New York Yankees
The pinstripes are always viable at home, as Yankee Stadium is a terrific hitter’s park, and even with their injuries, they still pack plenty of heat in their lineup.
New York’s bats could easily pay off on Wednesday, as they get to face the always hittable Tanner Roark. He’s shown no allegiance to either side of the plate, as he’s giving up loads of contact to all hitters (+.207 ISO).
Lefties are the preferred targets, but you can fire up a full Yankees stack and use just about anyone you want. Luke Voit (.231 ISO) and Aaron Hicks (.233 ISO) are two bats that stand out, but there could be as many as eight bats in this lineup with an ISO over .200 against right-handed pitching.
An even better stack should be the Braves, who will probably be chalky as they take on Keegan Akin in Camden Yards.
Atlanta burned us badly the other day, but you can confidently come back to the well here. Akin has been missing bats at an elite rate, but he is giving up too much contact (.376 wOBA, .205 ISO, 53% fly-ball rate) to the right side of the plate.
The Braves are made up of mostly right-handed mashers, and they sport a collective .273 ISO versus southpaws. Akin is in for a tough start tonight.
There should be a lot of ownership flocking Atlanta’s way, and there could be some for the Yanks, too. That could play into Houston going overlooked, even though they’re at home against Kyle Gibson.
Gibson is a better than advertised pitcher who isn’t usually a gas can, but he has not been great in 2020 (1-5, 6.14 ERA), and he comes in with a 55% hard-hit rate against righties – along with a .386 wOBA and .207 ISO against that side of the plate.
That’s not encouraging for a road date with the Astros, who have four very good righties to throw at him. Houston hasn’t been their usual imposing selves in 2020, but this is a pretty good spot to stack your Astros.
Lastly, we come to my favorite under-the-radar daily fantasy baseball stack for the night. The Mariners are in a pitcher’s park and they get Drew Smyly (2.92 ERA), who has admittedly been sharp so far in 2020.
That’s a crazy small sample size, though. Looking back at 2019, Smyly was horrendous, allowing a .367 wOBA, .236 ISO, 11% walk rate, 41% fly-ball rate, and a 46% hard-hit rate to righties.
His sample size versus lefties wasn’t nearly as large, but a .430 wOBA and .431 ISO tells us we can attack him however we want.
I tend to favor the Mariners righties here, but anyone who hits left-handed pitching well is on the table. Ty France and Kyle Seager look like solid one-off bats, but I really like a 3-to-5-man stack to go with a more popular stack.
Atlanta is pretty obvious, but hopefully, I’m pointing you to some other MLB DFS stacks you weren’t already on.
You can fire up these stacks by themselves and mix them with your own favorites, or mix any of these teams to work together.
The hope is that at least one of these daily fantasy baseball stacks pan out, and if the secondary stack you choose is even passable, it can lead to profit.
Thanks for stopping by, and good luck with your MLB DFS contests!
