Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto Blue Jays stack. The Blue Jays have a favorable matchup against left-hander Kris Bubic of the Kansas City Royals, and their right-handed hitters could have a field day against him. George Springer, Bo Bichette, and Alejandro Kirk are all excellent options to consider for stacking.
Springer has been on fire against bottom-tier lefties, with a slugging percentage of .654 in his last 57 plate appearances. He has a DK salary of $5,000, a DK rating of 91.09, and a DK projection of 9.93.

He has a DK salary of $4,900, a DK rating of 95.80, and a DK projection of 9.88.
Kirk has been slugging .541 in his last 41 plate appearances against bottom-tier lefties, making him a great value option with a DK salary of $3,400. He has a DK rating of 96.59 and a DK projection of 8.03.
Overall, the Blue Jays stack presents a lot of potential against Bubic and the Royals. Springer, Bichette, and Kirk are all strong options with favorable matchups, making them great choices for a stack. Additionally, Toronto’s lineup has several other solid hitters, including Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could also be considered for stacking.
Boston Red Sox
Boston Red Sox could potentially be a top stack for today’s games. Their offense has a favorable matchup against Roansy Contreras of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who has allowed a slugging percentage of .636 against right-handed batters who hit the ball in the air often like Justin Turner over the last two years. The Red Sox also have several players with strong matchups against Contreras, such as Rafael Devers, who is slugging .593 in his last 97 plate appearances against right-handers who rely heavily on both the slider and curve, and Alex Verdugo, who has an OPS of .836 in 309 at-bats against right-handers with high flyball rates like Contreras.
Moreover, pitchers with similar repertoires to Contreras have an ERA of 4.91 against the Red Sox over the last year, suggesting that the Red Sox offense has a good chance of putting up runs against him. Other Red Sox batters, such as Adam Duvall, Triston Casas, and Christian Arroyo, also have favorable matchups against Contreras. Overall, based on these stats, the Red Sox could potentially be a top stack for today’s slate of games.
The Houston Astros are poised for a strong performance against Detroit Tigers’ right-hander Matt Manning, who has a low strikeout rate and has struggled against right-handed batters. Two right-handed hitters to consider targeting are Jose Abreu and Alex Bregman. Abreu has a wOBA of .376 in his last 373 plate appearances against right-handers with low strikeout rates like Manning. Meanwhile, Bregman has a wOBA of .345 in his last 156 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers with a similar repertoire to Manning over the last two seasons.
Yordan Alvarez and Kyle Tucker are also strong options to consider. Alvarez is slugging .655 in his last 170 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers with a similar repertoire to Manning over the last two seasons, while Tucker is slugging .581 in his last 256 plate appearances against right-handers with low strikeout rates like Manning over the same period.
Additionally, Chas McCormick is a low-cost option worth considering. Manning has allowed a wOBA of just .236 against right-handed batters who hit for high average like McCormick over the last two years.
Overall, the Astros have a favorable matchup against Manning, and these hitters are well-positioned to take advantage of his weaknesses.
The Dodgers stack looks promising for today’s game against the Colorado Rockies. Several Dodgers players have strong matchup advantages against Rockies pitcher German Marquez. Mookie Betts is projected to perform well in multiple categories and is the top-ranked batter for the Dodgers.
Left-handed hitter Freddie Freeman has a favorable matchup against Marquez, who has allowed a slugging percentage of .553 against left-handed batters with high ISOs. However, catcher Will Smith has struggled against right-handers who rely heavily on both the slider and curve like Marquez.
Outfielder J.D. Martinez also has a favorable matchup, while outfielder David Peralta has an OPS of .928 in 49 at-bats against Marquez over the last 2 seasons. Other batters, including Max Muncy and Miguel Rojas, have less favorable matchups against Marquez.
Overall, the Dodgers stack looks strong and has the potential to score a high number of fantasy points in today’s game.
