TGIF, ladies and gentlemen! We have a full 15 game slate tonight, which means an evening full of baseball! What could be better than that? With this big of a slate, there’s studs galore, but there’s also plenty of value! Continue reading for some value bats, as well as my favorite arm of the day, given the price! Let’s jump into it!

Both Sites

Andrew Benintendi , OF KC ($2,900 FD/$3,900 DK) - Benintendi is a bit higher priced on DraftKings than I would typically include here, but the matchup is simply too good. He’s hitting .323 with a .852 OPS against righties this year, and in his last 10 games overall, he’s hitting .313 (10-for-32) with two home runs, five runs scored and nine RBI. He gets to face Minnesota’s Matt Shoemaker , who has surrendered a .303 average to opposing left-handed hitters and a 1.79 HR/9 mark overall.

Eric Haase , C DET ($2,900 FD/$3,400 DK) - Haase against a lefty is something I personally love to attack. He’s hitting .292 with three home runs in 24 at-bats against southpaws, while sporting a monstrous 1.000 OPS. Also, Detroit is on the road, and Haase is hitting .391 with a 1.375 OPS in 23 road at-bats this year. Chicago’s Dallas Keuchel has a 4.53 ERA on the year, but he’s served up eight earned runs and four home runs in his last 16 innings of work.

Freddy Peralta , SP MIL ($8,700 FD/$10,400 DK) - Arizona’s offense has been hot over the past two weeks, sporting the third-best batting average in all of baseball, but for the year as a whole against righties, they are merely league average and boast a 23.9 percent strikeout rate. Peralta has at least seven strikeouts in every start this year and he’s been excellent at home this year, posting a 1.41 ERA and 46 strikeouts across six starts. He’s not cheap, coming in as the fifth-most expensive pitcher on DraftKings and sixth-most on FanDuel, but he easily could end up being the highest scoring pitcher on the slate.


Tyler O'Neill , OF STL ($3,400) - You have to love when a right-hander is on the mound against the Cardinals, because that puts O’Neill on the radar. He’s hitting .288 with a .938 OPS against righties this season, and right-handed pitchers have served up 11 of his 12 home runs on the year. Cincinnati’s Luis Castillo has struggled this year, as he’s served up an .885 OPS to right-handed hitters and he has an 8.74 ERA in five road starts this year. Ouch.

Jazz Chisholm Jr., 2B MIA ($3,200) - Chisholm has hit safely in seven of his last 10 games, and he’s posted an .842 OPS in road contests this year. Furthermore, he gets to face Pittsburgh’s Mitch Keller , who has allowed 14 earned runs in his last 18.1 innings of work and has surrendered an .888 OPS to left-handed hitters. For Keller’s big-league career, lefties have hit .312 and posted a ridiculous .914 OPS.

Josh Donaldson , 3B MIN ($3,000) - Don’t look now, but Donaldson is going on one of his patented hot streaks. He’s hit safely in five of his last six and has two three-hit performances in that span. He homered twice last night, boosting his road numbers this year to a lofty .321 average and 1.028 OPS. Kansas City’s Brad Keller has a 1.24 HR/9 mark on the year to go along with 5.68 ERA and he’s allowed opposing right-handers to post a whopping .918 OPS against him. All aboard the Minnesota righties today!


Omar Narváez , C MIL ($3,600) - Narvaez has punished right-handed pitching this year, to the tune of a .311 batting average and .861 OPS across 103 at-bats. He’s hit safely in just two of his last four games, and is in a mini slump, but his prowess against righties and Matt Peacock’s struggles against lefties (.283 BAA and .901 OPS) set up a good scenario for the Milwaukee backstop. If you don’t go with Haase on DraftKings, Narvaez might be worth the extra couple hundred bucks.

Hunter Renfroe , OF BOS ($3,500) - Renfroe has hit safely in seven straight games, while scoring a run or recording at least one RBI in every contest. He’s homered twice in that span as well. He’s been better this year against lefties, but New York’s Michael King has been more susceptible to righties (.701 OPS) than lefties (.605 OPS) thus far in 2021. We are simply riding the hot bat here.

Yonathan Daza , OF COL ($3,000) - To his credit, Frankie Montas has been quite good on the road this year, allowing a measly 2.50 ERA in three road starts this year. However, the home parks of the Astros, Rays and Twins don’t pose the same threats of Coors Field. Righties have gotten to Montas, posting an .850 OPS against the Oakland right-hander, and Daza sports a solid .303 average against righties this year. At home, Daza is a beast, as he’s hitting .368 on the year with an .862 OPS.  He should hit near the top of the order, and the pricing is a gift from DraftKings, as you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a piece of this park.
