Here, we’ll break down three of the best team stacks for the MLB slate on Sunday, July 25th.
Tigers vs. Royals, 2:10 p.m. ET
Jonathan Schoop ($5,100)
Eric Haase ($4,500)
Jeimir Candelario (4,100)
The Detroit Tigers have a fantastic pitching matchup, and their top hitters should be aggressive at the plate on Sunday. The Kansas City Royals will start rookie Daniel Lynch on the mound, who has three career appearances in the majors. He is a top pitching prospect but struggled in three starts in May of this year. He only threw a combined eight innings and allowed 14 earned runs. In his last start, he wasn’t able to make it out of the third inning against the Tigers. Lynch threw 2.2 innings and gave up four runs (three earned) and seven hits.
Diamondbacks vs. Cubs, 2:20 p.m. ET
Eduardo Escobar ($5,800)
Nick Ahmed ($3,900)
Daulton Varsho ($3,800)
If you are looking to fade a pitcher with a bigger sample size for your stack, you might give the Arizona Diamondbacks lineup a look. They will see Chicago Cubs starter Trevor Williams, who hasn’t put up very good numbers in his first year with the club. Williams made 12 appearances including 11 starts, and he has a 5.68 ERA this season. He allowed 11 runs in the last two innings, which span 8.2 innings, though just seven runs were earned. The Diamondbacks could be fantastic value with the low prices to even their most expensive batters.
Rays vs. Indians, 1:10 p.m. ET
Nelson Cruz ($5,400)
Yandy Diaz ($4,900)
Wander Franco ($4,800)
The Tampa Bay Rays lineup is getting expensive, but they have been worth it since the All-Star Break. They scored a combined 18 runs in the last two games, and the Rays averaged 7.4 runs per game over their past five games. Tampa Bay has a favorable matchup as well going up against Cleveland Indians starter Triston McKenzie. He appeared in 13 games with 12 starts and has a 5.91 ERA in his second season in the majors.
