WATCH: STACK TO CONSIDER NEW YORK YANKEES


Tuesday brings a full 15-game slate with a ton of stacking potential. Thirteen teams are projected for five or more runs! Here are my top-five teams to stack tonight. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

1. NEW YORK YANKEES

It’s a huge night for run projections, and the Yankees lead the way by a slim margin up at 6.3 runs. They’re at home going up against RHP Parker Bridwell, who actually has faced the Yankees in one of his two outings this season and allowed just one run in 3.2 innings. The Yanks hit him well, though, going 7-for-15 as a team. Bridle’s career ERA of 5.54 suggests his two starts this season have been a fluke. I’m looking for New York’s bats to take advantage.

Players to Consider

  • Aaron Judge ($5,400)
  • Brett Gardner ($4,100)
  • Aaron Hicks ($4,400)
  • Matt Holiday ($4,400)
  • Starlin Castro ($4,500)
  • Gary Sanchez ($4,900)


2. CLEVELAND INDIANS

The Indians are right behind the Yankees, projected for 6.1 runs in Baltimore. RHP Chris Tillman will take his 8.07 ERA to the mound for the O’s (12.56 ERA in night games this season). Edwin Encarnation, in particular, has enjoyed facing Tillman in his career — 17-for-58 (.293) with three doubles and three bombs. Jason Kipnis also has a pair of homers off him in just 14 at-bats.

Players to Consider

  • Edwin Encarnacion ($4,700)
  • Jason Kipnis ($3,900)
  • Jose Ramirez ($4,900)
  • Francisco Lindor ($4,400)
  • Lonnie Chisenhall ($4,000)
  • Carlos Santana ($4,100)

3. COLORADO ROCKIES

This slate is so juicy even two great offenses at Coors Field aren’t tonight’s top stacks. The Rockies will face RHP Zack Greinke, which should scare some away. But besides the Coors effect, the Rockies’ bats have actually hit Greinke around pretty well in the past. Five different members of the lineup have gone yard against the ace, including four homers from Carlos Gonzalez (13-for-36), four from Mark Reynolds (7-for-27) and three from Trevor Story (5-for-15).

Players to Consider

  • Carlos Gonzalez ($3,600)
  • Nolan Arenado ($5,500)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,700)
  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,600)
  • Trevor Story ($4,300)
  • Mark Reynolds ($4,600)


4. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

In the other dugout, we have the D-Backs sizing up RHP German Marquez. Marquez has a 5.70 ERA at Coors this season, although he has allowed just five runs to Arizona in 12 innings against them this season. Paul Goldschmidt could be a staple in your stack, going 4-for-5 against Marquez with a pair of dingers.

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,800)
  • Jake Lamb ($5,600)
  • David Peralta ($5,000)
  • Gregor Blanco ($4,900)
  • Daniel Descalso ($3,700)
  • Chris Owings ($4,600)


5. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

The Dodgers went off for 10 runs against the Mets last night, thanks to a pair of homers from Cody Bellinger (35 DKFP) and a huge night from Justin Turner (33 DKFP). Tough to argue they’re not in a great spot once again, this time against RHP Robert Gsellman. Gsellman’s 5.50 ERA rises to 6.33 away from home and 6.79 in evening games. Combine that information with the fact the Dodgers love crushing RHP, and this bodes well for another big night at Dodger Stadium.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($5,200)
  • Corey Seager ($4,900)
  • Chase Utley ($3,300)
  • Justin Turner ($4,500)
  • Chris Taylor ($4,400)
  • Joc Pederson ($4,300)
