DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) picks for Thursday, April 15th’s MLB (Major League Baseball) games
Welcome everybody, I’m back doing straight up DFS picks for today’s MLB games. Usually I do DraftKings picks or sometimes I’ll add Fanduel, plus almost all of my previous columns/picks were for large tournaments. But these are just a few of my favorite picks overall for today’s games.
I did one of these for the first time yesterday, you can check out those picks here if you’re interested.
Alright, let’s do this!
Fantasy Sports Picks for April 15th
Lance Lynn, White Sox SP
Lynn has been incredible early on, picking up a shutout in his first game. He’s given up 0 ER’s in 13.2 INN’s with 17 K’s and 2 BB’s so far this year. He’s 3-1 with a 1.04 ERA in four career starts against the Indians.
Michael Pineda, Twins SP
Pineda has been great thru 2 starts, giving up just 2 ER’s with 11 K’s and 2 BB’s in 11 INN’s. This is a high risk tourney play considering he’s facing the Red Sox, who are near the top of the league in runs scored. Pineda has a solid career ERA of 4.00 against them in 72 INN’s.
Marcus Semien, Blue Jays 2B
Semien has 4 HR’s and 2 SB’s already this year, averaging 9 DK FPPG. He’s 5-12 with 1 HR and a triple against opposing SP Jake Junis.
Josh Donaldson, Twins 3B
Donaldson only has 3 AB’s (2 hits) this season after just coming off the DL. He’s 9-27 with 4 doubles career vs opposing SP Garrett Richards.
Nelson Cruz, Twins OF
Cruz is batting .448 with 4 HR’s and 10 RBI’s already this year.
Michael Conforto, Mets OF
Conforto has been struggling early on but he has 3 HR’s, 2 doubles and 2 SB’s in 26 career AB’s against opposing SP Zach Efflin. This one is a tourney play.
Disclaimer Thing- I’m no expert, I’m not even a writer. But I enjoy doing these and sometimes I get things right.
