The MLB regular season is nearly over, and tonight is one of the final loaded slates. The Underdog Fantasy pick ’em lobby is overflowing with options, but the following five selections are the most exciting.
Tuesday’s Top Underdog Fantasy MLB Pick ‘Em Picks
Braxton Garrett: 29.5 Fantasy Points – Higher
Garrett has done his best work on the road this year. According to FanGraphs, the 26-year-old lefty has a 2.52 ERA, 3.07 xFIP, 1.03 WHIP, 4.7 BB% and 24.0 K%.
Garrett has an OK matchup and decent betting info, too. The Mets are 21st in wRC+ (95) and have a 22.0 K% versus lefties in 2023. New York is also 13th in wRC+ (105) in the previous 30 days but has a 24.0 K%. Finally, per Betting Pros, the Marlins are -130, and the game’s total is only 7.5 runs.
Jorge Soler: 7.5 Fantasy Points – Higher
Soler smashes left-handed pitching. In 365 plate appearances against lefties since 2021, he’s swatted 32 homers with a .347 OBP, .343 ISO and 146 wRC+.
The matchup isn’t too shabby, either. Joey Lucchesi has allowed a .337 wOBA to 149 righties this year.
Edouard Julien: 7.5 Fantasy Points – Higher
The Athletics still haven’t announced a probable starter, but multiple outlets project Paul Blackburn. So, Julien will face a righty at home, and that’s been a recipe for success. In 157 plate appearances against righties at home this year, Julien has hit eight homers and eight doubles with a .446 OBP .281 ISO and 182 wRC+.
Blackburn is also a plus matchup for the rookie second baseman. He’s yielded a .377 wOBA to 109 lefties on the road this year.
Mitch Garver: 1.5 Hits + Runs + RBIs – Higher
Garver is a lefty-killer. In 250 plate appearances against southpaws since 2021, Garver has mashed 12 taters with a .380 OBP, .227 ISO and 142 wRC+. He’s also attached to a loaded offense that smashes lefties. So, he should have ducks on the pond. Finally, Angel Stadium has hitter-friendly park factors.
Yordan Alvarez: 8.5 Fantasy Points – Higher
Alvarez is a firebreathing giant with the platoon advantage on the road. In 155 plate appearances against righties on the road this year, Alvarez has hit 16 bombs with a .465 OBP, .451 ISO and 229 wRC+. It would be nice to have a better matchup tonight, but he can destroy any righty and frequently has.
