Cheap Bats in a Great Spot

We’re not going to find many useful, cheap arms tonight, which amplifies the need for cheaper bats. This generally means we have to rely on some smaller samples or below average bats in high upside spots and that’s pretty much what we’re dealing with in Texas tonight. Janson Junk has struck out five of 51 batters with as many home runs allowed and a high of 61 pitches in his three starts. LHBs exceed a .400 wOBA and xwOBA against him in a small sample and Texas only has three of those in the projected lineup with a wRC+ above 95 against RHP this year. However, those three range from fairly to extremely cheap in a lineup with a 4.63 team total that’s currently sixth best on the board. Nathaniel Lowe (115 wRC+, .165 ISO vs RHP) costs $4.4K on DraftKings, but that is the only price tag among the three above $3K on either site. DJ Peters (101 wRC+, .267 ISO) has flashed some power, while Willie Calhoun (101 wRC+, .124 ISO) costs the minimum on both sites and is projected to bat leadoff. It may not be pretty, but a left-handed Texas stack is going to allow you to do a lot of things with the rest of your lineup.

Best Stack, Plain and Simple

If at this point you don't realize that Coors is the best place to hit in baseball, you probably need more than just this premium content and might need to do some research, but today this is a great spot for the Rangers bats. Its going to be hot over in Denver today (not that I would know, I haven't left my house yet today). Castellani is getting his second major league start, and from all appearances of his minor league numbers he is not a good pitcher. He owned a 8.31 ERA and 8.25 FIP in the minors last season and so I can't imagine that he's going to have any success in the majors. He had a 30.4% HR/FB rate last season and looking at his pitch type, he grads out as being somewhere between splits neutral to normal splits so all power bats are in play here. Hammer in every Texas bat you can on this slate and don't worry about the ownership.

Expect Some Long Home Runs

This matchup is an absolute dream for the Texas power hitters. They get to play in the summer weather at Coors Field, and they face off against a well below average pitcher. Ryan Castellani had an ERA of 5.49 at AA ball in 2018 and an ERA of 8.31 at AAA ball in 2019. He walks a ton of batters. He allows a lot of hard contact. The cardboard cutouts in the stands need to watch out for some LONG home runs tonight. Give me Gallo all day in this matchup. All the Texas bats are in play, with Calhoun, Choo, and Odor also being in the power mix from the left side.

GPP Stack

I like the Texas Rangers as a stack against Aaron Brooks. The Rangers have a few good lefty bats to throw at Brooks, who this year is giving up a 370 wOBA, 243 ISO, and a 38% hard hit rate to lefty bats. Brooks is a low strikeout guy and he has a 8.6% swinging strike rate which is the third lowest on the slate. Guys like Santana, Odor, Calhoun, and Choo are the 4 I would want to start my stack off with in tournaments.

Rangers are an intriguing stack vs. Berrios

Normally a guy to avoid when choosing hitters, there are a few reasons it might be wise to get some exposure to Rangers’ bats tonight. Already very hitter-friendly Globe Life Park projects to see a further increase in overall offense per WeatherEdge. Jose Berrios has some wide splits that we can target, one of which being his home-road split. Since 2017, Berrios has a 2.93 ERA, 20% K-BB and .277 xwOBA allowed in home games, compared to a 4.44 ERA, 13.6% K-BB and .316 xwOBA in road games. He is also much worse versus lefties; he has a 18.8% K-BB and .280 xwOBA allowed vs. righties compared to a 14.5% K-BB and .315 xwOBA vs. lefties. The Rangers have 5 lefties in their projected lineup for tonight’s matchup at home: Shin-Soo Choo (.378 xwOBA vs. RHP this year), Nomar Mazara (.354), Danny Santana (.344), Willie Calhoun (.320) and Rougned Odor (.307). Logan Forsythe (.363) and Elvis Andrus (.303) are also potential options, but will not have the platoon advantage versus Berrios. Given the hitting environment, Rangers’ hitters are pretty cheap as Choo, Andrus, Mazara, Odor and Forsythe are all $4.1k or less on Draftkings, while Calhoun is $4.4k and Santana is $4.7k. Also working in Rangers’ hitters favor is a hitter-friendly umpire in Paul Hoberg. They currently have a 5.20 implied line vs. Berrios and the Twins.

Sneaky Stack

My favorite stack in tournaments is the Texas Rangers. They face Jordan Lyles in Milwaukee which is a great park for left handed hitters. Lyles struggles a lot more to lefty bats this year giving up a 272 ISO, 406 wOBA, and a 40% fly ball rate. I like most of the left handed bats for Texas but my top four are Santana, Choo, Odor, and Calhoun.

