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 evening slate beginning at 7:05 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

Oakland (at Colorado - LHP Kyle Freeland)

No surprise here. There’s a game at Coors Field tonight, and both sides will make up the most popular stacks of the night. Left-handed pitcher Kyle Freeland will take the bump for Colorado, and Oakland has plenty of quality right-handed bats to give him fits. Mark Canha, Chad Pinder, and Sean Murphy lead the way. This is also a great spot for Matt Chapman to finally break out. Elvis Andrus is a bargain filler attached to this promising stack.

Colorado (vs. Oakland - LHP Cole Irvin)

Oakland has the top run-scoring projection of the night, but I almost like the Rockies even more. They will square off against LHP Cole Irvin, who has given up 24 hits and 13 earned runs across 14.2 innings over his last three starts. He only has six strikeouts over that span. A high-contact rate in a generous ballpark should yield plenty of runs for the home side tonight. C.J. Cron, Garrett Hampson, Brendan Rodgers, and Yonathan Daza look good in this spot.

Top Plays: Sean Murphy (C ), C.J. Cron (1B), Matt Chapman (3B), Garrett Hampson (OF), Mark Canha (OF)

Top Value: Brendan Rodgers (2B), Elvis Andrus (SS), Chad Pinder (OF), Yonathan Daza (OF)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Boston (at NY Yankees - RHP Jameson Taillon)

The Yankees will be another popular DFS stack while facing struggling LHP Eduardo Rodrigeuz. Most people won’t bother with the Red Sox bats in this matchup. There’s definitely room for upside from Boston, as they’ll face RHP Jameson Taillon - who has allowed three or more earned runs in four of his last five starts. Left-handed bats like Alex Verdugo and Rafael Devers will see a nice boost at Yankee Stadium. J.D. Martinez and Hunter Renfroe are definitely in play as well.

San Francisco (vs. Chicago Cubs - RHP Kohl Stewart)

Kohl Stewart has been somewhat decent (4.43 ERA) across 67 major league innings. However, he holds an extremely low 4.84 K/9 rate over that span. In other words, he’s not missing many bats, which could eventually lead to regression. Stewart also carries reverse-splits with a .342 wOBA mark to right-handed bats. Evan Longoria, Donovan Solano, and Buster Posey will look to jump all over that, while Alex Dickerson, Steven Duggar, and Brandon Crawford are on the tournament shortlist as well.
