3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Players to Avoid on 8/20/18
Homer Bailey, P, Cincinnati Reds
FanDuel Price: $5,700
Cheap pitching can often be a very attractive option as you are formulating lineups, especially in tournament formats. However, it will be very hard to roster the very affordable Homer Bailey in any scenario tonight.
Bailey has limped his way to a 1-10 record this season, including a 6.33 ERA and 4.98 skill-interactive ERA (SIERA). Those ugly marks are predicated on a 43.1% hard-hit rate and 14.9% strikeout rate.
Pitching in Miller Park won't help Bailey's cause either -- this year he has allowed a .540 slugging percentage and .371 weighted on-base average (wOBA) to lefties, and Milwaukee's home digs ranks 13th (out of 60) in home run factor by handedness in 2018.
