Slate Overview:

  • 12 Games

  • Weather Concerns

  • Rain:

  • SDP @ COL

  • TOR @ ATL

  • BAL @ NYM

  • Wind:

  • PHI @ WAS – Wind blowing in 5-8 MPH.

  • OAK @ BOS – Wind blowing out to right 10-15 MPH.

  • KCR @ DET – Wind blowing out to center 5-10 MPH.

  • BAL @ NYM – Wind blowing in 10-12 MPH.

  • Things that stand out to me:

  • At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Ohtani now has a 22.6% BB% and that paired with Houston only striking out 19% of the time and having a team average .182 ISO against RHPs could spell trouble for Ohtani. Having the 3rd highest SIERA on the slate and giving up 36.4% hard contact are also factors working against Ohtani.

  • Luis Patino is scheduled to open for the Rays tonight and Ryan Yarbrough is projected to be the long reliever, Yarbrough has flashed his upside that he had last year but he has had multiple instances this season giving up 5+ runs in relief, also gives me an excuse to play $3.7K Luke Voit coming off of the IL today.
