DraftKings contributor Matt Meiselman joins The Sweat to give his favorite DraftKings value play for today’s MLB slate.
I’ll go against the chalkiest pitcher on the slate. I don’t think I would play a full Tigers stack against Dylan Cease, but Riley Greene batting at the top of the lineup—$2700, he’s been really good in the majors, has a pretty good prospect pedigree, and Cease is also someone that you can run on and specifically, since Seby Zavala has been the catcher with Yasmani Grandal being injured, the White Sox have been an easier team to run on this season, especially when Dylan Cease is on the mound. So Greene I think could steal a base here. He’s a good hitter anyway, and he’s really cheap. And then you also get the leverage element out of him too.
Matt’s Pick: Riley Greene ($2,700)
