4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 7/15/19
With a day-night doubleheader forcing the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants to look to some Triple-A call-ups to start tonight's night cap, we should definitely expect some offensive fireworks at Coors Field. Those squads will be tough to fade even at higher ownership, though like always, we should be open to plenty of other stacks, particularly when making multiple lineups in tournaments.
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. As usual, we will not include today's game at Coors Field in these recommendations. You already know that you want bats at Coors when you can afford them, and you don't need us to tell you. Here are the other teams you should be targeting in daily fantasy baseball today.
Norris has endured poor results dating back to 2017, and any improved peripherals he showed in 2018 have quickly evaporated this year. A 4.71 SIERA and 18.1% strikeout rate aren't scaring anyone, and nor are his poor batted-ball Statcast numbers on Baseball Savant.
Against right-handed batters, he's allowed a hard-hit rate of 40% or more in three straight seasons, so switch-hitter Francisco Lindor ($4,000) should shine, along with value bats like Oscar Mercado ($2,700), Jordan Luplow ($2,500), and Roberto Perez ($2,700). Luplow has been crushing lefties this season to an unsustainable degree, but a 42.1% hard-hit rate and 42.1% fly-ball rate in the split is well worth investing in.
Carlos Santana ($3,800) and Jose Ramirez ($3,400) have historically shown less power against southpaws, be we needn't ignore them when we can feast on the Detroit Tigers' bullpen, too. Detroit's' relievers own the eighth-worst xFIP among active rosters (4.63) and have allowed the fourth-most home runs per nine innings (1.56).
