Today we’re going to try and dig into this Slate and figure out which players top the charts in our “Dong Detector”. Our goal is to help you find HR hitters.
As we all know, everyone loves the long ball and in the DFS world, especially on Social Media, the MLB Long Ball is King. The HR is the key In DFS and having the player or two with a HR or two (aka Double Dong) can lead to winning lots of $$$.
Joey Votto (CIN) 1B
Against RHP Zach Grienke, Joey Votto has a scorching .414 BA and 3 Dongs in his 34 PAs.
Team BVP Dong
Kansas City Royals
Career against Justin Verlander
Eric Thames (MIL) 1B/OF
Everyone will be on Shaw with the RHP Gerrit Cole matchup, who would be a great play too, but I think its Thames tonight. Cole has a .355wOBA and a 42% fly ball rate against LHHs. Thames has been cold so it’s time to “wake up the bats!”
Mark Trumbo (BAL) OF
The O’s should a popular play again tonight. Career against LHP Martin Perez, Mark Trumbo has 2 DONGs and a .417 BAA in only 14 PAs. Perez is allowing a .362 wOBA and a massive 37% hard contact rate to RHHs. If you played them last night, go back to the well for some more DONGs, if you didn’t no better time than now to jump on the DONG train.
J.D. Martinez (ARI) OF
Let’s hope this guy makes his DBacks debut in Great American Ballpark. If he does, he has an amazing matchup v RHP Tim Adleman who is dreadful and serves up the long ball. Adleman has allowed a .395 wOBA to RHHs and has given up 19 DONGs all year.
Day Early Dong
Joey Gallo (TEX) 1B
With a .311 ISO v RHP and 17 DONGs, Joey Gallo shows up on the Dong Detector once again. All this guy does is DONG or strikeout. Well, tonight, he is in a great hitter environment. It’s going to happen and I think we were just a day early. RHP Kevin Gausman allowed 1.68 HR/9 to LHHs with a 40% fly ball rate.
