6/7 MLB ARTICLE

PITCHER

JACOB DEGROM

· 3.07 XFIP with a 29% K rate on the season

· Rockies offense is bad outside of Coors

· Degrom is way too cheap considering the price tags for Kershaw and Cole


ANDREW HEANEY

· Outstanding the first couple starts with a 19.8% swinging strike rate and 44% overall K rate

· Those numbers will go down, but it is another great K matchup against SEA

· Projected SEA lineup has a 27.9% aggregate K rate


BRANDON WOODRUFF

· Really nice price tag on DK and is a massive favorite here

· 3.5 xFIP with a 28% K rate on the season and 11.6% swinging strike rate

· Pirates do not strikeout a lot, but I feel like Woodruff can have success here


FIRST BASE

FREDDIE FREEMAN

· Urena is much worse to LHH than RHH with a .182 ISO and only 14% K rate to LHH compared to a .127 ISO and a 18% K rate to RHH

· Urena’s main pitch is the sinker as he throws it 62% of the time to both sides of the plate and Freeman has a .249 ISO on that pitch and a 47% hard hit rate, which is the highest on the team

· Freeman has been hot lately and has a .269 ISO to RHP this year


ROWDY TELLEZ

· Dirt cheap at $3200, projected to bat clean up, and Jays have a nice total

· Kelly’s main pitch is the fastball and Tellez has a .306 ISO and a 52% hard hit rate against that pitch

· Career .242 ISO against RHP


SECOND BASE

BRIAN DOZIER

· Tremendous hitter vs LHP with a .372 BA this season and a .326 ISO

· Margevicius has given up a .208 ISO to RHH and has a 5.13 xFIP this season

· Margevicius relies on his fastball and Dozier has an insane .456 ISO against lefty fastballs since 2016


CESEAR HERNANDEZ

· Taken over the leadoff duties with McCutchen out for the year

· Switch hitter who bats much better from the left side of the plate and Mahle has been terrible to LHH

· Is batting .304 this season with all 6 homeruns coming against RHP

· Cheap on DK and Phillies have a high


THIRD BASE

MIKE MOUSTAKAS

· Highest total on the slate belongs to the Brewers

· Has a .325 ISO against RHP this season and Davis has given up a .308 ISO to LHH in a small sample this season

· Rookie Davis had over a 5+ ERA in AAA this season and the Brewers should feast


CHESLOR CUTHBERT

· Been red hot since he got called back up

· Royals has a 5.3 total and Cuthbert is really cheap

· Nova only has a 13.5% K rate on the season and an 8% swinging strike rate

· 3 bombs in just 24 AB this season and is hitting well over .300


SHORT STOP

ADALBERTO MONDESI

· Nova is giving up over a .300 BA and .500 SLG to both sides of the plate

· Mondesi should be able to get on base and if he does, we know he will try to get stolen bases

· Royals stack is appealing because they lead the league in stolen bases and it’s a great spot against Nova


ELVIS ANDRUS

· Decent price tag against a lefty playing in TEX with the wind blowing out

· .293 BA against LHP this season and Anderson throws his sinker 54% to righties and Andrus has the best numbers by far against that pitch with a .231 ISO.


OUTFIELD

CHRISTIAN YELICH

· Over a .400 BA at home this season

· .357 BA vs RHP with a .429 ISO


BRYCE HARPER

· .252 career ISO vs RHP

· Mahle is terrible against LHH

· Has been hitting the ball really hard lately and striking out a lot less


KIKE HERNANDEZ

· Pomeranz is giving up a .336 BA and a .625 SLG vs RHH this season

· Kike is a lefty killer with a .230 ISO this season and is batting 100 points higher against lefties than righties


ALEX GORDON

· Power and a little bit of speed

· .297 BA against RHP this season with a .245 ISO

· Nova is giving up a .360 BA and a .580 SLG against LHH


JAY BRUCE

· Unbelievably hot since he has joined the Phillies

· .336 ISO against RHP this season

· Expensive but should be low owned

· Last 10 games has a .441 BA with 5 bombs and 6 doubles in only 34 ABs
