Wednesday, June 12th

Happy Wednesday! We are going to focus on the main eight-game slate tonight, but I’ll start with a quick peek at the early four-game DK slate.

Early Slate Overview

FanDuel has split their early action into two two-game slates, which doesn’t leave much to look at. On DK, we have a four-game slate, but officially, this is my least favorite kind of slate and I would recommend playing very lightly if at all.

    RE: Ramirez vs DeSclafani. Why don’t you like an extreme fly ball hitter vs an extreme fly ball pitcher? Seems as though it would be an ideal situation.

    Extreme fly ball against extreme fly ball is what leads to easy infield pop ups. The best thing to get is a line drive. Generally speaking, fly ball pitchers get those fly ball pitches from pitching high in the zone. Fly ball hitters have more of an upper cut swing that works best on balls middle of the zone or lower. When you get a guy with a fly ball swing swinging at high pitches, the ball just goes straight up in the air more than it goes far.
    There is still plenty of home run potential there, but there is also almost no chance of line drive doubles in the gap on fly ball vs fly ball.
