Welcome into another season of Ben’s MLB Building Blocks! I believe this is my seventh season providing MLB DFS content and I couldn’t be more excited to have baseball back.  Let’s dive into our Friday starters…

  1. Tyler Glasnow
  2. Ranger Suarez
  3. Andrew Abbott
  4.  Bryan Woo
  5. Logan Webb

This is my list in order of pitchers tonight.

We have a loaded pitching slate tonight, both at the ace-level and value-tier. It appears that the value options will be very popular, Bryan Woo is projected to be the highest-owned option on the slate in his season debut against the Oakland A’s.  I’m a Woo fan, but we have no idea how long of a leash he will have in his first start so I can’t wrap my head around him at big-time ownership on a packed slate.

Glasnow will always be my top option on slates he’s going, even in a tough match-up vs the San Diego Padres. Suarez has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season bot surface and advanced stats – and matches up with the Marlins. Miami isn’t a great team, but they also don’t strike out much vs LHP so that gives the edge to Glasnow in SP1 conversations.

Andrew Abbott has had a fantastic season, and I prefer him to Woo at lower-ownership tonight. Glasnow + one of the cheaper SP’s would be my preferred build on DK.

Vinnie Pasquantino

Our old friend Vinnie has been on fire for the Royals as of late, posting four doubles and one HR over his last seven games. He, and his teammates, have a great match-up tonight against the underwhelming Griffin Canning. Canning has been horrific against left-handed hitters this season, allowing a .380 wOBA and .220 ISO in the split. We know Pasquantino has monster splits vs RHP, but he matches up well against his pitch mix as well. He’s my HR call tonight, and can be used in all formats or in a left-handed KC stack.

Jose Fermin

Fermin is the top salary saver on the board for me tonight, and will assist in spending up for Glasnow. He’s been regularly leading off for the Cardinals as of late, and is locked into that spot again. He doesn’t possess much power, but I’ll take minimum-priced lead-off hitters all day for cash game builds. He works fine as a one-off there, but I would likely avoid him in GPPs where I focus more on stacks.
