Welcome to our MLB DFS Top Stacks for 4/28/22! In this article, I’ll break down by top overall stacks for today’s main slate. Last year was an extremely big year for the Karma team in MLB, and we are looking to continue that success in 2022. I will be providing Core Plays for every main slate this season — you can gain access to the Core Plays as well as our premium discord here. You can also try out the Core Plays package with a $5 daily pass. Let’s get to the stacks…
New York Yankees
Ahhhh, yes. Another slate with the Yankees as the top stack…great! This team has been frustrating per usual but when they are on, they’re on. They’ve already seen Bruce Zimmermann once this season, so any of the changes he’s made they should be able to know and adapt to. This game also has some of the best weather on the slate with 15-20 mph winds blowing out to center field. I would be focusing on the full-stack here and not worrying about handedness of batters — we just want the power hitters here with Judge, Stanton and Donaldson sticking out. I also like the way Gleyber Torres has looked at the plate and the bottom of the order will always go lower-owned.
Nick Martinez has been one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball this season. He continues to throw his fastball which has been one of the worst pitches, as well. Cincy is clearly not a good baseball team right now, but this is a spot to jump on them. Vegas is respecting them here which shows you how bad Martinez truly is — they opened as +105 dogs and have since moved to -120 favorites with their implied run total rising to 4.5 runs. We can definitely focus on the full-stack here — and I love that Jake Fraley is leading off. He, Joey Votto and Tommy Pham are my favorites but you can add-in Tyler Naquin and Colin Moran as well for a five-man.
Corbin has looked terrible to begin this season, and it appears his fastball just isn’t what it used to be. He’s allowing a .439 wOBA with the pitch, and is walking a ton of batters as well. Guys that walk batters can be tougher to take one-offs against because there’s a decent chance your one-off is one of the walks, but it’s a perfect recipe for a full stack. Offering free passes and then being forced to throw to guys with lackluster stuff is what we want, and this Marlins lineup is sneaky. I would be focusing on the righties in Garrett Cooper, Brian Anderson, Jesus Aguilar and Jorge Soler + whoever is leading off on Thursday. I assume Jazz will be out of the lineup vs Corbin due to the lefty on lefty match-up.
