MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Rundown June 6th, 2015
Welcome to Saturday’s edition of the Daily Fantasy Rundown with “leonem”, “dinkpiece” and “thenumbersguy”. Each day throughout the MLB season our daily MLB scouting reports will highlight the best top, value and cheap plays of the day based on the Daily Fantasy Industry’s pricing for salary cap games. The goal of our analysis is to help you improve consistency and become a better player long-term.
Weather: Only major concern today is in Denver. Because of the nature of thunderstorms (they are not everywhere in the region and they move and thus it is not a steady rain) I think they get this one in but there is a good shot at delay(s). Only worry is the threat for severe weather (ie. lots of hail, tornado, winds that cause damage) that could cancel the game. Please see Meteorologist Mark Paquette’s game by game weather forecasts below the Analysis.
If any weather situations shift drastically, we will keep you updated with lineup alerts so make sure to check your email inbox up until roster lock.
Content Note: Please note today’s content covers the afternoon slate. We’ll have an evening guide delivered via our lineup alerts that specifically addresses the evening slate with strategy and recommendations.
Buster Posey (SFG) – Posey and the Giants offense is playing away from AT&T Park and any time they play in favorable hitting environments, the difference is pretty stark. While AT&T Park deflates RH power by approximately 12 percent below the league average, Citizens Bank Park inflates RH power by approximately six percent above the league average. Posey is a better hitter against LHP but he still hits pretty well against RHP (.357 wOBA and .154 ISO against RHP since 2012). Opposing pitcher Severino Gonzalez doesn’t miss many bats and has a ZiPS projected 5.03 ERA for the rest of this season. This is a great matchup and hitting environment for Posey. If you’re paying up at the catcher position today, Posey is the option you’re looking for (Top 25 hitter in our model).
Russell Martin (TOR) – If Martin is able to secure a good lineup spot in the Blue Jays lineup, he’s a great cash game option. Martin is a good hitter against LHP (.346 wOBA, .170 ISO and 0.83 EYE against southpaws since 2012) and his matchup against Brett Oberholtzer (only a .315 wOBA allowed to RHBs but he’s yielding a 45 percent FB rate and isn’t missing many bats) is a matchup we’re attacking in our content today. Rogers Centre is an elite hitting environment (inflates RH power by approximately 10 percent above the league average) and getting exposure to an offense with an implied run total approaching five runs at a scarce position is ideal for cash games.
Michael McKenry (COL) – I’m not sure which catcher will play today for the Rockies but I’m assuming McKenry will handle the catching duties (Rockies played last night and Hundley was behind the plate). McKenry has been a solid hitter against RHP but his best tool has been power (.185 ISO against RHP in the last couple of seasons). Coors Field is the best hitting environment in all of baseball so I’m willing to invest in McKenry even if he hits seventh. Russell Martin is a better hitter (especially since he’s facing a LHP) but if he doesn’t acquire a good lineup spot, I would rather roster McKenry who is the cheaper option around the industry.
Jonathan Lucroy (MIL) – Lucroy doesn’t have the benefit of a good hitting environment but his price point is discounted around the industry (came back from an injury a few games ago). He has demonstrated a solid skill set against RHP (.346 wOBA and .159 ISO against RHP since 2012) and his matchup against J.R. Graham (4.94 ZiPS projected ERA for the rest of this season) is favorable. Lucroy also gets a bump in value due to a good lineup spot (usually a top five hitter). We’re not attacking this matchup a ton in cash games due to the hitting environment but it makes sense to do so at a scarce position.
Additional catcher notes: Derek Norris (SD) is another value I’m willing to roster in all formats. We don’t have to worry about lineup position with him (usually hits second) and that’s a bump in value (higher expected plate appearances). Norris is a much better hitter against LHP but he’s improved his power against RHP this season (.181 ISO). Projection systems don’t exactly love Michael Lorenzen (5.09 ZiPS projected ERA for the rest of the season) and the Padres offense is facing a huge positive park shift (from Petco Park to Great American Ball Park, an elite hitter’s park). Stephen Vogt (OAK) has made huge improvements at the plate this season but his price point and hitting environment aren’t great. Vogt is a better option for tournaments. If you need salary relief at the catcher position, Brayan Pena (CIN) is a decent option in cash games. He’s not as skilled as the written values above but he does hit fifth against RHP and opposing pitcher Odrisamer Despaigne doesn’t miss many bats.
