What a great weekend right? Right in the thick of the summer season, Grilling out by the pool drinking your Trulys and White Claws, playing some cornhole and what the hell else that’s right you degenerates, that’s why we are here to win some cash playing DFS. Hope you cashed some this weekend and are back at it today for some more sweats. All right let’s get to it. Not a big MLB slate today (7 games) We do also have a Mets/Braves doubleheader but for DFS purposes I’ll just avoid those games altogether. The three pitchers that jumped out at me right away were Luis Garcia, Ohtani and Marquez. I also think they will be the highest owned of the slate as the rest are dicey at best. You can make a case for Joe Ross as a cheap low owned pitcher that was playing really good before the stint on the IL so no problems if you want to get behind Ross but I think the other three I mentioned have a way bigger floor. I’m planting my flag on my main teams on Luis Garcia ($10,000). I don’t know if he will be the lowest owned of the three but I can easily envision a scenario where Garcia goes deep into this ballgame against the Mariners today. The Mariners are coming off a successful 3-1 winning series against the Athletics where the three games the Mariners won were all by one run. It was a very hard fought series and I think a weary Seattle team and bullpen is what we get tonight with no announced starting pitcher yet from Seattle. Luis Garcia has been a very productive pitcher so far this season and has racked up the K’s with 105 K’s in just over 90 Innings. Garcia has a 5 pitch arsenal and predominately uses a 94 mph fastball to set up his cutter and slider which he can pinpoint at the edges of the plate. Garcia has improved his command and his last two starts have only walked 2 batters in 11 innings so if he can get a umpire that gives a little on the edges Garcia will be in great shape here. Garcia is filthy against right handed batters at a 0.92 WHIP and slightly elevated against lefties but Seattle doesn’t have a great left handed lineup right now with really only Kyle Seager presenting any issues against righties. I think this is a smash spot for Garcia and he goes at least 7 INN with 4 Hits 1 BB 9 K’s and 0 ER today and gets the win. I think he can match Ohtani’s numbers today with a discounted price and lesser ownership.
