Best MLB team stacks for DFS on Tuesday, May 11th

We go over some of the best MLB teams to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Tuesday’s main slate.

MLB: MAY 07 White Sox at Royals

We have a full 15-game schedule in the majors Tuesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 12 games starting at 7:05 p.m. ET. There’s also three early games beginning at 3:45 p.m. ET with the Texas Rangers playing the San Francisco Giants.

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.

Phillies vs. Nationals, 7:20 p.m. ET

Trea Turner ($5600)
Juan Soto ($5300)
Ryan Zimmerman ($4200)
Yan Gomes ($4100)
Starlin Castro ($3100)

For our first team DFS stack, we are going to take a look at an NL East matchup between the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals. Both the Phillies and Nats are coming off of tough series over the weekend against the Braves and Yankees.

On the mound for the Phils will be Chase Anderson, who will be opposed by Erick Fredde. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at nine, which is one of only two games that has a run total that high. The team stack we’ll be focusing on is the Nationals. Anderson has not been great this season for the Phillies with a record of 1-3 and 5.54 ERA through six starts. In his last outing against the Milwaukee Brewers, the 33-year-old allowed 4 hits (1 HR), 4 walks, 3 earned runs, and only struck out in 4.1 IP. This season, right-handed batters have found some success against Anderson, slashing .311/.373/.467 with a home run and 4 RBI. Neither pitcher is necessarily a world beater in this game, but Fredde has been more consistent.

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

Matt Chapman ($4900)
Jed Lowrie ($4700)
Matt Olson ($4100)
Mark Canha ($3800)
Seth Brown ($2900)

Another game where we could see some runs scored is between the Oakland Athletics and the Boston Red Sox at 7:10 p.m. at Fenway Park. Both teams enter this three-game set at the top of their respective divisions. Oakland has a record of 2-3 in their last five game, while Boston is 4-1 in their last five. This season, the Red Sox have one of the better offenses in the majors, which should make this an easy stack choice. But we are going to instead play the Athletics, which could give us value and salary cap flexibility. Chris Bassitt will get the start for Oakland, who will be opposed Nathan Eovaldi for Boston.

Eovaldi struggled in his last start against the putrid Tigers’ offense, allowing 7 hits, 6 earned runs, 1 walk and only recording five strike outs in 4.1 IP. The 31-year-old has a record of 4-2 with an ERA of 4.62 through seven starts. In seven games against Oakland, he’s 1-2 with an ERA of 4.28. Despite not allowing a single home run this season, right-handed hitters are still slugging .279/.329/.726.

White Sox vs. Twins, 8:10 p.m. ET

Tim Anderson ($5100)
Yoan Moncada ($4600)
Yermin Mercedes ($4000)
Adam Eaton ($3700)
Nick Madrigal ($2700)

To wrap up our DFS team stacks, we are going to focus on an AL Central matchup between the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox. Kenta Maeda will get the start for the Twins, while Dylan Cease will be on the mound for the White Sox. Chicago is coming off a three-game sweep over the Kansas City Royals and will try to win their fourth-straight game on Tuesday night.

The 33-year-old Maeda has been up and down this season for the Twins. He has a record of 2-2 and 5.02 ERA in five starts this season. Maeda bounced back in his last start against the Texas Rangers, where he gave up 2 hits, 2 walks, and struck out eight hitters in 5.1 scoreless IP. But before that start, Maeda allowed three home runs in back-to-back starts against the Cleveland Indians and Oakland Athletics. If you are going to use a White Sox stack, its best to get a ton of lefties in your lineup. Left-handed hitters are slashing .333/.389/.591 with 4 HRs and 8 RBI against the veteran pitcher.
