Willy Adames- SS- TB- Idea- Given his .298/.366/.470 slash line against RH pitching, Adames is underpriced in games where he will face them. With Nathan Eovaldi struggling even after spending some time in the rotation, and posting a .281/.365/.413 slash line against RH hitters, Adames looks to have a good chance to keep his solid performance against RH pitchers. Value Play- Draft Kings salary $3700
Brock Holt- 2B- BOS- Stats- Holt has gone 3-for-19 with 6 Ks in his last 6 games. This may be some late-season regression to the mean happening. Before this stretch started, Holt had a BABIP of .382. It has dropped 10 points in just those few games. With a career mark of .332, his BABIP was definitely in an extreme position. It has been a prime factor in Holt's .303 average. Don't expect him to repeat that in 2020.
Tyler Glasnow- P- TB- Hot- The Rays are being very conservative with how they are handling Glasnow after he came back from a lengthy stay on the IL. It was hoped that he would throw 4 IP in is start yesterday, but he was pulled after 3 scoreless IP. Glasnow tossed 52 pitches, 38 of them for strikes. He only allowed 2 hits and struck out 7. In 3 appearances since being activated from the IL, Glasnow has recorded 17 Ks in just 8 IP. That is a very good sign when looking forward to 2020.
Jose Abreu- 1B- CHW- Stats- At age 32, Abreu is hitting the ball harder than he has before in his career. His Hard% of 49.2%, Barrel% of 13.3%, and Exit Velocity of 92.1 are all career highs. With 33 homers, he is tied for his second highest number. This has come at the cost of some plate discipline. Abreu's Batting EYE is at 0.24, a career low. His launch angle of 10.9 is his lowest in 3 years. If he can maintain his hard hitting and adjust the launch angle higher he could have a big increase in homers in 2020.
Renato Nunez- 3B- BAL- Cold- After looking like a lock to slug 30 homers, Nunez has gone cold, with only 1 long ball since August 22. His average in that span has been a respectable .276, but only 2 of his 21 hits have been for extra bases, the aforementioned homer and a double. A BABIP of .333 in that stretch is likely what has held up his average. Nunez is not stranger to power outages. This is the 4th time this season he has gone 14 or more consecutive games without homering. In order to be useful, you need to catch Nunez on a hot streak.
