Paddack has had a few shaky starts recently, but I see him righting the ship here. He really excels at getting right-handers to strike out, so it makes me even want to play him more. Against right-handed bats he holds a 12 K/9 and a .171 BAA. The only bat I’m ever worried about in this lineup is Brandon Belt, but even then I don’t care. Paddack has shown the insane upside he holds and he is my lock and load SP1.
Patrick Corbin @ Chicago White Sox
DraftKings $10,300, FanDuel $10,300
I don’t know what has been wrong with Corbin, but I’ll gladly go back to him in this matchup. The White Sox, as we all know, strike out with the best of them. As Corbin doesn’t have amazing strikeout numbers against right-handed bats this season, we all know his potential. Against right-handed bats he has a 8.7 K/9 and a 13.97 K/9 to left handed bats. The upside and potential is there, if he returns to form in this outing he could break the slate.
Dakota Hudson @ Miami Marlins
DraftKings $6,200, FanDuel $8,000
As a pitcher who struggles a ton against left-handed bats, he handles right-handed bats pretty well. Against right-handed bats on the road he holds a .136 BAA and a 6.75 K/9. I know this isn’t a major upside play, but it’s a good spot to get contrarian and to get to those Coors bats. This is my favorite “spend down” of the day. (DraftKings Only as SP2.)
Spencer Turnbull @ Kansas City Royals
DraftKings $8,600, FanDuel $7,800
For one, Turnbull has shut down the Royals this year. He has only allowed three earned runs in 13 innings with 17 strikeouts. This is the upside and security I want in my cash games. On the road this season, Turnbull is pitching to a 2.86 ERA with a 9.47 K/9 to right-handed bats. The Royals aren’t the worst team in the league in terms of strikeouts, but we have seen Turnbull can dig them out of this lineup.
Won the FanDuel, 11K MLB Pickoff Single Entry Tournament in May of 2019. Started playing MLB DFS a couple years ago and have found success as mainly a cash game player. After playing season-long fantasy for five years I decided to give DFS a shot and have never looked back. Grinding all year around with MLB, NBA and NFL.
