We have a full 15-game schedule in the majors on Tuesday, which means there are still multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 14 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 Tuesday, June 22nd.

White Sox vs. Pirates, 7:05 p.m. ET

Jose Abreu ($5,200)
Yoan Moncada ($5,100)
Tim Anderson ($4,700)

After getting swept in four games by the Houston Astros last week, the Chicago White Sox will be looking to take out their frustration on Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson. This season, the Sox have been one of the best offenses against lefties, hitting .274/.345/.456 with 25 HRs. Anderson has been solid at PNC Park with a 3.79 ERA, despite being 1-3 in seven starts. Right-handed hitters are crushing the 31-year-old, slugging .287 with 12 HRs.

With the White Sox dealing with a multitude of injuries in the outfield, it might be best to stay away from their outfielders. However, a team stack of Jose Abreu, Yoan Moncada, and Tim Anderson can still produce points. Anderson, who is the cheaper option, may hold the most value as he’s slashing .277/.309/.354 against left-handed pitching.

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

Jose Altuve ($5,500)
Carlos Correa ($4,800)
Yuli Gurriel ($4,700)

The Astros have been one of the best teams in baseball, winning eight consecutive games, which includes a 10-2 win against Baltimore on Monday night. Over the course of their win streak, Houston is averaging 8.1 runs per game. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total, set at 9.5 runs, which is tied for the highest total on the board.

Houston should be able to put up runs on Orioles starter Jorge Lopez, who has a 6.16 ERA at home and 1-3 record in seven starts. The Astros have a lot of a tremendous options for a team stack up and down their lineup. But since right-handed hitters have done fairly well against Lopez, it’s only right to go with an all right-handed stack. Second baseman Jose Altuve has been mashing at the plate, averaging 15.7 FPPG in his last seven games.

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

Matt Olson ($5,600)
Matt Chapman ($4,700)
Ramon Laureano ($4,400)

We saw an offensive explosion between these two teams on Monday night as they scored a combined 11 runs. However, the Rangers were the ones scoring a majority of the runs, with an 8-3 victory. But the Athletics should be able to put up some runs on Rangers left-handed starter Taylor Hearn Tuesday night. The southpaw is getting beat up by right-handed hitters, who are slashing .304/.385/.576 with 7 HRs and 12 RBI.

Even though he isn’t a left-handed bat, Matt Olson is a must-start in this stack and just DFS in general. Olson has quietly entered his name into the AL MVP conversation, hitting .304 with 20 home runs, 53 RBI, and averaging 9.9 FPPG. He has a nine-game hitting streak going on, where he’s also slugged five home runs.
