We have seven games on the slate today with the first pitch at 7:05 PM EST. Today’s slate of games is highlighted by Wander Franco and the Tampa Bay Rays taking on Seiya Suzuki and the Chicago Cubs.

We have a chance of rain for a few more games today with Tampa Bay Rays at Chicago Cubs and the Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals both games have a 20 percent chance of rain or better.

Here is a selection of today’s Core Players 50-50 MLB DFS lineup for 4/20/22 (using DraftKings Values)

PitcherLogan Gilbert$9,800
First Base Ty France$4,500
Second Base  
Third Base  
Short Stop  
OutfieldAlex Verdugo$4,100

Logan Gilbert ($9,800) – Gilbert has been a stud in his first two starts on the road for the Mariners, giving up just one earned run in those two starts combined and striking out 11 batters. He will get to pitch at home in a pitcher-friendly park today against a Rangers team that has been average offensively so far this year, so he should be worth his cost today.

Ty France ($4,500) – France has hits in three of his last four games, with a home run and a double. He gets a really nice matchup today against the Rangers, and he is priced in a way that makes him easy to get in your lineup.

Alex Verdugo ($4,100) – Coming into today’s game, Verdugo has hits in five straight games, including two home runs and a double. The pitcher he is facing, José Berríos has had his struggles so far so this could be another nice game for Verdugo.

The Pitchers

José Berríos ($7,300 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.

Erick Fedde ($8,300 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 Paddack ($5,900 DK) – The play with Paddack is much like the one was yesterday with Archer. He is so cheap, and the Royals offense has been so bad, that you can live with four innings with a few strikeouts as long as he doesn’t give up a lot of runs.

The Value Plays

Jarred Kelenic ($3,300) – It looks like Kelenic might be starting to figure things out. In his last five games, he has two multi-hit games, two home runs, a double, and a stolen base.

Hunter Dozier ($3,000) – With Dozier hitting a home run in back-to-back games, and Minnesota not having the strongest pitching staff, Dozier is worth a look at this price.

Seth Beer ($3,300) – Beer comes into today with hits in four straight starts, seven total in those four games. We haven’t seen a lot of power with just a pair of doubles, but if he keeps hitting the ball hard the power should come.

The Stacks

Minnesota Twins – With a matchup against the Royals the Twins are worth a look. I would want to stack the top of their order with Jorge Polanco, Carlos Correa, and Gio Urshela.

Seattle Mariners – We are still getting great prices on the Mariners’ young stars with Kelenic and Julio Rodriguez. We also talked about Ty France, and you could also use Jesse Winker.

Toronto Blue Jays – The Blue Jays are always tough to stack, but right now I would be looking to get Bo Bichette, with Matt Chapman, and Zack Collins who has been hitting well and is a nice low priced catcher option.
