Another nine-game slate tonight with a fresh series firing up at Coors Field. That’s not the only ballpark you want to target, though. Below are my top-five stacks.

The Rockies are projected for 5.4 runs at Coors, going up against LHP Hyun-jin Ryu. Ryu has a 4.11 ERA on the road this season, and he has struggled with some of the big names on the Rockies in the past. Charlie Blackmon is 6-for-15 against him with a pair of doubles, while Nolan Arenado is 6-for-12 with two doubles and two homers. Those two guys seem like a good place to start.

Players to Consider

  • Nolan Arenado ($5,300)
  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,200)
  • Carlos Gonzalez ($4,700)
  • Mark Reynolds ($5,000)
  • Ian Desmond ($4,800)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,900)


The Giants are at home tonight against the 40-year old RHP Bronson Arroyo, who’s been an absolute mess on the road this season — 11.25 ERA. The old timer has seen seven pitches leave the park in his 30 innings so far this season, so we can almost count on some home run action. Five Giants hit .292 or better in 12 or more career at-bats against Arroyo.

Players to Consider

  • Hunter Pence ($3,900)
  • Buster Posey ($3,800)
  • Brandon Belt ($3,700)
  • Brandon Crawford ($3,400)
  • Joe Panik ($3,600)
  • Nick Hundley ($3,000)



Nothing new to see here. The Diamondbacks are at home and that means they’re a top stack option. They will face Pittsburgh ace Gerrit Cole, but don’t let that scare you. The RHP has been solid, no doubt, but his ERA jumps to 4.30 on the road, and Arizona is one of the best home-field advantages in MLB. Cole is consistent against both sides of the plate, so you can stack ‘em up how you please. Beware that Goldy is only 1-for-11 against Cole in his career, though.

Players to Consider

  • Jake Lamb ($4,600)
  • David Peralta ($3,600)
  • A.J. Pollock ($4,600)
  • Yasmany Thomas ($4,000)
  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,200)
  • Chris Owings ($3,900)


The Dodgers are at Coors and projected for 5.2 runs. The good news is that LHP Tyler Anderson has a 6.69 ERA this season. The bad news is that the Dodgers do tend to struggle with LHP, and Anderson’s ERA actually slightly improves at home (5.40). There could be high ownership here, and I’m concerned that the matchup appears to be a little bit better than it really is. This is still a very good lineup facing a below average pitcher in the best park for hitters.

Players to Consider

  • Justin Turner ($5,100)
  • Corey Seager ($5,400)
  • Cody Bellinger ($4,900)
  • Chris Taylor ($4,400)
  • Yasiel Puig ($5,000)
  • Austin Barnes ($4,000)


The Rangers are projected for a sneaky five runs at home against LHP Clayton Richard. Although Texas has a lot of tempting LHB, you can certainly target RHB here as it’s clearly been Richard’s weakness — .412 on-base percentage and 15 extra-base hits (five homers). For comparison, he hasn’t allowed an extra-base hit to a LHB yet this season. Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy have both homered of Richard in the past in limited at-bats.

Players to Consider

  • Carlos Gomez($4,400)
  • Johnathan Lucroy ($3,700)
  • Mike Napoli ($4,100)
  • Ryan Rua ($3,000)
  • Elvis Andrus ($4,000)
  • Delino DeShields ($4,100)
