While Matt Moore has shown reverse splits in his career, that doesn’t change the fact that he’s not very good. I’m looking to capitalize on that with Alex Bregman. There are multiple options from the Astros this afternoon, but I think Bregman is the best combination of talent and price. He’s had significantly more success versus lefties in his career, and I’m hoping that trend continues.
On paper, I absolutely love this matchup for Rizzo. Giolito just can’t seem to put together the stuff that made him the #1 prospect in baseball at one point. Rizzo gets the LHH/RHP matchup I crave, along with a spot in the order that should afford him multiple opportunities to drive in runners. If this were during the week, I’d pick him for “Did He Dong?”
It should come as no surprise that I’m targeting a hitter against Joe Biagini and the Blue Jays. Biagini isn’t known for missing bats, entering today’s game with 6.6 projected K/9 from Steamer. I’ll take the guy in the two hole for the Red Sox who gets the LHH/RHP bonus. You could easily make a case for Mookie Betts here, but I’ll take the savings that Benintendi brings.
