Daily Matchups for 4/13/2017

Top Pitchers


Yu Darvish- Absolutely love his match-up today against Ricky Nolasco and the Angels. Darvish is still looking for his first W of the season and why not tonight? His past two outings he’s combined for 12.1 innings, 8 hits, 5 ERs, 1 HR, 8 Walks, 9 Ks and an 0-1 record. He’s had mild sucess against the Angels in the past and could find himself in the W column after tonight’s game.

Career vs Current Angels Roster

AVG: 0.231 [28 for 121], BABIP: 0.247, K%: 26.2, BB%: 11.3
FIP: 6.14 Strikeout: 36 Single: 17 Groundout: 17Walk: 16 Flyout: 14 Pop Out: 11 Home Run: 9Lineout: 5 Grounded Into DP: 3 Forceout: 2 Hit By Pitch: 2 Field Error: 2 Triple: 1 Sac Fly: 1Double Play: 1 Fielders Choice: 1 Strikeout – DP: 1 Double: 1 Sac Bunt: 1

Madison Bumgarner- Like Darvish, MadBum is still looking for his first win of the season as he’s coming off of a 2-1 loss where he pitched 8 innings, gave up 6 hits, 2 ERs, 2 walks and 5 Ks. In that match-up against the Padres he induced 14 ground balls and 12 fly balls. The Giant’s offense just couldn’t get anything going for him so he looks to regroup and dominate a Rockies’ lineup that didn’t do much offensively in Coors over the past 6 days.

Career vs Current Rockies Roster

AVG: 0.249 [51 for 205], BABIP: 0.289, K%: 22.4, BB%: 9.5
FIP: 4.49 Strikeout: 52 Single: 33 Groundout: 33Flyout: 23 Walk: 21 Pop Out: 13 Lineout: 12Double: 9 Grounded Into DP: 8 Home Run: 8Forceout: 8 Field Error: 5 Sac Fly: 2 Sac Bunt: 2Hit By Pitch: 1 Triple: 1 Intent Walk: 1

Jordan Zimmermann- J-Zimm pitched masterfully against the Red Sox on April 8th with 6 IP, allowing only 4 hits and 1 ER, 1 walk and 3 Ks. He got the W and looks to continue that today against Phil Hughes and the Twins. The Twins can score on anyone this season so far (see Fulmer yesterday) but we like his odds if you’re playing the Early-Only slate.


Career vs Current Twins Roster

AVG: 0.231 [12 for 52], BABIP: 0.333, K%: 34.0, BB%: 1.9
FIP: 1.67 Strikeout: 18 Single: 10 Groundout: 10Flyout: 4 Forceout: 2 Pop Out: 2 Home Run: 1Grounded Into DP: 1 Bunt Groundout: 1 Walk: 1Field Error: 1 Lineout: 1 Double: 1

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!
