Taylor Clarke had a very good performance on the mound yesterday against the Baltimore Orioles and ended up among our 7/25 MLB DFS Winners. He went six innings and gave up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and did not allow a walk. Even with the success he had yesterday, fade him in his next start.
This was the longest outing for Clarke since May 25. Clarke lowered his ERA on the year to 6.10 in his 12th game. He also has a .293 Batting Average Against which isn’t great. His next outing is scheduled for Tuesday night in the Bronx against the Yankees. Clarke, facing a DH and the Yankees’ powerful lineup, should obviously be passed on.
Mike Tauchman ($4,100)
Mike Tauchman continued his hot hitting in the series finale against the Minnesota Twins. He went 2-for-4 with a double, triple, a pair of RBI and a run. Tauchman is now 11-for-21 (.524) with a 1.505 OPS in his past seven games. He has been on a tear as of late and is a must-have in your lineup for 7/25 MLB DFS.
Tauchman has arguably been the best Yankees hitter in the past few weeks. He is certainly proving his value with the Trade Deadline approaching and the Yankees having excess outfield depth in their system. The Yankees continue their road trip as they are in Boston for a four-game set starting tonight and will be facing Rick Porcello. The Sockman should be in your lineup tonight.
7/25 MLB DFS Losers
Jake Odorizzi ($8,600)
Jake Odorizzi was not able to stop the Yankees’ offense after an incredible performance by them the day before. He went four innings and allowed nine runs on 10 hits with a pair of walks and seven strikeouts. The Yankees and Twins have been slugging it out in their three-game series, but he had one of the weaker performances in the set. Look for Odorizzi to bounce back in his next start after becoming a 7/25 MLB DFS Loser.
The All-Star pitcher has not been pitching well as of late, he has a 6.98 ERA in his previous eight starts. His next outing is Tuesday evening in Miami against the Marlins. The Marlins rank last in slugging percentage and OPS as a team. They do not pose a huge threat and Odorizzi should be able to bounce back with a quality start.
Alex Bregman ($4,900)
Alex Bregman failed to get on base in his four at-bats yesterday against the Oakland Athletics. He hasn’t been looking like himself at the plate in the month of July, which should make DFS players scratch their heads in confusion. Try your best to find someone else that can provide better value than Alex Bregman in his next game after he ended up a 7/25 MLB DFS Loser.
Bregman has been below-average for the past month. In the last 30 games he has appeared in, Bregman is batting .250 with seven HR, 15 RBI and a 23:20 walk-to-strikeout ratio. He is a better hitter than those numbers show. The Houston Astros head to the road and play the St. Louis Cardinals starting tomorrow. They are facing Jack Flaherty, who has failed to pick up a victory since May 14. Look for Bregman to get a hit, but not provide a good enough performance to have him in your DFS lineup.
7/25 MLB DFS Injury Update
The New York Yankees placed Gary Sanchez on the 10-day IL with a sore left groin. The Yankees called up Kyle Higashioka from Triple-A to take over as the backup catcher.
Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs left yesterday’s game with right knee soreness. Manager Joe Maddon said he doesn’t know the severity of the injury but believes it to be a cumulative thing.
