Today's edition of Aces and Bases focuses ONLY on FanDuel's nine-game MLB DFS Main Slate for 7:05PM ET, hopefully finding you some green screens!The ugliest weather is in St. Louis, and there's a good shot at a delay or postponement there. Some other trouble spots to be aware of as well, but the Cub...

We’ve got five hitters for you in the 9/6 MLB DFS main (1:05 p.m. EST) slate in large-field FD GPPs, where it pays to be fearless and swing for the fences.

9/6 MLB DFS – C-1B Jose Abreu (FD $3,800) CWS @ KC

I’ve made the mistake of fading Abreu in favor if cheaper options before, and it’s a rough lesson to learn. Everything about the Cuban slugger’s matchup today is favorable, from the opposing pitcher (“Oh How Far Have You Fallen, Matt Harvey?” could be a modern folk song performed in sandlots by hipster troubadours) to the 20 mph winds blowing out among the ramped-up heat and humidity. I’ll be targeting a few hitters from the ChiSox today, but Abreu is the first.

9/6 MLB DFS – 2B D.J. LeMahieu (FD $3,900) NYY at BAL

We’ll need to find some value plays later in our GPP lineups, but there will be plenty of time for that one we delve into the outfield, where there’s always bargain options worth a look. For now, let’s focus on high-upside plays like LeMahieu, who along with his general awesomeness against RHPs (.408 wOBA) so far this season) has a history of smashing poor Asher Wojciechowski, the poster boy for dumpster fires. Just be aware that since both the Yankees and White Sox have the highest implied totals of the day, three of my five targets here will be players from those squads – and I’ll be using players from those games in my GPP stacks.

9/6 MLB DFS – 3B Josh Donaldson (FD $2,800) MIN vs. DET

We’re still getting a massive discount on Donaldson from the FanDuel algorithm since he’s only a few games back from injury, and if we want anybody with a pulse on the bump on our teams, we’re going to have to get some sub $3K players in here. The veteran masher is hitting second in the potent Twins lineup and faces a rookie pitcher (RHP Casey Mize) who skipped AAA and is definitely going to have his hands full today. This might be where I stray a bit from my CHW and NYY stacks because I’m not as high on switch-hitting Yoan Moncada, whose numbers against RHP aren’t as great, and hot corner savant Giovanny Urshela is on the IL.

UPDATE: With no Donaldson in the lineup, the Twins look a little less potent and you can pivot to a similarly priced Austin Riley or Travis Shaw.

9/6 MLB DFS – SS Gleyber Torres (FD $2,800) NYY at BAL

Torres has struggled this season with injuries and ineptitude at the plate, but if there’s a venue that will get the good vibes going for him again, it’s Camden Yards – where he boasted a 1.667 OPS (not a typo) in 36 plate appearances in 2019 and 7 of his 12 hits were homers. We don’t always like to play guys who are scuffling, but he notched a double and a walk last night and this could be the spot he breaks out in a big way. I wouldn’t question your decision to play either White Sox SS Tim Anderson or Twins SS Jorge Polanco if you don’t trust Torres yet, but I’m fearlessly forging into the fray with Gleyber!

UPDATE: Ugh. Another spot where we have to pivot. Jorge Polanco makes the most sense and you can always adjust another spot to fit in Tim Anderson.

9/6 MLB DFS – OF Jesse Winker (FD $2,900) CIN @ PIT

While generational talent Luis Robert and RHP destroyer Eloy Jimenez will be anchors in many of my GPPs, I’ve got to highlight the insane value we’re getting from Winker, who’s realizing his massive potential and sporting a .432 wOBA vs. RHPs in 2020 (including a .329 ISO and eight homers in 85 AB). Winker comes in at an affordable price in the heart of the Reds order against a relatively woeful and eminently hittable Chad Kuhl, who’s taken his lumps from the Cincy offense.

NOTE: My pitching will be a mix of Masahiro Tanaka (always a nail-biting GPP play with upside) and the occasional high-priced option when I can find enough value in the $2,200-$2,800 range for UTIL and the third OF position.

Good luck!

There are a lot of great spots for bats in 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting so I will help narrow it down to my favorite high end and value bats.  I’ve purposely left out Coors Field bats since we already know the drill there. Play them if you can get to them.

