The Daily Three Pack – Yahoo MLB DFS Picks- June 17, 2019

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 Monday, June 17, 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

P-Elieser Hernandez-$27

Hernandez was elite in Triple-A this season and looked good in his first start in the majors this season with seven strikeouts and only three runs allowed in 5.2 innings against the same Cardinals team he faces tonight. Those numbers would have been even better too if the Marlins defense did not let him down in the sixth inning. While it may seem like Hernandez cannot repeat that performance tonight I think he can as the Cardinals have been one of the worst hitting teams over the past month of play. During the past 30 days, the Cards rank 27th in team wOBA, 24th in team ISO and have the seventh highest team K rate.

Hitters to Target

3B-Eugenio Suarez-$13

his season in his away starts, Miley is allowing righties to slug .480 with a .337 wOBA and a 36.1% hard-hit rate. Those struggles should really come in play tonight against Suarez as Suarez always hits lefties well. Since the start of last season, Suarez has an OPS of .995, an ISO of .266 and a wOBA of .414 against left-handed pitching.

C-Jonathan Lucroy-$12

I am not a big BvP guy but when I am already attacking a pitcher as I will with Edwin Jackson tonight I look at those numbers. Lucroy’s numbers jump out at me against Jackson as he has an OPS of 1.037 with 12 hits including two home runs in his 32 career at-bats.

Cleanup Hitter

OF-Mike Trout-$28

I am the biggest Trout hater in the world but even I cannot deny how important it is to get Trout in your lineups tonight as he takes on Edwin Jackson. Jackson has been one of the worst if not the worst pitcher in baseball this season and is allowing right-handed hitters to put up video game like numbers. This season righties are slashing .417/.478/.933 no that last number is not a typo with a wOBA of .564. Trout who has two home runs in his six at-bats against Jackson is going to add to that number tonight and I would not be shocked if he doubled that number in this one.
