Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings – 4/20/16

zz draft kings

Trey Rose (Featured BBBA Fantasy Baseball Writer/Owner – dynastydigest.sportsblog.com) 

P – Ubaldo Jimenez (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $7,000. It’s typically not a good idea to start a pitcher against the powerful Blue Jays offense, but Jimenez could be an exception. In 206 career at bats against Jimenez, the Blue Jays are only hitting .204 with 61 strikeouts. With this large sample size, I feel confident enough to say that Jimenez will contain the Jays offense. At this price point, he provides a lot of flexibility with the rest of the lineup.

P – Danny Salazar (vs. Seattle Mariners): $9,500. Danny Salazar is a strikeout machine. Throughout his career, he is averaging 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings. This year is no different. In his first two starts, he has thrown 11 innings with 16 strikeouts. He also has a 2-0 record with a 0.79 ERA. He will be facing the Seattle Mariners, whose offense is pretty average. It shouldn’t be a tough match-up for Salazar on Wednesday. In 35 career at bats against Salazar, the Mariners are hitting .114 with 13 strikeouts.

Cards + White Sox Eliminated From MLB Shutout Survivor 2016: ALL AL Central Teams Are Also Gone

The Cardinals were shutout 5 - 0 by NL Division rival Chicago last night (in the 1st game of a 19 game head versus head this season).  At least the RedBirds prevented them from scoring 3 runs, and completing the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor last night.  The Cards could still finish in the top 15 depending on some outcomes coming up.

The teams are putting up zeroes faster than Vegas casino’s are padding their bottom lines now.

St. Louis couldn’t handle ex teammate John Lackey. and were effectively knocked out of the contest via a 5 – 0 loss.

The Angels wiped out the White Sox for a 7 – 0 victory on Monday night.  In doing so, every club in the AL Central is now gone from MLB Shutout Survivor 2016.

Meanwhile the Padres are the squad that has been vanquished in the NL West by a Shutout so far.  Yes, and they are making up for the other clubs by taking the egg-shaped number 5 separate times already.

There are only 5 teams left in the American League, and now there are 9 clubs still alive in the NL.

I am contemplating going all the way back to 1918 – in order to figure out who won this competition every year.  That would be a lot easier than running through game scores for all of the seasons of MLB Runs Scoring Survivor.

With only 8 teams in play Monday night – there wasn’t much action in the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor.  The only note was that the Cubs didn’t capitalize on their fist chance to complete the journey.  They have another chance tonight against St.  Louis (the magic number of runs is 3).
