Fanball MLB Triple Play – April 13, 2019

by • April 13, 2019

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 Saturday, April 13…

Leading Off (mid-range play): Khris Davis (OAK/OF at Adrian Sampson- $8K )
   
Very, very limited BVP here. But, we all know one thing and that is Khris (AKA KRUSH) Davis OWNS the Texas Rangers. I will very likely play him in every game this series against Texas. Oakland does have a weaker AVG v. RHP (.248)  than they do LHP (.269) but I think everyone is in play again tonight as they are on fire. Yes, it’s a little cheesy to just jump on Davis but he’s the best power-hitter in the league and is on fire. If you start your lineup with him you should be just fine…and that’s worth being cheesy for!

Batting Cleanup (stud lock): Justin Verlander (HOU/RHP at Seattle Mariners – $12,300 )
   
Hello chalk pitcher. Unless people just decide to punt pitchers, most will have Verlander as SP1. In 7 starts v. SEA, he has gone 2-1 with a 3.02 ERA and 49 Ks in 41 IP. His numbers are even better in pitcher friendly Safeco. He has 1-0 record with a 2.41 ERA and 24 Ks in 18.2 IP. While the current BVP tells us he only Ks this team at a 24% rate…we can see that Seattle has 113 Ks on the season v. RHP, second most in the league. While they have been putting up a ton of runs, they K along the way. I think we can feel safe firing up Verlander here despite the Ms hot offense.

Pinch Hitter (sleeper):  Tucker Barnhart (CIN/C vs Adam Wainwright- $3,400 )
   
It’s not a huge sample, but Barnhart has a .400 BA with 1 HR in 12 AB against Wainwright. You HAVE to roster a catcher, so you might as well go with a cheap one that has a good history against the guy he’s facing. Waino has been decent this year, but in one of his two starts he gave up 4 BB against only 3 K with 4 ER allowed in 4 IP. That was a road game in Pittsburgh; Cincy is a far worse park for a pitcher than PNC Park is.

Riding the Pine (Fade of the Day): Felix Hernandez (SEA/RHP vs Houston Astros- $9,400)
   
Just in case you thought he was still a good MLB pitcher. All the main Astros players have a career .300 BA against him and they are starting to heat up. Meanwhile, King Felix is no longer a big time pitcher and he’s coming off a bit of an injury his last start. Sure, he looked ok his first start of the season with 5.1IP/4K/1ER, but is that really what you want when you roster Felix Hernandez? This is a terrible matchup for him and don’t let the name fool you. Don’t roster him, stack against him.
