Fanball MLB Triple Play – April 1, 2019

Fanball MLB Triple Play

By Bankster DFS

Did you know that on even a ten game MLB slate, there are approximately 250 TRILLION lineup combinations you can make? To be able to hit on the 1 lineup out of those combinations is harder than winning the lottery. A reduced player pool, though, can give you a significant advantage by reducing the possible lineup combinations you can make. If we limit our choices to only 5 players per position (a few extra for OF), you now have far fewer possible lineup combinations you can make (pricing helps reduce this number even lower). Sure, it’s still a lot of lineup choices (in the millions) but it’s only .000008% of the total possible lineup combinations everyone else is working with. That is a SIGNIFICANT advantage for you if you’re choosing from a strong reduced player pool. That’s where we come in to help.

    Bankster DFS, The Home of the Reduced Player Pool, has teamed up with Fanball to give you a daily sneak peak of three of the plays we have included in our Bankster DFS reduced player pool. We aren’t lineup sellers; we write full articles that explain which players we like, why we like those players, and how we like to build our teams. We are a learning site more than anything, and you can see that in heavy member interaction on our various Slack Chat channels (we have one for every sport that we cover – NBA, AAF, NFL, NHL, MLB, EPL, PGA, MMA, CBB, WWE, sports betting, and Best Ball 10’s). You can get the rest of our reduced player pool, our daily articles, our members only slack chat, and Fanball exclusives with a Bankster DFS membership. That membership costs only $2.99/wk and you get everything mentioned above with it. You can contact me about membership on Twitter @bankster17 or sign up for service here.

Let’s look at the MLB Triple Play for Monday, April 1…

Leading Off (mid-range play): Ji-Man Choi (TB/1B vs Chad Bettis – $)
    Ji Man Choi kills righties and comes in very inexpensively today. He’s got such extreme splits that the Rays don’t even let him face lefties. Chio has 329 career AB, 302 of them have come against RHP. He only bats .242 against them, but his XBH percentage is so tasty. In those 302 AB against RHP he has 36 XBH, good for a 12% XBH percentage. Half of his career hits are XBH against righties. I like him as a one-off, pay down option at 1B.

Batting Cleanup (stud lock): Mike Trout (LAA/OF at Felix Hernandez – $)
    Brian Johnson and I talked about BvP stats and proper sample sizes this weekend on Fanball Radio (Saturday morning from 8-10am EST on Sirius 210 / XM87). We agreed that a 5 AB sample size wouldn’t cut it when quoting BvP. I don’t think today’s BvP special is one that we have to worry about with a small sample size. Mike Trout dominated Felix Hernandez with a career .373 BA and 14 XBH in 83 AB. Trout hasn’t broken out yet this year and is due for a monster, slate-breaking type of game. With pitching on the cheap today, you should have no problem paying up for Trout.

Pinch Hitter (sleeper): Matt Strahm (SD/RHP vs ARI – )
    Strahm is a converted reliever who has earned a spot in the suddenly very strong Padres starting rotation. As a reliever last year Strahm was a solid hand with more than a strikeout per inning, a 2.05 ERA, and sub-1.00 WHIP. Life as a starter is different than as a reliever, and because of this I don’t expect a 7-inning game or anything like that but 5 strong innings works if he keeps up that K per inning rate. He pitched 9 innings against the D’backs last year, giving up 3 runs and striking out 11 batters so there’s some positive history to go on here. The current Arizona roster has faced him a total of 24 times, has a .167 BA, and has struck out 38% of the time.

Riding the Pine (Fade of the Day): David Price (BOS/LHP at Oakland A’s – $)
    This is an opportunity for our Bankster DFS Double Whammy Special for today. David Price is the only “name” pitcher on this slate and he should carry a fairly large ownership in both cash and GPP contests. I think we have a chance to do some damage stacking against him with this opportunistic Oakland lineup. The current roster has had a ton of success against Price with a .263 BA, 11 XBH, and a reasonable 20.5% K-rate in 107 AB against him. On a slate where we are looking at a ton of interesting value pitching with good matchups, I don’t see the need to spend up on the one proven pitcher on the slate in a less than ideal matchup.
Don’t forget that you can access the rest of our Reduced Player Pool as a Bankster DFS member. $2.99 per week gets you access to all the content we produce for all the sports we cover, our members only Slack Chat, and exclusive Fanball bonuses.