Top Bats:

Max Kepler ($4,400 FD).  Kepler has a 0.295 ISO against Righties this season and will likely be batting leadoff for a team with implied run total approaching seven.  He has faced Sparkman seven times and has hit the ball hard off of him including a home run.  

Jorge Polanco ($3,700 FD).  Jorge Polanco is next on my 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting list with a 0.242 ISO against right handing pitching this season and gets the same advantage as Kepler with the Kansas City bullpen.  Not only is Glenn Sparkman a below average starting Major League pitcher, the bullpen tgives up 39.5% hard contact.  

Cavan Biggio ($3,600 FD).  Biggio gets a nice 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting matchup today against the O’s tonight.  I like all of the “kids” from Toronto because they get my three favorite things in a matchup.  They get the ballpark upgrade, guaranteed ninth inning at bats, and a weak bullpen. Biggio has a 0.246 ISO facing left handed pitching and Brooks gives up 42.6% hard contact and a 0.268 ISO to lefties.

Toronto is my favorite stack of the night with Minnesota being a very close second.  There are many ways to go with pitching tonight so you can fit multiple high end bats in your 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting lineups tonight

Top Value Bats:

Yasiel Puig ($2,900 FD).  Puig will get to face lefty Dillion Peters tonight and will likely bat cleanup.  He has a 0.212 ISO against lefties and Peters gives up 42.9% hard contact and gives up a 0.289 ISO to righties.  If I am paying up for pitching tonight, I am looking to the other value bats from this lineup as well. Franmil Reyes ($2,800 FD) and Jordan Luplow ($2,500 FD) also hit lefties hard and should do some damage as 8/2 MLB DFS Hitting Picks.

Eloy Jimenez ($2,800 FD).  Jimenez has a 0.227 ISO against lefties and gets a matchup with Jason Vargas in a hitter’s park.  Vargas throws his changeup 40% of the time and Jimenez has 0.250 ISO against that pitch type. Look for him to take one out of the park tonight.

We had a full 15-game slate on Sunday July 28. All points and price values for the 7/29 MLB DFS Winners and Losers are based off DraftKings.

If you want to check out some of my other work click here!

Want to know who the Winners and Losers will be tonight? Premium Gold members can consult our premium projections and rankings!

7/29 MLB DFS Winners

Jose Altuve ($4,500)

Jose Altuve was one of the MLB DFS Hitting Picks of Destiny for Sunday. Check them out every weekend on Win Daily. Altuve went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and a run. Altuve is creeping up to .300 for the year with a .293 batting average. Look for him to continue racking up hits and getting on base on Tuesday’s slate.

Altuve’s Outlook

Jose Altuve may just be the hottest hitter in baseball right now. He is batting .415 with six home runs and 16 RBI in his last 15 games played. If Altuve continues to have pop in his bat like the way he is hitting currently, it could give the Astros a chance to play the Wild Card winner come the playoffs. The Houston Astros are off today, but begin a series against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday. The Indians have Shane Bieber on the mound, but that shouldn’t stop Altuve from continuing the hitting tear he has been on of late.

Jorge Polanco ($4,900)

Listed as a shortstop stud on the MLB DFS Hitting Picks of Destiny, Jorge Polanco had a solid day at the plate against the Chicago White Sox. He went 2-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored. He jumped on Dylan Covey, who failed to record an out, with a home run in the first. Look for Polanco to continue hitting on Tuesday’s slate as well.

Polanco’s Outlook

Jorge Polanco has been hitting well in the past week, batting .300 with three homers and seven RBI. His next game is an interleague matchup on Tuesday in Miami against the Marlins. Look for him to continue being productive at the plate. The Marlins have Zac Gallen on the mound and should have trouble pitching to this lineup.

7/29 MLB DFS Losers

Chris Sale ($16,500)

Chris Sale had a lofty price tag on him last night against the New York Yankees and failed to live up to it. He went 5.1 innings and allowed six runs on five hits with three walks and seven strikeouts. He picked up his 10th loss of the year, which is the most since he was traded to Boston. Fade Sale in his next start.

