Draftkings, Sunday August 2nd, EARLY ONLY, Top Plays
We had a great night last night, lets continue this roll today with some Early only action. Yesterday, we gave you Lucas “Double Dong” Duda (although he didn’t find his way into our cash games sadly) and Manny Machado who also had a great game. Lets see if we can pick out some studs for today’s Early Games.
1B Anthony Rizzo ($5,000)
Rizzo and the Cubs will be very popular this morning. Kyle Lohse is not a goo pitcher. He’s equally terrible vs both Lefty and Righty batters. Look for the Cubs to show their Dong Face a few times this afternoon.
Kyle Lohse vs LH: .268 avg – .326 OB% – .352 wOBA – 34% Hard Contact Rate – 45% Fly Ball Rate
Anthony Rizzo vs RHP: .387 wOBA – .252 ISO – 44% Fly Ball Rate – 34% Hard Contact Rate
SS Carlos Corea ($4,900)
Correa has quickly become one of the brightest young stars in the game. He’s smashing both Left handed and Right handed pitching early in his career and he gets a matchup today with Robbie Ray, who, while pitching better than expected this season, still really struggles vs Right Handed hitters.
Robbie Ray vs RHB: .222 Avg – .283 wOBA – 46% FB Rate – 44% Hard Contact rate
Carlos Correa vs RHP: .354 OB% – .401 wOBA – .293 ISO – 43% FB Rate – 37% Hard Hit Rate
Ray’s numbers are a little missleading, as you see he only allows a .222 avg and a .282 wOBA to Righties, but, they hit the ball really hard against him. Against a team like the Astros, who hit more home runs than anyone in Baseball, this is a bad matchup for Ray
