Welcome to the Daily Four Pack where we share four core players on DraftKings that you are going to want to target for MLB DFS contests on Monday, June 24, 2019.
Pitcher to Target
There is risk with Keller tonight in both his performance and with the weather. With that being said if we get the okay that the weather is not going to wash this game out I like Keller a lot even with him coming off an awful performance last time out for a couple of reasons. The first is prior to his last performance Keller was solid pitched at least six innings in each of his previous five starts while only allowing more than three runs in one of those starts. The second is the match-up with the Indians. The Indians are hitting the ball really well right now and do have the second highest projected run total on the slate but have struggled against right-handed hitting this season and struggled against Keller earlier in the season. In that start, Keller allowed one run while striking out ten in 6.2 innings of action.

Hitters to Target
Stanton is way too cheap to be facing a struggling left-handed pitcher. In his career, Stanton has an OPS of 1.021, an ISO of .335 and a wOBA of .422 against left-handed pitching. Aaron Sanchez as I mentioned is struggling and has allowed hitters to slash .346/.421/.630 with a .428 wOBA and six home runs in his past four starts.
I really don’t know why I had Aaron Sanchez as a left-handed pitcher. Sanchez is right-handed but is still struggling allowing hitters to slash .346/.421/.630 with a .428 wOBA and six home runs in his past four starts and I still think Stanton is way too cheap.. Stanton should not be $4,500 tonight as he has five hits in the four games since his return to the Yankees and while his numbers are not as good against right-handed pitching as he is left-handed he is still damn good against them with an OPS of .869, an ISO of .261 and a wOBA of .369 against them in his career.

Flowers has struggled this season against left-handed pitching but has traditionally hit them well and just last season he had an OPS of 1.117, an ISO of .258 and a wOBA of .477 against them. Tonight I have a feeling he finally gets back on track against lefties as he takes on Jon Lester. Lester is allowing right-handed hitters to slug .484 with a .336 wOBA and a 44.1% hard-hit rate this season.

If this game was at Coors Field Arendao would be the most popular player on this slate as he is taking on a left-handed pitcher. With this game being at AT&T Park Arenado is likely to go under-owned tonight but he shouldn’t as he crushes left-handed pitching anywhere he is at. Since the start of the 2017 season, Arenado has an OPS of 1.129, an ISO of .345 and a wOBA of .459 against lefties in his road games. The left-hander he is facing Drew Pomeranz is also really bad and this season he is allowing right-handed hitters to slash .318/.396/.594 with a .412 wOBA.
