We have a short five-game slate for tonight, but a good choice of teams to stack. Let’s jump right into all the information, and, as always, you can get me on the ol’ Twitter machine @SBuchanan24.

1. Colorado Rockies

Adam Wainwright takes the hill for the Cardinals tonight at Coors Field. His road numbers have been, well, less than stellar. In 19 innings on the road, Wainwright has posted a .423 wOBA with a .556 SLG and a .438 OBP. His control has been wildly erratic as well, owning a 16:13 K: BB ratio over his last four starts. The Rockies should have no issues jumping on Wainwright tonight, making them my favorite stack on this five-game slate.

Players to Consider

  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,600)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,500)
  • Nolan Arenado ($5,400)
  • Carlos González ($4,900)
  • Mark Reynolds ($5,000)


2. Houston Astros

After a stellar first start to the season, averaging 24.6 FPPG over his first four starts, Miley has been reduced to 10.5 FPPG in his last three. Miley has posted a .335 wOBA on the road with a .429 SLG and a .339 OBP. Miley has also allowed almost all of his home runs on the road (five of six). The Astros are hitting well at home this season, sporting a .331 wOBA with a .454 SLG.

  • George Springer ($4,200)
  • Jose Altuve ($5,000)
  • Marwin Gonzalez ($3,800)
  • Evan Gattis ($3,600)
  • Carlos Beltran ($3,300)


3. Atlanta Braves

USATSI_10067379_168381090_lowres

Playing at AT&T Park isn’t an ideal spot for the Braves, but they’re one of the best hitting clubs against lefties. Coming into this game, the Braves own a .341 wOBA with a .341 OBP and a.456 SLG. Ty Blach isn’t a big strikeout pitcher by any means and has allowed a 35% hard hit rate to opposing hitters over his last three starts. The Braves may not be the most productive stack on this slate, but they could go overlooked.

Players to Consider

  • Ender Inciarte ($4,200)
  • Matt Kemp ($4,300)
  • Nick Markakis ($3,400)
  • Tyler Flowers ($3,300)
  • Brandon Phillips ($4,200)


4. L.A. Dodgers

John Lackey has been wildly inconsistent this season, with his best start this year coming at Coors Field of all places. Even with that start in the mix, Lackey has allowed a 42% hard hit contact to opposing hitters over his last three starts with a batted ball distance of 233 ft. Overall, Lackey has been his best on the road, and Dodger Stadium will certainly help him out in that aspect. Lackey has allowed just a .297 wOBA on the road, but hitters own a total .357 wOBA against him. The Dodgers are one of the best hitting clubs at home, posting a .344 wOBA with a .346 OBP and a .455 SLG.

Players to Consider

  • Logan Forsythe ($3,700)
  • Corey Seager ($4,400)
  • Yasmani Grandal ($3,900)
  • Adrian Gonzalez ($3,200)
  • Cody Bellinger ($4,400)


5. St. Louis Cardinals

The Cardinals are struggling at the plate, even playing at Coors Field. They were shut out last night and only able to muster five hits on the night. Overall, the Cardinals own a .313 wOBA on the road with a .320 OBP and a .404 SLG. Tonight they’ll take on Kyle Freeland, who has pitched well at Coors with a .285 wOBA and .333 SLG. Out of respect to Coors Field though, they’ve made this list.

  • Dexter Fowler ($4,800)
  • Stephen Piscotty ($4,500)
  • Matt Carpenter ($4,800)
  • Jedd Gyorko ($4,700)
  • Yadier Molina ($4,000)
