DFS - MLB - DraftKings - MLB Lineup - Main Slate - 8/7/20
Friday, August 7th, 2020 at 7:05 PM
Hope everyone is having a great Friday!
We are on to our MLB lineups for the day and let’s take a look at our DraftKings MLB Lineup which features a 13-game slate and starts at 7:05pm.
Does not look we really have any weather concerns tonight so feel free to fire up anyone on the slate!
On the mound tonight, we’re going with Cleveland’s Aaron Civale and Seattle’s Yusei Kikuchi.
Civale has been outstanding in his first two starts this season as he comes into this match-up with a 3.75 ERA while compiling 18 K’s in just 12.0 IP. We saw another RHP, Josh Lindblom, have success with K’s last night agianst the White Sox and with Civale solid control, I think he certainly have an opportunity to get up to double-digit K’s tonight.
Kikuchi struggled in his first season in the MLB last season, however, has looked better so far this season and is coming off one of his better performances in his MLB career agianst the Astros (6.0 IP, 0 ER, 9 K). Kikuchi is a great salary saver on tonight’s slate with his price still set at just $5,000 and I’ll take my chances with him tonight.
On the offensive end, we are going with a 4-man stack of the Toronto Blue Jays in their match-up against Ryan Weber of the Boston Red Sox. Weber has really struggled this season as he is coming into this game with a 11.57 ERA in his 7.0 IP while allowing his opponents to post a .345 average/1.253 slugging percentage against him.
For the Blue Jays, we’re going with Rowdy Tellez, Cavan Biggio, Bo Bichette, and Randal Grichuk.
Staying in this match-up, I’m going to be going with Boston’s Rafael Devers as I am expecting him to break out of his early season slump in a good match-up agianst the Blue Jay’s Tanner Roark.
J.T. Realmuto is coming off a huge series agianst the New York Yankees (6-10, 5 R, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 2 BB) and I think his bat stays hot agianst the RHP Kyle Wright of the Atlanta Braves.
I’m going to go with Nick Castellanos who has always had great success agianst LHP.
Rounding out the team, we’re going with Minnesota’s powerful leadoff hitter in Max Kepler in his nice match-up against the HR-prone Jakob Junis of the Kansas City Royals.
