05/08

Slate Overview:

  • 7 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • Rain Watch:

  • ARI @ NYM

  • CWS @ KCR

  • Wind:

  • BOS @ BAL – Wind blowing left to right 8-10 MPH.

  • SEA @ TEX – Wind blowing in 15-20 MPH (check roof status).

  • CWS @ KCR – Wind blowing 10-15 MPH out to left field.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • Zac Lowther in 326 Innings pitched in the minor leagues has a earned himself a 2.26 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 380 Strikeouts, and that even through the juiced ball time…. could be a lottery ticket play in a big GPP…Boston only strikes out to LHPs at a 18% clip though.

  • MATZ struggles A LOT more with RHHs (Yuli, Bregman, Correa).

  • Vince Velasquez has been dominant against LHHs this year, I’d avoid Freddy & Ozzie (I know Ozzie is a switch hitter, but he only had 4 ABs as a LHH v RHP on his career).

  • A lot of matchups wish pitchers that have little data on them this season, if you have conviction on a matchup, you’ll get that stack at lower ownership.
