4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays for 8/22/16
Gary Sanchez, C, New York Yankees
FanDuel Price: $3,000
Gary Sanchez has been outstanding through 16 Major League games with the New York Yankees this season, blasting 6 home runs with 11 runs scored and 12 RBI, while sporting a 39.1% hard-hit rate. He looked good in Triple-A action this year as well, slashing .282/.339/.468 with a .361 wOBA and .187 ISO in 313 plate appearances.
He draws a great matchup tonight against the Seattle Mariners' Cody Martin, who has a 4.73 SIERA on the year, which gives him a 4.32 SIERA for his young Major League career. He didn't look great in Triple-A action this year either, allowing a 3.93 ERA through 23 games.
Sanchez has been on an absolute tear, and Cody Martin is not likely to be the pitcher who manages to slow him down.
