Daily Fantasy Baseball DFS Value Update and Lineup – April 9

Paul Goldschmidt

Baltimore Orioles (Gonzalez) at New York Yankees (Tanaka)

It should go without saying that starting a right-handed pitcher in Yankee Stadium isn’t a very good idea. They’re small samples (43 at-bats total) but there are four lefties in the Yankees lineup that have mashed Miguel Gonzalez in the past. I would also not be starting many Orioles against Tanaka until we see him bust (which is unlikely, I guess).

Those Yankees that have crushed Gonzalez in the past are as follows are all natural lefties, but I imagine we could probably sneak some switch-hitters into that as well.

Jacoby Ellsbury (OF) – $8358

Kelly Johnson (OF) – $4892

Brett Gardner (OF) – $4715

Masahiro Tanaka (SP) – $17,456
