The Miami Marlins and Baltimore Orioles will play Wednesday at 5:05 p.m. ET. Righty Elieser Hernandez will face righty Alex Cobb in Camden Yards. DraftKings will have Showdown DFS contests available for the matchup. We break down the ideal lineup strategy below, and you can play here.

Captain’s Pick

Renato Nunez, 1B/3B, Team: $14,400

Hernandez allowed an insane 2.19 HR/9 last season and was even worse on the road. Camden Yards isn’t the place you want to give up fly balls. Nunez has two home runs so far and is batting a .430 wOBA and .333 ISO against righties so far this season.

Utility Picks

Pedro Severino, C, Orioles: $6,800

Severino hit a three-run homer against Hernandez in his only game against him last season and has a couple home runs this season. He has hit righties better than usual this year, with a .383 wOBA and a .222 ISO.

Rio Ruiz, 3B, Orioles: $5,200

Ruiz missed yesterday’s game with shoulder soreness, but is listed as day to day. If he is in the lineup today, he’s been hitting too well to keep out of yours. He has three home runs and seven RBIs through six games on the season.

Jesus Aguilar, 1B, Marlins: $7,800

Aguilar hit his third home run of the season yesterday and the Marlins have only played four games. He hits righties better than lefties and will be hitting in a home run friendly park once again. Let’s see if he can keep the longballs flying.
