MLB DFS Hitting Picks and Stacks for 5/4

Published

on

Saturday is here, with a slate that features a lot of good hitting situations, and a lot of good sleepers. I will do what I can to identify those players for you. All prices are based off FanDuel.

FIRST BASE – ALBERT PUJOLS ($3000) vs. WADE MILEY

The matchup looks great on paper, against the soft Wade Miley, who throws nothing but hanging sliders, to the MACHINE in Albert Pujols. Pujols is coming off of a couple of doubles in his last game, and when the MACHINE is locked and loaded, the results still come when he faces soft lefties.

FIRST BASE – JUSTIN SMOAK ($3600) @ LANCE LYNN

Lance Lynn may have shown life in his last start, but going back to Texas to face the big swinging Justin Smoak is exactly what the doctor ordered. Smoak has been on the cold side of life as of late, but this matchup against the non overpowering Lynn should open the door for Smoak to rake up those hits.

SECOND BASE – JOSE ALTUVE ($3800) @ TREVOR CAHILL

Altuve is having a nice season, quietly returning to MVP form, going up against Trevor Cahill, who has not pitched well in a number of years, should keep that momentum going. Altuve will rack up the stats and be a fantasy contributor for many years to come. Matchups like these will help that momentum continue.

THIRD BASE – TODD FRAZIER ($2800) @ GIO GONZALEZ

The Todd Father, going up against Gio Gonzalez sounds like a matchup straight from 2016, but we are in the future and both of these players are on the down swing of their careers. Frazier does not do much anymore these days, but this matchup here can help us remember the good days. Gio is not overpowering anyone anymore.

SHORTSTOP – CARLOS CORREA ($4000) @ TREVOR CAHILL

Correa may not be the next A-Rod like everyone said he would be, but he is still an All-Star and Trevor Cahill is the furthest from that. Correa is not having a bad season, hitting .296 with six bombs on the year. The matchup is good, the ballpark in Mexico can help, so I like Correa to keep it going.

OUTFIELD – CHARLIE BLACKMON ($4200) vs. LUKE WEAVER

Blackmon is one of the hotter Rockies on the squad, and going up against Luke Weaver who is good, but not good enough for Coors field, can prove to bring offense. To expect Weaver to throw a shutout is not realistic, and if you expect the Rockies to score runs at home, it is on Blackmon to set the table.

OUTFIELD – J.D. MARTINEZ ($4100) @ MANNY BANUELOS

Martinez may not have the power yet this season, but he is hitting above .300 and a tasty matchup against a soft lefty can be just what the doctor prescribed. Martinez is definitely confident at the plate, racking up six hits in the last two games! If I am Banuelos, I would not dare pitch to Martinez.

OUTFIELD – MIKE TROUT ($5000) vs. WADE MILEY

Any chance you can get to play the Hall of Fame talent in Trout against a weak lefty like Miley, you play him. Trout should be able to get some very hittable pitches that he can launch to another dimension. Trout is hot coming off of a HR in his last game, expect the momentum to continue.

OUTFIELD – GEORGE SPRINGER ($4400) @ TREVOR CAHILL

Playing in Mexico where the elements help the hitters, expect Springer to be very aggressive in the first at-bat against Cahill and can easily lead this game with one of his patented HRs. Springer has shown some pop this week with a HR, and this matchup can easily keep that momentum rolling.

STACKS OF THE DAY

COLORADO

No matter who is pitching, any Rockies hitter at home can make a huge impact. Luke Weaver has been strong as of late, but that front of the lineup for the Rockies (Blackmon-Story-Dhal-Arenado) is one of the best power stack to live and die by as of late.

ARIZONA

Any time any team travels to Colorado, they become a squad you need to consider stacking. Arizona’s offense is hot, scoring in double digits against the Rockies to open the series. They can easily continue that momentum against Kyle Freeland, who does not overpower anyone.

LOS ANGELES ANGELS

Wade Miley’s numbers are not horrible yet, but they eventually will be. The Angels have a lot of power from the right side in that lineup (Trout-Simmons-Pujols). Those three hitters should be able to produce runs throughout the game.

HOUSTON ASTROS

Trevor Cahill is never a reliable pitcher to depend on, and the Astros have one of the best front of lineups in baseball (Springer-Altuve-Bregman-Brantley-Correa). All of those guys can launch big hits.
