05/13/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes

05/13

Slate Overview:

  • 6 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • CIN @ COL – Wind blowing in 5-8 MPH.

  • OAK @ BOS – Wind blowing out to left 5MPH.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • Looks like it will be a hard day to get away from the Coors stacks, if you are going to play, I like to either do an one off or get my stack from the less popular team in the matchup for some ownership leverage (Castillio isn’t the same as last year as well).

  • Jameson Taillon has a nice SIERA compared to his ERA, has great soft contact numbers just struggles with fly balls and going from playing at Yankee stadium to the Tampa dome which is a great park for pitchers should help his case today (Very affordable on both sites).

  • The combination of Trevor Rogers walking batters at almost a 10% clip and Arizona having an 11% BB rate against LHPs is scary, not to mention the Diamondbacks have an absolutely ridiculous .245 ISO and are only striking out 19.6% of the time to LHPs.

  • Also, fun stat Andrew Young from the Diamondbacks is 4/10 in his Major League at bats with 4 Homeruns….what a beast.

  • Jarred Kelenic is expected to start in left field and bat 6th for the Mariners today. Kelenic, is min price on DraftKings and rated as the #4 prospect in all of baseball.

Bets

  • OAK o4 Runs -130 – uh I know small sample size but look at Richards at home vs away this year…..not great.
