We have a 15-game schedule in the majors Friday, 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 Friday, July 9th.

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

Rhys Hoskins ($5,500)
Bryce Harper ($5,000)
Didi Gregorius ($3,800)
J.T. Realmuto ($3,800)

The Phillies are coming off a hot four-game series against the Cubs, where they scored 9.75 runs per game. Philadelphia will be looking to put up some runs on Red Sox starter Garrett Richards, who has not pitched well at home this season. Richards is 1-3 with an ERA of 6.75 in six games at Fenway Park. Right-handed hitters have hit the veteran starting pitcher hard to the tune of .307 and 6 HRs.

Even though he isn’t a right-handed hitter, Harper is a must start in DFS. The star outfielder is starting to pick it up at the plate, bringing his average to .281 with 15 HRs and 31 RBI. In his last six games, Harper is averaging 13.2 FPPG.

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

Jose Abreu ($6,000)
Tim Anderson ($5,600)
Brian Goodwin ($3,900)
Leury Garcia ($3,700)

Another game where we could see some runs put on the scoreboard is between the White Sox and Orioles. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 9.5. The White Sox will be our stack play as they gear up to face Jorge Lopez. Lopez like most of the Orioles’ starting pitchers have struggled on the mound this season. The 28-year-old is 2-11 with an ERA of 6.02 in 17 starts. At Camden Yards, Lopez has allowed 6 HRs and .283 average to opposing teams.

The White Sox have dealt with their fair share of injuries, but Tim Anderson has remained healthy and is one of the top players for this team stack. The dynamic shortstop is valued at $5600 and has a nine-game hitting streak. Over that time, he’s averaging 9.66 FPPG, which is more than his season average of 8.7

Royals vs. Indians, 7:10 p.m. ET

Bobby Bradley ($4,700)
Amed Rosario ($4,500)
Franmil Reyes ($3,900)
Cesar Hernandez ($3,800)

Our final DFS team stack will be the Cleveland Indians, who get a chance to go up against Brad Keller. Keller like Jorge Lopez has struggled this season and is a pitcher, who you fade in DFS and sports betting.

The Indians’ offense should be able to tee off on Keller, who has given up 13 HRs in 18 starts this season. The 25-year-old has had his fair share of struggles on the road with a 5.67 ERA and .335 opponents batting average. With Jose Ramirez in a slump for Cleveland, Franmil Reyes is a perfect power play at $3900. The 25-year-old has hit a home run in three-straight games and is averaging 23.6 FPPG.
