KBO Dongers Club - Sat June 13th
Information you should know.
Today's games at first glance had some weather concerns but as of now (5PM Eastern'ish) it looks like they will all give it a go. There is one double header as the Wiz and Lions are playing a 1:00 AM game followed up by the make-up game from Friday after that.
Here's a list of players who are nursing injuries to monitor
- Hyung Woo Choi (Tigers)
- Jung Hoo Lee (Heroes)
- Ji Hwan Oh (Twins)
Note: Roberto Ramos is now on IL
Ki Young Im (Kia Tigers - $7,600) ... My man. My man. My man. This will be his first time going up against the Wyverns this season and he's been very good against much better competition. One of the pitchers I have started to follow closely is Im and he's impressed me enough to make him my top arm on this mediocre pitching slate.
Odrisamer Despaigne (KT Wiz - $8,400) ... Not only does he draw the Lions who are banged up, shuffling their lineup around and projected to start a bunch of trashy hitters, but he also happens to be the highest strikeout arm going today when we look at long term stats. As a bonus in my mind he is coming off his lowest outing of the season after doing well prior to that, so there's strong trend in my mind for him to bounce back with a 20+ point performance today on DK.
Third pitcher to consider: Woo Chan Cha (LG Twins)
Hui Kwan Yu (Doosan Bears - $7,700) ... Not someone we can expect upside from with a very low strike-out rates, but why not pick on the team who hasn't won in weeks in the Hanwha Eagles? Unfortunately this slate doesn't give us a ton of other options to feel safe about and so this is where we see a player with limited upside still gain about 50% ownership today. Shouldn't kill you, but someone I see no value in playing in a tournament.
KIA Tigers ... If only the ballpark was better. I dont want to over emphasize batter/pitcher splits but Ho Ryung Kim has been pretty good leading off and has raked against RHP so far. Add on that Seung Won Moon struggling against RH batters this season and he should be a no brainer leading off at $3,500.
- Ho Ryung Kim (OF)
- Preston Tucker (OF)
- Ji Wan Na (OF)
- Hyung Woo Choi (1B) - Day to day.
- Seung Taek Han (C)
NC Dino's ... They get a RHP who is better than people think but ... well, he's not good enough to dominate the Dino's forever. Some guys that leap off the page for me today include Eui Ji Yang off a weak chalk spot last night and of course Sung Bum Na / Aaron Altherr who has seemingly raked every weekend this season.
- Eui Ji Yang (C)
- Sung Bum Na (OF)
- Aaron Altherr (OF)
- Eui Ji Yang - Dinos
- Seung Taek Han - Tigers
- Dong Won Park - Heroes
First Base - Not in love with this position outside of Baek Ho Kang, but he's $6,100. Needs more than just the auto HR he's gonna get.
- Baek Ho Kang - Wiz
- Yoon Seok Oh - Giants
- Min Woo Park - Dinos
- Jose Fernandez - Bears
- Suk Min Park - Dinos
- Ji Hyuk Ryu - Tigers
- Min Sung Kim - Twins
- Ha Seong Kim - Heroes ... Probably the best infielder to spend up on in my mind.
- Ji Hwan Oh - Twins - Questionable
Outfield ... This is where your hitting $ gets spent today.
- Ho Ryung Kim (OF)
- Sung Bum Na / Aaron Altherr - Dinos
- Preston Tucker - Tigers
- Kun Woo Park - Bears
Keep an eye on: Hyun Soo Kim ... Is really lost right now at the plate, but in a great spot to turn things around.
