Here are five different hitting stacks fantasy owners can consider using on DraftKings’ main slate on Wednesday:

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers have been the league’s best offense against right-handed pitching, and they will face a below-average right-hander Wednesday. While Angels RHP Jaime Barria ($6,300) doesn’t appear to have pitched quite as poorly as his 7.36 ERA indicates, his peripheral statistics are still poor. Barria’s 4.62 FIP is worse than average on the back of an elevated home run rate, which has contributed to allowing opponents to post an isolated power of .235 against him, which indicates Barria has been prone to giving up a lot of extra-base hits. Barria has allowed poor contact quality, allowing batters to produce an expected wOBA of .343 based on the exit velocities and angles of their batted balls, higher than the league average of .320. Barria’s proneness to allowing extra-base hits puts the Dodgers, who have outstanding power numbers against righties, in a good spot. The Angels’ bullpen also has posted the eighth highest home run rate allowed.

Players to consider

Cody Bellinger ($5,800)
Max Muncy ($5,100)
Joc Pederson ($4,600)
Justin Turner ($4,400)
Alex Verdugo ($4,200)
Corey Seager ($4,000)


2. Washington Nationals

Rockies left-handed pitcher Kyle Freeland ($5,200) is expected to take the hill for Game 2 of Wednesday’s doubleheader. Freeland has struggled badly this season, and it hasn’t only been due to Coors Field’s horrible pitching environment, as Freeland has posted below-average numbers on the road. Away from Coors Field, Freeland has been home run prone, allowing more than two home runs per nine innings, which has contributed to an elevated .226 isolated power allowed to opponents, indicating a proneness to allowing extra-base hits. Freeland has allowed batters to produce an expected wOBA of .358 based on their contact quality on the road, worse than the league average of .320. Freeland’s 5.61 FIP on the road is also poor. As a LHP, Nationals’ right-handed batters are the preferred option, although Freeland also has struggled vs. lefties this season.

Players to consider

Anthony Rendon ($5,400)
Trea Turner ($5,100)
Juan Soto ($4,900)
Victor Robles ($4,400)
Brian Dozier ($3,900)


3. Minnesota Twins

The Twins have been baseball’s second best offense vs. left-handed pitching by wOBA and the top power offense vs. LHPs by isolated power, and they’ll face a LHP in J.A. Happ ($7,200), who has been below average this season. Happ’s 5.12 FIP is worse than average on the back of an elevated home run rate, which has contributed to a poor .212 isolated power allowed to batters. Happ’s proneness to allowing extra-base hits against the top offense at generating extra-base hits vs. LHPs makes for a solid spot for Minnesota.

Players to consider

Max Kepler ($5,200)
Mitch Garver ($5,100)
Nelson Cruz ($4,900)
Jorge Polanco ($4,600)
Miguel Sano ($4,500)


4. Atlanta Braves

The Braves have a matchup against Royals RHP Brad Keller ($6,600), who has mediocre numbers this season. Keller has struck out just 17% of batters, contributing to an unimposing 4.39 FIP. Keller has allowed poor contact quality, allowing batters to produce an expected wOBA of .339 based on the exit velocities and angles of their batted balls, higher than the league average of .320. The Braves have had a strong offense vs. righties, ranking sixth best by wOBA and 10th best by isolated power.

Players to consider

Ronald Acuna Jr. ($5,700)
Freddie Freeman ($5,300)
Josh Donaldson ($5,100)
Dansby Swanson ($4,300)
Ozzie Albies ($4,300)


5. New York Yankees

The Yankees are getting a park downgrade on the road against RHP Jake Odorizzi ($8,600), which does not appear to be a prime spot given Odorizzi’s better-than-average numbers this season. That said, the Yankees’ offense is so good they are a stack option against most non-elite pitchers. The Yankees have the league’s best offense by wOBA over the past 30 days, posting an explosive .375 wOBA with a .227 isolated power, both the best marks among teams over that period.

Players to consider

Aaron Judge ($5,000)
DJ LeMahieu ($5,000)
Edwin Encarnacion ($4,900)
Aaron Hicks ($4,300)
Luke Voit ($4,300)
Gleyber Torres ($4,200)
Didi Gregorius ($3,900)
