MLB Plays of the Day – 7/15/17

Onto our 2nd day back from the ASB. Hopefully everybody is enjoying their Saturday afternoon. Hopefully everybody also took advantage of some of the plays yesterday because they did some damage.

Let’s jump into this huge 13 game slate tonight!

Once again starting off with the pitching options tonight and let me be the first to say that tonight will definitely be a difficult one since in my opinion there is 4 cash game pitchers you could use tonight! In no order I would say your cash pitchers should be either Scherzer,Wood,Nelson or Kluber.

Below are my preferred plays at each position for tonight’s 13-game MLB DFS main slate:

(FanDuel Pricing)

Pitcher

Alex Wood ($9,900)

As I mentioned above there is a lot of options tonight to choose from at the Pitcher position but if I had to choose one my guy would be Alex Wood. Wood in my opinion is extremely underpriced at 9.9K which will allow you to get some bats over the likes of Scherzer or Kluber. Wood has the 5th highest K-BB % of 23.9 and a outstanding 63.5 GB%. Also his K/9 is sitting at 10.82 thru this season. Another stat that jumps out for me is he has allowed 1 ER in his last 11/13 starts. I see that continuing tonight!

Catcher

Wilson Contreras ($3,200)

Contreras is my guy at Catcher tonight facing LHP gas can Wade Miley in a friendly hitter park of Camden Yards. I see the Cubs absolutely sticking it to Miley tonight. Contreras should be hitting atop of the cubs order which makes him an even better play. Miley has been absolutely atrocious this year and for the last 14 days holds a 33.3 HR/FB% also 13.6 BB% and lazy 16.7 K%. Contreras also owns a .354 wOBA.

First Base

Josh Bell ($3,200)

All you have to do is just check this mans gamelogs he’s been absolutely on fire. He gets to face off against RHP Lance Lynn who’s stats aren’t that bad but he doesn’t strikeout many hitters with only a 13.0 K/BB%. Bell also owns a .337 wOBA.

Second Base

Robinson Cano ($3,400)

Back to back nights I will recommend playing Robinson Cano. Again he will be the chalk at 2B after some still elected to fade him yesterday. He faces RHP Mike Pelfrey who is probably the worst pitcher in the Majors. Expect Pelfrey to get absolutely shelled tonight and Cano should be able to do damage. Cano owns a .343 wOBA a .234 ISO and only a 10.1 K% and he al know Pelfrey can’t strikeout anybody out. Plug Cano in and move on.

Third Base

Kris Bryant ($3,700)

Kris Bryant is my guy tonight at 3B and for good reason he absolutely crushed LHP and he gets to tee off against gas can Wade Miley in Camden Yards. Double dong alert!!! Bryant owns a .324 ISO and a .428 wOBA with a 24.4 BB% and a 46 FB% and we all know Miley gives some hard contact and a lot of fly balls!

Shortstop

Addison Russell ($2,600)

I like Addison Russell tonight at Shortstop against Wade Miley. I know he hasn’t been tearing it up this season, but I think Russell and the Cubs break out once again tonight just like last night!

Outfield

Matt Kemp ($2,700)

Matt Kemp is nearly a lock for me tonight against LHP Patrick Corbin who is prone to getting roughed up at times. Stats favor the Braves and Kemp in this matchup tonight is this season on the road Corbin is giving up an HC% of 34.7 and a HR/FB% of 20.4.
