The Sox have solid numbers against Shane Bieber. As a team Chicago is batting .292 over 96 at bats. James McCann, Yoan Moncada, Jose Abreu and Eloy Jimenez are 18 for 47 combined against Bieber with six home runs. That's success worth looking into.
Secondary: New York Yankees *right Handed home run hitters only*
Sixto Sanchez - Miami Marlins - (vs. Atlanta Braves)
After checking the Rotoworld Optimizer this morning, I immediately noticed Sanchez atop the Pitcher Projections. At reasonable salaries across the industry, Sanchez is our pitching play of the day! Check out his consistent production. Sanchez is grossly under-priced and the perfect play for GPP tournaments tonight. The 22 year old right hander had his regression game last week against the Nationals allowing five earned over four innings pitched. I expect Sanchez to come back strong against an Atlanta team that he’s already dominated back on September, 9th for 26.5 total DK points. The Marlins are +155 underdogs with a 8.0 O/U.

James McCann - Chicago White Sox (vs. Shane Bieber)
My first piece of a Chicago White Sox stack, McCann. Chicago’s right handed catcher is batting 3 for 7 with a home run against Bieber. Not the biggest sample size nor the most impressive but notable nonetheless. McCann is batting .179 over his last 10 games with three home runs. Ice cold over his last five, McCann looks to turn it around tonight. Baseball stats tend to return to the mean. Remember that. Tonight is the perfect situation for him to turn it around in a game that I fully expect Chicago to win. The Indians are favored by -157 with a 7.0 O/U. Don’t let this line deter you from investing in shares of the White Sox tonight.
Jose Abreu - Chicago White Sox (vs. Shane Bieber)
Abreu is a crucial piece to this stack. Abreu is batting .389 with three home runs against Bieber over 18 career at bats. That’s domination. The same sort of numbers were present for Freddie Freeman last night, we all saw what happened there. These kinds of BvP stats cannot be ignored. Abreu has a .880 SLG % against Bieber. Chicago’s first baseman comes into this game red hot, batting .395 with four home runs over his last 10 games - my GPP batter of the day!
D.J. LeMahieu - New York Yankees - (vs. Robbie Ray)
The wind is blowing out to left field at 12 mph in Toronto’s home stadium, Sahlen Field in Buffalo, NY. The Yankees have the highest implied run total and have major home run potential tonight against Ray. Ray has allowed 12 home runs over his last 10 games amounting to a 7.16 ERA. Righties are batting .292 with 10 home runs against the lefty, making LeMahieu and other right-handed Yankees top plays tonight for cash or GPP tournaments.
Yoan Moncada - Chicago White Sox (vs. Shane Bieber)
Moncada has a .353 batting average with two home runs in 17 at bats against Bieber. Over his last 10 games Moncada is ice cold with a .118 batting average and no home runs. With that said, the potential is there. If you’re stacking these White Sox for GPP purposes, it’s imperative to include Moncada. He’ll simply benefit off a Sox win with runs, and RBI opportunities.
Gleyber Torres - New York Yankees (vs. Robbie Ray)
Yankees who are batting from the right side of the plate have significant home run potential tonight against Ray0 As I mentioned above, “Ray has allowed 12 home runs over his last 10 games amounting to a 7.16 ERA. Righties are batting .292 with 10 home runs against Ray.” Not to mention, the wind is blowing out to left field at 12 mph in an already small stadium in Buffalo, NY. Invest in the heavy hitting Yankees for cash and GPP tournaments.
Jesse Winker - Cincinnati Reds (vs. Adrian Houser)
The left handed outfielder has two home runs against Houser in eight at bats. He’s ice cold at the moment batting just .083 over his last 24 at bats.The theme of today’s article seems to be, cold batters getting back on track in the perfect matchups. Winker’s salary has dropped but his potential remains. The Reds are favored at -152 with an 8.5 O/U. Eugenio Suarez is a viable player to pair with Winker.