Sale’s Outlook

Chris Sale has been struggling. He is 2-3 with a 6.05 ERA in his last seven starts with just 38.2 innings pitched. Sale’s next start is slated for one of the games during the doubleheader on Saturday in New York against the Yankees. The Bronx Bombers seem to have Sale’s number this season, so avoid him for his next start.

Trevor Bauer ($11,100)

Another pitcher who did not have a good outing yesterday was Trevor Bauer, who went 4.1 innings while allowing eight runs (seven earned) on nine hits and four walks with six strikeouts. He has a 3.79 ERA after the outing and a 1.21 WHIP. Bauer should be solid in his next outing, whether it is in Cleveland or somewhere else.

Bauer’s Outlook

Trevor Bauer had a tough fifth inning, where he imploded and threw the ball over the center field wall from the mound before being taken out of the game. This could potentially be the last image we have on Bauer in an Indians jersey. He had a bad start, but was solid beforehand. If he stays on Cleveland, his next start will be Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels. Look for Bauer to bounce back in his next game.

7/29 MLB DFS Injury Update

Robert Acuna Jr and Jean Segura were involved in a collision at second base yesterday. Acuna slid into Segura’s knee and both players left the game. Acuna had neck stiffness, but felt better after the game and expects to be in today’s lineup. Segura suffered a contusion from being hit with the J.T. Realmuto throw on the play.

The New York Yankees placed CC Sabathia on the 10-day IL with right knee inflammation. Tyler Wade was recalled from Triple-A.

Thursday’s MLB action may not include a Coors Game, but there are plenty of offenses to stack in DFS. We have four stacks to target as you assemble your Daily Fantasy Sports entries.

Sign up NOW forWIN DAILY Premium Gold right here!Projections, weather reports, wagering info, 24/7 expert chats and more!

Minnesota Twins

I am pretty sure the Oakland Athletics pushed Tanner Anderson’s start back a day just so he could help put on a fireworks show. Anderson has a 7.13 ERA this season, while allowing a robust 48.3% hard contact rate. The high amount of hard contact has led to home runs, as he is allowing 2.04 HR/9. With the Twins leading all of baseball in home runs hit, this seems like an appropriate spot to stack some Twinkies in DFS.

Anderson has been awful against lefties. He has allowed a .473 wOBA and 4.91 HR/9. So of course, we want to load up on the left-handed Twins.  So our Minnesota stacks will need to start with Max Kepler (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,600). Kepler has an ISO north of .330 versus right-handed pitching. Other Twins bats worth considering are: Jason Castro (FanDuel: $2,600 DraftKings: $3,800) and Jorge Polanco (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,500). These two bats have ISOs above .240 versus righties in 2019.

Detroit Tigers

The Tigers’ offense is not normally in a position to stack. In fact, it has been good to our bank accounts to use starting pitchers against them. But this is just how bad the White Sox’s Lopez is. Lopez has a .5.12 SIERA and a low 10% swinging strike rate. He is not missing many bats and this is a perfect spot for us to pick on while we build DFS lineups.

Look to use the Tigers’ offense as a cheap stack to help load up on bats from Minnesota or one of these other teams. But target the likes of Brandon Dixon (FanDuel: $2,800 DraftKings: $4,300) and Gordon Beckham (FanDuel: $2,300 DraftKings: $3,300). All of these Tigers’ bats have ISOs over .200 against right-handed pitching this season.

Atlanta Braves

The Phillies’ Zach Eflin is not a terrible pitcher but he is not elite with his SIERA being 1.3 higher than his ERA. That means some regression is coming and it likely is coming today. Not only does Eflin struggle on the road with a 4.64 xFIP, but the Braves’ lineup is stacked with guys that crush righties. The Atlanta Braves have seven guys with regular at bats that are posting .200-plus ISOs against right-handed pitchers.

Of course, start your Atlanta DFS stack with Freddie Freeman (FanDuel: $4,400 DraftKings: $5,000). But you can also mix and match the likes of: Austin Riley (FanDuel: $3,400 DraftKings: $4,500), Josh Donaldson (FanDuel: $3,000 DraftKings: $4,000), Tyler Flowers (FanDuel: $2,500 DraftKings: $3,600), Dansby Swanson (FanDuel: $3,700 DraftKings: $4,500), Brian McCann (FanDuel: $2,600 DraftKings: $3,400) and Ronald Acuna Jr (FanDuel: $4,300 DraftKings: $5,400). All four of these Braves batters have accumulated at least a .200 ISO versus right-handed pitching.

