The following Spotlight Stacks were selected by Awesemo.com’s Director of Content Josh Engleman.
BAL (@ CWS)
The Orioles are my clear favorite stack today, as they’re my #1 on DraftKings and #2 on FanDuel. I mentioned Jonathan Schoop in the Spotlight Hitters, so check that out for my thoughts. The first five guys (Trey Mancini, Adam Jones, Manny Machado, Schoop, Mark Trumbo) are the core of my exposure. Even with the LHH/LHP matchup, I see Chris Davis pop up a bit on FanDuel. On DraftKings, I swap the Chris Davis exposure for Andrew Susac. Little bits of Danny Valencia are fine, too.
STL (vs. KC)
For the FanDuel folks, the Cardinals are my #1 stack, although I’ll have them a ton on both sites. On FanDuel, I’m looking 1-7, with the main focus on the first five guys: Pham, Carpenter, Martinez, Ozuna, Gyorko. Kolten Wong’s $2200 price makes him an attractive second base option. Francisco Pena is playable as a catcher on DraftKings, but he’s not someone I’d recommend on FanDuel.
WAS (vs. SD)
This final spot was a tossup between the Nationals and the Twins, but I think the Nats offer a bit more on the high end, specifically in Trea Turner, Anthony Rendon and Mark Reynolds. Obviously, I’ll have a bit of Bryce Harper. I hope his ownership is a bit low due to the LHH/LHP matchup. I won’t get to a lot of Matt Adams, as this is a rough spot for him, but I will likely be over the field on Michael Taylor. If Pedro Severino hits 7th as projected, I like him as a catcher option in a Nationals stack.
