Afternoon Chalkboard Picks

Washington Nationals vs. RHP Tanner Roark – 5.3 implicit careers

While Roark is a solid pitcher, he is not spectacular and is on the downside of his career. He spent his first six seasons on The Show with the Nationals before practicing in Oakland and Cincinnati last year, and this will be his debut for the Blue Jays. Roark allows left-handed power, but Washington is without Juan Soto. That leaves Eric Thames, Asdrubal Cabrera and Adam Eaton to carry the load.

Assuming the short list is an option, which will depend on the Phillies and the Yankees, we can also look Trea Turner, Howie Kendrick and Starlin castro to complete the Nats stacks.

Main Whiteboard Selections

Chicago White Sox vs. RHP Adam Plutko – 5.0 implicit executions

Assuming Cleveland goes to Plutko in one of his games on Tuesday, we want to target him. In the past two seasons, he has pitched 186.0 innings in the MLB and most came as a starter. In that time, he has allowed 43 home runs with 1.82 HR / 9 to righties and 2.27 HR / 9 to hitters on the opposite hand. Almost half of his pitches end as flying balls, which bodes well for the opposition.

The White Sox have a lot of power in the lineup on both sides of the plate. The preferred order of preference, considering price, position eligibility, projected output, and popularity, would be Yasmani Grandal, Eloy Jiménez, Jose Abreu, Nomar Mazara and Edwin Encarnacion. Note that there is a double header, so not everyone can be in the lineup.

Milwaukee Brewers at LHP Derek Holland – 5.4 implicit careers

This Brewers iteration can be pretty right-handed with the solo left-hander as a former MVP Christian Yelich. Ryan Braun and Yelich are the first two hitters to target their ISO .270+ index against left-handers. Avisail Garcia, Manny Pina, Jedd Gyorko and Justin Smoak It also has above average wood.

During his last more than 800 right-handed hitters faced, Holland has allowed a rate of 1.85 HR / 9 with 17% of all flying balls leaving the park. In the past two seasons, it’s approaching a double-digit walk rate, which means there should be ducks in the pond.

Evening Blackboard Picks

Los Angeles Dodgers at LHP Framber Valdez – 4.6 implicit runs

After a steamy start to the 2018 season, Valdez returned to earth last year. He divided the time between the rotation and the bullpen, but was mediocre at best. With a double-digit walk rate on either side of the plate, even his 63 ground ball percentage couldn’t save him all the time.

While he has more problems with right-handers, we know that Dodger left-handers can handle hand-to-hand confrontations. Mookie Betts and Justin Turner are the main priorities Chris TaylorKike Hernández and AJ Pollock provide some discounted differentiation plays in the lower half of the order.

Late Slate MLB DFS Picks

Oakland Athletics vs. RHP Antonio Senzatela – 5.7 implicit runs

Senzatela had a 6.71 worst career ERA last season. While he was bad at Coors Field with a 6.21 ERA, he was even worse on the road with a 7.29 ERA in 13 unfortunate starts. Neither traditional nor advanced metrics have a very positive twist to put putrid performance.

Athletics can hit a lot, but they also have light tower power. Matt Olson, Matt Chapman, Mark Canha, Khris Davis and Marcus Semien all have ISO .175-.200 + in the last two seasons against right-handed pitchers. Make sure you have some A’s in your lineups on Tuesday.
