MLB DFS 7/16: Bargain Bin Diving

Advertisement

Back for some more fun in MLB DFS? Well, we’ve got you covered once again with the All-Star Break quickly approaching. For today, we are going to dive into the bargain bin for some of the cheapest options. These guys could really pay off. Let’s get right into it.

Be sure to check us out daily for our MLB DFS content.

On the Hill

Max Meyer ($5,000) vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Making his major league debut against the Phillies today, Meyer is the 25th-ranked prospect in all of baseball, based on Johnnie’s Top 100 rankings. He was also the top prospect in my preseason Miami Marlins Top 5 Prospects list. The right-hander got off to a terrific start to the season before an elbow injury slowed him in May. He is now fully healthy again and hasn’t given up more than two runs in his five starts since returning. Meyer has struck out 25 batters in 21 1/3 innings over those starts, including seven punchouts in his latest start last week. The 2020 draft pick is capable of double-digit strikeouts behind one of the most devasting sliders I have seen and a high-90s fastball. He might not go too deep into this game, but he can rack up the strikeouts and limit the Phillies’ bats.

In the Field

Trey Mancini ($2,800) vs. Tampa Bay Rays

The Orioles have been on fire, winning 10 straight games, and Mancini has a lot to do with that. The first baseman has hit safely in 19 of his last 20 games. Plus, he has a favorable matchup against left-hander Ryan Yarbough, who has failed to record a strikeout in each of his last two starts. On top of that, Yarbough has allowed 13 earned runs on 22 hits over his last three outings, and Mancini is 11-for-27 with three homers against him in his career.

Darick Hall ($3,500) vs. Miami Marlins

Although we are looking for Meyer to have a solid start, one guy who could rake against him is Hall. Although he has slowed a bit of late, he got off to a scorching start to his big league career and feasts on right-handers. At Lehigh Valley this season before the call-up, the 26-year-old smashed righties to the tune of a .304 batting average and 1.039 OPS with 20 home runs. So far in the majors, he has just one plate appearance against left-handers and has a 125 wRC+ against right-handers. After having a slow week, Hall recorded a double, RBI, run scored, and walk for 11 DraftKings points yesterday.

Adam Frazier ($2,700) vs. Texas Rangers

Facing off against a struggling right-hander in Spencer Howard, Frazier comes into this one on a five-game hit streak. The second baseman went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a walk, and two runs scored last night. He has scored double-digit fantasy points in three of his last five games and looks to be catching fire a bit. Although he is not having the greatest of seasons to this point, Frazier has hit .310 with a 108 wRC+ in July so far. Howard has over an eight ERA in his five outings this season.

Good luck with all of your MLB DFS lineups.

Do We Really Need All-Star Games Anymore? 

It is safe to say last weekend’s event re-ignited the long-running criticisms of the NBA All-Star Game, which has historically been an event where most will only play at about half of their usual intensity to let their fellow players shine. Five players cracked the 30-point barrier, and Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an eye-popping 50 points.
