Hope everyone is having a great Monday.
We got some great MLB action tonight and let us look at our DraftKings MLB lineup which features a 7-game slate that starts at 7:10pm!
Looking at the weather, it looks solid. Some slight weather for MIN/CLE but nothing that we really should have to worry about. I think everyone is safe to go on this slate.
On the mound tonight, we are going to pay up for the Trevor Bauer of the Cincinnati Reds and get some nice value for Jesus Luzardo of the Oakland Athletics.
Paying up for Trevor Bauer as I think this is a no-brainer against a Milwaukee Brewers team who have struggled with strikeouts agianst RHP. Bauer has an incredible 43.6 K% so far this season and I think we could see a complete game, 15 K performance from Bauer tonight.
Jesus Luzardo is flame thrower who has been solid this season as he comes into this game with a 3.67 ERA while sporting a 9.0 K/9 ratio. Texas is one of the worst hitting teams in the league as they come into this game with a team batting average of just .210 and as I think Luzardo will be able to get us 6-8 K’s tonight, I think he hits value at $7,400.
On the offensive end, we are going to start off with a 3-man stack of the Arizona Diamondbacks in their match-up agianst the RHP Ryan Castellani of the Colorado Rockies. Castellani has been solid so far for the Rockies, however, he did struggle in his last outing agianst the Astros and the Diamondbacks provide some nice salary relief after paying up so much for Bauer.
For the Diamondbacks, we are going to go with Ketel Marte, Starling Marte & David Peralta.
We have a 3-man stack of the Cincinnati Reds against the LHP Brett Anderson of the Milwaukee Brewers. Anderson has been solid this season, however, he is allowing RHB’s to hit .283 against him and I like the value that Curt Casali, Matt Davidson & Eugenio Suarez have tonight.
Rounding out the team, we are going to going with a 2-man stack of Javier Baez & Kyle Schwarber in their match-up agianst the rookie Casey Mize of the Tigers.
