There are 10 games on the schedule today, but there are smaller contests for a two-game early slate. I will be focusing my research on the seven-game main slate.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for FanDuel on 5/30/2019. The picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays.

FanDuel DFS Pitchers

Chris Sale: BOS at NYY ($11,200)

Sale has always performed well against the Yankees. The lefty is 7-5 with a 1.93 ERA in 20 appearances against New York, including the postseason. The Yankees seem to be struggling against mostly all of the left-handed pitchers this season, they are only managing a .237 AVG with a .295 wOBA and .139 ISO collectively. We see Sale at a discounted price in this matchup as Fanduel takes into account the power surge of the Yankees, but I see no reason why he can't perform in this matchup.

Mike Minor: TEX vs KC ($9,200)

Minor is 3-1 with a 1.95 ERA in his last six starts, and he’s struck out 46 in his last 37 innings. He is 3-1 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in five starts at home. The Royals are one of the worst teams in the league against left-handed pitching with a .277 wOBA and .122 ISO. The Royals have a 23.9% strikeout rate against left-handed pitching as well, so we should see a high-strikeout floor for Minor in this matchup.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Steve Pearce: 1B, BOS at NYY ($2,600) 

Pearce hasn't been looking very good this season, but I will hope that the Red Sox will look past the recency bias to get him into the lineup against J.A. Happ. He must be licking his chops at the opportunity to break his slump by getting a matchup with Happ, Pearce has a .314/.419/.886 slash line and six home runs in 35 at-bats against Happ.

Max Muncy: 1B, LAD vs NYM ($3,500) 

Muncy has recorded hits in eight of his past ten games and faces a pitcher in Jason Vargas who is pitching well above his expected output. He has allowed one run in four of his past five outings, but I'm not buying it, so I think the Dodgers can take advantage of him in this matchup. Muncy has been performing well against left-handed pitching this season, recording a .360 wOBA and .276 ISO.

Miguel Sano: 3B, MIN at TB ($3,900) 

It's safe to say that Sano has no interest in going back to the minor leagues, looking like the best power-hitter on the team since being added to the mighty Twins lineup. It could also be no coincidence that the Twins offense is playing their best baseball of the season since Sano has returned on May 18th. He is leading the team with five home runs in his ten games during that span.

 

FanDuel DFS Outfielders

Hunter Pence: OF, TEX vs KC ($4,100) 

There has been considerable production from Pence over his past ten games, recording three home runs, four doubles, and hits in eight of the ten games. Jakob Junis has one quality start since May 1st, so a Texas offense that has been firing on all cylinders should be able to produce against him. Struggling pitchers=more at-bats, and with the way Pence is hitting the ball, we will want him at the plate as much as possible. Pence has a .426 wOBA against right-handed pitching on the season and is well above his career number with a 55.9% Hard Contact Rate. From my perspective, it would seem that he is enjoying his time away from the black hole for hitters at Oracle Park in his first season with the Rangers after leaving the Giants.

Ryan Braun: OF, MIL at PIT ($2,800) 

Braun has four doubles over his past three games and hits at the middle of a Brewers lineup which faces Joe Musgrove in tonight's game. Musgrove comes into this game with a 3-5 record and 4.27 ERA. Braun gives us a value bat to help fit in some of the high-priced pitching that will be crucial on this slate. This season, he boasts a .372 wOBA against right-handed pitching.

Jordan Luplow: OF, CLE at CWS ($3,100)

We need to have some exposure to the Indians on this slate as they face off against Manny Banuelos and his 7.71 ERA. Unfortunately, the Indians do not have a lot of great bats against left-handed pitching, but one of the bats we can target is Jordan Luplow. So far this season he has a .477 wOBA and 41.4% Hard Contact Rate. Hard Contact against Banuelos this season has resulted in 10 home runs allowed over 35 innings, so we will want Luplow who can hit balls hard against lefties.
