Daily Fantasy MLB picks for Wednesday, August 23

Luis Severino is the safe and strong pick today

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Full docket of games today (15) scattered from 3:05pm -10:07pm. The highest of the pitchers is Corey Kluber ($11,000) who will face the Boston Red Sox


Weather
(as of now):
We could see some rain in Cleveland but we all games should play today.


Target
: Luis Severino ($9,900) @ Detroit Tigers
1. In only 1 outing in his last 7 has Luis allowed more than 1 ER.
2.  He has struck out at least 6 in 9 of his last 10 contests.
3. Away vs. Home he's pitching with more K%'s, fewere BB%'s, lower average and better WHIP.


Stack Against
: Andrew Heaney vs. Texas Rangers
1. One of these years I'm convince Heaney will be a great pitcher, just not this year.
2. First game he allowed 5 ER across 5 IP.
3. The Rangers have been up and down over their last 5 scoring 5 or more twice and 3 or fewer three times, I think this is an up


Two Hitters I like:

  • Yoan Moncada ($2,800) hoping he can build off a nice 2 hit game yesterday. Despite his bad batting average he actually has 9 RBI's across 26 games batting .233 vs. righties (when he bats as a lefty)
  • Jose Ramirez ($2,900) doubling down here, he's in for a nice game, just not sure when it will be, this is great value for that potential

Two Hitters to avoid:

  • Kyle Seager ($3,300) batting just .143 across 14 AB against R.A. Dickey.
  • Billy Hamilton ($3,300) batting just .182 across 11 AB vs. Mike Montgomery..
