After a postponement in St. Louis on Tuesday, we definitely need to monitor the weather today. Be sure to check in with the weatherman, Mark Paquette before submitting lineups.
Gary Sanchez, NYY at BAL
DK ($5,500) FD ($4,400)
Stacking Yankees has become very popular recently and it’s hard to argue with people’s logic. Sanchez has been at the heart of those stacks and he’s simply the best hitting catcher in baseball. What’s truly amazing about Sanchez are his peripherals, with the slugging catcher posting a .450 xwOBA and .400 ISO so far this season. Those are both Top 5 in the league and it shows just how potent his bat is right now. A homer on Tuesday is a good omen too, as facing the Orioles is a treat for any hitter. The Orioles are throwing out Dan Straily for this game, who is sitting with a 8.51 ERA and 1.89 WHIP so far this season.
Also Consider: Willians Astudillo faces gas can Matt Harvey, and that definitely puts him in play at just $3,600 on DK.
Kendrys Morales, NYY at BAL
DK ($3,500) FD ($2,600)
While this recommendation didn’t work out on Monday, we’re going right back to the well. If it doesn’t work here, go ahead and forget about Morales for the rest of the year, because we just want to exploit the Baltimore matchups. Coming into Tuesday, Morales batted fifth in four of his first five games with the Yankees. That alone makes him a great option, with the Yankees projected for nearly six runs in this game. He’s also done some damage in those four games, providing two runs, one homer and four RBI in that span. We’re talking about a lefty bat with a career .190 ISO hitting in one of the best parks in baseball. All that would make one believe Morales is approaching $4,000 on both sites, as he remains quite the bargain in the $3,000-range against Straily.
Also Consider: Paul Goldschmidt is too cheap on both sites and could have success against a struggling starter like Brad Keller.
Jonathan Schoop, MIN at LAA
DK ($4,100) FD ($3,400)
Stacking Yankees is probably going to be extremely popular, but stacking Twins should be right there with em’. The simple fact is, Matt Harvey should no longer be called the Dark Knight. I’d rather call him the Green Light because you want to start as many bats against him as possible. Dating back to 2016, Harvey has posted a 5.51 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. The peripherals have been just as bad, with Harvey posting a FIP above 5.00 over the last three years while posting a .373 xwOBA so far this season. That puts all of the Twins bats in play, as they’re currently the highest-scoring team in baseball. Schoop has been a huge part of that, collecting four doubles, four homers and 14 RBI over his last 17 games.
Also Consider: Gleyber Torres is pricey but he’s absolutely obliterated this bad Orioles pitching staff all season long.
Miguel Sano, MIN at LAA
DK ($4,100) FD ($3,500)
This write-up will be abbreviated after that Schoop recommendation, as we obviously don’t need to discuss how badly we want to stack against Harvey. We’ll talk more about Sano, because he’s simply one of the best power bats in the game. In his first five games of the season, Sano has accumulated two doubles, two homers, five runs scored and five RBI. That shows the sort of potential he has, as his .235 career ISO is one of the best marks in the Majors too.
Also Consider: Alex Bregman is one of the highest-priced players on the board but he very well may be one of the best options out there against Ivan Nova.
Carlos Correa, HOU vs. CWS
DK ($5,100) FD ($4,100)
I really want to get some Astros in this article, but Correa is seemingly the only stud who is healthy. After a down 2018, Correa appears to be back to his 2017 form, in which he nearly snatched an AL MVP. In fact, Correa is posting a ,292 average and .925 OPS so far this season, while providing 11 homers, 12 doubles, 24 runs scored and 31 RBI. That simply makes him one of the best bats in baseball and it’s hard to fade him against a guy like Ivan Nova. The White Sox pitcher is sitting with a 7.42 ERA and 1.80 WHIP to match his .453 wOBA.
Also Consider: If you’re looking for a cheaper option, Corey Seager, at just $3,600 is quite the bargain for someone in the heart of one of the best lineups in baseball.
Kris Bryant, CHC vs. PHI
DK ($5,400) FD ($4,300)
I initially had Bryant as a consideration at third base, but the more I thought about it, I had to get this guy in my article. Bryant is actually my best bet to homer on the slate and it’s really hard to argue with his recent form. Since April 26, Bryant is one of the league leaders with 10 homers, 22 runs scored and 24 RBI. Those are absurd numbers in a 22-game span and he’s especially tough to fade against lefties. For his career, Bryant is touting an absurd .979 OPS against left-handed pitching and has an OPS approaching 1.100 over the last two years.
Josh Reddick, HOU vs. CWS
DK ($4,400) FD ($3,200)
In the last two games without George Springer, Reddick has been moved into the leadoff spot. That’s the main reason we like him here, as the Astros have one of the highest projected team totals on the slate against Nova. That means their leadoff hitter should be very pricey and we actually get quite the bargain in this price range. Reddick is in the midst of one of the best seasons of his career too, posting a .331 average and .850 OPS.
Jorge Soler, KC at STL
DK ($3,600) FD ($3,000)
It’s hard to understand why Soler’s price remains so low, as he should be closer to $4,000 on both sites. Over the last two years, Soler has provided 19 homers and 30 doubles in about 100 games played. That’s a fantastic rate and it’s really no surprise when you consider his .216 ISO and .340 wOBA in that span. Those numbers are too good from someone priced so cheaply and we’re definitely not concerned about facing Adam Wainwright. Since 2016, Wainwright is sitting with a 4.77 ERA and 1.43 WHIP while posting a below-average K rate.
Also Consider: David Dahl has too much potential to be priced at $4,200 on DK and could thrive with the platoon advantage in his favor against Nick Kingham.
