MLB DFS 6/17: Fantasy Friday

by June 17, 2022 0 comments

If your MLB DFS bets are a constant struggle then tonight will most definitely ring up some cash. The night slate is packed with a 12-game stretch beginning at 7:05, which will be quite amusing. The Padres pursue their NL West kingship as they continue their road trip in Colorado at 8:40. The AL showcase presents an AL West matchup premiering the scuffling Angels and Mariners at the late hour of 10 pm. Nevertheless, here are some studs that must be an addition to your lineups.

Toeing the Slab

Jordan Montgomery at Toronto ($7,900)

The southpaw may not bring the heat, yet his high-arched delivery has been quite effective. In his sixth year as a pro, Montgomery has solidified his game. Flashing a 2.70 ERA along with 51 strikeouts, the towering lefty has been a promising asset to the Yankee rotation. In Saturday’s interleague matchup against the Cubs, Montgomery was untouchable as he shut down the Chicago lineup over seven innings. Let’s see how Montgomery stacks up as the Bombers head to Toronto for a three-game set.

Michael Wacha vs. St. Louis ($7,400)

A surprising factor of the Red Sox rotation, Wacha has made vast improvements since his 2021 fluke. Boston was in search of a middle-class arm which the veteran proves to be at a higher value than expected. Presenting a 2.33 ERA on top of just 14 earned runs, Wacha is only mirroring his former Cardinal self. While the Mariners got to him early in Saturday’s start, the right-hander is bound to snap back as he faces his former Cardinal squad.

The Sluggers

Rhys Hoskins, 1B ($4,700)

After a prolonged slump at the plate, Hoskins is now the hottest hitter on the fantasy market. While he is yet to crack the .260 mark, the Phillies’ first baseman is playing at a .300 level. Collecting nine hits over a four-game stretch has only justified his recent flourish at the plate. Four of those hits came in on Tuesday’s contest with the Marlins which Hoskins plated six runs. Nonetheless, you can only hope that the 29-year-old continues his surge as he faces Bailey Falter in Washington.

Amed Rosario, SS ($4,600)

A former top prospect for the Mets, Rosario has suddenly become a stud for the Guardians. While a slow start seemed to chip away at his confidence, Rosario has slowly turned the tables. Boasting a 10-game hit streak in which he collected 18 knocks, the 26-year-old now flaunts a .272 batting average. The Guardians are flowing with high-average hitters and Rosario has finally joined the VIP club.

Charlie Blackmon OF, ($4,400)

It’s pretty clear that Blackmon is out of his prime. He is no longer a .300 hitter, however, the famed “Chuck Nazty” proves to be a vital component of the Rockies lineup. Slugging 10 long bombs to the addition of a .259 batting average, the Dallas native is squeezing out the final drops of his career. Smacking five knocks in the recent series with the Guardians, Blackmon is eager to resume his triumph as the Padres come to town.
