4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 6/19/19
There are plenty of attractive spots to stack on Wednesday's 10-game main slate, with another hot evening in Texas that should get a fair amount of attention.
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.

Now, let's get to the stacks.
Palumbo's lone MLB start came earlier this month against Oakland, and it went about as well as one might expect for a guy with zero prior experience above Double-A, as he lasted just four innings while allowing four runs, six hits, and one homer.
Although he's shown some strikeout potential in Double-A with a 30.8% strikeout rate this season, his 11.2% walk rate is much less encouraging and a low ground-ball rate (40.8%) could also lead to some potential home run issues. Given his lack of experience, it isn't surprising to see public projection systems on FanGraphs peg him for an ERA around 5.00 or worse in the big leagues.
As for Cleveland, switch-hitting leadoff man Francisco Lindor ($4,100) is the top dog in the lineup as usual -- dating back to 2017, he owns a .224 ISO, 41.5% hard-hit rate, and 37.6% fly-ball rate against southpaws.
He'll likely be followed by other switch-hitters/righties in Oscar Mercado ($3,500), Carlos Santana ($3,900), Jordan Luplow ($3,000), and Jose Ramirez ($3,100), who are all fair game in this spot. Santana has typically hit for less power against lefties but has an encouraging .360 xwOBA in the split this season. And while we may not have a huge sample for Luplow against left-handers this year (75 plate appearances), his strong results against them are backed by a 43.5% hard-hit rate and 39.1% fly-ball rate.
