MLB DFS: DraftKings, FanDuel Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks (6/25/24) - Today's Top Lineups

hunter greene fantasy baseball rankings draft sleepers pitcher waiver wire

Happy Tuesday, RotoBallers! It's a busy day in baseball with all 30 teams in action. Three games start before our featured slate, so tonight's contests will have 12 games to fill our DFS lineups. It's a triple-header start on the East Coast in Boston, Cincinnati, and New York, but there is plenty of late-night West Coast action, with four games throwing their first pitch at 9:38 p.m. EDT or later.

Houston is slowly clawing its way back into the playoff picture after a rather dismal two months to begin the year. Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez have come on very strong in June, so it's time for the Astros to make their way back into the fade department if you were thinking about getting a pitcher going against the two-time World Series champions. As for the weather, the only thing DFS managers need to look out for is the wind. It may play a part in the New York, St. Louis, and Kansas City games on Tuesday's slate.

This article will provide my daily fantasy baseball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 6/25/2024 and the slate locking at 7:10 p.m. EDT. The lineup picks will range from some elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for other sports here. Monitoring injury news and today's MLB starting lineups is also essential.

 

DraftKings, FanDuel Pitchers - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Hunter Greene - RHP, CIN vs. Pirates ($8.6K DraftKings; $10.3K FanDuel)

Fantasy baseball managers are used to seeing Hunter Greene sport a strikeout rate above 30%. However, in 2024, the 24-year-old owns a career-low 26.6% K rate. The strikeout upside hasn't completely disappeared for Greene, as he's still collected 98 strikeouts in 88.2 innings, and a date with Pittsburgh should increase his DFS appeal. In June, the Pirates own the second-highest strikeout rate to right-handed pitchers (25.5%) and is a bottom-9 offense in OPS (.647) and wOBA (.287).

Bobby Miller - RHP, LAD at White Sox ($8.5K DK; $9.4K FD)

After a two-month layoff, the Dodgers didn't do Bobby Miller any favors when they deployed him on the road at Coors Field on his return. Despite five earned runs and only two strikeouts, it was encouraging to see Miller make it through 6.2 innings after such a long time on the shelf. Tuesday's contest will be a much easier matchup for the 25-year-old against the Chicago White Sox. The Dodgers righty has a 26.7% strikeout rate this year, which will play up versus a White Sox squad with the third-highest strikeout rate to RHPs this month.

Also Consider: Joe Ryan at ARI, Gerrit Cole at NYM, Seth Lugo vs. MIA, Hunter Brown vs. COL

DraftKings, FanDuel Infielders - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Michael Massey - 2B, KC vs. Yonny Chirinos ($3.5K DK; $3.0K FD)

Michael Massey (back) returned from a month-long stay on the IL with a 1-for-4 performance on Monday. When the Royals second baseman has been healthy this season, he's hit well. In 30 games, Massey has slashed .292/.304/.519 with 18 runs, 23 RBI, six doubles, and six home runs.

Royce Lewis - 3B, MIN at Brandon Pfaadt ($6.2K DK; $4.4K FD)

DFS managers have a small window here of Royce Lewis smacking the ball all over the diamond, and he's healthy while doing it. The price feels a little absurd, but the upside is endless. In his last 10 games, the Twins' former top prospect has 12 runs, eight RBI, eight extra-base hits (six home runs), and an eye-popping 1.300 OPS. In 17 June games, Lewis' .490 wOBA trails only Aaron Judge (.536) and Steven Kwan (.527).

Josh Smith - 3B/SS, TEX at Bryse Wilson ($4.0K DK; $3.1K FD)

It's taken Texas a while to permanently move Josh Smith into the top half of its lineup, but the results are phenomenal. In 11 of his last 12 starts, the Rangers infielder has hit fourth or higher. In that stretch, the 26-year-old owns a 1.224 OPS with nine runs, nine RBI, three doubles, four home runs, and a steal, averaging 11.3 DraftKings PPG. Bryse Wilson has a 5.39 xFIP this year and concedes a 48.5% hard-hit rate. The Rangers are struggling offensively this month but have a chance to bounce back with a big day in Milwaukee, and Josh Smith will be right in the middle of that production.

Also consider: Hunter Goodman, Jeimer Candelario, Ozzie Albies, Austin Riley, Francisco Lindor

 

DraftKings, FanDuel Outfielders - MLB DFS Lineup Picks

Brandon Nimmo - OF, NYM vs. Gerrit Cole ($4.6K DK; $3.3K FD)

The Mets are in their Grimace era right now, so it's hard to bet against anyone in that lineup. Jokes aside, Brandon Nimmo is putting together a fine run in another solid season for his squad. Over the last 10 games, the left-handed outfielder slashed .400/.467/.750 with 25 combined runs and RBI, seven extra-base hits (four home runs), and a steal. That puts him as the second-highest scoring outfielder on FanDuel during this stretch, and a tremendous grab for your DFS lineup on Tuesday.

Alec Burleson - OF/1B, STL vs. Reynaldo Lopez ($3.9K DK; $3.2K FD)

Alec Burleson is flying up the DFS wish list after five multi-hit efforts in his last six games. The St. Louis outfielder tends to go on these runs and is precisely the type of player you want to grab while he's in this type of form. Since June 14, Burleson is rocking a 1.086 OPS with 12 runs, nine RBI, five extra-base hits (three home runs), and three steals, averaging 15.62 FanDuel PPG. That's the seventh-highest mark for outfielders over that stretch and it makes him a great value, considering he's the 21st most expensive player in the position.

Chas McCormick - OF, HOU vs. Austin Gomber ($3.1K DK; $2.4K FD)

Four starts in the last five games should give DFS managers the confidence to select Chas McCormick in their lineups. With left-handed Austin Gomber on the mound, the Astros outfielder should keep his place in the starting lineup. It's not a particularly good spot to bat (ninth), but any cheap exposure to Houston's lineup is worth the risk. Over the last 10 games, McCormick smashed and slashed his way to a 1.014 OPS with eight runs, seven RBI, six extra-base hits (three home runs), and a steal, averaging 9.1 DK PPG. His price provides so much room to fit more studs in your lineup, especially if you are going cheaper at starting pitcher.

Also consider: Shohei Ohtani, Jarren Duran, Lane Thomas, Wyatt Langford, Ian Happ
