We have a 17-game schedule in the majors on Tuesday, which means there are multiple opportunities to come away with a win in DraftKings baseball DFS. The main slate has 15 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, August 10th.

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

Jonathan Schoop ($4,700)
Akil Baddoo ($4,200)
Jeimer Candelario ($4,100)

To lead off our team stacks for tonight’s main slate, we are going to start with the Detroit Tigers, who are opening up a three-game set against the Baltimore Orioles. We could see a ton of runs scored in this game as DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total currently set at 10.

The Tigers will be facing Orioles starter Keegan Akin, who has struggled on the mound this season. Akin has a record of 0-5 and 7.66 ERA in 15 appearance (8 starts). The 26-year-old has an ERA of 6.41 at Camden Yards this season, which is just a microcosm of how bad the Orioles pitching has been. In Akin’s five home outings, opposing teams are hitting .308 at the plate. Tigers third baseman Jeimer Candelario is a quality value play at $4100 for this team stack. He currently has a five-game hitting streak and averaging 8.8 FPPG over that time.

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

Jose Abreu ($5,900)
Yoan Moncada ($4,900)
Eloy Jimenez ($4,400)

Sticking with the AL Central, we are going to pick the Chicago White Sox, who are looking to build off their 11-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Monday. DraftKings Sportsbook has the run total set at 10.5, which is one the highest totals on the board. The White Sox will be going up against Twins’ 26-year-old pitcher Griffin Jax.

Jax is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA through 8 outings (4 starts). The 26-year-old hasn’t had much success at home with a skyrocketing 7.27 ERA and .265 opponents batting average. White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez has been on fire in his last three games. The 24-year-old has 4 HRs and averaging 28.3 FPPG. At his value in DFS, it makes perfect sense to continue to ride the hot hand and see how much he can give a boost to your lineup.

Rangers vs. Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET

Mitch Haniger ($4,900)
Kyle Seager ($4,500)
Ty France ($3,900)

Our last team stack for tonight’s main slate is the Seattle Mariners, which might be an unorthodox choice since their offense is inconsistent. However, they are facing the Texas Rangers, who are one of the worst teams in baseball and has Kolby Allard starting on the mound.

The 23-year-old starter is 2-10 with an ERA of 5.07 through 22 outings (12 starts). Allard has struggled away from Globe Life Field this season with a 1-4 record and 6.06 ERA. Opposing teams are hitting .284 at the plate against Allard. Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager is a must start as he’s slugging .364 with 2 HRs and 3 RBI in 11 at-bats against Allard.
