MLB DFS: Saturday Sluggersby Alex Kielar April 17, 2021 0 comments
Welcome to another edition of MLB DFS. For this Saturday in April, let’s take a look at some sluggers that you can add to your lineups. Included in these picks will be some studs and also value plays to help craft a winning lineup.
This will be for the five-game 7:05 p.m. EST slate. Let’s get into it!
All prices are from DraftKings
Eric Hosmer ($5,100)
In the Padres-Dodgers 12-inning affair last night, Hosmer went 2-for-6 with an RBI. He now has a seven-game hitting streak and it was his second straight multi-hit game. In his career against Clayton Kershaw, Hosmer has gone 9-for-27 with a homer and 4 RBI. Look for him to add to that stat line tonight.
Nick Solak ($4,800)
Solak has now had back-to-back games with a homer and has been raking of late. The pitcher he faces in Dean Kremer of the Baltimore Orioles has given up at least three runs in both of his starts, while only lasting three innings in each. Kremer also has had control issues in his young career, while Solak has made solid contact.
Jackie Bradley Jr. ($3,500)
The Brewers outfielder is currently on a six-game hitting streak and gets a favorable matchup against right-hander Trevor Cahill. Bradley Jr. hasn’t been hitting the ball extremely hard with a 42.3 percent hard-hit rate, but Cahill has surrendered a 53.8 percent hard-hit rate. The Brewers have been hitting pretty well this season, and look for Bradley Jr. to keep his hitting streak going.
