St. Louis Cardinals: Ready to Shine

First up, let’s focus our attention on the St. Louis Cardinals, an offensive powerhouse that’s firing on all cylinders. Their performance across various splits speaks volumes about their capabilities. Against lefties in 2023, they’ve secured an impressive 11th place in wRC+ with a score of 108. Over the previous 30 days, they’ve held a robust 110 wRC+ figure, placing them 12th among all teams. Moreover, their road prowess with a 104 wRC+ rank them ninth for the year.

In this game, they’re poised to exploit a favorable matchup. Bailey Falter, the opposing pitcher, enters the fray with some vulnerability. His ERA of 4.86, xERA of 4.47, and xFIP of 4.60 in 2023 suggest opportunities for the Cardinals to capitalize. Adding fuel to the fire, Pittsburgh’s relievers have an 11th-highest ERA of 4.23 this year. Keep a close watch on the Cardinals’ bats, as they aim to maximize their potential in this outing.

Atlanta Braves: Taking Advantage

Our next target is the Atlanta Braves, who are set to make waves with their powerful lineup. While the odds might not favor a long outing for pitcher Peterson, even a few shots at home could turn the tide. Peterson’s struggles on the road, boasting a 7.75 ERA and conceding 1.9 homers per nine innings, open the door for Atlanta’s hitters.

Right-handed batters have been particularly successful against Peterson, hitting .293. As the game progresses, the Mets bullpen doesn’t inspire fear, setting the stage for an exciting matchup. Two standout players, Riley and Ozuna, have been proving their mettle. Riley’s .279 average and 29 homers showcase his recent resurgence, while Ozuna’s power-packed performance with a .477 slug and 24 homers is equally impressive.

Arcia’s recent struggles aside, his prowess against lefties remains a strong asset, with a 1.116 OPS in 2023. The Braves are primed to make the most of this opportunity and stack up their chances for a successful DFS lineup.

San Diego Padres: Capitalizing on Cueto’s Struggles

Turning our attention to the San Diego Padres, we find an intriguing prospect in their matchup against Johnny Cueto. The veteran pitcher’s recent struggles, including a 6.04 ERA and 2.8 homers per nine innings over his last four starts, create a promising landscape for the Padres’ hitters.

Soto, despite a recent dip, maintains an impressive .404 OBP and .491 slugging percentage. His prowess against right-handed pitchers is noteworthy, with a .987 OPS since 2021. Adding to the firepower is Bogaerts, who’s contributed 13 homers and 13 stolen bases in his debut season with the Padres. His .750 OPS against righties and .754 OPS at home suggest a solid performance.

Cronenworth’s all-around skills, including 10 homers, seven triples, and six stolen bases, enhance the Padres’ offensive depth. With an .860 OPS in the last three weeks, he’s a strong contender to elevate your DFS lineup.

Pittsburgh Pirates: Value Opportunity

While not a top-tier full stack option, the Pittsburgh Pirates present an intriguing prospect. Facing a debuting lefty, Drew Rom, offers a unique chance to mini-stack some value hitters. Rom’s Triple-A performance might not have been dominant, reflected in his 4.75 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 134.2 innings.

The Pirates’ offense might not be the most explosive, but the uncertainty surrounding Rom’s debut creates a favorable situation. Their value hitters can take advantage of a potentially overwhelmed lefty, making for an interesting addition to your DFS lineup strategy.
