Welcome to the MLB DFS Stacks article – where we’ll be looking to highlight the best hitting stacks of the day. These recommendations are categorized as “Cash Game Stacks” and “Tournament Stacks” while outlining risk/reward situations. We will add additional context with other hitting/pitching options throughout the article.
Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our MLB News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.
We will be looking at the six-game main slate beginning at 7:05 ET.
CASH GAME STACKS
Philadelphia (at Colorado – RHP Senzatela)
The Phillies have made the pilgrimage to Coors Field, so they are one of the default top stacks for this series. Colorado RHP Antonio Senzatela is a decent pitcher, but things can go south quickly in the Rockies’ hitter-friendly park. Bryce Harper, Andrew McCutchen, and Rhys Hoskins are the obvious top options. Check the lineup for cheaper guys like Alec Bohm, Mickey Moniak, and Brad Miller to get access to his 10-run over/under.
Oakland (at Baltimore – LHP Wade LeBlanc)
There’s some weather risk in this game, so keep an eye on that. The red-hot Oakland offense will look to tee-off on Baltimore LHP Wade LeBlanc tonight, and they’ll get a nice park shift to make that happen. LeBlanc had a .356 wOBA split to right-handed bats in his last full season (2019), so Mark Canha, Matt Chapman, Ramon Laureano, and Elvis Andrus are in line for satisfying fantasy production.
Atlanta (vs. Arizona – LHP Madison Bumgarner)
Madison Bumgarner isn’t the same dominant pitcher we have seen in the past. He has allowed five or more earned runs in three of four starts this season, and that stretch could continue in a tricky matchup at Atlanta. Anytime there’s a southpaw on the mound, Ronald Acuna, Marcell Ozuna, and Travis d’Arnaud come to mind. Guillermo Heredia and Austin Riley are bargain opportunities too.
Texas (at Chicago White Sox – LHP Dallas Keuchel)
Dallas Keuchel has been a little bit sloppy this season with a 5.68 ERA. He’s giving up a ton of contact, and the Rangers could turn that into some hits/runs in Chicago’s hitter-friendly ballpark. Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Nick Solak, and Adolis Garcia have all been swinging the bat well lately, and that could continue tonight.
Arizona (at Atlanta – LHP Drew Smyly)
We don’t really know what to expect from Drew Smyly after coming off the injured list. He had some trouble in his last start (5 IP, 5 H, 5 ER vs. PHI), so maybe that will carry into tonight’s outing. The Diamondbacks are a sneaky-good offense to break through – led by Carson Kelly, Eduardo Escobar, Asdrubal Cabrera, and Wyatt Mathison.
