We have a enormous 15-game MLB main slate on tap tonight having tons of chances throughout.
Let’s get right into tonight’s FanDuel MLB DFS Choices and see if we could enter the weekend with a little cash in our pockets!
P — Charlie Morton (TB) — $11,300 vs. DET
Two of the AL’s best Cy Young candidates are around this slate as Justin Verlander chooses on the Oakland A’s in Oakland while fellow right-hander Charlie Morton takes about the Tigers tonight in Tampa Bay. Of the two, Morton gets the best matchup by far and given that the price tag is $900 cheaper, it wasn’t a difficult decision to roll with the big Tampa hurler in this one tonight. Morton enters this man wearing a 2.90 ERA, a figure that’s extremely much supported by his own 2.79 FIP and also 3.25 xFIP too. He is also punching a whopping 11.11 batters per nine innings this season and that number might well get a boost tonight against a Tigers team which ranks 28th with a 26.1% K-rate against right-wing pitching on the year while their .285 wOBA from them positions 29th. Morton has confronted the Tigers after this year — in Detroit — he hurled seven shutout innings with eight strikeouts. The fact that this one is taking place at Tampa bodes well to its upside as well where Morton possesses a 2.75 ERA, but in addition a 2.42 FIP, 2.83 xFIP plus a gigantic 12.45 K/9 clip to go along with a 5.94 K/BB ratio. Needless to say, the ceiling is extremely high, as is the floor, within this matchup tonight.
C/1B — Rowdy Tellez (TOR) — $2,200 vs. SEA
The Blue Jays and Mariners open up a series in the hitter-friendly Rogers Centre in Toronto tonight and I like me some Blue Jays bats in this one. The Mariners will ship opener Matt Wisler to the mound, a right-hander, but Wisler is only expected to throw one innings or two innings max. In this 1 tonight. He’ll subsequently be accompanied by left-hander Wade Leblanc who owns a ghastly 7.64 ERA on the road this year in addition to a 5.68 FIP and huge 2.73 HR/9 rate. After Leblanca Mariners bullpen that positions 23rd with a 4.88 ERA on the season will then take over. Obviously, there’s opportunity for the Blue Jays to do some damage here. In the season’s second halfof the Blue Jays rank first in baseball using a .218 ISO, therefore they’ve pretty much bang for as much power as every team in the league during the previous month. Input Tellez who swings from the left side, but has some inverse splits as he’s posted superior numbers versus left-handed pitching. He possesses a .221 ISO along with .782 OPS against lefties over this season, but the figures explode at home versus lefties where he owns a .333 ISO, .906 OPS, .369 wOBA along with a 131 wRC+ from them. That is fantastic news for when he confronts Leblanc, that he surely will a few occasions, giving him a ton of worth upside in this one tonight.
2B — Marco Hernandez (BOS) — $2,100 vs. BAL
After filling in my most important piles within this lineup, I’d just $2,200 to use on a second baseman, and while there are in reality a few practical options at the cost and beneath, my choice of the mess is Hernandez who lines up against right-hander Aaron Brooks of the Orioles tonight in Boston. Brooks has struggled this year as he possesses a 6.35 ERA, 6.13 FIP and also a 5.28 xFIP over the season to go along with a large 2.36 HR/9 mark also. The ERA belongs to 7.31 on the road along with the HR/9 creeps around 2.53 HR/9, so we certainly possess a targetable pitcher, also Boston’s 7.7 run projection within this one proves that. Hernandez does not attract a wealth of home run power to the table, but he has handled himself quite well against righties with a .333 average, .188 ISO, .881 OPS, .370 wOBA and a 127 wRC+ from righties in a little 48 at-bat sample dimensions on this year. Hernandez hit .319 with the .852 OPS against righties at Triple-A this season as well. A few extra-base power are a bonus in this case, however I sense Hernandez can get on base a couple of times and possibly score a few runs given the massive streak projection against the worst total pitching staff in baseball this season.
