Nick Ahmed Daily Fantasy News, Rankings, Projections

Nick Ahmed (finger) scratched Tuesday; Ildemaro Vargas replaces

Ahmed has been scratched from the Arizona Diamondbacks original confirmed lineup and will not start in Tuesday’s matchup against the Miami Marlins due to a finger injury. He’ll be replaced in the lineup Ildemaro Vargas, who will now play shortstop and slot directly into Ahmed’s vacated seventh spot in the order. However, the remainder of the Diamondbacks lineup will stay intact offensively as they face off against left-hander Caleb Smith at home this evening.

Caleb Smith has allowed 10.9% Barrels/BBE with decreasing strikeouts (23.4% last 30 days)

Caleb Smith has a 27.8 K% and 4.13 ERA that matches his 4.19 DRA and .316 xwOBA. All pretty decent stuff. However, an extreme fly ball pitcher (27.4%), his 10.9% Barrels/BBE can get hidden a bit in Miami, especially with all the strikeouts. Over the last month though, the strikeout rate is down to 23.4%, as Smith has allowed eight HRs over five starts. Nineteen of his 29 HRs have come on the road this season and that’s where he pitches tonight, in Arizona, against an offense with a 116 wRC+ and 18.2 HR/FB vs LHP. The Arizona lineup has already been posted and features five batters above a 125 wRC+ and .250 ISO vs LHP this year: Ketel Marte (147 wRC+, .294 ISO), Eduardo Escobar (128 wRC+, .273 ISO), Wilmer Flores (160 wRC+, .309 ISO), Nick Ahmed (143 wRC+, 256 ISO) and Carson Kelly (187 wRC+, .325 ISO). All are above a .340 xwOBA against LHP this year as well. While the Diamondbacks are implied for a healthy 5.1 runs, that’s still just a middle of the board mark tonight and bottom of the order bats here would seem a very contrarian way to go in GPPs.

Robbie Ray (10.2%) & Steven Matz (9.1%) are both bottom three on the board in Barrels/BBE

The game in New York tonight will feature two southpaws against two offenses who have done a lot of damage to LHPs this year. Both Robbie Ray and Steven Matz have been above average pitchers with an ERA right around four, but both are also among the bottom three on the board in terms of Barrels/BBE.

Over his last four starts, Ray has walked 16.7% of batters and while his strikeout rate has remained consistent at 30.6%, it does so with a drop in SwStr to 11% over that span. His 10.2% Barrels/BBE is second worst on the board. Ray has also been merely average vs RHBs this year (.328 wOBA, .325 xwOBA). The projected lineup for the Mets features five RHBs above a 125 wRC+ and .190 ISO vs LHP this year: Amed Rosario (131 wRC+, .213 ISO), Pete Alonso (151 wRC+, .366 ISO), J.D. Davis (131 wRC+, .205 ISO), Wilson Ramos (159 wRC+, .196 ISO) and Todd Frazier (128 wRC+, .231 ISO). More interestingly, Alonso is the only one above $4K on DraftKings or $3K on FanDuel.

Steven Matz has been quite a bit better recently and perhaps doesn’t deserve to be attacked that hard. He has a 2.17 ERA and .258 xwOBA over the last month, though a SIERA two runs higher over that span and has allowed 9.1% Barrels/BBE on the year. The projected lineup for the Diamondbacks does not contain a single left-handed bat and while Matz has allowed just a .314 wOBA to RHBs with a supporting .312 xwOBA, 18 of his 23 HRs have been surrendered to batters from that side. The Arizona projected lineup features five batters above a 140 wRC+ and .250 ISO against southpaws this season: Ketel Marte (146 wRC+, .294 ISO), Eduardo Escobar (128 wRC+, .277 ISO), Wilmer Flores (147 wRC+, .315 ISO), Nick Ahmed (144 wRC+, .260 ISO) and Carson Kelly (193 wRC+, .333 ISO). Weather and umpire may also lean towards boosting offense in a normally very negative run environment, as premium subscribers can confirm. With both teams implied for just 4.25 runs tonight, this could be a sneaky spot for offense.

