MLB DFS players have a full day of action on Sunday, June 9, with first pitch coming at 1:05 p.m. ET and the day wrapping up with a Sunday Night Baseball matchup between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals at 7 p.m. ET. Rays vs. Red Sox, Yankees vs. Indians and Dodgers vs. Giants are some of the more intriguing games on the schedule, but from an MLB DFS standpoint, they’re all important as daily Fantasy players must make the call on if big names like Blake Snell, Stephen Strasburg, Christian Yelich, Josh Bell or Austin Meadows are worth their price. And before locking in any MLB DFS picks of your own for Sunday, first be sure to see what Mike McClure has to say. He’s a DFS pro who has won almost $2 million in his career and his top MLB DFS lineups, advice and player pool can help you navigate the action on Sunday.
When it comes to MLB, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure rolled through last season, producing multiple lineups that cashed in huge.
He’s off to a hot start in 2019 as well, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments multiple times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. Anybody following him has seen plenty of huge returns. Now he’s set his sights on Sunday’s MLB DFS slates and locked in his picks. You can only see them at SportsLine.
For Sunday, one of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks is Twins outfielder Nelson Cruz. A veteran power bat who is still piling up home runs at age 38, Cruz will look to exploit a matchup against a struggling Detroit squad and pitcher Ryan Carpenter, who has a sky-high 6.23 ERA on the season. Carpenter has given up at least one home run in every start this season, so Cruz has a great chance to go deep and return value on Sunday’s slate.
Part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy for Sunday includes rostering Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who will take on the Pirates and starter Steven Brault, who has a 5.45 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP on the season. Braun got the series off with a strong line on Friday as he hit a home run and accounted for three RBIs in the series opener, and with Pittsburgh’s staff ERA now over 5.00 on the season, there should be plenty of opportunities for Braun to return value in this matchup.
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player with a dream matchup who is set to explode for huge numbers on Sunday. The stars are aligning for him to return huge value, and he comes at a lower price than you would expect. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
