MLB DFS: Top DraftKings and FanDuel daily Fantasy baseball picks, lineup advice for Friday, July 22, 2022

Major League Baseball returns to a full slate of games on Friday, after Thursday was used to catch up on things with a few doubleheaders and make-up games. The Chicago White Sox host the Cleveland Guardians in a weekend series with implications in both the AL Central and AL Wild Card chase. One of the players that could step up in the series opener and for MLB DFS lineups is Cleveland shortstop Amed Rosario, who went into the All-Star break on a seven-game hitting streak.

Rosario is 6-for-15 with a triple against White Sox probable starting pitcher Lucas Giolito. He also has 13 total hits with four doubles and four RBI over his last seven appearances overall. Chicago third baseman Yoan Moncada could be another name to target in the MLB DFS player pool, as he is just one of two current White Sox players with a home run against Cleveland starter Cal Quantrill. Before you make your MLB DFS picks for Friday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure is a daily Fantasy pro who has won over $2 million in his career. And when it comes to daily Fantasy baseball, McClure is at his best. Recognized in the book “Fantasy Football (and Baseball) for Smart People: How to Turn Your Hobby into a Fortune” as a top MLB DFS player, McClure’s proprietary projection model simulates each game 10,000 times, taking factors such as matchups and recent results into account. This allows him to find the best values on every site.

On Thursday, McClure highlighted Yankees infielder DJ LeMahieu as one of his top MLB DFS picks on DraftKings and FanDuel. The result: LeMahieu hit a home run and walked twice in the Yankees’ early game against Houston to return 18 points on DraftKings and 24.7 points on FanDuel. Anybody that included him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, as the 2022 MLB season continues, McClure has locked in his top MLB daily Fantasy picks for Friday, July 22. Head to SportsLine now to see them.

McClure’s top MLB DFS picks for Friday, July 22, 2022

For Friday, one of McClure’s MLB DFS picks is Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, who is listed at $6,200 on DraftKings and $4,600 on FanDuel. Judge had mixed results in the Yankees’ doubleheader on Thursday, with just a walk in Game 1, but followed that with a three-run home run and two runs scored in the second. Although he came away empty-handed in the All-Star Game on Tuesday, over his last four starts for New York, Judge has hit .500 with an incredible 1.897 OPS.

The Yankees move on from the Astros to begin a new series with Baltimore on Friday and start things off against Tyler Wells, who has already pitched against New York three times this season. In seven at bats against Wells this year, Judge has four hits with a double and is slugging .714. Wells has otherwise been solid against the Yankees this season, but has been a bit shaky in his last two starts, giving up six runs and 12 hits in just 9.2 innings pitched.

Another part of McClure’s optimal MLB DFS strategy includes rostering Blue Jays catcher Alejandro Kirk ($4,700 on DraftKings and $2,900 on FanDuel). Kirk is on a six-game hitting streak, and has nine total hits with a double, a home run and four RBI during that stretch. For the season, Kirk is hitting .315 with a .882 OPS and 37 RBI.

The Blue Jays travel to Boston for a three-game series on Friday, and start things off against Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, who has fared well against Toronto in two previous starts this year. Kirk has seen Eovaldi five times in those appearances and came away with a pair of hits. In five previous games played at Fenway Park in his career, Kirk has offensive splits of .385/.429/.385 and has 29 RBI against right-handed starting pitchers like Eovaldi this year.

How to set your MLB DFS lineups for Friday, July 22, 2022 

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Friday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won’t break the bank. You can only see who it is here.
