Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings – 6/24/16

P – Max Scherzer (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $13,900. In 61 career at bats against Scherzer, the Brewers’ offense is batting .115, with 28 strikeouts, and a .169 OBP. In his last start against Milwaukee, Scherzer held together a perfect game through seven innings. Unfortunately he lost the perfect game in the seventh, but he only gave up one hit with 16 strikeouts in the complete game. In his last three starts, he owns a 2-0 record, 0.90 ERA, and 27 strikeouts.

P – Cody Reed (vs. San Diego Padres): $7,200. In his MLB debut, Reed showed lots of promise. He threw seven innings against the Houston Astros, giving up four runs, and striking out nine. His ability to strike batters out should make him a very good play on Friday. San Diego is ranked 27th in strikeouts, which is great for Reed.

Chicago White Sox In Desperate Need Of An Outfielder; Could Jay Bruce Be A Fit?

The Chicago White Sox started the year as one of the hottest teams in baseball, but they are sharply declining. In their last 10 games, they are 3-7 and they now find themselves in third place in the American League Central. If the White Sox want to compete in this very tough division, they are going to need to add an impact bat near the trade deadline.

 

The White Sox are currently ranked 21st overall in run production, and a big part of that is because of their lack of power production. They have hit 49 home runs this year, which ranks as the 24th overall team in Major League Baseball. For that reason, they must trade for a power bat near the deadline to stay afloat in the American League Central.

MLB Trade Rumor: Luis Valbuena To The Kansas City Royals

After losing Mike Moustakas to a season-ending injury, the Royals are in desperate need of a third baseman. As of right now, Cheslor Cuthbert is their only viable option, but he isn’t cutting it. Cuthbert is batting .277, with two home runs, six RBIs, nine runs, and a .294 OBP in 85 plate appearances. His numbers aren’t terrible, but the Royals are going to need more production at third base if they want to retain their lead in the American League Central.

There are multiple potential third base options that will be discussed near the trade deadline, but Luis Valbuena could be a very good option for the Kansas City Royals. As of right now Valbuena is the starting third baseman for the Houston Astros, but their top prospect, Alex Bregman, is making a very good case in the Minor Leagues that he is ready for the bigs. If the Astros decide to promote Bregman, Valbuena could find his way on the trade block immediately.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/4/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. Atlanta Braves): $14,100. I don’t care how expensive Kershaw is, he is a must start against one of the worst offenses in baseball. In 104 career at bats against Kershaw, the Braves’ offense is batting .240, with 35 strikeouts, and a .288 OBP. Kershaw is currently on pace for one of the best seasons in baseball by a pitcher in a long time. In his 86.2 innings pitched in 2016, he owns a 7-1 record, 1.56 ERA, 51 hits against, 105 strikeouts, and only 5 walks.

 

P- Bartolo Colon (vs. Miami Marlins): $7,000. In 262 career at bats, the Marlins’ offense is batting .279 with a .287 OBP. In his last 10 starts, Colon has given up more than three runs in only one of those starts. He won’t put up elite numbers, but he is a very viable option for solid statistics.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/3/16

P- Jesse Hahn (vs. Houston Astros): $7,200. In 43 career at bats against Hahn, the Astros’ offense is batting .163 against Hahn, with one home run, three RBIs, 11 strikeouts, and a .217 OBP. The Astros have the worst strikeout rate in baseball, so Hahn could put up quite a few K’s, which is a great source of points on DraftKings.

 

P- Gio Gonzalez (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $8,800. In 63 at bats against Gio, the Reds’ offense is batting .190, with two home runs, eight RBIs, 17 strikeouts, and a .264 OBP. Gio Gonzalez has been very consistent in 2016, so he should be able to handle a struggling Reds’ offense. So far in 2016, Gio is 3-3, with a 3.57 ERA, 53 strikeouts, and 17 walks in 58 innings pitched.

Move Over Luis Valbuena, It’s Alex Bregman’s Turn

The Houston Astros have struggled in 2016 and one of their biggest flaws is how streaky their offensive lineup can be at times. While many players contribute to this flaw, Luis Valbuena could be the streakiest of them all.

 

Valbuena is known for his above average power at third base, but so far in 2016, Valbuena has been far from above average. Through 169 plate appearances, he is batting .221, with six home runs, 17 RBIs, 19 runs, and a .319 OBP.

 

The Houston Astros are currently ranked 9th overall in home runs as a team (67), but they are ranked 19th overall in on base percentage (.316). It is clear the Astros aren’t struggling to put the ball over the fence, but getting on base has been a problem.
