In MLB by devinLeave a Comment

Before we dive in to today’s slate, lets take a look at how we did yesterday. Yesterday we listed 6 players, here is how each one did. 

Josh Bell- 3 Run homer. 34.9 Fanduel points

Bryan Reynolds- 0 homers. 18.9 Fanduel points

Nick Senzel- Solo homer. 21.7 Fanduel points

Eugenio Suarez- 0 homers. 6 Fanduel Points

Austin Meadows- 0 homers. 18.4 Fanduel Points.

Kevin Cron- 0 homers. 15.2 Fanduel Points.

Even though we just got the 2 homers, every player but Suarez had a great day. We will take 15.2+ points all day!

Early Slate

Bryce Harper- Our next pick is another guy who finds himself against a pitcher that struggles mightily against the opposite handedness. Lets take a look at some numbers.

Like Luplow above, you can see we are looking at a lot of green! Also like Luplow, Harper has had a bit of success against Hudson with a homer in 4 at bats to go along with 2 walks, a single, 3 runs scored and 4 RBI. Add in the fact that it is warm with winds blowing out in Philly and Harper has a solid chance to send one long!

Main Slate

Jordan Luplow– Our first pick is a surprising leader of our new rankings system. Lets take a look at some numbers for both Luplow and the opposing pitcher, all numbers based on handedness of the batter and pitcher.

As you can see, Luplow is crushing lefties early in his career and he is facing a lefty who struggles mightily against righties. A recipe we like! Not surprisingly, Luplow has 3 homers against Banuelos in just 5 at bats!

Bonus Picks: Some Mini Stacks: Francisco Lindor/Carlos Santana (can be paired with Luplow). Joey Gallo/Shin-Soo Choo. J.D. Martinez/Mookie Betts.
