This Wednesday is getaway day for a handful of MLB teams, so we’ll have baseball action going on all day, starting at 1:10 ET between the Twins and the Indians. Marquee pitchers such as Jacob deGrom, Clayton Kershaw, Tyler Glasnow and Zack Greinke will be working today. Obviously, creating a DFS stack against any of those guys is not advisable.
Sometimes with a plus-matchup on the MLB game slate, we get an opportunity to slot multiple players from the same team into our DFS lineups. You can learn more about MLB DFS strategy, including team stacks, here.
Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on April 28. Head over to DraftKings to set your lineups.
Braves vs. Cubs, 7:20 p.m. ET
Ronald Acuna Jr. ($6,000)
Freddie Freeman ($5,500)
Marcell Ozuna ($5,100)
Dansby Swanson ($3,500)
The Braves ambushed Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks for four first-inning home runs back on April 18. What does Atlanta have in store for Hendricks as an encore today? A bunch of Braves are still underachieving, but Swanson may be heating up as he has five hits over his last two games. And Acuna Jr. looked fully recovered from his recent ab strain when he launched a 481-foot homer on Tuesday night.
White Sox vs. Tigers, 8:10 p.m. ET
Jose Abreu ($5,600)
Tim Anderson ($5,500)
Yoan Moncada ($5,200)
Adam Eaton ($4,300)
Tigers rookie pitcher Casey Mize is going to be a really good starter in time. That time is not right now. Opponents have posted a .947 slugging percentage off of his fastball this season. If you don’t want to pay up for Abreu, Yermin Mercedes ($5,000) and his league-leading .432 average is definitely worth consideration.
Orioles vs. Yankees, 7:05 p.m. ET
Trey Mancini ($4,500)
Cedric Mullins ($4,100)
Maikel Franco ($3,800)
Austin Hays ($2,800)
You could certainly put together a Yankees stack tonight (the Orioles’ starter is TBD as of 11 a.m. ET). But if you want a more affordable stack, look into the opposite dugout. Yankees pitcher Domingo German has been getting hit hard often and has already given up four homers in 13 innings. Mullins’ 32 hits are tied for the MLB lead, and he has 10 hits in his last 23 at-bats, including a couple of home runs. Hays owns a .611 slugging percentage over his last five games.
