Welcome to today’s MLB DFS Top Hitters preview! We’re diving into the key players who are poised to make a significant impact on today’s slate. With a combination of favorable matchups and strong recent performance, these hitters should be at the top of your DFS lineup.

Let’s break down the top 3 hitters and highlight two under-the-radar plays that could give you the edge.

Top 3 DFS Hitters

1. Pete Alonso, New York Mets

Matchup: Patrick Corbin (LHP) vs. Washington Nationals

  • Stats vs. LHP: .293 ISO, .378 xwOBA
  • Corbin’s Weaknesses: 14.5% K rate vs. RHB, .209 ISO allowed

Pete Alonso is set up for a big day against Patrick Corbin, who has struggled mightily against right-handed hitters. Alonso’s power against lefties is well-documented, with a .293 ISO and .378 xwOBA this season. Corbin’s low strikeout rate and high ISO allowed to righties make this an ideal matchup for Alonso to flex his power.

2. Corey Seager, Texas Rangers

Matchup: Griffin Canning (RHP) vs. Los Angeles Angels

  • Stats vs. RHP: .300 ISO, .431 xwOBA
  • Canning’s Weaknesses: 14.5% K rate vs. LHB, .228 ISO allowed

Corey Seager has been crushing right-handed pitching all season, and today’s matchup against Griffin Canning looks particularly juicy. Canning’s inability to strike out left-handed batters combined with a high ISO allowed makes Seager a top play. His .431 xwOBA against righties underscores his consistent ability to get on base and produce.

3. Yordan Alvarez, Houston Astros

Matchup: Bryan Hoeing (RHP) vs. Miami Marlins

  • Stats vs. RHP: .298 ISO, .447 xwOBA
  • Hoeing’s Weaknesses: 18.6% K rate vs. LHB, .267 ISO allowed

Yordan Alvarez is in an excellent spot today against Bryan Hoeing, who has struggled significantly against left-handed hitters. Alvarez’s .298 ISO and .447 xwOBA against righties make him a premium play. Hoeing’s high ISO allowed and average strikeout rate will likely be exploited by Alvarez’s powerful bat.

Under-the-Radar Plays

1. Austin Riley, Atlanta Braves

Matchup: Slade Cecconi (RHP) vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

  • Stats vs. RHP: .211 ISO, .359 xwOBA
  • Cecconi’s Weaknesses: 15.7% K rate vs. LHB, 1.7 HR/9

Austin Riley has been quietly putting together a strong season, particularly against right-handed pitching. Slade Cecconi’s high home run rate and low strikeout rate make him an appealing target for Riley, who boasts a .359 xwOBA against righties. Riley’s ability to hit for power and get on base makes him a valuable under-the-radar option.

2. Spencer Steer, Cincinnati Reds

Matchup: Kyle Freeland (LHP) vs. Colorado Rockies

  • Stats vs. LHP: .230 ISO, .348 xwOBA
  • Freeland’s Weaknesses: 10.4% K rate vs. RHB, .219 ISO allowed

Spencer Steer has shown great power against left-handed pitching this season, and today’s matchup against Kyle Freeland is very favorable. Freeland’s extremely low strikeout rate against right-handers and high ISO allowed make Steer a strong candidate for a breakout game. His ability to capitalize on Freeland’s weaknesses puts him on the radar as a sneaky DFS play.


Today’s MLB DFS slate offers some excellent hitting opportunities. Pete Alonso, Corey Seager, and Yordan Alvarez headline our top plays, each with favorable matchups that highlight their strengths. For those looking for under-the-radar options, Austin Riley and Spencer Steer present intriguing potential with their solid metrics and advantageous matchups.

Good luck with your lineups, and may your DFS picks lead you to victory!
