Two-Start Pitchers: Week 13 (6/24 – 6/30) and Streamer of the Week

Matt Bishop | June 24, 2019

STREAMER OF THE WEEK

Adam Plutko, SP CLE

(48% CBS, 4% ESPN, 10% Yahoo)

(3-1) 4.55 ERA 1.12 WHIP 7.16 K/9 0.98 BB/9

16.8% K-BB% 2.93 HR/9

Adam Plutko is 27 and only has 108.0 innings of major league service on his resume, but he has been relatively solid since his call up on 5/18 and could be a nice fill in this week. While his ERA is drastically inflated from a 7 run outing on 5/23, his peripherals (4.55 ERA 6.24 FIP 5.03 xFIP) are greatly skewed by a 2.93 HR/9, which is the 9th worst rate in baseball (minimum 20 IP). But there is hope: Continue reading

Joey Ricotta | June 23rd, 2019

The best day of the week in my opinion. Sunday is a day for relaxation, family, and football. Excuse me, baseball. Because baseball is the greatest sport ever created. Let’s take a look at some options for DFS today, the best day of the week. Continue reading

Dominant Closers: The Kirby Yates Edition

Alex Kielar | June 22, 2019

If someone would have told me before the season that Kirby Yates would have converted 26 of 26 save opportunities to this point in the year, I would have called them crazy. And by the way, 26 saves are tied for the most in Padres history, prior to the All-Star break and was accomplished by Heath Bell in 2011. Yates also has a streak of converting 33 straight saves dating back to last season and has been nearly un-hittable this year. Yates was tabbed the closer last season after the Padres dealt Brad Hand to the Indians. Continue reading

MLB DFS: Locks, Two Bats, and Two Stacks for June 21, 2019

Friday night special. Get those lineups set. Let’s take a look at some locks, two bats, and two stacks for the main slate of games ahead.

Locks

Chris Sale ($12,000 on DK and FD)

Does it matter what his price is? Chris Sale has been downright nasty and striking out everyone lately. Sale has double-digit strikeouts in eight of his last nine games. The Toronto Blue Jays will try to load up on right-handed hitters against him, but Sale should still be able to strikeout quite a few. Strikeouts are key in daily fantasy. The Blue Jays also have a weak .299 wOBA against lefties this season. Continue reading

The MLB Schedule should change. Here’s How

Tom Greene | June 21st, 2019

This week in Baseball (Yes, that #TWIB show on FOX is something I miss, too!) sees the return of Albert Pujols to St. Louis for the first time since 2012. It also saw the Astros visiting Cincinnati for the first time since their move to the American League in 2013. Let’s break this down for a second. Continue reading

FACT OR FICTION: THEM IS FIGHTIN’ WORDS

The Scorecrow MLB writers got together to collaborate on a full list of players that are for real and others who may be playing over their heads. Let us know what you think. Enjoy.

MIKE MOUSTAKAS IS GOOD AT HITTING – FACT

Kody Clawson (@kodyclawson)

The real fact of the matter is that Mike Moustakas has been good at hitting for a few years now. The move from Kauffman Stadium to Miller Park for his home games has finally given him the chance to show off his power. I was concerned that the move to second base would affect his hitting in some capacity, but this was an arbitrary hypothesis anyway. The only fantasy effect has been positive, as the added positional flexibility has only aided fantasy owners. Continue reading
