Welcome to the Tuesday edition of Daily Fantasy Baseball, Draftkings Picks For April 25.

Tonight there is Clayton Kershaw and Coors. Good luck getting that to work out for you.

There will be a lot of trust issues. Are you trusting Ervin Santana and Daniel Duffy? What about Wade Miley?

We won’t be covering any Rockies and Nationals tonight. If you can afford to put them in, do so. It should go without saying. Bryce Harper is $6,100 tonight. Pairing him with Kershaw will most likely send you to the cheap for everyone else.

Lets’ get to the Draftkings Picks For April 25

Draftkings Picks For April 25

Pitcher

Clayton Kershaw, LAD vs. SF ($14,300)

 

I don’t know if I can even recommend him. The Giants are statistically awful. Not saying it hasn’t been done this year already, but how do you get shutout at Coors? The price is insane on Kershaw tonight. Good luck getting him in with a good stack you can be comfortable with.

Wade Miley, TB at BAL ($6,900)

Over his last two games, he has had 19 punch-outs. I actually like Wade Miley tonight vs. a weak Tampa Bay team. We have to have some value somewhere if we want Rox and Nats. I know he’s due for a regression but not tonight.

 

Catcher

Salvador Perez, KC at CWS ($3,400)

Yes, the Royals haven’t been scoring lately, but let’s be honest, most of us haven’t. The Royals struggles haven’t been because of Perez, although he has been held out due to neck issues, but not the Aaron Hernandez kind.

Austin Hedges, SD at ARI ($2,900)

Hedges has been red hot. I really like the way this game stacks up. The pitching will be atrocious and the price on Hedges is criminal.

 

First Base

Eric Thames, CIN at MIL ($4,200)

 

Say what? This price is still too low. I’m not changing anything. Dude went off last night and tonight we expect more of the same.

Wil Myers, SD at ARI ($4,900)

Once again we will target this game. I’m baffled as to why the price on Myers is so low. He has been having a great year. He has a .354 average as of this writing and is amongst the league leaders in hits.

 

Second Base

Starlin Castro, NYY at BOS ($3,600)

 

Well, it’s been feast or famine for Castro. His game logs are either in the high teens to 20’s or he will get you 3. We have a hitters park of sorts in Fenway so Castro will be someone I’ll take a hard look at tonight.

Jed Lowrie, OAK at LAA ($2,600)

We are getting Lowrie at a great discount tonight. He plays on the west coast so everyone will be off of him. I expect low ownership and great results as the Angels are trotting out some dude named J.C. Ramirez who hasn’t really been awful but the A’s are like those pesky gnats that just won’t go away. Much like your inlaws over the holidays.

 

Third Base

Eugenio Suarez, CIN at MIL ($3,700)

 

This is another game I like if I’m staying away from Coors. Suarez has been balling out. A two home-run game on Saturday has propelled him to the middle of the order and with guys like Duvall in front of him, he’s getting plenty of pitches to hit.

Chris Coghlan, TOR at STL ($2,400)

Chris Coghlan is a straight punt play tonight to fit some big bats in. He is dirt cheap and is projected to hit in the middle of the Jays order. The knock is that the Who Jays haven’t been hitting, but for $2,400 I really don’t need him to do much.

 

Shortstop

Taylor Motter, SEA at DET ($3,100)

 

When you have a sweet mullet there’s only one thing to do and that’s hit dingers! Motter is another feast or famine type of player like Castro, but this game is in Detroit so it’s a little bit of a park shift from Seattle. Once again we are looking at value to fit Nats and Rox bats in.

Corey Seager, LAD at SF ($4,000)

Trevor Story is expensive, so let’s go to my plan B, Corey Seager. He faces Ty Blach tonight who is filling in for the pitcher formally known as Madison Bumgarner. AT&T is a massive park but I like the Dodgers to get to Blach.

 

Outfielder

Nelson Cruz, SEA at DET ($4,300)

 

We need to find options away from Coors and once again another Mariner makes our list. This time we are targeting Nelson Cruz. Jordan Zimmermann has been awful and we are taking advantage of that tonight.

Adam Duvall, CIN at MIL ($4,300)

I really do love this Reds and Brewers game tonight. Duvall’s price is perfect and Zach Davies has been pretty awful this year. Combine that with an implied run total of 4.16 for the Reds and this game has all of the makings of another high scoring affair.

A.J. Pollock, SD at ARI ($4,300)

 

Once again great value in this game. Pollock has been very consistent this year for DFS. I can’t stress enough how ballpark factors matter and with this game in Arizona, I can’t stress that enough.

Top Stacks

Remember we can only stack five hitters. However, as I mentioned before, the three team requirement is gone. If we aren’t stacking Coors because we want some Kershaw loving, here are my non-Coors top stacks.

  • Milwaukee Brewers
  • Arizona Diamondbacks
  • Cincinnati Reds
  • Seattle Mariners

Best of luck today and I hope you enjoyed my Draftkings Picks For April 25.
