We have a solid 10-game schedule in the majors Thursday, which means there are multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has six games beginning at 6:45 p.m. ET with the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies opening up a four-game series.

Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.
