Wilin Rosario (COL) – Rosario is too cheap on DraftKings ($3,400) relative to his skills and contextual factors at hand this afternoon. Rosario has demolished LHP in the last three seasons, accumulating a .430 wOBA and .291 ISO. Opposing pitcher Alex Wood is certainly not a bad pitcher (neutralizes RHBs well due to an above average K-BB% and he has only allowed a 0.76 HR/9 to RHBs since 2012) but Coors Field is the best hitting environment in all of baseball and Rosario gets a premier lineup spot against southpaws. The Rockies have a team total of five runs and no other catcher has these skills or contextual factors on this slate. It’s a full slate but Rosario can be considered a core cash game play on sites where he has catcher eligibility. Rosario is ranked inside our top 10 hitters today (next ranked catcher is Yasmani Grandal, and he’s our 60th ranked hitter).
