Happy Father’s Day — today we have a typical Sunday where every team is in play- but we have to pay attention since it’s also a day of rest for many starter’s (especially catchers). At DIGGIN’ IN we try to find positive BVP (Batter vs. Pitcher) stats to assist in our DFS research. A criteria that I use is a minimum 10 plate appearances and research goes no further back than 5 years. Players change over the course of their career so it wouldn’t be beneficial or fair to make assumptions on certain veteran players (Adam Wainright or Jake Arrieta would come to mind). Here are today’s top BVP Picks:
RYAN BRAUN – OF- MILWAUKEE BREWERS:
11/26 with 3 HR and 9 RBI off Jeff Samardzija
MATT CHAPMAN – 3B- OAKLAND A’S
7/22 with 3 HR and 4 RBI off Mike Leake
ERIC SOGARD- 2B- TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Sogard is 6/14 with 2 triples and a 1.252 OPS off of Brad Peacock
All three players would make a great addition to any DFS lineup today.
Good Luck everyone!
