MLB DFS Daily Fantasy Rundown – May 30th, 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: We’re keeping an eye on Texas and Chicago. 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.
Additional catcher notes: The top plays at the catcher position on this slate are Stephen Vogt (OAK) and Yan Gomes (CLE). Gomes ranks much better in our model (22nd) but I believe our model isn’t accounting for the changes that Vogt has made offensively (0.96 EYE, .324/.419/.606 triple slash line and a 1.024 OPS this season). He draws a favorable matchup against Nathan Eovaldi, who has historically had problems with LHBs (.346 wOBA, 24 percent LD rate and has only struck out 15 percent of LHBs since 2012). I’m upgrading Vogt to the top catcher option on this slate. Gomes has crushed LHP (.364 wOBA and .203 ISO against southpaws since 2012), which is why he ranks so well in our model. Despite Vogt being the top play, he ranks very closely to Gomes so I’m letting price dictate my decision here. Buster Posey (SF) has a good matchup against Williams Perez (doesn’t miss many bats) but the hitting environment is very poor (AT&T Park). Since Posey is priced fully around the industry, his value is better for tournaments.
