Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 5/24/16

If you have any questions or comments about this article or fantasy baseball, please Tweet me @dynasty_digest. Please follow my blog for daily updates on my daily fantasy baseball rosters for DraftKings (dynastydigest.sportsblog.com).

 

P- Stephen Strasburg (vs. New York Mets): $13,400. Strasburg has had a great year so far. In 61 innings pitched, he has a 7-0 record, with a 2.80 ERA, 75 strikeouts, and 16 walks. In his last start, he faced the New York Mets, and he dominated them. He threw six innings, giving up six hits, one earned run, and striking out 10 batters. Strasburg should dominate again on Tuesday considering the Mets offense is struggling (.216 BA in the last seven games) and they lost a key bat in Lucas Duda.

 

P- Julio Teheran (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $9,400. The Brewers’ offense has struggled all year long. In the last seven days, they are hitting a whopping .207 with a .269 OBP. This should bode well for Teheran. In 44 career at bats against Teheran, the Brewers are batting .227, with 11 strikeouts, and a .274 OBP. These numbers are very encouraging for this matchup on Tuesday.

Five Must Add Waiver Wire Claims In Fantasy Baseball

1. Blake Snell (LHP; Tampa Bay Rays): Snell made his much anticipated major league debut earlier this this week against the New York Yankees. He threw 5 innings, giving up 2 hits, 1 earned run, 6 strikeouts, and 1 walk. This left-hander has done nothing but impress scouts over the past two years, so it is no surprise to see his success in his first start. Following his debut, he was immediately sent down to Triple-A, but it shouldn’t be long before he is back up with the Rays. In 2015, Snell made the jump from High-A to Triple-A. He threw 134 innings, with a 1.41 ERA, 163 strikeouts, 53 walks, and a 15-4 record. He has a plus fastball with lots of movement, a sharp slider, and a developing changeup. His command could still use some work, but it is very clear that he is ready for a full-time spot in the Rays’ rotation. If you have room on your roster, now is the time to stash Snell before he gets promoted again. It is only a matter of time before Snell finds himself in the rotation considering the Rays are currently using a 4-man rotation.

Philadelphia Phillies State Of The Union For 2016

The Phillies have not had a winning season since 2011 after putting forth a decade straight of them. A promising second half to the year - coupled with full seasons by Aaron Nola and Maikel Franco could have them inch closer back to achieving that mark in the next few years. The management finally started the rebuild halfway through the year - and the financial flexibility in going forward should really be shaped up in a few more years. Philadelphia has $110 MIL in approximate Team Salary already committed for next year. I would keep the course and build through the Draft. Spending money on any premiere Free Agents is a little premature right now. In addition, the club could really trade away anything not nailed down.

The Phillies have not had a winning season since 2011 after putting forth a decade straight of them. A promising second half to the year – coupled with full seasons by Aaron Nola and Maikel Franco could have them inch closer back to achieving that mark in the next few years. The management finally started the rebuild halfway through the year, have continued it so far this winter – and the financial flexibility in going forward should really be shaped up in a few more seasons.   It may be a tough campaign in 2016 for the win loss column, however the team has a lot of young players to watch and be excited about.

I was lucky enough to watch a record 224 MLB Games live last year – spread across all 30 MLB parks in every day of the campaign last season.

Unfortunately I saw the most home games (33 Games) in Philadelphia with my brother living close by.  There is nothing wrong with Citizens Ball Park, it was the team that was tough to watch.

When you have Jeff Francouer as your #4 hitter for half of the year, there is something wrong with that. I love the guy, and Frenchy had a decent year, it just said a lot about the depth of the Roster in 2015.

At the end of the year Philadelphia’s management started to trade away Veterans from the glory days of the World Series, and you can start to see the healing begin.

The dealing continued with Ken Giles sent to Texas for a bunch of stud arms coming back. Now the Phillies are looking forward to a bunch of young talent coming to the big leagues in the next few seasons.

The old guard is still there with Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz holding down the Starting First Base and Catcher respectively.  Howard is an average offensive threat only now that makes $25 MIL. (more…)

The Philadelphia should have a payroll of near $110 MIL after Arbitration dollars are handed out next year.  Of that money, Ryan Howard and 3 players (Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Chase Utley) rake in $49 MIL of the salary on players that no longer play on the club, or in Howard’s case – are very unproductive.

I love the deals the franchise has made since the Trade Deadline – and even loved some of the Veterans they have picked up for the coming year like Charlie Morton and Jeremy Hellickson.

Between the half a dozen Starters or so they have acquired through trades, and their nice young Starter in Aaron Nola, they now have a promising future in the Rotation.

Mark Appel was also acquired in the Ken Giles trade.  This is a #1 overall pick who may just need some more seasoning in the Minors.
