DFS MLB Picks Today | Daily Fantasy Baseball Cash, GPP & Stacks Tips

The main slate on DraftKings is large tonight, featuring 11 games. It’s light on high-end pitching, however, so offense should be plentiful.

Let’s get down to business with our best MLB DFS picks today.

All MLB DFS odds and prices are current as of Friday, May 20, at 9 a.m. ET from DraftKings.

MLB DFS Cash Pick Today: Hitter

Aaron Judge, OF, New York Yankees ($6,100)

New York Yankees vs Chicago White Sox

Judge is annihilating baseballs this year, batting .307/.381/.664 with a 203 wRC+ and an MLB-high 14 homers in 156 plate appearances.

Look for him to keep mashing tonight against lefty Dallas Keuchel, who’s gotten torched for a 5.54 ERA and a 1.96 WHIP in six starts thus far.

Judge has also crushed southpaws throughout his career to the tune of a .978 OPS and a 163 wRC+, making him an easy choice for our MLB DFS pick of the day.

MLB DFS Cash Pick Today: Pitcher

Chase Silseth, SP, Los Angeles Angels ($7,800)

Los Angeles Angels vs Oakland Athletics

Silseth made his MLB debut for the Angels on the road last week, holding the A’s scoreless over six innings while permitting just one hit. Oakland will get their second look at the young righty, but their offense is simply dreadful.

In fact, the A’s rank dead last in wRC+ overall (78) and against right-handed pitchers (72). They also have the 10th-highest strikeout rate vs. RHP, making this a great matchup at home for the 22-year-old rookie.

MLB DFS GPP Pick Today: Hitter

Jesse Winker, OF, Seattle Mariners ($3,100)

Seattle Mariners @ Boston Red Sox

Winker got off to a horrendous start this year, but he’s rebounded magnificently by hitting safely in 13 of his last 15 games.

Tonight, he has a good matchup against righty Michael Wacha at hitter-friendly Fenway Park. Wacha is coming off the IL to make his first start since May 3, so he could be rusty. He’s also due for significant regression, as his 1.38 ERA is well below all of his run estimators.

With a career .922 OPS against RHP, Winker is a smart play versus Boston tonight.

MLB DFS GPP Pick Today: Pitcher

Robbie Ray, SP, Seattle Mariners ($8,000)

Seattle Mariners @ Boston Red Sox

The park factors and quality of Boston’s roster make Ray a risky pick, but the Red Sox have struggled mightily against southpaws this year with MLB’s third-lowest wRC+ (79) vs. LHP.

Last year’s AL Cy Young winner also has a high ceiling thanks to his ability to miss bats, posting a 25.0 K% and a 14.9 SwStr% in eight starts this year. With 19 punchouts over his last two starts combined, Ray could be poised for another high strikeout total this evening.

MLB DFS Stack Today

New York Yankees vs Chicago White Sox

  • Aaron Judge ($6,100)
  • Giancarlo Stanton ($5,700)
  • Gleyber Torres ($4,300)

Keuchel is ill-equipped to tame the Bronx Bombers tonight. Specifically, his pitch-to-contact approach has the potential to blow up in his face against power hitters such as the trio listed above.

Judge was highlighted as our cash pick, but Stanton was my second choice. The veteran exit velocity whiz has belted 11 round-trippers this year and leads the AL with 35 RBIs. He also has a .267 ISO that pairs perfectly with Keuchel’s inability to miss bats (5.5 K/9).

Finally, Torres might seem like an odd inclusion at first blush instead of DJ LeMahieu or Josh Donaldson. Torres has been in excellent form over the past month, however, with four home runs, 17 RBIs, and an .816 OPS over his last 24 games while striking out in just 11.5% of his plate appearances.

Back these right-handed sluggers to do damage against a diminished southpaw at home.
