MLB DFS Top Pitchers for Saturday 4/29/23
As the MLB DFS slate for Saturday, April 29th, unfolds, one pitcher stands out among the rest – Kevin Gausman. The San Francisco Giants’ right-hander has been dominant against right-handed batters this season, with a 30.0% strikeout rate and a 4.4% walk rate over 121.1 innings pitched.
Gausman will be facing off against the Seattle Mariners, who are batting .225 against right-handed pitchers this season. While there are a few strong hitters in the Mariners’ lineup, including Julio Rodriguez and Jarred Kelenic, Gausman’s impressive strikeout and walk rates make him a formidable opponent for any batter.
Julio Rodriguez, one of the Mariners’ most dangerous hitters against right-handed pitchers, has a high strikeout rate of 24.7%, making him vulnerable to Gausman’s dominant pitching. Ty France, another right-handed hitter in the Mariners’ lineup, has a solid .330 xwOBA against righties, but Gausman’s low walk rate of 4.4% makes it difficult for batters to get on base.
While the Mariners have a few hitters with impressive ISO and xwOBA numbers, Gausman’s pitching is likely to limit their offensive capabilities. With his impressive season stats and favorable matchup, Kevin Gausman is a top pitcher to consider for your MLB DFS lineups on Saturday.
Hunter Greene is a top pitcher to watch today, with impressive stats against both left-handed and right-handed batters. With a strikeout rate of 35% against lefties and 26.1% against righties, Greene has shown his ability to dominate both sides of the plate. He also has a relatively low walk rate, which helps him limit the damage from opposing batters.
The Oakland Athletics, Greene’s opponent for the day, don’t have the most intimidating lineup when facing right-handed pitchers. While they have some hitters with decent power, they also have a few batters with high strikeout rates and low expected wOBA.
One batter to watch out for is Aledmys Diaz, who has a relatively low strikeout rate and a decent ISO against righties. However, Greene’s ability to generate swings and misses could give him the upper hand in this matchup.
Overall, Greene’s combination of strikeout potential and control make him an intriguing option for DFS players looking for a top pitcher on today’s slate.
Eduardo Rodriguez of the Detroit Tigers is another intriguing pitching option for Saturday’s slate. As a left-handed pitcher, he has performed well against left-handed batters, limiting them to a .185 ISO and a .318 xwOBA over 24.1 innings pitched. Against right-handed batters, he has a higher strikeout rate of 19.3%, coupled with a lower walk rate of 6.5% over 97.2 innings pitched, making him a balanced pitcher against both sides of the plate.
At a price of $6,600, Rodriguez could be a solid value play for those looking to invest in a mid-tier pitcher with upside. However, it is important to note that he is facing a tough matchup against the Baltimore Orioles, who have a powerful lineup that could pose a challenge for Rodriguez. Overall, Rodriguez is an interesting option to consider for those looking to diversify their pitching lineups.
