3/30/2018 MLB Plays of the day

Now that the craziness of opening day is over, it is time to get back to the grind. Here are some of my favorite plays for todays MLB slate.

Pitcher – Kyle Hendricks – $9,900 (DK)  $8,200 (FD)

Hendricks is facing the thinnest lineup in the MLB tonight, and you are getting him at a value price relative to his matchup. Hendricks has a career 50% ground-ball rate, and should induce many grounders and whiffs tonight. Probably the safest cash pitcher on both sites, Kendricks is a must play in my eyes.

Catcher – Brian McCann – $3,400 (DK)  $2,300 (FD)

Going up against disaster-artist, Doug Fister, McCann has a very good matchup tonight. McCann has good splits against righties in his career, slashing .267/.346/.469 and posting a .349 wOBA. He isn’t a sexy play, but he makes sense for both cash and GPPs.

First Base – Carlos Santana – $4,200 (DK) $3,200 (FD)

Carlos Santana may not find himself in a better spot all season. He is facing Mike Foltynewicz, who can’t pitch to left-handed batters to save his life. Not only is it a good pitcher matchup for Santana, but SunTrust park is an absolute launchpad for left-handed batters. Expect the Phillies to put up a lop-sided score tonight in Atlanta, and expect Santana to be a big part of that.

Shortstop – Didi Gregorious – $3,900 (DK) $3,500 (FD)

Didi is in a great spot tonight vs. Toronto, and makes a lot of sense whether you plan on stacking the Yankees or not. I actually like this matchup for Aaron Sanchez, but Gregorious has one of the most favorable matchups for any Yankee batter tonight. Didi posted a .228 ISO and a .348 wOBA last year against righties. He is a good play in both cash and GPPs.

Third Base – Scott Kingrey – $3,000 (DK) $2,500 (FD)

The hype is real around Kingrey, and I am buying in. After posting a massive spring, the Phillies put him on the opening day roster and he will be making his first MLB start tonight. With an extremely favorable matchup and a cheap price, roster him while he is still cheap.

Outfield – Aaron Judge – $5,100 (DK) $4,200 (FD)

Judge is expensive, but rightfully so tonight. After Stanton’s big Yankee debut, Judge may go over looked in a good matchup tonight. Last year, Judge had a .369 ISO and a .440 wOBA against righties. He is worth paying the price for tonight, and I would not be surprised if he has a multi-homer game.
