MLB Pitching Primer: Wednesday, June 13th
Everything in the sport of baseball comes down to the hitter-versus-pitcher matchup – which makes pitching the most important element of MLB DFS play. Without an understanding of the best pitching plays on the day, your DFS efforts will be sunk! Each day, the Pitching Primer will provide you with some of the top pitching plays on the day – taking a close look at the “why” behind these picks, and helping you to identify pitchers others might overlook.

We’ll start with FanDuel this morning since they have divided the early games into “Very Early” and just “Early”, which makes me Very Annoyed. I wish they could have made this one slate somehow with more games, but it is what it is.
If you are playing cash games on the “Very Early” slate, your decision is essentially between Jacob deGrom and J.A. Happ. It is not news-breaking to say that deGrom has been the superior pitcher this year, but the price discount and better matchup at least brings Happ into the discussion. If salary is no issue, I would ideally like to take deGrom. There is absolutely no problem if you have to drop down to Happ though.
