Astros | Lance McCullers mastering the curve

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 06:49:57 -0700

Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers owns the highest K/9 (11.55) in the American League among pitchers with at least 60 innings. And of his 80 strikeouts, 66 have come with his curveball.

Fantasy Tip: McCullers has 209 strikeouts through 188 innings over the first 33 starts of his career, and he projects as a solid No. 3 starter for your virtual rotation going forward. His four wins are an underwhelming total, but with the Astros rounding into contending form, McCullers stands to finish the season strong. He's a nice buy-low candidate, especially in keeper/dynasty format.

Astros | Scott Feldman to start Tuesday

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:52:11 -0700

Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman will make the spot start Tuesday, June 28, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in place of the injured SP Lance McCullers (finger).

Fantasy Tip: Feldman might be a decent low-end DFS play, as his price tag will be low and allow you to load up on high-priced offensive talent using a high-low strategy. His exposure might not be high, either, making him a nice play.
