05/12/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes


Slate Overview:

  • 10 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • Rain:

  • Oak @ BOS

  • Wind:

  • SEA @ LAD - Wind blowing out 6-8 MPH.

  • TOR @ ATL - Wind blwing from left to right 10 MPH.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • Justin Dunn’s xFIP and SIERA are extremely high relative to his ERA, he’s had a few starts so far where he should have gotten lit up so far but has not.

  • Detroit’s K% and ISO against LHPs, DET did just get Nomar Marza back in the lineup so should be a little more respectable moving forward.

  • Jose Urquidy has some ugly underlying numbers LAA could be a nice low owned stack.

  • Happ/Gant/Lester all have simular situations to Dunn and have very high SIERAs and FIPs relative to their ERAs.

  • Max Fried started off the year horribly and played while injured, his #’s might keep some ownership off of him and he is dirt cheap just in a tough matchup against Toronto who is hitting lefties to the tune of a .166 ISO. Might have some carryover ownership from people trying to get both Gerrit Cole and good bats in their lineup.
