Hope everyone is enjoying the start to their weekend.
Just got home and had some time to put together a lineup for the MLB FanDuel “Early Only” slate that features 6 games and starts at 4:05pm.
On the mound, I’m going with CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees as he should be well-rested and is coming off back to back performances of 46-Fanduel points & 49-FanDuel points. Sabathia pitched well in his last outing against the Rays as he went 6.0 innings while giving up just 1 ER while striking out 7. Sabathia has been lights out agianst LHB’s this season, allowing them to post just a .143 average agianst him and as he still has the ability to strikeout hitters (16 K’s over his last 12.0 IP), I think he has some good value against the Rays today.
On the offensive end, we’re stacking the Red Sox in their prime match-up agianst the RHP Jordan Zimmerman of the Detroit Tigers. Zimmerman comes into this game with just a 5.36 ERA in his 9 starts this season and has struggled agianst the current Red Sox roster as he is allowing them to hit .357 while posting a 1.040 OPS agianst him.
The Red Sox have been on fire from the plate over the past month and I think the 4-man stack of Michael Chavis, Rafael Devers, Mookie Betts & Jackie Bradley Jr. is a solid play today.
Max Fried has been solid this season for the Braves, but I don’t mind getting some value in Miami RHB’s as he is allowing RHB’s to post a .284 average/.784 OPS agianst him on the season.
For the Marlins, we’re going with Neil Walker & Starling Castro. Walker has been outstanding in “day” games this year (.353 average/1.038) and on the road (.333 average) while Castro has posted a .326 average vs. LHP.
We’re paying up for Juan Soto today in his great match-up agianst Glenn Sparkman who has allowed LHB’s to post a .929 OPS. Soto has been outstanding as of late, posting a .294 average over the past week and has posted a .294 average/.942 OPS vs. RHB’s on the season.
Rounding out the team, we’re going with some value in Orlando Arcia of the Brewers who although is hitting just .238 on the season, does have some HR-upside as he has hit 11 HR’s this season.
Thanks for following as always and don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@BrettCU05) as that is where I can't post list minute changes if needed!
Good Luck this afternoon!