Rangers are an intriguing GPP stack vs. struggling Snell

Blake Snell started off the season incredibly well, but has really fallen apart over the past 30 days with an 11.94 ERA, 4.75 xFIP, 5.00 SIERA, and 10.8% K-BB. Over that time frame Snell has seen his dominant curveball collect a pitch value of -3.9; the pitch was worth a pitch value of 13.2 last year. His changeup has also gone downhill recently with a -3.9 value after it earned a 7.2 mark in 2018. Looking at his Statcast data, his curveball had a spin rate of 2517 RPM in 2018 and has averaged 2487 RPM so far in 2019, though over the past month that number has fallen to 2359. Snell’s offspeed pitches (curve, change, slider) over the past month have been ineffective as he’s allowed a .332 xwOBA when using them. He’s also given up a .358 xwOBA with his fastball over that time. Especially with Snell expected to see high ownership today, Rangers bats make for an interesting leverage stack with Snell clearly trying to regain his feel in the mound. Joey Gallo (.398 xwOBA vs. LHP), Asdrubal Cabrera (.331), Willie Calhoun (.329), Ronald Guzman (.324), Elvis Andrus (.312) and Danny Santana (.306) are all options if you’re looking to get contrarian. Delino Deshields (.276) has struggled vs. LHP this year but has a decent .310 career wOBA vs. LHP and will lead off at just $3.9k on Draftkings. Gallo has been their hottest bat with a .411 xwOBA over the past 2 weeks, followed by Danny Santana at .394.

Rangers bats in another good spot today at home vs. Nova

The Rangers will face Ivan Nova this afternoon in the heat at Globe Life Park and have a juicy 6.16 implied total. Nova continues to hang onto a rotation spot despite been terrible this year with a 6.01 ERA / 4.73 xFIP / 5.04 SIERA with an 8 % K-BB and 8.2% SwStr. His Statcast numbers are just as bad as he has a .355 xwOBA allowed, 88.4 MPH aEV and 7.4 % barrel rate. Nova is slightly more vulnerable vs. lefties; he has a .356 xwOBA allowed vs. LHB since 2018 compared to a .329 mark vs. RHB. The Rangers have just 2 right-handed bats in their projected lineup. Willie Calhoun (.460 xwOBA vs. RHP this year), Shin-Soo Choo (.399), Nomar Mazara (.371), Ronald Guzman (.367) and Danny Santana (.354) are all great lefty options that mash RHP. Also in play are Elvis Andrus (.303), Rougned Odor (.284) and Asdrubal Cabrera (.276). Mazara cranked 2 homers yesterday and has been their hottest hitter over the past 14 days with a .392 xwOBA. Mazara and Calhoun are both great values on Draftings at just $4.4k each. Cabrera, Odor and Guzman are all $4k or less. Rangers bats will likely see decent ownership but they are in a great spot here and arguably underpriced given the matchup.

Rangers have highest implied total on the board tonight at home vs. Reynaldo Lopez

There should be a ton of runs to go around tonight in Arlington as two bad pitchers will faceoff in the heat at Globe Life Park. The game currently has an O/U of 11.5 and WeatherEdge is expecting an increase in runs scored (WeatherEdge available for premium subscribers). Reynaldo Lopez has been terrible this year with a 6.31 ERA / 5.71 xFIP / 5.10 SIERA with a 11% K-BB, 49.4% FB rate, 39% hard contact rate and 1.59 WHIP. He also has a .372 xwOBA, 10.4% barrel rate and 90.5 MPH aEV on the year. The Rangers lineup is missing some pop without Joey Gallo and Hunter Pence in the order but still has plenty of good options in this matchup. Shin-Soo Choo (140 wRC+, .225 ISO vs. RHP since 2018), Danny Santana (129 wRC+, .227 ISO), Asdrubal Cabrera (117 wRC+, .228 ISO), Willie Calhoun (111 wRC+, .196 ISO), Ronald Guzman (105 wRC+, .215 ISO), Nomar Mazara (.101 wRC+, .165 ISO), and Elvis Andrus (86 wRC+, .128 ISO) are all good options in tonight’s lineup. Santana has been their hottest hitter with a .360 xwOBA over the last 2 weeks, followed by Guzman at .356. All Rangers’ bats are available for $5k or less on Draftkings and will likely be a popular stack tonight. They have a 6.19 implied line vs. Lopez and the White Sox.

Top Stack of the Night

Calling the Texas Rangers the top stack of the night is far from bold. The Rangers unsurprisingly have the highest implied run total on the slate (6.1) as they find themselves in a posh home matchup against Mike Leake at hitter friendly GlobeLife Park in Arlington. Leake represents an ideal power matchup for the Rangers as the Mariners righty has already given up 11 HRs in 54 innings pitched this season. Leake has struggled with the long ball his entire career and things have only gotten worse the last couple of seasons as he’s seen a dip in his ground ball rate. Backing up Leake is a Mariners bullpen that is allowing the third highest home runs per nine innings (1.59) in the league.
