ABER’s 8/9/23 MLB Breakdown

ABER's MLB Daily Fantasy Plays

What’s up, 4Deep?! Baseball is here and I’m ready to put us in the driver’s seat to hopefully take down some tournaments this year! First and foremost, baseball is the only sport that I consistently play multiple lineups. I HIGHLY recommend at least playing two lineups. Fading chalk in baseball is usually the key to taking down tournaments, but is not always the correct move. What I will be providing below is an in-depth breakdown of my top stacks of the night and I will always start with what I believe will be the chalk, followed with my favorite pitchers as well. Generally speaking, chalk is usually chalk because they are in a good spot and I will be telling you whether or not I agree with it. What I want though, is for you to understand what is chalk and then determine whether or not you want to play them! Now, let’s get to the fun part with a lot of numbers and all the pitch data you can handle! 

Chalk Stack Of The Day

Boston Red Sox vs. Jordan Lyles (RH)
Once again, we have Red Sox chalk and they make sense. They’re also extremely affordable, so it doesn’t take much for them to succeed. I’m in on the chalk and my favorites in order are Rafael Devers, Adam Duvall, Masataka Yoshida, and Jarren Duran.

Top Stacks Of The Day

Atlanta Braves vs. Quinn Priester (RH)
They’re so boring, but here we are. Everyone say a prayer for Priester and stack the Braves any way you can, per usual.

Houston Astros vs. Jack Flaherty (RH)
I’m not buying into Jack’s last start against Toronto. I’m looking for all the control issues here, which lead to some multi-run home runs. Yordan Alvarez, Kyle Tucker, Alex Bregman, and Chas McCormick are my favorites, but I’m fine with getting into the value here as well.

Top Spend Up Pitcher Of The Day

Shohei Ohtani (RH) vs. San Francisco Giants
Ohtani just separates himself from everyone else on this slate from a talent perspective and the matchup. He’s likely the highest scoring pitcher of the night, but he is expensive.

Top Mid Tier Pitcher Of The Day

Max Fried (LH) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

Top Value Pitcher Of The Day

Luis Severino (RH) vs. Chicago White Sox
