Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
Saw my first game on the Green Monster at Fenway yesterday and if you ever at Fenway, I would try to make it happen as it was an unreal experience.
Let’s get back to our DFS lineups as we take a look at today’s MLB FanDuel “Main Slate” that features 10 games and starts at 1:05pm.
On the mound, we’re going to go with Yonny Chirinos of the Tampa Bay Rays in his solid match-up agianst the Toronto Blue Jays. Chirinos is having an out standing season for the Rays, as he comes into this game with a 3.29 ERA & 1.02 WHIP while going at least 5.0 innings in each of his last 11 games. Chirinos has a great splitter and a respectable 7.8 K/9 ratio and we couldn’t ask for a better match-up as the Blue Jays rank 30th in batting average vs. RHP (.227 average) & 20th in team strikeout rate (9.08 K/game).
On the offensive end, we’re going with two 4-man stacks of Cincinnati Reds & Minnesota Twins.
Cincinnati will be up against the RHP Peter Lambert of the Colorado Rockies who comes into this game with a 5.93 ERA & 1.46 WHIP. Lambert has allowed opponents to post a .930 OPS agianst him on the season and is allowing both LHB’s & RHB’s to hit over .300 against him. Lambert has had trouble keeping the ball in the park as he has a 2.20 HR/9 ratio and with the wind blowing out at Great American Ball Park, I can see him giving up a few HR’s today.
For the Reds, we’re going with Joey Votto, Scooter Gennett, Eugenio Suarez, & Josh VanMeter.
The Twins have one of the best match-ups on the slate as they go up against the RHP Dylan Covey of the Chicago White Sox. Covey comes into this game with a 6.04 ERA & 1.51 WHIP and has really struggled agianst LHB’s this season, allowing them to post a .345 average & .992 OPS.
For the Twins, we’re paying up for Jorge Polanco, Max Kepler, Nelson, Cruz & Marwin Gonzalez.
