DraftKings Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/6/18): MLB DFS Lineups

We have plenty of games today, but it is broken into two slates. The early slate is significantly smaller, featuring only five games. The later slate is much larger with 10 games, and that is the slate we are going to focus on here.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings on 6/6/18. 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. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @BalesSJustin.

DraftKings DFS Starting Pitchers

Eduardo Rodriguez - P, vs DET ($9,400)

Rodriguez has found success through 11 starts, posting a 6-1 record with a 3.88 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. More importantly, he has recorded a 10.7 K/9 to go along with a 1.2 HR/9. He gets a great matchup against the Detroit Tigers, who rank fourth on the slate in strikeouts per at-bat, as well. Rodriguez is a -219 favorite in a game set at 9 runs, making him one of the top options on the slate tonight.

Jose Quintana - P, vs PHI ($8,800)

Quintana has been heating up over his last 10 starts, recording a 6-3 record with a 3.76 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over that span. He has struggled a bit with a 1.4 HR/9, but he has also posted a 9.4 K/9 in those 10 starts. He gets a matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies, who lead the slate in strikeouts per at-bat, while ranking third last in team wOBA. Quintana is also a -131 favorite, but the run total is yet to be determined.


DraftKings DFS Infielders

J.T. Realmuto - C, at STL ($3,700)

Realmuto has been a dominant option this season, hitting over .300 with a 39.1% extra-base hit rate. He has also been playing well recently, recording a 45% hard-hit rate over the last 15 days. It's rare that catchers hit second in the lineup, which will give Realmuto a few extra opportunities. He's a safe option in all leagues.

Miguel Sano - 1B, vs CWS ($4,100)

Sano hasn't been playing well on paper recently, but he has scored fantasy points in nine consecutive games, including three games with 15+ fantasy points. He's a great option against left-handed pitching, posting 0.057 wOBA and 0.048 ISO against lefties. He gets a great matchup against Hector Santiago, and Sano can be used in all leagues.

Yoan Moncada - 2B, at MIN ($4,000)

Moncada is another player that has "struggled" recently, but has consistently been producing fantasy points. He gets a good matchup against Jake Odorizzi tonight, and Moncada possesses 0.107 wOBA and 0.131 ISO differentials against righties. He's surprisingly cheap, but he's a safe option that comes with tremendous upside on this slate.

Max Muncy - 3B, at PIT ($4,300)

Muncy is a powerful player that has four home runs over his last 10 games. He also has recorded 46% hard-hit and 42% fly ball rates over the last 15 days. Furthermore, Muncy features a 95 mph exit velocity over that span. He's also at his best against right-handed pitching, posting 0.195 wOBA and 0.288 ISO differentials against righties. He's a great option in all leagues.

Ehire Adrianza - SS, vs CWS ($2,800)

Adrianza is always a solid salary relief option against left-handed pitching. He possesses 0.133 wOBA and 0.092 ISO differentials against lefties. Adrianza has also been playing well recently, posting a 47% hard-hit rate and a 94 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He gets a great matchup against Hector Santiago tonight, and Adrianza can be used in all leagues.


DraftKings DFS Outfielders

Mike Trout - OF, vs KC ($6,000)

If you have the salary to play Trout, it's difficult to avoid him. He's hitting .415 with an .829 slugging percentage and a 1.284 OPS over his last 10 games. He has recorded 10 extra-base hits with nine RBIs and one steal over that span. He gets a great matchup against Ian Kennedy, and Trout makes a great option in all leagues.

Matt Joyce - OF, at TEX ($3,400)

Joyce has been struggling with an injury recently, but he is expected to draw the start tonight. He gets a good matchup against Bartolo Colon, and Joyce features 0.116 wOBA and 0.154 ISO differentials against right-handed pitching. He's expected to hit second in the A's lineup, but he's a player that's better suited for tournaments on the slate tonight.
