DFS KBO: Tuesday Cheat Sheet

DFS KBO: Tuesday Cheat Sheet

This article is part of our DFS KBO series.

Two weeks into the KBO season, the Dinos have pulled out to a three-game lead atop the standings, winning six straight to move to 10-1. At the tail end of the standings sit the Wyverns, who finished tied with the Bears for the best regular-season record last year. They've lost nine straight to fall to 1-10. The rest of the league's 10 teams are crammed together between 4-8 and 7-4. Power remains high through two weeks, with teams hitting 1.01 HR/9 this season after hitting 0.71 HR/9 last year. In a refreshingly familiar juiced-ball saga, the league claims that the ball is the same as last year's de-juiced version, saying that the ball was measured and meets all the required specifications, but we learned from the MLB's own recent saga that those specifications have more wiggle room than you might expect. Per The Korea Herald, exit velocity is up in the early going, though that could certainly be a result of the warmer weather that comes with a delayed season or a reflection of the fact that pitchers are more susceptible to their routines being thrown off than hitters. In any case, it's something to keep an eye on as the season progresses, as it would have an impact on whether we truly believe the likes of Dixon Machado are suddenly legitimate power hitters.
