Trout, Donaldson set to fill up stat sheets

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 Tuesday.

Carlos Gonzalez: In his career, the outfielder has fared best when facing right-handers (.304/.368/.566 slash line) and at his hitter-friendly home park (.330/.390/.624 slash line). Gonzalez could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he hits at home against Yankees righty Nathan Eovaldi (career 4.13 ERA, 1.38 WHIP).

Zinkie on McGee injury

Charlie Blackmon: The outfielder could excel when he brings his lifetime .794 OPS against right-handers (.742 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the right-handed Eovaldi, who in his career has allowed left-handed hitters such as Blackmon to post a .784 OPS (.670 OPS allowed to righty batters). Blackmon could also swipe a base against Brian McCann, who has allowed more steals than all but five catchers in 2016.

Nick Hundley: Since joining the Rockies at the outset of 2015, the catcher has posted an .830 OPS against right-handers (.729 vs. lefties) and a .921 OPS at home (.677 on the road). Hundley could provide production at a premium position when he hits at home against the right-handed Eovaldi (4.42 ERA in 2016).

Danny Valencia: Hitting .335 with 10 homers across 168 at-bats, the third baseman has made a major impact in many 2016 DraftKings contests. Valencia could excel when he brings his lifetime .888 OPS against left-handers (.681 vs. righties) into a matchup with southpaw Martin Perez (career 4.01 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) and a Rangers relief corps that ranks 29th in the Majors with a 4.82 ERA.

Marcus Semien: With 12 homers across 206 at-bats, the shortstop has been one of the most powerful players at his premium position this season. Semien could thrive when he brings his lifetime .845 OPS against left-handers (.657 vs. righties) into a matchup with the left-handed Perez, who in his career has allowed right-handed hitters such as Semien to post a .760 OPS (.637 OPS allowed to lefty batters).

Zinkie on top prospects

Miguel Cabrera: With an impressive lifetime .322/.389/.563 slash line against right-handers, the first baseman has proven to wield a potent bat in those matchups. Cabrera could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he faces White Sox righty Miguel Gonzalez (career 4.66 FIP, 1.3 HR/9 rate) at hitter-friendly U.S. Cellular Field.

Starlin Castro: The second baseman could provide production at a premium position when he brings his lifetime .760 OPS against left-handers (.712 vs. righties) into a matchup with the left-handed De La Rosa and an unreliable Rockies relief corps. In his career, De La Rosa has allowed right-handed hitters such as Castro to post a .797 OPS (.645 OPS allowed to lefty batters).

Mike Trout: With a lifetime .311/.399/.571 slash line against right-handers, the outfielder has proven to be one of the best in baseball during those matchups. Trout may be worth a notable investment in DraftKings contests when he tangles with righty Ervin Santana (4.77 ERA, 1.46 WHIP in 2016) and a Twins bullpen that ranks 26th in the Majors with a 4.58 ERA.

Kole Calhoun: The outfielder could thrive when he brings his lifetime .777 OPS against right-handers (.725 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the right-handed Santana, who has posted a 4.28 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP since joining the Twins at the outset of 2015. Also of note: Calhoun will attempt to put balls into play against a Twins squad that ranks last in the Majors with a .658 defensive efficiency ratio.

Josh Donaldson: Since joining the Blue Jays at the outset of 2015, the third baseman has posted a .282/.360/.540 slash line against right-handers and a .320/.394/.617 slash line at his hitter-friendly home park. Donaldson could post an impactful DraftKings total when he hits at home against Phillies righty Zach Eflin, who will be making his first career start.

Zinkie on Anderson's impact

Michael Saunders: With a lifetime .724 OPS against right-handers that exceeds his .684 mark vs. lefties, the outfielder -- who is hitting .311 with 11 homers across 209 at-bats this season -- could have a great game at the expense of the inexperienced righty Eflin and a Phillies bullpen that ranks 23rd in baseball with a 4.19 ERA.

Jason Kipnis: The second baseman has long fared best vs. right-handers, against whom has posted a lifetime .806 OPS (.658 vs. lefties). Kipnis could display his power or reach base often when he faces Royals fly-ball-prone righty Chris Young, who owns a lifetime 1.2 HR/9 rate and has logged a 6.37 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP this season.

Jordan Zimmermann: With a lifetime 3.31 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP, the right-hander has the skills to spin a gem when he faces a White Sox lineup that ranks 27th in baseball with a .685 OPS against righties.

Josh Tomlin: With a 3.48 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP, the right-hander has been a cost-effective option in many 2016 DraftKings contests. The fly-ball-prone Tomlin will be in prime position to deliver a stellar start when he works at pitcher-friendly Kauffman Stadium against a Royals lineup that ranks last in the American League with 54 homers.

Julio Teheran: With a 2.85 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP this season, the right-hander has bounced back from a down year in 2015. Teheran could post a notable DraftKings total when he works at his pitcher-friendly home park against a Reds lineup that ranks 22nd in baseball with a .701 OPS against righties.

Teheran strikes out 12

Marcus Stroman: Having produced 7.58 ERA across his past five starts, the right-hander could have a reduced price tag in DraftKings contests when he faces a Phillies lineup that ranks 28th in the Majors with a .662 OPS against righties. Also working in Stroman's favor: The righty will work in front of a Blue Jays squad that ranks third in the Majors with a .710 defensive efficiency ratio.

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