FanDuel MLB DFS Picks – August 28th

It had been another collection of FanDuel MLB DFS Picks last night, and shockingly so.
Our pitcher, Patrick Corbin, did a solid job in hurling seven innings of all both two-run ball to go along with nine strikeouts from the Orioles had he made the win.
That was not true as Aaron Brooks and the Orioles bullpen combined to allow just four hits, yes four strikes, at a 2-0 triumph over the Nationals. While Anthony Rendon walked twice in this lineup for our sole production trea Turner singled and tripled. It’s safe to say last night this effect blew up cash lineups.
The heap of our A did not fare any better. Tuesday, the A’s managed just a pair of runs after scoring 19 runs on Monday. Khris Davis singled and walked, Chad Pinder walked with the bases Jurickson Profar walked twice and Mark Canha walked in what was a disappointing results from using this group.
The icing on the cake turned into a goose egg by a Travis Demeritte.
That marks nights to overlook with our FanDuel MLB DFS Picks, and we are needing a night here on tonightmajor slate!
P — Mike Foltynewicz (ATL) — $7,700 vs. TOR
At a movement, I’ll be using Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz has that he chooses a twist tonight against the Blue Jays. It was a tough beginning to the year for last year’s Braves ace and the numbers continue being nasty with a 5.68 ERA, 5.65 FIP and a 5.00 xFIP to go along with a 2.19 HR/9 against. That said, tonight would mark the start of the second half to Foltynewicz as he was demoted to the minors and brought in the beginning of August, and he hurled a jewel his last time out. Foltynewicz tossed seven innings of one-run ball to go along with seven punchouts in a tough-luck no choice against the Mets. He pitched just 4.2 innings against the Dodgers in his previous start, but allowed only two runs and struck out five to boot. The Blue Jays bats have increased in the second half of this year to be certain, but their 24 percent K-rate at the time still ranks in the base 10 of this league and Foltynewicz owns a 10.17 K/9 clip in his four starts since returning into the big leagues. I like the value upside, especially with the Braves listed as approximately -145 favorites to win this one about the moneyline tonight, although There’s risk to be certain.
C/1B — C.J. Cron (MIN) — $3,200 vs. CWS
The Twins have the second-highest run projection at the night behind the Washington Nationals in 6.1 runs as they take on left-hander Ross Detwiler along with the Chicago White Sox. In seven starts and 12 appearances in the big leagues this year, Detwiler possesses a 5.51 ERA, 6.74 FIP and a large 2.85 HR/9 allowed, so we surely have a targetable pitcher in our palms with the most effective group in baseball this season. As a result, I’ll be rostering a quarter of lefty-mashers against him. Entering this one tonight, Cron owns a .321 moderate to go alongside a big-time .321 ISO, 1.023 OPS, .410 wOBA and also a 157 wRC+ vs left wing pitching. The numbers tendency on the street versus lefties where Cron has assembled a .356 ISO, 1.051 OPS, .418 wOBA and 163 wRC+. Not merely contains Cron mashed lefties as a complete, he’s also enjoyed some critical success against Detwiler in their history versus another as he has gone 6 for 11 (.545) with a pair of doubles against the veteran southpaw, great to get a .182 ISO and 1.273 OPS against him. Add it all up and he is a excellent way to kick off a high-ceiling four-man stack this day.
2B — Jason Kipnis (CLE) — $3,400 vs. DET
I’ll be rostering a pair of stack within this lineup and both come from the AL Central as I’ll be using Jason Kipnis to begin an Indians pile against the Detroit Tigers and right-hander Jordan Zimmermann. Zimmermann has simply struggled after a real run with the Nationals that brought him a lucrative deal with the Tigers in his merry Tigers tenure to this stage. This year, the veteran right-hander possesses a 6.48 ERA, even though his 4.57 FIP and 5.00 xFIP do point towards a bad luck on his part. However, he’s had no chance against this Indians team in his profession as he owns an enormous 10.68 ERA against these around eight starts. Input Kipnis who brings some pop and discharged base upside into this one as he has swatted 14 extended balls over the time to go along with seven steals. He has been a solid bat against right-handers as he owns a .198 ISO, .778 OPS, .324 wOBA and a 97 wRC+ from them. He’s currently enjoying a major month of August to date using a .250 ISO and .809 OPS in the month to this point, including a homer and a pair of runs scored in the last night’s 10-1 win. Perhaps best of all is the fact that Kipnis has chased Zimmermann at his period by going 8 to 13 (.615) with three doubles and two triples from him. I believe I’ll take that nugget and run with Kipnis.
3B — Miguel Sano (MIN) — $3,900 vs. CWS
Next person up in our four-man Twins stack is Sano who is yet another member of this dreaded lineup that’s feasting on left-handed pitching this season, especially on the street. He’s endured issues that have prevented him from reaching his potential although the energy has always been there for Sano. But in 2019, he has put it together as he’ll enter this 1 tonight smashing lefties for a enormous .341 ISO, .966 OPS, .394 wOBA and also a 146 wRC+. On the street against lefties, Sano possesses an eye-popping .514 ISO, 1.280 OPS, .507 wOBA and also a 223 wRC+. The road sample size is simply 37 at-bats, however, the man has ever clubbed six home runs from these 37 street at-bats versus left-handed pitching. Sano has tallied five hits over the past four matches, three of which came in the kind of a home run with a dual combined in. As a result, the slugger owns a .322 ISO, .906 OPS, .373 wOBA and 132 wRC+ to the month of August to this point. Like Cron, Sano has enjoyed success against Detwiler previously, albeit at a tiny sample, since he’s gone 3 for 4 with a home run . I will search for that success to continue tonight.
