 MLB DFS Cash Breakdown - 6/21
Posted by Ted Schuster on Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 02:42

We have just 7 games on the evening slate with a couple of games that do have some weather questions.  Hopefully the games get played because they do feature some very attractive bats.  This breakdown is based on the main slate as the afternoon slate is not worth getting involved in.

 MLB DFS Cash Game Breakdown - 6/20
Posted by Nick Rodriguez on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 16:58

Today’s Cash Game Breakdown will provide rankings for the seven-game Early Slate that begins at 12:35 p.m. ET. It will probably also include a full breakdown for the seven-game Main Slate that starts at 7:05 p.m. ET.

 

WEATHER CONCERNS

It’s only 10:55 p.m. ET when I’m looking at weather radars, so I strongly recommend looking for updates throughout the day. As of this moment, BOS vs. MIN, MIL vs. PIT, CWS vs. CLE and BAL vs. WSH all have precipitation over 20 percent at first pitch.

1. Charlie Morton- On a short slate for pitching this is a very easy call as the number one option and, in my opinion, there is no case to be made for an alternative as the #1 option.

Posted by Vlad Sedler on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 14:23

The Mets and Rockies are the only teams projected to drive in five runs or more with the Red Sox conservatively projected (4.85 runs) today given how solid Lance Lynn has been lately (21 DKP over last four starts).

 By the Numbers - 6/20

@

  • Andrew Cashner v. Gio Gonzalez

Cashner:

  • Never been a big strikeout guy. Hovers just over 7 K's per 9 IP for much of his career
  • The Walk rate is elevated this year from his norm. He’s up over 4 and that walk rate has increased as he has aged
  • He’s been bad to both sides of the plate this year as both have over a .500 slugging. For his career though, lefties have always been the better way to go after him
  • Cashner has seen his numbers gradually regress over the years. His GB rate is down, the FB rate is creeping up, and his hard hit rate is higher too. All three of things are negative for him.
  • He has walked a big 10% of batters and has a HR/9 of 1.60+. Both of those numbers are bad too
  • Nationals are very solid against right-handed pitching, especially with Eaton and Murphy, two of the better bats against righties back in the lineup. This is a solid spot for the Nats

Nationals: Adam Eaton, Bryce Harper, Juan Soto, Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner

Gio:

  • Solid strikeout stuff, just shy of a K per inning, but he does walk a lot of guys too, usually just a tad under 4 per 9
  • The splits are usually severe with Gio. He is very tough on fellow lefties, but righties always hit him much better
  • 28% hard contact for his career with 48% ground ball rate. Both of those are very good numbers
  • Low HR rate for Gio too, always under 1 per 9, which is good considering that is how the Orioles tend to get runs when they do
  • The Orioles are not a team that scores many runs as the 87 wRC+ can attest to, but they are 23rd in k-rate just barely over a 20%, so the strikeout upside might not be there for Gio 

Orioles: Manny Machado (The other big righties have all underperformed this year, so outside of Machado, I can’t trust guys like Schoop, Trumbo, Jones, or Mancini that much)

 MLB DFS Cash Breakdown - 6/19
Posted by Ted Schuster on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 16:58

There is a full slate of games for Tuesday with some possible weather concerns.  The Cubs and Dodgers will play a split doubleheader to make up for the rainout on Monday, but we should have lineups out for the 2nd game assuming we don’t have any rain delays for the afternoon game.  You will have plenty of ways to build lineups on Tuesday which makes for a great slate.

 

WEATHER CONCERN

Baltimore Orioles @ Washington Nationals will have afternoon storms, but it is expected to clear for the game to get played.  The Nationals are usually soft when it comes to game cancellations, so it will need to be monitored just in case.
