Today’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Top Pitcher
Yu Darvish – Yu is about as can’t miss as starting pitchers get. In his short career, Darvish is 3-0 with a 1.9 ERA. He has racked up 33 strikeouts in 23.2 innings pitched against the Astros. Additionally Vegas has Texas as a monster favorite, so a win is very obtainable.
Today’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Top Hitters
Paul Goldschmidt – Whenever Goldy plays against a mediocre lefty daily fantasy baseball players ears perk up. If you haven’t surmised, today happens to be that day. Paul gets to face Drew Pomeranz, who is coming off a rough season debut in his last start. I don’t expect things will get any better for Drew today.
Adrian Beltre – We called it that Adrian would carry the momentum from his 2 HR game into yesterday’s game and he made us look smart by banging out another dinger. With Beltre this hot and a plus match-up vs a pedestrian lefty, we are doubling down on Adrian to pay off today as well.
David Ortiz – Papi was given the day off yesterday and he still found a way to hit a pinch hit bomb late in the game. Today he gets a sweet match-up against Jerome Williams, who has homered against twice in just five career ABs. Oh, and he’s batting .359 with a 1.180 OPS vs righties this year, so there is that as well.
Nelson Cruz – Yep, I’m picking on the Astros again. More specifically, Dallas Keuchel, the poor soul who gets to face the Rangers today. Nelson smacked a 3-run homer last night and I like his chances to have multiple RBI opportunities again today.
The previous picks should give your team a nice edge today, but if you really want to maximize your team’s chances of success today, follow the link to help you fill out the rest of your team.
