Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/20/16

P- Clayton Kershaw (vs. Washington Nationals): $14,200. It is close to impossible not to start Kershaw every time he steps on the mound. He is averaging 30.1 points per game this season on DraftKings. He currently owns a 19-1 strikeout to walk ratio, so he should provide plenty of points every time he steps on the mound. In 155 career at bats against Kershaw, the Nationals’ offense is batting .219, with 48 strikeouts, and a .265 OBP.

 

P- Drew Smyly (vs. Cleveland Indians): In 77 career at bats against Smyly, the Indians’ offense is batting .195, with 24 strikeouts, and a .249 OBP. He struggled over the past month or so, but he dominated his last time out, in which he struck out 12 batters over seven innings.

Pittsburgh Was Finally Blanked On Friday By Jake Arrieta, But Still Win 2016 MLB Shutout Survivor

pirates

Pittsburgh has not fared very well in the last week, and they also have not scored many runs, however it still took 67 games on the season for them to suffer their first bagel in any game.

It is not a shame to be blanked by Jake Arrieta.  In fact, the last time they had not scored in a game as the 2015 NL wild card contest, where Arrieta did the feat,

Congrats to the Bucs for holding off until now.  They lasted 24 more games than their state rival Phillies did for 2nd place in this contest. 

They also marked off their 11th different scenario in MLB Runs Scoring Survivor, so they will not finish last on that either.

Seattle Mariners’ Zack Littell Emerging as a Top Pitching Prospect

The Major League Baseball draft recently concluded and another batch of young players joined the ranks of professionals. Every step along the way from when they first started playing as children has essentially weeded out those with less talent. Those who can prove themselves and hang in there have the potential of becoming a big leaguer and realizing dreams that are years in the making. Seattle Mariners pitching prospect Zack Littell still has his dream alive and well. Entering his fourth season in the organization, he is right on pace for becoming one of the lucky ones.

Zack Greinke allowed just 3 hits and 1 run over 8 innings to give Arizona a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia.

Tyler Naquin reached base 5 times, homered and drove in 4 as the Indians clobbered the White Sox 13-2.
