WATCH: IMPACT PLAYER JAKE LAMB


We have a small, five-game slate tonight along with some rainy weather in the Northeast. There are still some decent stacks here, but a couple of them could be threatened by weather in Boston and New York, so make sure you keep an eye out. With that said, my top-three stacks are below.

1. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS

My top stacks today actually aren’t in order of my personal preference, but they’re in order of how safe they are due to the weather concerns. The D-Backs are in Milwaukee — where all is safe at Miller Park — and will face RHP Zach Davies, who has a 5.44 ERA that actually rises to 6.93 at home. RHB clobber Davies for a .371 average, while both sides of the dish get him about evenly for home runs.

Players to Consider

  • Paul Goldschmidt ($5,500)
  • Yasmany Tomas ($4,100)
  • Jake Lamb ($5,300)
  • David Peralta ($4,400)
  • Chris Owings ($4,300)
  • Brandon Drury ($3,600)


2. BOSTON RED SOX

If this game’s played, then it’s going to be in some misty weather. Assuming the show goes on, I still like the red-hot Sox bats more than the other lineups on this slate no matter the conditions. RHP Nick Martinez has a 5.24 ERA in May and a 5.51 ERA on the road this season. Hanley Ramirez has tagged him for two doubles and two homers, along with three walks, in just nine at-bats. Seems like a good place to start.

Players to Consider

  • Hanley Ramirez ($4,500)
  • Mookie Betts ($4,900)
  • Xander Bogaerts ($4,800)
  • Andrew Benintendi ($4,600)
  • Dustin Pedroia ($4,200)
  • Mitch Moreland ($4,300)


3. NEW YORK METS

The Mets have some serious weather concerns, but I really like the spot they’re in tonight. If they play, you could get an awesome stack at lower ownership because of the rain. RHP Dinelson Lamet, who struggled against LHB in the minors, is making his MLB debut for the Padres. The clear place to start your stack is with Michael Conforto, then hope the rest of the offense behind him follows suit. If Jay Bruce returns, he’d be in a great spot too, although I didn’t include him below.

Players to Consider

  • Michael Conforto ($5,100)
  • Neil Walker ($3,400)
  • Curtis Granderson ($3,600)
  • Lucas Duda ($3,600)
  • Wilmer Flores ($3,300)
  • Jose Reyes ($3,900)
