Max Kepler (DK: $4,200 FD: $2,900): The Minnesota Twins will face young right-hander Casey Mize tonight. Max Kepler has homered now in two straight games and could be due for another strong night since Mize is allowing lefties to hit him to the tune of a .270 xISO and a .410 xwOBA. Kepler also has a strong .261 ISO and eight homers off of righties this season. The final touch in this matchup is that Mize should throw Kepler a four-seamer or sinking-fastball nearly 60% of the time and Kepler owns at least a .250 xISO or better against both pitches.

Juan Soto (DK: $5,800): On DraftKings, one player you cannot fade tonight is superstar Juan Soto. Against right-handed pitching in 2020, Soto has an incredible .350 average, seven homers, 1.156 OPS, .304 ISO, and a 41% hard-hit rate. Tonight, Soto draws one of the worst starters in MLB against lefties; Zach Eflin and his .309 ISO and .420 wOBA allowed to them. Soto also already holds down a .467 career average against Eflin with four walks and a stolen base. This matchup provides a plethora of safety and upside for Soto and he will be locked into all of our DraftKings lineups.

Eddie Rosario (FD: $3,100): FanDuel priced Eddie Rosario criminally cheap tonight against right-hander Casey Mize. As mentioned above, Mize is allowing very high expected numbers to lefties and Rosario has nearly a .300 ISO against right-handers to go along with 12 homers. We can also tell you that Rosario currently holds down a .300 ISO against both of Mize’s four-seamer and sinking fastballs. We will be taking this cheap upside across every FanDuel lineup tonight!