Kansas City Royals

The Royalsand Indians game should have plenty of fireworks from both offenses and may bea great spot to game stack for DFS purposes. But if you have to chose just oneside, the Royals’ offense is the way to lean. The Indians’ Zach Plesac has a5.01 SIERA and a 5.13 xFIP in 2019. He also is allowing flyballs at a rate of42.4% which has led to 1.91 HR/9.

Use HunterDozier (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,700), Jorge Soler (FanDuel: $3,100DraftKings: $4,000) and Adalberto Mondesi (FanDuel: $3,600 DraftKings: $4,800).These three batters have ISOs greater than .200 against right-handed pitching.

But also, Dozier (.250 ISO) and Soler (.409 ISO) have crushed fastballs this season, which Plesac has thrown 55% of the time.

A strange day for this Independence Day with the DFS contests split up at unusual times and games. And not every team is playing on this holiday? How does that happen? Well I guess Independence Day falling on a Thursday gives MLB some leeway as teams travel to get ready for the upcoming weekend series that start tomorrow.

Catcher:

Jason Castro, Twins at Athletics ($2,600 FD, $3,800 DK): One of the keys to the Twins’ fine season is how well their catchers have hit. At times this season, the Twins have seen three really good hitting catchers on their roster in Castro, Mitch Garver and Willians Astudillo. The first two names in this threesome have hit so well that the third player has spent much of the year in the minors even though he has performed well when asked to.

Back to today’s match-up, Garver played last night so Castro is likely to see his name on the scoresheet today. On the season, Castro has 10 HRs in 111 ABS vs righties and has an OPS of .934. In other words, he is an elite hitter against righties. Castro faces rookie Athletics right-hander Tanner Anderson who is really struggling right now.

DFS First Base

Justin Smoak, Red Sox at Blue Jays ($2,700 FD, $3,900 DK): Both players chosen so far are extremely affordable to let us pay up for arms and big bats in smash spots. Smoak gets spot-starter Hector Velazquez of the Red Sox and gets to take his cuts against him from his strong side of the plate. For the season, Smoak’s OPS is .904 vs righties and only .572 vs lefties. With Velasquez not expected to go too long in the game and with the dearth of lefties in Boston’s bullpens, he will likely swing the bat as a lefty all game.

DFS Second Base

Gleyber Torres, Yankees at Rays ($3,600 FD, $4,900 DK): The Rays have a great pitching staff and their starter today (Chirinos) has been effective all season. So why do I like Torres today? First of all, he is an extremely talented player on the best hitting team in the majors. Secondly, his road splits are incredible, with a .999 OPS as compared to .782 at home.

Thirdly, someone standing up for him vocally might give him an extra spark. Yankee manager Aaron Boone backed his star player and blasted the A.L. for leaving Torres off the All-Star roster here. A particularly strong quote from Boone: “I think it’s a joke he’s not on that team. Gleyber Torres, not an All-Star? You can kick rocks on that one. That’s ridiculous.” Torres is red-hot, with hits in 12 of his last 13 games and multiple hits in three of his past five games.

DFS Shortstop

Jorge Polanco, Twins at Athletics ($3,700 FD, $4,500 DK): For DFS roster construction, having multiple Twins is probably a good idea. As mentioned before about Jason Castro, Tanner Anderson is struggling. So use Polanco, who has hit in six straight games and 15 out of 16. For the season, Polanco has a terrific OPS of .974 against righties.

DFS Third Base

D.J. LeMahieu, Yankees at Rays ($4,300 FD, $5,400 DK): Here is one of my “big bats to pay up for” written about previously. With as much talent as the Bronx Bombers have, this scrappy player is likely their MVP to-date. He just has hit the ball so consistently well all season long. LeMathieu is particularly hot right now, with multiple hit games in seven of his last eight. If the Yankees do damage in St. Petersburg late this afternoon and evening (which I think they will), LeMahieu will likely be a huge part of the fireworks.

DFS Outfield

Let’s go with one more Twins bat in Max Kepler ($3,700 FD, $4,600 DK). This German-born lefty hits righties very well and will likely bat leadoff. His OPS against right-handers is .915.

