We have five games today with the first pitch at 6:40 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Vladimir Guerrero Jr and the Toronto Blue Jays, taking on Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees in New York. The highest implied run totals tonight sit with the Atlanta Braves (5.5), Philadelphia Phillies (5.0), and the Baltimore Orioles (4.7).

There is a 25 percent chance of rain at game time for the game between the Yankees and the Blue Jays, so keep an eye on that game as it could be delayed or postponed.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 9/09/21 (using DraftKings Values)

 PitcherMarcus Stroman $9,400
 First BasePete Alonso $4,800
 Second BaseMarcus Semien $5,300
 Third BaseRonald Torreyes $3,700
 Short Stop   
 OutfieldBryce Harper $6,300

Marcus Stroman – P ($9,400) – This season, Stroman has been nothing if not consistent. He hasn’t given up more than three runs in a start in his last six starts, and this is a good spot tonight going against the Marlins in Miami.

Pete Alonso – C  ($4,800) – Alonso has hits in eight straight games with multi-hit games in three of his last four games, with three doubles and three home runs in those four games.

Marcus Semien – 2B  ($5,300) – We are going back to Semien again tonight. He has his third straight multi-hit game last night and he has a home run in five of his last seven games.

Ronald Torreyes – 3B ($3,700) – Torreyes has hits in three of his last four games, and with the Phillies facing a Rockies team that gives up a lot of runs, it won’t be a surprise for him to have a nice night for the Phillies.

Bryce Harper – OF ($6,300) Harper has hits in five straight games and a home run in three of his last four starts. This is a good matchup for him tonight and the Phillies facing the Rockies at home so look for runs to be scored in this game.

The Pitchers

Ranger Suárez ($8,400 DK) In Suárez’s last three starts he has only given up two total runs while striking out six batters on average. Colorado’s offence isn’t as good on the road, and this should lead to another good start from Suárez.

Jesús Luzardo ($6,700) – Luzardo has had his ups and downs this season, but he will be facing a Mets team that gets on base against left-handed pitching just 30 percent of the time, and he will be pitching at home in the spacious Marlins Park. You’re getting him at a big discount which will allow you to get some big bats into your lineup.

The Value Players

Rafael Marchán – C  ($3,400) – In Marchán’s starts he has been productive and with the Phillies facing the poor pitching of the Rockies at home, he could be a useful value play.

Nicky Lopez – SS ($3,700) – We got a useful start from Lopez last night with two hits including a double. With the Royals still in Baltimore, he is worth another look tonight especially with how well Lopez hits left-handed pitching.

Austin Hayes- OF ($3,200) – The price on Hays is almost silly. He has a 15-game hitting streak, and he has a double and two home runs in his last four games. That is a lot of production for $3,200.

The Stacks

Philadelphia Phillies – If you have read this far you can see that I like the Phillies tonight with Harper, Torreyes and Marchán, but you can also add in Jean Segura as well if you’re looking to make a bigger stack with the short slate tonight.

Toronto Blue Jays – Vegas doesn’t seem to like the Blue Jays tonight, but with how deep their lineup is, they are worth a look. We talked about how well Semien is playing, and if you can find the budget you can add Vladimir Guerrero Jr and Teoscar Hernandez.
