MLB Team Stacks: Winning Edge for August 30

Published

on

This report will provide recommended DFS stack options for today’s 14-game main slate. I will also include my favorite pitching picks.

All plays are listed in order of preference. Please check back between 5-6 PM EST as some players can receive rest days or get limited at bats especially as we get closer to the postseason. Make sure you stay up to date with all our favorite plays on our Premium Gold DFS Cheat Sheet as well.

Teams with Highest IRT

MLB Team Stack: Colorado Rockies

vs. RHP Dario Agrazal (PIT): 7.65 Runs

The Rockies will definitely be popular tonight as they usually are at home, especially with with some intriguing low to mid range pitching options on the slate. I always look for a reason to not ride the Coors chalk, but I will never advocate a full fade. After a relatively good start, Agrazal has found a bit of a struggle and has surrendered three or more runs in his last five games. Agrazal is throwing a ton of sinker at 56% and I believe this bodes well for him in this matchup. Breaking pitches have been found to be some of the more effective pitches in Coors and Agrazal is only throwing his fastball at an 11% clip. I would not want to play him just due to poor strike out upside but I can see Agrazal finding some success here due to his pitching arsenal.

Preferred Plays: Charlie Blackmon ($4700 FD|$5700 DK), Trevor Story ($4300 FD|$5600 DK), Nolan Arenado ($4700 FD|$5700 DK), and Sam Hilliard ($2900 FD|$4000 DK).

MLB Team Stack: Houston Astros

vs. RHP Trent Thornton (TOR): 6.25 Runs

We have a pretty good chance at getting Houston at low ownership and in a great spot. Trent Thornton has been underwhelming for the month of August, allowing hitters to slash to a .364 wOBA, .535 SLG, and .348 OBP. This Houston offense is not quite as explosive as they were a month ago, but they are still producing extra base hits as indicated by their 138 WRC+. Overall power is down to righties over the last two weeks (202 ISO) but this offense is potent and can go off on sub par pitching any given night.

Preferred Stack: Yordan Alvarez ($4200 FD|$5500 DK), George Springer ($3400 FD|$5400 DK), Michael Brantley ($3200 FD|$4400 DK), Alex Bregman ($3900 FD|5500 DK), and Yuli Gurriel ($3700 FD|$4800 DK).

Other Teams I Have Interest in

MLB Team Stack: Minnesota Twins

vs. RHP Edwin Jackson (DET):UPDATE

This is another game that should be considered as an alternative to Coors if you’re looking to get away. I’m assuming a pretty high implied run total here with the matchup against Jackson and the 25th ranked Tigers bullpen. The Twins WRC+ of 107 is a little lower than I’d like to see from them right now but they are still slashing .210 ISO and .478 SLG for the month of August. The power is there to get the job done tonight and as we all know Jackson struggles a ton with the long ball, surrendering 3.08 HR/9 this season. Jackson gave up six earned runs in his most recent start against the Twins.

Preferred Plays: Nelson Cruz ($3900 FD|$5400 DK), Miguel Sano ($3800 FD|$5100 DK), C.J. Cron ($3000 FD|$4200 DK), and Mitch Garver ($3300 FD|$5400 DK). Jake Cave ($2300 FD|$3900 DK) offers some salary relief as well.

MLB Team Stack: Washington Nationals

vs. RHP Elieser Hernandez (MIA): 6.00 Runs

**Moderate Risk

Preferred Plays: Howie Kendrick ($2600 FD|$5500 DK), Anthony Rendon ($4400 FD|$5600 DK), Juan Soto ($4000 FD|$5500 DK), and Matt Adams ($2800 FD|$4400 DK). Also consider: Kurt Suzuki ($2300 FD|$4300 DK) and Asdrubal Cabrera ($2800 FD|$4100 DK)

MLB Team Stack: Pittsburgh Pirates

vs. RHP Antonio Senzatela (PIT): 6.85 Runs

**Moderate Risk

Preferred Plays: Starling Marte ($4200 FD|$5800 DK), Josh Bell ($4400 FD|$5700 DK), Bryan Reynolds ($3900 FD|$5600 DK), Jose Osuna ($3100 FD|$5200 DK), and Colin Moran ($3600 FD|$4600 DK).

Pitching

  1. Kyle Gibson RHP (MIN): UPDATE
  2. Shane Bieber RHP (CLE): UPDATE
  3. Anibal Sanchez RHP (WSH): 3.50 Runs
