MLB DFS Picks - Pitchers

Kyle Hendricks

  • DraftKings: $7,600
  • FanDuel: $9,600

The Cubs might be an underdog tonight, but I still like Chicago in tonight's game against the Brewers. Hendricks has a 3.91 xFIP in the last 30 days with 26.9% of strikeouts and 3.2% of walks. The strikeouts have increased in a big way and he's going to limit walks as well. Also, the Brewers are hitting 45.8% of ground balls with their projected lineup against righties and have just three players with a wOBA of above .324. Hendricks is sneaky tonight.

Yusei Kikuchi

  • DraftKings: $7,800
  • FanDuel: $7,900

Yusei Kikuchi has been racking up the strikeouts lately. In the last 30 days, Kikuchi has struck out 29.3% of plate appearances. He's also taking on an Oakland lineup that is very underwhelming against lefties. The A's have a .149 ISO, wOBA of .297, and strike out 19.9% of the time while walking just 5.8% of the time with their projected lineup against lefties in the last 30 days.

Stack the Guardians tonight. The Guardians will take on Drew Hutchison of the Tigers, who has pitched horribly as of late. In his last 38 plate appearances, he has a 7.01 xFIP with 5.3% of strikeouts. Meanwhile, Ramirez, Naylor, Reyes, and Gimenez have inflated ISO and wOBA numbers against righties in the last 30 days. That stack is going to produce tonight.

I'm loving the Cubs stack tonight as well. Jason Alexander will take the mound for a 5.73 xFIP in the last 30 days. He's only struck out 10.9% of batters and has allowed 9.1% of walks along with 26.4% of line drives in the same time frame. The Cubs are hitting 25.9% of line drives against righties as a lineup. Ian Happ has a .202 ISO with a wOBA of .383 in the last 30 days against righties. Christopher Morel has a .247 ISO with a wOBA of .372 in the last 30 days against righties. Patrick Wisdom has a lot of power potential against Alexander and Nico Hoerner has a .392 wOBA with just 8.4% of strikeouts against righties in the last 30 days.
