MLB Top Stacks (Quick Overview)

Happy Sunday everyone! Today we have a fun 11 game slate to break down. On this early morning update we do not have any confirmed lineups, but we can see the Red are currently ranked as the #1 stack in their matchup vs Nationals left hander Patrick Corbin. We’ll get a better picture later this morning as more lineups are announced so stay tune.

Brewers vs Cubs RHP Adrian Sampson

Adrian Sampson enters today’s matchup with a 4.85 xfip and just a 19.1% strikeout rate. Against right handed hitters he has allowed a 349 woba 224 iso 39% fly ball rate and 43% hard contact rate since the 2021 season

Willy Adames has always hit righties well, and since the 2021 season he has a 428 xwoba 232 iso and 42% hard contact rate against righties. 

The Brewers have a few left handed hitters that smash right handed pitching as well. Rowdy Tellez, since 2021 has a 419 xwoba 247 iso and 45% hard contact rate

Obviously, former MVP Christian Yelich should be a considered whenever you’re thinking of stacking the Brewers. Over the last 30 days Yelich has a 383 woba 172 iso and 45% hard contact rate vs righties. 

Rangers vs Tigers RHP Drew Hutchison

Since the start of the 2021 season Drew Hutchison has a 5.78 xfip and only a 13.9% strikeout rate. Against left handed hitters in that span he has allowed a 157 iso 40% fly ball rate and a 40% hard contact rate

All Star shortstop Corey Seager is in a great spot here vs Hutchison. Since 2021 Seager has a 455 xwoba 206 iso and 47% hard contact rate vs right handed pitching. 

Nathaniel Lowe has been on fire recently vs right handed pitching. Over the last 30 days he has a 592 xwoba 260 iso and a 44% hard contact rate

Are you ready to dominate?

The MLB Study Hub is my #1 source for research every single day and is one of the VIP Only tools our members have access to daily.

Within the Study Hub you will see today’s MLB Projections for every player along with advanced MLB Statistics like wOBA and ISO vs the Handedness of today’s starting pitcher.

Ownership Projections are included, along with a letter grade ranking system for every player on the slate.

Blue Jays vs Angels LHP Tucker Davidson

Tucker Davidson has only faced 55 left handed and 168 right handed hitters since the start of the 2021 season. His numbers don’t look too bad, only allowing a 317 woba 124 iso to righties and a 311 woba 122 iso to lefties, but, his 6.17 xfip and 13.9% strikeout rate are pretty awful, so I think we can target him today with some of these Blue Jays hitters

As we look at some of the numbers Since 2021 there are several Blue Jays we can target. I will highlight a few below, but damn near the entire lineup is in play here as they all handle left handed pitching very well. 

George Springer – 363/224/40%
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 384/228/43%
Teoscar Hernandez – 444/358/48%
Matt Chapman – 335/247/45%

I’ll be loading up on the Blue Jays in this matchup today. 

Rankings Today

These rankings are not site-specific and are intended to give you a solid pool of players to build your lineups from. I’ll be using the standard positions, Catcher through Outfield in these rankings so be aware of that if you’re constructing teams on Draftkings where some players can play multiple positions.

Something I like to do with this, is to give these players a THUMBS UP or 2, or 3, in Fantasy Cruncher so I can get more exposure to them throughout my lineups
