Welcome to the MLB DFS Stacks article - where we’ll be looking to highlight the best hitting stacks of the day. These recommendations are categorized as “Cash Game Stacks” and “Tournament Stacks” while outlining risk/reward situations. We will add additional context with other hitting/pitching options throughout the article.

Keep in mind that the following player write-ups were constructed earlier in the day, and sometimes injury/rest situations can alter the fantasy landscape. Monitoring our MLB News & Headlines Feed throughout the day will keep you in the loop while giving you the subsequent DFS consequences of each information piece.

We will be looking at the six-game main slate beginning at 7:15 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

Oakland (at LA Angels - LHP Patrick Sandoval)

Left-hander Patrick Sandoval will be called upon to start for the Angels tonight, which is excellent news for an Oakland team that ranks top five in wRC+ against southpaws. Sandoval holds a career 5.80 ERA in the big leagues, and the A’s could give him fits tonight. Matt Chapman, Ramon Laureano, and Mark Canha lead the way of this well-aligned stack. Jed Lowrie and Sean Murphy are peripheral value options.

San Diego (vs. Seattle - LHP Justus Sheffield)

Seattle LHP Justus Sheffield isn’t a bad pitcher, but he has been generous while allowing four or more earned runs in two of his last four outings. He also carries a .343 wOBA split to right-handed bats. It’s difficult to envision him getting back on track against this loaded Padres’ offense. Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado immediately come to mind, while Tommy Pham and Jurickson Profar are in the mix as well.

Top Plays: Matt Chapman (3B), Fernando Tatis Jr. (SS), Manny Machado (3B), Ramon Laureano (OF), Mark Canha (OF)

Top Value: Sean Murphy (C ), Jed Lowrie (2B), Jurickson Profar (2B), Tommy Pham (OF)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Philadelphia (vs. Boston - RHP Nathan Eovaldi)

Boston RHP Nathan Eovaldi has been pretty boom-or-bust this season. There’s a chance he’ll fall to the latter in a tricky road matchup at Philadelphia. Eovaldi has allowed four or more earned runs in two of his last three starts, so he’s definitely hittable. Rhys Hoskins, Alec Bohm, Bryce Harper, and Odubel Herrera make for a nice stack. Andrew McCutchen and Jean Segura are in the mix as well.

St. Louis (vs. Chicago Cubs - RHP Adbert Alzolay)

The wind is blowing out slightly on a warm day at Wrigley Field. Maybe we’ll see some fireworks because of that? I’m interested in some St. Louis bats against Chicago RHP Adbert Alzolay, who holds a career .354 wOBA split to lefties. Tommy Edman, Dylan Carlson, and maybe even Justin Williams (cheap sleeper) will look to take advantage of that. You can round out this stack with the standbys of Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, and Harrison Bader.
