The Korea Baseball Organization has a five-game slate for Wednesday, and DraftKings will have its usual group of classic contests available for the action. We go over the top plays at each position ahead for the first classic slate of the week, and you can set your lineup here.
Pitcher: Eric Jokisch, Kiwoom Heroes ($9,700)
Jokisch had a modest performance in his last start against the Eagles but is still among the league leaders in ERA (1..49) and WHIP (.94). He’s still undefeated this year at 5-0 and remains one of the players most likely yo notch a win on Wednesday.
Catcher: Eui Ji Yang, NC Dinos ($5,700)
Yang’s five RBIs on Tuesday brought his season total to 28, and he’s tallied hits in nine of his last 10 games. His RBI potential could be bolstered by Jin Sung Kang batting cleanup.
First Base: Roberto Ramos, LG Twins ($4,700)
Ramos is still probably cheaper than what he’s worth and has consistently hit at a high level whether he hits home runs or not. Tae Hoon Kim has one of the higher ERAs (4.94) in the slate and doesn’t strike many batters out. If he pitches to contact Ramos could have a big game.
Second Base: Keon Chang Seo, Kiwoom Heroes ($3,800)
Seo is only second to Jose Fernandez in DKFP per game at second base, but is significantly cheaper. The Heroes’ leadoff hitter has a solid OBP (.415) and could perform at a high level against below average pitching.
Shortstop: Ha Seong Kim, Kiwoom Heroes ($6,200)
Jun Hyun Baek doesn’t have a large body of work to draw from this season, but his sky-high 10.29 ERA is something to take note of. Kim is riding a nine-game hitting streak and is hitting .375 during that stretch, so I’d say he’s worth paying up for.
Third Base: Sang Su Kim, Samsung Lions ($4,600)
Kim’s matchup against Jokisch isn’t ideal, but only two players can top his .444 OBP. He’s one of the more efficient leadoff man in the KBO and his priced has dropped after tallying 16 DKFP in his last outing.
Outfield: Preston Tucker, KIA Tigers ($5,800)
Tucker has spurts here and there, and I like the slugger’s odds against one of the weakest pitchers in the slate. Min Kim has recorded more than three strikeouts in a game once this season and has a 7.83 ERA. You’ll have to pay up for him, but I think he has a good chance to go yard and rack up some RBIs.
Outfield: Jin Sung Kang, NC Dinos ($4,000)
Kang is the chalkiest position player in the slate, and it wouldn’t be surprising if more than half Wednesday’s entires feature him. He bumped Yang from the cleanup spot, leads the league in batting average (.458) and has cracked double-digits in DKFP for four straight games.
