Today's MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, June 11

SP: Dakota Hudson, Cardinals @ Marlins. Have the Marlins been better lately? Sure, but so has Hudson. He has four straight quality starts in which he’s allowed two earned runs or fewer, five straight overall, and nine consecutive outings of three earned or fewer. The Marlins are dead last in the league against RHP in almost every offensive category that matters. Hudson will likely be the chalkiest pitcher on the slate, which is fine for cash, but in GPPs it might be worth it to fade him. Pivot to someone such as Trent Thornton.

C: Danny Jansen, Blue Jays @ Orioles. Jansen is so cheap at $2.3K on DK it’s at least worth a look. He does have a .351 OPS against southpaws this year and is coming off a multi-hit contest, hopefully building some momentum.

1B: Eric Hosmer, Padres @ Giants. I know offense goes to die in San Francisco, but we shouldn’t just fade it completely when we have a great matchup. Tyler Beede just doesn’t retire LHHs at all. They’re batting .379 with an OPS of 1.230 and a .502 wOBA against him. Hosmer is struggling but still batting .292 against RHP on the year. He’s a really nice value.

2B: Brian Dozier, Nationals @ White Sox. Dozier is hitting everyone right now. He;s slashing .393/.469/.857 over his past 10 contests with seven extra-base hits. He’s absolutely crushing southpaws this season, hitting .367 with a robust .489 wOBA, making him an elite play on this slate.

SS: Trevor Story, Rockies vs. Cubs. Holding down Story back in back-to-back games at home doesn’t happen often, especially when you factor in that he’s facing a southpaw in this contest. He has a 1.068 OPS at home this year and a .324 average and .366 wOBA against southpaws. Javier Baez is also an elite play on the flipside of this game.

3B: Marwin Gonzalez, Twins vs. Mariners. If you’re looking to spend down at 3B, Gonzalez is the play. He’s 8-for-14 off of Mike Leake throughout his career and comes into this one hot, batting .308 over his past 10 games.

OF: Josh Reddick, Astros vs. Brewers. Reddick is a solid play in cash games today. He continues to hit extremely well, batting .317 over his past 10 games and .312 for the entire year. Reddick has a nice matchup against Freddy Peralta, who's allowed LHH a .279 AVG and .350 wOBA. Michael Brantley from the same OF is a very nice play, as well.
