The Daily Three Pack – Yahoo MLB DFS Picks- August 13, 2019

Welcome to the Daily Three Pack where we share three core players on Yahoo that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Tuesday, August 13, 2019.

Pitcher to Target

P-Matt Boyd-$40

Boyd is coming off a horrible start against the Royals but had been pitching really well. Boyd had allowed two runs or less in each of his previous three starts and had struck out at least eight in each of his previous seven starts. One of those starts was against the Mariners and in that game, Boyd allowed one run while striking out ten in 6.1 innings of action. With the way, the Mariners are hitting the ball (dead last in team wOBA over the past two weeks) there is no reason to believe that Boyd doesn’t cruise again in this one. At his salary, he is by far my favorite pitcher on a slate loaded with elite pitchers.

Hitters to Target

2B-Gleyber Torres-$14

On Yahoo Torres is likely to be the highest owned player on the slate and I am okay with eating the chalk on him as he is too cheap especially for him to be facing the Orioles. This season after three home runs and seven RBIs in the double-header Torres now has 13 home runs and 20 RBIs against the Orioles. In his 58 at-bats, he is slashing .414/.485/1.138 against them. There is also no reason to believe that Torres slows down against them tonight as he gets to face off against John Means who is not an elite pitcher at all.

OF-Josh VanMeter-$11

VanMeter is way too cheap on Yahoo tonight for what he brings to the table. VanMeter has his in each of his past three starts and has crushed right-handed pitching this season to the tune of an OPS of .886, an ISO of .204 and a wOBA of .375. The right-handed pitcher he is facing Joe Ross is also really bad against left-handed hitting. This season Ross is allowing lefties to slash .333/.468/.476 with a .408 wOBA.
