Clevinger has been enjoying an elite season, posting a 10-7 record with a 3.17 ERA through 27 starts. He has also posted a K/9 north of 9.0 through 170.1 innings. Clevinger gets a great matchup against the Kansas City Royals, who have struggled offensively this season. Through three starts against Kansas City, Clevinger features a 1-0 record with a 2.57 ERA. He's a -212 favorite in a game set at 8.5 runs, as well.

LeBlanc has quietly thrown at a high level this season. Through 27 games (22 starts), he owns an 8-3 record with a 3.72 ERA. He also features a 7.2 K/9 this season. LeBlanc gets a great matchup against the Baltimore Orioles, who lack offensive firepower. He's a -190 favorite in a game set at 8.5 runs, while throwing in a pitcher friendly stadium.

 

FanDuel DFS Infielders

Joey Votto - C/1B, at PIT ($3,500)

Votto has performed well in his five games since returning to the Cincinnati Reds lineup. In those games, he owns 45% hard-hit and fly ball rates with a 99 mph exit velocity. He gets a matchup against Joe Musgrove tonight, and Votto is a more consistent and a more powerful option against right-handed pitching. Overall, he owns 0.08 wOBA and 0.065 ISO differentials against righties.

Robinson Cano - 2B, vs BAL ($3,700)

Cano continues to make an interesting option as he gets back in the game form. He's hitting .233 with three extra-base hits and four RBIs over his last 10 games. He has also posted a 42% hard-hit rate with a 94 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days. He gets a great matchup against Alex Cobb tonight, as well.

Justin Turner - 3B, vs NYM ($3,700)

Turner is an option that can always be considered against left-handed pitching. In 2018, he owns a .598 slugging percentage and a .241 ISO against lefties. He possesses 52% hard-hit and fly ball rates with a 96 mph exit velocity over the last 15 days, as well. Turner is also hitting .378 with a .676 slugging percentage and a 1.165 OPS over his last 10 games.

Tim Anderson - SS, vs DET ($3,000)
