DraftKings and FanDuel Spotlight Hitters, Saturday 6/2

Jake Hari



MLB DFS Picks DraftKings FanDuel Lineups Home Runs Optimal Leverage Stacks

The following Spotlight Hitters were selected by writer Jake Hari. For more analysis on the slate, check out the MLB Strategy Video and Night Shift Podcast.

Eugenio Suarez ($5,000 DK/$3,700 FD)

Suarez has arguably been the best hitter in the MLB against southpaws this season, posting a .429 ISO, 64.3% hard-contact, and .565 OBP against them. The price is at a point where he should be low-owned because we know Petco Park is not hitter-friendly, but Suarez has huge power and should have no problem making solid contact with Eric Lauer, who allows 43% hard-contact to righties. As a pay up to be contrarian play, I love Suarez in GPPs if you can afford him.

Aaron Altherr ($2,900 DK/$2,200 FD)

Here we have another player that will probably go under-owned because of the park, but Altherr makes for a great punt on DraftKings at a sub-$3K price tag. Andrew Suarez is getting blasted by righties this season, allowing an over 90 MPH Average Exit Velocity with almost 50% hard-contact, while Altherr has a .229 ISO and 44% hard-contact against lefties this year. He may not have the highest home-run probability in AT&T park, but batting 2nd against Suarez is more than enough to put him in play as a one-off.

Wilson Ramos ($3,700 DK/$2,900 FD)

Ramos will likely be batting cleanup tonight against a lefty in Marco Gonzales, making him one of the better catcher plays on the slate. He has a 92.1 MPH Average Exit Velocity when facing lefties this season while striking out in under 20% of his at-bats. With catcher being thin outside of the top options tonight, I like the idea of getting a lefty-masher at a weak position against an average pitcher.
