DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Pitchers, Thursday 5/24

The following Spotlight Pitchers were selected by Awesemo.com writer Jake Hari. For more analysis on the slate, check out the MLB Strategy Video and Night Shift Podcast.

Blake Snell

Snell for $8K is an absolute bargain despite the perceived tough matchup against the Red Sox. Boston definitely has guys that will mash righties (Betts, Martinez, Bogaerts), but on the season, they have a bottom-3 wRC+, bottom-5 wOBA, and bottom-5 On-Base Percentage against lefties. Snell has been very solid against righties this year, posting a 25% K-rate, 1.21 WHIP, and 32.8% hard-contact while having a Swinging-Strike rate over 13%. On a short slate and at relatively low ownership, Snell makes for a fantastic play on DraftKings because he’s certainly got the swing-and-miss stuff that you need to mow down the Red Sox.

Charlie Morton

With Morton, you’re not getting a huge discount like you are with Snell, but he’s another guy that has a good enough arsenal to dominate the Indians, just as he did 6 days ago. He was at home in his last start, but Morton struck out 8 in 7 innings while allowing just 1 ER. His 43% K-rate against left-handed hitters is 2nd in the MLB, so we shouldn’t be worried that he’ll be facing 7-8 lefties tonight. Ramirez, Lindor, and Brantley will not be easy outs, but when you get near the end of the order, Morton should be able to feast on hitters like Allen, Kipnis, and Gomes.
