The 2020 KBO season continues with five games on Wednesday morning beginning at 4:30 a.m. ET, and there are some quality starting pitching options available in the KBO DFS player pool. NC Dinos pitcher Mike Wright has 258 innings of MLB experience and he’s looked good in his first season in the KBO with a 5-1 record while sporting a 2.77 ERA and striking out 35 over 39 innings. Wright and the Dinos will take on the Kia Tigers on Wednesday and he’ll be an undoubtedly popular option for KBO DFS lineups.
Meanwhile, fellow foreign-born pitcher Chris Flexen will take the bump for the Doosan Bears as they take on the Samsung Lions. Flexen hasn’t gotten a decision in his last four starts, but he has a 2.92 ERA this year and hasn’t given up more than three earned runs in a single start, seemingly making him a safe play in KBO DFS tournaments, cash games and 50-50s on FanDuel and DraftKings. Before locking in your KBO DFS picks for Wednesday, be sure to check out the optimal KBO DFS strategy and advice from DFS millionaire Mike McClure.

McClure’s top KBO DFS picks for June 17
One of McClure’s top KBO DFS picks for Wednesday morning is NC Dinos second baseman Min Woo Park. The 27-year-old is a contact machine who supplements his amazing bat-to-ball skills with strong plate discipline. He’s a .326 career hitter in the KBO with a whopping .407 OBP.
And even though he doesn’t have much home run power (18 career home runs in eight seasons), he does drive the ball to the gaps well with 20 doubles and five triple in four of the last six seasons. He’s also a strong runner with 175 career stolen bases.
His KBO DFS strategy also includes rostering SK Wyverns first baseman Jamie Romak, who has an .888 OPS this season. The former fourth-round pick was a journeyman minor leaguer who played in seven different organizations and only got 36 career plate appearances in the MLB. He decided to come to South Korea in 2016, spending a half-season in Japan before signing with SK in 2017.
In the three-plus seasons, Romak has 108 home runs and 288 RBI with a .281/.381/.549 slash line. He hit his sixth home run of the season on Tuesday and he now has 15 RBI in his last 13 games. He should have a solid matchup against the KT Wiz on Wednesday as they send 22-year-old Byung-wook Jo to the mound for his second career appearance and first career start.
