DFS - MLB - DraftKings - MLB Lineup - Main Slate - 8/14/2020

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!
We are on to our MLB lineups for the day and let us look at our DraftKings MLB Lineup which features a 13-game slate and starts at 7:05pm.
As for the weather today, we have a few minor threats with the WAS/BAL, CLE/DET, and PIT/CIN but all though games look at most like they would have a delay if anything.
The one concerning game is the KAN/MIN which have a few storms around as of now and is worth monitoring if you want to go with this game.
We’re going to stack the offense tonight and go with some value on the mound with both Jesus Luzardo of the Oakland Athletics & Spencer Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Jesus Luzardo is a flame thrower who has started to look like he is figuring things out at the MLB level as he has posted back-to-back decent starts w/ 18.6+ DraftKings points. Luzardo threw 89 pitches last game so we know Oakland will let him go 6+ innings if he is pitching well and as he has a career 10.1 K/9 ratio in the majors, I like his match-up against the San Francisco Giants.
Spencer Howard is one of the best pitching prospects in the MLB and although he was a bit shaky in his MLB debut agianst the Braves, you could certainly see the upside. Howard posted an incredible 12.0 k/9 ratio throughout his minor league career and as the Phillies did let him throw 81 pitches in his debut, I think he can get us 5-6 innings and possibility a win tonight.
For our offense, we have a 4-man stack of the New York Yankees agianst the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox have the worst pitching staff in the majors and after seeing Tampa Bay go crazy offensively agianst Boston, I expect the Yankees to do worse.
For the Yankees, we are going with Gary Sanchez, Luke Volt, DJ LeMahieu, and Aaron Hicks.
We wanted to get some action in the TEX/COL game at Coors Field and we spend up for both Joey Gallo of the Rangers & Charlie Blackmon of the Rockies.
We’re getting some great value with the Phillies Alec Bohm, especially as the Mets won’t be with Jacob deGrom tonight.
Rounding out our team, we’re going with Fernando Tatis Jr. of the San Diego Padres!
