WSH Nationals Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Possible batting order, changes day to day anyway.

Be sure to visit the main hub for each slate on draftkings and fandeul visiting my MLB DFS Picks Today page.

  1. Adam Eaton: 2010 Draft round 19 pick 6 of Ariz.

I like his numbers as they are reverting back to 15, 16, and 17′ season. Has speed and can get on base. Can do it vs. Lefties as well even though he is a lefty the numbers don’t change. Base stealing better vs. R’s of course. Gets on base .360+ runner and good fielder.

2. Trea Turner: 2014 draft round 1 pick 13 of SD

Had his best hitting season since 16′, as his caliber of player stealing bases as a righty in this lineup is always playable in DFS at the right price. Spring speed maybe best in the league with power for a small lengthy guy at 6’2″. Has green light to steal 3rd creating 10 FP easily. The mindset of possibly in 3 hole instead, shaking this LU up.

3. Juan Soto: Free agent signed to Nats in 2015

Elite at getting on base, SLG, ISO, and nice speed. Can walk with the best of them already, as he should get even better. He is in range with the best hitters in game with 51 barrels. 20% SO rage is fine.

4. Victor Robles: 2014 Free agent with Nats

Got a full season in as a bit more of a ground ball hitter, displaying good speed and base stealing skills. He might be able to improve his power this year. If not he’ll hope to get on base and walk better. Great upside. 23 years old. Great Power/speed potential.

Also having Starline Castro as an option. Decent hitter.

5. Howie Kendrick: 2002 draft round 10 pick 12 of Angels

The savvy veteran jumped up his ISO with the same Bapip. I couldn’t believe his STAT Cast numbers jumping off the screen in X SLG, Xwoba, Hard contact, and SO% along with Velocity. There is no way to go but down.

6. Carter Kieboom : 2016 draft round 1 pick 28 of Nats

Looks like they think he can be a Trau Turner some day, as he would have to develop a lot more power to go along with his potential base steals. Was not a high draft pick but a first rounder several years ago. Not much opportunity. Was a top 10 prospect.

7. A mix of Wilmer Difo, Kurt Suzuki, and Michael Taylor look to try to get on base, and/or pop up a HR every now and then.

8. Swing Option: Eric Thams, looking to hit 5th. Trying to get him in every day.

Astubrel Cabrera. Depding on the split can also use him in DFS. Trying to get the 5th 6th spots in LU here.

9. Yan Gomes: 2009 draft round 10 pick 19 The Catcher had some batting average numbers a lot better vs. Lefties then righties. That’s where he has his power as well at .217 ISO.

DH: Depending on the MU a few guys to use such as

P1: Max Scherzer: 2006 draft round 1 pick 11 of Ariz.

lowest numbers of recent career. Missed a few starts, needs to stay healthy. perrenial Cy young Ace. Hitting upside. still on top of his game. Gave up a couple HR’s vs. the Phillies incl. B. Harper, but lots of swinging strikes, nasty stuff!

P2: Stephen Strausberg: 2009 draft round 1 pick 1 overall of Nats

Healthy world series MVP season. Top 12 Ace in league. injuries have plagued him.

P3:Patrick Corbin: 2009 draft round 2 pick 31 of Angels

The Lefty I recall got really good and consistent with SO upside in the latter half of year. Good K/BB rate at 3.4 despite his SO% down and walks up from 2018 when he had a 5.13 K/BB rate. Expected to be fully stretched out for July 26th start against Yanks at home.

P4: Anibal Sanchez

P5: Erick Fedde
