Had time to put together an "Early Only" MLB FanDuel Lineup for today's 4-game slate that starts at 1:05 pm.
Keeping this short and sweet as we're less than an hour away from first pitch.
On the mound, I'm paying up for Luis Castillo in his road match-up agianst the Milwaukee Brewers. Generally, I would stay away from going agianst the Brewers at Miller Park, however, the Brew Crew will be without Christian Yelich today and can pile up strikeouts as they rank just 25th in team strikeout rate at 9.66 K/game. Castillo has been lights out this season, posting a 1.90 ERA & 0.96 WHIP and has the best K-upside on the slate with his 11.09 K/9 ratio.
On the offensive side, we're going with a 4-man Seattle stack vs. Jesse Chavez in Texas. Chavez has allowed opponents to post a .296 average/.898 OPS against him on the season and a 2.25 HR/9 ratio on the season. For the Mariners, we're going with Dylan Moore, Jay Bruce, Mitch Haniger, and Daniel Vogelbach.
We have Matt Olson & Jurickson Profar for Oakland vs. Jefry Rodriguez of the Indians. Rodriguez has given up 3 HR's over his last 2 starts and I like the fact that the wind is blowing out a bit to right-center this afternoon.
For the Indians, we have Jose Ramirez in hopes that he can break out of his season-long slump and we have so good value in the Red Derek Dietrich who certainly has some HR upside.