Edwin Encarnacion (TOR) – Encarnacion’s upside today is astonishing. He has elite skills against LHP (.393 wOBA, .265 ISO and 1.08 EYE against LHP since 2012) and his matchup can improve some of the struggles he’s had this season. Encarnacion is hitting for more ground balls and is striking out more, which aren’t good for his value but opposing pitcher Brett Oberholtzer could ease these early season concerns. Oberholtzer is headed towards regression (.315 wOBA and 0.70 HR/9 allowed to RHBs but he has yielded a 45 percent FB rate and he has only struck out 15 percent of RHBs) and the hitting environment won’t help him (Rogers Centre inflates RH power by approximately 10 percent above the league average). If you’re paying for a first baseman today, Encarnacion tops my list.
Joey Votto (CIN) – Votto has been a monster against RHP (.412 wOBA, .194 ISO against RHP since 2012) and his matchup today is awesome. Odrisamer Despaigne doesn’t miss any bats (12 percent K rate this season) and that’s likely not a great way to obtain good results at Great American Ball Park (inflates LH power by approximately 12 percent above the league average). Votto is affordable around the industry and even though I prefer Encarnacion in cash games (more power potential), I’m likely diversifying between these two options, Brandon Belt and David Ortiz in all formats.
Next in line:
Brandon Belt (SFG) – Belt doesn’t have the same skill set as Encarnacion or Votto but he’s been a good hitter against RHP (.366 wOBA and .190 ISO). The Giants offense is experiencing a favorable park shift today (Citizens Bank Park) and Belt is a middle of the lineup bat (fifth). Opposing pitcher Severino Gonzalez has a projected 5.03 ZiPS ERA for the remainder of the season so it makes sense to have some sort of exposure to the Giants offense today. I’m willing to play Belt in cash games on sites where he’s cheaper than Encarnacion and Votto (DraftKings).
David Ortiz (BOS) – Ortiz is a bargain value on FanDuel, where he’s priced close to the bare minimum ($2,500). He doesn’t have a great matchup (Jesse Chavez is a good pitcher and his run prevention has been great this season) but his hitting skills against RHP are elite (.407 wOBA, 159 wRC+ and .276 ISO against RHP since 2012). We will likely have to evaluate Ortiz’s baseline against LHP moving forward since he’s been a below average player against southpaws this season (albeit in a small sample, which could be the issue) but he continues to hit RHP well (.372 wOBA and .218 ISO). Brandon Belt has been the better performer as of late so I would rather roster him on sites where they’re priced similarly (DraftKings) but Ortiz is clearly the superior value on FanDuel.
Additional first base notes: Chris Davis (BAL) is a boom or bust DFS option due to his ability to hit for power or strikeout multiple times in a given game. This matchup offers the same risk/reward as Davis’ skill set. Danny Salazar is a strikeout machine but he also has his fair share of problems with homeruns (1.32 HR/9 this season, 1.16 HR/9 in his career). Davis is a good contrarian option in tournaments today but I’m not touching him in cash games. Yonder Alonso (SD) doesn’t have the skill set of any of the written values above but he’s an above average hitter against RHP and he has a good lineup spot (fifth). He has a great matchup against Michael Lorenzen (ZiPS projected ERA above five) and benefits from a huge park shift (from Petco Park to the Great American Ball Park). Alonso is a fine target in tournaments. Other options that I’m considering for tournaments include (in order of preference): Ben Paulsen (COL), Adam Lind (MIL), Evan Gattis (HOU), Prince Fielder (TEX), and Carlos Santana (CLE).
Jeff Baker (MIA) – Baker is the one value that I will have industry wide today. He’s very cheap on all the sites I’ve checked and gives you exposure to an offense with a team total of 5.5 implied runs. Baker is an elite hitter against LHP (.367 wOBA and ,216 ISO against southpaws in the last few seasons) and the contextual factors couldn’t be better. Opposing pitcher Chris Rusin is an awful pitcher (projected ZiPS ERA of 5.47 this season and he doesn’t miss any bats) and Coors Field inflates RH power by approximately 15 percent above the league average (best in all of MLB). Baker’s price point doesn’t accurately reflect any of this. Baker cracks our top 20 hitters today and he’s priced outside the top 50.
