PITCHERS

Andrew Heaney – vs. Chicago White Sox – $6,400

Analysis: Heaney hasn’t pitched well since coming off the IL, nor are his season numbers consistently good. But this play is where I will go for two reasons – price and strikeouts. While Heaney has been prone to the long ball, he has elite strikeout numbers. Against LH bats, Heaney owns an 11.37 K/9 while owning a 10.22 K/9 against RH bats. The White Sox are middle of the pack in team wOBA vs. LH pitchers but strikeout 23% of the time. Heaney allows for you to load up on bats, wait until the last game, and gives you strikeout, QS and W upside on FanDuel.
