Jose Ramirez (DK: $5,300 FD: $3,600): The Cleveland Indians will be at home tonight against the Twins and left-hander Rich Hill. Jose Ramirez is off to a fantastic start against lefties in 2020 thanks to his .300 average, three homers, 1.044 OPS, and a .400 ISO against them. Rich Hill hasn’t been himself this season as he has only been able to generate less than a 10% K-rate. In fact, Hill has only gotten 4% swings and misses against right-handers and has been hit to the tune of a .377 xwOBA. We can also tell you that Hill will pretty much only throw a curveball and four-seamer to Ramirez, and Ramirez holds down over a .210 ISO against both pitches from southpaws since 2019. Ramirez has the upside to both steal bases and hit homers tonight, so we will be locking him into all lineups and contests!
Kyle Lewis (DK: $4,200 FD: $3,700): Our next Must-Have will be stepping into the box against right-hander Chris Paddack who has some surprisingly bad advanced stats. Paddack is currently sitting at a .240 xISO against right-handed bats and will have to face Kyle Lewis who has very strong reverse-splits in 2020. Lewis is crushing right-handed pitching to the tune of a 1.078 OPS, .402 average, .207 ISO, and five homers this season. Paddack is also primarily a fastball pitcher since he throws his four-seamer 63% of the time to right-handers and Lewis currently has a hefty .403 xISO and .473 xwOBA against the pitch from righties this year. We will not be fading Lewis’ affordable upside alongside Jose Ramirez tonight!
