What’s up guys! We got a 9 game slate on our hands on Monday so let’s check out some of the stacks to target for May 22nd.
Kyle Gibson has been a starter for the Twins since 2013 and has stayed in the Majors all throughout…..except this last week when he was sent down to AAA as a 29 year old. After a very rare veteran send down, Gibson comes into Monday with an 8.20 ERA and a 1.97 WHIP in 2017. Gibson’s splits have been basically the same, he’s giving up .340 BA to both righties and lefties, so keep it simple tonight and stack BAL, it should be a slugfest in Camden Yards this evening.
The Stack: Davis, Schoop, Hardy, Trumbo, Machado
Vegas loves this game for runs, as the O/U comes in at 10, which is the highest on the slate(I’d take the over too) No surprise here as we have two premier gas cans in this one, of course Gibson was sent down last week and Ubaldo comes into tonight’s match up with a 6.52 ERA. Jimenez has really struggled at Camden and he’s really been bad at getting lefties out as 8 of the 10 home runs he’s given up have come from lefty bats. Minnesota’s lineup is predominately left-handed and Jimenez is giving up .390 OBP to lefties in 2017, so check out a Minnesota lefty stack for cash games tonight.
The Stack: Mauer, Kepler, Grossman, Rosario
Cincinnati has been one of the best hitting ball clubs at home this year, as they have the 3rd best average in the N.L. @ home behind WAS & ARI(which is nothing to be ashamed of) Votto, Cozart, Suarez, and Gennett are all batting .300+ at home this year and they get a treat tonight as Tomlin and his 6.86 ERA take the bump tonight. Tomlin has been getting lit up this year by really terrible offenses(CWS, SEA, TB) he’s really only had one quality start which was against MIN. Tomlin’s has reverse splits, as he really struggles against right-handed bats, so check out Cozart, Suarez, Duvall tonight in Great American Ballpark.
The Stack: Cozart, Suarez, Hamilton, Duvall
Pretty chalky here, but the Cubs offense has been on fire after finishing off the Brewers series with a 13 run performance. Vegas has upped the line to an O/U of 10 runs, which ties MIN-BAL at the highest on the slate(Cubs also favored -185) Ty Blach started off as a reliever for SF, but has come into the rotation to fill in for the fallen MadBum. He’s actually been pretty decent, but it was against some terrible offenses in the Padres and Dodgers lefties, and he did implode against the Reds, giving up 11 runs in just three innings. Like a lot of Giant’s arms, he is a lot better at home than on the road(1.59 ERA at AT & T park and 15.63 in road ballparks) With the wind blowing out, good to get some Cubs righties in your lineup tonight at Wrigley.
The Stack: Bryant, Schwarber, Russell, Baez
