MLB DFS Top Pitchers for Wednesday 4/5/23
Gerrit Cole ($9800 DK):
Cole is facing the Philadelphia Phillies, whose hitters are batting just .218 against right-handed pitchers over the last two years. Additionally, current Phillies hitters have not faced Cole often, leading to a lack of meaningful matchup data. Cole’s DK projection of 28.58 is the highest on the slate, making him a solid high-priced option.
Jacob deGrom ($9500 DK):
deGrom is one of the top pitchers in the league and is facing the Baltimore Orioles, who have struggled against right-handed pitchers with a 20.2% strikeout rate. deGrom has an impressive K% of 43%, and opposing batters are hitting only .202 against him over the last two years. He is projected to earn 25.04 DK points.
Cristian Javier ($8100 DK):
Javier is facing the Detroit Tigers, who have struck out 31.7% of the time against top-tier right-handed pitchers like Javier over the last two years. Javier has a K% of 33% and is projected to earn 27.54 DK points.
Logan Webb ($7500 DK):
Webb is facing the Chicago White Sox, whose right-handed hitters have a strikeout rate of 25.7% against top-tier right-handed pitchers like Webb over the last two years. Webb’s 22% strikeout rate and 3.49 SIERA make him a solid mid-priced option.
Eduardo Rodriguez ($6800 DK):
Rodriguez is facing the Houston Astros, who have struck out just 16.5% of the time against soft-throwing left-handed pitchers like Rodriguez over the last two years. However, Rodriguez’s price tag is low and his 4.56 SIERA and 9% walk rate make him an option for those looking to save salary.
Patrick Corbin ($6000 DK):
Corbin is facing the Tampa Bay Rays, who have struggled against left-handed pitchers like Corbin with a .209 batting average over the last two years. While his SIERA and ERA are higher than most on this list, his price tag is low and he may be able to provide value for those looking to save salary.
