MLB DFS Top Plays for 8-2-23

Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Plays article for Wednesday 8-2-23. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to the world of daily fantasy sports, we’ve got you covered with our expert analysis.

Joc Pederson ($4,000 DK, $3,100 FD)

Joc Pederson has been on a tear against right-handed pitchers this year, boasting an impressive 11 home runs, a .370 OBP, .239 ISO, and 136 wRC+ in 219 plate appearances. His advanced metrics are equally impressive, with a .496 xSLG, 51.9% hard-hit rate, 91.3 mph average exit velocity, and 12.5% barrel rate. Facing the inexperienced Slade Cecconi, who has struggled in Triple-A with a 6.38 ERA and 5.52 xFIP, Pederson is poised to deliver big today.

Matt McLain ($5,600 DK, $3,900 FD)

Matt McLain has been nothing short of sensational against left-handed pitching in his rookie season, with four home runs, two stolen bases, a .397 OBP, .290 ISO, and an impressive 169 wRC+ in just 68 plate appearances. His overall numbers are equally impressive, with an .305/.376/.527 slash line and 11 home runs. McLain is set to face Drew Smyly, a below-average pitcher with a 4.17 xERA and 4.73 xFIP. Expect McLain to continue his dominance against lefties.

Spencer Steer ($4,300 DK, $3,400 FD)

Spencer Steer has been a force against left-handed pitching since his MLB debut, with eight home runs, two stolen bases, a .383 OBP, .271 ISO, and a strong 154 wRC+ in 133 plate appearances. Steer’s prowess against southpaws makes him a valuable asset in today’s matchup.

Christopher Morel ($4,800 DK, $4,100 FD)

Christopher Morel has been in scintillating form, slugging .280/.341/.538 with 16 home runs in 64 games. His advanced metrics are equally impressive, with a 15.2% barrel rate, .484 xSLG, 49% hard-hit rate, 91.7 mph average exit velocity, and .345 xwOBA. Morel will face the struggling Brandon Williamson, who has a disappointing 5.71 xERA and 5.23 xFIP. Expect Morel to take advantage of this favorable matchup.

LaMonte Wade ($3,500 DK, $2,900 FD)

LaMonte Wade Jr. has been exceptional against right-handed pitching this year, boasting a .417 OBP and 140 wRC+ in 290 plate appearances. As the first batter against the debuting Slade Cecconi, Wade has an opportunity to set the tone for his team and deliver a strong performance.

Amed Rosario ($3,900 DK, $2,900 FD)

Amed Rosario has shown proficiency against left-handed pitchers since 2021, with a .345 OBP, .172 ISO, and 127 wRC+ in 466 plate appearances. Facing the lefty Hogan Harris, Rosario could make a significant impact in today’s game.

Mookie Betts ($6,200 DK, $4,200 FD)

Mookie Betts has been having a stellar season, already launching 28 home runs and carrying an impressive 150 OPS+. He excels against left-handed pitching, with a .677 slugging percentage and 181 wRC+. Facing Hogan Harris, who has struggled with hard hits, Betts is in an excellent position to shine.

Chris Taylor ($3,200 DK, $2,800 FD)

Chris Taylor has displayed solid performance against left-handed pitchers, with a .322 OBP, .216 ISO, and 110 wRC+ in 396 plate appearances. Although he faces a tough opponent in Joe Ryan, Taylor’s consistency against lefties makes him a viable value play.

Jordan Walker ($2,900 DK, $2,900 FD)

For those seeking a value play, consider Jordan Walker. Though relatively new to the league, Walker has shown potential with a .265/.330/.420 slash line and nine home runs in 67 games. He’s up against Joe Ryan, who despite being an impressive pitcher, has struggled with surrendering home runs. Walker’s power potential makes him an intriguing choice for your lineup.
