Welcome everyone to our Lineup Optimizer strategy article for 5/23/22. This is a new article I will be doing daily that discusses the stacks and players the optimizer is popping for today’s slate. We are very blessed to have out optimizer powered by SaberSim — and you can get access by clicking HERE. Let’s get into it…
We have a big 10 game slate on tap tonight with some juicy single entry tournaments in the DraftKings lobby.
Tons of games and ways to go tonight, but two pitchers stand out to me — Gerrit Cole and Alex Cobb. Cobb is pretty much a lock to come in low-owned, which I’m fine with especially in the contest types I play.
The sims love two teams today — the Royals and the Dodgers. I hate stacking the Royals so I’m taking them off my list, and it would be tough to fit in a full five-man Dodgers stack with my pitchers so I’m likely removing them as well. That leaves the Phillies and the Diamondbacks, with an edge to Philly in my opinion. They match up with Tucker Davidson who has really struggled in the big leagues and he walks a lot of batters. We love to stack against pitchers that issue free passes, and the Phils certainly have the power to make him pay if he gets wild on Monday. Davidson throws a lot of fastballs — a pitch the big bats in this Phillies lineup excel against. Their run total is up half a run since open, and I think they’re in one of the best spots on Monday night.
I’ll be full-stacking the Phillies with Gerrit Cole + ALex Cobb at pitcher — Hoskins, Bohm, Harper and Castellanos are the must-plays for me.
