DraftKings Late MLB Picks For April 10

There are ten games today. Half of them are early, and half of them are late. Most of the aces took the mound this afternoon, but there are a couple hanging around tonight. Are they worth using? Where can we find pitching bargains? Let’s check the stats!

Due to time constraints, you are just getting my lineup and the theories behind it. I will go back to the regular strategy when time permits.

Tyler Glasnow will make his much anticipated 2017 debut against the Reds tonight. He pitched well against the Reds last year, and could be a great source of value if using a Coors stack.

P: Jon Lester ($11,300): Lester has held the Dodgers to a .200 average in 110 at bats. They have hit three homers, but only turned that into nine runs. What truly sets Lester apart tonight is the 35 strikeouts in those 110 at bats. He has tremendous strikeout potential tonight, and is worth paying the extra money for.

P: Jacob deGrom ($9,300): There aren’t a lot of cases where the two aces are worth paying for, but this is one of them. You can try Finnegan and his hot start, or go with Glasnow and his tremendous upside, but I am electing for deGrom’s history against the Phillies. Philadelphia is hitting just .190 in 63 at bats with one homer, only two runs, and a solid 15 strikeouts. You have to guess right with bargain hitters to use a lineup like this, but there is some possible value in Washington tonight.

C: Cameron Rupp ($3,100): As tempting as it is to take Kyle Schwarber against lefty Alex Wood, I am going to punt catcher and go with Rupp. He is just 1-6 lifetime against Jacob deGrom, but that hit is a home run. It’s a risk, but there are hitters I would rather have over Schwarber.

1B: Adam Lind ($3,300): Lind has four hits in six tries against Adam Wainwright with two doubles, a homer, and a pair of RBI. Stacking against a bulldog like Wainwright can end in failure, but the Nationals are off to a hot start offensively and have a good history against Wainwright. If you want to pay for pitching instead of a Coors stack, a stack against Wainwright is plan B.

2B: Addison Russell ($3,600): After a miserable first week, Russell erupted on the Brewers over the weekend. He can score a lot of runs in this lineup, and will also have plenty of chances to drive them in. I will try Russell’s mini hot streak against Wood at Wrigley.

3B: Ryan Zimmerman ($3,500): Zimmerman has three home runs already this year after hitting just 15 last year in 427 at bats. He finally looks healthy again, and it looks like Zimmerman still has something left in the tank. Zimm is 10-32(.313) with five doubles, two homers, and three RBI against Wainwright in his career.

SS: Luis Sardinas ($3,400): You have to check the lineup heading up to this game because Erick Aybar usually starts, but Sardinas has the history against Tyler Chatwood. Sardinas has three hits in six at bats with a double, a homer, and two RBI against Chatwood. Make late swap work for you! If Sardinas doesn’t start, we can still switch him out! Great idea, huh?

OF: Michael Conforto ($3,500): Conforto didn’t get his first start of the 2017 season until last night. He responded with a home run in that game. If the Mets go with him tonight, which they may, he is a great cheaper option. Conforto is 5-14(.357) with two walks, two doubles, a homer, and three RBI against Jerad Eickhoff. I will take that over Curtis Granderson‘s 2-15 against Eickhoff! Let’s see if the Mets do.

OF: Travis Jankowski ($4,000): Most are going to use the big boppers at Coors, but the ball isn’t really flying out of there yet. The April air in Denver is still rather heavy. Jankowski is 2-4 with two doubles and two walks against Chatwood. A guy with his speed spending that much time on the bases can only be a good thing, right?

OF: Bryce Harper ($5,000): Harper is 7-18(.389) with two walks, two doubles, and a solo homer against Wainwright in his career. You could elect to go with Jayson Werth, who has two homers against Wainwright, but hitting just .167, but I will take Harper as more of a sure thing. Of course, if you go with Werth, you can take some of the Colorado power against Jarred Cosart.