Additional second base notes: Dee Gordon (MIA) is fully priced on most sites and he has a L/L matchup but he’s the leadoff hitter for an offense with an implied total of 5.5 runs and he has 60 SB upside over a full season. Michael McKenry is one of the worst catchers at controlling the running game in all of baseball (career -11 rSB over his career, has never accumulated a rSB total over 0), which meshes well with Gordon’s best tool. Gordon is one of my favorite tournament plays around the industry and I’m expecting low ownership due to a L/L matchup. Jason Kipnis (CLE) doesn’t have a great matchup (Ubaldo Jimenez is a solid pitcher and he’s made some improvements this season) but he’s been one of the best hitters in all of baseball this season (.330/.402/.509 triple slash line). He’s a good target for tournaments. On sites where Joe Panik (SFG) is priced as an average hitter, I view him as a fine value alternative to Jeff Baker in cash games. Panik isn’t a great hitter but he does make a ton of contact (12 percent K rate). To his credit, he has been a better hitter this season (.362 wOBA). He gets a good lineup spot for an offense we like today (Giants have an implied run total approaching 4.5 runs) and he carries the platoon edge against Severino Gonzalez (doesn’t miss many bats and has a ZiPS projected ERA above five for the rest of the season). Martin Prado (MIA) has second base eligibility on DraftKings and he’s the next in line option to Jeff Baker (awesome hitter against LHP and has a good lineup spot but he’s more expensive than Baker). Other tournament targets include (in order of preference): Brian Dozier (MIN) (opposing pitcher Matt Garza has been awful this season and Dozier has improved against RHP), Jose Altuve (HOU), Ben Zobrist (OAK) and Brandon Phillips (CIN) (has been performing well as of late and his high contact rate is good for his DFS value).
Troy Tulowitzki (COL) – As co-writer Drew Dinkmeyer wrote yesterday, the Rockies broadcast mentioned a few days ago that Tulowitzki made an adjustment to his stance and it has helped him. They’re probably right when you consider that Tulowitzki has accumulated 10 hits in his last five games and four of those hits were homeruns. Tulowitzki has been an incredible hitter against RHP (.388 wOBA and .215 ISO against RHP since 2012) and he’s always the top option at the shortstop position since he’s the best offensive shortstop in all of baseball. Opposing pitcher David Phelps is a solid pitcher but his lack of Ks represents a big problem in this environment (Coors Field). It’s going to be difficult to spend up at the shortstop position today (I see more value in spending at third base and outfield) but if you chose to pay up for a shortstop, Tulowitzki is by far the best option (top 10 hitter in our model).
Jose Reyes (TOR) – Reyes has discounted price tag on most sites (especially on FanDuel) and I’m taking advantage of this situation today. Reyes isn’t Troy Tulowitzki but he’s a switch hitter, has 30 SB upside over a full season and he’s the leadoff hitter for an offense with an implied total approaching five runs. Those factors keep Reyes locked in as the 25th ranked hitter in our model.
Additional shortstop notes: Alcides Escobar (KC) is a FanDuel specific value play ($2,500 on that site). He will have the platoon edge against Wandy Rodriguez and despite the bad hitting environment (Kauffman Stadium), the Royals have a healthy team total of 4.5 runs. Escobar and Brandon Crawford are the only other shortstop options I’d consider for cash games on FanDuel. Brandon Crawford (SFG) has a solid lineup spot (sixth) and benefits from juicy contextual factors (platoon edge at Citizens Bank Park). Crawford is an improving hitter (144 wRC+ and .212 ISO despite playing the majority of the games in an awful hitting environment) and even though his price is a bit too high on DraftKings (better for tournaments), he’s priced as an average hitter on FanDuel.
Josh Donaldson (TOR) – So we have Giancarlo Stanton facing a LHP at Coors Field and Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion facing a LHP at Rogers Centre. What a glorious day. Donaldson has put up video game numbers against southpaws (.423 wOBA and .305 ISO against LHP in his last 516 PAs against LHP) and Brett Oberholtzer has yielded a 45 percent FB rate against RHBs. That’s likely okay for Oberholtzer in neutral environments but not at Rogers Centre (inflates RH power by approximately 10 percent above the league average). Like Giancarlo Stanton, I don’t see how I fade Josh Donaldson against a below average LHP in cash games.
Martin Prado (MIA) – If you fade Josh Donaldson in cash games, Prado is a fine pivot. Prado is a better hitter against LHP (.381 wOBA and .173 ISO against LHP since 2012) and opposing pitcher Chris Rusin is not a good pitcher (doesn’t miss bats and has a ZiPS projected ERA above five this season). The platoon edge at Coors Field against a below average pitcher with a good lineup spot makes Prado a target in all formats.
Additional third base notes: Nolan Arenado (COL) and Todd Frazier (CIN) are good targets for tournaments. They’re fully priced around the industry but they both have solid matchups in favorable hitting environments. Both Arenado and Frazier rank among our top 40 hitters this afternoon. If you need salary relief, Danny Valencia (TOR) is an emergency punt play. He hits LHP well but he likely won’t have a favorable lineup spot.
