We had 13 games on Friday June 5 for DFS purposes. All prices and point values are based off DraftKings.
Dylan Bundy ($8,100)
Dylan Bundy had a strong performance last night against the division-rival Toronto Blue Jays. He went 6.2 innings and allowed one run on three hits with two walks and six strikeouts while picking up the victory. With the performance, he lowered his ERA to 4.65. He is too inconsistent to lock him in on the next DFS slate.
Bundy’s DFS Outlook
Bundy had one of his best starts of the season last night, but these outings do not come enough for him to be worthwhile in DFS. He has a 1.30 WHIP on the season. Bundy should be slated to pitch against the Tampa Bay Rays in his next outing after the All-Star break. Until Bundy is able to put a number of decent starts together, fade him.
Jonathan Schoop ($3,700)
Jonathan Schoop had a solid game at the dish, going 3-for-5 with a homer, two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored against the Texas Rangers. He is now at .260 with 14 HRs and 38 RBI. Lock in Schoop in today’s DFS slate as well.
Schoop’s DFS Outlook
Schoop has been locked in during his previous 15 games played. His stats during that span are: .302 average with two home runs, five RBI and eight runs. Obviously those numbers are skewed with yesterday’s game but he is making good contact and getting on base. The Twins continue their series with the Rangers this afternoon and Schoop should be in your DFS lineup.
Justin Verlander ($12,000)
Justin Verlander did not have his A+ stuff last night against the Angels. He went seven innings and gave up four runs on seven hits with a walk and six strikeouts. Three of those hits left the ballpark and upped his ERA to 2.98. He still is pitching incredibly well this season and isn’t a worry for his next DFS start.
Verlander’s DFS Outlook
Verlander didn’t have a terrible game, but with his price tag, he needed to be more productive. His next appearance will be against either the Rangers or the Angels, depending on how the team lines up their rotation. Both opposing lineups shouldn’t cause Verlander much trouble so he is a go for DFS players.
Tommy Pham ($4,000)
Pham went hitless in his six at-bats with three strikeouts last night in the extra inning loss against the New York Yankees. He left 10 runners on base durng his at-bats, which was the most of any player on the slate. The All-Star break couldn’t be coming soon enough for him as he should be faded in DFS.
Pham’s DFS Outlook
Pham isn’t hitting the ball as of late, with just three hits in his previous seven games. A lot of the Rays have hit a wall offensively and Pham is one of the most prominent of them. The Rays continue their series against the Yankees this afternoon but should be passed on during today’s DFS slate.
The Detroit Tigers placed Victor Alcantara on the 10-day IL with wisdom tooth extraction.
The Arizona Diamondbacks placed David Peralta on the 10-day IL retroactive to July 4 with right AC joint inflammation.
