ABER’s MLB Daily Fantasy Plays – 9/22/23

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. Touki Toussaint (RH)

This is a tough spot for me to gauge tonight because the overall stack is definitely not great. With Duren and Casas on the IL, the Red Sox are only playing three lefties, which is where you want to attack Touki because he is quite literally lights out against righties. Even against lefties Touki is inducing more ground balls than fly balls, which prevents me from ever considering him a gas can. With all that being said, the lefties in this lineup can still do some damage and I’m fine with playing them, but I’m personally going to fade. There’s other good spots and I don’t see a reason to have to eat this especially on the righties. If you are getting into this, like I said I would focus on the lefties, Rafael Devers, Masataka Yoshida, and Alex Verdugo.

Top Stacks Of The Day

Atlanta Braves vs. Patrick Corbin (LH)

Orlando Arcia, Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, and Marcell Ozuna. 1-9 firmly in play.

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Tylor Megill (RH)

Kyle Schwarber, Bryce Harper, Nick Castellanos, and Trae Turner. 1-9 firmly in play.

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Matt Waldron (RH)

Lars Nootbaar, Jordan Walker, Paul Goldschmidt, and Wilson Contreras.

Top Spend Up Pitcher Of The Day

Pablo Lopez (RH) vs. Los Angeles Angels

Pablo is undoubtedly the safest pitcher of the night, but you are paying for it, which may prevent me from getting any exposure. The Angels are one of the worst teams in the split, with the highest K rate, so the floor and ceiling is clearly there. Pitching is really nice tonight and the discounts on the pitchers below make them extremely difficult to pass up.

Top Mid Tier Pitcher Of The Day

Chris Sale (LH) vs. Chicago White Sox

Tonight we get one of the only narratives I’ve ever believed in when it comes to baseball, and that’s how much Chris Sale hates the Chicago White Sox Organization. But, we are not just here for the narrative, which is what makes this so good. The White Sox have the fifth-highest K rate in the league and they’re bottom five overall in the split over the last 30 days. In a vacuum, I will take the discount on Pablo here, but you’re also moments away from an injury because that’s what Sale does.

Top Value Pitcher Of The Day

Sawyer Gipson-Long (RH) vs. Oakland Athletics

Concluding tonight’s list with my favorite pitcher of the night, Mr. Gipson-Long. We were all in on his last start and he answered with 11 strikeouts and 45 fantasy points. As I stated last week, the strikeouts are not a fluke and he can miss a ton of bats. Tonight he gets a bad Oakland team that is bottom five in the split with the sixth-highest K rate. I think he’s the most volatile of the three pitchers, but obviously priced the cheapest, which is what makes me like him the most.
