3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 4/11/19

With the Diamondbacks facing an inexperienced pitcher on Thursday, could they rack up some runs against the Padres?

At just five games, tonight's main slate is one of those times where there aren't really any must-have spots, and you can find holes in just about every pitcher or offense. But you know it's more than likely some team goes off, and there are a few matchups that may fit the bill this evening.

Each day here on numberFire, we'll go through 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.

Arizona Diamondbacks

Pedro Avila will be making his MLB debut for the Padres. He's arguably the biggest wild card on this slate but one who might be worth stacking against.

At just 22 years old, Avila spent all of last year in High-A and made his first start in Double-A just this year, the highest level at which he's ever pitched. And while you would maybe think tonight's debut means he tore is up at the lower level last year, he actually produced only a 4.27 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 130 2/3 innings with a 4.13 xFIP.

Relative unknowns like Avila can sometimes produce better than expected results when they first make the jump, but his lack of experience could prove to be his downfall, even against a middle-of-the-road team like the Arizona Diamondbacks.

They're a fairly affordable stack, too, with every player priced below $4,000, and cheap options like Jarrod Dyson ($2,700) and Wilmer Flores ($2,200) batting first and second.

David Peralta ($3,700) is coming off easily the best season of his career and is off to a promising start with a 45.7% hard-hit rate and .399 wOBA, while Adam Jones ($3,800) has shown reverse splits for most of his career, owning a solid 111 wRC+ against right-handed pitching. Eduardo Escobar ($2,700) has posted an ISO over .200 versus righties in each of the past two seasons.
