Pitching Analysis

The pitching landscape for this 10-game slate features some compelling options, with the spotlight shining brightly on Gerrit Cole. Priced at a robust $11,500, Cole is undeniably the crown jewel of this slate. His matchup against the Detroit Tigers promises to be a fruitful one, as Cole boasts an impressive 27.1% strikeout rate and has contained his opponents to a mere 1.03 home runs per nine innings this season. Additionally, his 3.69 Sierra and 6.5% walk rate indicate his consistent dominance. The Tigers’ subpar performance against right-handed pitching, with a 24.4% strikeout rate and a lackluster 86 WRC+, positions Cole for a potential fireworks show.

However, while Franmil Valdez at $10,400 and Nathan Eovaldi at $10,000 are in play, Cole’s well-rounded skill set and prime matchup make him the top choice. Valdez has shown recent inconsistency, and Eovaldi’s return from the IL poses an element of uncertainty, especially facing the formidable Houston Astros.

Chris Bassett at $9,300 and Dean Kremer at $9,000 are intriguing alternatives. While neither pitcher brings Cole’s strikeout upside, they possess matchups that can’t be overlooked. Bassett, facing the Oakland Athletics, showcases a respectable 21.9% strikeout rate and holds the promise of capitalizing on Oakland’s vulnerabilities. Kremer squares off against the struggling Los Angeles Angels and, despite his more modest 21.2% strikeout rate, offers a potential path to a solid outing.

Top Stacks to Target

When it comes to stacking, several teams stand out as prime candidates to load up on for your DFS lineups:

  1. Chicago Cubs: Their clash against Sean Manaea presents an enticing opportunity. With the wind blowing out at Wrigley Field, the Cubs’ hitters can take advantage. Look for Cody Bellinger and Dansby Swanson to lead the charge.
  2. Atlanta Braves: A mainstay in stacking discussions, the Braves are set to face Miles Mikolas. Expect Ozzie Albies, and Austin Riley to anchor this stack.
  3. Arizona Diamondbacks: With Kyle Freeland on the mound for the Rockies, the opposition could enjoy a field day. Corbin Carroll, Christian Walker, and Ketel Marte are names to circle for this stack.
  4. Chicago White Sox & Kansas City Royals: In a hitters’ paradise, both teams have the chance to deliver fireworks. Keep an eye on Yoán Moncada to fuel these stacks.
  5. New York Mets: A showdown with Patrick Corbin allows for intriguing stacking potential. Pete Alonso and Francisco Lindor are the prime options, supported by value plays like Jeff McNeil and Brandon Nimmo.

Dong Calls

For those looking to target home runs, consider these two standout options:

  1. Christian Walker (ARI): His matchup against Kyle Freeland‘s home run-prone tendencies makes him a prime candidate to go deep.
  2. Cody Bellinger (CHC): Despite the lefty-lefty matchup, Bellinger’s red-hot form and the hitter-friendly conditions at Wrigley Field make him a strong pick for a home run.
