Three Up for June 15, 2019

Greatest Pitcher

Frankie Montas vs. SEA ($9.9k DraftKings, $8.7k FanDuel)

Montas has been on a roll just about all season. He’s generated high quality begins in six of his final seven journeys to the mound and owns a stable 3.54 ERA together with an ideal 3-Zero mark at pitcher-friendly Oakland Coliseum. Montas has basically been proof against blowups this season as nicely. He’s allowed greater than 4 runs in only one outing, and that was an outlier.

Then, whereas some Mariners hitters have had success towards Montas in a small pattern, they’ve but to face him throughout this breakout season. What’s extra, three of probably the most profitable have been Mitch Haniger (.333 common), Ryon Healy (.333 common) and Dee Gordon (.667 common). Haniger and Healy presently reside on the injured record, whereas Gordon is way more liable to pelt Montas with a single or two slightly than an enormous hit. Montas can be doing a superb job limiting the harm general when it comes to exhausting contact, yielding a powerful 87.5 mph common exit velocity on batted balls, together with a minuscule 3.Three p.c barrel fee. That’s helped result in a stingy 0.7 HR/9, with all of these aforementioned numbers facilitated by a fastball that’s been averaging just below 97 mph.

Lastly, take into account the Coliseum’s favorable dimensions when evaluating Montas. The Athletics’ house park checked into Friday’s motion with the third-lowest run issue (0.778) and ninth-lowest home-run issue (0.823) within the Majors.

Different pitchers to think about: Jake Odorizzi (vs. KCR), Walker Buehler (vs. CHC), Mike Minor (at CIN), Sean Newcomb (vs. PHI)

Greatest Hitter

Trevor Story vs. SDP ($5.5k DraftKings, $4.7k FanDuel)

The matchup may hardly arrange higher for Story on Saturday. He attracts not solely a left-hander but in addition one towards whom he’s already had appreciable success over a modest pattern. Padres southpaw Eric Lauer has already been tagged by Story for 2 profession house runs in six plate appearances. Lauer additionally checks in permitting a .267 common and .338 wOBA to right-handed hitters on the street, together with a mammoth 51.Eight p.c hard-contact fee.

In flip, Story has crushed lefty arms for a .310 common, .351 wOBA and near-identical 51.7 p.c hard-contact fee. He additionally makes for a nasty matchup for Lauer when it comes to pitch splits. Story is an elite fastball hitter whereas Lauer depends on his four-seam greater than another pitch. Naturally, Story additionally has Coors Area on his aspect, a park the place he has a .313 common, .419 wOBA and .328 ISO general this season.

Given his hefty upside, I see Story as match for both money video games or GPPs on Saturday.

Different hitters to think about: Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon, David Dahl, Ian Desmond (all vs. SDP), Gary Sanchez, Gleyber Torres, Luke Voit, D.J. LeMahieu, Aaron Hicks (all at CWS), Paul DeJong, Yadier Molina (at NYM), Marcus Semien, Mark Canha, Khris Davis, Ramon Laureano (all vs. SEA), Asdrubal Cabrera, Elvis Andrus (at CIN), Manny Machado, Hunter Renfroe, Wil Myers, Franmil Reyes (all at COL)

Greatest Stack

MIN vs. KCR (RHP Glenn Sparkman) 

The Twins have been deadly towards right-handed pitching of their house park of Goal Area, particularly not too long ago. Minnesota got here into Friday night time’s motion with an AL-high .367 wOBA versus righties at house over the past month of play. The Twins’ 406 runs scored and +117 run differential each lead the Majors, and so they’ll draw a matchup that might proceed facilitating that kind of manufacturing Saturday. Royals starter Glenn Sparkman has respectable numbers general, however he’s struggled mightily on the street over a small pattern. Sparkman owns an 8.22 ERA, .333 BAA, and .374 wOBA throughout a 37-batter pattern on the street to this point.

