Tonight brings us 11 games with some very similar situations to stack as last night, starting with the windy city getting even windier. Hit me up on Twitter with comments or questions: @julianedlow.

1. CHICAGO CUBS

As I’m writing this, the wind is anticipated to be blowing out to left field at 21 MPH at Wrigley Field tonight. For that reason, the Cubs are projected for an insane 7.2 runs against RHP Scott Feldman. Chicago managed to beat Cincy 9-5 last night, and I’m looking for more of the same tonight … maybe even more runs. Clearly, you want to target power here.

Players to Consider

  • Anthony Rizzo ($4,400)
  • Kris Bryant ($5,100)
  • Kyle Schwarber ($3,800)
  • Ben Zobrist ($3,600)
  • Addison Russell ($3,300)
  • Willson Contreras ($3,100)


2. DETROIT TIGERS

The O’s beat the Tigers 13-11 last night, and although you don’t want to build a stack based on yesterday’s matchup, these teams are both swinging the bats pretty well. Detroit has a great opportunity here against RHP Ubaldo Jimenez, who they have torched in the past. All of the names you see listed below have had success against Jimenez in their careers, which is why the Tigers are projected for 5.2 runs tonight. The most dominant of the group by far has been Victor Martinez — 12-for-34 (.353) with two walks, two doubles, four homers and 12 RBI.

Players to Consider

  • Victor Martinez ($3,400)
  • Miguel Cabrera ($4,200)
  • J.D. Martinez ($4,300)
  • Justin Upton ($4,100)
  • Ian Kinsler ($3,800)
  • Jose Iglesias ($2,600)

3. TEXAS RANGERS

The Rangers produced five runs at home last night, just as they were projected to do. Tonight they’re projected for 5.6 and in an even better spot against RHP Zach Eflin. Eflin’s having a solid season, so you might be able to get lower ownership on a stack like this given the success of the opposition. However, I trust Texas’ offense at home more than the pitcher in this situation.

Players to Consider

  • Rougned Odor ($4,100)
  • Nomar Mazara ($4,000)
  • Shin-Soo Choo ($4,300)
  • Joey Gallo ($4,400)
  • Jonathan Lucroy ($3,900)
  • Mike Napoli ($3,900)


4. ATLANTA BRAVES

The Braves lit the Jays up for nine runs at home last night and now will face RHP Joe Biagini. Biagini’s had a good season for Toronto at home but has allowed all eight of his runs on the road in 14 innings of work. I’m looking for Atlanta to take care of business in their home ballpark.

Players to Consider

  • Freddie Freeman ($5,200)
  • Matt Kemp ($4,500)
  • Nick Markakis ($3,600)
  • Ender Inciarte ($3,600)
  • Brandon Phillips ($3,300)
  • Dansby Swanson ($3,200)


5. CINCINNATI REDS

The Reds will get the benefit of playing at Wrigley again tonight, and although they’re facing RHP Kyle Hendricks, the wind is simply the more important factor. If you can get a hold of a ball to left field it’s going to be pretty tough to keep it in the ballpark. Joey Votto has smashed Hendricks the 17 times they’ve faced off, resulting in seven hits, six walks and a pair of bombs.

Players to Consider

  • Joey Votto ($4,700)
  • Adam Duvall ($3,900)
  • Zack Cozart ($3,600)
  • Billy Hamilton ($4,400)
  • Eugenio Suarez ($3,600)
  • Scott Schebler ($3,400)
