2013 Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: June 28

DraftKings Team of the Day

Today I’m doing something new – playing in a Triple Up contest. It’s only a dollar, but I’ve got a 30 percent chance of winning back $3. When you sign up at DraftKings be sure to claim your deposit bonus.

Player  Matchup Salary Note
SP – Gerrit Cole
 vs. Milwaukee $6,800 I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Cole, and even though MIL hits righties well it’s without Braun and doesn’t have *that* great a lineup
SP – Hisashi Iwakuma  vs. Chicago Cubs $9,700 Iwakuma at home: 1.46 ERA, 52 K, 3 BB. Cubs on road: .629 OPS
C – Yadier Molina
 Bartolo Colon $4,200  Second most PPG among catchers, but only 10th priciest
1B – Brandon Belt
 Jhoulys Chacin $4,500 Versus a righty at Coors is worth the risk
2B – Matt Carpenter
 Colon $4,400 Thirteenth ranked 2B by price, fifth by scoring
3B – Evan Longoria  Max Scherzer $4,000 Tough matchup, but only $4,000? Worth it
SS – Jean Segura
Cole $4,100 Costs less than Alexi Casilla, but he’s the third highest scoring shortstop
OF – Carlos Beltran
 Colon $4,500  Thirteen of 18 homers vs. righties; .924 OPS vs. righties
OF – Gerardo Parra
 Julio Teheran $3,600 Way too cheap; .906 OPS vs. righties
OF – Austin Jackson
 Alex Colome $4,000  1.077 OPS in June


Thursday Recap

Derek Holland shutout the Yankees in New York, allowing just two hits and two walks while striking out seven. Holland’s 3.14 season ERA is backed up by a 2.75 FIP and career-high strikeout and walk rates. I just traded Andrew McCutchen for Derek Holland and three other players in a 16-team league and feel like I got a good deal out of it. I’d be buying Holland in any league.

Matt Garza now has thrown 22 innings in his last three starts and only allowed two earned runs after Thursday’s 10-strikeout beating of the Brewers. He has a 23:5 K:BB in those three starts and has generally pitched better than what his ERA suggests. He’s owned in just 71 percent of ESPN leagues.
