Baltimore Orioles at RHP Clay Buchholz – 4.6 implied runs
While I myself plan on rolling with a fair number of lineups anchored by RHP Clay Buchholz on DraftKings, I will also target against him. With regards to using him as my SP2, there are only 10 teams in action – so our options are limited on Monday. Please keep in mind, this is strictly a price play which is not needed on FanDuel and not particularly on Yahoo.
This season in ten starts, Buchholz has a 1-5 record with a 6.48 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, just 29 strikeouts and a 1.62 HR/9 rate. On the season, he has allowed a .367+ wOBA and a .235+ ISO to batters from both sides of the plate.
The Batters of Birdland actually have some competent options led by Anthony Santander, Renato Nunez and Jonathan Villar. Trey Mancini should return to the lineup after a day off (bruised leg from a hit by pitch) and Mark Trumbo is finally healthy with power upside. Additionally, Hanser Alberto is currently fifth in the AL batting race with a .310 average.
Washington Nationals vs. RHP Zach Eflin – 5.2 implied runs
This will be the fourth time that RHP Zach Eflin has faced the Nationals. Though he has shut them down over 18.0 innings with only three earned runs, one home run and 21 punchouts, I am looking for the lefties. Across his last 536 righty/lefty matchups Eflin has allowed a .353 wOBA, .222 ISO with a 9.3 BB%. Sadly we really only have Juan Soto and Adam Eaton from the left-side of the plate. However, Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner and Brian Dozier are also in play.
As always, reach out to me in Awesemo.com Premium Slack or on Twitter @EMacDFS.
