Get set for today’s MLB DFS Pitching slate with our top FanDuel and DraftKings arms to build around on the fantasy baseball schedule.

Hey guys, I am back for the main slate we have on tap for today. If you are not already, you should be checking out the “Pitching Primer” by Thunder Dan on the days I am not covering the pitching gems. With no shortage of MLB DFS Pitching studs, you will want to pay up, but which ace has the most upside?

Don’t sweat it because I will do all of the hard work for you guys, and give everyone plenty of options to help best figure out what works best in your lineups. I am going to make this short and sweet, listing four pitchers in total.

All of these plays can be used in cash games, or GPP’s, although ownership will be very different among these guys, that does not mean they can’t be used in cash games.

I’ll also mention before we get started, you will see a variety of different statistics in this article, such as xFIP (Expected Fielding Independent Pitching), ISO (Isolated Power), K (Strikeout) rate, GB (Ground-ball) rate, FB (Fly-Ball) rate, and HC (Hard Contact).

Along with various other statistics that will focus on a player’s specific pitch-type. This allows us to isolate specific pitchers, who are not only in good match-ups but are also in good recent form.

Everything you see in this article can be found on various websites, such as  Brooks
Baseball or RotoGrinders Plate IQ. These are two of my favorite websites/tools, to use for research, and the best thing about them is they are completely free. Alright, let’s dive in!
