Happy Thursday, fantasy baseball fans! It’s “getaway day” in MLB, so that means some early baseball and a smaller schedule of games for Thursday, May 12th. One of the newest ways to play daily fantasy baseball is at Underdog Fantasy, where MLB player props are the center of attention. I already have my eye on a few plays for tonight’s action with the Yankees' Aaron Judge and the Rangers' Corey Seager among the MLB DFS top plays. There are plenty of MLB player props on the Underdog board tonight, so feel free to mix and match your own with some of ours. Be sure to check out Fantasy Alarm's MLB Weather Report, MLB Daily Lineups, and MLB Daily Projections pages to find the right matchup and conditions to target for tonight's fantasy baseball slate.


MLB Underdog Player Props



OVER 1.5 Total Bases

Corey Seager seems to have broken out of his slump in a big way. He went 2-for-3 on Tuesday night with a pair of home runs and then went deep again yesterday in the ninth inning of the Rangers' loss. Tonight, he will get the platoon advantage over Royals right-hander Jonathan Heasley, who is 1-1 on the season with a 4.91 ERA and only six strikeouts in 14.2 innings.

Seager has always been a righty-crusher and has a .212 ISO/.362wOBA and 44% hard contact with 14 of his 23 home runs being against RHP going back to last season. Heasley has an xFIP of 5.90 and does not miss many bats with a low 10.2% strikeout rate. Seager is in a great spot tonight to hit his fourth home run in three games.



OVER 1.5 Total Bases

Tim Anderson has made a career smashing left-handed pitchers. In the COVID-shortened 2020 season, he slashed .449/.509/1.000 with a 1.509 OPS against LHP. In 2021, he went .319/.434/.486 with an .829 OPS vs. lefties. So far this year, his slash line is .529/.529/1.000 with a 1.529 OPS against southpaws.

Tonight, Anderson will be licking his chops as he faces lefty Luis Gil. He was called up yesterday to get a spot start since the Yankees were forced to add a sixth starter temporarily due to having to play six games in five days. He was not pitching well in AAA, giving up 19 runs on 18 hits and 12 walks in 17 innings. Take the OVER on Timmy Anderson's total bases prop tonight.
