DraftKings contributor Nick Friar joins The Sweat to give his favorite DraftKings value plays for Monday's MLB slate.
Watch the entire baseball segment below!
For pitchers, it's really important tonight. Because again, you're talking about a thin slate. Looking at Domingo German going up against the Mariners. He's $6.4K.
I know the Mariners aren't striking out much against right-handed pitching — not like the Nationals where they're stingy. (The Mariners) are 11th in K rate this month against righties. But German is coming off a seven-strikeout performance against a tough Mets team.
Most of the Seattle hitters haven't seen German. Those who have — it's like 10 plate appearances and four strikeouts, so a little promising there.
From a hitter standpoint, take his battery-mate tonight, Jose Trevino, at $3K. ... He's 5-for-12 with four doubles against Marco Gonzales. He also has a .206 ISO against left-handed pitching this season. I know he hasn't done as well against lefties of late, but Trevino is still in a good spot against Gonzales.
Nick’s Picks: Domingo German ($6,400); Jose Trevino ($3,000)
