4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 7/6/17

With a monster implied team total, the Minnesota Twins hitters look primed to stack. But are they the best option of the day?

Stacking can be a controversial topic in many daily fantasy sports, but you can count baseball as a glaring exception. Here, it's universal.

Using multiple players on the same team on a given day presents you with the opportunity to double dip. If one of your players hits an RBI double, there's a good chance he drove in another one of your guys. When you get the points for both the run and the RBI, you'll be climbing the leaderboards fast.

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 new 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.

For purposes of this article, the games in Coors Field will be ignored.

Now, let's get to the stacks. Here are the teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.

Minnesota Twins

Dylan Bundy picked the wrong time to struggle through his worst stretch of the season, and tonight's contest with the Minnesota Twins certainly doesn't feel like the best one to get back on track.

Over 31 1/3 innings pitched since June 1, Bundy's given up 23 earned runs (6.61 ERA), and the 10 jacks he's allowed have been a big part of that.

Priced up at $3,600, Miguel Sano has been an absolute beast, and he does some of his best work against right-handed pitching -- he's posted a 49.6% hard-hit rate and 43.2% fly-ball rate against righties. That could spell trouble for Bundy, who's allowed 1.63 home runs per nine innings pitched to same-sided bats in 2017.

The best part of a Minnesota stack is that it's an extremely affordable one. A little farther down in the order, but certainly not to be ignored, Eddie Rosario has been a boss at home versus righties to the tune of a 1.009 OPS and .327 ISO. He'll cost only $2,800, and with Bundy allowing a 39.6% hard-hit rate and 49.3% fly-ball rate to lefties, Rosario makes for a strong option.

Rounding out the stack, the big German, Max Kepler, and catcher Jason Castro seem like solid options at $2,700 and $2,600, respectively. Kepler has shown to be far better against righties (134 wRC+) than against lefties (12 wRC+), and Castro has hit 5 homers with a .174 ISO against righties this year.

One player to avoid is Brian Dozier. In 2017, he's hitting only .222 with a .706 OPS against right-handed pitching.
