mlb dfs top stacks

Welcome to our article featuring the top MLB DFS stacks for Wednesday, May 10th, 2023. In this piece, we will analyze the best team stacks to consider for your daily fantasy baseball lineup, based on player performance and matchup data. Whether you’re a seasoned DFS player or just starting out, our analysis will provide valuable insights to help you make informed decisions and increase your chances of winning.

Astros vs Griffin Canning

The Houston Astros are an excellent stack to consider for today’s MLB DFS slate, especially against the LAA Angels pitcher Griffin Canning. The Astros have a track record of performing well against bottom-tier right-handed pitchers like Canning, with a team OPS of .855 over the last two years. This suggests that they should have a favorable matchup against Canning, who has struggled against similar batters.

When targeting players within the Astros stack, Yordan Alvarez and Kyle Tucker are top picks. Alvarez has been slugging .596 in his last 167 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers with a similar repertoire to Canning over the past two seasons. Meanwhile, Tucker has been slugging .650 in his last 118 plate appearances against bottom-tier right-handers like Canning over the same period. Both players are expected to bat in the middle of the Astros lineup and could provide significant upside for your DFS lineup.

Alex Bregman and Jeremy Pena are also strong options to consider within the Astros stack. Bregman has been slugging .596 in his last 113 plate appearances against bottom-tier right-handers like Canning over the past two seasons. Pena, a potential value play, has been slugging .589 in his last 94 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers with a similar repertoire to Canning over the past two seasons.

While there are no low-owned value plays within the Astros stack, Chas McCormick and Martin Maldonado are potential differentiators in tournaments. McCormick has a positive matchup history against Canning, but has struggled against bottom-tier right-handers over the past two seasons. Maldonado has a lower salary and is a less popular option, but has also struggled against right-handers with average flyball rates like Canning over the past two seasons.

Overall, the Astros stack has a high projected rating on DraftKings, making them a top choice for today’s MLB DFS slate.

Yankees vs Kyle Muller

The New York Yankees are a potential stack to consider for today’s MLB DFS slate, particularly against the Atlanta Braves pitcher Kyle Muller. The Yankees hitters have a favorable matchup against Muller, with a 3.5 star average matchup rating. Left-handed batters with high ISOs, like Anthony Rizzo, have performed well against Muller in the past, with an OPS of .977 over the last two seasons. Right-handed batters who hit for high average, like DJ LeMahieu, have also done well against Muller, with an OPS of .906 over the same period.

Aaron Judge is another top pick for the Yankees stack. He performs well in several matchup categories today and has a high projected rating on DraftKings. Gleyber Torres is also a viable option, as Muller has allowed a slugging percentage of .500 against hitters like Torres over the last two years. However, Torres has a Well-Hit Rate of just 8.3% against left-handers who rely heavily on both the slider and curve like Muller.

While there are no low-owned value plays within the Yankees stack, Chas McCormick and Martin Maldonado are potential differentiators in tournaments. McCormick has a positive matchup history against Canning, but has struggled against bottom-tier right-handers over the past two seasons. Maldonado has a lower salary and is a less popular option, but has also struggled against right-handers with average flyball rates like Canning over the past two seasons.

Overall, the Yankees stack has a high projected rating on DraftKings, making them a strong choice for today’s MLB DFS slate. However, it is important to note that some of the players, such as Harrison Bader and Anthony Volpe, have lower projected ratings and may not be as reliable in terms of fantasy points.

Dodgers vs Wade Miley

The Los Angeles Dodgers stack looks promising for today’s MLB DFS slate against the Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Wade Miley. Left-handed starters like Miley, who have above-average groundball rates, have an ERA of 4.97 against the Dodgers since last year. Therefore, the Dodgers have a favorable matchup against Miley.

Mookie Betts is a top pick within the Dodgers stack. He has an impressive track record of slugging .737 in his last 23 plate appearances against left-handers who rely heavily on the cutter like Miley over the last two seasons. Freddie Freeman is another solid pick, with a .600 slugging percentage and four extra base hits in 20 at-bats against Miley.

Will Smith and Chris Taylor are also strong options to consider within the Dodgers stack. Smith has been slugging .631 in his last 73 plate appearances against left-handers with low strikeout rates like Miley over the last two seasons. Meanwhile, Taylor has a .750 slugging percentage in his last 18 plate appearances against left-handers who rely heavily on the cutter like Miley over the same period.

Max Muncy, on the other hand, has struggled against Miley with just one hit in seven at-bats. James Outman, Miguel Rojas, and Austin Barnes are low-owned value plays that could help differentiate your DFS lineup, but their projected ratings are lower than the other Dodgers’ batters.

Overall, the Dodgers stack has a high projected rating on DraftKings, making them a top choice for today’s MLB DFS slate.

Pirates vs Antonio Senzatela

The Pittsburgh Pirates are facing Antonio Senzatela of the Colorado Rockies in their upcoming game, and there are a few batters on the Pirates’ roster who are worth considering for a stack.

Bryan Reynolds is projected to bat second and has been slugging .581 in his last 300 plate appearances against right-handers with low strikeout rates like Senzatela over the past two seasons. Ke’Bryan Hayes is projected to bat first and has an OPS of .898 against Senzatela in the same timeframe.

Jack Suwinski is projected to bat sixth and has been slugging .516 in 91 at-bats since last season, although he has been struggling in his last five games. Andrew McCutchen, projected to bat third, has struggled against Senzatela in the past, batting just .154 in 13 at-bats.

Carlos Santana is projected to bat fourth but has been batting just .208 against right-handers with low strikeout rates over the past two seasons. Connor Joe, projected to bat fifth, has been struggling recently, batting just .188 in his last 48 at-bats.

Ji-Hwan Bae and Rodolfo Castro are projected to bat eighth and seventh respectively, with limited matchup data available. Austin Hedges is projected to bat ninth and has been batting just .183 against right-handers who rely heavily on the slider like Senzatela.

Tucupita Marcano and Miguel Andujar are potential batters to consider, but they have limited data available. Finally, Chris Owings has limited matchup data available, but the data that is available favors Senzatela.

Overall, Reynolds and Hayes are the strongest considerations for a Pirates stack against Senzatela, with Suwinski potentially adding value if he can regain his form from earlier in the season.
