The Mets’ Jason Vargas has been flirting with trouble all year with his 40.9% flyball rate and 41.1% hard contact rate. And the regression monster veered its ugly head in his last start. In that start, Vargas allowed six earned runs while recording a single strikeout. Look for Vargas’ descent back to normalcy continue to in this one. Not only does Vargas struggle on the road with a 5.56 xFIP but the Twins’ lineup is stacked with guys that crush lefties. As an offensive unit, they have a .214 ISO and a .362 wOBA against southpaws this season. Nine Twins with at least 53 at-bats have ISOs over .190 against lefties.
Of course, start your Minnesota MLB DFS Stacks with Nelson Cruz (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $5,100). But you can also mix and match in the likes of: Mitch Garver (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $5,400), Miguel Sano (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $4,900), C.J. Cron (FanDuel: $3,300 DraftKings: $3,700), Ehire Adrianza (FanDuel: $2,300 DraftKings: $3,500), Jake Cave (FanDuel: $2,400 DraftKings: $3,300), Jonathan Schoop (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings: $4,200) and Max Kepler (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,900). All of these Twins’ batters have accumulated at least a .200 ISO versus left-handed pitching.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox
draw Toronto’s Aaron Sanchez in this one. Sanchez has a 6.22 ERA this season,
while also owning a 5.61 SIERA and a 5.39 xFIP. With the Red Sox sporting a
.349 wOBA and a 114 wRC+ versus righties this season, this seems like an
appropriate spot to stack some of the Boston Bombers in DFS.
Sanchez has been awful against batters from both sides of the plate, so stack the Red Sox however you please. He has allowed a .347 wOBA to lefties and a .380 to righties. But our Boston MLB DFS Stacks will need to start with Mookie Betts (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,400). Betts has an ISO north of .225 versus right-handed pitching. Other Boston bats worth considering are: Rafael Devers (FanDuel: $4,200 DraftKings: $5,700), Xander Bogaerts (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $5,600) and Christian Vazquez (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,900). These three Boston bats have ISOs above .210 versus righties in 2019.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Phillies’ Nick Pivetta has been getting hit hard this season. The righty is allowing a 42.2% hard contact rate. The hard contact has led to him allowing 2.16 HR/9. So this is a perfect spot for us to pick on him while we build MLB DFS Stacks. Especially considering the Dodgers crush righties. Los Angeles owns a .213 ISO and a .347 wOBA versus right-handed pitching this season.
With Pivetta allowing a 43.7% hard contact rate to lefties this season, we will want to target the likes of Cody Bellinger (FanDuel: $4,800 DraftKings: $5,800), Joc Pederson (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings: $4,600), Max Muncy (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $5,100) and Alex Verdugo (FanDuel: $3,100 DraftKings: $4,300). All of these Dodgers bats have ISOs over .200 against right-handed pitching this season.
The Orioles’ Aaron Brooks has a 4.97 xFIP in 2019. He also is allowing flyballs at a rate of 40.5% which has led to 2.04 HR/9. The Nationals have plenty of batters that should take advantage of this matchup with MLB DFS Stacks against a right-hander.
Rendon (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,500), Matt Adams (FanDuel: $2,700
DraftKings: $4,400), Juan Soto (FanDuel: $4,000 DraftKings: $5,500), Howie
Kendrick (FanDuel: $2,600 DraftKings: $4,900), Kurt Suzuki (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings:
$4,700) and Trea Turner (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $5,300). These batters
have ISOs greater than .200 against right-handed pitching this season.
