This report will provide stacks that I recommend for today’s 7 game main slate. I’ve also included my favorite one-offs and value plays.
Houston Astros Stack
vs. LHP Andrew Heaney (LAA): 5.70 Runs
This is a play you’re not going to be able to get away from tonight. Andrew Heaney carries a 5.40 ERA, 5.39 FIP, and 4.20 SIERA through 36.2 innings pitched. Through 27 innings pitched, right handed batters are slashing .319 wOBA, .449 SLG, and to a .304 OBP against Heaney. The Astros have been hitting very well recently, slashing .374 wOBA, .204 ISO, and a .516 SLG. Smaller slate tonight so ownership will be a lot more concentrated on the Astros but it is good chalk and I’m perfectly fine with eating it.
Preferred Stack: (in order of preference) Jose Altuve $3700 FD|$4200 DK, Alex Bregman $4300 FD|$5000 DK, Yordan Alvarez $4100 FD|$4800 DK, Yuli Gurriel $3400|$4400, and Robinson Chirinos $3100 FD|$3800 DK. George Springer ($4400 FD|$5400 DK) is my last choice for higher priced guys but if you’re playing multiple lines I would definitely have exposure.
New York Mets Stack
vs. RHP Jake Arrieta (PHI): 5.00 Runs
I’ve eagerly awaited a solid left handed power hitting team to go against Jake Arrieta since those string of rainouts in Washington a few weeks back. He carries 4.43 ERA, 5.15 FIP, and a 4.85 SIERA into tonight’s game. He is absolutely terrible to left handed batters. They are slashing .383 wOBA, .535 SLG, and to a .386 OBP through 43.0 innings pitched. He has surrendered 27 earned runs and 11 home runs over that same span. The Mets are hitting to a tune of .313 wOBA, .181 ISO, and 101 WRC+ over the last two weeks, slightly above their season averages. Be weary of the weather here tonight.
Preferred Stack:(in order of preference) Jeff McNeil $3600 FD|$4900 DK, Dominic Smith $2600 FD|$4900 DK, Pete Alonso $3600 FD|$4900 DK, Michael Conforto $3500 FD|$4400 DK, and Todd Frazier $3000 FD|$4100 DK.
Oakland Athletics Stack
vs. LHP Marco Gonzales (SEA): 5.15 Runs
Marco Gonzales carries a 4.39 ERA, 4.11 FIP, and 5.14 SIERA into tonight’s game. He has fairly identical splits with a .324 wOBA, .444 SLG, and .327 OBP through 78.1 innings pitched against right handed batters. Most should be focused on that Astros stack and probably spending down for some cheap Cardinals so we have a chance to catch the A’s at low ownership. I didn’t list them, but I know they let down a lot of people last night. The A’s are slashing to a .349 wOBA, .223 ISO, and .499 SLG vs. left handed pitching this season. The team as a whole has been in a bit of a hitting slump over the last two weeks, slashing to a .246 wOBA, .112 ISO, and .303 SLG in that time span. I always feel like Oakland is pretty risky, but I’ll go there in GPPs tonight.
Preferred Stack:(in order of preference) Matt Olson $3400 FD|$4700 DK, Marcus Semien $3700 FD|$4300 DK, Josh Phegley $2600 FD|$4700 DK. Matt Chapman $3800 FD|$4500 DK ,and Ramon Laureano $3000 FD|$4100 DK.
