MLB Daily Fantasy Play for May 17, 2016

Pitchers:

 

P  Kyle Hendricks CHC ($8,400 vs Milwaukee Brewers)

Through 6 starts this season, Hendricks comes into tonight’s slate with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Although he does not rack up as much strikeouts as the other pitchers tonight (still decent with a 7.82 K/9), Hendricks has been very consistent this year and he faces a Milwaukee Brewers team which he has faired well against in the past. Brewers hitters are a combined 9 – 64 (.141) against Hendricks and none of their players have a hit a homerun against him . It is also worthwhile to note that the Brewers offence has been struggling recently with only 13 runs in their last 5 games. After posting two consecutive performances with over 20 Fpts, expect Hendricks to produce 20-25 Fpts tonight against the Brewers.

 

P  Madison Bumgarner SFG ($12,500 vs San Diego Padres)

Over 3 starts in May, Bumgarner is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA and he has faced some of the most powerful batting lineups in baseball (COL, TOR, NYM). He takes to the mound tonight versus a woeful San Diego Padres team that is ranked 24th in the MLB in runs scored, not to mention Padres batters are a combined 34 – 163 (.209) and they have struck out 50 times versus the Giants ace. On the topic of strikeouts, MadBum has racked up 60 strikeouts and a 10.87 K/9  over the 2016 season.  It may seem like he’s a lot to pay for but with numbers like this , expect a guaranteed 30+Fpts performance from Bumgarner tonight.

 

Kyle Hendricks, CHC ($8400 salary): Hendricks comes into tonight’s game with a very respectable 3.03 ERA and 1.01 WHIP.  He is also facing a Brewers team in which he has dominated over the course of his career.  They are hitting a combined .141 with a .156 slugging through 64 at bats.  The Brewers also have the third most amount of strikeouts in the MLB which could bode very well for owners considering strikeouts are a huge point factor on Draftkings.  Hendricks K/9 sits at 7.8 before tonight’s matchup and he has a very real chance of improving on that number.  On a night where there are tons of stars on the mound, Hendricks could be a great GPP pair with one of the multiple aces on tonight’s slate.

Cole Hamels, Tex ($10 500 salary): Hamels has a very favourable matchup against one of the lowest scoring teams in the A.L, the Oakland Athletics.  The game is also being played in the very spacious O. Co. Coliseum.  Hamels road ERA is sparkling this year at 0.69 and he has always been a consistent source of strikeouts since he has entered the league.  He has yet to give up a home run away from Texas this season and it is very likely that trend will continue.  His salary is considerably lower than some other options that have the potential to reach the same point totals.  He will be overlooked on a slate that includes phenoms Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner.  Take the salary you save from taking Hamels and use it to upgrade other spots in the lineup.

 

 

 

Other Notable Pitchers:

Cole Hamels TEX ($10,500 vs OAK), Wei-Yin Chen MIA ($8,500 vs PHI), Rick Porcello BOS ($9,500 vs KAN)

 

Team Stacks:

 

Seattle Mariners (vs  Ubaldo Jimenez  @BAL)

Ubaldo Jimenez has not been sharp at all this season. He has a 4.87 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP over 7 starts this season. Furthermore, left-handed batters have been hitting the ball real well against him. Left-handed batters are 26 of 70 (.371) against Jimenez this season. The Seattle Mariners have a heavy left-handed batting order as 7 of their 9 batters bat left handed. One particular Mariner that has had success against Jimenez in the past is Robinson Cano ($5,300) who is 6-11 (.545) with 2 home-runs. If you do decide to stack Seattle, avoid Nelson Cruz ($4,700) who is 0-12 against Jimenez in his career.

 

Minnesota Twins (vs Mike Pelfrey @DET)

Pelfrey has struggled mightily this year with an ERA of 5.80 and a WHIP of 1.85. These numbers do not get any better when he is facing Minnesota. Although they have not faced each other often, Twins batters are a combined 8-23 (.348) lifetime against Pelfrey. Over the past 4 games, the Twins have put up more than 5 runs in each of them. For a cheap stack, the Twins core batters are destined to do damage against Pelfrey and the tigers.

 

Baltimore (vs SEA, LHP Wade Miley):

Manny Machado,  Adam Jones, Mark Trumbo, Chris Davis, Jonathan Schoop

The hitters have a favourable matchup versus Seattle’s left handed pitcher, Wade Miley.  The team leads the league in homers and playing in Baltimore, the baseballs tend to just fly out of the park.  There is a very real chance that multiple homers will come in tonight’s game.  Miley is giving up almost 2 home runs per 9 innings to right handed batters.  Even the lefty Chris Davis should have a productive night, he has decent numbers versus Miley albeit a small sample size.   With the power in the Orioles lineup, stacking against Miley tonight should yield favourable results.

Boston (@ KC, RHP Yordano Ventura):

David Ortiz, Travis Shaw, Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Dustin Pedroia

As most baseball fans have noticed, the Red Sox have been absolutely on fire over their last two series.  They managed to score a total of 73 runs in only 7 games (10.4 runs/game).  There is no reason to expect that to change against a struggling Kansas City team and pitcher, Yordano Ventura.  It is not the long ball that has hurt Ventura, but rather the walks.  He is averaging almost 7 BB/9 this season.  Throw that number in with the Red Sox power and there is potential for Boston to continue their hot streak against the young hurler.  I would suggest getting all the lefties plus Betts in the lineup and then deciding whether Bogaerts or Pedroia will make the cut.
