We have a nine-game MLB main masterpiece on tap tonight along with tons of chance to get into some cash early in the week.
Let us unleash some FanDuel MLB DFS Choices and determine if we can get our week started on the ideal note!
P — Brendan McKay (TB) — $7,500 vs. SEA
There’s some risk in rostering McKay within this one tonight against a Mariners team which hits for a ton of power, but the good news is there is plenty of strikeout upside here as well. Entering this one tonight, McKay sports a 5.08 ERA along his seven starts in the major league level, however he owns a 3.96 FIP and 4.02 xFIP that suggests some noteworthy positive regression moving forward. That said, it’s the 10.69 K/9 that he’s posted to the stage that has caught my attention. Furthermore, the Mariners own a 25.5percent strikeout rate on the season from left-handed pitching, so we certainly have something to use in the strikeout section. Some extra items working in McKay’s favor are the pitcher-friendly boundaries of Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay where this one will occur tonight, a little 3.6 run projection for the Mariners and also the simple fact that the Rays are recorded as -185 to win the ball game tonight about the moneyline over at BetOnline, giving us noteworthy win upside with this play. Just 23 years old, that kid has a bright future in front of him given his elite minor league amounts throughout the year, but also for the here and I see loads of value upside at the cost in this matchup.
C/1B — Christian Walker (ARI) — $3,400 vs. COL
The disappointing Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks get together to an NL West matchup tonight at Chase Field in Arizona, and I am enjoying me a few D-backs bats in this against the right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez. After not seeing action at the big leagues because the 2016 year, Gonzales has been requested to consume innings on a devastating Rockies pitching staff this season, and the outcomes have been very predictable given his 6.10 ERA in the minors prior to his promotion. In give large league starts and six overall appearances, Gonzalez owns a 6.57 ERA, 6.91 FIP plus a 5.53 xFIP to go along with a large 5.11 BB/9 speed that sits just underneath his 5.84 K/9 clip. He has also allowed 2.19 homers per nine innings also. Enter Walker who hits from the right side, however has hit right-handers better than he has lefties using a .233 ISO, .836 OPS, .348 wOBA plus also a 111 wRC+ versus righties this year. The numbers slip a bit in your home but his .227 ISO in the home versus righties this season is remarkable nonetheless. He hasn’t racked up a slew of hits lately, but the power remains constant with a set of homers as part of his past four strikes and he should really be in line for plenty of RBI chances tonight awarded Gonzalez’s enormous 1.78 WHIP along with the reality Walker is again estimated to hit out of the cleanup area tonight.
2B — Ketel Marte (ARI) — $4,100 vs. COL
Keep your eye on this one as Marte has overlooked each of the last two games with back tightness, but he has been available off the bench and might very well get back in the starting lineup tonight during this super positive matchup. Marte has been one of the very greatest surprise tales in the big leagues this season as he’s thrust himself to an MVP caliber player in age 25. Marte enters this one tonight with 25 home runs on the season and will be closing in on hitting as many as his previous career high of 14 that he posted just last year. Even the switch-hitting Marte has witnessed his power numbers surge most against left-handed projecting, but he enters this one sporting a .222 ISO, .919 OPS, .383 wOBA along with 134 wRC+ to the season vs right-handed pitching also. It is safe to say I will accept these amounts. Furthermore, the numbers are very similar in the home too. In addition, we get some stolen base upside down here as well as Marte has swiped eight luggage on the season, six of which have come at the expense of a right-handed pitcher. Before his injury blow off, Marte went 6 for 11 with 2 doubles and a homer on his last two matches, so let us hope he can jump right into the thick of things in this one tonight.
3B — Eduardo Escobar (ARI) — $4,000 vs. COL
Next person up from the four-man D-backs heap is Escobar who is hitting for more power than ever before here in the 2019 season. He has already put a fresh career-high with 28 home runs on the season, easily surpassing the 23 he hit last year in far fewer plate appearances and with plenty of matches remaining on the program. Like Marte, Escobar is also a switch-hitter, and like Marte, the energy numbers are much better compared to left handed pitching. However, he too remains sporting great numbers versus righties with a .236 ISO and .800 OPS against them on the season. Additionally, he is hitting righties to the tune of a .268 ISO, .881 OPS, .356 wOBA along with 116 wRC+ over the season in the home where that one is going to occur tonight. Escobar has been swinging a powerful bat of late as well as he’s doubled in 3 consecutive games and also added a homer in that interval too. He is now homered three occasions over his last seven games and will be riding a five-game hit streak into this 1 tonight. Additionally, we throw in a bit of stolen foundation upside since he’s swiped five bases on the year. A mainstay at the three-hole, Escobar will have lots of cross-category upside with him tonight and is possibly the very best third base option on this slate.