3B — Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR) — $3,400 vs. SEA
Next guy up in our Blue Jays stack is Guerrero who will actually be leading off this pile from the projected three-hole tonight. Guerrero has been red-hot at the plate during the last three walks later putting on this epic practice at the Home Run Derby in Cleveland through the All-Star break. Since returning from the rest, Guerrero has produced a .222 ISO, .913 OPS, .382 wOBA along with also a 140 wRC+. Moreover, in the month of August to this point, Guerrero has submitted a .275 ISO, .990 OPS, .407 wOBA along with also a 157 wRC+. Obviously, he is swinging a hot bat as well as his game logs are laced with multi-hit matches on a regular basis. Guerrero will certainly get to face Wisler from the first inning of the 1 tonight, which is a fantastic thing as his .208 ISO, .878 OPS, .369 wOBA along with 131 wRC+ on the period versus righties greatly simplifies his characters against southpaws. He will certainly face Leblanc at least once as well, but he’ll observe both righties and lefties in this one tonight and given just how sexy his bat has been in general recently I’m just not too concerned with his entire battles versus lefties this season. The 20-year-old’s future is sky-high, however, I also believe that’s the case for the here and now in this matchup tonight.
SS — Amed Rosario (NYM) — $2,500 vs. KC
The Mets continue their second half roster into Kansas City this weekend as they accept left-hander Mike Montgomery in the show opener tonight. Montgomery has been great during his MLB career, but he has struggled to find it this season as he possesses a 5.19 ERA. 5.09 FIP along with a 1.79 HR/9 clip too. He is coming off a enormous outing where he hurled seven shutout innings with a whopping 12 strikeouts from a barbarous Tigers offense, but he owns a 4.63 ERA as a starter in five starts this year, all of which have come with the Royals after being acquired by the Chicago Cubs. As a consequence of Montgomery’s work and also an undependable Royals bullpen, the Mets are estimated to score an extremely healthful 5.5 runs within this one tonight, so I will unleash a three-man Mets stack as a result, beginning in with Rosario. There’s a genuine nice blend of power and speed in with 12 homers and 14 steals on the year, however the amounts against southpaws are enormous. Against lefties this season, Rosario has posted a .250 ISO, .905 OPS, .379 wOBA and 136 wRC+. Additionally, he is punished left-handers about the road to the tune of a .297 ISO, 1.062 OPS, .436 wOBA plus a 176 wRC+. Rosario has also assemble a .187 ISO, .948 OPS, .395 wOBA along with 150 wRC+ as returning from the All-Star fracture on July 12th. The stolen base upside is not so large with just two of his 14 beats coming from lefties, but that which points towards a whole lot of worth upside here at this price, especially considering his placement in the lineup out of this projected leadoff spot tonight.
OF — Randal Grichuk (TOR) — $3,300 vs. SEA
Next man up at our four-man Blue Jays pile is Grichuk who we shouldn’t be too worried about the splits with as he strikes both left and right-handers nicely and has during his career. The bat has become more productive against left handed pitching, which is likely a good thing considering he is projected for his sixth on the lineup and will hence likely face the lefty Leblanc at least twice in this one. He possesses a .194 ISO, .781 OPS, .330 wOBA along with 105 wRC+ against lefties this season. But he’ll also likely face at least one righty tonight, and that’s okay too as the energy is raised versus righties with a .213 ISO against them, but also an adequate .726 OPS, .303 wOBA along with 86 wRC+. The thing I like about Grichuk the most is that he’s on fire at the plate such as his teammate Guerrero. Grichuk owns a gigantic .412 ISO, 1.115 OPS, .448 wOBA and 185 wRC+ at the month of August for this stage. He’s homered in two of his last three matches and has blended in a double, five runs scored and five RBI at the time too. Finally, it’s nice to see he’s a great deal more production at home where he possesses a .256 ISO, .803 OPS, .331 wOBA plus a 106 wRC+ on this season. Lots to like in this matchup as well.
