Underdog Fantasy Daily Pick’Em Entry – September 18
Nolan Arenado – Higher than 6.5 Fantasy Points
Nolan Arenado has feasted on Monday’s starting pitcher, Freddy Peralta, over his career. In 21 at-bats, Arenado has nine hits, four of which are home runs. That comes out to a .955 slugging in the head-to-head matchup. Over his last five games, Arenado has six hits with four RBIs and three walks. I think we see a slight uptick with the favorable matchup here, and he gets to the points needed.
Ceddanne Rafaela – Higher than 0.5 Singles
There isn’t a lot going on in Boston right now. They’re on a nasty skid after closing the gap to a potential wild card spot, and they’re likely trying the patience of even the most diehard among the Fenway faithful.
However, if you’re looking for a bright spot, it might be 22-year-old Ceddanne Rafaela. In 18 games so far, he’s hitting .320 with a pair of home runs and looks like a piece for the Red Sox’s next generation. I went with the singles projection here because, while he doesn’t have one in the last two games, he did in each of the previous five. He gets a lefty-righty matchup with Jordan Montgomery on the hill, which shouldn’t hurt either.
Edward Cabrera – Lower than 3.0 Hits Allowed
The Mets aren’t really blowing anybody away at this point, but this isn’t just a fade of them. It is also a fade on Cabrera’s accuracy. In his last five starts, he’s only allowed 3+ hits in one of them. However, that’s because he’s walking nearly four batters a game in that time – including six walks in two of those starts. I’m not sure he throws the ball enough around the plate for the Mets to get that kind of action.
