There are a lot of great spots for MLB DFS bats tonight so I will help narrow it down to my favorite stacks and a few value bats.
Top Stack – Milwaukee Brewers. Taylor Clarke takes the mound for the Diamondbacks and that is great MLB DFS news for the Brewers. He has a below average strikeout rate of 16.7% and gives up a whopping 41.3% hard contact to lefties. In addition to that, he gives up a .293 ISO against hitters from both sides of the plate. Yelich, Moustakas, Grandal, and Thames are the ones to target here in MLB DFS.
Another Stack to Consider – Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox face off against John Means tonight in Baltimore. While it’s not the greatest MLB DFS matchup for Boston because Means has shown some ability to pitch well, I really like them because the bullpen for Baltimore is awful. If they can get to Means and to that bullpen early it will mean good things. Means has somewhat reverse splits so I am targeting Bogaerts, Martinez, Chavis, and Vazquez. You can switch in Betts for either Chavis or Vazquez but for me he is on the outside of my stacks until I see him get his power back. He only has a .096 ISO for the year and is priced at $4,400. For that MLB DFS price I want power and home run upside which he has not shown this year. Maybe this is the game he gets back on track, but I will wait and see.
Top Value Bats – Jordan Luplow is still only $2,600 on FanDuel. I think their algorithm is broken. He is my top points per dollar spend in MLB DFS tonight. He has a massive .368 ISO against lefties and he gets a dream matchup in Mike Montgomery. From that same game I like Roberto Perez at $2,800. He has been crushing lefties with a .296 ISO and is doing so quietly since he bats lower in the order. Another value I like is Jessie Winker. He will bat leadoff again in a great hitter’s park. He is priced at only $2,800 and has a .239 ISO. In four at-bats against Wainwright he is one for four with that hit being a home run. Not a large sample size for MLB DFS by any means but shows he has the ability to take him deep.
