DFS MLB Stacks: April 14 (Early)
Jonhenry Holt takes a look at the early DFS MLB slate for Saturday and reveals his favorite lineup stacks.
There are a lot of weather concerns today so be cautions about how you approach the slate. NYY/DET looks like it has a good shot of being PPD followed by STL/CIN and finally TOR/CLE. I am going to leave them off the stacks for this reason.
Boston Red Sox
There are not a lot of options because of the weather today, but the Red Sox have been crushing the ball after a bit of a funk to open the year. Alex Cobb takes the hill for Baltimore. You probably best recognize this name as the prospect who has been injured after the first five games every year. Cobb is a decent right handed pitcher, but the Sox are swinging well lately. It seems like most of the ownership will fall on them because of this and the weather making them the cash game play. Rafael Devers is in the 5 hole today behind J.D. Martínez . A middle lineup Red Sox stacks followed by Jackie Bradley Jr. would be a good cash game play here today.
Charlie Morton vs. Mike Minor in this bout. Finally some good Texas weather, so the balls should be flying off right handed bats from a left handed pitcher. You have to go back to 2014 to get a good Mike Minor sample size where he allowed a .389 wOBA to left handed hitters and a .340 to right handed hitters. In short, he’s bad. Real bad. José Altuve , George Springer , Carlos Correa are all in play here.
A good game stack might be in order here at Fenway. We tend to overlook that Baltimore is still loaded with potential 35hr hitters including Jonathan Schoop , Adam Jones , Manny Machado , Chris Davis , Trey Mancini . Baltimore gets a 6k pitcher in Hector Velasquez today. This game could very well hit the over in the first 3 innings, so for a long shot GPP play Baltimore has all the talent to win you a GPP.
