Sports Info Solutions: MLB DFS Advice for Wednesday, June 13th

America’s pastime and daily fantasy sports are a perfect fit with an overload of data and statistics to analyze before making your lineup selections.

Because of the amount of information available to the DFS player, it can be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve tried to help you out by recommending a number of well-priced options by using Sports Info Solutions’ SIS Model 3

SIS Model 3 gives DFS players an edge when setting their lineups as it uses the most expansive and accurate wealth of baseball data to create a tested DFS algorithm. You can learn more about the development of the algorithm in the RotoGrinders Marketplace.

Pitching Option

Tyler Anderson (FD Price $6,000)

There are a number of high-priced pitchers available today, but for the same reason we saw Jon Gray strike out 10 Phillies batters Tuesday night, we are going back to the well tonight. Philadelphia owns a league-worst 26.0 K%. As you would expect, Anderson is a much better pitcher away from Coors Field with a higher K/9 (8.0) and lower xFIP (3.94). The pitching decision will allow us to start as strong an outfield as possible.

Hitting Options

C/1B) Tucker Barnhart (FD Price $2,400)

Barnhart has been actively involved in the offense the past few games, raising his wOBA to .318, and faces a struggling Jason Hammel Wednesday night. Hammel is a FB/SL pitcher and Barnhart has had the most success this season against those two pitches.

2B) Jedd Gyorko (FD Price $2,700)

Gyorko took Padres lefty starter Eric Lauer deep the last time they faced each other and should be in the starting lineup at 2B Wednesday considering he owns a stunning .531 wOBA against LHP.

3B) Justin Turner (FD Price $3,200)

Turner hasn’t found his batting stroke from a season ago, but he can still hit LHP (.357 wOBA). He’s also had success against Cole Hamels in 14 career plate appearances (.396 wOBA).

SS) Yairo Munoz (FD Price $2,900)

The rookie has put up respectable numbers this season, but the interesting data point is his solid production against LHP (.380 wOBA).

OF) Tommy Pham (FD Price $4,000)

We continue our assault against Padres’ Lauer with Pham who has continued to produce after his breakout season of 2017 (23 HR, 95 R, 73 RBI, .398 wOBA). He’s posted a .396 wOBA against LHP in 2018.

OF) Michael Brantley (FD Price $4,500)

It’s amazing what finally being healthy has done for Brantley’s production (.316, 11 HR, 40 RBI, .378 wOBA). Eight of those home runs came against RHP where he owns a .398 wOBA.

OF) Marcell Ozuna (FD Price $3,900)

Another Cardinals hitter who took Lauer deep the last time they faced each other, Ozuna has finally found his “Miami swing,” batting .390 in 11 June games with a .494 wOBA.

UTIL) Joey Votto (FD Price $4,500)

Votto facing RHP is always a great matchup (.432 wOBA).

Stacking Option

When it comes time to draft a fantasy baseball team in DFS, stacking is a widely accepted strategy. There’s a reason: it works. If you want to win big, you will need a gigantic score, and stacking makes it easier to rack up the points because the scoring of batters in a given lineup is interrelated. Batters reaching base allows the hitters down the line to drive them in, creating something of a snowball effect.

St. Louis Cardinals

Gyorko, Pham, Munoz and Ozuna are the best stack for the evening slate or you could throw in young Harrison Bader who also homered against Lauer back on May 11.
