4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 6/4/19
Coors Field may not be on the menu, but we still have nine teams showing implied totals of at least five runs on Tuesday's packed slate. That makes it difficult to narrow down our favorite stacks, though as always, there are a few that stick out.
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.
Boston Red Sox
In terms of weather, the Boston Red Sox hit the jackpot in Kansas City, with temperatures in the 80s, high humidity, and even 11 mph winds blowing out to left-center field. Throw in a mediocre right-hander in Glenn Sparkman, and we have ourselves a hefty 5.64 implied total for the visiting Sox.
Sparkman has compiled a pedestrian 4.83 SIERA and 14.9% strikeout rate across 25.2 innings, most of which has come out of the bullpen, and he wasn't much better in 2018, posting marks of 4.67 and 15.3% over 38.1 innings. Although he did a good job of keeping the ball in the park last season, his ground-ball rate has plummeted to 37.2% in 2019, and between that and the low punchout rate, that sets up Boston well to knock a few out of the park in these ideal hitting conditions.
As always, everyone in the top half of the lineup is capable of racking up the fantasy points, but American League Player of the Month Rafael Devers ($3,700) in particular has really impressed lately, posting a massive .433 xwOBA in the month of May. He also produced an average exit velocity of 97.6 mph on line drives and fly balls over that span.
Jackie Bradley ($2,700) is another lefty stick worth noting, as a recent swing adjustment has greatly improved his production over the past week or so. Since making the change on May 25, he's put up a .381 xwOBA and dropped his strikeout rate to just 15.4%. While it remains to be seen how he'll do over the long haul, he's gone through strong stretches in the past and does hold a solid career .183 ISO versus right-handed pitching.
