The MLB season rolls on tonight, bringing fans some exciting matchups. If you're looking for some advice for your MLB daily fantasy lineup tonight, The Duel is here to help.
Without further ado, here are two hitters and one pitcher to target in Monday, 4/12 MLB DFS action.
FanDuel Picks Tonight MLB
Aaron Judge Fantasy
Aaron Judge, OF, New York Yankees ($4,100): Southpaw Robbie Ray will be making his first start of the season for the Toronto Blue Jays, and that means it's easy to like the New York Yankees' offense tonight. Ray posted an abysmal 6.62 ERA (backed by a 5.49 skill-interactive ERA) in 2020. Aaron Judge has been quite over his last couple games, but even in a down year in 2020 he mashed left-handed pitchers to the tune of a .383 weighted on-base average (wOBA) and .360 isolate power (ISO). He should have no issues against Ray tonight.
Mitch Moreland Fantasy
Mitch Moreland, 1B, Oakland Athletics ($2,800): Mitch Moreland is a top value play assuming he returns from his minor knee injury tonight. Madison Bumgarner has had a terrible start to 2021, which is right in line with what we saw from him across 9 starts in 2020. Even in a lefty-versus-lefty matchup, Moreland is a threat to do some real damage against Bumgarner. Moreland has struggled early in 2021 as well, but just last year he posted a career-high .372 wOBA.
Tyler Glasnow Fantasy
Tyler Glasnow, P, Tampa bay Rays ($10,700): It's always tempting to pay up for Gerrit Cole, but Tyler Glasnow's matchup makes him easy to like in that same price range. The Texas Rangers offense has been abysmal to start the season, checking in with a wRC+ of just 87. Especially notable for Glasnow's fantasy outlook is that Texas is also striking out at the second-highest rate in the majors (28.9%). And that's backed by the seventh-highest swinging-strike rate (12.8%). Glasnow posted a career-best 38.2% strikeout rate in 2020 and has followed that up with a 34.9% mark so far in 2021. Expect a ton of K's in tonight's performance.
