DFS - MLB - DraftKings - MLB Main Slate Lineup - 7/24/2020
Thursday, July 24th 2020 at 7:05 PM
Hope everyone enjoyed the start of the MLB season last night as although it was hectic getting the lineups ready with all the last minute changes, we were to get our lineups set and cashed in both our GPP’s & 50/50’s for both FanDuel & DraftKings!
Last night was a solid reminder that when preparing MLB DFS lineups, that you need to keep a very watchful eye on all the MLB news prior to first pitch!
Also, as we might be releasing multiple lineup updates from my first posted lineup, please make sure you follow me on Twitter as if I’m not near a computer and can’t update the website article, I will always make sure that I post my updated lineups on my Twitter (@BrettCU05)!
Let’s keep the winning going as we start the season and we take a look at our DraftKings lineup for tonight!
On the mound tonight, we are going to be rostering the Cardinals Jack Flaherty and the Red Sox’s Nathan Eovaldi.
Flaherty had an incredible 2019 season, finishing the year with a 2.75 ERA & 0.97 WHIP while posting a 10.59 K/9 ratio. Flaherty will be up agianst the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in which he dominated last season (15.0 IP, 1 ER, 18 K) and as he is priced at just $9,000, I think he is the top option value wise on the mound tonight on DraftKings.
I’m taking more of risk with my SP2 with Eovaldi, however, I love his upside in his match-up agianst the Baltimore Orioles tonight. Eovaldi struggled with injuries throughout last season, however, has looked extremely sharp in spring training this season, going 8.0 IP, giving up 0 ER’s while striking out 12. Eovaldi has great stuff which includes a high 90’s fastball and as I’m not terrified by what the Baltimore is bringing to the plate tonight, I like saving some salary for our offense by rolling the dice with Eovaldi.
Kicking off our offense, we’re going to be going with 4-man stack of the Cleveland Indians. We are going to go with Ceasar Hernandez, Carlos Santana, Franmil Reyes, and Jordan Luplow in their prime match-up at home agianst the LHP Danny Duffy of the Kansas City Royals.
Danny Duffy had some decent years with the Royals, however, this is a pitcher that is past his prime and certainly does not have anything new that the Cleveland Indians haven’t seen before.
Both Santana (.444 avg, 1.251 OPS, 3 HR in 36 AB) and Luplow (.500 avg, 1.917 OPS, 1 HR in 4 AB) have had success agianst Duffy in their career and we know the type of power that Reyes brings to the plate after hitting 37 HR’s last season while posting a .881 OPS vs. LHP. Hernandez will be batting leadoff and in a game in which I’m projecting a bunch of Cleveland runs, I’ll take their leadoff hitter at a nice value of just $3,800.
We’re going with a 2-man stack of the Boston Red Sox tonight in Xander Bogaerts & J.D. Martinez as they have one of the best match-up’s on the slate agianst the Orioles Tommy Milone who really faded down the stretch last season and shows you the state of the Baltimore Orioles pitching staff if he is their opening day starter.
Xander Bogaerts had one of his best offensive seasons last year, finishing 2019 with a .309 average with 33 HR’s & 117 RBI’s. Bogaerts posted a solid .337 average/1.001 OPS at Fenway Park last season and is 6 for 12 against the left-handed Milone in his career.
J.D. Martinez surprised many with opting to stay with the Red Sox during the off-season and must be considered one of the best plays tonight. Martinez dominated LHP last season to the tune of a .887 Slugging % & 1.381 OPS and comes into tonight’s match-up with a .333 average & 1.122 OPS with 2 HR’s in 18 AB’s agianst Milone in his career.
Francisco Mejia is talented young player for the San Diego Padres and has some sneaky value tonight at just $3,100 in a match-up agianst the LHP Madison Bumgarner who tends to give up HR’s to RHB’s.
Rounding out our team, we are going with Oakland’s Matt Chapman in his match-up against the LHP Andrew Hanley of the Los Angeles Angels. Chapman has some tremendous power against LHP which should bode well agianst Henley who is no stranger of giving up HR’s to RHB’s.
Good Luck with your lineups tonight!
