I never thought I would be so excited to stack the Pirates on the road against a young pitcher with a sub-3.00 ERA, but here we are. There are a couple of obvious, higher profile stacks that I will be more than happy to play if I can afford them, but it feels good to have a cheap, under-the-radar stack that I feel so confident in. With that in mind, let’s get right to it. Here are the stacks I am targeting, listed in order of preference:

Pittsburgh Pirates @ Milwaukee Brewers (Junior Guerra, R)

Andrew McCutchen, Josh Harrison, Gregory Polanco, Jose Osuna, David Freese

Did you know, the Pirates have the highest road OBP in baseball over the past 30 days? Andrew McCutchen’s breakout since dropping to sixth in the order has been well-publicized, but his teammates are showing signs of turning things around as well. Gregory Polanco has three multi-hit games in his last four starts. David Freese is 4-for-12 over his last three games. Jose Osuna has a .360 well-hit average against right-handed pitchers over the last 30 days, and he hopefully earned another start with a three-run home run Tuesday. In fact, Osuna is 5-for-13 over his last three starts.

 Perhaps more importantly, Junior Guerra has a 4.83 BB/9 this season. Among pitchers with at least 30 innings pitched this season, only Andrew Cashner, Eddie Butler and Chris Tillman have a lower K/BB rate than Junior Guerra’s 1.24 mark. I think a lot of people have decided Guerra is a good pitcher because he had a 2.81 ERA last season and his 2.84 ERA in six starts this season seems to support that conclusion, but that may not be right. Guerra has a 6.06 FIP in 2017, which is the 12th worst among pitchers with at least 30 innings. This looks like the perfect marriage of a sneaky-good offense against a sneaky-bad starting pitcher. It also doesn’t hurt that Milwaukee’s bullpen has a 4.48 ERA.

New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels (Ricky Nolasco, R)

Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, Matt Holliday, Starlin Castro

Stop me if you have heard this before: The Yankees have the best home OPS in baseball at .883, better than the Rockies and Diamondbacks. They have a .840 OPS against righties, which is also the best mark in baseball. Ricky Nolasco has allowed seven or more hits in five consecutive starts, with five runs or more in three of those starts. Nolasco has a 5.01 ERA and 5.74 FIP this season, and only Bronson Arroyo has allowed more home runs this season.

Any Yankees stack probably has to include Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez, since Judge has the highest home slugging percentage in baseball this season and Gary Sanchez has a .641 slugging percentage against righties in his brief career. Sanchez has been batting sixth when everyone is healthy, which isn’t ideal, but he does have five multi-hit games in his last nine starts.

Cleveland Indians @ Baltimore Orioles (Kevin Gausman, R)

Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Ramirez, Lonnie Chisenhall, Bradley Zimmer, Carlos Santana

The Indians are one of the most interesting stacks of the day because there are so many options. Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Ramirez, Lonnie Chisenhall and Bradley Zimmer are all batting .379 or better over the last seven days. Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana have had more modest success over that span, but  they are still batting first, second and sixth respectively, and they are far more reasonably priced. For his part, Kevin Gausman has a 6.60 ERA and 1.92 WHIP, and he has allowed 26 baserunners and 12 earned runs in 9.0 innings over his last two starts.

Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros (Mike Fiers, R)

Matt Joyce, Yonder Alonso, Jaycob Brugman, Chad Pinder, Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis, Ryon Healy

Fiers is right behind Nolasco with 18 home runs allowed this season, which helps account for his 5.78 FIP. Fiers has allowed twice as many home runs to right-handed batters this season and has had reverse splits for his entire career, so the righties in Oakland’s lineup could be especially sneaky plays. Brugman led off Tuesday while Matt Joyce dealt with back tightness, and whoever leads off Tuesday should be included in an Oakland stack, even if Rajai Davis gets the call.