Giancarlo Stanton (MIA) – Things that I will not do today: I will not fade Giancarlo Stanton in cash games. I’ve often wondered what it would be like if Stanton played at least half of a season at Coors Field. Stanton has accumulated a .440 wOBA and .342 ISO against LHP in his last 430 PAs. The scary part is that he has posted those numbers playing the majority of his games at Marlins Park (deflated RH power by approximately 10 percent below the league average). He’s playing at Coors Field today, a hitting environment that inflates RH power by approximately 15 percent above the league average. Additionally, he’s facing a below average southpaw that doesn’t miss any bats. If this wasn’t clear yet, I won’t be fading Stanton in cash games. Will you?
Jose Bautista (TOR) – I’m trying to squeeze in Stanton and Bautista in cash games but it’s a difficult task to do so on FanDuel. Bautista has a great matchup against a fly ball pitcher (Brett Oberholtzer) at Rogers Centre (elite hitting environment) and he has dominated southpaws (.398 wOBA, .272 ISO and 1.19 EYE against LHP since 2012). This season, Bautista is hitting more fly balls (50 percent FB rate), which is awesome for his power potential. Bautista is a good alternative to Stanton in all formats but keep in mind that Stanton is my number one priority in cash games today.
Marcell Ozuna (MIA) – Ozuna is a good hitter against LHP (.351 wOBA and .184 ISO against LHP in the last couple of seasons) and the contextual factors I’ve mentioned throughout today’s content (Coors Field against a below average southpaw) increases his DFS value. Ozuna will hit behind Giancarlo Stanton and Jeff Baker, which bodes well for his run producing opportunities. Ozuna’s price point around the industry hasn’t captured all of these positive contextual factors, which makes him an awesome value play (ranked among our top 20 hitters in our model).
Charlie Blackmon/Carlos Gonzalez (COL) – The Rockies have a matchup against a solid pitcher (David Phelps) but his inability to induce a league average K rate should hurt him in the best hitting environment in all of baseball. Blackmon and Gonzalez will hit first and fourth respectively for the Rockies today and I view them as next in line options to Marcell Ozuna and the written options above. Gonzalez continues to hit far too many ground balls and he hasn’t been the same hitter we’re accustomed to seeing. He’s priced favorably around the industry and he has a great lineup spot for DFS production but I would rather roster Blackmon in cash games since he’s been the better performer this season.
Chris Colabello (TOR) – If you need salary relief at the outfield position, Colabello is your best bet for cheap production. I’m not particularly fond of his skill set (41 percent GB rate) but he has been hitting a ton of line drives (32 percent LD rate this season) and he benefits from a good lineup spot (fifth) behind Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. Colabello gives you cheap exposure to an offense with an implied total approaching five runs.
Additional outfield notes: Other outfield options I like for cash games include (in order of preference): Carlos Gomez (MIL) (too affordable on FanDuel and despite a negative park shift, his matchup is favorable and he’s a high event player) Jay Bruce (CIN) (will have the platoon edge against a pitcher that allows too much contact), Matt Kemp (SD) (minimum priced on FanDuel and has a great matchup against a pitcher with a ZiPS projected ERA over five) and Will Venable (SD) (leadoff hitter for an offense that’s facing a huge park shift). The Royals RHBs in the outfield (Lorenzo Cain and Alex Rios) are good targets for tournaments. They won’t have the benefit of a good hitting environment but they will have the platoon edge against Wandy Rodriguez (soft tossing RHP). Justin Upton (SD) isn’t in consideration for cash games (price point is a bit too close to Stanton/Bautista) but he’s another option that I’ll consider for tournaments. Projection systems detest Michael Lorenzen and the Padres offense will benefit from a big park shift. Upton is always a power threat (career .203 ISO, .225 ISO this season despite playing the majority of his games at Petco Park) and playing in a ballpark that amplifies RH power is great for his value. Adam Jones (BAL) and George Springer (HOU) have matchups against strikeout pitchers that struggle with home runs. Their discounted price points can be exploited in tournament formats.
Rankings (price not considered):
1) Madison Bumgarner (SFG)
2) Danny Salazar (CLE)
3) Drew Hutchison (TOR)
4) Yordano Ventura (KC)
5) Jesse Chavez (OAK)
6) Ubaldo Jimenez (BAL)
Madison Bumgarner (SFG) – Bumgarner is priced fairly around the industry and he’s the option I want the most in cash games. He has an above average K rate and BB rate but his K rate has taken a dip this season. I see that as more of a random occurrence though, since his underlying peripherals are healthy (32 percent chase rate, 69 percent F-Strike rate and 11 percent SwStr rate, which are all in line with his career peripherals). His matchup against the Phillies (ranked 19th in wRC+ against LHP this season) is favorable and despite being on the road, Vegas has listed him as the biggest favorite on this slate (-190). It’s fairly easy to fit in Bumgarner while getting exposure to the top offensive environments (Coors Field, Rogers Centre), which is my preferred route for cash games this afternoon.
