MLB Price Check: Christian Yelich, Zack Wheeler, and more DFS plays plus best bets on the MLB slate

Friday’s MLB slate features plenty of appetizing matchups, including a storied baseball rivalry. Here’s a look at the MLB schedule for June 4.

Best Games To Watch

Red Sox vs. Yankees is the headline game, but Mets vs. Padres might be the best contest among contending teams this season. Bryce Harper going against his former team when the Phillies meet the Nationals is also a good contest.

Fantasy Spotlight

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had a fantastic May, hitting .302 with nine home runs and 22 RBI. He really tore it up in the last two weeks, smashing six home runs. The Blue Jays face an Astros team ranked 10th in home runs allowed, meaning Guerrero could be in a for a big game.

Rookies to Watch

Yermin Mercedes and Akil Baddoo should draw some eyeballs when the Tigers take on the White Sox. Mercedes is a free spirit who is hitting .304 with seven home runs while Baddoo has been steadily improving for Detroit.
