MLB DFS Top Plays for Sunday 4/30/23
First up on our list of top targets is Tampa Bay’s Randy Arozarena ($4,400), who has been a major contributor to the Rays’ explosive offense this season. Arozarena has already hit seven home runs and stolen three bases while boasting an impressive slash line of .333/.400/.590. While he has never hit for an average quite like this before, he has shown consistent power and speed potential, recording at least 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in each of the last two seasons. We like him in this matchup against Mike Clevinger, who has struggled against right-handed hitters since returning from Tommy John surgery.
Next, we have Bryan Reynolds ($4,000) of the surprising Pittsburgh Pirates, who have gotten off to a hot start this season. Reynolds has been a major contributor to their success, batting .313 with five home runs and five stolen bases. He’s been particularly effective against right-handed pitching, posting an .876 OPS since 2021. With Josiah Gray struggling through his first few seasons and allowing an alarming number of runs, Reynolds could be a solid value play today.
Moving on to our bargain bats, we have journeyman Brandon Drury ($3,200) of the Los Angeles Angels. Drury has shown some impressive power over the last few years, slugging .493 during that time. He’s facing off against Colin Rea today, who has struggled with a 5.17 ERA in his first few starts. Michael Taylor ($2,600) of the Kansas City Royals is another intriguing option at a low price point, with four home runs and three stolen bases already this season. He’ll be facing his old teammate Brady Singer, who has struggled with a 6.67 ERA.
As for our stacks to consider, we have the Toronto Blue Jays facing off against Marco Gonzales of the Seattle Mariners. Gonzales has managed to post a 3.32 ERA through four starts, but hs FIP of 3.94 suggests that he may be due for some regression. Additionally, he has produced a FIP over 5.00 in each of his previous two seasons, making him a target for Blue Jays hitters like Vladimir Guerrero ($4,300), Bo Bichette ($3,900), and George Springer ($3,100). Guerrero is a particularly strong option with his impressive track record of hitting for both power and average.
Another stack to consider is the Baltimore Orioles against Spencer Turnbull of the Detroit Tigers. Turnbull has struggled since returning from Tommy John surgery, posting a 7.25 ERA across his first five starts. Jorge Mateo ($4,000), Adley Rutschman ($3,600), and Austin Hays ($3,100) are all solid options to consider here. Mateo has already stolen 10 bases this season while also hitting .353 with five home runs. Rutschman has shown strong plate discipline with a .410 OBP, while Hays has been hot of late with a .319/.367/.549 slash line and four home runs.
Finally, we have the Minnesota Twins facing off against Brady Singer of the Kansas City Royals. Singer has struggled this season with a 6.67 ERA, making Twins hitters like Byron Buxton ($5,400), Joey Gallo ($4,400), and Jose Miranda ($2,900) appealing options. Buxton has impressive power potential with a .553 slugging percentage over the last three seasons, while Joey Gallo has already hit seven home runs in his first season with the Twins and has a .462 slugging percentage against righties in the last couple of years. Jose Miranda has been a bit slow to start, but he has three home runs in the last four games and has produced a .773 home OPS in his career. Since Singer has allowed righties to hit .280 since 2021, these three right-handed batters could have a field day against him.
In conclusion, Sunday’s MLB DFS slate provides plenty of options at the plate, with Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins, and Toronto Blue Jays being some of the top offenses to target. Randy Arozarena, Bryan Reynolds, and Shohei Ohtani are some of the top targets for the day, while bargain bats like Brandon Drury and Michael Taylor provide value for their affordable salaries. The stacks to consider are the Rays facing Mike Clevinger, the Blue Jays against Marco Gonzales, and the Twins facing Brady Singer. As always, keep an eye on the weather and other last-minute updates before finalizing your DFS lineups. Good luck to all DFS players out there!
