Dodgers set to deliver offensive firepower

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 Monday.

Carlos Correa: From the heart of the lineup, the shortstop could drive in multiple runs when he brings his lifetime .863 OPS against right-handers (.776 vs. lefties) into a matchup with righty Tyler Duffey (career 5.04 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) and a Twins bullpen that ranks 23rd in the Majors with a 4.28 ERA. Correa could also swipe a base against catcher Kurt Suzuki, who sometimes struggles to thwart would-be base stealers.

Jason Castro: As a big leaguer, the catcher has posted a .176 ISO against right-handers that exceeds his .095 mark vs. lefties. Castro could provide cost-effective production at a premium position when he faces the right-handed Duffey and a Twins squad that ranks 29th in baseball with a .670 defensive efficiency ratio.

Stephen Piscotty: With a lifetime .333/.418/.597 slash line against left-handers, the second-year outfielder is quickly becoming one of the best in baseball during those matchups. Piscotty could thrive when he takes on rookie southpaw Cody Reed (7.30 ERA, 1.80 WHIP) and a Reds relief corps that ranks 29th in the Majors with a 5.08 ERA.

Piscotty's solo home run

Jedd Gyorko: Eligible at second base and third base in DraftKings contests, Gyorko could excel when he takes his lifetime 109 wRC+ against left-handers (90 vs. righties) into a matchup with the inexperienced Reed (6.15 FIP) and an unreliable Reds relief corps.

Corey Seager: The second-year shortstop will be in prime position to improve on his lifetime 155 wRC+ against right-handers (119 vs. lefties) when he tangles with rookie righty Zach Eflin (4.77 ERA, 1.3 HR/9 rate) and a Phillies squad that is tied for 25th in baseball with a .680 defensive efficiency ratio.

Justin Turner: Hitting .346 with six homers across 81 at-bats since the All-Star break, the third baseman will bring a red-hot bat and a lifetime .822 OPS against right-handers (.706 vs. lefties) into a matchup against the inexperienced righty Eflin (4.88 FIP).

Turner's two-run homer

Adrian Gonzalez: With only nine homers across 384 at-bats this season, the first baseman could have a reasonable price tag in DraftKings contests when he brings his lifetime .223 ISO against right-handers (.155 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the right-handed Eflin and a Phillies bullpen that ranks 25th in baseball with a 4.37 ERA.

Josh Reddick: The newest addition to the Dodgers outfield could drive in multiple runs from the heart of the lineup when he brings his lifetime 114 wRC+ against right-handers (82 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the right-handed Eflin and an unreliable Phillies relief corps.

Chris Davis: Hitting .121 since the All-Star break, the first baseman could have a reduced price tag in DraftKings contests when he brings his lifetime .263 ISO against right-handers (.211 vs. lefties) into a matchup with A's righty Kendall Graveman (career 4.25 ERA, 1.40 WHIP).

Jonathan Schoop: With 17 homers and 59 RBIs across 414 at-bats this season, the second baseman ranks among the most powerful players at his premium position. Schoop could have a great game when he takes his lifetime .762 OPS against right-handers (.608 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the right-handed Graveman (4.46 ERA, 1.41 WHIP in 2016).

Schoop's RBI single

Scooter Gennett: The second baseman owns lopsided lifetime splits, with a 109 wRC+ against right-handers that exceeds his 26 mark vs. lefties. Gennett could provide cost-effective production at a premium position when he faces rookie righty Rob Whalen (one career start) and a Braves bullpen that ranks 21st in baseball with a 4.03 ERA.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis: With 10 homers and eight steals across 294 plate appearances, the outfielder has been a cost-effective addition to many 2016 DraftKings squads. Nieuwenhuis could contribute in multiple ways when he brings his lifetime .741 OPS against right-handers (.481 vs. lefties) into a matchup at his hitter-friendly home park against the inexperienced Whalen, who allowed four runs across five innings in his initial big league outing.

Zach Davies: Having posted a 3.57 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP, the right-hander has been a productive second starter in many 2016 DraftKings contests. Davies could post a substantial DraftKings total when he faces a Braves lineup that ranks last in the Majors in ISO vs. righties (.122) and total home runs (70).

Davies' solid outing

Kevin Gausman: The right-hander could deliver a stellar start when he vacates his hitter-friendly home park and works at offense-suppressing Oakland Coliseum against an A's lineup that ranks 25th in the Majors with a .702 OPS vs. righties. Gausman could also see his chances of securing a win enhanced by an Orioles bullpen that ranks third in baseball with a 3.10 ERA.

Michael Wacha: Set to work at his pitcher-friendly home park against a Reds lineup that ranks 22nd in baseball in OPS vs. righties (.711) and 26th in OPS on the road (.684), the right-hander could post a difference-making DraftKings total on Monday.

R.A. Dickey: With a 4.49 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP this season, the right-hander could have a reasonable price tag in DraftKings contests when he faces a Rays lineup that ranks 21st in the Majors in OPS vs. righties (.714) and fourth in total strikeouts (987).

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