We have a 15-game MLB DFS main slate on Tuesday, June 27th, on DraftKings and FanDuel. There are elite spend up’s everywhere considering every team in the league is on the main slate, including Shohei Ohtani, Kevin Gausman, and Framber Valdez on the mound, and Freddie Freeman, Mookie Betts and the rest of the very expensive Los Angeles Dodgers who take their talents to Coors Field today. That means we’re going to have to dumpster dive and find some very cheap options on the offensive side of things and on the mound as well. Be sure to check out all of our tools including the MLB Lineups page, MLB DFS Projections – powered by FanJections –, MLB DFS Ownership, and all of the rest of our tools HERE! Let’s dive into our favorite daily fantasy baseball value plays of the day.
MLB DFS Value Pitchers
Since his first start of the year against Texas, Bryan Woo has looked fantastic over the last three outings. He’s flashed a nine-strikeout ceiling and has been really good all around. He’s limited the Yankees, White Sox, and Angels to two-earned runs or less and has put up 17.5 DKP or more in each outing. This is a fantastic price tag on DraftKings, and the Nationals showed on Monday that it IS possible to strike them out every so often.
Williams definitely struggled in his debut, but that happens sometimes. It was literally his season debut. Williams was an elite strikeout arm at Double-A and Triple-A this year notching 81 punchouts across 60.1 innings and he didn’t miss many bats in his debut but has another chance to put up a crooked number. Kansas City has the fifth-highest K-rate against right-handed pitching on the year while ranking in the bottom three in OPS and wOBA. Williams needs to limit the walks but that’s never been something that’s caused him issues at any level.
MLB DFS Value Hitters
Most people would likely be surprised to know Josh Naylor is currently fifth in the entire league in RBI with 57 on the year. He’s very cheap on DraftKings and has a fantastic spot against Brady Singer here. Naylor has a .181 ISO and a .359 wOBA against right-handed pitching. On the flipside, Brady Singer has allowed a .231 ISO and a .382 wOBA to left-handed bats and has largely been bad from the outset of this season.
Once again, the Red Sox have sent out their lineup card and Jarren Duran is leading off. He is a few days removed from a three-stolen base game and over his last 10 outings, he’s hitting .346 with six stolen bases. He’s been really, really good and gets a good match-up against a struggling Sandy Alcantara. Duran has a .171 ISO and a .357 wOBA against right-handed pitching on the year. The Red Sox leadoff hitter should continue to thrive here.
Hays has turned it on lately as he’s hitting .337 in June, with two home runs and 11 RBI. Over the last 14 days, which is a 12-game span, he’s hitting .404 with seven multi-hit games. He faces a left-handed pitcher tonight and against southpaws on the year, he has a .233 ISO and .364 wOBA. Andrew Abbott, the starter for the Reds, has a lot of peripheral numbers suggesting a blow-up is coming. The Orioles are top-10 in the league against southpaws, too, and Abbott has allowed a 41% hard-hit rate, .190 BABIP, 4.65 SIERA, and 4.83 xFIP.
It’s been a bit of a struggle for Heyward of late, but he’s largely been great against right-handed pitching all season long and now gets to hit against a righty in Coors Field. Against righties, Heyward has a .223 ISO and .357 wOBA on the year and is basically free across the industry. His match-up against Connor Seabold is a fantastic one as Seabold’s allowed a .223 ISO and .356 wOBA to lefties on the year.
