Best Home Run Picks for Tuesday, April 26

  • Bryce Harper (+360)
  • Giancarlo Stanton (+360)
  • Tim Anderson (+450)
  • Franmil Reyes (+430)
  • Cody Bellinger (+345)

Bryce Harper (+360) - Colorado Rockies vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Bryce Harper homered in the Philadelphia Phillies win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday, and I’m going to back him to do it again tonight. The Rockies will send starter German Marquez to the mound in this one, and he’s already allowed four home runs so far this season.

Harper is 5-for-13 against Marquez in his career, and I think he stays hot and goes yard for the fourth time this season. -- Peter Dewey

Giancarlo Stanton (+360) - Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees

The Yankees bats finally came to life on Sunday when they put up 10 runs against the Guardians. I'm going to bank on them continuing that momentum into their series with the Baltimore Orioles, and I'll wager on Giancarlo Stanton hitting his third home run of the season tonight.

They'll face starting pitcher Jordan Lyles, who has got off to a strong start to his season, but I can't see that continuing. Last year, Lyles allowed 1.9 home runs per nine innings with an ERA of 5.15. I expect that version of Lyles to show up today, and Stanton to be one of the Yankees batters that will take advantage. -- Iain MacMillan

Tim Anderson (+450) - Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox

Anderson tees off against left handed pitching over his career, hitting .327 against southpaws for his career with a slugging percentage .523. Now, he gets Daniel Lynch on Tuesday at home, who has an ERA north of 5.00 in his career.

In a vaunted, but injured, White Sox lineup, I think Anderson is a good bet to go yard as Lynch tries to navigate the order. -- Reed Wallach

Franmil Reyes (+430) - Cleveland Guardians vs. Los Angeles Angels

Reyes and the Guardians come off a shutout in Anaheim and have a nice opportunity to redeem themselves against left-hander Patrick Sandoval this evening.

Sandoval's overall numbers look very good, with an ERA of 0.00 in eight consecutive innings. But via MLB Statcast, the peripherals indicate some regression coming. He's only gone four innings in both games he's pitched, and has a walk rate of 5.6 per nine innings this year.

Even more eye-opening, his expected weighted-on-base average (xwOBA) allowed is up at .426. League average is .320!

As for Reyes, he's crushed left-handed pitching over his career from the right side, and in ideal hitting conditions, will likely smoke one out. He ranks second on the Guardians behind only Jose Ramirez in barrel percentage this season. -- Ben Heisler

Cody Bellinger (+345) - Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

Bellinger has hit four homers this season and is one of the best offenses in the league. Tonight, he’ll go against Zach Davies, who’s given up three home runs in his last two starts. Bellinger usually has a lot of time between his home runs, but his multi-home run game against the Padres let’s me know that he’s in a good groove right now.

Don’t expect him to go to long without another homer. -- Donnavan Smoot
