MLB DFS Top Pitchers for Wednesday 4/26/23 Main Slate
Power Pitching: Hunter Brown and Taijuan Walker lead the top tier for Wednesday’s Main Slate
Starting at the top of the price range, Hunter Brown of the Houston Astros and Taijuan Walker of the Philadelphia Phillies are our top choices for the day. Brown has been dominant recently, with a 26% strikeout rate and a recent outing where he struck out nine batters in just five innings. He now faces a Rays team that has struggled against hard-throwing righties, giving him an excellent chance to rack up strikeouts and earn valuable fantasy points.
Walker, on the other hand, has been consistently good this season with a 3.53 ERA and 20% strikeout rate. He’s matched up against a Mariners team that has struggled against pitchers with similar arsenals, making him a reliable option for those willing to pay up for a starter.
Solid Mid-Range Pitching Options for Wednesday’s Main Slate
In the mid-price range, we have Logan Gilbert of the Seattle Mariners and Drew Smyly of the Chicago Cubs. Gilbert has been impressive in his sophomore season, boasting a 24% strikeout rate and a 3.24 ERA. He’s facing a Phillies team that has struggled against pitchers with similar arsenals, and he could dominate and provide excellent value for his price.
Smyly, a crafty lefty, is up against the San Diego Padres, who have hit just .247 against soft-throwing lefties over the past two seasons. He has performed well against current Padres hitters and has a 21% strikeout rate and a 6% walk rate. He’s a solid mid-price option for those looking for a reliable starter.
Finding Hidden Gems: Low-Cost Pitchers with High Potential
For those looking for value, Roansy Contreras of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Michael Wacha of the San Diego Padres could provide a low-cost option. Contreras has a tough matchup against a stacked Dodgers lineup, but he has shown flashes of brilliance, with a 21% strikeout rate and a 10% walk rate that could lead to big returns.
Wacha has a similar profile to Contreras and is facing a Cubs team that has struggled against pitchers with similar arsenals, making him a low-cost option with potential upside.