SS — Willi Castro (DET) — $2,400 vs. CLE
I was planning to use Francisco Lindor inside this area tonight, however since Lindor has gone just two for 13 (.154) from Zimmermann in his career, I think we can fade the Indians’ leadoff man and that I really did just that and subsequently employed his high salary to mass up the remainder of my lineup. I was left with all the shortstop position open and $2,600 to fill it. Of that bunch, I’m going to roll with Tigers shortstop Willi Castro who must come at ownership in this one tonight. He’ll carry on Indians right-hander Aaron Civale whose has a good period in five starts with the big club, however that has to do with Castro. He brings a nice power and pace to the lineup as he hit 11 homers and discharged 17 bases in the minors this season, and also the switch-hitting center infielder fared better against righties in the minors (.857 OPS) than he’d lefties (.755). 10 of his 11 little league home runs came against a righty and 17 of his steals failed too. Tonight marks just the fourth big league game of the season for the prior Indians farmhand and he has gone 3 for 11 (.273) with a double and 2 runs scored so far. He’s got pop and he’s got pace, so let us see whether we can bring both to the table and provide this lineup a shot in the arm in low ownership tonight.
OF — Yasiel Puig (CLE) — $3,400 vs. DET
Speaking of pop and speed, Puig will be our bat as a portion of the Indians heap against Zimmermann tonight. The former Dodger and Red has hit both lefties and righties pretty well this year, but once against the righty-swinging Puig is wearing a few reverse splits and hitting righties better than he is lefties. Entering this 1 tonight, even Puig sports a .226 ISO, .798 OPS, .332 wOBA along with also a 102 wRC+ from right-handed casting on this season. He’s not hitting a ton of average or walking a whole great deal, that is pulling down his wOBA and wRC+, no matter how the power is legit together with 24 home runs on the year — 19 of which have come against a righty — although he is also swiped 16 foundations — 14 of which come against right-handed pitchers. I enjoy the fact that Puig registered his first multi-hit match as August 17th in last night’s blowout win once he went 2 for 5 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and an RBI. He was caught stealing. I am simply here for the home run and stolen base upside down with Puig since he takes on a pitching staff that enables loads of the former.
OF — Franmil Reyes (CLE) — $3,200 vs. DET
Completing our four-man Indians stack is Reyes who enjoys himself some right-handed pitching despite hitting against the perfect side himself. He is also white-hot at the plate entering this one tonight. Over the season, Reyes has hit lefties to get a .242 ISO, .812 OPS, .332 wOBA and 105 wRC+ — all of very strong numbers, particularly the energy. However, he’s also smacked right-handers to get a big-time .291 ISO, .828 OPS, .338 wOBA and 108 wRC+. Interestingly, Reyes only has 13 doubles on the year, however he has 33 home runs on boot up and 27 of those long balls have come against a pitcher that is right-handed. Fans with outfield seats at Comerica Park in Detroit tonight might want to wear a helmet if Reyes measures to the plate since he’s launched four home runs over his last 3 games with a double to boot. If you want to go back 1 game farther, all six of his hits over the previous four games have went for extra-bases. He’s also scored five runs over his past four games and also driven in 10 runs over his last three. The Tigers’ pitching staff possesses a 1.58 HR/9 rate — the seventh-highest markers in baseball — while their 5.20 bullpen FIP ranks 29th. There’s oodles of upside in this Indians tonight.
OF — Nelson Cruz (MIN) — $4,200 vs. CWS
It’s not a smart idea to beg that the Cruz-missile when rostering a Twins stack against a left-handed pitching, so I’m not going to go down this road tonight. Cruz is demonstrating that age is only a few as he continues to hit home runs’ despite missing time with injuries and appearing in 94 games. In actuality, Cruz’s .345 ISO here in 2019 is almost a full 100 points over his career .250 indicate and he’s been worth 3.3 WAR despite missing time and DHing this year. He been good. Fans in Guaranteed Speed Field at Chicago tonight may also wish to throw on a helmet if Cruz steps to the dish because he’s unleashed a unworldly .489 ISO, 1.157 OPS, .451 wOBA and 185 wRC+ on left-handed pitchers this season. On the road, all he’s done is post a .500 ISO, 1.172 OPS, .464 wOBA and 194 wRC+ against southpaw pitching. The man has been on another planet in the next half of this season also when he owns a .479 ISO, 1.230 OPS, .490 wOBA and 211 wRC+. Finally, Cruz has absolute throttled Detwiler inside their own history against each other as he’s gone for 7 (.714) with three home runs, a double and a triple . That’s good for a enormous 1.714 ISO along with also 3.143 OPS — ridiculous figures. He is the bat on the slate in my view.
UTIL — Mitch Garver (MIN) — $3,400 vs. CWS
It’s difficult to imagine Mitch Garver since the forgotten man on this deadly Twins crime the year given he has put out of seemingly nowhere. Garver played 103 games last year with the Twins and struck home runs and made a .146 ISO. This season, Garver has established 23 home runs in only 74 games great for the eye-popping .322 ISO. The creation has come against lefties and righties, however the figures against lefties are outstanding and exceptional. Garver has hit left-handers to the tune of a .379 ISO, 1.103 OPS, .444 wOBA and 180 wRC+ around this season. The figures are better at home, but I am not going to argue with his .278 ISO, 1.064 OPS, .442 wOBA along with 179 wRC+ from left-handers on the street, possibly. He has been struggling a bit in the month of August in an average and OPS standpoint, but he is still hitting power with a potent .232 ISO for its month while a few of his past three collapses have gone to get a double. Perhaps the finest of Garver is the fact that his ways have him projected to strike from the leadoff place that is ever-valuable tonight, so we are getting wonderful upside that is cross-category tonight.
