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 eight-game evening slate beginning at 7:05 ET.

CASH GAME STACKS

Milwaukee (vs. Arizona - RHP Jon Duplantier)

The Brewers have one of the highest run-scoring projections of this slate, and that’s pretty easy to understand. They’ll square off against Arizona RHP Jon Duplantier, who hasn’t been very effective at the Triple-A level, let alone pitching in the majors. He has made four big-league starts over the past few years, holding an inflated 6.62 ERA. Duplantier is nothing more than a rotational filler for the D-Backs right now, and there’s a good chance the Brewers get to him in this home matchup. Christian Yelich, Kolten Wong, Avisail Garcia, and even Willy Adames are in play.

LA Angels (vs. Seattle - LHP Justus Sheffield)

The Angels’ offense looks different without Mike Trout, but there’s still a lot to like. That especially holds true when considering the matchup against Seattle LHP Justus Sheffield. The Mariners’ southpaw has allowed 28 hits and 14 earned runs across 21 innings over his last four starts. He also holds a .350 wOBA split to right-handed bats. Justin Upton, Anthony Rendon, Phil Gosselin, and company will look to take advantage.

Kansas City (vs. Minnesota - LHP J.A. Happ)

J.A. Happ has run into trouble lately, allowing 27 hits and 21 earned runs across 18 innings over his last four starts. Sure, he pitched decently against the Royals last week, but Happ was walking a tightrope for most of the game. He might not be so lucky this time around. Carlos Santana, Whit Merrifield, and Hunter Dozier are the top options to get to the veteran lefty. Michael Taylor and Kelvin Gutierrez are bargain options for the Royals as well.

Top Plays: Kolten Wong (2B), Carlos Santana (1B), Whit Merrifield (2B), Anthony Rendon (3B), Chrisitan Yelich (OF),

Top Value: Salvador Perez (C), Phil Gosselin (2B), Hunter Dozier (3B), Willy Adames (SS), Michael Taylor (OF)

TOURNAMENT STACKS

Arizona (at Milwaukee - LHP Brett Anderson)

We know the deal with Milwaukee LHP Brett Anderson: he’s going to allow a ton of contact while hoping it doesn’t turn into runs. That’s a dangerous game to play, especially in hitter-friendly Miller Park. The strategy hasn’t paid off lately, with Anderson allowing 21 hits and 10 earned runs across 15.1 innings over his last five appearances. Arizona has gotten healthier in recent weeks, so they have a little more pop in their lineup. Ketel Marte, Christian Walker, Eduardo Escobar, and Carson Kelly make for a nice underrated stack here.

Miami (at Pittsburgh - LHP Tyler Anderson)

How about we pick on another left-handed pitcher of the same last name? Tyler Anderson has really struggled for the Pirates, yielding 15 earned runs and 21 hits through 15 innings over his last three games. PNC Park is considered to be a pitcher-friendly environment, but I’m not 100% convinced that will save Anderson tonight. It didn’t in two of his last three starts. Miami right-handed bats like Adam Duvall, Jesus Aguilar, Garrett Cooper, and Starling Marte are intriguing options on the other side of this matchup.
