Dream11 Fantasy NPB: Tigers at Dragons

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy NPB series.

Chunichi Dragons (5-6) vs Hanshin Tigers (2-9)

Thursday, July 2nd, 6:35 AM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Yuichiro Okano (0-1, 9.00 ERA) vs LHP Onelki Garcia (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

Game Preview

The Dragons and the Tigers sit below the .500 mark, but there is no question the Dragons enter this matchup in a better run since they are just one game below that .500 threshold, while the Tigers own one of the worst records in the league with just two wins after their first 11 contests. Onelki Garcia will start for the Tigers in this one, and while he served up five earned runs in four innings in his 2020 debut, Garcia has been a serviceable starter on the whole in his two-plus years in NPB, posting a 3.75 ERA and 215 strikeouts over 276.1 innings. The Dragons will counter with Yuichiro Okano, who allowed five earned runs off eight hits while recording six strikeouts in his season debut against the BayStars.
