We have another full 15-game slate in the majors on Wednesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has nine games starting at 7:05 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 Wednesday, May 26th.

Reds vs. Nationals, 7:05 p.m. ET

Jesse Winker ($5800)
Nick Castellanos ($5500)
Tucker Barnhart ($4300)

We are back again for another day of DFS team stacks. On Tuesday night, we did pretty well with the Braves (19 fantasy points) and the Indians stack (27 fantasy points). It also helped if you had either Shohei Ohtani or Adolis Garcia in your lineups, too.

We are looking to go on a two-day win streak with a Cincinnati Reds stack. Cincinnati has one of the best offenses in the majors, averaging 5.04 runs per games. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 10, which is not impossible with Cincy’s lineup.

Nats starter Joe Ross is 2-4 with an ERA of 5.72 and has allowed 9 home runs in 8 starts. Lefties are hitting well versus the 28-year-old starter this season, slugging .292/.427/.508 with 4 HRs and 13 walks. With that in mind, Winker is a must-start in this stack as he is hitting .346 with 13 HRs, 28 RBI and averaging 10.9 DKFP.

Blue Jays vs. Yankees, 7:05 p.m. ET

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. ($5400)
Marcus Semien ($5300)
Randal Grichuk ($4300)

For our second team stack on the main slate, we are going to head to the Big Apple, where the Toronto Blue Jays are playing the New York Yankees. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total for this matchup currently set at 9.5. Alex Manoah will be making his MLB debut for the Jays, while Domingo German will start for the Yankees.

With a rookie making his MLB debut, it seems like the best play would be a New York stack. But we are going to instead put together a Jays stack with Vlad Jr. leading the way. Guerrero has been one of the breakout stars this season in the majors, hitting .337 with 16 HRs, 41 RBI, and averaging 11.4 fantasy points per game.

The young power hitter is in the midst of a three-game hitting streak, where he’s slugged three home runs in back-to-back games. In seven at-bats against German, Guerrero is hitting .286 with a home run and RBI.

Giants vs. Diamondbacks, 9:40 p.m. ET

Buster Posey ($4600)
Brandon Crawford ($4400)
Evan Longoria ($3900)

To wrap-up our team stacks for Wednesday night’s main slate, we are going to look at the San Francisco Giants, who are playing the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Giants snapped their mini three-game losing streak with a 8-0 win on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Arizona has lost nine consecutive games and will have to face Johnny Cueto.

The Giants’ offense gets a favorable matchup against Arizona starter Merrill Kelly, who is 2-5 and has a 5.05 ERA in nine starts. When you look at his splits this year, right-handed hitters are finding success, slugging .291/.336/.491 with 5 HRs and 15 RBI. Brandon Crawford is a sneaky play, who bats from the left side, but is hitting right-handed pitchers well at a scorching .306/.398/.602 with 8 HR and 24 RBI.
