Ben’s Daily MLB DraftKings Plays – 8/23/23 (Early)

Ben's MLB Daily DraftKings Plays


What’s up, 4Deep!? We have some day baseball and a nice little seven-game slate. I’m writing this the night before and will do all I can to update once we get lineups out! LFG!!!


  1. Shohei Ohtani DK $11,200 – Always in play and the Reds strike out a lot.
  2. Corbin Burnes DK $10,500 – Found his groove in his last start now gets the best matchup.
  3. Sandy Alcantara DK $8,200 – Has been much better and feels underpriced.  The Padres can easily get shut down.
  4. Michael Lorenzen DK $7,800 – I’m hoping after his last start, people will be off of him.  He’s been good for most of the season and has a good matchup.


  1. Mariners – This team is hot, and assuming Julio is back, I love them here. 1-7 in play with Julio, Raleigh, Canzone, Hernandez, and Crawford my favorites.
  2. Royals – Muller is not good and the Royals can put up runs in bunches. I would stick with 1-6 in their lineup with Garcia, Witt, and Fermin being my favorites.
  3. Phillies – Both righties and lefties hit Cobb well, so 1-9 are all in play with Harper, Turner, Casty, Schwarber, and Stott being my preferred guys.
