Monday’s main MLB slate on DraftKings will be a small one. There are only seven games in total on the docket for the first day of the week, and six will be a part of the main slate.
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 DATE.
Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels, 9:30 p.m. ET
Mike Trout ($6,000)
Jared Walsh ($5,100)
Shohei Ohtani ($4,600)
Kohei Arihara ($5,700) is the cheapest starter on the slate for a reason, and going up against an Angels team with the third-best batting average (.265) in MLB will be a test. Trout, Walsh, and Ohtani are all batting .333 or better and have combined for 48 hits, 35 RBIs, and eight home runs.
Arihara is a 28-year-old rookie who is about to face arguably the best batter in baseball. It’s unlikely that Arihara will go the distance, and Los Angeles has consistently put the ball in play.
Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Seattle Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET
Corey Seager ($5,700)
Justin Turner ($5,500)
Max Muncy ($5,000)
San Diego Padres SP Blake Snell held things together against the Dodgers on Sunday, and Los Angeles only managed to get three hits in a 5-2 loss. That doesn’t often happen to one of the best lineups in baseball, so we’re returning to them against a pitcher who struggled in his 2021 debut.
Seattle is starting Justus Sheffield ($6,100). The 24-year-old lefty gave up eight hits, and four earned runs to the Chicago White Sox in his lone start of the season and will now face MLB’s second-highest scoring offense. Sheffield is allowing a BABIP above .310 for his last two seasons, so Los Angeles should have a good chance to rack up runs with decent contact. Seager, Turner, and Muncy are all batting better than .300 and could be very effective against the southpaw.
