Last night the Houston Astros got their first win of the series behind a solid performance from Zack Greinke. Tonight they will look to even the series at two games apiece. Let’s see what players we should have in our MLB DFS lineups.
All prices are from DraftKings
Yuli Gurriel ($10,800 Captain, $7,200 Utility) – Gurriel is 4-14 with a couple of doubles in the World Series so far. The price has come down from the $7,800 it has been for the past two games. I’ll take the discount for a guy who hit 31 HRs and drove in 104 with a .298 BA during the season.
Asdrubal Cabrera ($12,900 Captian, $8,600 Utility) – One of the hottest hitters on either side, Cabrera is 5-13 in the series. It will be a bullpen game for the Astros, but Cabrera is one guy the lefty-righty maneuvering won’t matter to. As a switch-hitter, he is quite even from both sides of the plate. In his career he has a .754 OPS vs righties and a .760 vs lefties.
Carlos Correa ($11,400 Captain, $7,600 Utility) – Another guy who is a discount, down from $8,200 last night. That is a little surprising considering Correa had a double in Game Three and is facing a lefty tonight in Patrick Corbin. Take the savings when you can get it as Correa can definitely blast one and return great value.
***Notes – The Astros have struggled against lefties this postseason. James Paxton and Blake Snell both pitched well against them. Corbin has struck out 21 in 11 innings in his two starts this postseason. If you can, pay the $10,400 for the Nats’ lefty.
