05/24/2021 Draftkings MLB News and Notes

05/24

Slate Overview:

  • 6 Games

  • Weather Concerns:

  • Rain:

  • CLE @ DET

  • BAL @ MIN

  • Wind:

  • COL @ NYM - Wind blowing 10+ MPH out to left field.

  • BAL @ MIN - Wind blowing 10+ MPH out to left field.

  • SEA @ OAK - Wind blowing 8-10 MPH out to right field.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • Uhhhh can you say lack of pitching options outside of Woodruff/Lynn/Snell it gets pretty dicey.

  • Shoemaker and Hentges bost have some pretty awful underlying numbers.

  • With Franmil Reyes recently hitting the IL the Indians' LU lost a lot of its pop.

  • Might be a night to find some cheap hitters to fit in 2 of the high-priced pitchers.

  • Last two-week team hitting data here.

Bets

  • Det F5 -0.5 (-115)

DFS

Home Run Call(S):

  • Eric Haase

  • One of Yermin Mercedes/ Jose Abreau, and even though he's not a HR hitter Nick Madrigal has a really nice matchup and could poke one out.

Stacks:

Chalk/Cash:

  • CWS

  • BAL

GPP:

  • DET

  • MIN

Pitching:

Chalk/Cash:

  • Frankie Montas

  • Blake Snell

  • Lance Lynn

  • Brandon Woodruff

GPP:

  • Spencer Turnbull - Never a great feeling rostering Turnbull but Cleveland will roll out a lineup with 5 hitters striking out 23% of the time or more to RHPs and that paired with Turnbull's affordable price tag its a decent pivot off of Montas.

  • Austin Gomber - More puke....well he is practically free on DraftKings and has some solid performances in Coors so hopefully going up against the Motley Crew that is currently the Mets and not having to pitch in Coors he can find a decent outing. If you look at data from 2019-2021 only 2 hitters have an ISO over .200 against LHPs and 5 strikeout 25% of the time to LHPs.
