3 MLB FanDuel Studs to Target on 4/12/18
Jose Berrios, P, Minnesota Twins
We don't have a lot of top-end pitching or huge favorites on Thursday's five-game main slate, so Jose Berrios stands out above the crowd.
The White Sox have looked capable against righties to start the season, but Berrios has been scary in 2018. Two starts is obviously a small sample, but he has allowed only an 18.9% hard-hit rate while forcing a 37.8% soft-hit rate. His strikeout rate is also up to 25.5% while his walk rate sits at 2.0%.
The 23-year-old already showed huge improvement between 2016 and 2017, with his strikeout rate jumping from 17.4% to 22.6% and his skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) falling from 5.36 to 4.29, and he looks to be taking another step forward in 2018.
