Update (6:53 PM) - Made some last minute adjustments. Decided to go with Jung Ho Kang (3B) & David Fletcher (SS) over Nunez/Crawford. Image is updated. Good Luck!
Happy Friday! It's been a crazy week and lets end it on a good note with a strong performance in tonight's MLB FanDuel "Main Slate" that features 14 games and starts at 7:05pm.
On the mound tonight, we're going to spend up and go with Boston's Chris Sale in his match-up agianst the Toronto Blue Jays. Sale has been lights out as of late and has 10+ K's in 8 of his last 9 games. Sale was hit pretty hard early in the season agianst the Blue Jays, however, I expect him to have a strong game tonight agianst a Blue Jays team that ranks just 23rd in batting average vs. LHB's (.238) and 22nd in strikeout rate (9.09 K/game).
On the offensive side, we're going with a 4-man stack of Texas Rangers in Ronald Guzman, Rougned Odor, Shin-soo Choo, and Nomar Mazara in their match-up in Texas vs. Reynaldo Lopez. Lopez comes into this game with a 6.31 ERA and has trouble keeping the ball in the park as he has a 2.10 HR/9 ratio.
I'm staying in this match-up agianst go with Eloy Jimenez who is hitting .368 with 3 HR's over the past week and has a decent match-up agianst Ariel Jurado who had allowed a HR in each of his last 5 starts.
Derek Dietrich is hitting HR's at a career rate this season as the 6-year veteran already has 18 HR's this season and he has a nice match-up against Chase Anderson of the Brewers who isn't a stranger when it comes to giving up HR's.
Rounding out the team, we're going with some value in 3B Renato Nunez of the Orioles & SS Brandon Crawford of the Giants who but have above-average match-ups tonight.
As always, I will make any necessary updates due to confirmed lineups, weather, etc. I will do my best to update the post but if it’s a last-second update, it’s easier for me to post that with an image on Twitter (@BrettCU05).
