Following a busy MLB weekend, the slate is a bit smaller on Monday, June 13. Ten games are scheduled to be played, and every matchup will be held at night. Below is a preview of the day’s action taking a look at the most intriguing games, fantasy analysis, the top rookies and the full schedule of the night.
For a full list of odds on the night’s MLB slate, take a look at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Best Games To Watch
None of Monday night’s games feature two teams facing off with above-.500 records, so you’ll have to dig a bit to find the best matchups. The Atlanta Braves are worth watching the rest of the season because they are finding their stride after a slow start to 2022, and they will bring an 11-game winning streak into a road series with the Washington Nationals at 7:05 p.m. ET.
Alek Manoah has the look of a star as the 24-year-old plays his second MLB season with the Toronto Blue Jays. With a 7-1 record and 1.81 ERA over 11 starts this season, he has a great chance at putting up another big-time performance going against the Baltimore Orioles offense that ranks No. 24 in runs per game and No. 26 in strikeouts per game. Manoah threw 6 scoreless innings in his last time out against the Chicago White Sox.
Rookies to Watch
Arizona Diamondbacks centerfielder Alek Thomas has been of the top rookies in 2022 at just 22 years old heading into Monday night’s matchup with the Cincinnati Reds. He has a five-game hitting streak and recorded 2 hits in the final two games of the weekend series with the Philadelphia Phillies. The Pirates have a decent amount of young talent on their roster as they await the season debut of top prospect Oneil Cruz, but outfielder Jack Suwinski had an eight-game hitting streak till going 0-for-8 in the last three games with the Braves over the weekend as he looks to get back on track.
