The week in Major League Baseball continues with a full 15-game slate on Tuesday. It includes Atlanta at Boston, Milwaukee at Philadelphia, Minnesota at the Yankees and a nightcap between San Francisco and Arizona. Here are my 2 favorite player prop bets for Tuesday, while you can also check out all of our MLB picks for today’s action.

Adley Rutschman, BAL, Over 1.5 hits+runs+RBIs (-155)

Odds available at FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

Everything points toward Rutschman having a huge day at the office when Baltimore pays a visit to Toronto. The 26-year-old catcher is on a 7-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 contests. This stretch includes 3 multi-hit performances (1 of the 3-hit variety), 10 total RBIs and 3 runs scored.

Rutschman now gets to face Jose Berrios of the Blue Jays, whom he absolutely owns. The #1 overall pick in the 2019 draft is a dominant 12-for-19 (.632) lifetime against Berrios with 3 home runs and 2 doubles. He has also walked twice without striking out a single time. Even at a relatively steep -155 price, this play is still worth it. Rutschman should go crazy on Tuesday night.

George Kirby, SEA, Over 5.5 strikeouts (-120)

Odds available at DraftKings Sportsbook at time of publishing.

The Mariners and Athletics have struck out more times than any other team in Major League Baseball this season. They are going head-to-head tonight, so expect the K’s to be in abundance. I anticipate the majority of them to come from Seattle starter George Kirby. The right-hander has exceeded this 5.5 number in 6 of 12 starts in 2024, including in 5 of the last 9. He has gone way over more than a few times, with numbers of 8, 12 and 8 again in his most recent outing against the Astros last Wednesday. Pitching on a full 5 days of rest, Kirby should be ready to befuddle an Oakland lineup that has fanned 595 times this year. The A’s have also struck out a ridiculous 63 times in their last 6 contests.
