Best Pitchers for Draftkings and Fanduel MLB DFS Lineups 9-3
As we delve into today’s slate, the art of pitching takes center stage once again. While yesterday’s lineup of pitchers provided quite a spectacle, today’s choices present an intriguing mix of potential and risks. Our selection features a formidable array of hurlers, each with their strengths and areas to watch.
Zac Gallen (ARI) vs. BAL: A Resilient Contender
Recent memory may conjure up a less than stellar performance for Gallen, but we’re quick to dismiss that hiccup as even the best wrestle with the likes of the Dodgers. Zooming out, Gallen boasts an impressive track record with a 2.80 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, and a solid 9.7 K/9 rate over his last 25 starts. A home-field advantage adds extra allure to his pitch, with jaw-dropping stats of a 1.79 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 10.9 K/9 rate in the welcoming confines of Arizona. It’s a tantalizing prospect that ignites intrigue.
Sandy Alcantara (MIA) at WAS: Finding His Groove
Alcantara, while not replicating his Cy Young-winning form from last season, has been regaining his composure as of late. A 3.22 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across his last dozen starts tell a tale of resurgence. A showdown with Washington is the perfect stage for him to shine, given his history of mastery against this team. Sporting a remarkable 0.90 ERA and 0.78 WHIP from their encounters last year, Alcantara’s poised for another standout performance.
Tarik Skubal (DET) at CWS: Rising Above the Numbers
Skubal’s stat sheet might not entirely encapsulate his prowess, as his 3.93 ERA belies the strength he exudes on the mound. Subtracting a single outlier, his record boasts an impressive 2.91 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP, and a dominant 10.9 K/9 rate this season. With a matchup against Chicago, a team struggling to find their offensive rhythm, Skubal’s poised to shine. The White Sox’s 25th rank in runs scored and their vulnerability in key metrics only add to Skubal’s appeal.
Chris Sale (BOS) at KC: Embracing the Risk
Sale’s presence on the field carries an air of uncertainty, but his undeniable talent makes him a gamble worth taking. While his early outings raised eyebrows with 15 runs conceded, his subsequent transformation into a stud, sporting a 3.56 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP, and a 10.6 K/9 rate, proves his mettle. Against Kansas City’s lackluster offensive prowess, Sale’s poised for replication. Their bottom-tier standing in runs scored, OBP, OPS, and wOBA further supports his favoritism in this matchup.
