Another day, another ? ? ?, let’s check out tonight’s 15 game MLB slate.
The Twins have quietly been a really nice stack all season long. Minnesota has a plethora of right-handed killers in their lineup in Sano, Vargas, Kepler, and Rosario was on a 14 game hit streak until a couple days ago. Minnesota kills right handed pitching and they get a treat on Tuesday taking on 33-year old Pelfrey. Almost their entire lineup has excellent BVP against Pelf. Really like a lefty Twins stack for tonight’s divisional match up.
The Stack: Sano, Kepler, Grossman, Rosario, Vargas
Nothing new here. Washington has by far the best offense in baseball, it’s really not close. Most home runs, best batting average, and most runs in the MLB. Harper, Murphy, Zimmerman all hitting .300+ against righties and like the Twins they get a cake walk of a match up against Ubaldo and his 6.58 ERA. All Nats hitters are expensive, but there are some nice cheap pitching options on the slate to help save some salary.
The Stack: Harper, Zimmerman, Murphy
At the beginning of the year Oakland was just the team you would play your pitcher against, but they’ve come alive as of late. The A’s have faired well this year against righties and they have had a lot of success hitting at home. Meyer is by far the worst pitcher on the slate and has looked awful in his two starts so far. Alonso is nearly a must play at his price of $2,900, and there are some other nice cheap options like Lowrie, and Healey. Not touching them for cash, but definitely in play for GPP.
The Stack: Alonso, Lowrie, Davis
On paper this Cincy offense looks really bad, but the Reds have been uber consistent this year, every game they seem to be around 5, 6, 7 runs. Cincinnati hits much better at home and they take it to the next level against lefties. C.C. isn’t the same pitcher he was in his younger years and it has shown the last few years, he comes into tonight’s match up with a 5.68 ERA. I like a mini-Reds righties stack in Great American Ballpark tonight.
The Stack: Cozart, Suarez, Duvall
