Top MLB DFS Stacks

1. New York Mets vs. Patrick Corbin

  • Key Players: Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso, J.D. Martinez
  • Insights:
    • Patrick Corbin is having another rough season with an ERA over 5.00. His struggles are particularly pronounced against right-handed batters, who are hitting .308 against him this year.
    • Francisco Lindor has a .900+ OPS against lefties in the past two years, making him a prime target.
    • Pete Alonso is still slugging .522 against southpaws, despite his overall numbers being down. His home slugging percentage is also solid at .491.
    • J.D. Martinez boasts a .967 OPS versus lefties since 2022 and has a .925 OPS at Citi Field this season.

2. Cincinnati Reds vs. Kyle Freeland

  • Key Players: Spencer Steer, Jonathan India, Tyler Stephenson
  • Insights:
    • Kyle Freeland has a 6.62 ERA through seven starts and an alarming 11.94 ERA on the road. Right-handed batters are hitting over .300 against him.
    • Spencer Steer shines with a .899 OPS against lefties and offers power-speed upside with 14 homers and 13 stolen bases.
    • Jonathan India has an 1.083 OPS over the last three weeks and a .781 OPS at home since 2022.
    • Tyler Stephenson provides value with a .797 OPS versus lefties and a .767 OPS at home over the last three seasons.

3. Texas Rangers vs. Griffin Canning

  • Key Players: Marcus Semien, Corey Seager, Wyatt Langford
  • Insights:
    • Griffin Canning has a low strikeout rate (15.8%) and high walk rate (8%), combined with a high home run rate (1.6 HR/9), making him an ideal target.
    • Marcus Semien and Corey Seager are top-tier hitters who can exploit Canning’s weaknesses.
    • Wyatt Langford adds value as a lower-priced option with potential upside in this favorable matchup.

Under-the-Radar Stacks

1. Houston Astros vs. Bryan Hoeing

  • Key Players: Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Yordan Alvarez
  • Insights:
    • Bryan Hoeing and the Marlins’ bullpen are exploitable, providing a great opportunity for the Astros’ hitters.
    • Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman offer stability and upside against right-handed pitching.
    • Yordan Alvarez is a top play with his .447 xwOBA, making him a must-target in this matchup.

2. Los Angeles Angels vs. Michael Lorenzen

  • Key Players: Taylor Ward, Logan O’Hoppe, Jo Adell
  • Insights:
    • Michael Lorenzen has been fortunate with a .220 BABIP but his underlying metrics (17.7% K and 11.4% BB) indicate regression.
    • Taylor Ward and Logan O’Hoppe are primed to take advantage of Lorenzen’s weaknesses, especially considering his poor splits against right-handed batters.
    • Jo Adell offers value as a budget-friendly option with power potential.
