The Athletics’ Mike Fiers is a guy you can use MLB DFS Stacks against. He is allowing a 40.9% flyball rate and owns a 5.25 SIERA with a low 7.8% swinging strike rate. Not only is Fiers just a guy, but also the Twins’ lineup is stacked with hitters that destroy righties. As an offensive unit they have a .226 ISO and a .341 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season.
You can mix and match with the likes of: Nelson Cruz (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $4,500), Mitch Garver (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $5,200), Miguel Sano (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $4,600), Jason Castro (FanDuel: $2,600 DraftKings: $3,800), Eddie Rosario (FanDuel: $3,900 DraftKings: $4,800), Jorge Polanco (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,600), Jonathan Schoop (FanDuel: $2,900 DraftKings: $4,000) and Max Kepler (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,500). All of these Twins’ batters have accumulated at least a .200 ISO versus right-handed pitching this season.
The Diamondbacks will face the Brewers’ Zach Davies in this one. Davies has a very impressive 2.89 ERA this season. But a bit of a deeper dig suggests that regression is on its way for the Milwaukee starter. Davies also owns a 5.26 SIERA and a 4.99 xFIP. With the Diamondbacks fresh off a thumping of the Rangers this seems like an appropriate spot for MLB DFS Stacks.
Davies has struggled against batters from the left side of the plate, so stack the left-handed Diamondbacks. Our Arizona DFS stacks will need to start with Ketel Marte (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $5,300). He has an ISO north of .230 versus right-handed pitching. Another Arizona bat worth considering is of course Eduardo Escobar (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $5,200). He has an ISO above .210 versus righties in 2019.
The Diamondbacks’ Merrill Kelly is allowing a 42% hard contact rate this season. The hard contact has led to a 4.87 SIERA and a 4.78 xFIP. So this is a perfect spot for MLB DFS Stacks. The Brewers crush righties. Milwaukee has five regulars that own ISOs over .200 against right-handed pitching.
The best of those five regulars, of course, is Christian Yelich (FanDuel: $4,900 DraftKings: $5,700). The outfielder has a .413 ISO and a .490 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season. But don’t sleep on Keston Hiura (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $5,000), Mike Moustakas (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $4,700), Eric Thames (FanDuel: $2,700 DraftKings: $4,500), and Yasmani Grandal (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $4,500). All of these members of the Brew Crew have ISOs over .250 against right-handed pitching this season.
The Angels’ Matt Harvey has the highest SIERA on the slate with a 5.53 mark in 2019. He also has a very high 5.25 xFIP and is allowing hard contact at an alarming rate. 41.6% of his contact allowed has resulted in hard contact so it should not surprise you that he is allowing 1.84 HR/9 this season, which is also the highest on the main slate. The Astros have plenty of batters that should take advantage of this matchup against a right-hander.
You will want Astros that bat from the left side of the batter’s box. Harvey is allowing a .399 wOBA and a crazy high 51.9% hard contact to lefties this season. Consider beginning your MLB DFS Stacks here with Michael Brantley (FanDuel: $3,800 DraftKings: $4,500). The outfielder has a .202 ISO and a 143 wRC+ versus righties in 2019.
