WATCH: STACK TO CONSIDER TORONTO BLUE JAYS


Even with a five-game slate last night, it turned out to be a strong evening for stacks, highlighted by 17 runs from the Blue Jays. With close to everyone in action tonight, there are plenty of stacks to chose from on tonight’s 14-game slate. Here are my top-5.

1. TORONTO BLUE JAYS

It’s difficult not to stick with the Jays as my top stack a day after dropping 17 runs, now facing off against no-name RHP Asher Wojciechowski. This guy’s only pitched four innings in two appearances this season, his only appearances since 2015. We’ll just call him “Woj Bomb,” as that year he allowed 13 runs in just 16 innings. It’d be shocking to see him not struggle his was through this fully loaded Blue Jays’ lineup. Everyone in the lineup is in play right now.

Players to Consider

  • Jose Bautista ($5,000)
  • Josh Donaldson ($4,600)
  • Troy Tulowitzki ($3,900)
  • Russell Martin ($3,200)
  • Devon Travis ($3,800)
  • Kendrys Morales ($3,900)/Justin Smoak ($3,800)


2. COLORADO ROCKIES

The Rockies host the Mariners at Coors Field, where they’ll face LHP Ariel Miranda. Miranda has crumbled on the road this season, where his ERA jumps nearly two full points to 6.08. It’s pretty clear who you want to target here, as RHB have hit nine of the 10 HR allowed by Miranda this season.

Players to Consider

  • Nolan Arenado ($5,400)
  • Mark Reynolds ($4,900)
  • Ian Desmond ($4,600)
  • Trevor Story ($4,500)
  • DJ LeMahieu ($4,400)
  • Charlie Blackmon ($5,500)

3. SEATTLE MARINERS

In the opposite dugout at Coors, we have the Mariners, who have a tougher matchup against LHP Tyler Anderson. Anderson has a 5.40 ERA this season, but has settled in nicely since April, and has close to even splits on the road vs. Coors. Despite all the upside, he’s also getting hit for close to .300 by RHB, to go with nine of the 12 dingers he’s given up on the season (not to mention 14 doubles). Seattle can make something happen here, starting on the right side of the plate.

Players to Consider

  • Nelson Cruz ($5,100)
  • Jean Segura ($4,800)
  • Guillermo Heredia ($3,500)
  • Danny Valencia ($3,600)
  • Taylor Motter ($3,500)
  • Robinson Cano ($5,100)


4. TAMPA BAY RAYS

The Rays were a sneaky good stack yesterday, going off for 10 runs in Texas. Projected for more than five runs this time around against RHP Nick Martinez, they’re in another good spot. Martinez has a 4.69 ERA and gets hit pretty evenly from both sides of the dish.

Players to Consider

  • Corey Dickerson ($4,800)
  • Colby Rasmus ($3,800)
  • Kevin Kiermaier ($4,000)
  • Logan Morrison ($4,500)
  • Evan Longoria ($4,000)
  • Steven Souza ($4,500)


5. NEW YORK METS

The Mets have been crushing RHP lately, and tonight they will host Zach Davies and the Brew Crew. Davies has struggled this season with a 5.33 ERA, getting pushed around for four runs in five innings in his lone start against the Mets. I’m looking for New York’s LHBs to produce here.

Players to Consider

  • Michael Conforto ($5,300)
  • Jay Bruce ($4,600)
  • Neil Walker ($4,100)
  • Lucas Duda ($4,000)
  • Asdrubal Cabrera ($3,600)
  • Curtis Granderson ($3,400)
