First up, we have Mike Trout from the L.A. Angels, facing off against the Oakland A’s.

Next on the list is Bobby Witt Jr. of the Kansas City Royals, who is facing off against Tommy Henry of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

He’s projected to bat first in the lineup and has a DK projection of 10.07.
Corbin Carroll, also of the Arizona Diamondbacks, is up next, facing off against Brad Keller of the Kansas City Royals.

MLB DFS Gems: Carroll, Perez, and Pasquantino for Monday
Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals is another great option for today’s slate. He’s facing off against Tommy Henry, a left-handed pitcher who relies heavily on both the slider and curve. Perez has been slugging .625 in his last 16 plate appearances against lefties with that type of pitching style. He’s projected to bat third in the lineup and has a DK projection of 9.05.
Vinnie Pasquantino of the Kansas City Royals is also worth considering, with a DK salary of just $3500. He’s been hitting well lately, with a wOBA of .406 in his last 55 plate appearances. He’s projected to bat fourth in the lineup and has a DK projection of 8.19.

Diamond in the Rough: Varsho a Sleeper Pick for Monday’s MLB DFS
Daulton Varsho of the Toronto Blue Jays is also worth considering, with a DK salary of $4000. He’s projected to bat fourth in the lineup and has a DK projection of 7.80. Varsho has been struggling lately, batting just .159 in his last 44 at-bats.