Danny Salazar (CLE) – Salazar probably has the most upside at the starting pitcher position today. His incredible strikeout skills (31 percent K rate) is fueled by elite underlying peripherals (37 percent chase rate, 14 percent SwStr rate). He’s still not getting ahead of batters at a league average rate (57 percent F-Strike rate, league average is 61 percent) but he’s not having any issues with walks (seven perent BB rate, league average is eight percent). The Orioles have been close to a league average offense against RHP (ranked 13th in wRC+) but they offer great strikeout upside (23 percent K rate, fourth worst mark in MLB). This game will take place at Progressive Field (neutral environment), which is good for Salazar (has issues with home runs and the Orioles home park, Camden Yards, is an elite hitting environment). Strikeouts are kings in DFS and Salazar has an elite strikeout arsenal. He’s a great complement to Bumgarner on multiple starting pitcher sites.
Drew Hutchison (TOR) – Like Salazar, Hutchison has immense strikeout upside this afternoon. Hutchison has a league average K rate (20 percent) and his peripherals support this (league average chase rate, F-Strike rate and SwStr rate). Perhaps the best thing going for Hutchison today is his matchup against the strikeout prone Astros. The Astros are ranked 10th in wRC+ against RHP but are striking out at an alarming rate (26 percent k rate). Hutchison is probably a riskier option than Salazar in cash games simply because his run prevention isn’t as good (Hutchison has a 5.26 ERA/3.79 FIP/3.70 xFIP and Salazar has posted a 3.79 ERA/3.52 FIP/2.79 xFIP). I view Hutchison as a high risk, high reward option in all formats and I don’t mind pairing him with either Bumgarner or Salazar in cash games on multiple starting pitcher sites.
Additional starting pitcher notes: Yordano Ventura (KC) is the other option I’d consider for cash games today. The Rangers are a neutral matchup (ranked 14th in wRC+ and are striking out 20 percent of the time against RHP) but they’re facing a pretty huge negative park shift (from Globe Life Park in Arlington, a great hitter’s park, to Kauffman Stadium, which is considered an elite pitching environment). Ventura has a league average K rate and BB rate but once he figures out how to get ahead of batters, his K rate will experience some growth (his “stuff” is elite). He’s a viable complement to the above values on multiple starting pitcher sites. Jesse Chavez (OAK) is a good tournament option on DraftKings. He’s very cheap ($6,600), has pitched well this season (above average K rate, BB rate while posting a 2.11 ERA/2.64 FIP) and despite the early season hype behind this Red Sox offense, they haven’t been very good (ranked 20th in wRC+ against RHP). A fun tournament route that I’m experimenting with today is pairing Chavez with Salazar or Hutchison (cheap pairings) and loading up with Blue Jays and Marlins.
Macro Thinking, Stacks, and Tournament Notes:
This is a new section we’ve created to try and offer more dedicated macro thinking to our analysis and hopefully add more value to those playing tournaments. The format is a bit of a work in progress and we welcome feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have suggestions.
Top Tournament Stacks/Cash Game Mini Stacks:
1) Miami Marlins
2) Colorado Rockies
3) Toronto Blue Jays
The Marlins, Rockies and Blue Jays were the focus of our content today. They have implied run totals above five runs and they’re facing below average pitchers in great hitting environments. The starting pitching options aren’t restrictive from a salary perspective today so I’m loading up with these offenses in all formats.
1) San Francisco Giants
2) San Diego Padres
3) Cincinnati Reds
4) Kansas City Royals
The Giants offense is facing a significant park shift (from AT&T Park to Citizens Bank Park) and they hit RHP well (ranked third in wRC+). Most DFSers will be on the Marlins, Rockies and Blue Jays in all formats so I’m expecting low ownership for the Giants in tournaments. They’re my number one contrarian stack of the day.
The Padres and Reds are listed as contrarian stacks for similar reasons. They have favorable matchups against pitchers who don’t miss many bats in a favorable hitting environment. Like the Giants, I’m expecting low ownership for these offenses in tournaments.
The Royals won’t benefit from a good offensive environment but the matchup could make up for it. Wandy Rodriguez is a soft tossing RHP and the Royals make a ton of contact against RHP. The Royals offense is ranked seventh in wRC+ this season and I view them as great contrarian options, particularly Lorenzo Cain, Salvador Perez and Alex Rios (their best hitters against LHP).