OF — Teoscar Hernandez (TOR) — $3,000 vs. SEA
Completing our four-man powerful Blue Jays pile is Hernandez who should have at least a couple of repetitions with Leblanc tonight and that is extremely good news considering the damage he’s done versus southpaws on the season. Hernandez enters this one tonight sporting a .231 ISO, .781 OPS, .324 wOBA along with also a 101 wRC+ from them on the season. As soon as it’s wonderful to see him hitting lefties nicely as he’ll see Leblanc tonight, but it’s also wonderful to find he’s been swinging the bat much better against righties, unlike earlier in the year. He is hit righties to the point where he owns a .228 ISO contrary to them while he has also ruined righties in the home to the song of a huge .297 ISO to go together with an .809 OPS, .331 wOBA and 106 wRC+. His low batting average takes away in the OBP which subsequently drags the wOBA and wRC+ figures, but to be honest I’m entirely here for the raw energy and his ISO figures give us plenty of reason to believe he sports electricity to spare, particularly against a pitching staff that permitted lots of home runs on the year. Together with 19 long balls on the season and even four steals to boot, I’m liking the odds of some extra-base electricity from the 26-year-old in this 1 tonight.
OF — J.D. Davis (NYM) — $3,100 vs. KC
We’ll be finishing this lineup using a set of Mets to finish a three-man Mets stack, beginning here with Davis who’s in the midst of a breakout year with the Mets thanks to becoming near full-time reps compared to his prior time spent using a loaded Astros lineup. While his bat has significantly enhanced all-around, Davis is swinging a deadly bat against left wing nurturing that bodes well with this matchup tonight against Montgomery and the Royals. His breaks are actually pretty even on the summer, however his .214 ISO, .901 OPS, .376 wOBA along with 137 wRC+ do have a small edge on his own .201 ISO, .878 OPS, .368 wOBA along with 132 wRC+ against righties. The one thing that I really don’t enjoy with Davis is that he has fought on the road this season where he has hit just five of his 14 home runs, but he will possess a gigantic .340 ISO, 1.110 OPS, .442 wOBA and a 181 wRC+ to the month of August to this stage and had four hits, a steal, and two RBI in his final road series and homered and doubled in his preceding road series. I am eager to place the home/road splits aside to get a hitter that is possibly the most improved in baseball this season and one which is matchup proof because of his big-time amounts versus both lefties and righties this year.
UTIL — Pete Alonso (NYM) — $4,000 vs. KC
Completing our three-man Mets heap is Alonso who’s making a mockery of their NL Rookie of the Year race this year. The first baseman and 2019 Home Run Derby champ enters this one just one home run shy of the 40 home run mark which would be an all-time record for a beginner, knocking the 39 that Cody Bellinger launched in 2017. The power numbers are simply massive all-around and there’s simply no openings here. Against left-handed nurturing, ” he owns a gigantic .393 wOBA, .992 OPS, .397 wOBA and 152 wRC+. That is the fantastic news, of course, as he confronts a left-handed starting pitcher. Though the most is much more effective at home, Alonso still pwms that a .300 ISO, .831 OPS, .343 wOBA along with 116 wRC+ on the season against left-handers around the road, or so the home/road splits are nothing to worry about here. His production dipped, by his own lofty standards, from the month of July but Alonso is once again on fire in August using a .340 ISO, 1.074 OPS, .436 wOBA along with 177 wRC+?? to this stage from the month. After homering in four straight matches from August 5th through 9th, Alonso went deep at yesterday’s outburst in Atlanta in which he recorded five hits and six RBI. The 24-year-old has really place the baseball world on fire this season and that he makes for a wonderful play to cap this 1-3 Mets heap from a struggling starter and shaky bullpen tonight.
