1. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

Although it lost yesterday, Arizona has been dominant at home this season and projects for 5.4 runs tonight. LHP Matt Boyd’s having a solid year by his standards, but is still yielding a 5.68 ERA on the road. RHB are hitting just .243 against Boyd in 2017, but you need to dive deeper into the numbers to get the full impact. Fifteen walks up that number to a .333 on-base percentage, while RHB have been crushing Boyd for power with 10-of-26 hits going for extra bases (five doubles, two triples, three homers).

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($4,700)
  • A.J. Pollock ($3,900)
  • Chris Owings ($3,700)
  • Yasmany Tomas ($3,700)
  • Brandon Drury ($3,300)
  • Jake Lamb ($4,000)


2. MILWAUKEE BREWERS

The Brew Crew is fresh off 11 runs yesterday, and are projected for 5.1 tonight at home against RHP Kyle Kendrick. Kendrick had a brutal debut for the Sox, allowing six runs in four innings in his first game pitched since 2015 (13.50 ERA). Ryan Braun dominated Kendrick back in his NL days, going 9-for-21 with a pair of bombs, a double and a walk. He’s where I’d start my stack.

Players to Consider

  • Ryan Braun ($4,900)
  • Eric Thames ($4,600)
  • Jonathan Villar ($4,100)
  • Travis Shaw ($3,500)
  • Domingo Santana ($3,300)
  • Keon Broxton ($3,800)

3. TEXAS RANGERS

RHP Luis Perdomo has pitched about a run and a half below his 5.49 career ERA so far this season, but has still been crushed by LHB — who have a .436 on-base percentage. The Rangers are at home a day after scoring 11 runs as well, and have plenty of LHB to throw Perdomo off guard. I like stacking up as many of those guys as you can.

Players to Consider

  • Joey Gallo ($3,700)
  • Shin-Soo Choo ($3,600)
  • Rougned Odor ($4,300)
    *Nomar Mazara ($3,600)
  • Elvis Andrus ($3,800)
  • Carlos Gomez ($3,800)


4. LOS ANGELES DODGERS

Like the Rangers, the Dodgers have a ton of dangerous LHB, which is a great thing to have against RHP Chad Kuhl. Kuhl is allowing LHB to hit an outrageous .413 this season, including a .509 on-base percentage. Out of those 19 hits, nine of them are for extra bases — six doubles, two triples and a homer. Stack ‘em up!

Players to Consider

  • Cody Bellinger ($3,900)
  • Joc Pederson ($3,600)
  • Corey Seager ($4,600)
  • Justin Turner ($3,800)
  • Yasmani Grandal ($3,700)
  • Chase Utley ($3,300)


5. BOSTON RED SOX

The Sox lost to the Brewers yesterday, but still managed seven runs — which is they fewest they’ve scored since shaking up the top of their order. RHP Chase Anderson is off to a fantastic start this season, but shutting down the Sox is a tall task. Projected for 4.6 runs, Boston likely knows its going to have to produce on offense with Kendrick on the mound.

Players to Consider

  • Mookie Betts ($5,200)
  • Andrew Benintendi ($4,400)
  • Dustin Pedroia ($4,200)
  • Xander Bogaerts ($4,700)
  • Hanley Ramirez ($4,800)
  • Jackie Bradley Jr. ($4,500)
