All 30 teams were in action on Friday July 20. We were very close to a historic performance in Seattle. All MLB DFS points and price tags are based off DraftKings.
MLB DFS Winners
Mike Leake ($7,000)
Mike Leake had a historical outing last night against the Los Angeles Angels in Seattle. He threw a complete game one-hit shutout with a walk and six strikeouts. What will be remembered is Leake retiring the first 24 batters of the game before allowing a leadoff single in the ninth. Leake should be in your lineup for his next outing.
Mike Leake might have had the most dominating performance for Seattle since James Paxton had his no-hitter in May 2018. Even with this outing, he has a 4.27 ERA this season. He kept his pitch count low, with 80 pitches through eight perfect innings. His next MLB DFS outing is Wednesday at home against the Texas Rangers, who have been struggling as of late.
Anthony Santander ($3,600)
Anthony Santander looked locked in at the plate last night against the Boston Red Sox. He went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI and three runs. Santander was the best hitter on the worst team in the American League East. Look to add Santander to your lineup for today’s action.
Santander has been hitting well recently for the Baltimore Orioles. In his past seven games, he is batting .308 with a .345 OBP. The Orioles continue their weekend series against the Red Sox and face Rick Porcello, who has a 5.37 ERA. Look for Santander to continue his hitting spree and consider him in MLB DFS.
MLB DFS Losers
David Price ($9,300)
David Price did not have it against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday. He went just four innings and allowed six runs on eight hits with a walk and four strikeouts. He hasn’t been good lately and maybe some “home” cooking could be the best solution for Price.
Price has not looked like his normal self lately. In his last seven games, he has posted an ERA of 5.29. He went in 8-0 in his career at Camden Yards but looked off from the first pitch. Price returns to the Trop in his next MLB DFS start on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Mike Trout ($5,800)
Mike Trout did not look good against the Seattle Mariners last night. He went hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout. A lot of hitters looked uncomfortable as the Angels failed to have a baserunner through eight innings. Trout’s average dropped to .301 and is still the best player of this generation, so do not be worried about his performance last night.
Mike Trout is the best player in baseball. In his past 30 games, he has a .310 average with a .406 OBP while slugging 13 homers in that span. It would be insane not to expect Trout to at least get a hit against the Mariners tonight. The Mariners have the fifth-highest team batting average against so obviously get Trout in your MLB DFS lineup.
Max Scherzer received a cortisone shot in his back and will be skipped in the rotation. He was originally slated for Sunday and has been diagnosed with an inflamed bursa sac. Scherzer told reporters he is hopeful he won’t miss too much more action.
Cameron Maybin took batting practice on the field on Friday before the Yankees played the Rockies. He has been out since June 23 with a strained left calf.
