DFS Hitting Stacks for 5/29: Bright Reds

Published

on

Here are the top teams to stack for MLB’s May 29th action:

EARLY SLATE

Cincinnati Reds

The Pirates’ Steven Brault is a guy we want to attack when he takes the bump for Pittsburgh. The left-handed pitcher has a robust 7.11 ERA. And his other numbers for this season aren’t any better. Brault has a 5.46 SIERA and a 5.85 xFIP. The Pittsburgh starter also is getting hit hard with a 44.9% hard contact rate, making the Reds look like a juicy stacking option for Thursday.

The building blocks for this stack will be Eugenio Suarez (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,900) and Nick Senzel (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $4,900). Both of these right-handed bats have at least a .300 ISO against lefties in 2019. And while he doesn’t have great numbers against southpaws this season, how do you not chase yesterday’s three home run performance by Derek Dietrich (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,900)?

Other Reds to look at it include: Kyle Farmer (FanDuel: $2,100 DraftKings: $3,800) and Yasiel Puig (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,200). Both Cincinnati bats have over .200 ISOs against lefties in 2019.

Seattle Mariners

The Rangers’ Drew Smyly is struggling this season with a 6.15 ERA and is allowing 2.14 HR/9. With seven Mariners owning an ISO of over .200 against southpaws in 2019, the Texas starter’s struggles should continue in this one.

These seven players should be the emphasis of your stack: Jay Bruce (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,300), Domingo Santana (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,500), Daniel Vogelbach (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $5,300), Tim Beckham (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $3,800), Mitch Haniger (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,400), Omar Narvaez (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,200) and Edwin Encarnacion (FanDuel: $3,500 DraftKings: $4,500).

Los Angeles Angels

Since returning to the big leagues, the Athletics’ Daniel Mengden has been hit really hard by opposing offenses. In fact, he has allowed a 50% hard contact rate. The hard contact has resulted in him having a 6.07 SIERA and a 6.11 xFIP. The Angels’ offense should be able to hit some balls awfully hard against the young Oakland right-hander here and make for a great value play to combine with Cincinnati or Seattle.

Mike Trout (FanDuel: $4,700 DraftKings: $5,500), Kole Calhoun (FanDuel: $3,500 DraftKings: $4,100), Albert Pujols (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $3,500), Shohei Ohtani (FanDuel: $3,300 DraftKings: $3,500) and Tommy La Stella (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $3,900) all have produced at least a 45% hard contact rate against righties in 2019.

MAIN SLATE

Arizona Diamondbacks

Winning DFS lineups for today’s slate will likely be loaded with Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies will be running Jeff Hoffman out to the bump. The right-handed starter has not fared well at Coors Field in his career. Hoffman has allowed a .303/.376/.541 slash line in 86.1 innings pitched in Colorado. Hoffman also has a 5.20 xFIP and 5.7% K-BB% in those contests. Look for the Diamondbacks to take advantage of this matchup in a big way tonight.

The Diamondbacks’ build must start with Eduardo Escobar (FanDuel: $4,600 DraftKings: $5,700). The third baseman is red hot. He has scored double-digit fantasy points per game for a week now.  His hot streak should continue on Wednesday. Escobar has crushed against righties this season. He owns a .250 ISO and a .351 wOBA against them. You can build around Escobar with a combination of Adam Jones (FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $5,300) and Ketel Marte (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $5,500) as well. Each of these Diamondbacks’ hitters have .200-plus ISOs against right-handed pitching in 2019.

Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies have had Robbie Ray’s number throughout his career. In 106 at-bats against the current Colorado roster, the Arizona starter has allowed a .302/.395/.586 slash line with a .982 OPS. Of the 32 hits Ray has allowed to the current Rockies’ hitters, 16 of them have been for extra bases. And seven of those have left the yard. The success against Ray should continue tonight as the Rockies’ offense has a.209 ISO versus lefties in 2019.

When building your Rockies’ stack, of course you will want to start the construction with Nolan Arenado (FanDuel: $4,900 DraftKings: $5,600). The infielder has crushed lefties this season. He has a .466 ISO and a .516 wOBA versus them. Also, he has killed Ray in the past. Arenado has a 1.289 career OPS against the Diamondbacks’ pitcher.

You also need to consider Ian Desmond (FanDuel: $3,500 DraftKings: $3,900). The outfielder has an ISO of .321 versus lefties in 2019. He also has a 1.289 career OPS versus Ray. Chris Iannetta (FanDuel: $3,300 DraftKings: $3,700), Ryan McMahon (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,100), Daniel Murphy (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,100), Raimel Tapia (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,100) and even Mark Reynolds (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $3,500) should all be considered. Each of those Rockies’ hitters have .200-plus ISOs against left-handed pitching in 2019.                                                                                                                                              

Kansas City Royals

The Chicago White Sox’s Reynaldo Lopez has struggled this season. The Right-hander has a 5.09 SIERA and a 5.81 xFIP. Lopez has also allowed a 53.6% flyball rate and a 40.9% hard contact rate. In addition to his 2019 struggles, Lopez has also had a difficult time with the Royals in his career. Against the current Royals’ roster, the Chicago starter has allowed a .301 batting average and a .382 on-base percentage.

Hunter Dozier (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,100) and Jorge Soler (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,400) are great building blocks to a Royals’ stack. Both Kansas City hitter have ISO’s of at least .275 against right-handed pitcher but they also have .900-plus OPS against flyball pitchers.

Alex Gordon (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $4,800) and Adalberto Mondesi (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,500) also have produced at least a .200 ISO against righties in 2019. While Whit Merrifield (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $5,200) has a .364 wOBA and a 127 wRC+ against right-handed pitching this season.

Philadelphia Phillies

The St. Louis Cardinals will be starting Genesis Cabrera. The left-handed pitcher has a 6.35 ERA in Triple-A this season. In 39.2 innings pitched for the Memphis Cardinals, Cabrera has allowed 43 hits and 19 walks that have led to 28 earned runs. The Phillies are likely going to provide a rude welcome the Cardinals’ starter.

Jean Segura (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,800), J.T. Realmuto (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $4,600), Scott Kingery (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings: $4,100), Rhys Hoskins (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $4,900) and Bryce Harper (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $4,500) all will be part of the welcoming party. Each of these players have recorded at least a .200 ISO versus lefties in 2019.

Baltimore Orioles

The Tigers’ Ryan Carpenter has had a rough go to the start of his 2019 campaign. He is allowing 3.21 HR/9 while maintaining a 9.00 ERA. While we usually stack against the Orioles, today you want to stack with the Orioles.

This stack will of course start with Trey Mancini (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,000). While he is not a cheap part of the stack, he is an owner of a .283 ISO and a .430 wOBA versus lefties this season.

The other bat to consider starting the Baltimore stack with is Pedro Severino (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings: $3,900). Severino has a .300-plus ISOs against lefties this season.

Good luck and happy stacking!
