Trey Mancini, Bos vs. Bal
DK ($5,300) FD ($4,600)
I can see Mancini homering tonight, whether it’s against Sale or at the end of the game after the Red Sox are up by 10. Mancini homered last night and comes into this game batting .318 over his last seven games and .333 with four homers in the month of June. I am not saying Baltimore will be on the bases a lot, i’m just saying if anyone can turn into one tonight, it’s Mancini, and at a price of 4,600 on FanDuel, he should be very low owned. Also, Mancini owns a .364 BA in 23 at-bats against Sale.
Brock Holt, Bos at Bal
DK ($3,900) FD ($2,500)
Holt was the man last night, including the second inning homer, every at-bat was beautiful against the struggling Orioles bullpen. If Holt makes the lineup tonight, which I believe he will, count on some solid production against Dylan Bundy. Holt owns a .643 BA against Bundy in 16 at-bats. This includes three doubles and one home run. Holt is my play of the day at such reasonable pricing. Don’t count on getting him at low ownership, though.
Todd Frazier, Nym vs. Stl
DK ($4,200) FD ($2,800)
Frazier has two prior homers against opposing pitcher Micheal Wacha. He has had his problems this season with a 5.62 ERA but has pitched great in the month of June (two games played/one start) with no runs allowed over 8.1 innings pitched. Over this span, Wacha has allowed a .241 opposing BA. But this is what I like to call regression day. Wacha could very well revert to his normal self against a Mets team that has the potential to really do some damage. If stacking this team, only stack right-handed batters. Wacha has reverse splits and over a three-year average those reverse splits stay pretty consistent. He’s allowed a .280 BA with 26 homers to opposing righties, while only allowing a .248 BA to opposing lefties with 15 homers. The Mets are favored at -145 with an 8.5 under/over.
Trea Turner, Ari @ Wsh **Early**
DK ($5,400) FD ($4,200)
I love all of the Washington bats today as they set to face Tyler Clarke. He has a 5.26 ERA and a 5.66 road ERA. Clarke is allowing big numbers to opposing righties, as they’re hitting .304 against him with two homers in 46 at-bats. Clarke has really struggled lately, allowing a 7.02 ERA over his last four starts. Trea Turner will lead things off and should benefit off runs, RBI, and stolen bases as well as the potential long ball. This is my early slate upside play and I am very confident in a solid floor as well.
Bryce Harper, Atl vs. Phi
DK ($4,200) FD ($4,000)
Bryce Harper owns a .333 BA in 13 at-bats against Sean Newcomb. Harper has been a little off, as he’s only batting .255 so far in the month of June and his long ball numbers are not quite there yet. Over his last seven games, Harper is only batting .238 with one home run. Harper donged last night, which could be the turnaround marker. His price is solid with all things considered. This is a GPP lock for me and I hope it goes low-owned because we all know what Harper is capable of when he’s hot.
Mookie Betts, Bos at Bal
DK ($5,800) FD ($5,100)
Mookie sat last night and should be well rested tonight as the Red Sox are expected to demolish the Baltimore Orioles again. Baltimore’s bullpen is just not Major League ready right now. Maybe this offseason Baltimore will spend a little more time filling out that bullpen. The Red Sox are favored at -300 with an 8.5 under/over.
Yordan Alvarez, Tor at Hou
DK ($4,600) FD ($3,500)
This kid is on fire! His price finally rose to 3,500 on FanDuel but that’s still not enough. Alvarez has averaged 26.80 FD points since entering the Majors just four games ago, homering in three of the four. He faces left-handed Clayton Richard, who allowed a .296 BA with 95% of his 47 home runs over the past three seasons to opposing righties. Don’t think, just do it!
Also Consider: Andrew Benintendi
The Boston Red Sox demolished the Orioles last night, just like I predicted in last night’s Win Daily On Deck article. The problem was many other teams/players went off as well. Tonight, there is no question in my mind that Boston will go off again. Baltimore’s bullpen is full of players that are just not capable of throwing one past these Red Sox sluggers. As I mentioned yesterday, Baltimore’s bullpen is ranked dead last in the league, carrying a 5.72 ERA. The question isn’t whether or not to invest in Boston but who to invest in within a Boston Stack. Use Holt, Benintendi, Betts and my fourth is TBD. Stay tuned on Twitter @JaguarDFS.
The Houston Astros Stack starts with Yordan Alvarez. His price finally rose to 3,500 on FanDuel but that’s still not enough. This kid is perfect to rev up an Astros team that has been a little off recently, posting a .232 BA in the month of June. The Astros face Clayton Richard, who struggled in his last start allowing seven earned runs over 2.2 innings pitched. Richard has not faced the Astros but could definitely run into some problems here against a right-handed heavy power offense in Houston. The Astros are favored by -210 with a 9 under/over.
