Probables Chart

Tonight’s slate is chocked full of pitchers with unbecoming platoon splits. Carlos Martinez hasn’t been able to get left handed batters out. The Dodgers’ offense doesn’t feature a ton of left handed power, considering Andre Ethier’s struggles, but they’ve still hit right handed pitching very well.

Chris Tillman, Chris Young, Brad Peacock, Anthony DeSclafani, Nick Tepesch, and R.A. Dickey have also struggled pretty mightily versus left handed pitching since 2013. Trevor Bauer has too, but it’s a rather small sample size. Nonetheless, he’s facing a left handed heavy lineup tonight in Seattle. DeSclafani is my favorite target in this group. He doesn’t miss a ton of bats. And he’s facing one of the best offenses in the league.

Young has beaten his peripherals for quite some time, but it’s hard to ignore his struggles to both sides of the plate. Vidal Nuno and John Danks also struggle versus almost any batter, handedness be damned. I’ll forever bet against Nuno – it’s a flaw/bias, at this point. Boston’s offense hasn’t been anything close to what they had hoped, but there are still some decent options in their lineup.

Lastly, Tyler Matzek, an unproven lefty with a history of command issues, is facing a right handed heavy Milwaukee Brewers club that has hit the seventh most home runs versus left handed pitching this season. I love the idea of stacking against Matzek.

The Daily Five 

Brewers stack

Carlos Gomez – $8,204
Aramis Ramirez – $6,700
Khris Davis – $6,446

As I mentioned above, I’m not enamored with Matzek, especially in Miller Park.

Mike Napoli – $6,111

Love Napoli versus left handed pitching, always will.

Jake Odorizzi – $14,777

Camden Yards can get pitchers into trouble, but the way the prices are tonight, we don’t have a ton of cheap-ish options. Odorizzi’s high strikeout totals should give us a pretty decent floor.

have odorizzi in my lineup tonight, but very skeptical of starting him…camden is a tough place to pitch, he is awful on the road this year, and adam jones is .375 with a homer in 8 ab’s against him…
