MLB DFS Winners and Losers: Catching a Fish

Published

on

All 30 teams were in action on Sunday June 2nd. We will discuss players who lived up to the hype on the slate and others who did not. The prices and point values are all based off DraftKings.

Winners

Eric Thames ($3,900)

Thames had a solid game against the Pittsburgh Pirates going 2-for-3 with a double, home run, three RBI, a couple of runs scored and a walk. He has been on a tear recently, batting .333 in his past seven games and had very good at-bats against the Pirates the entire series. Look for Thames to keep his bat hot on Tuesday’s slate.

Thames’ Outlook

Thames is now up to seven home runs and 24 RBI on the season and is proving to be a solid bat in the middle of the order. The Milwaukee Brewers host the Miami Marlins on Tuesday and the Marlins pitching staff is middle-of-the-pact so do not expect them to stop Thames’ production.

Adrian Sampson ($6,900)

Sampson had a solid outing yesterday against the Kansas City Royals in Globe Life Park, where the ball has a tendency to fly off the bat. He threw seven innings and he gave up one run on eight hits. Sampson also had a career-high 11 punchouts in the game. Granted, the Royals do not possess too much of a threat to opposing pitchers, but Sampson stepped up big-time for the Rangers.

Sampson’s Outlook

Sampson only made one mistake against the Royals, a sixth inning solo blast to Jorge Soler. Otherwise, Sampson controlled the game from the first pitch. This was his best performance in his young career, but his ERA is still high at 4.14. His next start should be against the division-rival Oakland A’s. This was a great outing but is not something people should jump on until he proves he could do it for multiple outings.

Jorge Alfaro ($4,000)

Alfaro had a solid game against the San Diego Padres, going 2-for-4 with a double, home run, four RBI and crossed the plate once himself. The four RBI were a season-high for Alfaro. He has been the hottest hitting catcher in the National League in the past week, batting .444 with a .464 OBP during that stretch. With a minimal price tag with solid production, look for him on Tuesday’s slate.

Alfaro’s Outlook

Alfaro has been the best hitter for the Marlins throughout the 2019 campaign. He is making contact at a good rate and has over an .800 OPS on the season. He is still getting disrespected on his price point. The scheduled starter for the Brewers, Chase Anderson, has a 1.35 WHIP and Alfaro should take advantage of that.

Losers

Shohei Ohtani ($4,200)

Japan’s Babe Ruth did not have the power of the Bambino yesterday, going hitless in five at bats against Seattle. He did have a RBI, but also left five runners on base against a team that struggled finding outs. All in all, avoid Ohtani while he is struggling for a prolonged stretch of times.

Ohtani’s Outlook

Ohtani has struggled for the previous two weeks, going 11-for-61 (.180) during that time. He also has seen strike three 19 times in those 61 at-bats. He hasn’t looked like the 2018 American League Rookie of the Year and instead is a torn-UCL hitter that isn’t getting the job done. His next game should be Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics but avoid Ohtani at all costs.

Mookie Betts ($5,000)

The reigning American League MVP had a hitless game in five at-bats against CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees. He struck out to open the game and also left a runner on base. Mookie should be a lock on Tuesday’s slate with a bounce-back game against Kansas City.

Betts’ Outlook

Mookie has hit a bit of a wall recently, batting .200 in his previous seven games but still put together a solid month of May. There are many games where Betts is going to be stunted at the plate for nine innings and he should get it going against the Royals, who have the fourth-worst batting average against in MLB.

Injury Report

The San Diego Padres announced that Fernando Tatis Jr. will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Armarillo on Monday.

Mike Moustakas did not have any new fractures pop up on an X-ray after getting hit with a 101 mph fastball on his right hand.

The Yankees trio of Aaron Judge, Dellin Betances and Greg Bird are expected to travel to Tampa to begin on their return paths from their various injuries.

Vincent Pensabene is a graduate of Saint Leo University with a B.A. in Sports Business. He was the NBA Editor at Forward Mile, where he handled NBA DFS articles. In addition, he wrote for numerous local newspapers and websites before landing at WinDaily.
