4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 5/30/19
With Coors Field off the main slate, we get a more traditional set of stacks to choose from tonight, and as of this writing, only two teams have implied totals above five runs. Despite the lack of enormous totals that we've seen this week, there are still some enticing spots out there, including a warm evening at Globe Life Park for the Texas Rangers.
Each day here on numberFire, we'll go through four offenses ripe for the stacking. They could have a great matchup, be in a great park, or just have a lot of quality sticks in the lineup, but these are the offenses primed for big days that you may want a piece of.
Premium members can use our stacking feature to customize their stacks within their optimal lineups for the day, choosing the team you want to stack and how many players you want to include. You can also check out our hitting heat map, which provides an illustration of which offenses have the best combination of matchup and potency.
Now, let's get to the stacks.
No, it's not a true scorcher in Arlington, but with temperatures in the 80s, this is still easily the hottest game of the night, and with homer-prone Jake Junis in town, we have to like the Rangers' chances of knocking a few out with a slate-high 5.44 implied total.
Compared to 2018, Junis is posting worse marks in numerous categories this season, including SIERA (4.67), strikeout rate (19.9%), and walk rate (8.5%), all while still allowing a ton of hard contact (42.2%). He's surrendering 1.47 dingers per nine innings, which is nothing new for Junis, who has a career mark of 1.52. His Statcast page on Baseball Savant views like a sea of blue, with all his expected statistics falling in line with his poor results.
Joey Gallo ($4,300) should be back in the lineup after getting a night off on Wednesday due to a minor wrist issue, and you'll certainly want him in your stacks as he continues to crush it on the Statcast leaderboards.
Gallo leads the league with a ridiculous 58.2% hard-hit rate, but plenty of his teammates are mashing, too, with Shin-Soo Choo ($3,800) and a resurgent Hunter Pence ($4,100) both exceeding 50% hard-hit rates, as well. We can also find value in the bottom half of the order between Asdrubal Cabrera ($2,800), Rougned Odor ($2,700), and Ronald Guzman ($3,000), all of whom offer solid power against right-handed pitching.
