DraftKings Pitcher Picks For May 26
Welcome back to the best place to get expert Starting Pitcher Selections for DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball contests. Below are my picks for Tuesday night, May 26th, 2015. My Monday picks brought a decent result for the price with Odorizzi ($8000) getting 23.55 FP and Anderson ($7000) getting 12.35 FP. There are a full set of MLB games Tuesday on the DraftKings late slate of baseball contests starting at 7:05 pm. Good Luck!
David Price (DET) at OAK for $10600: The Tiger lefty is having a good season with a 3-1 record, 3.32 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 54 Ks in 59 2/3 IP. He had dominant stuff last time out against HOU earning 31.4 FP while striking out 12 and giving up just 2 ER in 6 2/3 IP. Tuesday he and the Tigers (-120 road favorite) face the 17-30 As who are hitting a putrid .212 vs. LHP, 28th in the majors. Expect Price to continue his dominance and get you around 30 FPs.
Jacob deGrom (NYM) home vs. STL for $10000: deGrom is having a great year with 5 wins, a 2.75 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 54 Ks in 55 2/3 IP. He is coming off a masterful performance on 5/21 vs. STL, allowing no runs, one hit, no walks and striking out 11 in 8 innings. He also has been especially effective at home in pitcher-friendly CitiField, averaging 26.6 FP in six starts. He takes the mound for the Mets who are huge -185 favorite at home against the 18-27 Phillies who have the worst offense (3.17 rpg) in the majors.
Call to the Pen
Jorge De La Rosa (COL) at CIN for $6500: The veteran righty De La Rosa recently became the Rockies all-time strikeout leader (774 total, 31 in 27 2/3 IP in 2015). He is not having a good year but has a great chance to get things back on track against the Reds, who have lost 9 in a row. The Reds are 28th in the league in runs scored and their current starters are hitting .257 lifetime vs. De La Rosa. In his two starts away from Coors Field this season, De La Rosa has been decent with 21.9 FPPG, a 2.13 ERA and 12 Ks in 12 1/3. At $6,500, you can do a lot worse and this price will allow you to get a top-tier SP (see above) or a bunch of top batters.
