We’ve got only six games on tonight’s slate, but there are plenty of stackable options. Without all of the typical choices, and no team on the slate even projected for five runs, you should be able to differentiate a bit with whatever stack you decide to go with.

Hit me up on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

Here are my top-five stacks:


1. Baltimore Orioles

The O’s dropped 12 runs at Fenway Park last night, and now find themselves in another hitter-friendly park in Toronto. They’ll be facing Francisco Liriano — who (no joke) has a 135.00 ERA so far this season after letting up five runs and recording just one out in his first start. That was good for -11.5 DKFP. Liriano has a history of getting smacked around by O’s players, particularly Jones and Castillo, who’ve combined for five homers against him in 40 at-bats.

Players to Consider

  • Adam Jones ($3,900)
  • Welington Castillo ($3,500)
  • Chris Davis ($4,100)
  • Mark Trumbo ($4,000)
  • Craig Gentry ($3,700)
  • Manny Machado ($4,700)

2. New York Yankees

The wind should be blowing out to that short fence at Yankee Stadium tonight, which means a good night for the long ball. The Yankees have hit Matt Andriese well in the past, and Andriese isn’t off to a great start this season. It couldn’t be a more perfect night for LHB in this stadium (even on the Rays’ side as well).

Players to Consider

  • Chase Headley ($3,300)
  • Jacoby Ellsbury ($3,900)
  • Greg Bird ($3,500)
  • Aaron Hicks ($3,000)
  • Aaron Judge ($3,900)
  • Brett Gardner ($4,000 — listed as DTD)


3. Milwaukee Brewers

Another good game to consider stacking both sides of is Brewers/Reds in Cincy. Bronson Arroyo will take the mound for the Reds after getting demolished for six earned runs in just four innings in his first start. The Brewers will look to take advantage in a great ballpark for hitters.

Players to Consider

  • Ryan Braun ($5,100)
  • Jonathan Villar ($4,700)
  • Eric Thames ($4,000)
  • Travis Shaw ($3,800)
  • Domingo Santana ($4,200)
  • Keon Broxton ($4,300)

4. Cincinnati Reds

Jimmy Nelson actually performed very well for Milwaukee in his first start of the season, but that could change tonight in Cincy. I like the Reds for a lot of the same reasons I like the Brewers — facing mediocre pitching in a good park for hitting. Nelson has reverse splits, so don’t worry about using bats from either side of the dish.

Players to Consider

  • Adam Duvall ($4,400)
  • Eugenio Suarez ($3,700)
  • Joey Votto ($4,900)
  • Billy Hamilton ($4,300)
  • Jose Peraza ($4,000)
  • Scott Schebler ($3,800)

5. Kansas City Royals

The Royals are at home facing RHP Jesse Hahn and the A’s. KC is actually projected for the most runs on this slate at 4.8, although a lot of the teams above are pretty close behind. LHB had a .407 on-base percentage against Hahn in 2016, so that’s where I’d be starting my Royals stack …

Players to Consider

  • Alex Gordon ($3,900)
  • Mike Moustakas ($3,400)
  • Eric Hosmer ($4,200)
  • Brandon Moss ($3,800)
  • Salvador Perez ($3,600)
  • Lorenzo Cain ($4,200)