An old DFS saying of mine, well just for the past season, is to use Joey Gallo ($4,200 FD, $5,700 DK) at home against mediocre or young right-handed pitchers. The scheduled days off for pitchers for both teams is out of whack due to the tragic passing away of Tyler Skaggs. Griffin Canning starts for the Angels in a hot Globe Life Park where the ball will carry very well.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. ($3,700 FD, $5,500 DK): You may say to yourself, that is expensive for him! Well, this guy is red-hot and faces the uncertain pitching situation of the Red Sox. Since June 20th, Gurriel Jr. has hit 7 HRs, which may have something to do with batting third in the order behind Valdimir Guerrero Jr. Lourdes has Expected Slugging and Hard Hit rates that both rank in the 87th percentile or better on the season. To make a long story short, these power numbers are not a fluke, folks.

Monkey Knife Fight Pick of the Day

Max Kepler/Jorge Polanco/Jason Castro Hits on the Day

Feeling safe? Go for double your $ and the trio combine for five or more hits. Risky? Put a 5X next to your money if they combine for seven or more hits. As you can tell in my writing, I like the Twins bats alot today!

We have a fascinating DFS slate ahead of us. What makes it so interesting is that we have games in Coors Field, Globe Life Park, Great American Ballpark and SunTrust Park. Those are easily five of the best hitting parks in the Majors and it should make for a ton of runs.

Sign up NOW for WIN DAILY Premium Gold right here! Projections, weather reports, wagering info, 24/7 expert chats and more! 

Catcher  

James McCann, DET at CWS 

DK ($4,900)   FD ($3,500) 

McCann has quietly been one of the best catchers in the game and he’s tough to fade in this fantastic matchup. Facing Ross Detweiler is huge for anyone but especially right-handed batters. Not only does he have a 5.17 ERA and 1.61 WHIP dating back to 2015, Detweiler has also allowed right-handed bats to hit .300 against him while approaching an OPS of .900. That’s a scary thought against a guy like McCann, who’s posting a .406 OBP and .978 OPS against southpaws so far this season. That’s why the Tigers are one of the sneakiest DFS stacks of the day at their dirt-cheap price tags. 

First Base  

Joey Votto, CIN vs. MIL 

DK ($4,200)   FD ($3,300) 

Many people assumed that Votto was done about a month ago but he’s been a different player since then. In fact, Votto is hitting .357 over his last 30 games while generating a .965 OPS in that span. That’s the perennial All-Star that we’ve become accustomed to and it’s clear he made some major adjustments to his swing. What we love here is that he gets to face a righty, with Votto providing an OBP and wOBA north of .400 against righties and an ISO above ,200 for his career. It’s a right-hander we definitely want to exploit in DFS too, with Jhoulys Chacin pitching to a 5.60 ERA and 1.52 WHIP so far this season.  

Second Base  

Jose Altuve, HOU at COL 

DK ($4,600)   FD ($4,100) 

While it’s difficult to trust Altuve on FanDuel at this price, the DraftKings price makes him impossible to fade. We’re talking about one of the best pure hitters of our generation hitting in the best BABIP park in baseball. Coors Field caters to a hitter like Altuve, as he should finish this series with a couple of multi-hit games. What really adds to his intrigue here is that he gets to face Peter Lambert, who’s pitching to a 6.57 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. That’s really not far off of his ugly minor league numbers and why the Astros are projected for more than six runs. This $4,600 price tag on DK is really difficult to understand in DFS.  

Third Base 

Josh Donaldson, ATL vs. PHI 

DK ($4,100)   FD ($3,000) 

Donaldson has re-discovered his power stroke over recent weeks and it’s hard to understand why these sites continue to price him so low. Over his last 19 games, Donaldson has seven homers and 14 RBI en route to a 1.010 OPS. That’s the MVP third baseman who used to do so much damage in Toronto and it’s clear he’s capturing some of that prior form. It’s the matchup that really makes him an enticing option here though in DFS, with Philly throwing out Nick Pivetta, who’s posting a 5.63 ERA and 1.52 WHIP this season.  

