MLB DFS Value Plays for June 4

Welcome to another beautiful Saturday during the baseball season as we hit the ground running in June. Today we have a nice nine-game MLB DFS slate at 4:05 p.m. EDT where we will try to find the best value possible. Filling your lineup with some nice cheap options will help you pay up for some of the studs of the day as well. Let’s get right into it before wasting too much time.

Make sure to bookmark our MLB DFS page for our daily lineup picks.

Value Arms

Tyler Mahle ($7,500) vs. Washington Nationals

Mahle bounced back from a tough start with a 6 2/3 inning shutout performance while striking out eight against the San Francisco Giants last week. The right-hander carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and has posted quality starts in three of his last four starts. So far this season, he has struck out 58 batters in 53 2/3 innings. While the Nationals aren’t a high strikeout team (20.5 percent), they only carry a team 95 wRC+ into today’s contest.

Triston McKenzie ($8,300) vs. Baltimore Orioles

While he is a regression candidate moving forward, McKenzie faces an Orioles lineup that ranks 20th in the majors in wRC+ against right-handers and is getting just a 4.0 implied run total. The Guardians’ young arm will give length and can rack up strikeouts. He has gone at least seven innings in three straight starts and struck out eight last time out against the Detroit Tigers. McKenzie has scored over 20 DraftKings points in back-to-back starts after giving up no more than two runs.

Other option: Roansy Contreras ($6,800)

Value in the Field

Joey Votto ($3,100) vs. Erick Fedde

Since returning from injury on May 20, Votto has been raking against right-handers, hitting .333 with .546 wOBA, 249 wRC+, .600 ISO, and 52.2 percent hard-hit rate against them. The first baseman has gone deep in back-to-back games as well. Fedde is coming off a start in which he didn’t make it out of the second inning after surrendering six runs on eight hits against the New York Mets.

Taylor Trammell ($2,100) vs. Glenn Otto

The former first-round pick has been surging since being called back up last week, getting at least one hit in four of five games. The 24-year-old has recorded nine hits over his last seven games and boasts a .489 wOBA, .350 ISO, and 236 wRC+ across just 25 plate appearances on the season. Trammell is a very cheap option and will also help you pay up for another Mariner bat in Ty France ($4,900) who has posted a .399 wOBA and 172 wRC+ against southpaws.

Andrew Benintendi ($3,800) vs. Luis Garcia

Benintendi is on a six-game hitting streak and has gone 25-for-56 (.446) since May 19. He has three multi-hit games in his last five. Garcia has gotten fairly hard with a 37.6 percent hard-hit rate and 7.5 barrel rate, the highest of his career. Meanwhile, Benintendi doesn’t hit the ball all that hard but hasn’t struck out much at a 14.4 percent strikeout rate and .369 wOBA.

Good luck with all your MLB DFS lineups.
