The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle mariners will play Wednesday at 4:10 p.m. ET. Righty Dylan Bundy will face the Mariners right-handed hurler Taijuan Walker. 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 Picks

Dylan Bundy, P, Angels: $16,500

Is Bundy’s decent start to the season a mirage? Probably, but facing the Mariners again gives him a good shot at keeping his strikeout numbers high. He fanned eight in six innings when they last met. He also took the loss after giving up a three-run home run to Jose Marmolejos, but still managed a 19.9 DK points game.

Utility Picks

Brian Goodwin, OF, Angels: $6,400

Walker has two starts with one being masterful and the other a big clunker. Who we get in this game is hard to tell, but I like Goodwin’s upside going against a righty. So far this season he has a 1.073 OPS, .292 ISO and .455 wOBA against righties this season.

Kyle Seager, 3B, Mariners: $8,000

Seager hit a three-run home run last night off of righty Julio Teheran last night and has heated up a bit of late. He’s hitting right-handers well with two homers, four doubles and 11 RBIs so far this season.

Mike Trout, OF, Angels: $10,800

Mike Trout has faced Taijuan Walker 14 times and has nine hits and five strike outs. Three of those hits were home runs and another was a triple. We know what Trout can do of course and Walker has had trouble getting him out in the past.
