Lineups are an important part of the daily fantasy baseball research process. Whether you're playing daily fantasy or setting a lineup in a season-long league with daily changes, you'll want to make sure your preferred players are starting and in favorable spots in the order.
With that in mind, ESPN will provide daily lineups for every MLB team, along with some expert advice on how fantasy players should approach the day's lineups and matchups.
Please note that projected lineups are used until confirmed lineups are announced. Confirmed lineups are paired with the source we used to populate the batting order, which is linked in each team's lineup module. Updates (including scratches) will be reflected as they become available.
Note: Projected lineups are educated guesses by our editors, who consider platoon matchups, recent lineups, injuries, news and other factors. All times listed are ET.
