Matt Olson – The Powerhouse

Matt Olson has been a force to be reckoned with this season. He boasts an impressive 24 home runs, a stellar .410 OBP, a jaw-dropping .398 ISO, and an outstanding 187 wRC+ in 244 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers at home. For MLB DFS enthusiasts, these stats make him an enticing pick.

Ezequiel Tovar – The Intriguing Option

In the Mile High City of Denver, Ezequiel Tovar has emerged as a hidden gem for DFS players. While his OBP hovers below .300, he has managed to accumulate 15 homers, three triples, and 10 stolen bases. His salary-friendly price tag only adds to his appeal. Keep an eye on him.

Ronald Acuna – The Speedster

Ronald Acuna has been tearing it up this season, especially against righties at home. With 12 home runs, a .410 OBP, a .229 ISO, and an impressive 159 wRC+ in 266 plate appearances, he’s not just about power; his speed game is strong with 63 stolen bases.

Wilmer Flores – The Power Hitter

Wilmer Flores may not be the fastest player on the base paths, but his power is undeniable. In 2023, he’s maintained a .284 batting average and smashed 21 home runs in just 107 games. Against left-handed pitchers, he’s been particularly lethal with a remarkable .916 OPS. Facing Ty Blach, who has struggled since joining the Rockies, Flores could shine.

Francisco Lindor – The Consistent Performer

Francisco Lindor has been a steady performer when facing left-handed pitchers since 2022. He’s knocked out 22 homers, maintained a .323 OBP, displayed a .229 ISO, and held a reliable 128 wRC+ in 378 plate appearances. His consistency makes him a valuable asset for your DFS lineup.

Freddie Freeman – The Dodgers’ Slugger

Freddie Freeman has been a key figure in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ impressive offensive displays. With an OPS of .934 in his past 13 games, he’s been a driving force behind the team’s success. Facing left-handed pitcher MacKenzie Gore, Freeman is projected to yield an impressive 17.7 FanDuel DFS projection, the highest among all batters. Even in a lefty-on-lefty matchup, Freeman’s batting prowess is hard to ignore.

Mark Vientos – The Rising Star

Mark Vientos is quickly finding his footing in the big leagues. He enters the game on a hot streak, with a five-game hitting streak, including two home runs. His dominance against lefties in the minors, with an OPS north of 1.100 in 2022 and 2023, makes him an intriguing option for DFS.

Ronny Mauricio – The Value Play

Ronny Mauricio has demonstrated his ability to handle left-handed pitchers with a solid .786 OPS in Triple-A this year. Consider him as a value pick when facing a pitcher like Keuchel.

Corey Seager – The Rangers’ Bright Spot

Despite the Texas Rangers’ recent struggles, Corey Seager has been on fire. With a .856 OPS, four homers, and seven RBI in his last dozen games, he’s been a standout performer. Facing the struggling Oakland Athletics in the hitter-friendly Globe Life Field, Seager is poised for success. He boasts a 14.1 expected FanDuel points projection and a .500 batting average against the A’s this season.

Bo Naylor – The Right-Handed Threat

Bo Naylor has been a right-handed force in 2023, with eight homers, a .333 OBP, a .258 ISO, and a solid 126 wRC+ in 144 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers. Keep him on your radar for Friday’s matchups.
