Underdog Fantasy Daily Pick’Em Entry – August 23
Marcel Ozuna – Higher than 1.5 Total Bases
Marcel Ozuna has failed to get a hit just once since August 2nd. That’s three weeks with nearly a hit every game. Against the Mets, he’s been even better. He has two extra-base hits in each of the first two games of this series. He also has a good history with Mets starter Jose Quintana. He holds a .421 career batting average against him and a .632 career slugging percentage against him. All he’ll need is one double, and this hits? That’s easily one of my favorite Underdog plays for August 23.
Mackenzie Gore – Higher than 15.5 Recorded Outs
The Yankees have been so bad. They’re riding a nine-game losing streak and are having a miserable time scoring runs. In fact, they’re averaging just 2.0 a game over their last five.
Mackenzie Gore hasn’t been flawless, but he’s doing well enough to get the job done. He’s pitched six complete in two of his last three games and pitched into the seventh in one of them. All of those games were against teams hitting way better than the Yankees are, so he should have no issue getting an out in the 6th inning today, which makes this one of my favorite MLB plays for August 23.
Rafael Devers – Higher than 7.5 Fantasy Points
Devers is on fire right now and is one of my favorite MLB player picks for August 23. He’s got four extra-base hits in as many games and has gone for three or more hits in three of his last five games. He’ll face Jose Urquidy, who he’s faced 10 times in his career. In that time, he has a respectable three hits, two of which went for extra bases. I think he stays hot here and clears that 7.5 fantasy point threshold easily.
