DFS Winners and Losers: Smoak and Mirrors



We had a full 15-game DFS slate on Sunday June 30. All points and dollar amounts are based on DraftKings.

DFS Winners

Justin Smoak ($3,700)

Justin Smoak had a solid game against the Kansas City Royals yesterday, going 2-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and two runs scored. He came off the DL with a bang.

Smoak’s DFS Outlook

Justin Smoak needed a game like he had yesterday after a layoff dating back to mid-June. The Blue Jays continue their series against the Royals and Glenn Sparkman has given up seven homers in his last four starts. If Smoak performs well again today you may have to keep him on DFS radar as he can provide DFS production in bunches.

Kevin Pillar ($3,700)

Pillar had one of his best games of the season. He finished 4-for-5 with a double, home run, five RBI and two runs scored. He upped his batting average to .240 while being in the bottom-third of the Giants’ lineup. Pillar should be in your DFS lineup for today’s slate.

Pillar’s DFS Outlook

Kevin Pillar isn’t known as a prolific DFS hitter but is batting .293 in his past 15 games. The Giants continue their series against the Padres. Pillar has similar lefty/righty splits but has more power against lefty pitchers. The Padres are using rookie Logan Allen so look for Pillar to get a few hits.

DFS Losers

Robbie Ray ($10,000)

Robbie Ray did not have his best stuff yesterday against the San Francisco Giants. He threw just four innings and gave up four runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts. He struggled throughout the entire game, throwing 83 pitches. Fade Robbie Ray in DFS into the All-Star break and hope he corrects his mistakes.

Ray’s DFS Outlook

Ray hasn’t been right throughout the month of June. He has posted a quality start in four of his six starts, but has a 1-4 record and 5.00 ERA. He is able to eat up innings but has not really been too productive in those starts as of late. Ray has 11 walks in his previous three starts, so control has been an issue as well. His next DFS start is Sunday afternoon against the Colorado Rockies. Fade Ray and see how he comes back in the second half of the season.

Michael Chavis ($10,500)

Michael Chavis did not have a good game in London against the New York Yankees. He went hitless in five at-bats with three strikeouts. He also struggled in the field, committing two errors at first base. Look for Chavis to get it going in DFS when he’s on the field next.

Chavis’ DFS Outlook

Chavis had difficulties offensively and defensively. The makeshift field was a little bizzare for MLB players who are creatures of habit. Chavis is still hitting .294 with four home runs and 14 RBI in his previous 15 games. The only blemish is the 24 strikeouts in the same span. The Red Sox get an off-day before traveling to Toronto to face the Blue Jays. Trent Thornton is coming off a rocky start and I do not expect him to make a recovery here so start Chavis in DFS .

DFS Injury Update

Luis Severino of the New York Yankees has been shut down from his throwing program for a second time after feeling something in his right lat again. General manager Brian Cashman said Severino feels 90 percent right now and will continue to rehab once he feels fully healthy.

David Robertson of the Philadelphia Phillies threw 20 fastballs and a few changeups off a mound on Sunday. Robertson is currently on the 60-day IL and is eyeing a late July return.

The St. Louis Cardinals announced Marcell Ozuna, who was placed on the IL on Saturday after injuring his fingers diving back on a pickoff attempt, has small fractures at the base of his third and fourth fingers on his right hand.
