Kipnis, Ramos, deGrom set for terrific Tuesday

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

The players listed below are in position to provide difference-making stats for DraftKings participants on Tuesday.

Jason Kipnis: From the No. 2 spot in the lineup, Kipnis could excel when he brings his lifetime 127 wRC+ against right-handers (87 vs. lefties) into a matchup with righty Kyle Gibson (4.54 ERA, 1.40 WHIP in 2016) and a Twins bullpen that ranks 23rd in the Majors with a 4.28 ERA.

Tyler Naquin: The rookie outfielder will be in great position to improve on his impressive .343/.404/.646 slash line against right-handers when he meets up with the right-handed Gibson (career 4.44 ERA, 1.36 WHIP) and a Twins squad that ranks last in baseball with a .667 defensive efficiency ratio.

Zinkie on Miller's fantasy value

Wilson Ramos: The catcher has long done his best work vs. left-handed pitching, posting a lifetime .779 OPS off them compared to a .732 mark vs. righties. Hitting .327 with 15 homers in 321 at-bats this year, Ramos could excel against lefty Robbie Ray (career 4.51 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) and a D-backs relief corps that ranks 29th in baseball with a 4.90 ERA.

Danny Espinosa: With a lifetime .198 ISO against left-handers that exceeds his .155 mark vs. righties, the shortstop could rip his 19th round-tripper of the season or drive in multiple runs when he faces the southpaw Ray (4.70 ERA, 1.50 WHIP in 2016) and an inconsistent D-backs bullpen.

Jayson Werth: The outfielder has long fared best vs. left-handers, against whom he has a lifetime 148 wRC+ (113 vs. righties). Werth could display his power or reach base often when he faces the left-handed Ray and a D-backs squad that ranks 29th in baseball with a .668 defensive efficiency ratio.

Xander Bogaerts: Hitting .329 with 67 RBIs and 79 runs across 468 plate appearances, the shortstop has been one of the most productive players in the American League this season. From the No. 3 spot in a Red Sox lineup that leads the Majors with 574 runs scored, Bogaerts could post a substantial DraftKings total when he brings his lifetime .857 OPS against left-handers (.727 vs. righties) into a matchup with Mariners southpaw Wade LeBlanc (career 4.46 ERA, 1.40 WHIP).

Zinkie on Miley's fantasy value

Dustin Pedroia: The second baseman could reach base often and score multiple runs when he bats out of the No. 2 spot in a potent Red Sox lineup against the left-handed LeBlanc (4.26 ERA in 2016). In his career, Pedroia has posted a 127 wRC+ against left-handers in comparison to a 113 mark vs. righties.

Carlos Correa: With 15 homers, 10 steals and a .364 on-base percentage across 439 plate appearances, Correa has the versatile skill set that DraftKings participants covet. The second-year shortstop will be poised to improve on his lifetime .866 OPS against right-handers (.788 vs. lefties), when he faces Blue Jays righty R.A. Dickey (4.66 ERA, 1.8 HR/9 rate in 2016).

Carlos Gonzalez: Gonzalez has traditionally fared best against right-handers (lifetime .305/.370/.564 slash line) and at his hitter-friendly home park (.335/.394/.631 slash line). The outfielder could post a substantial DraftKings total when he hits at home against Dodgers righty Brandon McCarthy (career 4.09 ERA, 1.28 WHIP).

Scooter Gennett: The second baseman owns lopsided lifetime splits, with a .337 wOBA against right-handers that exceeds his .223 mark vs. lefties. Gennett could provide cost-effective production at a premium position when he faces rookie righty Luis Perdomo (6.89 ERA, 1.81 WHIP) and a Padres bullpen that ranks 24th in baseball with a 4.32 ERA.

Brandon Belt: Having hit 50 of his 74 career homers when batting away from his pitcher-friendly home park, the first baseman will be poised to go deep when he faces rookie righty Zach Eflin (4.23 ERA) at homer-happy Citizens Bank Park.

Zinkie on Davis heading to DL

Nomar Mazara: With a .350 wOBA against right-handers (.255 vs. lefties), the left-handed-hitting outfielder will be in great position to excel when he bats at hitter-friendly Camden Yards against righty Dylan Bundy (career 4.31 FIP, 1.42 WHIP). Also working in Mazara's favor: Baltimore's venue has proven to be especially power-inducing for left-handed batters.

Madison Bumgarner: With a 2.09 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP this season, the left-hander continues to be one of the most effective aces in baseball. Bumgarner has the skills to post a game-changing total in DraftKings contests when he faces a Phillies lineup that ranks 29th in baseball with a .106 ISO against southpaws.

Jacob deGrom: Having produced a lifetime 2.59 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP, the right-hander ranks among the most reliable pitchers in baseball. deGrom could continue to limit the opposition when he works at home against a Yankees lineup that ranks 24th in baseball in OPS vs. righties (.702) and 28th in OPS on the road (.676).

Zinkie on Kemp trade

Adam Wainwright: With a 2.67 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP across his past 10 starts, the right-hander has returned to being a desirable option for DraftKings participants. Wainwright could spin a gem when he faces a Reds lineup that ranks 22nd in baseball with a .707 OPS against righties.

Zach Davies: Having posted a 3.59 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP this season, the right-hander could be a useful second starter in DraftKings contests when he vacates his hitter-friendly home park and works at pitcher-friendly Petco Park against a Padres lineup that ranks 29th in the Majors in OPS vs. righties (.670) and second in total strikeouts (974).

Matt Shoemaker: With a 94-to-11 strikeout-to-walk ratio across his past 13 outings, the right-hander is one of the hottest hurlers in baseball as he heads into a home matchup against an A's lineup that ranks 26th in the Majors with a .699 OPS against righties.

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