3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 7/5/18
Christian Yelich, OF, Milwaukee Brewers
FanDuel Price: $3,700
After posting some impressive marks as a member of the Miami Marlins, Christian Yelich took his talents to Milwaukee, and he's been impressive in his first campaign as a Brewer. This season, Yelich owns a .358 weighted on-base average (wOBA), and he's already reached double digits in both home runs (11) and steals (10).
Tonight, however, he faces Atlanta Braves rookie Max Fried, who's been very solid in his young career, especially against same-sided bats. Fried has struck out lefties 36.1% of the time, limiting them to a 26.7% hard-hit rate and 16.7% fly-ball rate through 61 batters faced.
Normally a solid option for an outfield slot, it's probably best to stay away from Yelich tonight.
