MLB DFS Top Stacks for Thursday 4-13-23
In this article we’ll highlight some of the MLB DFS Top Stacks for Thursday 4/13/23. With only five games on the schedule, it’s more important than ever to make the right choices. So, let’s dive into the three teams you should be targeting tonight, and show you why these picks will help you dominate the competition. Get ready to take your DFS game to the next level with these top stacks!
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are one of the top teams to target for stacking purposes on Thursday’s MLB DFS slate. They’ll be facing the Minnesota Twins and their starting pitcher, Joe Ryan. While Ryan has had a solid start to the season, the Yankees have a number of batters who are projected to perform well against him.
The top player to consider for a stack is outfielder Aaron Judge, who is priced at $6,500 on Draftkings. Judge has been hitting well on the road, with a batting average of .309 in his last 314 plate appearances over the last year. He’s projected to be hitting second in the order and is a strong candidate to lead the Yankees’ offensive charge.
Another player to consider for a stack is first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who is priced at $4,700 on Draftkings. Rizzo has been on a tear lately, batting .314 in his last 35 at-bats this season. As a left-handed batter, he’s also in a favorable matchup against the right-handed Joe Ryan.
Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is another solid choice for a stack, as he’s projected to be hitting cleanup in the order. While matchup data is limited, it still favors Stanton in this game.
Other Yankees players to consider for a stack include DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, and Franchy Cordero. While not all of these players are projected to perform as strongly as Judge and Rizzo, they all have some positive matchup data against Joe Ryan.
It’s worth noting that Joe Ryan is projected to have a strong game, with a DK projection of 26.37 and an FD projection of 27.85. However, the Yankees have the firepower to potentially give him trouble and rack up some runs.
Overall, the Yankees are an excellent team to target for stacking purposes on Thursday’s MLB DFS slate, especially with the favorable matchup against Joe Ryan. Be sure to consider Judge and Rizzo for your stack, and don’t be afraid to mix in some of the other Yankees players for added depth.
Toronto Blue Jays
Get ready for another explosive Toronto Blue Jays team stack! This time they’re facing off against the Detroit Tigers and pitcher Spencer Turnbull. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. leads the pack with a DK rating of 63.28, projecting to have a big day against Turnbull. But let’s not forget about Bo Bichette who has a solid matchup history against Turnbull, slugging 1.000 with 2 extra base hits in just seven at-bats! George Springer also has a favorable history against left-handers who rely heavily on the changeup, like Turnbull, slugging .528 in his last 41 plate appearances.
Matt Chapman and Daulton Varsho will also look to contribute to this potent offense. Chapman has a good matchup history against Turnbull, slugging .636 with 3 extra base hits in 11 at-bats. However, Varsho has struggled against left-handers who rely heavily on the changeup, like Turnbull, only batting .091 in his last 22 at-bats.
Alejandro Kirk is projected to perform at high rates in several matchup categories today, making him a great value pick for your lineup. Brandon Belt and Kevin Kiermaier have less favorable matchup histories against Turnbull, but don’t count them out entirely. Whit Merrifield has limited matchup data against Turnbull, but what data we do have slightly favors him.
Cavan Biggio, Danny Jansen, Santiago Espinal, and Jordan Luplow are projected to have lesser roles in this high-powered Blue Jays offense, but don’t forget that in baseball, anything can happen. Get ready for an exciting game as the Blue Jays look to continue their hot streak at the plate!
The Philadelphia Phillies are facing off against the Cincinnati Reds, and they have some exciting options in their lineup. Trea Turner is leading off and batting .313 in his last 48 at-bats this season. He’s projected to have a big day against Reds’ starter Nick Lodolo, who is a left-handed pitcher.
Kyle Schwarber is another Phillies player with a great matchup. He has a wOBA of .371 in his last 119 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers with a similar repertoire to Lodolo over the last two seasons. Schwarber has been crushing the ball lately, so he could be a top value pick.
J.T. Realmuto is also in a good spot with Lodolo allowing a slugging percentage of .793 against right-handed batters who hit for power like Realmuto over the last two years.
Nick Castellanos, on the other hand, has struggled at home this year and is projected to have a tougher time against the Phillies. Alec Bohm has been performing well lately with an OPS of .952 in his last 21 at-bats over the last five days.
Bryson Stott has struggled against hard-throwing right-handed pitchers like Lodolo over the last two seasons, but he could still surprise us. Josh Harrison is also projected to have a tough time against Lodolo, but keep an eye on him as he’s been known to come through in clutch situations.
Edmundo Sosa and Cristian Pache have limited matchup data, but the data favors them both. Brandon Marsh is projected to have a tough time against Lodolo, but he’s another player who could surprise us.
Jake Cave has struggled against hard-throwing right-handed pitchers like Lodolo over the last two seasons, but Garrett Stubbs has performed well against left-handed pitchers who allow ground balls like Lodolo.
Overall, the Phillies have some great options in their lineup with players like Turner, Schwarber, and Realmuto in favorable matchups. Don’t be afraid to take a chance on some of the lesser-known players like Bohm or Stubbs, as they could provide great value. Good luck with your picks!
