DFS pitchers for June 4
We’re diving into the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) craze and will be bringing you the two pitchers we’re using in Draft Kings with other possibilities as well.
Chris Young: The tall Royals righty is a tremendous value at just $4,900 for a start in his spacious home ballpark against a pretty good Indians lineup. Young carries a 1.55 ERA and 0.86 WHIP into the contest, so there is some regression coming, but we think it will come in a smaller park where his fly-ball tendencies don’t work as well. Using Young allowed us to afford to stock our lineup with stars like Bryce Harper, Nelson Cruz and Joey Votto.
Anthony DeSclafani: The Reds righty is another bargain at just $7,000 against the weak-hitting Phillies in Philadelphia. DeSclafani brings a 3.41 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into the game.
