Sunday has a very underwhelming group of pitchers going today, which is a perfect recipe for stacking. Let’s take a look at what today has to offer, and as always, you can get me on on the ol’ Twitter machine @SBuchanan24.

1. Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have the highest projected team total outside of Coors Field. At 5.1 projected runs, they will take on Bronson Arroyo. Yes, Arroyo had a decent start his last time out, but I cannot fathom a situation where Arroyo shuts this team down today. The only problem here is that the Cubs are Coors Field-esque in terms of pricing, with three players over $5,000. The Cubs have been hitting the ball extremely well, owning a .328 team wOBA on the road, and should be one of the top stacks on this slate.

Players to Consider

  • Anthony Rizzo ($5,500)
  • Kris Bryant ($5,300)
  • Kyle Schwarber ($5,100)
  • Albert Almora (if Ben Zobrist is out) ($3,800)
  • Jason Heyward ($3,900)


2. San Francisco Giants

I always feel cheap when I start writing about a team stack in Coors Field, but the Giants have the highest run total I’ve seen all season at six. They’re taking on Kyle Freeland, who was smoked at Coors Field against the Padres of all teams for six runs on eight hits in just 4.2 innings. The Giants are full of hitters that hit lefties extremely well, so the high run total could come to fruition this afternoon.

Players to Consider

  • Buster Posey ($4,600)
  • Brandon Belt ($5,300)
  • Hunter Pence ($4,700)
  • Eduardo Nunez ($5,300)
  • Nick Hundley ($4,300)


3. Cleveland Indians

The Indians continue to make this list every time I do this article, and they’ve been paying off. They’ll take on Derek Holland, who’s pitched well in the early going, but I think that will change today. The Indians are stacked with players who hit lefties well, as they currently own the third highest wOBA in the league against them at .339 with a .343 OBP. Holland owns a career .338 wOBA against righties with a .456 SLG.

Players to Consider

  • Edwin Encarnacion ($4,600)
  • Carlos Santana ($4,500)
  • Brandon Guyer ($3,300)
  • Jose Ramirez ($4,100)
  • Francisco Lindor ($4,400)


4. Detroit Tigers

Kyle Gibson will face off against the Tigers for the second time this season after allowing five runs on four hits in just four innings with a 2:1 K: BB ratio. The Tigers will be without their top bat in Miguel Cabrera but have plenty of bats that can do some damage in the interim. Gibson has already allowed four home runs on the season and faces a Tigers team that has five active players with an ISO of at least .180. The ball should be flying in this matchup.

Players to Consider

  • Ian Kinsler ($4,600)
  • Nick Castellanos ($4,000)
  • Justin Upton ($4,400)
  • Victor Martinez ($3,900)
  • Tyler Collins ($2,900)


5. Philadelphia Phillies

This is my YOLO stack of the day, as the Phillies are set to take on Mike Foltynewicz. Folty continues to have issues with his command, as he owns a 4.9 BB/9 in three games thus far this season. The Phillies as a team have a high OBP against righties thus far at .317, which ranks 10th in the league. If anything, I think this stack will be a low owned one and could grab some sneaky points on this slate.

Players to Consider

  • Cesar Hernandez ($3,500)
  • Odubel Herrera ($4,100)
  • Cameron Rupp ($3,300)
  • Michael Saunders ($3,700)
  • Aaron Altherr ($3,600)
