Daily Matchups for 7/9/2016

Pitcher

STUDS

Max Scherzer-  Easily the top pitcher on the day. Mets haven’t been hitting well of late. Should get plenty of strikeouts and a shot at the W.

Carlos Martinez- Brewers have combined to hit 13-56 of Martinez, and are one of the worst offenses vs. RHP’s this season.

MID RANGE

Danny Salazar- Right  now the Yankees offense is a hot mess.  Only down fall here is they don’t strike out much, which limits his upside. More of a GPP play here.

Lance McCullers- McCullers has great strikeout numbers but at 4 walks per 9, it runs that pitch count up in a hurry  that being said, a matchup with Oakland could offer some nice fantasy value.

VALUE

Rick Porcello- Only there Rays really have good match ups vs. the Boston righty, but the Rays as a whole have been horrible this season vs. righties. Porcello is in play in cash and GPP for  me today.

Jose Altuve Taking a Page out of Bryce Harper’s Book During Monster Year

Just when it looked like Houston Astros second baseman (and now four-time All-Star) Jose Altuve couldn’t get much better at the plate, he proves us wrong.

Since debuting in 2011 as a 21-year-old, Altuve has displayed quite the ability to collect base hits. Not only does he already have a batting title under his belt, but also no American League player has collected more hits than him since 2014. As Houston continued building a powerful lineup around him, he was incredibly valuable to the club has a top-of-the-lineup table setter.

From 2014-15, he posted a .327/.365/.456 triple slash with 22 homers, 87 doubles, 125 RBI, 171 runs scored and 94 stolen bases. It can’t get much better than that, right? Since Altuve is in the midst of his sixth MLB season, we tend to forget that he’s still young and can actually improve.

That’s exactly what he’s done this year as a 26-year-old, and it seems like he’s taken a page straight out of Bryce Harper’s book in the process.

Chances are slim he actually chatted with Harper about it – and Harper isn’t the first young player to experience the kind of jump in production he did in 2015 – but it’s interesting to see two very different hitters experience similar results with regard to a similar shift in plate approach.

Every Baseball Game is Great

By Josh:

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my time as a player, coach, fan and soon to be coach again. I’ve been thinking about all the times I got frustrated with the game of baseball and the reasons why I eventually just gave up on it. I’ve also been thinking about all the laughs and fun times I had in and around the game.

You see I have a 4 year old daughter who will be playing t-ball next year and I will be the coach. Also, my wife is pregnant and I’m really hoping it is a boy so I can coach baseball.

MLB Trade Rumors: Ryan Braun To The Washington Nationals

Ryan Braun is putting together another successful season in 2016. In 147 plate appearances, he is batting .364, with seven home runs, 28 RBIs, 21 runs, two stolen bases, and a .429 OBP. Unfortunately, he has missed nine games this year due to injury, which isn’t surprising considering his injury history throughout his career. Braun’s success in 2016 could make him a hot commodity on the trade market near the deadline in 2016.

 

One of many teams who will be interested in Braun is the Washington Nationals. The Nationals’ outfield has struggled mightily at times in 2016. A lot of these struggles have come from Ben Revere, who is batting .182, with zero home runs, five RBIs, six runs, and a .225 OBP. Revere’s backup, Michael Taylor, is batting a whopping .192, with four home runs, six RBIs, 14 runs, six stolen bases, and a .234 OBP.

 

Clearly, they are not getting the job done, which is why Braun would be a huge upgrade to their lineup. This move makes sense for both sides considering the Brewers are looking to rebuild and the Nationals are in need of a bat since they are trying to win now.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings 5/1/16

P- Rich Hill (vs. Houston Astros): $8,900. Rich Hill has been on fire in 2016. In his first 5 starts, he has thrown 26 innings, with a 2.42 ERA, and 37 strikeouts. His strikeout rate in 2016 is what makes him such an attractive choice for daily fantasy. Well, tomorrow is quite possibly the best match-up for Hill when it comes to potential strikeouts. The Houston Astros rank as the worst team in Major League Baseball in the strikeout category. They have struck out a whopping 233 times in 2016. Needless to say, Hill could put up a lot of points in Draft Kings tomorrow.

P- Danny Salazar (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): $10,800. Salazar has been quite the workhorse for the Cleveland Indians this year. In his first 4 starts, he has thrown 23 innings, with a 2.35 ERA, giving up only 11 hits, and 26 strikeouts. He has always been known for his impressive strikeout rate, which should be great on Sunday, considering he is facing the Philadelphia Phillies, whom is ranked 21st in that category. He comes at a steep price, but there are many other elite pitchers throwing on Sunday who are more costly and have tougher match-ups. Keep a close eye on this match-up, as there is some potential issues with the weather forecast.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings 4/29/16

P- Juan Nicasio (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $5,800. To me, this seems like a no brainer. First of all, Nicasio’s price point helps the flexibility of the rest of the lineup. Second, he is facing the 25th ranked offense in Major League Baseball at his home park. Third, he has a great strikeout rate, which will lead to great points on Friday. In 20 innings this year, he has a 4.50 ERA, 21 strikeouts, and 11 walks. In 2016, he has started against the Cardinals, Tigers, and Diamondbacks, whom all have great offenses. This match-up seems to be in Nicosio’s favor and it could be a great game for daily fantasy on Friday.

P- Aaron Sanchez (vs. Tampa Bay Rays): $7,100. Sanchez had a rough game last game, but prior to that, he had only give up 3 earned runs in 3 starts. He will be starting against the Tampa Bay Rays, whom he has already dominated this year. The Rays are ranked as the 29th overall offense in Major League Baseball, which shows how terrible they really are when it comes to hitting. In Sanchez’s 2016 debut, he threw 7 innings against the Rays, giving up 1 earned run, 5 hits, 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Sanchez will be hungry after his rough start last week, so he should put up a huge game on Friday.
