Daily Dime: Paying up for Matt Harvey and going cheap with hitters

Daily Dime: Paying up for Matt Harvey and going cheap with hitters

Here are 10 DFS recommendations for Wednesday’s slate on Yahoo but be sure to double-check the weather and lineups before first pitch approaches.

Matt Harvey, SP, vs. Phi (Nola), $56: He hasn’t allowed more than two runs in any of his last eight starts, including a 0.52 ERA over his last five outings, with a 33:2 K:BB ratio over 34.2 innings. The Mets are also by far the biggest favorite of the day (-250), so Harvey seems worthy of paying his price tag, especially with no obvious cheap options at SP on Wednesday.

R.A. Dickey, SP, vs. Cle (Bauer), $41: He has a 3.36 ERA and 1.13 WHIP at home this season and is backed by an offense that’s scored nearly 100 more runs than the next closest team. Toronto is -175 favorites Wednesday, yet Dickey remains moderately priced.

Yasmani Grandal, C, vs. SF (Leake), $13: He has one hit over his last 11 games, but Grandal has 15 homers over 257 at bats against right-handed pitchers this season.

Ben Paulsen, 1B, vs. Ari (Anderson), $15: He’s hitting .289/.340/.508 against RHP this year and will be playing in Coors Field.

Chris Owings, 2B, at Col (Gray), $11: Basically punting here, but Owings does have six hits (and a walk) over his past three games, and he’ll be hitting in Coors Field.

Alex Rodriguez, 3B, at Bos (Owens), $17: He has a 1.032 OPS against southpaws this season and will be playing in a terrific hitter’s park.

Wilmer Flores, SS, vs. Phi (Nola), $9: Another look at a bargain basement value after going big at starting pitching, Flores is no guarantee to be in Wednesday’s lineup, but this is a shortstop with a 51-14-58 line over just 118 games played.

Torii Hunter, OF, vs. CWS (Rodon), $11: He has the platoon advantage and is facing a pitcher in Carlos Rodon who’s allowed a 1.71 WHIP to RHB this season.

Yasmany Tomas, OF, at Col (Gray), $12: The over/under on this game is a whopping 11, as Coors Field remains by far the best hitter’s park in all of baseball. 

Michael Conforto, OF, vs. Phi (Nola), $15: The rookie has a .299/.396/.558 line against right-handed pitchers this season.
