4 Daily Fantasy Baseball Stacks for 9/10/19
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.

Los Angeles Dodgers
Outside of the Coors Field game, which we're going to ignore for the purposes of this piece (you already know to get exposure to Coors), the Los Angeles Dodgers have the highest implied run total at 6.23. They'll take on Baltimore Orioles' left-hander Ty Blach -- a pitcher with very little success in the Majors.
In his career, Blach has managed a 5.08 SIERA, a horrendous 12.6 percent strikeout rate, which is strikingly close to his 7.6 percent walk rate. In addition, he's given up 34.3 percent hard-hit rate, a mark which has gotten worse in each of his four seasons. His line-drive rate (21.7 percent), ground-ball rate (48.9 percent) and fly-ball rate (29.5) are not great, but they don't particularly stand out as awful, either.
The biggest hurdle Blach has tonight is facing the incredible offensive firepower of the Dodgers, and while they are better against right-handed pitchers, there are still plenty of hitters who crush lefties to make this stack an elite play.
Let's start off with one of the best hitters in baseball and a guy who crushes the lefty-lefty matchup in Cody Bellinger ($4,600). He has a ridiculous .404 wOBA and .329 ISO in this split -- a split that many DFS players try to avoid. Bellinger's Statcast numbers are elite, as well, as he has put up a rate of 9.2 percent barrels per plate appearance (22nd), 91.0 MPH average exit velocity (54th) and a 209-foot average batted-ball distance (16th) -- all of which are against both lefties and righties combined.
After the beast, we get into a long list of right-handed hitters in A.J. Pollock ($3,800), Justin Turner ($3,600), Will Smith ($3,000), Chris Taylor ($2,800) and David Freese ($2,700). I want to specifically mention Turner, who has been a monster with a .384 wOBA and .297 ISO against lefties -- along with Taylor, who has been similarly powerful in this same split with a .362 wOBA and .280 ISO. With Freese, you just need to know that he is likely to get pinch-hit for against right-handed pitching later in the game.
