Stacks are essential to most DFS players success during MLB season. This article will highlight some promising stacks in prime spots to go off. I will never write up Coors Field as it is a known hot bed for stacking. Stack’em up, Sheet Squad!
Houston Astros (Cash/GPP)
BACK TO THE WELL!!!!!
VS LHBs: .348 wOBA and .188 ISO
VS RHBs: .327 wOBA and .149 ISO
Miguel Gonzalez is terrible as you can see. He normally gets dinged up via string of this than HRs but he is prone to the occasional HR (1 HR/9). This sia high contact team (81%) and a pitcher who doesn’t miss many bats (7.8% SwStr %). Give me the solid swinging bats here of Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve. Josh Reddick is easily my favorite bat here. George Springer is back tonight and worth a look. Carlos Beltran and Marwin Gonzalez are good switch hitters to look at.
Tampa Bay Rays (GPP)
You are probably thinking “but the Rays bats have been ice cold” and you are right by their limited runs scored (2 runs in 4 games) but tonight is the night they break out! Rick Porcello was probably one of the worst ever to win the CY award. He is showing you that this year. (Yes, you can @ me about this Ryan. LMAO). Procello is a FB pitcher (46.1%) giving up Hard Contact to LHBs (44.4%) against a LHB power hitting team.
VS LHBs: .317 wOBA and .167 ISO
VS RHBs: .322 wOBA and .162 ISO
Duda is out so I am NOT HIGH on Rays now!
Cincinnati Reds (GPP)
Travis Wood is one of my favorite Cubs but I know he is not a good starter. The Reds have some him from his recent Cubs days a few years back and that will help some here. Righties have always been Wood’s weakness and this lineup is loaded with them today.
VS LHBs: .255 wOBA and .100 ISO
VS RHBs: .340 wOBA and .174 ISO
Joey Votto is a threat vs either side and if stacking should be highly considered. The RHBS are as follows and order I like them in: Patrick Kivlehan, Adam Duvall, Zack Cozart, Eugenio Suarez. If I don’t take Votto, I will have these 4 in a Reds stack.
Others: (These are GPP options I find suitable as a second tier of Stacks I like)
New York Yankees
Switching more to Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius and less on both Fraziers
Good Luck tonight Sheet Squad! Hit me up with any question on my twitter or in the Slack Channel for subs!
