Four afternoon matchups will set baseball fans up for a long day of MLB action. 13 games serve as the warmup acts for the final showdown of the night, as the Dodgers host the Padres. Check out our DFS picks for the fun day ahead.
*All dollar values according to DraftKings as of 5/15/19
Domingo German, NYY vs BAL, $9,500
The 26-year-old righty has been nearly unhittable all season long on the mound. Domingo Santana heads into today’s bout with the Baltimore Orioles sporting a 7-1 record and 2.70 ERA. After two postponed contests, it looks like these two teams will finely square off from New York. To clear up any confusion, German is scheduled to pitch in the latter half of today’s doubleheader.
J.T. Realmuto, PHI vs MIL, $4,200
Game three of the Phillies-Brewers’ three-game set should be an entertaining one, to say the least. The two squads have split the games so far. In Philly’s win over Milwaukee Monday, it was J.T. Realmuto who had a big day at the plate. The catcher went 2-for-3, driving in a run, scoring twice himself, and acquiring one free pass to first base.
Freddie Freeman, ATL vs STL, $4,800
Sure, Cody Bellinger may be taking the diamond today, but his giant price tag ($5,600) makes Freddie Freeman the obvious choice for anyone seeking value. The Braves star ranks inside the top ten in nearly every important batting statistic, among first basemen. He’s hitting .304, with seven homers and 23 RBIs and walks. Those 23 free passes rank third among all NL first basemen this season.
Max Muncy, LAD vs SD, $4,500
If you can’t fit Bellinger in your lineup, Max Muncy is your next-best option on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Batting in the fifth spot tonight, behind Bellinger and David Freese, Muncy should get a lot of good looks. He’s only batting .259, but his 28 RBIs are second to only Adalberto Mondesi, among players at his position.
Carlos Correa, HOU @ DET, $4,800
It’s no secret the Houston Astros’ lineup is loaded. Shortstop Carlos Correa is no exception. The 24-year-old has been on fire during this current series against the Detroit Tigers. In yesterday’s 11-4 win, Correa recorded two hits, a homer, triple and three RBIs. Correa hit a triple in game one as well. Houston has already scored 19 runs in two games.
Matt Carpenter, STL @ ATL, $3,800
By all accounts, Matt Carpenter has a had a rough start to the year at the plate. But, finally, the 33-year-old is showing signs of life. Tuesday’s 14-3 win over the Atlanta Braves was the sort of breakout performance that could propel Carpenter back to his usual levels. He walked, recorded a hit, double and an RBI. Can he follow that up with another big game tonight?
Christian Yelich, MIL @ PHI, $5,700
This guy has had anything but a rough start to the year. The reigning NL MVP and early candidate to repeat, Christian Yelich, is tied for the MLB lead with 16 homers on the season. His 38 RBIs trail only Bellinger, George Springer and Josh Bell. Keep in mind that Yelich has 30 less at-bats than Springer. His .328 BA is in the top ten as well, plus three batters ahead of him have stepped up to the dish less. Springer is the most expensive outfielder in daily fantasy tonight, followed by Yelich.
Other outfielders to consider: Juan Soto, WSH vs NYM ($4,500), Joey Gallo, TEX @ KC ($5,400)
