Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks

DFS Hitting and MLB Prop Picks for 6/3: Stacking ‘Stros

Published

on

I have to be honest, this is a disappointing slate. We have only four games on the schedule. Yes, FOUR GAMES! That might end up being the shortest slate that we cover all season long and it makes for a chalky day. The one bit of good news is that we have no weather to focus in on, with all four forecasts coming out clean. 

Catcher 

Robinson Chirinos, HOU at SEA 

DK ($3,800)   FD ($3,100) 

It’s a nightmare to pick a catcher on a normal slate but there are actually a few good options here. We’re going to go with the best value on the board, as Chirinos has quietly been one of the best catchers in the Majors. In fact, Chirinos is one of the league leaders with an .845 OPS, which isn’t far off of his .808 OPS since the beginning of 2016. What we like here is that he gets the platoon advantage against Wade LeBlanc, with Chirinos posting an .889 OPS against southpaws since the beginning of 2017. 

Also Consider: Willson Contreras is the highest-priced catcher on the slate but he’s probably the best option at the position. 

First Base 

Tyler White, HOU at SEA 

DK ($2,800)   FD ($2,500) 

White really hasn’t given us much reason to use him but he has too much talent to be this cheap. We’re talking about a guy who posted an .887 OPS in well over 200 plate appearances last season and that’s pretty close to the guy we saw in the minors. In fact, White had a wOBA north of .400 at Triple-A and an ISO above .210. While we haven’t seen that potential yet this season, it’s time for him to step up with Carlos Correa, George Springer and Jose Altuve all sidelined. We also love the fact that he faces Wade LeBlanc, as that gives White the platoon advantage against a guy who’s posting a 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP so far this season. 

Also Consider: Rhys Hoskins is pricey but he has the platoon advantage against Eric Lauer.

Second Base  

Javier Baez, CHC vs. LAA 

DK ($4,800)   FD ($4,100) 

The second base selections on this slate are absolute garbage, so let’s go with a reliable Baez. Not only does Baez lead all second baseman in fantasy points per game on this particular slate, he also has one of the best matchups too. The Cubs square off against Trevor Cahill, who’s posting a 6.92 ERA and 1.37 WHIP so far this season. That’s why the Cubs have one of the highest projected team totals on the board and Baez should be a huge part of that with his .899 OPS. 

Also Consider: If Kike Hernandez returns to the leadoff spot against a left-hander, he’s definitely in play in the $3,000-range.  

Third Base 

Alex Bregman, HOU at SEA 

DK ($4,900)   FD ($4,400) 

As you can obviously tell, I love the Astros on this slate and Bregman is probably my favorite per-dollar play on the board. Any time a player with a .945 OPS and .557 SLG faces a guy with a .410 xwOBA, he’s tough to fade. That doesn’t even consider the fact that Bregman gets the platoon advantage in his favor, with the slugging third baseman posting a .950 OPS against southpaws since his call-up to the Majors. Not to mention, Bregman has 13 homers over his last 30 games.

Also Consider: Yuli Gurriel could be in the heart of the Astros order against a lefty with so many injured studs and that definitely makes him worth a shot with how cheap he is. 

Shortstop 

Jean Segura, PHI at SD 

DK ($4,500)   FD ($3,600) 

Let’s stray away from the Astros here and get a Philly bat into our build. While Philadelphia has to hit in a tough pitcher’s park like Petco, they do have a ton of potent righties to oppose Eric Lauer. Segura is definitely one of those guys, as he’s the third-highest scoring shortstop on this slate. The consistency from Segura is just incredible, with the righty shortstop posting an OPS north of .750 in four-straight seasons. That pairs with the fact that he averages over 25 steals per season year, which makes him one of the best dual threats in the game. We also love that he gets to face a lefty here, with Segura posting a 1.154 OPS against southpaws so far this season. 

Also Consider: Manny Machado has a tough matchup against Aaron Nola but remains a nice bargain south of $4,000 on both sites. 

Outfield 

Mike Trout, LAA at CHC 

DK ($5,700)   FD ($4,900) 

This play doesn’t take much explanation, as we get the best hitter in the game facing a left-hander. While Trout’s splits are pretty much even, it’s hard to argue with him facing John Lester. The Cubs lefty has allowed 16 runs and 30 baserunners over his last three starts and that spells disaster against a stud like Trout. The perennial MVP candidate is absolutely raking right now too, going 10-for-24 at the plate over his last seven games while providing seven runs scored, seven RBI, two doubles, three homers and nine walks in that span. 

Andrew McCutchen, PHI at SD 

DK ($5,400)   FD ($3,600) 

Let’s get another Phillies righty into our mix, as McCutchen has recaptured his MVP form. Over his last 16 games, Mccutchen is posting a .423 OBP while collecting six doubles, five homers, 17 runs scored and 14 RBI. It’s crystal clear that hitting atop the Phillies order has skyrocketed his fantasy value and he’s even tougher to fade against a lefty. For his career, Cutch is posting a .946 OPS against southpaws, which is more than 100 points higher than his OPS against righties. 

Kyle Schwarber, CHC vs. LAA 

DK ($4,100)   FD ($3,400) 

Like McCutchen, Schwarber has seen his value rise exponentially because he too was moved to the leadoff spot. Since May 15, Schwarber has six homers, 15 runs scored, 11 RBI and 11 walks. While his average is lacking in that span, those counting statistics has led to him becoming a dangerous fantasy option. Cahill’s ugly numbers from the Baez write-up only adds to Schwarber’s intrigue, with the slugging outfielder providing an .835 OPS and .343 OBP against right-handers throughout his career. 

Also Consider: If Mallex Smith leads off again, he’s worth a shot against Corbin Martin.  

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day 

Aaron Nola over 6.5 Strikeouts

With only four games on the schedule, we’re going with just one pick today. I’m actually 7-2 over my last nine recommendations and we’re hoping to continue that stellar form here. Our most successful picks have been strikeout-O/U’s, so we’re going back to the well here. Aaron Nola got off to a terrible start this season but recent results would indicate that his swing-and-miss stuff is back. In fact, Nola has 26 Ks over his last three starts, doing that damage in just 19.1 innings. He becomes particularly intriguing considering he faces a Padres team that ranks 26th in runs scored and 27th in K rate. Their most dangerous bats happen to be righties and that only adds to Nola’s K-upside. 

I've been playing fantasy sports since I was 12, which means I've been playing for over half of my life. I love DFS and season-long formats and have been writing for nearly a decade. I started my writing career at RotoWire and currently write for FantasyPros, Rotoballer, Razzball and DFSR. I cover NBA, MLB and NFL and follow all major sports. I generally cover primarily DFS but I also do game previews, recaps, player write-ups, injury updates etc.
