You are viewing a daily MLB post featuring two lineups from our optimizer. An optimal 4-man stack has been included in each, and the optimizer was ran as is. Alongside the lineups, I will list some general info about the matchups and thought process of what was optimized. Feel free to comment or fire away with questions and be sure to check out our daily MLB content on the site.
FanDuel Lineup With Stack
No surprise to see the LO go after Luis Severino who is a few thousand cheaper than Max Scherzer. He allows you to fit in a few of the extra bats. Milwaukee is one of the higher totals on the slate, and back at home in that friendly ballpark I am on board with the stack. Eric Thames and Hernan Perez are way too cheap here. Travis Shaw and Domingo Santana both have strong numbers against right-handers, especially in the power department. Jay Bruce is only $2,300 and in a GPP spot against Max Scherzer who can allow the long ball to left-handers. It's not the worst GPP move you can make.
DraftKings Lineup With Stack
With all the top pitchers packed closely in price up top, no surprise to see the LO just roll with Max Scherzer. I talked about Sean Manaea in the Pitcher Pulse, and surprisingly he popped up with the GPP projections. I am sold there, given the Yankees are middle of the road against left-handers and are bottom ten in K%. The Seattle stack is an interesting one, due to Tyson Ross being back in his first game in about two years. We could see a short rusty outing, and then a very bad bullpen come in. It is also very hot in Texas, which helps the ball travel. I like the Seattle stack here, mixed in with some solid one-offs.
