We have a less-than-attractive five-game slate for Thursday night on DraftKings. When the best pitcher on the slate is Dan Straily ($9,600), you know that it might be a long night. Straily against the high-strikeout Rays will be penciled in my lineup. And only because you need two pitchers on DraftKings, we will pair Straily with Mariners lefty Ariel Miranda ($7,700).
The Orioles' Seth Smith ($3,700) is a career .500 hitter against Kyle Kendrick in 22 at-bats. Mookie Betts ($5,300) and Xander Bogaerts ($5,000) have both enjoyed success against Ubaldo Jimenez. Freddie Freeman ($5,200) is a must-play based on BvP. Freeman is 7-for-14 with nine walks against Zack Wheeler.
