MLB DFS Winners and Losers: Escobar, Moncada and More

Published

on

There was a seven game slate on Monday May 13th. The Orioles – Yankees game was postponed. I will go into detail on some players that played really well and some who underachieved. Salaries and points are based on DraftKings.

Winners

Eduardo Escobar ($5,000)

Escobar and the Diamondbacks faced off against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Escobar had a good game, going 3-for-5 with a home run. He had three RBI and two runs scored. He added a triple to go along with his home run. Escobar finished the game with two runs scored. His batting average now is at .288 with an OPS of .852. He has seven home runs and 21 RBI.

Escobar’s Outlook

Escobar and the Diamondbacks have two more games against the Pirates. The Pirates have the 12th best team ERA in the league at 4.12 and they also give up an opponent batting average of .238. Escobar is in the middle of rebounding from a slump and I expect that to continue against the Pirates. Roster him with confidence moving forward.

Yoan Moncada ($4,900)

Moncada went 3-for-4 with two home runs and a single. He had two RBI and two runs scored on Monday. This game improved Moncada’s average to .289 and his OPS is now at .877. Moncada has been consistent but not great. He has 12 hits over his last 11 games with four of those being extra base hits.

Moncada’s Outlook

Moncada and the White Sox have one more game against the Indians before hosting the Blue Jays for a four game series. Toronto has the 10th best ERA in the league at 3.93. The give up an opponent’s batting average of .231, which ranks eighth in the league. Moncada has been consistent but hasn’t put up numbers to win any fantasy leagues. He has tough matchups with the Blue Jays so I would stay away for the next week.

Reynaldo Lopez ($6,800)

Lopez faced off against the Cleveland Indians at home on Monday. He gave up two hits and two walks over seven innings. He gave up one earned run and one home run and struck out six. Lopez gave his owners 28.85 fantasy points. His ERA now is at 5.58 with a WHIP of 1.56. Lopez has been one of the most inconsistent pitchers in the league so far this year.

Lopez’s Outlook

Lopez has been a boom or bust pitcher so far this year. He now has four games over 20 fantasy points. He also has five games under five fantasy points. Lopez is the type of pitcher that can make or break a lineup. His next projected start is at home against the Blue Jays. Toronto averages just over 3.5 runs per game on the year. I will look to roster Lopez in his next start because the Blue Jays have the fifth most strikeouts in the league. The upside is there at his price.

Losers

Jose Berrios ($9,400)

Berrios and the Twins played the Angels at home on Monday. Berrios gave up 12 hits and three walks over five innings. He gave up five earned runs and two home runs on the day. He was only able to get three strikeouts. His ERA is now at 3.05 and his WHIP is at 1.08. His win loss record is now at 6-2. Berrios’ K/9 is at an average 8.23.

Berrios’ Outlook

Even after his rough start, Berrios has been pitching really well this year. I expect him to bounce back in his next projected start against the Mariners in Seattle. The Mariners have had one of the highest scoring offenses in the league but they haven’t faced many pitchers like Berrios this year. Roster him in a contrarian spot and take the points.

Injury Report

Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run of the season on Monday. As a hitter, he should be in roster consideration every day.
