Today's MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Wednesday, June 12

SP: Brandon Woodruff, Brewers @ Astros. The Astros lineup is still missing some key pieces, and while the young prospects are producing, that lineup is still not as imposing as it would be with George Springer, Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve. Woodruff has been very strong this season, and I like the price, especially on DK.

C: Mitch Garver, Twins vs. Mariners. Do not be fooled by seeing Gerson Bautista listed as the starter for the Mariners tonight because he is just the opener, likely pitching an inning. In relief will be southpaw Tommy Milone, and that is where we feast tonight. Garver is expensive, but he is also hitting .400 with an OPS of 1.232 against LHPs this season. Stacking Twins will be popular, but Garver could go overlooked.

1B: Rhys Hoskins, Phillies vs. Diamondbacks. Hoskins is having a nice week, hitting .304 with a home run and five RBIs during the stretch. Righties have done better against Merrill Kelly this season, hitting .273 with an OPS of .816.

2B: Dee Gordon, Mariners @ Twins. This isn't the best matchup for Gordon, but if he gets on base he will run, having swiped 10 of his 12 bags against RHPs this season. I won't pay for him on DK, but on FD I think he is a decent punt.

SS: Fernando Tatis Jr., Padres @ Giants. The kid is a superstar, and I think we need to attack his price on FD tonight. Against RHP he is hitting .317 with an OPS of .934, clubbing seven of his eight home runs and stealing five of his seven stolen bases.

3B: Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays @ Orioles. O's starter David Hess has allowed 20 home runs this season -- 17 to righties. Vladdy has light-tower power, and while the batting average leaves much to be desired, it almost seems like I should make it a lock that he homers.

OF: Yordan Alvarez, Astros @ Brewers. The kid has homered in both games since being called up. Power is his game, and that has been the case. I don't love the Astros tonight as a team, but as a one-off play I love the price.
