Daily Matchups for 4/10/2017

Top Pitchers

Chris Sale- Just looking at the picture here and seeing the strain on his elbow makes my insides hurt. I have no clue how this 6’10” 150 lb guy hasn’t had to have elbow surgery yet. Besides that, he’s the most expensive player on the slate and had a pretty damn good start to his BoSox career last game by pitching 7 innings giving up only 3 hits, 1 walk, 7 Ks and a QSTART. The only problem is he didn’t get the W but he still managed 46 FP. He’s got a great match-up against the Tigers and we’ll show you the numbers below.

Career vs Current Tigers Roster

AVG: 0.280 [70 for 250], BABIP: 0.331, K%: 23.4, BB%: 8.9
FIP: 4.85 Strikeout: 66 Single:48 Flyout: 38 Groundout: 37Walk: 21 Pop Out: 14 Home Run: 12 Double: 10 Lineout: 9Grounded Into DP: 8Forceout: 7 Intent Walk: 4 Hit By Pitch: 4 Sac Fly: 2 Bunt Pop Out: 1 Sac Bunt: 1

Jon Lester- We absolutely love his match-up against the Dodgers which he has absolutely dominated in his career. Lester gets to come into Wrigley to start the home opener after winning the World
Series and coming off of a great performance last Sunday against the Cardinals where he pitching only 5 innings, allowing 7 hits while only walking 2 with 7 Ks, an ER and 33 FP. Had he gotten the win that would have been an additional 12 FPs which would have dominated. You can even get Lester for $1300 less than Sale which most people will be on but let’s take a look at his numbers!

Career vs Current Dodgers Roster

AVG: 0.186 [26 for 140], BABIP: 0.242, K%: 26.5, BB%: 6.6
FIP: 2.57 Strikeout: 40Groundout: 34 Single: 20Flyout: 13 Lineout: 12 Walk:10 Pop Out: 7 Double: 3 Bunt Groundout: 3 Grounded Into DP: 2 Forceout: 2 Home Run:2 Sac Bunt: 1 Triple: 1 Double Play: 1

Jacob deGrom- He gets his second juicy match-up in as many times this season in the form of the Philadelphia Phillies tonight. He’s coming off a terrific performance against the Atlanta Braves where he pitched 6 innings of 2 hit ball, 6 Ks, a QSTART and 40 FP over at Fanduel. I wouldn’t be surprised if he does even better against the Phillies who he has had more success against.

Career vs Current Phillies Roster

AVG: 0.192 [14 for 73], BABIP: 0.232, K%: 21.1, BB%: 3.9
FIP: 2.68 Groundout: 17Strikeout: 16 Single: 12Flyout: 10 Lineout: 7 Walk: 3Grounded Into DP: 2Forceout: 2 Field Error: 2 Pop Out: 1 Home Run: 1 Double: 1Bunt Pop Out: 1 Bunt Groundout: 1


Value/Sleeper Pitchers:

Charlie Morton- This name isn’t a sexy name when you think of MLB Pitchers that you want to bet your hard earned money on but he has a terrific match-up against a Mariner’s team that has been very lackluster to start the season. Morton actually faced this exact team 5 days ago where he pitched 6 innings giving up only 5 hits, 2 walks, 4 KS, 2 ERs and QSTART and 29 FD FP. We love him again tonight as a sneaky GPP option.

Career vs Current Mariners Roster

AVG: 0.195 [8 for 41], BABIP: 0.200, K%: 11.1, BB%: 4.4
FIP: 4.02 Groundout: 19Single: 7 Strikeout: 5 Flyout: 3Forceout: 2 Hit By Pitch: 2Pop Out: 2 Walk: 2 Grounded Into DP: 1 Home Run: 1Lineout: 1

Tyler Glasnow- If you’re just a casual MLB follower or even a first time MLB DFS player, you’ve probably never heard of this kid unless you’re a fan of the Pirates. He’s making his first start of the season and makes a perfect tournament play or even a SP2 over at DraftKings. He gets to come into this season with a great matchup against a Reds team that he has held to a .231 BA. I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes for 6+ innings, and 24+ FP if he’s not on a pitch count.

Career vs Current Reds Roster

AVG: 0.231 [3 for 13], BABIP: 0.333, K%: 26.7, BB%: 13.3
FIP: 2.55 Strikeout: 4 Single: 3Lineout: 3 Groundout: 2 Walk:2 Pop Out: 1

Michael Pineda- You really never know which Pineda you are going to get on any given night and that’s why he is strictly a GPP option whenever he takes the bump. Pineda just faced this same TB team 5 days ago and only lasted 3.2 innings while giving up 8 hits, striking out 6 and allowing 4 ERs and only getting 17 FP. The only reason you might consider this guy is if you’re going contrarian and trying to differentiate yourself from the pack. His numbers against TB are absolutely terrible but if you can catch him on a good day you could potentially get a 10+ strike out day.

Career vs Current Rays Roster

AVG: 0.323 [40 for 124], BABIP: 0.395, K%: 26.9, BB%: 6.7
FIP: 5.31 Strikeout: 36Groundout: 26 Single: 16Double: 13 Flyout: 10 Walk: 9Home Run: 8 Forceout: 4Lineout: 4 Triple: 3 Pop Out:Sac Fly: 1 Field Error:Double Play: 1

 Ryan Zimmerman

Jose Iglesias

Jacoby Ellsbury

Rajai Davis

Mitch Moreland

Freddy Galvis

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.

As discussed in previous Youtube videos, after 7 years, we've decided to take some time off. My plan is to take a couple of months off and transition to making FantasyTeamAdvisors a Season-Long and DFS Fantasy Football website. Hopefully, you understand and we'll be back better than ever!
