WATCH: BvP BREAKDOWN


After a light slate yesterday, we’ve got 14 games on Tuesday’s main slate. Just beware of the crummy weather across the East Coast, as some games are likely to be impacted. Even the weather at Coors Field is in question, although the outlook there seems to be better than it is out east. Regardless, there are still plenty of great stacking options tonight. Below are my top-5.

1. Arizona Diamondbacks

If you haven’t noticed by now, I love the idea of stacking the D-Backs at home. This isn’t just a theory, though. Arizona has scored 81 runs at home this season in just 11 games! The next closest team in all of MLB is Tampa, which has scored 67 runs in 13 home games. The Diamondbacks also hit an MLB-best .314 at home as a team, with the Red Sox being the only other team that hits above .289. They’re my top option tonight against Clayton Richard, whom they’ve had some success against in the past.

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,000)
  • Yasmany Tomas ($4,000)
  • A.J. Pollock ($4,300)
  • Chris Owings ($3,600)
  • David Peralta ($3,800)
  • Chris Iannetta ($2,800)


2. Washington Nationals

The Rockies topped the Nats 8-4 last night, but Bryce Harper had the night off aside from one at-bat. I’d love to be contrarian and try and go against Coors, but it’s not like these teams are rolling their aces out to the mound. RHP German Marquez will get the start for Colorado, who’s allowed 12 runs in 20.2 innings so far this season. Marquez will have the nearly impossible task of getting through the Nats’ trio of LHB.

Players to Consider

  • Bryce Harper ($6,100)
  • Daniel Murphy ($5,500)
  • Adam Eaton ($5,300)
  • Ryan Zimmerman ($5,000)
  • Trea Turner ($5,100)
  • Jayson Werth ($4,800)

3. Colorado Rockies

The Nationals aren’t putting much better of an option on the hill tonight, as Joe Ross will get the nod. Ross has a solid 3.86 ERA, and only let up nine HRs in 402 at-bats last season. But the Coors effect is real, and if LHBs are able to get the ball in flight against him, we could see some leave the park.

Players to Consider

  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,200)
  • Carlos Gonzalez ($4,900)
  • Gerardo Parra ($4,000)
  • Tony Wolters ($3,100)
  • Mark Reynolds ($4,400)
  • Nolan Arenado ($5,400)


4. Cincinnati Reds

The Brewers went nuts last night, dropping 11 runs on the Reds, but don’t ignore the seven runs Cincy put up. And tonight their situation looks even better opposite Zach Davies, who’s sporting an 8.24 ERA entering this one. Milwaukee is a great park to hit in, and both Joey Votto and Adam Duvall are both 5-for-14 (.357) with an HR against Davies in their careers.

Players to Consider

  • Joey Votto ($4,900)
  • Adam Duvall ($4,300)
  • Billy Hamilton ($4,200)
  • Jose Peraza ($3,900)
  • Eugenio Suarez ($3,700)
  • Scott Schebler ($3,800)


5. San Diego Padres

As much as I love the Diamondbacks, we can’t forget about the Padres, who did put up six runs of their own in Arizona last night. Current San Diego players hit .318 in 66 career at-bats against LHP Patrick Corbin, and this hitter’s park should only help them. If I’m right about the D-Backs, the Padres are going to have to put some extra effort into scoring runs to even have a chance.

Players to Consider

  • Wil Myers ($4,900)
  • Manuel Margot ($3,700)
  • Yangervis Solarte ($3,800)
  • Austin Hedges ($2,900)
  • Erick Aybar ($2,800)
  • Hunter Renfroe ($3,600)
