Welcome back for a new week of MLB DFS. Tonight we have a 9 game Main Slate tonight on DraftKings and FanDuel. We have plenty of great stack options tonight but lets get started with our favourites.
vs Dakota Hudson: 4.8 implied runs
The Brewers and Cardinals are kicking off a series at Thriller Park tonight featuring two pitchers that have been giving up a lot of hard contact. Dakota Hudson doesn’t have much major league experience under his belt but so far he has been bad against lefties with opposing LHB boasting a .427 wOBA giving up hard contact at a 44% clip. Christian Yelich has a .480 wOBA against righties generating hard contact at 50% and fly balls at 44%. Mike Moustakas generates even more hard contact and fly balls than Yelich and has a .333 ISO against RHP. Travis Shaw has been struggling a bit but he comes in at an affordable price on both sites and fits in nicely with the stack. Coincidentally all three players just mentioned have homered off Hudson before.
Chicago White Sox
vs Heath Fillmyer: 5 implied runs
The White Sox start a series at home with the Royals tonight facing fly ball pitcher Heath Fillmyer. We’ll start the stack off with switch hitter stud Yoan Moncada who is off to a hot start this season. Looking back to last year he hit 15 of his 17 HR’s off righties and has a .442 wOBA so far this season with a .650 SLG. Rookie Eloy Jimenez has started off hitting righties really well with a .436 wOBA in a 36 PA sample size and Heath Fillmyer has been giving up 44% hard contact to righties. To wrap up the stack if you’re looking for home run upside its Jose Abreu and if you’re looking for steal upside its Leury Garcia.
Los Angeles Angels
vs Shelby Miller: 5.6 implied runs
Generous implied total for the Replacements without Mike Trout but they are in a hitter friendly park tonight facing a sub par pitcher. Miller hasn’t pitched much over the last three years so not much data on him but as a righty, over his career, he has struggled against lefties. First lefty we’re going to look at is Justin Bour who is 5 for 12 with 2 HR’s lifetime off Miller. Kole Calhoun’s numbers to start the season haven’t been amazing but his ISO against righties is still at .205 and he is affordable on both sites. To wrap up the stack we’re going to look at righty Andrelton Simmons who, without Mike Trout, has been one of the only consistent contributing members of this batting order.
