Saturday June 22 provided us with the second consecutive day with a full 15-game slate. Some lesser-known players had big performances while other marquee names struggled. All points and dollar amounts are based on DraftKings.
Aaron Civale ($6,700)
Aaron Civale had an incredible MLB debut last night against the Detroit Tigers. He hurled six shutout innings and only allowed three hits. Civale also had three walks and six strikeouts. Look for Civale in his next start.
What a MLB debut for Aaron Civale, who has pitched well this season in the minors. He had a 2.85 ERA in seven starts in Triple A. His next scheduled start is Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles in Camden Yards. The Orioles have a better lineup than the Tigers do, but shouldn’t appear as a threat to Civale.
Todd Frazier ($4,000)
Todd Frazier looked locked in at the plate against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field last night. He finished going 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored and a walk. Frazier has been locked in recently and should be getting the start at third base.
It looks like The Todfather has begun to turn things around this season. In his previous seven games, he is batting .333 with two homers, six RBI and four walks. The numbers are looking great and pointing in the right direction. The Mets continue their series with the Chicago Cubs this afternoon.
Jose Quintana ($7,500)
Jose Quintana did not pitch well against the New York Mets at home. Quintana finished with 4.1 innings and gave up nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits. He also had two walks and two strikeouts as well. He did not look good yesterday, giving up three home runs to one of the weaker offensive teams in the National League. Fade Jose Quintana until he figures it out.
Jose Quintana has been off for the better half of two months now. In his past seven starts, he is 0-4 with a 5.65 ERA in 36.2 innings pitched. Quintana needs a solid outing to get back on track. His next scheduled start is Thursday afternoon against the surging Atlanta Braves. Until Quintana proves he can pitch well and break this slump he is on, do not use him in your lineup.
J.T. Realmuto ($4,200)
J.T. Realmuto went hitless in four at-bats yesterday with a strikeout against the Miami Marlins. He has been ice cold recently and should be faded until he can show some life at the plate.
J.T. Realmuto is one of the best all-around catchers in the game today. However, in his last seven games, he looks like a pitcher trying to hit. He is 2-for-23 in that stretch and is hitting into some bad luck. The Phillies continue their series against the Miami Marlins today and players should fade on Realmuto until he shows some life on offense.
Victor Robles of the Washington Nationals left the game during the second inning due to symptoms of dehydration.
Jose Berrios of the Minnesota Twins left the game in the eighth inning with a blister on his throwing hand.
Ketel Marte of the Arizona Diamondbacks left last night’s ballgame with a groin injury.
