Daily Matchups for 5/12/2017


Cash Pitchers

Ervin Santana-  Santana was never going to hold down that 0.66 ERA but even with him giving up 6 ERs last start against BOS (they won 17-6) he still has a 5-1 record with a 1.72 ERA. Santana has already faced this same Cleveland team in his 4th start of the season where he pitched 6 Innings, giving up only 4 hits including 1 ER and 6 Ks. I Would be looking for something similar to that performance out of him

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!