Shortstop 

Jorge Polanco, MIN at OAK 

DK ($4,400)   FD ($3,800) 

We have to get at least one Twins player into our DFS article, as they could be the highest-scoring team on this slate. The reason is because they’re facing Tanner Anderson, who’s pitching to a 7.13 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.  The simple fact is, this is a guy that was forced into the A’s rotation because of the Frankie Montas suspension and he’s simply not ready to face Major League hitters. That’s evident by his 6.26 ERA and 1.70 WHIP at Triple-A this season. Those statistics squarely put Polanco in play, as he is generating a .582 SLG and .978 OPS against right-handed pitching in the heart of this potent Twins lineup.  

Outfield 

Shohei Ohtani, LAA at TEX 

DK ($5,300)   FD ($3,900) 

Ohtani has been one of the best hitters in the league since coming over from Japan and we have to love him in this situation. Not only does he get to work in a hitter’s haven like Globe Life Park, Ohtani also gets the DFS platoon advantage in his favor. Since joining the Angels last season, Ohtani is generating a .629 SLG and 1.002 OPS against right-handed pitching. That’s huge against a regression candidate like Ariel Jurado, whose xFIP is nearly a run higher than his ERA.  

Eloy Jimenez, CWS vs. DET 

DK ($4,300)   FD ($3,100) 

If you read an article of mine a month ago when I told you to buy-low on Eloy in season-long formats, you’re surely happy. After getting off to a dreadful start, Jimenez now has eight homers, 17 runs scored and 19 RBI over his last 19 games. That’s the stud prospect we’ve been waiting for all season long and it’s clear that he’s finally finding his groove at this level. What really makes him attractive here is that he gets to face a lefty, with Jimenez posting a 1.215 OPS against southpaws at Triple-A last season. That hasn’t quite shown yet at this level but it very well could against a guy like Daniel Norris. The Tigers lefty is providing a 4.62 ERA and 1.38 WHIP this season, which is pretty much the guy we’ve seen throughout his disappointing career.  

Jordan Luplow, CLE at KC 

DK ($4,300)   FD ($2,900) 

If you don’t know already, Luplow is simply one of the best lefty mashers in the Majors. In fact, the Indians outfielder is posting a .714 SLG and 1.132 OPS with the platoon advantage in his favor this season. Those are obviously bonkers numbers and it really makes him attractive against a guy like Danny Duffy. The Kansas City lefty is providing a 4.74 ERA and 1.44 WHIP dating back to last season. His FanDuel price is really hard to understand, as he’ll be good DFS chalk.

With both Coors and Miller hosting games that could turn into high-scoring affairs, there might be a lot of cracking cold brews as we watch the numbers turn on the scoreboard and in our DFS lineups.

1.) Los Angeles Dodgers

Antonio Senzatela is no more than a below average pitcher. At Coors this season he holds a 6.21 ERA and has given up five long balls. What doesn’t help his case is that he struggles against lefties. So far this season he has given up a .336 BAA and a .531 SLG. With the likes of Joc Pederson, Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger and Alex Verdugo, good luck. The Dodgers are going to have a field day and carry your DFS lineups.

2.) Minnesota Twins

Carson Fulmer has had a horrible start to his young career. So far while at home in his career he holds a 7.81 ERA with a .390 wOBA. He is able to limit his hard contact, but he gives up massive fly ball rates. With the power hitters of Eddie Rosario, Nelson Cruz, CJ Cron and Jorge Polanco, there is no reason why they won’t chase Fulmer back to the minor leagues on your way to winning big in DFS.

3.) San Diego Padres

What a downfall for Michael Wacha. Someone with such promising talent that just lost it all this year. On the road so far this season he holds a 5.21 ERA. So far this season he has been very reverse splits and cannot get a righty out for the life of him. Against righties he has a .338 BAA and a .619 SLG. Hunter Renfroe, Manny Machado and the young phenom in Tatis Jr. should be the staples of your DFS stack here.

4.) Milwaukee Brewers

How bad are the Pirates regretting this Chris Archer Trade? Holllllllllly. Archer has been dreadful this year, but he has been even worse away from Pittsburgh (8.42 ERA). It seems like Archer has been better against lefties, but the underlying numbers show that he gets hit harder, more fly balls and strikes them out less. This makes me love Yelich, Mouse, Grandal and I also don’t mind throwing in Braun for DFS purposes. This is a very sneaky stack for me as I assume everyone will jump all over Coors.

