DraftKings MLB Lineup Advice: Monday (5/20)

Yoan Moncada has been terrorizing righties this season

Time to start another work week with an eight-game MLB slate on Monday night. The slate has a lot of strong pitching options to consider. Some have higher floors and some have higher upside but a pair of youngsters top my list for cash games on this slate. On the hitting side, there is plenty of mid-range value of big-name bats with good matchups and big upside potential. Let’s dig in!

As always, be sure to pay close attention to the lineups when they are released and monitor the weather leading up to game time. For reference throughout the season, be sure to bookmark our overview of MLB Park Factors and how to Use Weather to Your Advantage in MLB DFS.

Pitchers

Chris Paddack (SD): $9,500 vs. ARI
My favorite two pitcher combinations on DraftKings for Monday’s slate is either a Patrick Corbin/J.A. Happ pairing or Chris Paddack/Mike Soroka. The Corbin/Happ combo might have a little higher upside, but I also think it comes with more risk, so give me Paddack/Soroka in cash games. Paddack has pitched great this season with a 28.5% strikeout rate and sub-2.00 ERA. He has been even better at home which is where he will face the visiting Diamondback on Monday night as a Vegas favorite in a matchup with the lowest run total on the slate.
