The Astros and Rangers got a head start on everyone and opened their second half on Thursday. To add to the plus of having a head start they get to face Jesse Chávez. He isn’t much of a strikeout specialist so I expect many balls to be put in play here. Righties do great damage against Chávez, as he gives up a .271 BAA and a .507 SLG. I’m looking right at Alex Bregman, Jose Altuve, George Springer and of course the young phenom, Yordan Alvarez. The Astros top the DFS Stacks today.
2.) New York Yankees
Aaron Sanchez heads to the Bronx and he is going to regret getting on the plane. To start, he has a 6.75 ERA on the road and a .304 BAA. Sanchez is kind of reverse splits geared, as he is worse against righties so that’s where I want to attack him. Give me all of Scary Gary, Aaron Judge, D.J. LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres. The Yankees might break the slate or ruin everyone’s DFS Stacks today and score three runs.
3.) Milwaukee Brewers
Shaun Anderson comes to town and the Brewers should be as excited as I am. I am going to load up here in tournaments to pivot off Houston. Against lefties this season Anderson has given up a .284 BAA and a .451 slugging. Not to mention that Milwaukee is a lefty friendly park, so give me all of them in my DFS Stacks today. Christian Yelich, Yasmani Grandal, Mike Moustakas, and I don’t even mine using Lorenzo Cain.
4.) Seattle Mariners
Taylor Cole is a trash can to target with DFS Stacks today. To start, in a small sample size, Cole has a 5.59 ERA and a .282 BAA at home. Against righties he has a .286 BAA and a .405 SLG. I know he is just the opener, but it could open very badly for Seattle. Felix Pena will follow Cole and he cannot get lefties out for the life of him. Give me all the bats and load up here in DFS Stacks tofday. I think the M’s go very under-owned here.
