WATCH: STACK TO CONSIDER CLEVELAND INDIANS


Wednesday’s 11-game slate has plenty of offensive options with half the teams projected for five or more runs. Here are my top five teams to stack. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

1. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

What a duo of young power LHB the Dodgers have. Bellinger and Seager have been DOMINATING lately and carrying the rest of the Dodgers’ bats with them. Bellinger has scored 14+ DKFP in seven of his last 10 games (four of them with 28+), a span in which he’s averaging an insane 19.4 DKFP. Seager is fresh off a dazzling three-homer performance last night, which resulted in 53 DKFP — he’s now averaging 15.1 over his last 10. The Mets have another no-name RHP on the mound tonight at Dodger Stadium, so I’ll just keep rolling these guys out there.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($5,200)
  • Corey Seager ($4,700)
  • Chase Utley ($3,300)
  • Justin Turner ($4,500)
  • Chris Taylor ($4,400)
  • Joc Pederson ($4,300)
  • Yasiel Puig ($4,100)


2. COLORADO ROCKIES

The Rockies are projected for more than six runs at Coors Field against RHP Taijuan Walker. Walker was solid at Coors earlier this season, allowing three runs in 5.2 innings (although just one was an earned run). Overall, the Rockies have hit him well in the past, though. Desmond, Gonzalez and Reynolds have all homered off Walker, and the Rockies as a team hit .319 against him.

Players to Consider

  • Carlos Gonzalez ($3,600)
  • Nolan Arenado ($5,500)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,700)
  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,600)
  • Trevor Story ($4,400)
  • Mark Reynolds ($4,400)

3. NEW YORK YANKEES

Outside of homers from Judge (of course) and Sanchez, the Yanks didn’t live up to the hype yesterday. They’ll have a chance again tonight, this time against RHP Ricky Nolasco — who’s ERA has jumped north of five for the season. The top four hitters listed below all have faced Nolasco 20+ times and hit .348 or better against him with three combined homers.

Players to Consider

  • Matt Holiday ($4,400)
  • Didi Gregorius ($4,400)
  • Starlin Castro ($4,400)
  • Chase Headley ($3,900)
  • Gary Sanchez ($4,900)
  • Aaron Judge ($5,400)


4. MINNESOTA TWINS

LHP David Holmberg is on the mound for the White Sox in Minnesota, where the Twins are projected for over five and a half runs. Holmberg isn’t nearly as good as the numbers would suggest this season and is much closer to his career ERA of 5.14. Minnesota’s powerful RHB and switch-hitters should be able to get to him.

Players to Consider

  • Miguel Sano ($3,900)
  • Kennys Vargas ($3,700)
  • Brian Dozier ($4,500)
  • Eduardo Escobar ($4,400)
  • Robbie Grossman ($3,200)
  • Chris Gimenez ($3,200)


5. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

Tough not to mention an offense like Arizona playing at Coors Field. Projected for more than five and a half runs, the only reason I have the D-Backs ranked so low is that RHP Jeff Hoffman is actually having a heck of a season — 2.25 ERA and opposing hitters are batting just .202 against him. This is an elite offense in a ballpark built for offense, though, so the runs should still come. If you want to be super-contrarian, however, give some thought to Hoffman ($6,600) in your lineup.

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,900)
  • Jake Lamb ($5,600)
  • David Peralta ($5,000)
  • Gregor Blanco ($4,600)
  • Chris Owings ($4,600)
  • Chris Iannetta ($4,300)
