Here are 10 DFS recommendations for Sunday’s slate on Yahoo but be sure to double-check the weather and lineups before first pitch approaches.

Luis Severino, SP, vs. CWS (Johnson), $47: The rookie starter has 48 strikeouts over his first 49.1 innings in the majors, averaging a whopping 95.5 mph with his fastball while producing a strong 9.9 SwStr%. The White Sox have scored the second fewest runs in the American League, which is part of the reason why the Yankees are big favorites Sunday (-190).

Mark Buehrle, SP, vs. TB (Andriese), $37: Unlike Severino, Buehrle has anything but overpowering stuff, but he too faces an anemic offense (the Rays rank last in runs scored in the AL) and is helped by baseball’s best offense backing him up. Like the Yankees, the Blue Jays are also -190 favorites.

A.J. Ellis, C, at Col (Rusin), $12: He’s hitting in Coors Field and owns a .271/.401/.514 line against southpaws.

Adam Lind, 1B, at Stl (Lackey), $14: He’s hit better at home than on the road this season by a wide margin, but Lind has pounded righties (.913 OPS), has been on fire this month (.942) and has fared well when facing John Lackey during his career (1.050 OPS).

Jason Kipnis, 2B, at KC (Young), $16: He’s batting .332/.412/.493 against right-handed pitchers and has a strong track record against Chris Young (6-for-12 with a homer and zero strikeouts), yet Kipnis is modestly priced here.

Miguel Sano, 3B, at Det (Wolf), $14: He has the platoon advantage against Randy Wolf, who has a .343 BAA and 1.84 WHIP when facing right-handed batters. There are 14 more expensive third basemen than Sano.

Carlos Correa, SS, vs. Tex (Perez), $15: He’s hit nine home runs over 112 at bats against southpaws this season. The rookie is already one of the most valuable players in baseball, so $15 feels cheap, especially at such a thin position.

Brett Gardner, OF, vs. CWS (Johnson), $16: He’s slumped of late but has a combined 32 homers/steals over just 384 at bats versus RHP and hits much better in Yankee Stadium.

George Springer, OF, vs. Tex (Perez), $14: He’s slashing .273/.385/.488 against lefties and hits atop Houston’s lineup. The huge season many hoped for didn’t come to fruition, but Springer’s potential remains.

Kyle Schwarber, OF, vs. Pit (Burnett), $14: He has a .980 OPS when facing right-handed pitchers, and he looks like a future star, so Schwarber is a bargain at this price.
