Rafael Devers had a very productive game at the plate against Masashiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees. He went 2-for-5 with a double, home run, two RBI, two runs and a walk. Devers upped his average to .323 on the season, which is third in the American League. Look for Devers to continue his hot streak into tonight’s 7/26 MLB DFS game.
Devers has been hitting well since being moved up to the two hole. In his past 30 games played, he is batting .360 with 10 HR and 36 RBI. It also doesn’t hurt that the Yankees had a historically bad performance from their starting rotation this time through. The Red Sox play game two of their four-game set against the Yankees and look for Devers to continue producing.
Luke Voit ($4,800)
Luke Voit had a solid game at the plate against Rick Porcello and the Boston Red Sox. He went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored. He is creeping up his OPS, which is currently at .891 on the year. Look for Voit to continue producing during tonight’s 7/26 MLB DFS game as well.
Luke Voit is an OBP machine lately. In his last seven games, he has a .464 OBP and a 1.116 OPS. Voit was the only Yankee batter to reach base more than one time during last night’s blowout. Hitting in hitter-friendly Fenway Park should help his numbers as well. Voit and the Yankees will face Andrew Cashner today and Voit should continue to tear the cover off the ball during tonight’s game.
7/26 MLB DFS Losers
Jose Suarez ($8,200)
Jose Suarez did not provide enough value in his start last night against the Baltimore Orioles. He pitched 4.1 innings and allowed two runs on four hits with a walk and six strikeouts. Suarez threw 80 pitches and if you looked at our Cheat Sheet, you would have faded him in last night’s outing.
This was a game that the Angels needed Suarez to last a bit longer in,and it went 16 innings. However, this was tied for his longest outing in the month of July. DFS players expected more out of him facing the Baltimore Orioles, who are not a huge threat offensively. His next outing is slated for Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers. Expect a similar outing, which at a high price tag isn’t going to cut it.
Jordan Luplow ($4,200)
Jordan Luplow was unable to get it going last night against the Kansas City Royals. He went 0-for-3 with a walk before being pinch-hit for in extra innings, lowering his average to .254. Pass on Luplow for the second straight night in 7/26 MLB DFS.
Luplow is an average hitter at the plate recently. He is batting .235 with a .381 OBP in the last seven games he has appeared in. It also doesn’t help that the Tigers decided to pinch-hit for him in extra innings. The Tigers continue their series in Kansas City and with Jakob Junis on the hill coming off three great starts, including one against the Indians, avoid Luplow again in 7/26 MLB DFS.
