We’re going to start with stacks as we lock in my favorite of the night, the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are facing Cal Quantrill. He is a right-handed rookie who has yet to play in a stadium like Coors. We saw a high-scoring affair last night and you can expect another one tonight for the Rockies. Quantrill’s Splits are clearly more advantageous towards left-handed batters, as he’s allowing a .333 BA to opposing lefties with three home runs in 63 at-bats. San Diego used four of their relievers last night to carry them through 5.2 innings and allowed nine runs by the end of it all. I think you can expect a similar output tonight against the rookie right hander.
The Milwaukee Brewers are my late night hammer, as they face San Francisco and Drew Pomeranz. He is a shell of his former self. His ERA is up, opposing batting averages are through the roof and despite playing in a pitcher’s park, Pomeranz is still exhibiting poor numbers at home with a 5.23 ERA. Pomeranz has yet to face the Brewers this season but I fully expect Milwaukee to take advantage of this struggling starter.
Ryan O’Hearn, KAN vs. MIN
DK ($3,000) FD ($2,500)
O’Hearn has been ice cold lately. But honestly, he’s been in the lineup against a lot of tough lefties, which just isn’t his game. O’Hearn mainly performs best against hard throwing right-handed pitchers.The manager is trying to get him going with at-bats. With that said, tonight he’ll face right hander Kyle Gibson. Gibson has 4.50 June ERA and is getting killed by left-handed batters, allowing a .268 BA with seven homers to opposing lefties. Kansas City tagged Gibson for a 9.64 ERA in one start with a .364 team BA in that game. O’Hearn needs to get going and should get back on track tonight against the struggling Gibson.
Mike Moustakas MIL at SF
DK ($5,200) FD ($4,000)
Moustakas has 21 home runs on the season, third most in the league. At a weak position on FanDuel and DraftKings, lock in a guy that will give you a high floor as well as a potentially high ceiling. Drew Pomeranz stinks. How’s that for you? I can actually just rattle off any stats. How about his .317 allowed BA to opposing righties or his 9.88 ERA over the past month? Pomeranz does NOT currently have the stuff to compete with the Brewers lineup. I do think Milwaukee is the late night hammer and stacking them would be wise. The Brewers are favored by -135 with an 8.5 under/over.
Matt Chapman, SEA vs. OAK
DK ($4,200) FD ($3,800)
Matt Chapman owns a .385 BA in 13 at-bats against Marco Gonzales. In those at-bats, Chapman has hit four doubles. With an under/over of nine, favoring Oakland by -180, Chapman should have plenty of opportunities for runs and RBI. Chapman should be sitting in the three hole, which is the perfect spot for a killer DFS performance.
Paul DeJong, STL vs. NYM
DK ($4,200) FD ($3,800)
DeJong is 5-for-6 against Steven Matz with one double and two home runs. Tonight he should be sitting in the five hole and just homered last night. The only thing I would like to see is a better stadium, as it’s tough to homer in Citi Field. But I think all things considered, DeJong hits value tonight with St. Louis being slight underdogs with a 8.5 under/over.
**Remember, last night’s game will be finished from 6-7:30 tonight. They’ll be warmed up by first pitch of the second game for sure!**
David Peralta, ARI at WSH
DK ($4,000) FD ($3,600)
David Peralta has a tough matchup against Max Scherzer tonight in Washington. Peralta actually has good numbers against Scherzer, hitting .357 in 14 at-bats with two doubles and two home runs. Peralta should be low owned and carries high upside despite facing a tough pitcher in Scherzer. The Diamondbacks are underdogs with a 7.5 under/over. Slightly risky, but a solid play at low ownership.
Adam Jones, ARI at WSH
DK ($3,900) FD ($3,100)
Adam Jones has four home runs against Scherzer and a .371 BA in 35 at-bats. If Arizona can get past Scherzer, they’ll be facing one of THE worst bullpens in the league, with a 4.66 ERA. Jones, Peralta and Marte could be an interesting, low-owned stack against one of the best pitchers in the league.
