MLB DFS Preview for Tuesday 8-22-23
Hey there, sports fans! It’s time to gear up for an exciting 12-game MLB DFS slate on Tuesday, August 22. As always, TeamRiseOrFall has you covered with insights, analysis, and predictions to help you make informed decisions for your fantasy lineups. So, let’s jump right into the action!
Weather Check and Matchup Highlights
Before we break down the players, let’s take a quick look at the matchups and weather conditions. The Angels are back in action after yesterday’s weather-related postponement, while the Yankees enjoy some favorable wind conditions at home. Over in Cleveland, the Guardians are hosting the Dodgers, and the Braves are in for a hot night in Atlanta.
Overall, we’re in for an exciting evening of baseball with no major rain concerns.
Top Pitching Options
When it comes to the mound, we have some strong contenders to consider. At the top of the list, we’ve got Blake Snell and Zac Gallen. Snell boasts a solid 31% strikeout rate and a 4.15 Sierra. Facing the Marlins, who have a 111 WRC+ against lefties, Snell looks poised to deliver. Gallen, on the other hand, faces the Rangers, who can pack a punch despite their recent struggles. With his 35.3% hard contact rate and 4.15 Sierra, Gallen’s a solid option if you’re looking for a pivot play.
For those seeking a sleeper pick, keep your eyes on Bailey Ober. He’s set to face the Brewers, who rank 27th in WRC+ against righties. With a 4.98 xFIP and a 23.2% strikeout rate, Ober presents a favorable matchup that could pay off big.
Hitting Stacks to Consider
Let’s talk about the batters. With no Coors Field on the slate, we’ve got the Dodgers and the Braves as top choices. However, their balanced fly ball and ground ball rates may not play as strongly in our favor. Instead, consider the Seattle Mariners. They’re riding a hot streak and facing off against Mike Clevinger, who’s due for regression with a 5.37 xFIP. This presents a great opportunity to stack some affordable Mariners players, like Julio Rodriguez and JP Crawford.
Don’t miss out on some potential home runs tonight! Julio Rodriguez from the Mariners is on fire with a 250 ISO, and he’s facing a struggling Clevinger. Another strong pick is Thomas from the Nationals, with a 165 WRC+ and a 419 wOBA. Keep an eye on the wind conditions, which could favor some power hitters.
There you have it, folks! A comprehensive preview of the MLB DFS action for Tuesday, August 22. Whether you’re targeting top pitchers like Snell and Gallen, or looking for sleeper picks like Ober, make sure to craft your lineups with insight and strategy. And don’t forget those dinger calls – Rodriguez and Thomas are poised to make an impact.
Good luck in your contests tonight!
