitcher on the slate last night against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He finished with a complete game shutout and allowed eight hits while recording three strikeouts and picked up his sixth victory. To say this type of performance was needed would be an understatement.
In his past seven starts, Mikolas has a 2-4 record with a 3.69 ERA with more than a hit per inning. Mikolas hits the mound again on Saturday in Cincinnati against the Reds. With the price tag increasing with a performance like last night’s, you can find someone for better DFS MLB value to put up similar results.
DFS MLB Losers
Zach Eflin ($8,200)
Zach Eflin had a rough outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers as he went six innings and gave up seven runs on nine hits with a walk and five strikeouts in a losing effort. The Dodgers have one of the best lineups in all of baseball, but Eflin should not be in your lineup during his next start.
Eflin has been struggling as of late and last night was no different. In his past seven games, he is 2-4 with a 6.02 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP. His next scheduled start is Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has been pitching poorly so fade Eflin in that DFS MLB matchup.
Luke Voit ($4,300)
Luke Voit struggled last night against the Tampa Bay Rays as he went hitless in five at-bats with three strikeouts, including the game-ending K. He isn’t providing much at the plate, watching too many pitches inside the zone instead of fouling off a pitcher’s pitch. Until Voit looks more comfortable at the plate, avoid using him in your lineups.
In his three games since returning from the Injured List, he is 2-for-12 with seven strikeouts. He looks completely lost at the plate and looks like a prime candidate for a day off. The Yankees continue their series with the Tampa Bay Rays and Voit should be avoided in DFS MLB until he looks more comfortable in the batter’s box.
Luis Severino and Dellin Betances both began their throwing programs on Monday with 25 throws from 60 feet each. Neither has appeared in a game this season.
The Los Angeles Dodgers placed outfielder Chris Taylor on the 10-day IL with a fractured left forearm. He was hit by a Heath Hembree fastball in the 11th inning on Sunday night against the Red Sox.
