Keep checking back as lineups roll in, I will be frequently updating my picks of the night, with the most updated information.
(Updated 6:59 PM EST)
Steve Pearce ($2,500 FD & $2,900 DK) – Cheap as can be on both sites and he’s batting sixth in Yankee Stadium with a lefty pitching and Pearce is batting .314 in 34 at-bats with six homers against J.A Happ. Enough said.

A Baltimore Orioles stack against Pomeranz is looking pretty damn good right about now. Pomeranz has been allowing massive offensive production as of late with an 8.59 ERA over his past with a .313 total allowed BA to opposing teams in that span. Lock and load these Baltimore first four!

Back end of the lineup stack of the day, Realmuto, Nick Williams and Cesar Hernandez.
(Updated 6:03 PM EST)
Nick Williams ($2,000 FD & 2,700 DK) Nick was recently recalled from AAA to replace Odubel Herrera, iand s minimum price of FanDuel and $700 more than minimum on DraftKings. I’m really selling you so far, huh? This is a straight bottom of the barrel punt but has some merit as Williams had three prior homers against opposing pitcher Kenta Maeda in six total at-bats. Yes, this is a little out there but if you’re looking for a minimum price guy with some upside, Nick Williams could go long on the road against Maeda, who did not play well against Pittsburgh in his last start. Williams has just been confirmed batting eighth.

Everyone should always be aware of the stadium factor numbers. Knowing stadium advantages is an extremely important stat to stay up to date on, while noticing the trends. Below are ESPN.com’s most recent stadium factor numbers:
(Updated 5:35 PM EST)
Mike Freeman ($2,200 FD & $3,300 DK): Freeman is usually in the bottom of the lineup in the handful of starts that he’s had this season. Freeman is at great value and faces Dylan Covey, a pitcher that I am definitely not afraid of as he’s sporting a 5.47 ERA at the moment. He is better used within a stack. He’s more likely to benefit off of a solid Cleveland performance, supplying you value in an otherwise expensive stack.
Brad Peacock ($8,600 FD & $9,900 DK): Brad Peacock has his strut back. I know that his price is high but it is well worth it tonight as Peacock faces the Oakland A’s. Oakland is batting only .235 at home this season while only slugging .408. Peacock has had Oakland’s number so far in his career (despite his last outing against Oakland on 4/07/19) allowing Oakland a team .255 BA with 27 strikeouts in 105 at-bats. Houston is favored by -125 with an 8.5 under/over but I fully expect them to do some damage against former Astro Mike Fiers. The key here is each player in Oakland’s lineup tonight has struck out against Peacock in the past while maintaining poor averages against him in relatively large sample sizes. Very rarely do you get such lopsided BvP stats. I know, I said I wouldn’t go BvP crazy because I don’t think you should live and die by the BvP (like some people do), but Peacock’s BvP stats against Oakland are undeniable. Despite his last outing against Oakland where he allowed five earned over 5.0 innings pitched, we’re going to trust him in this one where he could rack up some serious strikeouts against a middle of the road offensive A’s team.
