Tyler Flowers, Royals at Braves ($2,400 FD, $3,700 DK): Part of my MLB DFS Hitting Braves stack, Flowers loves to see mediocre lefties on the mound. Well guess who he sees tonight? Danny Duffy.
Matt Adams, Rockies at Nationals ($2,600 FD, $4,100 DK): Even though the Rockies pitching staff got the benefit of an unplanned day of rest after yesterday’s rainout, Adams and the rest of the Colorado bats are still in a great MLB DFS Hitting spot. Over the past four weeks, Colorado is near the bottom of every major pitching category, even away from Coors. Peter Lambert has struggled to begin his MLB career and tonight will likely not be any different.
Luis Urias, Padres at Mets ($2,400 FD, $3,000 DK): These type of choices allow for MLB DFS Hitting savings and the opportunity to use whatever pitcher you like tonight. Urias is part of the Padres plan to go with youth and Manny Machado the rest of this season and the foreseeable future. And the Padres current second base situation with Ian Kinsler and others has been plain bad offensively. Make sure Urias is in the lineup and pencil this righty in against lefty Jason Vargas.
Josh Donaldson, Royals at Braves ($3,900 FD, $4,900 DK): This guy is seeing beachballs at the plate right now and the former MVP gets a mediocre lefty in Danny Duffy. Donaldson has homered in five of his last 11 games. A MLB DFS Hitting lock.
Trea Turner, Rockies at Nationals ($4,000 FD, $4,700 DK): Part of my Nationals stack, he will be in the leadoff spot and will try to get on base and cause chaos in front of some big Nationals bats against the weak Rockies staff.
Juan Soto, Rockies at Nationals ($3,900 FD, $4,600 DK), Adam Eaton ($2,800 FD, $3,900 DK) and Ronald Acuna Jr., Royals at Braves ($4,400 FD, $5,700 DK): Completing my Nationals and Braves stacks, we have two of the best young players in the game and a second “leadoff” hitter in Eaton for MLB DFS Hitting purposes.