1.) Texas Rangers

I’ll start off by saying Reynaldo Lopez is a gas can. On the road this season he holds a 7.28 ERA with a .314 BAA. He also has more trouble striking out lefties, which results an the uptick in walks to them. I’m in love with every single lefty here in no particular order. I will prioritize Choo over everyone. The Rangers are far and away my favorite stack.

2.) Minnesota Twins

Jakob Junis is terrible, can we all agree? At home this season he has posted a 5.68 ERA with a .276 BAA. The thing I love about this matchup is that he cannot get lefties out. With a .302 BAA along with a .522 SLG and a 46.3% hard hit rate, he’s going to get shelled. To go with my favorite plays of the day, I LOVE Eddie Rosario here. He is a left-handed slugger who can pop off for a multi home run game at any moment. Pair him up with Jorge Polanco, Max Kepler and Luis Arraez.

3.) Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get Trent Thornton coming into town and I think they’re salivating as much as I am. Although Thornton has found success (2.98 ERA) away from Toronto, I think he is going to struggle here. The two main left-handed bats, Andrew Benintendi, is a main target. Thornton has his struggles with left-handed bats, as he is giving up a .262 BAA and a ton of extra base hits. If you can afford it, I would love to employ Benintendi, Martinez and Betts here.

4.) Chicago White Sox

Ariel Jurado is a very confusing pitcher, as he seems to hold his own in Texas and then gets blown up on the road. With the White Sox coming into town, I think that story changes here. Jose Abreu is hands down a Top 3 guy for me on the slate. Against right-handed bats Jurado, has a .330 BAA and a .580 SLG. Eloy Jimenez is also one of my top bats tonight, I think if you don’t want to stack them or need two very strong one-offs, I would take either of them. Abreu > Jimenez.

First Base – C.J. Cron, Minnesota Twins

DraftKings $4,400

Against left handed pitching this season, Cron, is batting .364 with five home runs. Soto is an absolute gas can and I want to attack him every way possible. 

Second Base – Chad Pinder, Oakland Athletics 

DraftKings $4,100

Against left-handed pitching this season, Pinder is batting .293 with a 50% hard hit rate. With the temps projecting this one as a very high day in Texas, I expect nothing less than a home run from Pinder.

Third Base – Miguel Sano, Minnesota Twins

DraftKings $4,600

As you can see my theme is attacking righties who hit lefties hard. Sano falls right into this category. In his career against lefties, Sano has a 41.8% hard hit rate with a massive 40.5% fly ball rate. I see the huge upside here with Sano.

Shortstop – Jorge Polanco, Minnesota Twins

DraftKings $5,100

The trend continues and you can probably see my number one stack coming into play. Jorge Polanco has been on a tear this year and against left-handed pitching he’s batting .322 with a 40% hard hit rate. Like I said, I want to attack Soto in every way I can.

Outfield – Stephen Piscotty, Oakland Athletics

DraftKings $4,300

You know the drill here so I’ll skip to the stats, against left-handed pitching this season he’s batting .382. Piscotty also holds a 37.2% hard hit rate against lefties, this just screams home run.

Outfield – Nelson Cruz, Minnesota Twins

DraftKings $4,200

I’ll end here with the obvious trend of the article, Nelson Cruz is always a player I look for against lefties. This is my favorite play on the slate. First off he is waaaaaaaayyyyy too cheap, and this rounds off my stack with the outfield perfectly. With a career 39.6% hard hit rate and a 38.9% fly ball rate, this is my complete home run call of the day.

Stacks



1.) Minnesota Twins

Gregory Soto is a gas can and gets hit very hard against right-handed bats (46.5% hard hit). I told you above I love the likes of Polanco, Cron, Sano, and Cruz. Even when they get past Soto this Tigers bullpen is horrible. So I don’t mind rounding out stacks with Eddie Rosario or Max Kepler.



2.) Oakland Athletics

Any time the Athletics are going up against a lefty I’m intrigued. The biggest boost I see here is the very very hot weather in Texas. It’s supposed to be 87 degrees and we all know how the ball carries in Texas. The Athletics hit the ball very hard, especially against lefties. They could put a very crooked number up in this one.
