We have 15 games in MLB on Saturday, which means there are endless opportunities for your prospective lineup in DFS. The main slate features six games starting around 7:05 p.m. ET. And there’s also five early games beginning at 1:10 p.m. ET, with the Miami Marlins taking on the New York Mets.

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 10th.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees, 1:10 p.m. ET

DJ LeMahieu ($5200)
Aaron Judge ($5100)
Gary Sanchez ($4800)
Gleyber Torres ($4700)
Gio Urshela ($4300)

The New York Yankees will be looking to get revenge on the Tampa Bay Rays after an ugly 10-5 loss on Friday afternoon. The Yankees will be going up against Chris Archer, who struggled in his first start back with the Rays. Archer gave up four hits, three earned runs, a walk, and only recorded strikeouts in 2.0 IP against the Miami Marlins.

Judge will be back in the lineup for the Yankees on Saturday after not playing in the last two games to side soreness. This season, Judge is hitting .364 with two home runs and five RBI (11.2 fantasy points per game). LeMahieu is another player to keep an eye on in this matinee contest. The All-Star second baseman has registered a hit in six consecutive games, including a 21.0 fantasy point performance on Friday.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Los Angeles Angels, 7:05 p.m. ET

Mike Trout ($5900)
Anthony Rendon ($4800)
Shohei Ohtani ($4600)
Jared Walsh ($4400)
Max Stassi ($3200)

We are harped on this game for Friday’s slate, but our stack revolved around the Blue Jays, which netted us 27 fantasy points. However, for Saturday’s slate, we are going to stack the Angels, who have been raking through the first two games in this series. Los Angeles has outscored Toronto 14-6 and has received contributions from Ohtani and Trout.

Ohtani went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBI on Friday, while Trout went 2-4 with a walk and run scored. It’s a no brainer to have Trout leading off your stack, one of the best players in the game. But there are also tremendous value plays in Walsh and Stassi. The Angels will try continue their offensive outburst against Steven Matz, who had a great first outing for the Blue Jays. In his first start, Matz struck out six and only gave up two hits and a walk in 6.1 IP against the Texas Rangers.

San Diego Padres vs. Texas Rangers, 7:05 p.m. ET

Isiah Kiner-Falefa ($4100)
Nate Lowe ($3900)
Nick Solak ($3800)
Joey Gallo ($3700)
David Dahl ($2900)

This is another game that we featured in our MLB DFS for Friday, we focused on the Padres’ offense who only mustered three runs against the Rangers. But that was all they would need as Joe Musgrove went the distance and threw the first no-hitter in San Diego Padres history. The Rangers will be looking to get their offense back on track Saturday night against Chris Paddack.

In his first start of the season, Paddack allowed four hits, three walks, two earned runs, and only struck out three in 4.0 IP. The Rangers will try to make it another short outing as they have two solid left-handed batters that could make it hard for Paddack in Lowe and Gallo. Left-handed batters have fared better against Paddack, slashing .228/.280/.440 with 20 home runs and 91 hits. Lowe has been one of the better hitters in the MLB, despite going 0-for-7 in the Rangers’ last two games.
