As always, things can change based on lineups and weather, so do stay up to date using the Playbook Pro tools. Below are my favorite stack options for the day. 

Stacks for Saturday, June 24

Early Slate

Washington with Oakland

The Nationals lead the NL is multiple offensive categories including OPS, XBH’s, HR’s, and RBI’s. They face Homer Bailey today, making his first start of the season after his third surgery in three years. He claims to be feeling good, but only saw 16 ? innings during his fehad in the minors. The Yankees, Cubs, and Indians I feel will be the main targets for the early slate, which will leave the Nats overlooked today. I’m hoping Lind receives the start over Zimmerman today, as well as double dong Goodwin remaining in the two hole. With the stacked middle IF cheaper options, Murphy and Turner also make for nice targets as well as of course Harper.

I mentioned yesterday to hold off on Pelfrey, and target the A’s today vs Shields. The projected run total in this game keeps climbing, and now both teams sit at over five runs. James Shields has thrown his fastball for a strike just 52.1% (76/146) of the time this season (Rank: 200th of 203 qualified SPs in MLB), while opponents have a Well-Hit Avg of .259 (15/58) against Shields on non-fastballs this season (Rank: 178th of 179 qualified SPs in MLB; League Avg: .136). Jed, Khris, Joyce, Phegley, Rosales,and Alonso have all taken Shields deep in the past, and the weather conditions I feel are in a position where the line drives will carry a bit more today. Feel free to fully stack this game if you’d like as well.

Washington: Daniel Murphy, Brian Goodwin, Adam Lind (If starting), Trea Turner, Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon

Oakland: Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis, Josh Phegley (if starting), Matt Joyce, Ryon Healy, any cheap OF bat batting behind Joyce in 2 hole.

Honorable Mentions

Cleveland and Tampa Bay

While the Rays came through yesterday with 15 runs, the Indians were blanked last night from the Twins. I like the pairing of the hot offense in Tampa vs a Baltimore team giving up five plus runs every game, paired with a first place Indians team that was shutout last game, and now faces Gibson, who is 0-2 with a 4.76 era vs Cleveland this season, and 6.07 era lifetime against. Edwin went deep vs Gibson twice back on June 18, and Ramirez should be back in the lineup tonight for them. The Rays are still priced cheap, and minimum price Peterson should recieve another start after a big game yesterday.

Cleveland: Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Ramirez, Lonnie Chisenhall, Yan Gomes

Tampa Bay: Mallex Smith, Shane Peterson, Tim Beckham, Corey Dickerson

Late Slate

Arizona paired with San Diego

Similar to the Indians, going back to the well with the D-Backs tonight. They faced Lively last week, who pitched well after a rough first inning. Both Goldschmidt and Owings took him deep in that game. Saw a similar situation earlier in the week with Arizona doing nothing in game one at Coors, then blasting off for 26 runs over the next two games.

To fit in one of the many top pitchers tonight, you’ll need to save some salary, and feel like the Padres are your best bet. They are favored tonight vs Sanchez and the Tigers. Sanchez returned to the rotation from a bullpen role, and struggled with three walks and a hit batter in just five innings. The Padres offense isn’t dangerous by any means, but it gives you a better matchup than going after hitters facing a top pitcher. They also have a projected starting lineup that features just two players at over $2.6K on FanDuel, and only one player over $3.6K on Draftkings.

Arizona: Chris Owings, Brandon Drury, Daniel Descalso or Ahmed if starting,

San Diego: Hunter Renfroe, Austin Hedges, Allen Cordoba, any minimum price bat to save salary.
