Cincinnati Reds DFS Notes
Luis Castillo recorded seven strikeouts over seven innings on Thursday in a win over the Marlins. Castillo carried a shutout into the fourth inning before giving up a two-out RBI single to Jorge Alfaro, which represented the lone tally against him across seven stellar frames. He induced 15 swinging strikes and finished with a respectable 29 percent CSW (called strikes plus whiffs). It was a nice bounce-back effort for the 28-year-old righty after a bit of a rough patch in which he coughed up six home runs over his last four starts since July 29. He'll carry a solid 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 145/60 K/BB ratio across 144 2/3 innings (26 starts) into a road tilt against the division-rival Brewers on Wednesday evening.
Milwaukee Brewers DFS Notes
Brandon Woodruff was shelled for a season-high six runs over five innings on Thursday in a loss to the Cardinals. Woodruff served up an RBI double to Nolan Arenado in the opening frame, but kept the Cardinals off the scoreboard until an epic meltdown in the fifth inning. He gave up five runs on four consecutive hits, including a back-to-back homers to Tyler O'Neill and Lars Nootbaar, with two outs in the disastrous frame. He notched four strikeouts and only issued one walk. The hard-throwing 28-year-old righty has been one of the premier starters in the National League this season, allowing three earned runs or fewer in 21 of 24 starts. He'll carry a sparkling 2.48 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 167/37 K/BB ratio across 145 1/3 innings (24 starts) into a home matchup against the Reds on Wednesday night.
