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 Rumors: Drew Pomeranz To The Chicago White Sox Could Be A Perfect Fit

Drew Pomeranz, 27 years old, has been a very pleasant surprise in 2016. After being traded to the San Diego Padres in the offseason, the Padres decided to transfer Pomeranz back to the starting rotation after three years of work in the bullpen with the Oakland A’s and Colorado Rockies.

 

Through his first 10 starts in 2016, he has a 4-5 record, 2.48 ERA, 35 hits against, 69 strikeouts, and 29 walks in 58 innings pitched.

 

Unfortunately, this left-hander’s talents are being put the waste on the last place San Diego Padres. It is no secret that the Padres will look to sell their talent at the deadline to continue their rebuilding process. Pomeranz will be at the top of everyone’s wish list when they look at the assets the Padres are offering.

MLB Trade Rumors: Andrew Miller To The Texas Rangers

Let me preface this article by saying that this deal will only be made if the New York Yankees are out of the playoff race near the trade deadline. As of right now, the New York Yankees are 22-24, and 6.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox. Considering how competitive the American League East is, there is a good chance the Yankees will be out of contention near the trade deadline, which means they will be sellers in the trade market.

 

The Yankees’ number one asset to move will be one of their three elite relief pitchers, Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, or Aroldis Chapman. Of the three, Andrew Miller is the most likely to be dealt. Miller is under contract until 2018 (signed a four-year/$36 million contract in 2015), which is what makes him so valuable to a contending team. So far in 2016, Miller has appeared in 19 games, with a 2-0 record, 0.96 ERA, 33 strikeouts, and one walk in 18.2 innings pitched.

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.

TRADE RUMOR: Will The Los Angeles Angels Trade Mike Trout?

As of right now, the Angels only have 3 starting pitchers listed on their depth chart (Jared WeaverHector Santiago, and Nick Tropeano). This team is falling apart and it could be time to make a drastic move. They are currently 13-18, but they are expected to continue to drop in the standings considering their team can’t stay healthy. Just to make matters worse, their farm system is widely considered to be the worst minor league system in baseball. With that said, is it time for the Angels to consider trading Mike Trout to restock their farm system and focus on building their team for the future?
