Arrieta, Kluber are arms to grab on Saturday

Mets at Coors, Miggy, Papi and Crush Davis also worth picking up

May 14th, 2016

Welcome to DraftKings fantasy baseball, the Official Daily Fantasy Game of Major League Baseball.

The players listed below could provide difference-making stats for DraftKings participants on Saturday.

Jason Kipnis: Hitting out of a premium lineup spot, the second baseman could reach base often or score multiple runs when he brings his lifetime .811 OPS against right-handers (.655 vs. lefties) into a matchup with Twins righty Ervin Santana (career 4.16 ERA, 1.29 WHIP). Kipnis could also swipe a base against catcher Kurt Suzuki, who sometimes struggles to stop would-be base stealers.

:: Fred Zinkie's Daily Picks ::

Eric Hosmer: Since the outset of 2015, the first baseman has logged an impressive .324/.391/.510 slash line against right-handers. From the cleanup spot, Hosmer could thrive against righty Mike Foltynewicz (career 5.59 ERA, 1.60 WHIP) and a Braves bullpen that ranks 27th in baseball with a 4.62 ERA.

Lucas Duda: The first baseman will be poised to display his power when he brings his lifetime .843 OPS against right-handers (.656 vs. lefties) into a matchup with righty Eddie Butler (career 5.76 ERA, 1.71 WHIP) at homer-happy Coors Field. Duda could also excel late in the game against a Rockies relief corps that sits 28th in baseball with a 4.81 ERA.

Curtis Granderson: Hitting leadoff, the outfielder may maximize his opportunities to reach base and score runs at the expense of the righty Butler (career 5.64 FIP) and an unreliable Rockies bullpen. In his career, Granderson has posted an .857 OPS against right-handers that exceeds his .696 mark vs. lefties.

Michael Conforto: Since debuting on July 24, 2015, Conforto has produced a .923 OPS against right-handers in comparison to a .409 mark vs. lefties. The outfielder could thrive against the right-handed Butler, who in his career has allowed left-handed batters to post a 1.072 OPS (.789 OPS allowed to righty batters).

Neil Walker: As a big leaguer, the second baseman has produced a .798 OPS against right-handers that exceeds his .671 mark vs. lefties. Walker -- who has hit nine homers across 118 at-bats this season -- could go deep when he tangles with the righty Butler and a shaky relief corps at Colorado's hitter-friendly park.

Miguel Cabrera: Cabrera has combined elite power and patience to post an impressive career .322/.389/.561 slash line against right-handers. The first baseman could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he bats at homer-happy Camden Yards against righty Mike Wright (career 5.96 ERA, 1.53 WHIP).

Michael Saunders: Saunders has long fared best vs. right-handers, against whom he has produced a lifetime .716 OPS (.658 vs. lefties). The outfielder could thrive against Rangers righty Colby Lewis (career 4.75 ERA, 1.36 WHIP), who in his career has allowed left-handed batters to post an .816 OPS (.730 OPS allowed to righty batters).

Jayson Werth: The outfielder will be in position to excel when he brings his lifetime .932 OPS against left-handers (.786 vs. righties) into a matchup with Marlins southpaw Justin Nicolino (career 4.79 FIP). Werth may be part of a productive lineup, as the Nationals rank third in baseball with an .854 OPS against lefties.

Danny Espinosa: Hitting .210 this season, the shortstop could be a cost-effective option at a premium position when he brings his lifetime .780 OPS against left-handers (.659 vs. righties) into a matchup with the southpaw Nicolino (career 26-to-26 strikeout-to-walk ratio).

Chris Davis: With 135 homers since the outset of 2013, the first baseman is arguably the most powerful slugger in baseball. Davis -- who has logged a .263/.373/.593 slash line against right-handers since the outset of 2013 -- could go deep or drive in multiple runs when he bats at his hitter-friendly home park against Tigers righty Anibal Sanchez (5.89 ERA, 1.64 WHIP in 2016).

Pedro Alvarez: Hitting .214 with two homers across 70 at-bats this season, the left-handed slugger could have a reduced cost in DraftKings contests when he brings his lifetime .794 OPS against right-handers (.594 vs. lefties) into a matchup with the righty Sanchez (5.20 FIP in 2016). Also working in Alvarez's favor: Camden Yards has proven to be especially homer-happy for lefty batters.

David Ortiz: Much of the slugger's impressive career resume has been built on a lofty lifetime .293/.397/.581 slash line against right-handers. Ortiz -- who has posted a 1.074 OPS this season -- could have a great game when he hits at home against Astros righty Collin McHugh (5.50 ERA, 1.63 WHIP in 2016).

Jake Lamb: The third-year third baseman, who has logged a lifetime .761 OPS against right-handers (.538 mark vs. lefties), could drive in multiple runs off righty Jake Peavy (8.47 ERA, 1.91 WHIP in 2016). Also of note: Lamb will put balls into play against a Giants defense that ranks 29th in the Majors with a .665 defensive efficiency ratio.

Corey Kluber: With a 3.06 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and a 10.0 K/9 rate since the outset of 2014, the right-hander has the skills to post an impactful total in DraftKings contests when he works at home against a Twins lineup that ranks 22nd in the Majors with a .691 OPS against righties.

Hisashi Iwakuma: With a 4.19 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP this year, the right-hander could have a reduced DraftKings cost when he brings his career 3.23 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into a home tilt vs. an Angels lineup that ranks 27th in baseball with a .663 OPS against righties.

Jake Arrieta: With a 2.15 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP since joining the Cubs in 2013 -- including a 1.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP this year -- the dominant right-hander could spin a gem when he works at home against the Pirates. Also working in Arrieta's favor: The Cubs lead the Majors by a wide margin with a .738 defensive efficiency ratio.
