DraftKings Fantasy Baseball Advice for Tuesday 5/24/16

We decided to stay away from the top two pitchers in tonight’s contest and instead take Jeff Samardzija as our #1. Samardzija has been really good this season for the Giants, going 6-2 with a 2.66 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. His last outing against the Padres resulted in 34.2 fantasy points, so we’ll go with the same matchup tonight, this time at home. We took three Pirates hitters because the D’Backs Shelby Miller has been horrendous this season. Contest starts at 7:05 ET.
