Luis Gil Underdog Fantasy MLB Pick: Higher Than 17.5 Pitching Outs

The Yankees young righty has been impressive this season, going 5-1 with a 2.39 ERA over nine starts. His most recent outing against the White Sox saw him strikeout a career high 14 hitters. Today, he draws a matchup against the Seattle Mariners, the team that leads the league in strikeout rate against right-handed pitching.

That said, we are not looking at Gil’s strikeout projection today but instead his pitching outs. Set at 17.5 outs, Gil has finished with at least 18 outs in each of his last four starts. I’m looking for him to continue his stretch of strong pitching performances here this afternoon.




Paul Skenes Underdog Fantasy MLB Pick: Higher Than 1.5 1st Inning Strikeouts (1.5x)

How about a “Scorcher” line for today’s slate to help boost our payouts?

The Pirates rookie phenom toes the rubber for his third major league outing. In his second career start he was literally unhittable, tossing six no-hit innings while striking out 11, which included striking out the first six hitters he faced.

Skenes is an elite strikeout pitcher, and we are looking to see him continue that here this afternoon with a boosted payout on his first inning strikeout projection set at 1.5 strikeouts.

Total Multiplier - 4.5x
