The 2019 MLB trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, presenting some challenges for MLB DFS players as they try to keep up with all the MLB news and set lineups for daily Fantasy tournaments such as the $125K Wednesday MLB Rally on FanDuel or the $300K Wednesday Web Gem on DraftKings. Christian Yelich, George Springer and Nelson Cruz are some of the more expensive bats available, while top arms include Jacob deGrom, Jose Berrios and Lucas Giolito. Trades could shake up lineups and matchups in a huge way, so before finalizing your own MLB DFS lineups for Wednesday, be sure to see what DFS pro Mike McClure has to say. His optimal lineups, MLB DFS advice and player pool can help you navigate all of the day’s events and make the right calls on Wednesday. 

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’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

He got off to a hot start in 2019, producing lineups on SportsLine that have returned as much as 30x in the first half of the season. He’s also finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments four times and the top 0.1 percent of tournaments twice this season already. He cashed huge in three consecutive tournaments in mid-June, which included a top 2 percent finish when his DraftKings lineup generated a whopping 185.9 points. He also had an optimal lineup on FanDuel that cashed 8x for followers right before the All-Star break. 

Then on Tuesday, he rostered Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner on FanDuel. The result: Turner went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs scored and a pair of walks — returning over 30 points and 7x value. Now, McClure has set his sights on Wednesday’s MLB DFS slates. You can see his full roster at SportsLine.

One of McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Wednesday is Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper at $4,200 on FanDuel and $4,300 on DraftKings. Harper (.253/18/72) ranks eighth in the National League in RBIs, and while his average might not be exactly what MLB DFS players were expecting this year, he’s still getting on base a ton. He ranks second in the NL in walks (71), giving him plenty of opportunities to score runs. 

Part of his optimal MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Athletics outfielder Khris Davis ($2,700 on FanDuel, $3,300 on DraftKings). Davis (17 home runs) is one of the most affordable power sources on both sites on Wednesday. And while it’s been a rough July overall (.171) for him, he might be finding his swing after going 3-for-4 with a home run against the Brewers on Tuesday. He’ll look to exploit a favorable matchup against Jordan Lyles, who is making his first start for Milwaukee and had a 5.36 ERA this year with the Pirates

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Wednesday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won’t break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
