Eddie Rosario and Eduardo Escobar might be two of the hottest hitters in the league. Over the last 7 games, Rosario has 4 HRs and 12 RBIs and is hitting a cool .443. As for Escobar, he only has a 1.267 OPS during that span. With John Gant getting called up tonight to start for the St. Louis Cardinals, the Hermanos Ed can inflict some damage to the young RHP. Gant has struggled in his brief chances in the majors; I expect more of the same tonight. Let’s take a look at the rest of the picks tonight for your DFS team on Draft.

PITCHERS

Fernando Romero, P: The young prospect is making the second start of his career. He went 5 2/3 with 0 ER in his first start and has a nice match-up against the Cardinals. This is a risk/reward type play, but if he can limit his walks, I believe he can post a QS and 6-7 Ks.

Stephen Strasburg, P: Top option of the night. Padres are one of the worst offenses in the MLB. Anything less than 9 Ks tonight would be a disappointment. Lock him in and watch him go to work.

HITTERS

Brandon Belt, IF: Crushing RHP this season and gets a nice match-up against Zach Eflin. Lefties have slugged .596 off Eflin for his career and he has allowed 21 HRs in just 67 innings of work vs lefties.

Matt AdamsIF: He’s making the most of his opportunities and basically hitting a HR every night out. Got to ride the hot bat as he faces another RHP in Tyson Ross.

Nicholas Castellanos, OF: 10. Thats the number of ERs Matt Moore gave up his last time out. Castellanos has been hot as of late and has been mashing LHP in 2018 (1.324 OPS, .547 wOBA).

Albert Almora Jr., OF: If he gets the start tonight, this should be a great play against Jarlin Garcia. Almora has crushed LHP to a tune of .898 OPS and .382 wOBA. Garcia has been pitching well this season, but doesn’t strike out many batters.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

Looks like we have a clear night with no potential for PPD.

Doing Lines In Vegas

Detroit Tigers at -120 for the night seems like stealing; facing Matt Moore should give Fulmer plenty  of run support. Gimme the Cubs at -1.5 runs at -115; Garcia finally gets visit from the Regression fairy. Slugfest expected in STL/MIN: over 9 runs should be within reach.

    Picked up Escobar as a Corey Seager replacement…are we sure they aren’t the same person? What are the chances Escobar ends up turning in a very Seager-esque season? I am glad I didn’t accept any of the bogus trades sent my way after Corey went down.

    Question on catchers…
    I am in a deep roto dynasty league 5×5 w/OBP- one catcher league but I own both Austin Barnes and Lucroy. Barnes was supposed to be Lucroy insurance but neither are doing much of anything and AB isn’t even getting any playing time. Would you trade Rhys Hoskins for Gary Sanchez? I love Hoskins but have a chance to win the title this year and thought now might be the time to strike on Sanchez.

      @Cam: Yea Seager is definitely a tough loss but I dont think necessarily Escobar is quite on that level. He is a fine replacement in a position that is pretty shallow, he did have 21 Homeruns last year and has been batting clean-up recently. So a 25HR-85RBI season would be within reach if he can keep it up. As for the the Hoskins-Sanchez trade, I would lean towards the Sanchez side. He can be the best at that position for a long time.

    Cargo, Dahl and Desmond…are at Coors this week. Who’s my best bet? Would you “force” a 2nd or even 3rd Rockie bat in there t the expense of either the horrific Rizzo? or the almost equally as disappointing Stanton? or both for that matter? Am I getting carried away with the Coors factor here?

    • Ignacio says:

      @Chucky: If you were to force anyone in the line up I would go with Dahl, they are set to face 4 RHP. I wouldnt bench Rizzo or Stanton for any of those guys though. Even if the Coors factor is in effect.
