MLB Hitting Stacks for 5/2 – Sock from the Bosox

Published

on

We have a small eight game slate scheduled for Thursday. Despite the lighter slate there are still a few sweet spots for stacking options for May 2nd.

Atlanta Braves

Any time the Braves’ offense is opposed by a lefty, they have to be considered for stacking purposes. Against southpaws this season, Atlanta has been very successful. As a team they have a .239 ISO (third highest), a .287 AVG (fourth highest), 14 home runs (fourth most) and 49 runs (third most) against left-handed pitching.

And tonight is no different. While the Padres’ Matt Strahm has a respectable 3.04 ERA there is some regression coming. On the season he has a 4.44 SIERA and a 4.79 xFIP, while allowing a 45% hard contact rate.

As you look to stack Braves’ bats, consider the usual suspects: Ozzie Albies (.375 ISO, .495 wOBA vs. L), Freddie Freeman (.364 ISO, .461 wOBA vs. L) and Ronald Acuna (.423 ISO, .461 wOBA vs. L). If you are interested in going to a four-man stack with the Braves, consider using Johan Camargo. The 3B/OF has mashed against lefties this season with a .300 AVG and a 161 wRC+. He also is just $2,600 on FanDuel and should help you afford the other three as they are all priced over $4,000 there.

Colorado Rockies

Whenever the Brewers run Freddy Peralta to the bump, there should be interest in stacking against him. The right-hander is basically everything we look for when searching for a pitcher to target against. Peralta is a flyball pitcher with a 53% flyball rate. He has a 42.3% hard contact rate. The flyballs and hard contact have led to home runs, as the Brewers’ hurler is allowing 2.55 HR/9. And the cherry on the top is he is a one-pitch guy. Peralta is throwing his fastball 79% of the time in 2019.

So of course, we want to get some Rockies in our DFS lineups for Thursday. Our stack needs to start with Trevor Story. The shortstop has the best matchup of any of the Colorado batters. Story has a .267 ISO versus right-handed pitching and a .349 batting average against fastballs. It also doesn’t hurt that Peralta is allowing a .424 wOBA to righty bats in 2019.

You will want to get in some Charlie Blackmon (.228 ISO vs fastballs) and David Dahl (.281 ISO vs fastballs) with Story. If you want to get a bit contrarian with your Rockies’ stack, Mark Reynolds could be an option if he cracks the starting lineup. He has a .233 ISO and a .340 wOBA against right-handed pitching this season. Reynolds also helps free up some cash, as he is just $2,100 on FanDuel and $3,700 on DraftKings.

Milwaukee Brewers

The Rockies’ Jon Gray is having a fine season with a respectable 3.65 ERA. But his 4.44 SIERA suggests he is vulnerable to a blowup. And that blowup likely will come against a team with some heavy lefty sticks. Gray is allowing a .371 wOBA and 1.96 HR/9 to left-handed batters this season.

While this stack is not as appealing with Christian Yelich likely sidelined, there still is some firepower left to build around. Mike Moustakas has a .297 ISO and a .394 wOBA versus right-handed pitching. He also has shown some power against fastballs this season, which Gray throws 51% of the time, with a .308 ISO against the pitch type. Eric Thames is also in play with a .289 ISO against righties. If you are looking to dig deep, Travis Shaw does have two home runs in 11 career at-bats against the Rockies’ starter. He also comes with a reduced price tag of just $3,600 on DraftKings.

Boston Red Sox

In their last three games, the Red Sox offense has gotten it going. In that span they scored 21 runs. Expect the Boston bats to stay hot in this one. The White Sox will oppose the red-hot offense with right-hander Lucas Giolito. The Chicago hurler has struggled this season with a 5.30 ERA and is returning from a stint on the IR. In his career he has had a tough time with lefties. He owns a career 5.55 xFIP versus them, while maintaining just a 15.4% K%. With that in mind, start your Boston stack with Mitch Moreland. Not only is he reasonable priced on FanDuel at $3,400 but also the first baseman has homered in two straight and owns a .365 ISO against righties in 2019. You will also want some Andrew Benintendi in your stack. He has a .341 wOBA versus right-handed pitching this season. And although they are not left-handed, round out your Red Sox stacks with Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez. Chicago’s Giolito has thrown his fastball 56% of the time this season and both of those outfielders have ISOs over .220 on that type of pitch.

Washington Nationals

The St. Louis Cardinals’ Dakota Hudson seems like a good target to pick on for Thursday. He has the fourth highest ERA and the third highest SIERA of any pitcher on the hill today. He has been particularly weak against left-handed bats in his career. He owns a 5.83 xFIP, while allowing a .453 wOBA and a 46.8% hard contact rate to lefties. The left-handed bats to target from the Nationals include Matt Adams (.244 ISO vs R) and Adam Eaton (.366 OBP vs R).

Good luck and happy stacking!
