MLB DFS Preview for Tuesday 8/29/23
Hey there, sports fans! It’s time to dive into the exciting world of MLB DFS as we gear up for an action-packed Tuesday slate on August 29th. We’ve got 12 thrilling games on the schedule. So grab your peanuts and Cracker Jacks, because we’re about to break down the top plays for your DraftKings and FanDuel lineups. Let’s get into it!
First things first, let’s address the minor weather concerns for tonight’s matchups. The Baltimore Orioles are hosting the Chicago White Sox, and there might be a hint of rain, but nothing to lose sleep over. Similarly, the Boston Red Sox will be taking on the Houston Astros, with a potential sprinkle of rain later in the game.
Over in New York, the Mets are up against the Texas Rangers, and while there could be some rain, it’s unlikely to be a game-changer. As for the Chicago Cubs hosting the Milwaukee Brewers, there might be a bit of rain early on, but more notably, the wind will be blowing in from left field, giving pitchers a little extra edge.
When it comes to tonight’s pitching roster, there are several strong options above the 10K mark. We’ve got the likes of Pablo Lopez at 11.3K, Clayton Kershaw at 11.1K, Merrell Kelly at 10.9K, George Kirby at 10.8K, Justin Steele at 10.6K, Corbin Burns at 10.3K, and Jose Barrios at 10.1K. These aces promise a mix of consistency and potential.
George Kirby seems particularly intriguing at 10.8K, sporting an impressively low 2.3% walk rate and allowing fewer than one home run per nine innings. His solid 3.67 Sierra suggests he’s a reliable pick, and his knack for keeping the ball on the ground (44.2% ground ball rate) bodes well for his chances tonight.
Pablo Lopez (11.3K) comes with a stellar consistency factor, but his match against the Cleveland Guardians might not be a straightforward strikeout fest. Cleveland’s disciplined approach at the plate gives Lopez a challenge, despite their lack of power.
Meanwhile, Justin Steele (10.6K) could capitalize on the wind blowing in at Wrigley Field. His 0.72 home runs allowed per nine innings is impressive, and his knack for keeping the ball out of the air is a good strategy, especially with favorable wind conditions.
But wait, there’s more! Cole Irvin (6.6K) offers a cost-effective option with the chance to shine against the Pittsburgh Pirates. His 28.7% strikeout rate and 51% medium contact rate could make him an under-the-radar gem.
Hitters to Target
Alright, let’s get down to the exciting stuff: the hitters.
Coors Field is once again a focus, with the Atlanta Braves leading the charge. The league’s best offense in the league’s best hitting environment can’t be ignored. So, load up on your Braves hitters for some serious potential.
Seattle Mariners are on an absolute tear and facing a pitcher who struggles with lefties and righties alike. Players like Suarez and Ty France are excellent options to consider, and don’t forget about the red-hot Oscar Hernandez.
The Baltimore Orioles have been putting up runs like nobody’s business. Jesse Scholtens from the Chicago White Sox may have his hands full, making this a prime opportunity for hitters like Anthony Santander, Cedric Mullins, and Ryan Mountcastle.
That wraps up our comprehensive MLB DFS preview for Tuesday’s slate. Remember, it’s all about finding that perfect blend of consistency and upside. Whether you’re targeting Coors Field fireworks, stacking Seattle Mariners, or seeking value in unlikely places, there’s a wealth of options at your disposal. Good luck and happy DFS-ing!
