We have 15 games on deck Tuesday in the majors, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 13 games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET, while there are two other games beginning at 6:10 p.m. ET and 6:35 p.m. ET.

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 27th.

Yankees vs. Orioles, 7:05 p.m. ET

Aaron Judge ($5600)
DJ LeMahieu ($5200)
Giancarlo Stanton ($4700)
Gleyber Torres ($4200)
Gio Urshela ($3100)

In one of the first games to open up the main slate, we have the New York Yankees taking on the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards at 7:05 p.m. ET. New York is looking to snap their two-game losing skid after a 4-2 defeat on Monday night. The Yanks will start Corey Kluber, while the O’s will put Bruce Zimmermann on the mound. DraftKings Sportsbook expects there to be a lot offense in this game, with the run total currently set at 9.5.

The Yankees’ offense has struggled to produce runs on a consistent basis, only averaging 3.5 runs per game this season. They will be facing a pitcher in Zimmermann, who is 1-2, and has an ERA of 4.57. However, left-handed batters have found success this season, slugging .318/.318/.455. But right-handed hitters have hit three home runs and slashed .271/.343/.508 through four starts.

Mets vs. Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET

Pete Alonso ($5300)
Francisco Lindor ($4800)
Michael Conforto ($3900)
James McCann ($3700)
J.D. Davis ($3600)

After taking two out three games from the Nationals over the weekend, the New York Mets will open up a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. The Mets will start rookie David Peterson, who will be opposed by Garrett Richards for the Red Sox. This is not a great pitching matchup on paper as both players have ERAs over 6.00.

Usually, when we have the Red Sox offense matched up against a pitcher with a high ERA, its an automatic DFS stack. But not this time as the Mets may be the better and cheaper option against Richards. This season, the 32-year-old has a record of 0-2 and an ERA of 6.48 through four starts. Richards has only struck out 12 batters in 16.2 IP, while allowing 13 walks and 12 earned runs. It looks like a great spot for the Mets’ offense, which is averaging 3.29 runs per game this season, to get on track.

Angels vs. Rangers, 8:05 p.m. ET

Mike Trout ($6300)
Jared Walsh ($4100)
Justin Upton ($3500)
David Fletcher ($3100)
Jose Iglesias ($3000)

For our third stack, we are going to focus on the Los Angeles Angels, who scored nine runs in their win over the Rangers on Monday night. The Angels had three players hit home runs and received a tremendous performance from Shohei Ohtani at the plate and on the mound.

The Angels will need to bring their offense again on Tuesday as they have Jose Quintana on the mound, while the Rangers will start Mike Foltynewicz. DraftKings Sportsbook currently has the run total set at 9.0. Foltynewicz has struggled this season for Texas. The 29-year-old has a record of 0-3 and ERA of 5.32. He also allowed at least one home run (8 total) in four-straight games, which is less than ideal.

In his last start, which was against the Angels, Foltynewicz allowed seven hits, three earned runs, three home runs, but struck out seven in 6.0 IP. We also do not have Ohtani penciled into our DFS lineups as he’s dealing with a blister. But if he is available, its a good spot to play him.
