The Bears have scored 24 runs in their last two games and with another juicy matchup against the Samsung Lions scheduled for Saturday, you can expect Doosan Bears players like Jae Hwan Kim and Jae Won Oh to be popular KBO DFS stacks.
Meanwhile, former Astros, Braves and Reds outfielder Preston Tucker has been absolutely torching KBO pitching in his second season with the Kia Tigers.

McClure's top KBO DFS picks for May 23
One of McClure's top KBO DFS picks for Saturday morning is first baseman Jose Miguel Fernandez of the Doosan Bears. The former Cuban star defected in 2015 and briefly played for the Angels in 2018 before signing with the Bears and hitting .344 in his first season in Korea.
In 2020, Fernandez has been tearing the cover off the ball with 10 multi-hit games already through 15 contests. Fernandez is slashing an incredible .476/.529/.730 with three home runs and 16 RBI so far this season. He's got a solid matchup against Samsung's expected starter Dae Woo Kim, a right-handed reliever who is making a spot start with Jung Hyun Baek nursing a calf injury.
McClure also likes NC Dinos second baseman Min Woo Park, who is hitting .371 this season. The 27-year-old has elite bat-to-ball skills with a .328 career average over eight seasons with the Dinos. He also presents some serious issues on the base path with 172 career stolen bases. Park has seven multi-hit games of his own this season and he'll look to set the table for the Dinos against the Hanwha Eagles on Saturday.
How to set your KBO DFS lineups for May 23
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who is set to explode for huge numbers on Saturday. The stars are aligning for him to return tournament-winning value and he comes at a price that won't break the bank. This pick could be the difference between cashing in big or going home with nothing.