SS — Wilfredo Tovar (LAA) — $2,000 vs. TEX
After I filled in my piles in this one I’d a shortstop place open and just $2,100 to fulfill it. Of the limited names in that region, I enjoy Tovar the most because he takes on left-hander Kolby Allard and the Texas Rangers. The venue is really a hitter-friendly one at Globe Life Park at Texas. Secondly, the Angels are proposed to dent 5.7 runs as a result. Allard has published a 4.50 ERA in his 10 innings of work in the major league level to this point, but was fair at the Braves’ minor league system that year where he published a 4.17 ERA, but in addition a 4.64 FIP and also 4.36 xFIP. Not dreadful amounts, but not dominating figures, either. Nonetheless, I see worth in Tovar here. He does not hit for a whole lot of energy, but Tovar is productive versus left-handed pitching as he is hitting .273 using a healthful .351 OBP and 98 wRC+ on the season versus lefties. Furthermore, he has hit lefties for a big-time .346 typical and .815 OPS at the Triple-A level this year. We don’t have to dig too deep to get the last time Tovar delivered worth as he went 2 for 4 with a double and a run scored in yesterday’s series finale against the White Sox. The ceiling isn’t monstrous to make sure, but with a few more extra-base creation or even reaching base and scoring a run, Tovar has some nice worth upside in minimum price tonight.
OF — David Peralta (ARI) — $3,100 vs. COL
Completing our four-man D-backs stack is Peralta who’s projected to hit out of the precious two-hole in this 1 tonight. After breaking out with 30 homers and also a .223 ISO last season Peralta has just taken a tiny bit of a step backwards with only 12 homers and a .183 ISO this time round while also coping with some injuries also. Regardless of the inability to take last year’s complete success within this season, Peralta is at his finest versus right-handed nurturing and sports some very good numbers in situations similar to the person he finds himself at tonight. Peralta enters this one aporting a .213 ISO, .860 OPS, .357 wOBA and 117 wRC+ to the season versus right-handed pitching. He has also seen his numbers tick as much as some .221 ISO, .868 OPS, .362 wOBA along with also a 120 wRC+ at Chase Field on this season. The hits have not been arriving in waves late, but Peralta did hit a solo home run yesterdayhis second long ball during the previous six games. With no sneak on the season, we can basically erase any stolen foundation upside down, which means we’re here for the energy and the power only against a struggling right-hander tonight.
OF — Aristides Aquino (CIN) — $4,500 vs. SD
Not too long ago I still rostered Aquino at a Reds value stack at a cost of $2,300. Now just a few weeks after, his cost has nearly doubled as he has put the baseball world in fire 11 home runs in his first 17 games of his MLB career. We knew the energy was there as Aquino blasted 28 home runs in only 78 Triple-A matches this year when generating a .337 ISO in the process. Throughout 17 big league matches, he’s those 11 homers and a .595 ISO to boot. Of course, this type of production cannot realistically last for more, however I think he’s the opportunity to stay hot against Padres left-handed Eric Lauer tonight. Lauer owns a 4.55 ERA on the season, however also a 6.20 mark in the road where he’ll be for tonight’s contest at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. So much in his very brief big league career, Aquino is 8 to 14 with three home runs and a double against left-handed pitching, good for a trendy .714 ISO and 1.911 OPS plus a 368 wRC+. Not too shabby. In addition, he crushed lefties at the Triple-A degree as well with some 1.012 OPS against them as well as 12 home runs at only 90 at-bats from them. Needless to say, I believe we’ve got something to use here.
OF — Phillip Ervin (CIN) — $2,500 vs. SD
Next man up within my three-man Reds stack is Ervin who has handled himself quite well against left wing pitching in his brief major league moment. Ervin enters this 1 tonight with three long balls over the season along with a .210 ISO across 136 plate appearances at the major league level. The fantastic news for that matchup? Ervin is hitting .468 using a .404 ISO, 1.401 OPS, .563 wOBA along with 251 wRC+ over the season versus lefties while three of the home runs have come against southpaws in just 47 at-bats against them. Production versus left-handed pitching is not anything new for Ervin who owns a .343 average, .250 ISO, .993 OPS, .414 wOBA along with 157 wRC+ vs lefties to get his MLB career which crosses 140 at-bats contrary to them. The bat has been rather quiet of late outside of a double and a homer during the last week, and he’s without a multi-hit match since August 8th. However, a date using a left-handed pitcher who is struggling on the street in a hitter-friendly ball park ought to be precisely what Ervin should get his bat on trail tonight.
UTIL — Eugenio Suarez (CIN) — $3,800 vs. SD
Completing our three-man Reds stack and our lineup will be Suarez who loves himself some left-handed pitching, especially at home. Entering this 1 tonight, Suarez stays together with 34 home runs on the season, the exact same numbers he ended last year, though that total came in almost 100 extra plate appearances. His .274 ISO in this year sits over the .243 mark he submitted in 2018 as a outcome. Entering this one tonight, Suarez owns a .281 ISO, .957 OPS, .392 wOBA and 140 wRC+ to the season vs left-handed pitching. However, his production vs lefties explodes in the home as he possesses a .404 ISO, 1.257 OPS, .502 wOBA along with a 211 wRC+ in such circumstances. These are some totally massive amounts. Suarez has been on fire in the plate as well and is playing lots of long ball as he has hit five home runs on his last 11 games, such as a person in yesterday’s series finale with the Cardinals. He owns a .374 ISO, 1.034 OPS, .412 wOBA along with 153 wRC+ so far in the year’s second half. As a small side note, it is great to find two of the three steals in the season have come against a left-handed pitcher, so at least he is not scared to run versus southpaws. I think we have more than enough to use here to anticipate Suarez to have himself a night against a left-hander at home.
