Today's MLB Weather Outlook

No rain in the forecast for any of these games! Play ball!


DraftKings, FanDuel Pitchers - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Robbie Ray- P, SEA @ LAA ($9,500 DK, $10,300 FD)

Robbie Ray is the high-priced pitcher that has a good matchup. The Angels have the third-lowest wRC+ (82) against LHP this season. Ray has a 28% strikeout rate, a 3.50 SIERA, along with a good chance of picking up a win.

Jeffrey Springs- P, TAM @ NYY ($7,400 DK, $8,200 FD)

If looking for a spend-down, GPP pitcher, Springs is someone to look at here. He has the second-lowest SIERA on the slate at 3.20 and a strikeout rate of 26.8%. His numbers are very similar to Brandon Woodruff who is much more expensive. The downside is the Yankees have the best offense against LHP in baseball. They are in a bit of a downswing right now though overall.

Jakob Junis- P, SF vs. ARI ($6,700 DK, $7,100 FD)

If looking for a punt with minimal upside, Junis is the guy. He has a 3.78 ERA, a 3.84 SIERA, and a 21% strikeout rate. Facing a weak offense in Arizona at home is not a bad spot. He probably won't win you a tournament with his relatively low strikeout rate, but he likely won't destroy your lineup either.

DraftKings, FanDuel Infielders - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Jose Miranda 3B, MIN vs. Zack Greinke ($3,700 DK, $2,900 FD)

He has a .335 wOBA, a 119 wRC+, and a .148 ISO against RHP. He doesn't have much upside but against a 4.73 SIERA Greinke, it's a good spot.

Paul DeJong- SS, STL vs. Kyle Freeland ($4,100 DK, $2,900 FD)

DeJong has a .384 wOBA and .200 ISO against LHP this season.

Kolten Wong- 2B, MIL vs. Ryan Pepiot ($3,900 DK, $2,800 FD)

Ryan Pepiot is a good prospect but he hasn't translated it to a great MLB stint yet. He has a 5.14 SIERA, a 16.5% walk rate, and allows 1.31 HR/9. Wong is a solid all-around player that can hit a home run or steal a base, but has limited upside overall.

Albert Pujols- 1B, STL vs. Kyle Freeland ($2,200 DK, $2,300 FD)

I wrote up Albert Pujols on Sunday against Aaron Ashby and he went double-dong. His price has gone up just a couple hundred and I am back on the Pujols train as he faces a LHP in Kyle Freeland. Pujols has a .430 wOBA and a .312 ISO against LHP this season.


DraftKings, FanDuel Outfielders - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Oscar Gonzalez- OF, CLE vs. Garrett Hill ($3,600 DK, $2,700 FD)

Oscar Gonzalez has a .349 wOBA and .167 ISO against RHP this season. Garrett Hill has a 5.82 SIERA this season.

Mitch Haniger- OF, SEA vs. Jose Suarez ($3,900 DK, $3,300 FD) 

There's a limited sample size this season but Haniger in his career has a .360 wOBA and .220 ISO against LHP. Suarez has a 4.26 SIERA and allows 1.30 HR/9.

Ian Happ- OF, CHC vs. Patrick Corbin ($4,300 DK, $3,100 FD) OR
Seiya Suzuki - OF, CHC vs. Patrick Corbin ($4,500 DK, $2,900 FD)

Ian Happ has a .380 wOBA and a .151 ISO against LHP this season. Seiya Suzuki has a .319 wOBA and a .205 ISO against LHP this season. In a cash game, I'd opt for Happ with a lower floor while in a GPP I would favor Suzuki who has more home run upside.


DraftKings, FanDuel MLB DFS Stacks

Here are a few stacks I am really liking today!

  • Saint Louis Cardinals - Kyle Freeland has a 4.59 SIERA, and just a 16.4% strikeout rate. Cardinals have good splits vs. LHP.
  • Chicago Cubs - Whenever Patrick Corbin is on the mound, I want to target him.
  • Milwaukee Brewers-  Ryan Pepiot has a 16.5% walk rate!
  • Cleveland Guardians - Garrett Hill is a pitcher to target today
  • Minnesota Twins - Greinke isn't who he used to be. He has a 13.5% strikeout rate and a 4.73 SIERA
