Seager is in a prime spot, regardless of site tonight against Taijuan Walker and the Diamondbacks. He gets to take advantage of the lefty/righty matchup, which is excellent for his career .508 SLG and .198 ISO. In my opinion, he’s the clear best shortstop option on DraftKings and FanDuel.
For the DraftKings crowd, Asdrubal Cabrera continues to be under-priced. Batting second, Cabrera has the opportunity to grab some extra plate appearances in a lineup with one of the better implied totals of the night. There are 11 guys with second base eligibility that have a higher salary than him, which is absurd. Don’t pass on his discounted price.
Moving to the opposite dugout from Cabrera, we’re also moving to the opposite site, as this is a play for the FanDuel peeps. Ryan Braun is priced at $2800, which is $1800 cheaper than his DraftKings price. Harvey struggled with the long ball in 2017, giving up 2.04 HR/9 in 92.2 innings. While Braun has made a career in mashing left handed pitching, I’m more than happy to grab him here versus the right handed Harvey.
