Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
On the mound tonight for our MLB DraftKings lineup, we’re going to be paying up for Cleveland’s Mike Clevinger and going to go with the mid-tier option of Milwaukee’s Adrian Houser.
It has not been a great start for Clevinger this season, however, there is no doubt that he is still one of the better pitchers in MLB. Clevinger was outstanding last season, posting a career best 12.2 K/9 ratio and although he faces a tough Cincinnati offense, I just can’t pass up rostering Clevinger with his price tag only at $9,200.
Houser will be up against the Chicago White Sox tonight Houser and has some solid K-upside after posting a 9.5 K/9 ratio over his 111.1 IP last season. Chicago ranks 23rd in team strikeout rate on the season and as I think Houser will be able to limit the damage from LHB’s which have given him trouble in the past, I think he can get us a quality start tonight with 7-10 K’s.
As we’re spending up on pitching a bit, we can’t roster a complete Colorado stack, however, we still found room to get Nolan Arenado in our lineup.
We are going with 3-man stacks of Toronto Blue Jays and Minnesota Twins as I like both their matchups.
For the Blue Jays, we are getting value with Danny Jansen and going with both Vladimir Guerrero Jr. & Lourdes Gurriel Jr.
For the Twins, we’re going to get LHB’s in Luis Arraez, Max Kepler, and Jake Cave.
Rounding out our team, we’re going to go with Francisco Lindor in his solid match-up agianst the Cincinnati Reds.
