Jay’s DFS Starting Pitchers picks for MLB (Major League Baseball) games on Saturday, April 24, 2021
Welcome or welcome back. I’m doing straight up DFS starting pitchers picks again, this time for the MLB games on April 24. Update- All four of the picks I made yesterday not only pitched well, but all four picked up wins! #PerfectDay.
You can find all of my previous columns/picks at this link. These are just a few of my favorite SP picks overall, not counting DraftKings or Fanduel money. But I only take one of the top obvious high-priced SP’s, per column. (It’d be lame going with a few top picks I think).
Enough BS, let’s do it!
Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Picks for April 24
Gerrit Cole, Yankees
Cole has been awesome so far with a 1.82 ERA and 39 Ks w/ just 3 BBs over 24.2 INNs. He’s facing an Indians offense near the bottom of the AL in runs scored.
Marcus Stroman, Mets
Stroman is having a fantastic start to the season, 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA. He just went 8 INNs at COL giving up just 1 ER on 90 pitches. He’s pitching at home here against the Nationals, who are currently 2nd to last in MLB in runs scored.
Michael Pineda, Twins
Pineda is also having a great start, giving up just 2 ER’s in 18 INNs w/ 17 Ks & 3 BBs. He’s facing Pittsburgh, they’re offense is ok, not great.
Chris Bassitt, Athletics
Bassitt hasn’t been very good early on, w/ a 4.43 ERA, 19 Ks and 10 BBs over 22.1 INNs. But I like his chances of turning things around here against a Baltimore near the bottom of the MLB in runs scored. Over 20 career INNs against the Orioles, he’s 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA.
Wade Miley, Reds
Miley went 11 scoreless before giving up 4 ER in his last start against CLE. He has 14 Ks w/ just 3 BBs this season and has given just up 4 ERs over his last 15 INNs against the Cardinals.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
