Weekend Daily Fantasy Sports Report for June 5th
Happy Friday, everyone! With the end of another week comes another chance to win some big bucks competing in DraftTeam’s $3,000 MLB High Heater contest. How sweet will your weekend be with some extra cash?
One of the best things about daily fantasy sports is that you have the convenience to play however you want to. Just sitting back watching a few games tonight and feel like making things more interesting by participating in a pool? Go for it! On a business trip, but don’t want to miss out on the action? No worries… it only take a few minutes to get your team in and give yourself a chance to win some cash!
Can we talk about the legend that Joey Gallo is building for himself? Called up to replace the injured Adrian Beltre, on Tuesday he enjoys one of the best MLB debuts you’ll ever see, going 3-for-4 with a double, a homer (see video below) and four RBI. Gallo fell a triple shy of hitting for the cycle.
The power-hitting dynamo followed that up on Wednesday by smacking a solo shot off a lefty reliever — a great sign from the left-handed hitting Gallo, who had struggled against southpaws at Double-A. On Thursday, the kid got on base twice.
Seeking pop? Look no further than this kid.
Texas is dealing with its share of injuries (add Josh Hamilton to that list now), but SP/RP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) is getting closer to a return, and he could provide a boost to a bullpen that has been taxed lately. Detwiler has been used exclusively as a starter this year after being used only as a reliever in his final season with the Nats in 2014.
Thanks to some control problems, he’s struggled to an 0-5 mark with an ugly 6.95 ERA, so perhaps the bullpen is the best place for him.
In our notes section today, we’re going to check in on a few minor league developments.
- SP Bryan Mitchell, who made his MLB debut for the Yanks last year, looks ready for another shot. On Wednesday — despite some wildness — he won his second straight start, and he’s now held opponents to a .216 BAA through 11 starts and 56 2/3 IP. Mitchell has not given up a homer this season.
- Minnesota SP Ricky Nolasco (ankle) has been put on the DL for the third time in 11 months. Tommy Milone, who was dynamite in Triple-A (4-0, 0.70 ERA in five starts with phenomenal command) has been recalled and started Thursday with less than impressive results (nine hits, four runs — two earned — in five innings with one walk and no strikeouts).
- Another minor leaguer getting the call is Detroit OFer Daniel Fields. His extra-base pop at Triple-A this year has been very impressive (15 doubles, seven triples, three homers for a .486 slugging) after he struggled so badly in his Triple-A debut in 2014.
