DFS MLB Stacks: September 23
Tom Vecchio pores over all of the statistics, splits, and matchups to uncover the very best DFS MLB Stacks for today's contests.
New York Yankees
The Yankees clinched a playoff spot last night, but they have not yet locked up home-field advantage, so they still have something to play for. They are facing off against Alex Cobb , who is making his first start after a quick DL stint, so we don’t know if he will be on any type of pitch limit today. He comes in giving up a .330 wOBA to lefties and a .359 wOBA to righties, with 1.15 HR/9 to lefties and 1.70 HR/9 to righties. The Yankees come in with the highest implied team total of the day set at 5.86, so we are expecting runs in this favorable hitter’s park. Aaron Judge .292 ISO. Luke Voit .288 ISO. Didi Gregorius .240. Miguel Andujar .221 ISO. Giancarlo Stanton .202 ISO.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are up against Daniel Norris , who is giving up a .334 wOBA to lefties and a .329 wOBA to righties. He is also giving up 1.67 HR/9 to righties, which is where you want to load up on some hitters. This is a positive park shift for the Royals since they are away from home and now in Detroit. The Royals bats aren’t too expensive, so you should be able to fit them into your lineup with relative ease. Salvador Pérez .190 ISO. Ryan O’Hearn .182 ISO. Raul Mondesi .177 ISO. Whit Merrifield .168 ISO.
The Astros are up against Tyler Skaggs , who has given up 17 earned runs in last 9.2 innings pitched. Those are some seriously bad numbers and if a pitcher isn’t on form right now, you want to be stacking against him while you can. The Astros come in with an implied total set at 4.89, which is third highest on the slate, so we should be in for some runs today. They are on the more expensive end of options today, but with the savings some of the pitchers bring, or a stack like the Royals, you should be able to play them in a solid lineup. Tyler White .288 ISO. Alex Bregman .273 ISO. Evan Gattis .253 ISO. Josh Reddick .244 ISO. George Springer .178 ISO.
