This article is part of our DFS KBO series.
We've still seen just one full KBO slate this week, but we did finally get close to one Friday, as just one game (Lions at Tigers) wound up getting rained out. The Twins rode a 5.2-inning relief effort from Chan Gyu Lim to an 8-1 victory over the Bears after Woo Chan Cha left with a shoulder injury after just one batter, with Hyun Soo Kim going 4-for-5 with a homer to lead the way at the plate. Elsewhere, seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings from Se Woong Park helped the Giants to a 4-2 win upset against the Heroes, while Drew Rucinski allowed just one earned run on five hits in seven innings while striking out eight to help the Dinos past the Wiz by a 3-2 score. Finally, Jeong Choi was the star of the battle of the basement-dwellers, going 3-for-3 with two homers and five RBI as the Wyverns defeated the Eagles 7-4. There's a decent chance we see yet another reduced slate Saturday, as both the Wyverns-Eagles and Lions-Tigers games appear threatened by rain as of writing.
Note: FanDuel has elected to drop its KBO contests now that MLB has returned, but DraftKings appears set to continue holding KBO contests for the rest of the year. Prices in this column from here on out will be for DraftKings only.
Dan Straily ($9,600) nearly always justifies his high price, and that should be the case again Saturday even against a decent Heroes offense which ranks fifth in
