The King’s DFS Pitching and MLB Prop Picks for 6/5: Prime Time for Perez




If you are playing on the two-game early DraftKings slate, you will be locked into Kenta Maeda at $8800. You will have to hope he pretends he is at home, where he has a 1.64 ERA as compared to his 5.64 road figure. Maeda is the best pure starter on the short slate and the only other real respectable choice to pair him with seems to be Jake Arrieta (8000), as the Padres certainly appear to be an inviting matchup. Arrieta has been a bit more effective in the K department on the road.

At first glance, James Paxton would appear to be well worth the 11,300 against Toronto, but we still cannot be fully certain how far he will be allowed to go into the game. If you want to risk it with Paxton he is strictly a GPP play and he will not help your salary structure, either.

You could be looking at a bounce-back spot for Martin Perez against Cleveland, Perez is just 7400 and the Indians are ninth in MLB strikeouts vs. lefties. On the other side of that matchup, I am not taking chances with the erratic Carlos Carrasco against that potent Minnesota lineup.

Charlie Morton appears to be a quality cash game play and worth the 11,600 against a Tigers team that is fifth in strikeouts. But Spencer Turnbull may not make it easy on the Tampa Bay bats and garnering a victory might not be easy for Morton.

Jimmy Nelson (8200) cannot be used yet in his first start back, even against Miami, which could go hitless against him for five innings after scoring 16 runs last night.

The Orioles are Top 10 in the league vs. LHPs and John Means could hold the Rangers offense in check, so don’t spend 10,800 on Mike Minor.

German Marquez is worth the GPP play at 10,800. The Cubs are middle of the road in team hitting and Marquez is 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA in away games, with 42 Ks in 43.1 IP. He has struck out at least six batters in all of his road starts.

Chris Sale is the apparent cash game play at 10,600 vs. the Royals but I would pivot off him with Marquez in GPPs.

Brad Peacock is a very appealing pick at 9600 against the Mariners, who pace the league in strikeouts. They are also 19th in team batting over the past seven days. Perez is my favorite non-Sale pick on the night slate, followed by Peacock and Marquez.

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

Martin Perez over 4.5 strikeouts vs. Cleveland

This seems to be a very attainable feat for Perez, who has at least seven strikeouts in four of his past six games. He may continue to regress soon, but will get a break from a possible upcoming and recent downturn here. I’d go with the under vs. Carrasco too, as Minnesota is 28th in strikeouts overall.
