Aaron Judge (DK: $5,600 FD: $4,300): The New York Yankees will be in Minnesota tonight to face JA Happ and the Twins. Happ has been bad to right-handers all year, but over the last 30 days alone, he has ballooned up to a .262 xISO allowed with over a .370 xwOBA. Now is not the time to start giving up even harder contact since the Yankees and Judge love to hit a lefty and have a solid history against Happ. Judge and Happ have already squared off 14 times and Judge holds down a hefty .513 xwOBA against him with two homers and a double. Judge is also slugging lefties in 2021 for a .380 xISO and a massive .503 xwOBA. The icing on the cake in this matchup is that Happ throws his fastball over 60% of the time and Judge owns an insane .604 xISO to lefty four-seamers right now. We will not be fading the sky-high ceiling of Judge in this matchup tonight!
Kyle Tucker (DK: $3,200 FD: $3,200): One player that is far too cheap for his potential tonight is Astros’ Kyle Tucker. The Astros and Tucker will see lefty Eduardo Rodriguez who has had a rough go of it lately. Rodriguez has given up 22 runs in his last 5 outings but lefties are clipping him for a .270 xISO and a .390 xwOBA over the last 30 days. Kyle Tucker has shown off some reverse-splits across his career, but in 2021 he has hit lefties to the tune of a very impressive .333 xISO with a .425 xwOBA. We can also tell you that Rodriguez showcases lefties a sinker and four-seamer over 70% of the time and Tucker has over a .500 xwOBA to each pitch from lefties this year. Lock Tucker in alongside Judge across all lineups!
