Pitching Options

We’re in for a treat when it comes to pitching options tonight. There’s a wide range of choices with varying price tags, making it essential to identify the best value for your buck. Here are a few standout pitchers to consider:

Kevin Gausman (SF) – $10,900

Strengths: Gausman boasts an impressive 31.7% strikeout rate and a solid 3.17 ERA. He’s a workhorse who consistently goes deep into games, making him a reliable option.

Weaknesses: The Nationals don’t strike out a lot, but they also lack power and walk discipline. Gausman’s skills make up for this matchup’s lack of strikeouts.

Andrew Abbott (CIN) – $10,300

Strengths: Abbott enjoys a favorable park shift in San Francisco. He has a solid strikeout rate and faces a Giants team struggling against lefties.

Weaknesses: Abbott can be susceptible to fly balls, but the Giants’ lack of power offsets this concern.

Grayson Rodriguez (BAL) – $8,700

Strengths: Rodriguez offers great value with his price tag. He faces the struggling White Sox offense, which strikes out a lot against righties.

Weaknesses: His home run rate is a bit high, but the White Sox’s poor offensive performance against righties is in his favor.

Brian Woo (SEA) – $7,800

Strengths: Woo comes at an affordable cost and faces an Athletics team that strikes out often. The favorable matchup outweighs his fly ball tendencies.

Weaknesses: While he can give up fly balls, the Athletics’ lack of power plays to his advantage.

Hitting Strategies

With Coors Field in play, the Atlanta Braves become a must-consider stack. They’re the league’s top offense, and the favorable hitting environment boosts their potential even further. Ronald Acuna, Matt Olson, Austin Reilly, and more are high-priced but high-upside options.

Consider mixing them with affordable Padres hitters like Fernando Tatis and Manny Machado. They’re facing Adam Wainwright, whose struggles could lead to a big night for San Diego.

Home Run Calls

For some potential home run fireworks, keep an eye on Matt Olson and Trent Grisham. Olson gets the Coors Field advantage, and Grisham faces Adam Wainwright’s generous pitching style. Both players could provide some serious power in tonight’s games.


This is just a brief rundown of the key players and strategies to keep in mind for tonight’s MLB DFS action. Remember, the key to success in DFS is finding the right balance between high-priced stars and value plays to maximize your lineup’s potential.

So gear up for an exciting night of baseball action, and best of luck in your DFS endeavors!
