Davis has a chance to crush for O's vs. A's

Davis has a chance to crush for O's vs. A's

Welcome to DraftKings fantasy baseball, the Official Daily Fantasy Game of Major League Baseball.

The players listed below could provide difference-making stats for DraftKings participants on Sunday.

Brian McCann (Yankees): With 20 homers and 69 RBIs across 334 at-bats, the catcher has been one of the most productive players at his premium position this season. McCann will be primed to display his power when he brings his lifetime .828 OPS against right-handers (.754 vs. lefties) into a matchup with Blue Jays fly ball-prone righty Drew Hutchison (career 4.76 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) at homer-happy Rogers Centre.

Alex Rodriguez (Yankees): Rodriguez will be set to improve on his lofty lifetime .301/.381/.557 slash line against right-handers at the expense of Hutchison, who has struggled this season to the tune of a 5.26 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. With 24 homers and 63 RBIs across 386 at-bats, the Rodriguez has been among the most productive sluggers in the Junior Circuit this season.

Mark Teixeira (Yankees): The first baseman has hit 24 homers across 260 at-bats against right-handers this season, which has contributed to a .273/.351/.615 slash line in those matchups. Teixeira will be primed to rip his 31st round-tripper of the campaign when he tangles with the inconsistent Hutchison (career 1.1 HR/9 rate) at Toronto's hitter-friendly venue.

Chris Davis (Orioles): Batting .333 with 13 homers and 32 RBIs across 81 at-bats since July 22, the first baseman will bring a red-hot bat into a matchup at his hitter-friendly home park against A's righty Kendall Graveman (career 4.40 FIP, 1.40 WHIP). As a big leaguer, Davis has handled righties to the tune of an .854 OPS (.753 vs. southpaws).

Gerardo Parra (Orioles): The outfielder owns notable lifetime splits, with a .773 OPS against right-handers in comparison to a .599 mark vs. lefties. Parra -- who is hitting .313 this season -- could reach base often and score multiple runs at the expense of Graveman and an A's relief corps that sits 28th in baseball with a 4.27 ERA.

Xander Bogaerts (Red Sox): From a premium lineup spot, the shortstop -- who is hitting .311 this season -- could provide production at a scarce position when he brings his lifetime .838 OPS against left-handers (.640 vs. righties) into a matchup with Mariners southpaw Vidal Nuno (career 4.30 FIP).

Adam Lind (Brewers): The first baseman will seek to improve on his lifetime .865 OPS against right-handers (.585 vs. lefties) when he bats at his hitter-friendly home park against Phillies righty Aaron Harang (career 4.23 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). This season, Lind has hit .299 with 17 homers and 60 RBIs across 298 at-bats against righties.

Scooter Gennett (Brewers): Gennett owns some of the most lopsided career splits in baseball, with an .806 OPS against right-handers in comparison to a .287 mark vs. lefties. The second baseman could reach base often or score multiple runs against Harang (4.52 ERA, 1.37 WHIP in 2015). Also of note: Gennett and his teammates will attempt to put balls into play against a Phillies squad that sits last in baseball with a .663 defensive efficiency ratio.

Adrian Gonzalez (Dodgers): The first baseman will bring an impressive career .300/.376/.531 slash line against right-handers into a matchup with Reds righty Anthony DeSclafani (career 4.25 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). Gonzalez could also excel late in the game against a Reds relief corps that ranks 20th in baseball with a 3.84 ERA.

Justin Upton (Padres): With 20 homers and 18 steals across 453 plate appearances, the outfielder has contributed to DraftKings squads in multiple ways this season. Upton could display his power at homer-happy Coors Field when he puts his career .892 OPS against left-handers (.804 vs. righties) on the line against southpaw Chris Rusin (career 4.74 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) and a Rockies bullpen that ranks last in baseball with a 4.76 ERA.

Derek Norris (Padres): The catcher could go deep when he puts his career .843 OPS against left-handers (.641 vs. righties) to the test against Rusin. In his career, Rusin has allowed right-handed hitters such as Norris to post an .854 OPS (.723 OPS allowed to lefty batters).

Carlos Gonzalez (Rockies): Hitting .350 with 16 homers across 123 at-bats since July 5, the outfielder is among the hottest hitters in baseball. Gonzalez may continue to rake when he brings his career .303/.367/.561 slash line against right-handers and his lifetime .334/.395/.618 slash line at Coors Field into a home matchup with Padres righty Ian Kennedy (5.19 FIP in 2015).

Charlie Blackmon (Rockies): With 13 homers, 66 runs and 31 steals across 492 plate appearances, the outfielder has been a major factor in many 2015 DraftKings contests. Blackmon could reach base often against Kennedy (4.37 ERA, 1.28 WHIP in 2015), or swipe a base against Norris, who has allowed more steals than all but one catcher this season.

Taylor Jungmann (Brewers): With a 2.42 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP across 12 starts, the rookie righty has already become a trusted option for DraftKings participants. Jungmann could continue his run of initial success when he faces a Phillies lineup that ranks 29th in the Majors with a .674 OPS against right-handers.

Carlos Carrasco (Indians): With a season-to-date 2.90 FIP and 9.7 K/9 rate, the right-hander has the skills to post a difference-making total in DraftKings contests when he faces a Twins lineup that ranks 24th in baseball with a .694 OPS against righties.

Zack Greinke (Dodgers): DraftKings participants may wish to pay a premium price for Greinke, who has been arguably the best pitcher in baseball this season by virtue of a 1.59 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP. The right-hander -- who has posted a 2.05 ERA at his pitcher-friendly home park since joining the Dodgers at the outset of the 2013 season -- has the skills to excel in a home matchup against the Reds.

Carlos Martinez (Cardinals): With a 12-4 record and 2.62 ERA, Martinez has been one of this season's breakout starters. The right-hander could continue to hold the opposition in check when he works at home against a Marlins lineup that sits last in the Majors with a .655 OPS against righties.

All statistics are accurate through the completion of Friday's games.
