New York Mets DFS SPIN
Max Scherzer will start on Opening Day against the Marlins. Scherzer will make his seventh-career Opening Day start on Thursday afternoon opposing reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Sandy Alcantara in Miami. The 38-year-old veteran righty was unable to take the ball last year for the Mets due to injury. This certainly looks like the matchup of the day from a starting pitching standpoint.
Miami Marlins DFS SPIN
Sandy Alcantara will start on Opening Day against the Mets. Alcantara will make his fourth consecutive Opening Day start for the Marlins, surpassing Josh Beckett and Josh Johnson for the most season openers in franchise history. The dynamic 27-year-old reigning NL Cy Young Award winner will lock horns with Mets ace Max Scherzer in a highly-anticipated showdown. Get your popcorn ready, folks.
