Trent Grisham (DK: $ 3,300 FD: $ 2,900): Our first MLB Must-Have of tonight’s slate is Trent Grisham of the Milwaukee Brewers. He will face Pedro Payano and the Texas Rangers who has struggled against lefties in the minors this year allowing a BA of .350 with a WHIP of 2.44 to go along with 3 HR in just 9 IP. Grisham hit .404 against righties in the minors this year with an OPS of 1.33 and 10 homers in just 94 at-bats. Grisham will primarily see Payano’s sinker about 35% of the time and curveball about 22% of the time. Payano’s sinker has allowed an ISO of .222 and a wOBA of .372 while his curve has allowed an ISO of .333 and a wOBA of .481. We believe at Grisham’s value and with him hitting in the leadoff spot, he must be locked into your lineups tonight!
Eddie Rosario (DK: $ 4,800 FD: $3,600): Our second Must-Have of tonight’s MLB slate is Eddie Rosario of the Minnesota Twins. Rosario will face the right-handed Adam Plutko of the Cleveland Indians. Plutko has struggled on the road with a 1.77 HR/9 allowed along with an xFIP of of 5.15. Rosario has hit righties very well this year with a .849 OPS and an ISO of .249. Plutko will throw the left-handed Rosario his fastball about 60% of the time followed by his change-up about 17% of the time. Plutko’s fastball has allowed an xISO of .226 and an xwOBA of .372 to lefties this year. Rosario has crushed fastballs around 91 mph like Plutko’s this year with a staggering .565 ISO and a .558 wOBA. He has also done very well against the change-up from righties with an ISO of .217 and a wOBA of .331. In the last 30 days against righties, Rosario has a BABIP of .327 which should play a factor tonight with Plutko’s low 11% K-rate to lefties. We believe Rosario is primed for a big night and should be another solid lock for your lineups tonight against Plutko!
