Welcome to the Daily Four Pack where we share four core players on FanDuel that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Tuesday, August 20, 2019.
Pitcher to Target
Keuchel was awful two starts ago against the Marlins allowing eight runs in just 3.2 innings of action but don’t let that start scare you away from him tonight. Keuchel is not going to have another bad outing against the Marlins as they are just awful. This season the Marins have scored the third-fewest runs, have the second-lowest team wOBA and have the lowest team ISO against left-handed pitching. Keuchel has also shown that he can shut the Marlins down as he went 7.1 innings while only allowing two runs in his first start against them.
Yesterday’s Results: Wade Miley 38.0 fantasy points
Hitters to Target
Flores is always on my radar whenever he faces a left-handed pitcher and tonight he is one of my top overall players on the slate as he is smoking hot. Flores has four multi-hit games in his past five games with four home runs in those games. The left-handed pitcher Flores is facing Kyle Freeland is also a really bad pitcher. While Freeland has struggled with hitters from both sides of the plate he has struggled the most with right-handed hitting allowing them to slash .301/.367/.599 with a .393 wOBA this season.
Yesterday’s Results: Aristides Aquino 3.0 fantasy points
I really like Stewart at the site minimum tonight. Stewart has not done much this season but did have a two-hit two-RBI game last night and has shown flashes of his talent last season. The main reason why I want to play Stewart at minimum salary is his match-up with Brad Keller. While Keller is not an awful pitcher he has really struggled on the road against left-handed hitting. This season in his road starts, lefties are slashing .296/.371/.413 with a .338 wOBA.
Yesterday’s Results: Josh Reddick 3.0 fantasy points
Make sure Trout is in the lineup in the second game of the double-header. If Trout is in the lineup as he should be he is my favorite stud on this slate as he takes on Brock Burke at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Not only is Globe Life Park the best hitters park on this slate but Burke is making his first career start after allowing six runs in just three innings of work in his second start in Triple-A his last time out.