Sparkman has notably had bother towards lefty bats. He’s yielded a .292 common, .358 wOBA, 5.71 xFIP, and 48.2 p.c hard-contact fee to that handedness. That makes the likes of Eddie Rosario, Jorge Polanco, and Max Kepler particularly enticing. Then, Sparkman has additionally allowed a .333 common and .336 wOBA to the 36 right-handed bats he’s confronted when touring. Due to this fact, Mitch Garver, Jonathan Schoop, C.J. Cron, and Nelson Cruz may actually be viable as nicely.

Different stacks to think about: Rockies (vs. SDP), Athletics (vs. SEA), Yankees (vs. CWS)


Three Down for June 15, 2019

Pitcher To Fade

Reynaldo Lopez vs. NYY ($5k DraftKings, $6.2k FanDuel) 

Lopez put collectively a powerful outing towards the Royals his final day trip. He held Kansas Metropolis to 1 earned run over six innings and recorded eight strikeouts. Nonetheless, that caliber of outing has been extra the exception than the rule. Previous to that begin, Lopez had surrendered between 5 and eight earned runs in his three earlier journeys to the mound. He additionally has two different outings this season giving up six and eight earned runs.

Lopez has a 5.52 ERA, .275 common, and .367 wOBA allowed throughout 45.2 house innings. He’s additionally given up 12 of his 18 homers on the season at Assured Charge Area and has been tagged for .350-plus wOBAs by each side of the plate there. The Yankees make for a very unhealthy matchup for him, contemplating they carry succesful bats like Gary Sanchez, D.J. LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, Aaron Hicks, Brett Gardner, and Didi Gregorius to the desk.

Given his general observe file this season and the actual fact the Yankees personal a .362 wOBA towards righties on the street over the past month of play, I see Lopez as a fade on Saturday.

Hitter To Fade

Hunter Pence at CIN ($5.4k DraftKings, $4k FanDuel)

Pence is having fun with a resurgent season to this point in 2019. Nonetheless, Saturday doesn’t precisely arrange as the perfect matchup for him. Reds starter Tanner Roark has held Pence hitless in seven profession encounters and recorded three strikeouts towards him. Roark has additionally been at his finest in same-handed matchups this season. The veteran has held right-handed bats to a .229 common and .249 wOBA (together with .230 at house). He’s yielded only one house run to the 164 hitters of that handedness he’s confronted.

Pence has been superb towards right-handed pitching, particularly on the street. However Roark has made right-handed hitters work for any impactful hits by yielding simply seven of the extra-base selection. Due to this fact, whereas Pence might get on a couple of times, the numbers overwhelmingly level to that coming by way of a single or stroll.

Given his value and the decreased alternative for fulfillment whereas Roark is within the contest, I’d pattern towards fading Pence on Saturday.

Stack To Fade

Royals at MIN (RHP Jake Odorizzi) 

In addition to the Twins form up as a possible stack Saturday, the Royals’ outlook is decidedly depressed on the opposite aspect. Jake Odorizzi has been practically unhittable at house this season. He checks into Saturday’s matchup with a 1.24 ERA, .171 BAA, and .206 wOBA throughout 36.1 house frames, and he sports activities an elite 96.Eight p.c strand fee at Goal Area. He’s additionally loved success towards present Royals up to now. KC hitters personal a collective .221/.277/.403 line towards Odorizzi over a complete of 77 profession at-bats.

The Royals have been scuffling towards right-handed pitching on the street over the past month particularly. Kansas Metropolis owns a .290 wOBA and -8.Eight wRAA towards righties outdoors of Kauffman Stadium throughout that stretch, together with a 23.Three p.c strikeout fee. Then, it’s price noting how efficient Odorizzi has been towards right-handed hitters at Goal, holding that handedness to a .108 common and .152 wOBA over a 68-batter pattern. That notably helps scale back the probabilities of success of Martin Maldonado, Whit Merrifield, Cheslor Cuthbert, and Jorge Soler.

Provided that Odorizzi has allowed solely 4 earned runs since April 29, I see Kansas Metropolis as a really robust fade candidate Saturday.
