3 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 6/27/19
We have a typical Thursday on our hands, with a split of day and night games leaving us with just four on the main slate. That limits our stacking options a bit, though the presence of Coors Field will spice things up as always.
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.
Los Angeles Angels
Anderson has managed a decent enough 4.05 SIERA and 19.1% strikeout rate through three starts, but what really moves the needle are his horrific numbers in Triple-A this year. Across 54.2 innings (including 10 starts), he only managed a 6.05 xFIP with a 14.1% strikeout rate and 10.2% walk rate, and although he performed better at that level in 2018, it was as a relief pitcher.
He does have a track record as a ground-ball pitcher, though, including a high 59.6% ground-ball rate since his promotion, which could theoretically limit home runs. But we shouldn't let that scare us off, as he's also allowing a 46.8% hard-hit rate and has yet to show much strikeout potential at any stage of his career.
The Angels check in with a 4.97 implied total, and after the always great Mike Trout ($4,700), fly-ball hitters like Justin Upton ($3,800), Kole Calhoun ($3,000), and Justin Bour ($2,600) are great ways to counter Anderson's ground-ball tendencies.
Shohei Ohtani ($3,600) and Tommy La Stella ($3,200) are also appealing as lefty sticks batting high in the order, and while Ohtani has a surprisingly high ground-ball rate this year, that wasn't the case in 2018, and he's still making loads of hard contact (48.3%) with plenty of encouraging Statcast marks.
