WATCH: STACK TO CONSIDER CLEVELAND INDIANS


Not a good day for my stacks yesterday, with my top-ranked Dodgers getting shutout, and the Indians getting snubbed from the top-5 and racking up 15 runs. It’s a full 15-game slate again tonight, so back to the drawing board. Feel free to reach out to me on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

1. TORONTO BLUE JAYS

Toronto is projected for more than five and a half runs at home against RHP Kevin Gausman. Gausman’s been a mess this season, entering Tuesday with a 6.47 ERA, which despite one successful start at the Rodgers Centre, jumps to 9.00 on the road. The Jays have smashed this guy during his career, hitting a combined .308 as a team with six different players having gone deep.

Players to Consider

  • Josh Donaldson ($4,100)
  • Justin Smoak ($4,400)
  • Kendrys Morales ($3,900)
  • Troy Tulowitzki ($3,200)
  • Jose Bautista ($3,900)
  • Kevin Pillar ($3,700)


2. CLEVELAND INDIANS

Coming off 15 runs, Cleveland could be a popular stack, and rightfully so, in another great position tonight. The Indians are also projected for more than five and a half runs at home, facing RHP Tyson Ross. Ross has only pitched on two occasions so far this season but has yielded nine runs in just 8.2 innings. He’s fared well against the Indians’ bats in the past but in very limited experience. The Indians were very balanced yesterday with their high scorer getting 22 DKFP during the 15-run outburst, so all hitters are in play.

Players to Consider

  • Jose Ramirez ($4,900)
  • Edwin Encarnacion ($4,500)
  • Lonnie Chisenhall ($4,200)
  • Francisco Lindor ($4,100)
  • Michael Brantley ($4,300)
  • Jason Kipnis ($3,600)

3. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

The Dodgers were a huge bust yesterday, but if that scares people away from them tonight then I like them even more at home against RHP Jesse Chavez. The Dodgers are still projected for more than five runs, and in general, have been crushing these below average RHPs recently. Chavez has a 5.15 ERA on the season, and it jumps to 6.53 on the road.

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($5,600)
  • Corey Seager Q ($5,300)
  • Joc Pederson ($4,400)
  • Chase Utley ($3,200)
  • Justin Turner ($4,700)
  • Chris Taylor ($4,100)


4. BOSTON RED SOX

The Red Sox could be popular tonight at Fenway Park, where they’re projected for a slate-high 6.3 runs. Boston’s in a fantastic situation opposite LHP Hector Santiago, who’s not only been dominated by the Sox in the past but has a 5.26 ERA that climbs to 6.56 in road outings. As a team, the Sox hit .319 against Santiago, with 11 of their 29 hits going for extra bases.

Players to Consider

  • Mookie Betts ($5,100)
  • Mitch Moreland (3,700)
  • Xander Bogaerts ($5,000)
  • Dustin Pedroia ($3,500)
  • Andrew Benintendi ($4,100)
  • Chris Young ($3,500)


5. HOUSTON ASTROS

LHP Sean Manaea has had success against the Astros in his career, but it’s tough not to like Houston at home against a pitcher with an ERA over four. Manaea’s still allowed five runs in 11 innings to the Astros this season, so it’s not like their bats haven’t been able to figure him out. Projected for more than five runs in this one, I really like this spot for ‘Stros RHBs.

Players to Consider

  • George Springer ($5,400)
  • Jose Altuve ($4,900)
  • Carlos Correa ($5,100)
  • Evan Gattis ($3,800)
  • Carlos Beltran ($4,000)
  • Yulieski Gurriel ($3,700)
