Whenever the White Sox run Dylan Covey to the bump, there should be interest in stacking against him. The right-hander is basically everything we look for when searching for a pitcher to target against. Covey is a flyball pitcher with a 40% flyball rate. And he is not missing any bats. Covey also has a slate low 16.02% whiff rate and is allowing contact on 85.8% of swings taken by the opposition. The flyballs and heavy contact have led to a slate high 6.44 SIERA.
So of course, we want to get some Nationals in our DFS lineups for Wednesday. The Washington stack needs to start with Juan Soto (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,700). The outfielder has the best matchup of any of the Nationals’ batters. Soto has a .230 ISO versus right-handed pitching while Covey is allowing a .368 wOBA to lefty batters. Some other lefties worth considering, if they are in the lineup are: Gerardo Parra (FanDuel: $2,500 DraftKings: $4,200) and Matt Adams (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,400). Both lefties have ISOs above .240 versus righties in 2019.
Feel free to get Anthony Rendon (FanDuel: $4,500 DraftKings: $5,900) and Howie Kendrick (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $5,800) in your lineups. Both have crushed right-handed pitching all year and should have no problem making light work of Chicago’s Dylan Covey.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Any time the Dodgers’ offense is opposed by a righty, they have to be considered for stacking purposes. Against right-handed pitching this season, Los Angeles has been very successful. As a team they have a .218 ISO and a .353 wOBA) against right-handed pitching.
And tonight should be no different. While the Diamondbacks’ Jon Duplantier has a respectable 3.18 ERA, there is some regression coming. On the season he is allowing a 45.5% hard contact rate, highest on the slate. We have also seen his velocity dip almost three MPH since the start of the season.
As you look to stack Dodgers’ bats, use their lefties. Duplantier has allowed a 58.8% hard contact rate to left-handed bats this season. So, your L.A. building blocks would include the likes of: Joc Pederson (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,600), Cody Bellinger (FanDuel: $4,800 DraftKings: $5,800), Corey Seager (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,600) and Max Muncy (FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $4,900). All four of these Dodgers’ left-handed batters have accumulated at least a .200 ISO versus right-handed pitching and should hit a few balls hard against the Arizona starter in this one.
Sandy Alcantara is having an ok season on the surface with a respectable 4.08
ERA. But his 5.65 SIERA tells a different story. A blow up is likely coming and
probably coming Monday. Alcantara is allowing a .323/.429/.485 slash line in
starts where is coming in with five days rest. He last pitched May 30th.
stack is appealing enough with that in mind, also consider that the Brewers’
offense has a .201 ISO versus right-handed pitching this season. Load up on the
following Brewers: Christian Yelich (FanDuel: $4,900 DraftKings: $6,000), Mike
Moustakas (FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $5,600), Yasmani Grandal (FanDuel: $3,600
DraftKings: $5,100) and Eric Thames (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $5,100). Each
of these Brewers’ bats have over .200 ISOs against righties this season.
St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals’ offense has a date with the Reds’ Anthony DeSclafani on Monday. The right-hander seems like a good target to pick on for Wednesday. Not only is he allowing 2.32 HR/9 this season, and the Cardinals have roughed him up pretty well in the past.
The current Cardinals’ roster has a career .300/.383/.555 slash line against him in 120 at-bats. You will want to get Marcell Ozuna (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,200), Matt Carpenter (FanDuel: $3,200 DraftKings: $4,300) and Paul Goldschmidt (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,300) in your lineups. Carpenter and Goldy each have over 1.500 OPS against the Reds’ starter in their careers.
Other stacks to consider:
Texas Rangers vs. John Means
Tampa Bay Rays vs. Spencer Turnbull
New York Yankees vs. Trent Thorton
Value Stack: San Francisco Giants
By most accounts, the Mets’ Jason Vargas is not a very good pitcher. He has a 5.39 SIERA. He is allowing a 44.4% hard contact rate, while striking out just 17.8% of the batters he has faced.
Vargas’ lack of success this season, the DFS sites, particularly FanDuel, have priced
the Giants extremely low. Their most expensive regular can be had for just
$3,300. Use the Giants to help cram in your other, more expensive stacks for
