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 five-game main slate beginning at 8:10 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

Chicago White Sox (vs. Baltimore - LHP Bruce Zimmermann)

First off, we need to address the weather in this game. There’s rain in the forecast for Chicago tonight, so keep an eye on that issue as we move closer to first pitch. If this game plays, then the White Sox step in with the highest run-scoring projection of the night. Their powerful lineup of righty bats will take on subpar LHP Bruce Zimmermann at hitter-friendly Guaranteed Rate Field. Jose Abreu, Yermin Mercedes, Tim Anderson, and Yoan Moncada are all top plays.

St. Louis (at Arizona - RHP Matt Peacock)

Arizona RHP Matt Peacock has been up-and-down as a major league pitcher, and I believe there’s a chance the Cardinals get to him tonight. Prior to this season, Peacock has only pitched at the Double-A level or lower. He was decent in his last two starts, but regression could set in. St. Louis is equipped with several quality bats to take advantage. Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, Dylan Carlson, and Tommy Edman make for a nice stack.

Top Plays: Yermin Mercedes (C ), Jose Abreu (1B), Paul Goldschmidt (1B), Tim Anderson (SS), Yoan Moncada (3B), Nolan Arenado (3B), Tommy Edman (OF)

Top Value: Nick Madrigal (2B), Andrew Vaughn (OF), Dylan Carlson (OF)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Texas (at Seattle - RHP Chris Flexen)

I’m really liking both sides of this Texas-Seattle game. The Rangers will go up against RHP Chris Flexen, who has a 6.96 career ERA. Flexen has gotten hit extremely hard in his last three starts, allowing 25 hits and 13 earned runs across 13.2 innings. Nate Lowe, Joey Gallo, Willie Calhoun, Adolis Garcia, and Nick Solak make for a beautiful stack.

Seattle (vs. Texas - LHP Kolby Allard)

The pitching prospects on Texas’ side don’t look much better. The Rangers will open with LHP Kolby Allard, who carries a 6.06 career ERA. Behind him stands a mediocre bullpen that doesn’t really scare me away from a potential Seattle stack. Granted, this recommendation comes with more risk than the other three features of this article, but Kyle Lewis, Mitch Haniger, Ty France, and (maybe) Tom Murphy are in play here.
