DraftKings MLB Daily Fantasy Picks 7/16/19

Top Pitchers

Walker Buehler ($10,200) vs Phillies– Buehler was roughed up 2 starts ago in Colorado allowing 7 ER in only 5.2 innings but other than that he has been stellar on the mound for the Dodgers. If you don’t count the game at mile high he has only allowed a total of 5 ER in his last 4 starts. He also has been racking up the K’s with 29 Ks in the last 3 games. He will be up against a Phillies team that hasn’t scored more than 4 runs in any of their games post all-star break. Buehler is the 2nd highest priced pitcher tonight but in this matchup and with the way he has been pitching I strongly believe he is worth it.

Jack Flaherty ($7,400) vs Pirates– Flaherty has been up and down this season but tonight against the Pirates I think he will be able to build off his great last start where he only allowed 2 hits and 1 ER in 7 innings of work vs the Giants. The Pirates have really struggled offensively after the break only scoring 10 total runs in 4 games. Flaherty comes in at a very reasonable $7,400 price point and the pitchers tonight are relatively week and I believe Flaherty is better than a lot of those priced above him. Look for him to have another solid outing at home in a divisional matchup.

Top Hitters

Matt Chapman ($4,500) vs Mariners– A’s 3B Matt Chapman has come out of the all-star break hitting the ball extremely well going 6/11 with 3 R and 2 RBI’s over 3 games. Going back to before the break he has at least 1 hit in 6 of his last 7 games. He will be up against Mariners SP Marco Gonzalez tonight who he has seen very well going 9/20 with four 2Bs in his career. Chapman at $4,500 is a very good price in my opinion for tonight.

Manny Machado ($4,100) vs Marlins– Like Chapman, Manny Machado has hit the ball very well since the break with 4 R 3 HR and 3 RBI’s in 3 games. He could have had another one on Sunday but he was robbed in center field of a home run by Ronald Acuna Jr. Machado has shown that he can get hot quick this season and with him returning to his home town of Miami I think he will be able to build off his success of his last series vs the Braves.

Robinson Cano ($3,300) vs Twins– It’s safe to say Robinson Cano’s season with the Mets hasn’t been what fans have desired but it looks like we may have hit a turning point. He comes into tonight’s game 17 hits in his last 11 games and has had multiple hits in 6 of those games. In their last series he racked up 6 hits with 4 R 2 HR and 3 RBI’s. He is priced really low tonight, especially against Twins SP Michael Pineda who Cano is hitting .500 against with 2 HRs in 12 career ABs.

Robinson Chirinos ($3,200) vs Angels– Chirinos at $3,200 seems like a good option for me tonight at catcher which has been pretty weak overall in my opinion so far this season with the exception of a couple. He has 40 RBI’s on the season so he is still a threat to knock in some runs but his average has been what’s holding him back. He will be up against Angels SP Andrew Heaney who he has hit .364 with 2 HRs and 3 BBs against in 14 career ABs. If there was ever a time to roster Chirinos it’s tonight.
