Ki-Young Im, P, KIA Tigers: $15,600
Im has only won one game and lost three, but that one win came against this same team when he went eight innings, striking out five while allowing just one earned run. Otherwise, he hasn’t been that good, but the Lotte Giants have been one of the worst teams in the league with poor hitting and a -17 run differential.
Preston Tucker, OF, KIA Tigers: $11,000
Tucker has hit a recent slump, but is also a quality power hitter. He has six home runs on the year and leads the KBO with 24 RBIs. He’s the only Tigers position player averaging double-digits in fantasy points. He also gets a great matchup against Se-Woong Park, who has never shown any upside and given up a .308 average to lefties so far this season.
Sun Bin Kim, SS, KIA Tigers: $7,200
Kim is top 10 in OPB (.440) and has been a tough out all season while putting up some strong upside games with multi-hit games. He missed some time due to injury, but has come on strong since his injury with two straight 10 DK points game and gets a good matchup today.
Chan Ho Park, 3B/SS, KIA Tigers: $9,000
Park has been playing well of late with 13 hits in his last ten games. The last time he faced Se-Woong Park he went 2-for-5 with two RBIs. He’s also been hitting right-handed pitching better than left-handed despite being a righy himself.
