I’ll start off by saying Reynaldo Lopez is a gas can. On the road this season he holds a 7.28 ERA with a .314 BAA. He also has more trouble striking out lefties, which results an the uptick in walks to them. I’m in love with every single lefty here in no particular order. I will prioritize Choo over everyone. The Rangers are far and away my favorite stack.
2.) Minnesota Twins
Jakob Junis is terrible, can we all agree? At home this season he has posted a 5.68 ERA with a .276 BAA. The thing I love about this matchup is that he cannot get lefties out. With a .302 BAA along with a .522 SLG and a 46.3% hard hit rate, he’s going to get shelled. To go with my favorite plays of the day, I LOVE Eddie Rosario here. He is a left-handed slugger who can pop off for a multi home run game at any moment. Pair him up with Jorge Polanco, Max Kepler and Luis Arraez.
3.) Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox get Trent Thornton coming into town and I think they’re salivating as much as I am. Although Thornton has found success (2.98 ERA) away from Toronto, I think he is going to struggle here. The two main left-handed bats, Andrew Benintendi, is a main target. Thornton has his struggles with left-handed bats, as he is giving up a .262 BAA and a ton of extra base hits. If you can afford it, I would love to employ Benintendi, Martinez and Betts here.
4.) Chicago White Sox
Ariel Jurado is a very confusing pitcher, as he seems to hold his own in Texas and then gets blown up on the road. With the White Sox coming into town, I think that story changes here. Jose Abreu is hands down a Top 3 guy for me on the slate. Against right-handed bats Jurado, has a .330 BAA and a .580 SLG. Eloy Jimenez is also one of my top bats tonight, I think if you don’t want to stack them or need two very strong one-offs, I would take either of them. Abreu > Jimenez.
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.
