The early slate for Sunday, June 6th will showcase some of the best stars in baseball, and we’ll take a look at the best players you can enter into your DFS lineup as well as those who could provide solid value.

Top Pitchers

Corbin Burnes, Diamondbacks vs. Brewers ($11,000) — Corbin Burnes is playing like one of the best pitchers in baseball right now, and he is going up against an Arizona team that is the worst in the league. Through nine starts, Burnes is just 2-4 but has a 2.24 ERA.

Trevor Bauer, Dodgers vs. Braves ($10,700) — Trevor Bauer is the second-highest priced player in this slate, and he’s been a fantastic addition to the Dodgers’ rotation. Through 12 starts, he has a 2.24 ERA and 6-3 record.

Top Hitters

Ronald Acuna Jr., Dodgers vs. Braves ($5,800) — Ronald Acuna Jr. has been a strong player at the top of the Braves’ lineup this season. He is tied for second in the MLB with 17 home runs and has gotten on base at least once in each of his last 15 games.

Trea Turner, Nationals vs. Phillies ($5,800) — Trea Turner is tied for the highest-priced hitter and for good reason. He is hitting .309 this season and has had a hit in each of his last five games.

Value Pitcher

Caleb Smith, Diamondbacks vs. Brewers ($7,000) — After doing all of his work out of the bullpen, Caleb Smith is making his second start of the season. In his previous start on June 1st, he allowed two runs on five hits with four strikeouts.

Value Hitter

Christian Yelich, Diamondbacks vs. Brewers ($5,400) — Christian Yelich appears to have found his stride at the plate recently and is returning to the MVP-caliber player we’ve seen in his career. He has a hit in each of his last five games and had two home runs over his last three games.
