For Tuesday's slate of Major League Baseball games, I'll be focusing on all of the contests (first pitch of 7:05 PM EST and later). Be sure to double-check the weather and the lineups before finalizing your roster.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 5/7/19. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too.

Today's Weather

Precipitation shouldn't be a problem at most Major League Baseball venues on Tuesday, although the rains will move in at Wrigley Field right around first pitch. The forecast calls for 30 percent precipitation, rising to 45 percent by the later innings. If they are able to squeeze in the game, the winds will be blowing in from left-center field to home plate at an 11-14 mph clip. The Giants and Rockies will also be dealing with a 30-40 percent chance of precipitation for their game at Coors Field.


DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Steven Brault - P, PIT vs. TEX ($6,700)

The Rangers head into this one with just 17 wins over their past 53 road outings, and they're just 8-20 in the past 28 on the road against left-handed starting pitchers. In addition, they're 2-5 in RHP Adrian Sampson's past seven outings, and 1-5 in the past six following a day off. That bodes well for Brault, who comes on the cheap for DFS owners. The Bucs are 4-1 in their past five outings, and they're 4-0 in the past four vs. RHP. In addition, they're 4-1 in Brault's past five home outings, and 7-3 in his past 10 starts overall. It's a favorable matchup for Brault, and his low price will allow you to squeeze in plenty of high-priced hitters.

Hector Velazquez - P BOS at BAL ($7,100)

Velazquez will make the start Tuesday at Oriole Park in place of the injured LHP David Price (elbow). The Mexican righty is 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across four starts and six relief appearances, and he has walked nine with 19 strikeouts across 19 1/3 innings. He threw a season-high 57 pitches in a start on April 15 against the O's, and the reason he didn't last longer was because he got himself into trouble with the walks. If he can avoid the free passes he should hang around long enough to qualify for a win in a favorable matchup.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

Mitch Garver - C, MIN at TOR ($4,300)

Garver has posted surprisingly good numbers, and DFS players have definitely taken notice. He'll be up against RHP Aaron Sanchez, who has a decent 3.09 ERA, but a mediocre 1.49 WHIP thanks to 22 walks over 35 innings and 30 hits allowed. Look for Garver to make some noise.

Eric Hosmer - 1B, SD vs. NYM ($4,000)

Hosmer has fired out of the chute this season with a solid .281/.329/.452 slash line, including eight doubles, five homers and 22 RBI with 19 runs scored. He should be able to add to those numbers against RHP Noah Syndergaard, who is a subpar 2-3 with a 5.02 ERA. Opponents are hitting .268 against Thor, too.

Derek Dietrich - 2B, CIN at OAK ($4,500)

Dietrich is a solid mid-tier option at the keystone against one of the worst pitchers going on Tuesday. RHP Mike Fiers has a 2-3 record with a dismal 6.81 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across eight starts over 37 innings. Dietrich has four homers and RBI during his three-game homer streak, and with Fiers on the bump, he could extend that run. Dietrich is also available to use in the outfield.

Eugenio Suarez - 3B, CIN at OAK ($4,100)

Like Dietrich above, Suarez has a very good power stroke and he is facing a poor pitcher. Suarez also has a nice mid-tier salary, making him a solid DFS option. He is hitting just .231 overall in 121 at-bats, but he has five doubles, 10 homers and 23 RBI while posting a solid .840 OPS,

Adalberto Mondesi - SS, KC at HOU ($5,100)

Mondesi cracked a homer in Monday's series opener, his fifth of the season. In just 143 at-bats, he has racked up nine doubles, six triples and the five homers with 32 RBI. He is tied for fourth in the majors in RBI, so keep striking while the iron is hot.


DraftKings DFS Outfielders

George Springer - OF, HOU vs. KC ($5,200)

If you're gonna splurge a little on a hitter, Springer is the man. He will be facing LHP Danny Duffy at 'The Juice Box', and Springer is a respectable .259 (7-for-27) with a double, three homers, seven RBI and a 1.005 OPS against southpaws this season. He has been on fire over the past seven days, going 9-for-25 (.360) with two doubles, three homers and seven RBI. Expect the good times to continue to roll.

Chris Taylor - OF, LAD vs. ATL  ($3,600)

Taylor is on fire over the past week, hitting .400 (10-for-25) with three doubles, two homers and eight RBI. He'll look to stay hot against LHP Max Fried. Taylor is hitting .289 (13-for-45) with three doubles, three homers and 10 RBI vs. LHP, and just .174 (8-for-46) with two doubles, no homers and five RBI vs. RHP. He can also be used at shortstop, too.
