Today's MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, May 21

SP: German Marquez, Rockies @ Pirates. Marquez has been up and down this season, but most of his troubles has been on at home. On the road, he has a 2.55 ERA and is striking out a batter per inning. He faces a good Pittsburgh team, but he's in Pittsburgh, so that should help considerably.

C: Jason Castro, Twins @ Angels. Castro is getting extra playing time with Mitch Garver on the IL with injury, and he has been pretty good this year. He has a .420 wOBA and seven home runs this season. He has a nice matchup with homer-prone Trevor Cahill, who is a candidate to stack against.

1B: Luke Voit, Yankees @ Orioles. Voit continues to just crush the ball for the Yankees. He now has 11 home runs and 34 RBIs along with a 14-percent walk rate. He is facing David Hess in Baltimore, so he is definitely worth the price.

2B: Nicky Lopez, Royals vs. Angels. Merrifield has been great this season, hitting .290/.349/.508 with six home runs and seven stolen bases. He is leading off for the Royals and has a nice matchup versus Michael Wacha in St. Louis.

SS Manny Machado, Padres vs. Diamondbacks. After struggling to start the season, Machado is beginning to turn it around in San Diego. He is hitting .304/.372/.580 with five home runs in May. He has a tough matchup with Zack Greinke, but Greinke has been dealing with an injury and may not go deep into this one as a precaution.

3B: Justin Turner, Dodgers @ Rays. Turner is usually a pretty nice cash game player because of his high walk and contact rates, but he is finally showing some pop with five home runs in the past two weeks. I still prefer him for cash games, but he is affordable enough to play anywhere.

OF: Michael Brantley, Astros vs. White Sox. Brantley has been fantastic this season, hitting .328 with a .940 OP. He has 10 home runs and three stolen bases already. He has a great matchup with Dylan Covey and is a premier cash game play.
