Top Daily Fantasy Baseball Pick
Yu Darvish: Darvish has showed signs of improved control this spring, a weakness during his rookie season. His overpowering stuff should be more than enough to handle a young Astros lineup, similar to his performance last June against them when he pitched seven innings and allowed only two earned runs while striking out eleven.

Yesterday’s Daily Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit Recap
Clayton Kershaw: Kershaw was the best pitcher of the night. He pitched a 4-hit, complete game shutout win with 7 strikeouts (K).
Bryce Harper: It took Harper just two at-bats to remind everybody why he is considered a phenom. He hit two solo shots, the only offense in the game. The best hitter of the night finished 2-4 with 2 HR.
Jeff Samardzija: Samardzija confirmed that he owns the Pittsburgh Pirates, pitching 8 scoreless innings with 10 K and just two hits allowed.
Carlos Gonzalez: Cargo went deep in the 5th inning and also hit a single while scoring two runs. Pretty good day in the office.
Troy Tulowitzki: Tulo is back! He hit a two-run HR off Gallardo in the third inning and added a single later, finishing 2 for 5.
Aramis Ramirez: Aramis was key to the Brewers win last night. He doubled in two runs in the 8th inning to put them ahead 4-3 at the time. On the night, he went 2-4 with the double, 2 RBI and a walk.
Shin-Soo Choo: Choo had two of the three Reds hits in the 13-inning loss to the Angels. He finished 2 for 5 with a double and scored the only run for Cincinnati.
Joe Mauer: Mauer just knows how to hit against Verlander. He went 2-4 with a double and was the best offensive player for the Twins.
Justin Verlander: Verlander wasn’t very efficient last night, throwing a lot of pitches and going only 5 innings. However, he still recorded the win and struck out seven batters while allowing only three hits and two walks.
Omar Infante: Infante was a good sleeper pick, going 2-4 with an RBI in the Tigers win.
Starlin Castro: Castro hit two singles in four trips and also stole a base in the win against the Pirates.
Alexei Ramirez: The Cuban Missile didn’t launch last night, but Ramirez had a nice game with two singles as he finished 2-3.
John Lester: The Yankees made Lester work a lot, so he was able to go just 5 innings. He won the game and allowed 5 hits, 2 BB, and 2 ER while picking up 7 K. A pretty nice start to what should be the rebound season for him.
Matt Holliday: Holliday hit an RBI double in the first inning to open the scoring but went 0-3 thereafter as the Cardinals came up short in Arizona.
Ichiro Suzuki: Surprisingly, Ichiro hit 7th in the Yankees lineup yesterday and went 1-4 with a single.
Andre Ethier: Ethier didn’t capitalize on a great matchup vs. Matt Cain yesterday as he finished 1-4 with an infield single, an RBI, and two strikeouts.
Billy Butler: Butler went 1-3 last night with a single and a walk.
John Jay: Jay went 1-4 with a single and two strikeouts as the Cardinals recorded just 5 hits total in the game.
Brett Anderson: Anderson suffered a loss as the A’s hitters weren’t able to get him any support. He battled with his control but was able to minimized the damage, finishing with 7 innings, 4 hits, 2 earned runs 4 BB and 6 K.
Jonathan Lucroy: Lucroy didn’t record a hit, going 0-4, but he did have the walk-off RBI on the night. Only a small compensation for daily fantasy owners.
Ryan Howard: Howard was the biggest unpleasant surprise of last night. Despite the great matchup and great history in Atlanta, he went 0-5 with an RBI.
Rob Brantly: Brantly wasn’t able to figure out Strasburg, who was on his game. He went hitless at 0-3.
Marco Scutaro: Scutaro didn’t record a hit against the great Kershaw, but then again only Pagan and Sandoval did. Scutaro finished 0-4 with a strikeout.
Ryan Zimmerman: Zimmerman had a tough day, just like any Nationals hitter not named Harper. He wasn’t able to put the ball in play and finished 0-3 with 3 K.
