MLB Daily Fantasy Algorithmic Picks for June 30th on DraftKings


Low Salary

  • 2B/SS – Ivan De Jesus

De Jesus is coming off a big game and while Phil Hughes is a better pitcher than Pelfrey he still tends to pitch to contact. With the speedy Billy Hamilton ahead of him De Jesus has increased potential for an RBI and plenty of bats behind him to be involved in some of the 4.2 projected runs.

  • 2B – Johnny Giavotella

Giavotella has been getting plenty of opportunities atop the Angels line up. There is tons of power behind him and he is actually hitting better against right handed pitchers (like tonight’s Ivan Nova). The Angels are projected to score 4.3 runs.

  • OF – Nolan Reimold

Reimold and the Orioles will look to shake off their poor performance from yesterday. Projected to score 4.7 runs at home in Camden yards, Reimold should see plenty of action if he stays neat the top of the order.

  • OF – Grady Sizemore

Sizemore and the Rays host the struggling Indians. They face a talented guy in Danny Salazar but Sizemore will get a LvsR match up and is slotted into the second spot in the order.

High Salary

  • 1B/3B – Chris Davis

Davis and the Orioles are porjected to score 4.7 runs in Camden Yards tonight, a hitter friendly park. Davis gets a LvsR match up and has been a consistent threat for the long ball. He has hit most of his home runs at home.

  • 1B – Joey Votto

Votto has heavily involved in the action packed game last night. Projected at 4.2 runs tonight the Reds look to continue their power surge against the Twins and Phil Hughes. Votto has tons of speed in front of him making RBIs easier while Hughes has given up more than 1 HR per game this season.

  • OF – David Peralta

Peralta is putting together a solid campaign in 2015 especially against right handed pitching. He’s batting .400 over his last 7 games and gets the bottom of the Dodgers rotation in right-handed Carlos Frias tonight. The Diamondbacks are projected to score 4.5 runs at home.

  • OF – Billy Hamilton

Run Billy run. He’s still going to be facing Kurt Suzuki who he swiped 4 bases on last night. Facing right-hander, Phil Hughes, Hamilton will have plenty more opportunities to steal as long as he can get on base. He has more stolen bases than 15 entire teams this year.

Under the Radar Player

  • C – Miguel Montero

Montero has enough pop to keep him in the heart of the Cubs order. He’s very affordable because of his hit or miss potential and tonight he faces a pitcher in Jon Niese who has been anything but dominating against lefties. He provides some upside and value if you are looking to pay up for Sale tonight.
