04/28/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes


Slate Overview:

  • 10 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • DET @ CWS - Watch for rain.

  • PHI @ STL - Watch for rain.

  • BAL @ NYY - Wind blowing out to center 5-8 MPH.

  • COL @ SF - Wind blowing out to center 7-10 MPH.

  • 1st photo includes pitching data from 2020 & 2021

  • 2nd photo is only 2021 pitching data. Hitting metrics are only 2021 in both.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • Kyle Hendricks FIP is nearing 8.0 (Anything above 5 is classified as awful according to fangraphs). The Braves having a team avg .193 ISO against RHP isn't going to do him any favors either.

  • Justin dunn is due for some regression soon since his SIERA is a full 2.0 points higher than his era and the Astros are only striking out 20% of the time to RHP's while having a .178 team average ISO. Yordan being out of the lineup helps his case though.

  • Carlos Rondon has looked like one of the best pitchers in the league so far and tonight is facing a team that is historically bad against LHP's striking out almost 35% of the time and only having a .078 teams average ISO.....but you know how baseabll is this will be the night my Tigers somehow go off.
