Milwaukee Brewers: Crushing Weak Pitching

The Milwaukee Brewers are a prime choice for stacking tonight. While their recent splits may not look stellar, they’re tied for 10th in wRC+ (110) over the last 30 days. The real gem here is their matchup against Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals, who’s been struggling all season.

Wainwright’s stats are grim, with a 7.95 ERA, 7.75 xERA, and a 5.85 xFIP. He’s been serving up home runs at a rate of 1.91 HR/9 and has struggled against both righties and lefties, yielding a .402 wOBA to righties and a .447 wOBA to lefties in 2023.

Wainwright’s 11.3 percent strikeout rate and 1.9 HR/9 make him a vulnerable target. The Brewers are on their way to securing the National League Central, and facing Wainwright could be their ticket.

Players to consider in your stack:

  • William Contreras ($3,200): A strong season with 16 home runs and a respectable .353 wOBA.
  • Christian Yelich ($3,300): Enjoying a resurgence with his best wOBA since 2019 and 17 home runs.
  • Additional bats: Look for other Brewers to fill out your stack, maximizing at-bats and potential.

Rangers vs. Red Sox: Crawford’s Vulnerability

Kutter Crawford of the Red Sox may have a good road ERA, but his overall career numbers are less impressive. Don’t be fooled by his 2.69 ERA away from home; his overall career ERA is 4.94. The Rangers could exploit this.

Players to consider in your stack:

  • Marcus Semien: Strong against righties with an .820 OPS since 2021.
  • Nate Lowe: Impressive .374 OBP and power against right-handers.
  • Leody Taveras: A switch hitter with potential against righties.

Los Angeles Dodgers: Taking on Eduardo Rodriguez

The Dodgers face Eduardo Rodriguez, who surprisingly stayed with the Tigers at the trade deadline. While Rodriguez has had a decent season with a 3.32 ERA, he’s shown vulnerability lately, allowing three or more runs in three of his last four starts.

Players to consider in your stack:

  • Mookie Betts ($4,400): Dominating lefties with a .465 wOBA and 1.144 OPS.
  • Freddie Freeman ($4,200): Handles lefties well with a .437 wOBA and a .295 ISO.
  • Additional Dodgers: Complement your stack with other Dodgers hitters for a well-rounded lineup.

Seattle Mariners: Capitalizing on JP Sears

The Mariners have several reasons to stack against JP Sears. They’ve been performing well against lefties, are in good form over the last 30 days, and Sears has struggled recently.

Players to consider in your stack:

  • Rodriguez: A versatile player with more than 30 homers, doubles, and stolen bases.
  • Kelenic: Despite being a lefty, he performs well against left-handed pitchers.
  • Hernandez: Strong against lefties with an 1.011 OPS since 2021.

San Diego Padres: Power Against Ty Blach

The Padres, despite their disappointing season, have a lineup with the potential to explode. Facing Ty Blach, who has a 4.64 ERA and a 5.13 SIERA, provides a stacking opportunity.

Players to consider in your stack:

  • Juan Soto ($3,900): Coming off a strong performance with 32 home runs this season.
  • Manny Machado ($3,500): May not be at his peak but still provides power.
  • Additional Padres: Choose from Fernando Tatis Jr., Ha-Seong Kim, and Xander Bogaerts to complete your stack.
