This article is part of our DraftKings MLB series.
Danny Salazar, CLE at OAK ($7,500): Salazar allowed three runs with three walks while recording just one out in his last start, so he is only viable in GPPs on Tuesday. However, the Athletics have a .288 wOBA at home, which is the second-worst mark in the majors. Salazar has been short of elite this year, even at his best, but he still has a healthy 27.1 percent K rate and 3.57 ERA.
Andrew Cashner, MIA vs. KC ($4,100): The Royals' offense has really struggled over the last month, posting a 76 wRC+. Cashner has lacked consistency, but he goes from one desirable pitching environment in San Diego to another in Miami. He has pitched at least five innings and given up no more than three earned runs in 14 of his 20 starts this season, and while you won't get ace-level production, he presents considerable value near the minimum price.
Jason Castro, HOU at PIT ($3,600):Ivan Nova brings in pretty substantial R/L splits, showing some ability against righties while his xFIP against lefties this season has floated to 4.62. Castro has a 121 wRC+ this month and carries a substantial split himself, with his wRC+ against righties sitting 64 points higher than lefties for the year.
Freddie Freeman, ATL at ARI ($5,400): If you've been playing Freeman over the past month, you've likely been profitable. Over the past 30 days, Freeman has a .502 wOBA and 219 wRC+ (both are highest in the majors for players with over 100 plate appearances) to go with a .394 ISO. Freeman meets Archie Bradley, who has given up 1.96 HR/9 and a 5.44 xFIP against lefties this season.
Robinson Cano, SEA vs. NYY ($3,700): Cano is so cheap because its lefty against lefty, but CC Sabathia actually has reverse splits this season with a poor 5.03 xFIP against left-handed hitters. Cano does have a negative split against lefties, but his career wRC+ is still a solid 109. Plus, Sabathia hasn't gone past the sixth inning in his last four starts, which means Cano could still see multiple at bats against right-handed pitching. Given the scarcity at the position, this value is strong.
Josh Donaldson, TOR vs. LAA ($4,700): After a strong intro after being moved into the rotation, Tyler Skaggs' xFIP has ballooned to 5.10 and HR/9 up to 1.98. The splits aren't drastic, but the southpaw has given up home runs to righties at a fairly high rate. Enter Donaldson, who has a 166 wRC+ against left-handed pitching this season.
Jonathan Villar, MIL vs. COL ($4,200): The BABIP is high, but it's been high all season and appears to be somewhat sustainable. His power numbers against righties aren't great, but he still has a 111 wRC+, and he 36 stolen bases. Jon Gray has garnered admiration for his ability to pitch well at Coors Field, but he's actually struggled some on the road, allowing a 4.22 xFIP.
Kevin Kiermaier, TB vs. BOS ($3,700):Clay Buchholz is abysmal, especially against lefties, and the Rays' offense isn't much better, but they should have four lefties in the starting lineup. Kiermaier's split against righties is a mediocre 98 wRC+, but that's 18 points better than against lefties. Additionally, he bats second in the order and has 12 stolen bases this season, showing he can produce in multiple categories.
Adam Eaton, CHW vs. PHI ($4,200): Phillies starter Jake Thompson has struggled through his first three major league starts with his ERA sitting at 8.79 while giving up 1.88 HR/9. Meanwhile, Eaton has been one of the lone bright spots for the White Sox, as he has a 120 wRC+ this month and his season-long righty split is nine points higher than against lefties.
Dexter Fowler, CHC at SD ($3,900): Fowler brings a 140 wRC+ against lefties and is in the leadoff spot for the strongest offense in baseball, yet he comes in at under $4,000. Meanwhile, Padres' southpaw Christian Friedrich has permitted a 5.19 xFIP against righties on the season.
