5 Daily Fantasy Baseball Value Plays for 8/10/18
Daniel Descalso, 2B, Arizona Diamondbacks
In 2018, Daniel Descalso is having the best year of his career from the dish. His .358 wOBA and .195 ISO are both career-highs, and that's coming on career-best marks in both hard-hit (41.1%) and fly-ball (45.3%) rate.
Those improvements are over a significant sample (323 plate appearances), and his change in batted-ball profile actually dates back to 2017, when his 37.0% hard-hit rate and 43.2% fly-ball rate both established new carer-highs by big margins.
The Diamondbacks' offense is in a plus spot tonight as well, taking on Cincinnati Reds righty Anthony DeSclafani, who has struggled to the tune of a career-worst 4.40 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA) over 11 Major League starts this year. And the 44.8% hard-hit and 41.0% fly-ball rates he has allowed are both career-highs.
