Here are our picks for tonights slate of MLB DFS games on DraftKings

Pitchers

Clayton Kershaw: $14,400 vs. CHC- Yes, Kershaw has a steep price but it’s Clayton Kershaw so you can pay it.  He has a 2.12 xFIP, strikes out 11 per 9 and doesn’t walk anyone.

Jon Gray: $4,300 @ PIT- Here is where we make up for buying Kershaw.  Not a great matchup but a good K guy with a very low price.

Also consider: Francisco Liriano,

Catcher

Brian McCann: $4,000- He isn’t that cheap but he is the only raw power guy tonight that won’t bust your bank.

Also consider: Jesus Montero, Wilson Ramos

1st Base

Mark Teixeira: $4,500- Tonight will be a Yankee heavy lineup.  This tends to happen when you face the worst pitcher on all the slate of games.

Prince Fielder: $4,000- Not a good matchup but you can get Fielder cheapish tonight in a very good hitters ballpark.

Also consider: Adrain Gonzalez, Ryan Zimmerman




2nd Base

Darnell Sweeney: $2,000- Available tonight for the DraftKings minimum, here is another example of how we afford Kershaw.

Anthony Rendon: $3,700- Rendon has finally been bouncing back well recently.  He is decently priced with his power showing recently.

Also consider: Kolten Wong

Shortstop

Troy Tulowitki: $4,300- Tulo is a must play for me tonight.  Tulo is great at dominating lefties and that is who he draws tonight.

Ian Desmond: $3,800- Desmond is good against lefties and is facing a decent one tonight in Conley.  Cheaper than Tulo also.

Also consider: Jhonny Peralta

3rd Base

Matt Carpenter: $3,800- Look for Carp to draw a walk or 2 tonight in put the ball in play in a good ballpark for him.

Josh Donaldson: $5,700- No explanation needed

Also consider: Todd Frazier

Outfield

Nelson Cruz: $5,600- Tonight we are going with power in the OF.  Cruz is the perfect fit for that

Jose Bautista: $5,300- If I saw power you’ve got to think JoeyBats.

Coco Crisp: $2,500- Cheap and a high upside.

Also consider: Brett Gardner, Carlos Gomez, Jayson Werth
