Stack DuJour: 4.17.17

In the Stack-Du-Jour, we offer one stacks of sticks for today’s MLB Slate on Fanduel. Here’s a hot stack to consider today. 

The Oakland Athletics will return home to face Texas’ AJ Griffin. Griffin has limited striekout upside and a massive hard contact and fly ball rate. Even though the A’s are in a big park, the outlook looks good.

Here are the numbers on Griffin accoridng to FanGraphs:

What stands out is the massive FlyBall rate to RHB, and Hard contact rates to all hitters. The A’s, as a team, have a WRC+ of 140 against RHP and a WOBA of .340 thus, this year.

So let’e go ahead and stack up the A’s Bats, 2-5.

1- Khris Davis- 3.4K OF

Davis is a hard hitting RHB, who has homered in two of his last games. He should be chalky given his .367 WOBA and .300 ISO rate against RHP, which is insanity. But the HR upside is too good to pass up.

2 – Matt Joyce- 2.2K OF

One of the most appealing things about the A’s stack is the salary relief. With the combination of upside and cost, you can afford a pitcher of your choice. Joyce will likey bat in the 3 spot, just ahead of Davis and the lefty has an even better WOBA than Davis if you can believe it.

3- Steven Vogt- 2.8K C

Vogt will likely bat the 5 spot against Griffin and fills that dreaded C spot in your line, with a quality spot in the order and good numbers against RHP. Hitting for over 300, with a WOBA of .334 in the last two years.

4- Jed Lowrie- 2.3K 2B

Finding a good cheap middle infielder who can actually hit is tough, but Lowrie does hit RHP.  Not for power, but a few walks ahead of Davis and Joyce, in the top of the order, could create some great value in your lineup.