Mini-Stacking overlooked game out west

There are a lot of good options to stack or mini stack tonight and I'm going to recommend an Arizona team I think will be somewhat overlooked. With 5 hitters carrying a .259 ISO vs the opposite hand the D Backs are in a great spot at what should be low ownership against Richard tonight in San Diego. While the ballpark is far from ideal it isn't nearly as bad as most think rating about average in the summer months for righty power. Tonight will be warm and humid which should help things as well. I don't think I would go crazy and 5 man stack this one but I do love picking 3 or 4 of these Diamondbacks as a mini stack against Richard and the Padres this evening. In order I would prioritize Pollock, Goldy, Marte, Souza then Ahmed. All make for nice 1 offs if you don't want to stack or mini stack this one.

Opportunity + Positional Scarcity

If you're not playing Trea Turner at SS you're likely slotting in Ahmed for cheap as long as he's batting second against the southpaw Joey Lucchesi. Much like our other value play Mikie Mahtook, Ahmed doesn't have a strong offensive skill-set, so this play is more about opportunity + positional scarcity than anything else. SS is continually one of the weaker positions and Friday is no different outside of Turner, so it makes sense to save a few bucks to spend elsewhere if you're not set on playing Turner.

One lineup is suddenly deep with proficient bats against LHP with the return of another one of their hitters

The Arizona suddenly looks a bit deeper, especially against LHP with both A.J. Pollock (146 wRC+, .336 ISO vs LHP last calendar year) and Steven Souza (148 wRC+, .180 ISO) a part of it. They join prominent lefty-masher Paul Goldschmidt (195 wRC+, .405 ISO) in an intended assault on Eric Lauer, against whom LHBs have a .387 wOBA and 41.6 Hard%. While Nick Ahmed (130 wRC+, .241 ISO) and John Ryan Murphy (141 wRC+, .298 ISO) have great results against southpaws as well, the former does so with a .329 xwOBA (33 points below actual), but still has some value at a low price point. The latter finds himself batting eight tonight.

Lining Up Well in a Favorable Home Matchup

The Diamondbacks are finally starting to swing the bats a lot better these days, and they draw a fine home date with inconsistent young lefty Eric Lauer and the Padres this evening. Lauer has been particularly woeful against RHBs this year, allowing them to post a 41% hard contact rate, 33% line drive rate, and .387 wOBA.

Paul Goldschmidt is your top option here with his .373 ISO and .452 wOBA against lefties despite his awful start to the season, while A.J. Pollock is off the disabled list and also a strong play. If you are looking for value, Nick Ahmed should hit 2nd and carries a respectable .366 wOBA of his own against southpaws this season.

I Would Pay More For This

There is not a lot of excitement in clicking the name Nick Ahmed into your DFS lineups, but the skills against lefties say we should be thrilled to roster him at this salary. He has a .241 ISO and .366 wOBA on 44% hard hits with below average strikeouts against left-handed pitching this season, carrying over from what he did in 2017. He should be hitting ahead of Goldschmidt, adding even more value. He's an easy fit at this salary on all sites in all formats.

Excellent Value Hitting Second

Nick Ahmed is always one of my favorite value hitters when Arizona is facing a left-handed pitcher, as he has a .241 ISO with a .366 wOBA against southpaws this season. On top of that, he has a 44.3% hard-hit rate and his average exit velocity is 88.2.

Opposing pitcher Eric Lauer has struggled with righties in his rookie season. He has a .384 wOBA with a .189 ISO and a 41.6% hard-hit rate against RHB. Lauer also relies on his fastball a lot, yet he has a .400 wOBA with a .460 CXwOBA and a 40% hard-hit rate allowed on that pitch type this season.

Great standalone spot for a huge first base bat tonight

The Diamondbacks have just a 3.83 implied run lines and they're down to just one bat who really hammers LHP tonight, but Paul Goldschmidt (188 wRC+, .403 ISO vs LHP last calendar year) should at least be a high stand alone priority against a pitcher who has struggled more than his peripherals would indicate. Andrew Suarez has estimators nearly a run below his 4.43 ERA, but his 23 K% is not supported by a 7.3 SwStr% and his 89.2 mph aEV may be masked in a great home park, which he's not pitching in tonight. The humidor has had some effect in Arizona, but it's still not San Francisco and Suarez has struggled greatly against RHBs (.368 wOBA, 50 Hard%). This is a great spot for at least Goldy and possibly Nick Ahmed (134 wRC+, .259 ISO), though his xwOBA is 37 points lower than his actual against LHP over the last calendar year, and Ketel Marte (111 wRC+, .187 ISO) as an affordable middle infield option.
