5/24 MLB ARTICLE

PITCHER

BLAKE SNELL

· Indians have 4th lowest BA vs LHP this season and 7th lowest SLG percentage

· 21% aggregate K rate for the Indians and Snell has a 33% K rate on the year

· Low 3.5 total for the Indians and I can see Snell mowing down this lineup as they are only averaging 3.88 runs per game which is 6th lowest in mlb.


NOAH SYNDERGAARD

· Extremely righty heavy lineup for DET with 7 RHH in the projected lineup

· Syndergaard has a 26% K rate to RHH on the season and DET strikes out a ton with a 24.9% aggregate K rate

· Tigers only averaging 3.3 runs per game which is only behind MIA for last place


TRENT THORNTON

· Righty heavy Padres lineup with 7/9 hitters right handed

· Thornton has held RHH to a .099 ISO this season compared to a .267 ISO to LHH

· Padres strike out a ton with a 23% aggregate K rate on the season


FIRST BASE

MATT CARPENTER

· Foltynewicz has been terrible this season with only 17 strikeouts in 27 innings and 10 homeruns given up

· Cardinals roughed him up two starts ago and can do the same today with the amazing hitting weather in St. Louis

· Folty’s main pitch is the fastball and Carpenter has a .303 ISO on that pitch, second highest on the team to Paul Dejong


CHRIS DAVIS

· Hoffman only has a 17% K rate so decent chance Davis won’t strikeout multiple times against him

· Hoffman is a primary fastball guy as he throws a fastball over 50% to both righties and lefties

· Chris Davis is only $3600 which is a good value for hitting in Coors against a below average pitcher


SECOND BASE

LUIS ARRAEZ

· Only 3.7K which is incredibly cheap given the matchup and the upside Arraez has

· Tremendous contact hitter and is $500 cheaper than the second cheapest Twin

· Lopez has 5.47 xFIP and gives up plenty of hard hits and contact


NICKY LOPEZ

· Continues to be incredibly cheap on DK at just $3400 and bats second in the batting order

· Good young prospect with lots of upside and has hit the ball well since he’s been called up

· Second base is a position I would want to spend down at especially with both Arraez and Lopez being so cheap


THIRD BASE

NOLAN ARENADO

· Rockies have the highest total on the slate against Means and that terrible bullpen

· One of the best lefty hitters in MLB. Is hitting .370 with a .444 ISO this season

· Hits the ball much better in Coors and Means only has a 15% K rate to RHH compared to 30% K rate to LHH

· Means is giving up a .197 ISO and a 43% fly ball rate to RHH


RIO RUIZ

· Much cheaper than Arenado is you can’t afford Nolan

· Projected to hit fifth for BAL and is only $3800

· BAL also has a high total at 5.3 runs and Ruiz has been much better to RHP than LHP this season


SHORT STOP

MARCUS SEMIEN

· Career .268 BA vs LHP compared to .243 BA vs RHP and ISO is almost 50 points higher vs LHP

· Bats leadoff and LeBlanc has been terrible this season

· RHH are hitting .344 against LeBlanc with a .688 SLG

· Semien has a .255 ISO against the change up which LeBlanc throws the most out of any of his pitches to righties at 35%


Amed Rosario

· Gets a great matchup against Soto and a bad bullpen

· Will be batting leadoff and the Mets have a 4.7 total despite playing in Citi Field

· Rosario is fairly cheap on DK at $3900 and has upside especially batting leadoff


OUTFIELD

STEPHEN PISCOTTY

· .373 BA to LHP this season with a .255 ISO compared to a .217 BA against RHP with a .098 ISO

· LeBlanc has gotten destroyed against RHH

· Even though this game is being played in OAK, A’s still have a high total


CHAD PINDER

· Another guy who hits lefties extremely well

· .300 BA to LHP this season and a .260 ISO

· Career BA to lefties is 46 points higher than BA to righties


IAN DESMOND

· .333 ISO to LHP this season compared to .131 against RHP

· Might see a bump in the batting order with Blackmon doubtful


JOSE MARTINEZ

· Only $3700 and has a .313 BA this season

· Has power too and could take one deep given Folty’s struggles with the long ball this season

· Very high total for the Cardinals so you are getting a good bargain with Martinez


DAVID FLETCHER

· Only $3600 and projected to bat leadoff against Drew Smyly

· Has been hitting the ball well as of late

· Only has 10 strikeouts in 160 ABs this season

· Has some power and some SB upside


TOP STACKS: Rockies, Athletics, Angels, Cardinals, Twins
