Welcome to the Daily Three Pack where we share three core players on Yahoo that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
In this article, I am going to give you three core plays that I am using in cash games for the main slate of games. This core will include a pitcher and two hitters. I will also give you a bonus play which will be my favorite expensive hitter normally over $20 in salary on this slate.
Pitcher to Target
Love the salary on Yarbrough especially now that the Rays are not using an opener with him. Yarbrough has started three of his past four appearances and in those starts, he has pitched at least seven innings in each start and has allowed two or fewer earned runs in two of the starts. Tonight we should see Yarbrough pitch deep in the game again and I would be shocked if he didn’t have another strong start as the Angels are just an average at best team hitting left-handed pitching.

Hitters to Target
I love targeting hitters against Jon Lester and I love to target Hernandez against left-handed pitching. Hernandez has always just hit left-handed pitching well and this season he has an OPS of .836, an ISO of .210 and a wOBA of .351 against them.
Yesterday’s Results: Chance Sisco 16.1 fantasy points
There is no reason for Sisco to be minimum salary tonight. Yes, Marcus Stroman has been excellent this season but he is struggling right now and tends to struggle against left-handed hitters. Sisco has also been hot since his call-up with hits in each of his past four starts with an extra-base hit in each game as well.
Yesterday’s Results: Kelvin Gutierrez 7.8 fantasy points
Gregorius has multiple hits in each of his three starts since his return with a home run, three runs scored and two RBIs. Gregorius is not just hitting the ball well since his return but I love the match-up against Ivan Nova. Nova really struggles against left-handed hitting. Since the start of the 2016 season, lefties are slashing .309/.346/,522 with a .366 wOBA against Nova.
Yesterday’s Results: Freddie Freeman 14.2 fantasy points
