Orioles bats primed to provide production

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 Sunday.

Todd Frazier: With 38 homers across 554 at-bats, the third baseman has been one of the most powerful players in baseball this season. Frazier could rip another round-tripper when he faces Indians fly-ball-prone righty Josh Tomlin (4.61 ERA, 2.0 HR/9 rate in 2016).

Jose Abreu: Hitting .297 with 25 homers and 96 RBIs across 593 at-bats, the first baseman continues to be one of the most reliable hitters in baseball. Abreu could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he faces Tomlin, who owns a lifetime 1.6 HR/9 rate.

Abreu clubs homer No. 25

Miguel Cabrera: With a .307 average, 34 homers and 94 RBIs, Cabrera is putting the finishing touches on another fantastic season. Having recorded a .321/.389/.562 slash line vs. righties during his accomplished career, the 33-year-old is positioned to excel vs. Royals right-hander Edinson Volquez (5.25 ERA, 1.51 WHIP in 2016).

Chris Davis: With 85 homers since the outset of 2015, the first baseman is arguably the most powerful player in baseball. Davis could put another ball into the outfield seats at his hitter-friendly home park when he faces rookie righty Braden Shipley (5.49 ERA, 1.56 WHIP) and a D-backs bullpen that ranks last in baseball with a 5.07 ERA.

Jonathan Schoop: Having compiled 24 homers across 586 at-bats this season, the second baseman has proven to be one of the most powerful players at his premium position. Schoop could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he brings his lifetime 102 wRC+ against right-handers (57 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the rookie righty Shipley (5.81 FIP) and a D-backs squad that ranks 29th in the Majors with a .666 defensive efficiency ratio.

Zinkie on top fantasy hitters

Adam Jones: The outfielder owns notable splits this season, with an .830 OPS against right-handers in comparison to a .562 mark vs. lefties. Jones could be part of a productive lineup against the right-handed Shipley on Sunday, as the Orioles rank third in baseball in OPS vs. righties (.786) and seventh in OPS at home (.779).

Joey Votto: With an overall .407/.491/.633 slash line since the All-Star break, the first baseman will bring a hot bat and a lifetime .317/.435/.549 slash line against right-handers into a matchup with Brewers righty Wily Peralta (5.21 ERA, 1.57 WHIP in 2016). In his career, Peralta has allowed left-handed hitters such as Votto to post an .820 OPS (.710 OPS allowed to righty batters).

Carlos Correa: This season, the second-year shortstop has registered an .838 OPS against right-handers in comparison to a .754 mark vs. lefties. From the heart of the lineup, Correa could drive in multiple runs when he faces Angels rookie righty Daniel Wright (7.48 ERA, 1.81 WHIP).

Zinkie on top fantasy pitchers

Stephen Vogt: The catcher will be in position to provide production at a premium position when he brings his lifetime .757 OPS against right-handers (.619 vs. lefties) into a matchup with righty Colby Lewis (career 4.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) and a Rangers relief corps that ranks 25th in baseball with a 4.56 ERA.

Brandon Guyer: The outfielder has logged lopsided splits this season, with a 1.010 OPS against left-handers in comparison to a .624 mark vs. righties. Guyer could reach base often or score multiple runs when he faces White Sox southpaw Carlos Rodon (career 4.03 ERA, 1.45 WHIP).

Mike Napoli: Having compiled 34 homers and 100 RBIs across 538 at-bats, the first baseman has been one of the most productive players in the American League this season. Napoli could produce a notable DraftKings total when he brings his lifetime 142 wRC+ against left-handers (116 vs. righties) into a matchup with the left-handed Rodon (4.29 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 2016).

Napoli's RBI single

Curtis Granderson: Hitting leadoff, the outfielder could reach base often and score multiple runs when he brings his lifetime 128 wRC+ against right-handers (88 vs. lefties) into a matchup with rookie righty Jake Thompson (5.62 ERA, 1.47 WHIP) and a Phillies bullpen that ranks 26th in baseball with a 4.61 ERA.

Jay Bruce: As a big leaguer, the outfielder has produced a 113 wRC+ against right-handers in comparison to a 90 mark vs. lefties. Bruce could add to his impressive 2016 totals of 29 homers and 91 RBIs across 514 at-bats when he tangles with the rookie righty Thompson (5.95 FIP) and an unreliable Phillies bullpen.

Buster Posey: With a lifetime .325/.389/.552 slash line against left-handers, the catcher has proven to be one of the best during those matchups. Posey could provide elite production at a premium position when he faces southpaw Clayton Richard (career 4.22 ERA, 1.41 WHIP) and a Padres bullpen that is tied for 23rd in baseball with a 4.14 ERA.

Zinkie picks two-start pitchers

Robert Gsellman: Having posted a 3.54 ERA across five starts since joining the rotation on Aug. 28, the right-hander has been a key part of the Mets' postseason push. Gsellman could continue to excel when he faces a Phillies lineup that ranks 28th in baseball with a .693 OPS against righties.

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