A full allotment of diamond action is once again set to go on Hump Day’s MLB slate with a handful of matinee match-ups including the Dodgers/Rockies series finale.
Value is the name of the daily fantasy sports game, and here’s a look at some players that either fit the bill or don’t for tonight’s slate.
“VALUE PICKS FOR WEDNESDAY MLB”
Though he’s 1-0 through two starts, Ivan Nova has simply been dreadful at home posting a 7.94 ERA, 2.12 WHIP and .365 BAA. The O’s have launched four home runs against him all-time, and one of those came off the bench of C Matt Wieters. The Orioles backstop checks in 5-for-11 with a double, walk, and three RBIs against him lifetime and comes at a reduced price even though he’s outperformed some higher priced daily fantasy MLB catchers.
Though he started off the regular season hobbled with a hamstring injury, Reds 2B Brandon Phillips looks to finally be rounding into form having gotten 59 at-bats under his belt. He went hitless in the Reds 6-5 win over Houston on Sunday, and that snapped his three-game streak of hitting safely. Look for him to start a new streak this evening as he’s hit for a .353 clip with four HRs and 10 RBIs in 51 career at-bats vs. Cubs righty Paul Maholm.
Scott Hairston had the game of his life last Friday hitting for the cycle through the 6th inning against the Rockies. His bat has cooled off since as he’s collected just two hits in his L/11 at-bats, but he could be in store for another big night at the “Juice Box” matched up against lefty Wandy Rodriguez whom he’s 6-for-13 versus lifetime with 2 doubles, 2 HRs, 3 RBI and a pair of walks.
“NOT WORTH THE PRICE TAG”
Though Carlos Gonzalez has been smoking hot for his daily fantasy backers collecting eight hits (2 HR) in his L/15 trips to the plate, stay far away from him on Wednesday afternoon when he stares back at the Dodgers lefty. Reason being? Well, Clayton Kershaw has limited him to just three hits (all singles) and struck him out nine times in his 18 career at-bats against him. With “Cargo” currently demanding a Top 5 daily MLB lineups salary, he’s just not worth the price in this match-up!
