We have eleven games on the slate today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Vladimir Guerrero Jr and the Toronto Blue Jays taking on Rafael Devers and the Boston Red Sox.

We have a chance of rain for a few more games today with Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners, and Baltimore Orioles at Oakland Athletics all having a 20 percent chance of rain or better.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 4/19/22 (using DraftKings Values)

PitcherJoe Musgrove$8,600
First Base   
Second Base  
Third BaseManny Machado$4,600
Short Stop  
OutfieldSeiya Suzuki$5,100

Joe Musgrove ($8,600) – It has been a great start to the season for Musgrove who has given up just two runs in his first two starts while accumulating 14 strikeouts. He certainly has as much upside as any pitcher on today’s slate, and he won’t come with as high of a price tag.

Manny Machado ($4,600) – Machado has always been a player who has hit left-handed pitching well, and he will face a Reds starter today who is yet to throw 50 innings in MLB so this should be a nice spot to get Machado.

Seiya Suzuki ($5,100) – Suzuki continues to get it done for the Cubs with five hits in his last three games including a home run and a double. He isn’t likely to see really tough pitching from the Rays today who appear to be planning to use their bullpen heavily today.

The Pitchers

Corbin Burnes ($10,500 DK) We got exactly what we expected from Burnes in his last start going six innings giving up no runs while striking out eight batters. I would expect more of that from Burnes today in what is a really nice matchup against the Pirates.

Cole Irvin ($6,300 DK) – This is a winnable game for the Athletics, so if you’re looking to balance out a more expensive pitcher like Burnes playing someone like Irvin can pay off. He isn’t likely to get you 20 points, but he could certainly get you to 10+ and at his price that is good value.

Chris Archer ($5,400 DK) – Archer is going to be more of a GPP play, but if you’re looking to load up bats today, he isn’t a bad bet. He is facing a Royals team that is really struggling to score runs, and Archer wasn’t bad in his first start going four innings while striking our three batters and not giving up any runs.

The Value Plays

Nick Solak ($3,800) – So far in Solak’s career, he has hit left-handed pitching well, and while Robbie Ray might have been an intimidating pitcher last year, he hasn’t had a great start to this season, so this should be a good opportunity to get Solak into your lineup.

Alec Bohm ($3,800) – Bohm continues to produce, and as long as he is hitting the ball hard he is worth taking a look at his current pricing with the Phillies playing at Coors Field.

Daulton Varsho ($3,600) – While the Diamondbacks are no offensive juggernaut, you are going to get their leadoff hitter who has hits in five straight games, with a home run and a steal in that stretch for less than 4K.

The Stacks

Philadelphia Phillies – To no one surprise the Phillies have the highest implied run total yet again today in Colorado. We continue to be Bohm at his price and with him, you should be able to get either Rhys Hoskins or Kyle Schwarber into your lineup and add Jean Segura to them as well or if you are willing to take some discounts at the pitcher spot you could get Castellanos or Harper into your lineup.

Milwaukee Brewers – We had the right team yesterday, but not the right players with the Brewers. Today, I would look at Kolton Wong, Willy Adames, and Andrew McCutchen, and you could look at paying up for Christian Yelich, but it is rare that players have big days consecutively.

Boston Red Sox – For the Reds today, I would look to stack Rafael Devers with Xander Bogaerts, and Alex Verdugo to give you a nice piece of the top of the Red Sox lineup who is facing a Toronto starter in Yusei Kikuchi who struggled in his first start.
