TEX (vs. LAA)
The Rangers are lucky enough to catch the debut of RHP Jaime Barria in tonight’s tilt. They also have the benefit of the highest implied total on the main slate. Joey Gallo made an appearance as a Spotlight Hitter, but you shouldn’t stop there. Shin-soo Choo and Nomar Mazara both have the benefit of a LHH/RHP matchup. Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre are plugged into the heart of the order and should have plenty of opportunities with runners on.

As good as the matchup looks for the Rangers, it’s equally advantageous for the Angels. Matt Moore isn’t the same guy from a few years ago, and the Angels are absolutely loaded with high end righty bats. Trout is the cornerstone, clearly, but Zack Cozart, Justin Upton, Albert Pujols, Andrelton Simmons and Jefry Marte are all completely stackable. You can grab whatever works for you and be confident.

Similar to the Angels, the Mets get to run out a wealth of right handed hitting against the Marlins and lefty Jarlin Garcia. Flores is my favorite play on the Mets, but I’ll be stacking him up with Yoenis Cespedes, Todd Frazier and Asdrubal Cabrera. Even LHH Michael Conforto fits in a stack with his spot at the top of the order offsetting some of the issues vs. LHP.
These are the three top stacks in my crunches right now, and I expect them to be popular in tonight’s tournaments. For a contrarian option, I recommend the Reds on DK and the Dodgers on FD.
