Astros rookie pitcher Spencer Arrighetti has not been able to get off to the start he was hoping for, going 0-4 with an 8.44 ERA through the first five starts of his career. He allowed five earned runs on eight hits against the Yankees his last time out, so he will be looking to turn things around against the Athletics on Monday. Athletics second baseman Abraham Toro-Hernandez is batting .299 with four home runs and 17 RBI overall this season, and he is 8 of 19 in his last four games. Should you include him in your MLB DFS lineups on Monday?

Athletics starter Ross Stripling is 1-6 with a 5.14 ERA, so Monday's matchup between Oakland and Houston could yield some favorable MLB DFS stacks on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. Are there any other pitching matchups you should be looking at when you create your MLB DFS strategy?

McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Monday

One of McClure's top MLB DFS picks for Monday is Nationals shortstop CJ Abrams at $5,800 on DraftKings and $3,900 on FanDuel. Abrams has been the most productive player in Washington's lineup this season, leading the team in hits (41), home runs (7) and runs (25). He is coming off back-to-back multi-hit outings against Boston over the weekend.

Abrams hit .245 with 18 home runs during his first full season last year, and he is on pace to improve in both categories this year. The 23-year-old hit .500 with two RBI and two runs scored in a three-game series against the White Sox last year. He is facing Chicago starter Chris Flexen, who is 2-3 with a 4.29 ERA through his first eight appearances of the season. 

McClure is stacking Abrams with Nationals second baseman Luis Garcia Jr. at $3,800 on DraftKings and $3,100 on FanDuel. Garcia is a cheaper option to stack with Abrams from the MLB DFS player pool, even though he is batting .297 with three homers and 20 RBI. He was held hitless on Saturday and Sunday, but he had hit safely in 15 of his previous 17 games. 

The 23-year-old went 4 of 4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored against Toronto on May 5. He has been providing additional value on the base paths this season, stealing seven bases on seven attempts. Garcia had three hits, a walk and scored four runs in his most recent meeting with the White Sox. See McClure's full MLB DFS player pool at SportsLine.
