Jesse Winker (DK: $4,200 FD: $3,300): Jesse Winker comes in underpriced tonight for his upside against RHP Jerad Eickhoff, who is allowing a massive xISO of .500 against left-handed bats so far this season. Winker has crushed righty arms, owning an xISO north of .250 and an xwOBA over .400 against them so far this season, along with having 18 homers against RHP. Eickhoff allows the most damage with his four-seam and slider (throwing them 38% and 33% of the time respectively), allowing over a .450 xISO and xwOBA with each pitch, while also allowing an xISO of .221 with the curveball. Winker has mashed four-seam fastballs this season, owning a very nice .234 xISO and .400 xwOBA, while also crushing the curveball to the tune of a .291 xISo and .440 xwOBA. This is an ideal spot for Winker, and at a cheaper price point, we believe he can be locked into your lines with confidence tonight across all formats!
Jonathan Villar (DK: $4,500 FD: $2,600): Our 2nd Must-Have on this slate comes from the same game as our first, so expect some fireworks in Cincinnati today. Villar brings the perfect combination of speed and power to the plate each night. He is currently mashing both the four-seam fastball and the slider to the tune of a .235 xISO, and a .209 xISO and has hit two homeruns a piece off those pitch types. He is a stolen base specialist, and is a threat to snag a bag each time he gets on base. Vladimir Gutierrez has really struggled with right-handed bats, allowing a .300 xISO from the right side of the plate to the four-seam fastball, which further reinforces our stance on Villar this evening.
Joey Gallo (DK: $5,500 FD: $3,900): Joey Gallo checks pretty much every box tonight on this slate. Casey Mize has been consistently smacked from the left side of the plate, allowing a .449 xISO to left-handed hitters and a .488 xwOBA as well. Gallo is hitting with tremendous power again and has really settled in at the plate over the last month. Gallo is hitting a .276 xISO to right-handed pitching. He is carrying a disgusting .376 xISO to the four-seamer, a .353 xISO to the sinker, a .483 xISO to the slider, and a .467 xISO to the cutter. Gallo is quite literally demolishing four the five pitch types that Mize throws. He makes entirely too much sense on this slate and we are locking him in with confidence!
