We’re almost halfway through the second week of the 2020 KBO season. The SK Wyverns and LG Twins will face off Thursday on ESPN2 at 5:30 a.m. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the matchup here. You can play at DraftKings.

Captain’s Picks

Hyun Soo Kim, OF, LG Twins: $15,300

Kim has price has gone up for good reason. He’s yet to go hitless in a KBO game this season and is batting .484 with one home run and nine RBIs. He’s riding a streak of three multi-hit games, tallied at least one extra-base hit in each of his last two outings. Jong Hoon Park doesn’t strike out many batters, which bodes well for the Twins slugger.

Tyler Wilson, SP, LG Twins: $14,100

Some might stray away from Wilson because of his poor -6.9 DKFP average, but this isn’t indicative of his skill. The former Baltimore Orioles pitcher got pounded by the NC Dinos in his debut but should benefit from playing against one of the least productive offenses in the league. The Wyverns have scored the least runs (22) in the league and have the second fewest hits (51). Look for Wilson to bounce back.

Utility Picks

Jamie Romak, 1B/OF, SK Wyverns: $10,400

Romak’s numbers don’t jump off the page, but he hasn’t recorded less than 29 home runs in the KBO since he entered the league in 2017. The Canadian just needs to find his rhythm. When he does, he can put together some impressive stat lines.

Roberto Ramos, OF, LG Twins: $6,200

Ramos has hit a nice stride. He’s tallied a hit in every game this season and eclipsed double-digits in DKFP for four straight games. He’s batting .407 with three home runs and six RBIs. He’s also been walked four times this season. Getting on base without having to blast the ball deep can also be valuable. He’s cheap but has one of the higher ceilings in the contest.
