Sunday means getaway day for Major League Baseball, with 15 of the 16 games on the MLB DFS slate kicking off with the sun still in the sky. The Cardinals and Braves play a doubleheader on Sunday, giving MLB DFS owners two opportunities to roster Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr., who has homered 18 times and driven in 43 runs so far in 2021. One of this season's better pitchers takes the mound in Kansas City, as Boston Red Sox right-hander Nathan Eovaldi (7-3, 3.76 ERA) faces the host Royals.
Is it smart to include Acuna and Eovaldi among your MLB DFS picks on Sunday? And where can you find low-cost positional players to afford taking a big swing at a starting pitcher? Before locking in any MLB DFS lineups for Sunday, be sure to check out the MLB DFS advice, strategy and projections from SportsLine daily Fantasy expert Mike McClure.

McClure's top MLB DFS picks for June 20, 2021
One of McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Sunday is Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. at $6,300 on DraftKings and $4,600 on FanDuel. Guerrero is hitting .337 with an MLB-best 23 home runs and an MLB-best 59 RBIs this season. That includes going 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBIs and two runs scored on Saturday against the Orioles.
There might not be a hotter hitter in baseball right now than Guerrero, who is hitting .381 in June with seven home runs and an insane 1.252 OPS. Guerrero's output Saturday was worth 25 points on DraftKings and almost 35 points on FanDuel. Look for Guerrero to dominate struggling Baltimore righty Matt Harvey (3-8, 7.76 ERA) all day Sunday in your MLB DFS lineups.
Part of McClure's optimal MLB DFS strategy also includes stacking Guerrero with Blue Jays shortstop Marcus Semien at $5,300 on DraftKings and $3,800 on FanDuel. Semien is hitting .289 with 18 home runs and 42 RBIs this season. Semien exploded with two home runs, three RBIs and three runs scored on Saturday against the Orioles.
Baltimore's pitching staff has been ravaged all season, and Semien made them pay dearly on Saturday -- helping Toronto score six runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to storm back to a 10-7 victory. Semien is projected to belt 42 homers, double 31 times, drive in 99 runs and score 117 times in 2021. McClure knows that Harvey is 0-7 with a 12.00 ERA since May 7, which is one of the main reasons why he's recommending Semien as part of your MLB DFS strategy.
