    Philadelphia Phillies

    Aaron Nola faces four Cardinals LHB that have combined for a 0.138 ISO and 0.277 wOBA versus RHP

    With each passing start, Aaron Nola continues to cement himself as a bonafide ace starting pitcher in Major League Baseball, and he will look to build upon his most recent dominant stretch, where he's surrendered just two earned runs in 20.1 innings over his last three outings, in a matchup with the St. Louis Cardinals this afternoon. With Noah Syndergaard and Stephen Strasburg also taking the mound today, Nola may get overlooked by daily fantasy players, but he simply shouldn't be given his elite batted ball and run prevention skill set. Yes, Nola doesn't have the strikeout upside of most other high-end starting pitchers, but he still sports a more than respectable 23.0% strikeout rate and an 11.7% swinging strike rate that should lead to some positive regression in the punchout department, especially when examining the 26.6% strikeout rate and 10.8% swinging strike rate Nola posted during the full 2017 season. Nola will more than likely always be slightly less effective against left-handed hitters than right-handed hitters, but he's definitely made significant strides in that facet of his game, as he's limited lefties to just a 16.6% hard-hit percentage this year, despite owning a 13.5% strikeout rate and 9.2% walk rate against them. However, Nola more than makes up for those middling statistics with an otherworldly 34.0% strikeout rate and 1.9% walk rate versus righties. Working even more in Nola's favor on Sunday is the fact that this Cardinals squad is significantly depleted with Paul DeJong and Yadier Molina sidelined with their respective injuries, and the lefties that remain in the Cardinals lineup, like Matt Carpenter and Dexter Fowler, continue to struggle mightily at the plate. So, with that, it's easy to see why Nola sets up well as a pivot away from Syndergaard and Strasburg in tournaments on FanDuel, though given their manageable price tags, an interesting strategy could be to pair Nola and Syndergaard together on DraftKings, especially if one finds themselves unsmitten by any potential value options at the starting pitching position this afternoon.

    Wei-Yin Chen has a -10.9% K-BB% and 8.83 xFIP versus RHB through four starts

    Chen is set to make his fifth start since being activated from the disabled list in late-April, and he's generally been pretty atrocious to begin his 2018 campaign, as evidenced by the 14 earned runs surrendered in just 16.2 innings pitched and the inability to make it past the fifth inning in nearly all of his aforementioned outings. Chen has been absolutely shelled in two of those starts, and it is currently reflected in his 6.79 SIERA and 7.34 xFIP, numbers that appear to be well deserved considering he has been relatively on par with his career averages in a .250 BABIP and 75.2% left-on-base-percentage thus far. That said, a large majority of his troubles are stemming from some control issues (13.9% BB%) that have led to him walking more batters than he's struck out to this point in the season, and on top of that, both right-handed and left-handed hitters have been creating hard contact at least 37.5% of the time, which becomes a recipe for disaster when combined with a 59.3% fly ball rate and abysmal 11.4% strikeout rate. The lack of command to batters on both sides of the plate makes this Atlanta Braves offense an intriguing one to target in all formats, and Vegas has taken notice with the Braves checking in at the second-highest implied run total on Sunday's entire main slate. Ozzie Albies (38.8% HH%, 0.314 ISO, 0.427 xwOBA vs LHP in 2017/18) is the obvious top option of any Atlanta hitter given his ridiculous splits against left-handed pitching to this point in his career, but he's closely followed by Freddie Freeman (38.1% HH%, 0.258 ISO, 0.469 xwOBA vs LHP in 2017/18), who is consistently overlooked by the masses when facing off with a southpaw, despite his own impressive numbers against lefties the last two seasons. Then, just a tier below, Ronald Acuna (40.0% HH%, 0.241 ISO, 0.471 xwOBA vs LHP), Tyler Flowers (0.453 xwOBA vs LHP in 2017/18), and Johan Camargo (0.234 ISO, 0.436 xwOBA vs LHP in 2017/18) are all perfectly fine options as members of a stack or as one-offs in large-field tournament formats.

    Daniel Mengden a Solid Value at SP?

    Daniel Mengden may not be a name you get excited about rostering for DFS purposes, but he has been a surprisingly consistent source of value so far this season. In his last three starts against BOS, HOU, and BAL (not the easiest pitching matchups) he has managed at least 15 DK points in each, and even picked up a win at Fenway Park in his last outing in the process. Mengden has had success by not issuing free passes - he has faced 92 LH hitters this year and is yet to walk a single one. Today he faces a Blue Jays team that has a 24.6% K-rate, which may raise his floor as well. As value pitching is going to be important on a slate with so many high priced bats in great spots, Mengden may be a sneaky but solid source of value to build around.

    Cubs Lefties in a Great Spot Against Mahle

    Tyler Mahle has had some solid starts to begin his major league career this season, which may mask the fact that he has been so terrible against lefties. Thus far Mahle has not only allowed a .415 wOBA to hitters from the left side, but is walking LH hitters at a 13.5% clip. He also is only generating 7.8% soft contact against lefties, which explains the .573 SLG% LH hitters have against him. An outing in the hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark against a Cubs team with strong LH bats could get ugly quick - Rizzo, Schwarber, and the red-hot Ian Happ all profile as great options today.
