We have 13 games on the slate for today, September 22. Today’s matchups are highlighted by Aaron Judge’s Yankees taking on the Boston Red Sox as he pursues his hot streak. Make sure to keep an eye out for a high scoring game between the Phillies and the Braves, as well as a one sided matchup when the Dodgers welcome Arizona later tonight.
Here is a selection of today’s core players you’ll want to plug in for the $7K Thu MLB Rally ($1K to 1st) (FanDuel).
|Pitcher Brandon Woodruff (MIL) $10,500|
|Shortstop Xander Bogaerts (BOS) $3,800|
|Outfielder Aaron Judge (NYY) $5,300|
Brandon Woodruff ($10,500)- Sometimes in life you get what you pay for, and Woodruff looks to be one of those cases for tonights game. Woodruff has been a bright spot in an underwhelming season for the Brew Crew with a strong 3.26 era and 1.10 WHIP. He faces a struggling Reds team in what will be one of his last few starts in the season. I like Woddruff to work deep into this one, and I like his odds at getting 8+ SO in this matchup.
Xander Bogaerts ($3,800)- While Xander has dropped off from his early season stat lines, he is still a good player and is one of the best shortstops in the American league. He faces a weak pitcher in Jameson Taillon tonight, and Xander has played well against the Yankees in his career. Look for Bogaerts to get at least one EBH tonight, and I don’t see him striking out unless the bullpen comes in early.
Aaron Judge ($5,300)- Is Aaron Judge the most expensive player non pitcher on the slate? Yes. Is Aaron Judge having the greatest hitting season the MLB has seen in over a decade? Also yes. Like Woodruff, sometimes you get what you pay for. The stats tell us Judge is gonna get at least one XBH, but I really think his chase for the triple crown lights an extra fire under him. Judge is also familiar with shaky Boston pitcher Michael Wacha. Look for a big game out of the judge tonight.
