The Daily MLB Fantasy Pulse- 5-3

Daily-Fantasy-PulseYesterday’s Studs

Nate McLouth- The hot streak continues for the Baltimore lefty. Last night, he went 2/5 with a home run and 2 RBI’s.

Carlos Gomez- Another outfielder with a solid hot streak in place. Last night, Gomez beat up St. Louis to the tune of 2 hits, an RBI, a walk and 2 stolen bases.

Tyler Flowers- A.J Pierzynski’s long time backup is flashing some serious power in a full time role.  Last night, he belted out a 3 run shot against the Rangers.

4/26 Pitchers

Clayton Kershaw- He’s damn expensive, but he is damn worth it. San Francisco’s best hitter, Pablo Sandoval has a career .697 OPS versus Kershaw. He is facing Barry Zito, who couldn’t even make it 4 innings in his last start, which basically gives Kershaw the win from the start. In his career, Kershaw has a .66 ERA versus the Giants. If you don’t start Kershaw, I won’t feel bad for you losing your money.

Johnathan Pettibone- Fans of the Miami Marlins have every reason to hate Jeffrey Loria. Daily fantasy baseball players, on the other hand, have every reason to love him. Night in and night out, the Marlins field a triple-A quality baseball team and with Mike Stanton out on the DL, there is not one player in that lineup that scares any opposing pitcher. Pettibone will be dirt cheap and provide value, facing the Marlins and Ricky Nolasco.

4/26 Hitters

Evan Longoria- I need to begin by saying this: start your Tampa Bay Rays. While as a whole, the team has struggled versus lefties, Jeff Francis is one of the worst pitchers in the majors and he couldn’t be a worse fit for Coors park. Longoria has been swinging a hot bat, and I like his chances of hitting a homerun tonight.

Chris Denorfia- In 2013, Denorfia is slugging .484 off of lefties and tonight, he faces Wade Miley who walks 13.6% of right handed batters who he faces and is the owner of a 4.68 xFIP versus right handed hitters. Denorfia will be dirt cheap and could have a big night.

Asdrubal Cabrera- Pedro Hernandez, Minnesota’s starting pitcher for tonight, just isn’t very good. Last season, in Triple-A, he owned a 5.19 ERA. Tonight, he has to try and get big league hitters out. Cabrera has had a slowish-season, but he is cheap and fits in well with my Rays stack for the night.

Robinson Cano- If you are keeping track at home, spend your money on Longoria, Kershaw and Cano. Away from the Caverns of O.Co, A.J Griffin gives opposing batters a .300 OBP and .413 slugging percentage. Cano has an insane 1.126 verus right handed pitchers this year. Like printing money, folks.

Andrew McCutchen- If you have the cash, Cutch isn’t as expensive as most elite level talents due to his slow start, but he could get it going tonight. He is 3 for 3 in his career versus Ross Detweiler and is hitting much better off of righties this year. Worth a shot if he has a suppressed price.
