Catcher – Gary Sanchez vs. David Price
FanDuel: $4,100 DraftKings: $5,400
The Yankees’ catcher has a .310 ISO versus left-handed pitchers in 2019. Sanchez will take on Price, who he has owned in the past. Sanchez is 6-for-13 with five home runs in his career against the Boston starter. Sanchez should take advantage and keep crushing southpaws in this one.
Wilson Ramos (FanDuel: $2,700)
Wellington Castillo (DraftKings: $3,000)
First Base – Daniel Murphy vs. Aaron Sanchez
FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,900
Murphy has a .400/.478/.500 slash line against groundball pitchers this season. With the Toronto Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez owning a slate high 51.2% groundball rate look for Murphy to shine on Sunday.
Eric Thames (FanDuel: $2,500)
Kendrys Morales (DraftKings: $2,700)
Second Base – Ketel Marte vs. Steven Matz
FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,400
The Diamondbacks’ Marte has a .313 ISO, a .542 wOBA and a 241 wRC+ versus left-handed pitching in 2019. Look for those numbers to jump up after this meeting with Steven Matz. The southpaw is allowing a 44.1% hard contact rate and 1.82 HR/9 against right-handed batters this season.
Cavan Biggio (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,000)
Nick Lopez (FanDuel: $2,700 DraftKings:$3,500)
Third Base – Nolan Arenado vs. Aaron Sanchez
FanDuel: $4,800 DraftKings: $5,800
The Rockies’ third baseman at is always tough to pass up at home and the same holds true today. He has a .235 ISO versus right-handed pitching in 2019. Arenado has a .280 ISO at home. And finally, he faces the Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez, who as mentioned earlier, is an extreme groundball pitcher. Well, Arenado has a .343/.410/.571 slash line against groundball pitchers this season.
Pablo Sandoval (FanDuel: $2,400)
Jeimer Candelario (DraftKings: $2,700)
Shortstop –Trevor Story vs. Aaron Sanchez
FanDuel: $4,600 DraftKings: $5,900
Trevor Stroy is running pure right now. In his last seven contests, he owns a .444 ISO, .561 wOBA and a 240 wRC+. For good measure, he has even added in two stolen bases. Never walk away from a heater. Instead, trust this Story has a good finish on Sunday.
Trea Turner (DraftKings: $4,600)
Brandon Crawford (FanDuel: $2,500)
Outfield – Christian Yelich vs. Jordan Lyles
FanDuel: $4,700 DraftKings: $5,600
Christian Yelich continues to put up video game-like numbers against right-handed pitching. He has a .449 ISO and a .484 wRC+ against righties this season. With the Pirates’ Lyles struggling with lefties this year, Yelich should get into a couple here.
Outfield – Mookie Betts vs. C.C. Sabathia
FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,000
Mookie has done well against C.C. Sabathia in the past. In their career matchups, Betts owns a 1.050 OPS against the Yankees’ starter. With Sabathia allowing a .345 wOBA, 2.43 HR/9 and a 44% hard contact rate to righties, the Red Sox’s outfielder is in a spot to build on those numbers.
Outfield – Mike Trout vs. Marco Gonzales
FanDuel: $4,800 Draftkings: $5,400
Anytime you can get the best player in baseball in your DFS lineup, it is probably a good idea. Trout is in a great spot to succeed in this one. Against lefties this year, Trout has a .305 ISO and a .409 wOBA.
Randal Grichuk (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,200)
Derek Fisher (FanDuel: $2,200)
Christin Stewart (FanDuel: $2,600 DraftKings: $3,200)
When you have a game in Coors Field, you always try to cram in Rockies’ bats into your DFS lineups. Today is no different especially with the Blue Jays’ Aaron Sanchez on the bump. The Blue Jays’ right-hander has a 4.99 SIERA and a 5.33 SIERA in 2019. Now he will pitch in Colorado ‘s thin air. Things surely are set up for the Rockies’ offense to succeed at home on Sunday.
Toronto Blue Jays:
Antonio Senzatela could be in for a long one here. The Rockies’ starter has a 5.81 ERA and the peripherals don’t suggest there will be improvements any time soon. Senzatela owns a 4.95 xFIP and a 5.35 SIERA this season. And he is not missing many bats these days as he has a low 15.98% whiff rate. Senzatela should be in trouble early and often here so stack up all the Blue Jays that you can.
The Royals’ Brad Keller is a guy we want to attack today. He has the highest SIERA of the starters for MLB’s Sunday action. But equally important is the fact that the Rangers have crushed right-handed pitching all season. The Rangers have a .213 ISO against righties.
Kansas City Royals:
The Rangers’ Adrian Sampson has a 46.9% hard contact rate this season, but he is also allowing a 40.2% flyball rate. This should play into the hands of the Royals’ batters, especially the right-handed ones. Sampson is allowing .393 wOBA, 45.4% hard contact rate and a 1.88 HR/9 to right-handed bats this season.
Besides Cody Bellinger, all other Dodgers’ batters are grossly underpriced, particularly on FanDuel. With the Phillies starting Nick Pivetta, the Dodgers’ stack not only allows you to pay up for some other of the big bats but they are also in a position to do some damage themselves. Los Angeles has a .216 ISO versus right-handed pitching in 2019. Pay particular attention to the Dodgers’ lefties as Pivetta is allowing a .457 wOBA to them this season.
