Game by Game:

SDP@CIN:

  • Tyler Mahle

  • Traditionally give up more than double the amount of power to RHHs but that has flipped in the small sample size so far this year.

  • 4 SDP batters striking out 24% of the time or more to RHPs this year.

  • I would focus on Profar, Kim, and Cronenworth

  • Nick Martinez

  • Getting crushed by batters of both handednesses, giving up a .385 ISO to LHHs and a .310 ISO to RHHs.

  • I would focus on Votto, Drury, and Fraley.

MIL@PIT:

  • Freddy Peralta

  • Very good against LHHs which is good for him considering most of PITs power comes from LHHs and they have 6 in the lineup.

  • 6 PIT batters are striking out more than 23% of the time to RHPs over the last 2 years.

  • Jose Quintana

  • Has been decent against LHHs in his career but gives up a good amount of power to RHHs (.210 ISo allowed to RHHs in the 2021 & 2022 seasons).

  • K Rate is decent at 26% and 5 MIL batters are striking out over 24% of the time to LHPs over the last 2 years.

  • If you go here I would focus on Renfroe, Brosseau, and Taylor.

BAL@NYY

  • Bruce Zimmermann

  • Has seemed to turn the corner from awful to respectable SP at $6.8K he is very affordable on DK.

  • The wind blowing out to right doesn't do him any favors.

  • I would focus on Judge, Rizzo, Locastro who have (.533, .412, and .750 ISO's v LHPs this year) very small sample size though.

  • Jameson Tallion

  • Has been getting a lot more ground balls this year and has helped him a lot.

  • I would focus on Muillins, Santander, and Hays.

  • K rate is down to 22%.

COL@PHI

  • Zach Wheeler

  • Usually doesn't have splits but is allowing a .172 ISO to LHHs this year.

  • Joe/ Blackmon/ Cron/ McMahon all have ISOs over .200 v RHPs this year.

  • Wheeler has looked bad but the wind blowing will probably keep everything in the park today.

  • COL only has 3 batters striking out more than 23% of the time to RHPs this year.

  • Austin Gomer

  • PHI has 5 batters striking out more than 28% of the time to LHPs this year, that being said they have 4 batters with ISOs over .200 v LHPs this year.

  • Gomber could make a nice GPP play if the wind helps keep everything in the park.

MIA@WAS

  • Trevor Rodgers

  • Has not looked like the dominant pitcher of last year but today is a great spot for a bounce-back...wind blowing in & only 2 MIA batters with ISOs over .100 v LHPs this year.

  • Last year was dominant v LHHs which is good for him considering Soto and Bell are Washingtons' main source of power.

  • Patrick Corbin

  • Gives up more power to RHHs (.257 ISO allowed to RHHs over the 2021-22 seasons)

  • BB% is up to 15% so that could be a ticking timebomb.

  • I would focus on Soler & Garcia who both have ISOs over .250 v LHPs this year.

DET@MIN

  • Brock Ober

  • Ober sucks but so do the Tigers, only Medows and baez have ISOs over .100 v RHPs this year.

  • 5 DET batters strike out 26% of the time or more to RHPs this year.

  • Tarik Skuball

  • Has looked great this year only allowing a .094 ISO to RHHs and a .000 ISO to LHHs this year.

  • K rate is at 25% and 5 MIN batters are striking out 20% or more of the time to LHPs.

  • Garlick and Kepler would be the only ones that I worry about.

SEA@TBR

  • Chris Flexin

  • Good vs LHHs but give up a good amount of power to RHHs, he isn't exciting to play but matched up well against TBR.

  • I would focus Franco & Pinto.

  • Jeffrey Springs

  • Give up a lot more power to LHHs, will only pitch for a few innings.

  • I would focus France, Winker, and Crawford.

HOU@TEX

  • Justin Verlander

  • Only W.Calhoun and Garcia have ISOs over .100 v RHPs this year.

  • 6 TEX batters striking out more than 20% of the time to RHPs.

  • Verlander does give up decent power to LHHs so I would focus on Seager, W.Calhoun, Miller and Garcia.

  • Martin Perez

  • Good v LHHs give up power to RHHs .203 ISO allowed over the 2021-22 seasons.

  • I would focus on Yuli Gurriel, Diaz, Siri.

KC@CWS

  • Michael Kopech

  • 30% K rate this season.

  • 6 KC hitters have a .105 ISO or below v RHPs this year.

  • Perez and Dozier they only ones finding success against RHPs this year.

  • Brad Keller

  • Has been good v LHHs this season only allowing a .054 ISO.

  • Gives up decent power to RHHs (.174 ISO allowed).

  • I would focus on Vaughn, Burger, and Pollock.
