MLB DFS Hitting Picks for 6/19: Blasting Baltimore

Published

on

Wednesdays are always fascinating because of the games spread throughout the day and this slate is no different. We have six games during the day and 10 games at night, so we’ll try to get you some quality plays from both slates. If you have any comments or questions, reach me on Twitter @Bartilottajoel

If you’d like even more information, check out some of our premium packages

Catcher  

Wilson Ramos, NYM at ATL 

DK ($4,400)   FD ($2,700)  

Picking catchers is like pulling teeth but Ramos always makes for a solid choice. What really makes Ramos an enticing option here is that he gets to face a lefty, with the Mets catcher posting a .526 SLG and .989 OPS against southpaws since 2017. Those are elite numbers for a catcher and it looks even better when you consider the fact that Max Fried is pitching to a 7.98 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over his last three starts. Ramos is rolling right now too, hitting .338 over his last 23 games en route to a .984 OPS. 

Also Consider: Travis d’Arnaud led off against a left-hander on Tuesday and could remain a great value if he does that again against C.C. Sabathia. 

First Base  

Justin Bour, LAA at TOR 

DK ($3,800)   FD ($2,700) 

Bour got sent down to the minors early on to find his swing and recent results show that it worked wonders for his bat. In his three games since the call-up, Bour has one double, two homers and five RBI. That’s the masher that we’ve become accustomed to in recent years and he’s simply too cheap in a matchup like this. The Angels square off with Aaron Sanchez, who’s pitching to a 5.04 ERA and 1.60 WHIP this season. Facing Sanchez means that Bour gets the platoon advantage in his favor too, with the slugging first baseman accruing a .491 SLG and .839 OPS against righties in his career. 

Also Consider: If you’re willing to pay up, Pete Alonso is one of the league leaders in home runs after going 4-for-4 on Tuesday and gets the platoon advantage against Max Fried. 

Second Base 

Kike Hernandez, LAD vs. SF 

DK ($3,200)   FD ($3,000) 

Hernandez has been struggling recently but he always finds his way into the lineup against a left-hander. The reason for that is Hernandez is posting a .840 OPS against southpaws since 2017. This happens to be a lefty we really want to exploit too, with Drew Pomeranz pitching to a 6.43 ERA and 1.73 WHIP so far this season. That puts all of the Dodgers bats in play and Hernandez is one of the few guys who’s actually cheap on this roster.

Also Consider: Cavan Biggio has four homers over his last five games and gets to face a lefty.  

Third Base 

Josh Donaldson, ATL vs. NYM 

DK ($4,400)   FD ($3,200) 

Donaldson has made minced meat of lefties throughout his stellar career and now’s the time to hop on the train with his scorching-hot bat. Over his last eight games, Donaldson is 14-for-36 at the plate while providing two doubles, five homers and nine RBI. That equates to an OPS north of 1.200 and it’s clear that he’s finally recapturing some of his MVP form. Facing a left-hander should only help to keep him hot, with Donaldson posting a .382 OBP and .950 OPS against southpaws in his career. 

Also Consider: As you’ll see in our next write-up, we love the Oakland righties and that squarely puts Matt Chapman in play. 

Shortstop 

Marcus Semien, OAK vs. BAL 

DK ($4,400)   FD ($3,600) 

The shortstop position is usually plentiful with tons of great options but this slate is rather tough. That’s why we’re going to go with Semien, who happens to be the leadoff hitter for one of my favorite offenses on the slate. The reason we like the A’s is because they’re facing Josh Rogers. Yeah, I don’t know who that is either but his 8.24 career ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 8:8 K:BB rate tells us everything we need to know about yet another terrible Orioles pitcher. That’s why the A’s are projected for more than five runs and Semien should be a huge part of that atop this lineup. Getting the platoon advantage is huge too and the fact that he’s posting a 1.115 OPS over his last 13 games only adds to his intrigue. 

Also Consider: Francisco Lindor is very pricey but he’s traditionally been better against left-handed pitching and gets to face a guy who’s only made one start in the Majors.

Outfield 

Jordan Luplow, CLE at TEX 

DK ($4,500)   FD ($3,000) 

This guy isn’t getting the credit he deserves, as Luplow is simply destroying left-handed pitching this season. In fact, the righty outfielder is generating a .719 SLG and 1.111 OPS against southpaws. That’s why the Indians typically bat him cleanup against lefties and we have to love that in a hitter’s haven like Globe Life Park. We’re looking a total of 11, as Vegas anticipates this being one of the highest-scoring games of the day. Joe Palumbo is not a guy we need to worry about either, making just one start at the Major League level. 

Khris Davis, OAK vs. BAL 

DK ($4,000)   FD ($3,700) 

Let’s keep our A’s rolling. Davis is probably my favorite play on the board and it’s easy to understand why. Not only does this guy lead the league in home runs since 2016, he’s actually posting an ISO near .300 in that span. That’s absurd power and four homers over his last eight games show us that his power stroke is at full swing right now. Facing a weak lefty like Rogers is simply the icing on the cake, with KD posting a .998 OPS against southpaws so far this season. 

Eloy Jimenez, CWS at CHC 

DK ($4,100)   FD ($3,100) 

This young stud has been one of the players I’ve written about most this season and recent results show us that we’re doing something right. Over his last nine games, Jimenez has six homers and 13 RBI en route to a .420 OBP and an OPS approaching 1.400. That power stroke and plate discipline are why he was one of the most touted prospects in the minors and it was just a matter of time before we saw this stud emerge at this level. Getting to face a lefty is a big plus as well, with Jimenez posting a 1.215 OPS against southpaws at Triple-A last season. Jon Lester is struggling right now too, pitching to a 7.59 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over his six last starts. 

Also Consider: If Chris Taylor bats in the heart of the Dodgers order, he’s definitely in consideration against Pomeranz at his dirt-cheap price.

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.
