A gross MLB slate tomorrow features 11 game all day slate, a 5 game featured, and also 5 games in the morning. Dylan Bundy ($9,100) faces a right handed heavy Tigers team, who just lost Miguel Cabrera for a few days. Bundy owns a .238 wOBA vs. righties, which is pretty good. The Tigers strike out 22.5% of the time, which is in the top 10 in the league. On a bad I’m turning to Bundy as my SP1.
Tanner Roark ($8,900) is a safe option facing the Pirates in PNC Park. The Pirates aren’t a good offense owning a 80 wRC+ and a .294 team wOBA. The only problem with this matchup is the Pirates don’t strikeout a ton. If you want to look for a pitcher with upside, Ervin Santana ($7,400) has been very good this season, and the Rockies strikeout the 5th most in the MLB at 23.3%.
I’m going right back to the Orioles today. And while they sort of did disappoint yesterday, they get to face Jordan Zimmerman. Zimmerman is complete trash this season, holding a .406 wOBA vs. righties and .385 vs lefties. This could get ugly quick, and the Tigers have nobody to stop the bleeding. Everyone is in play.
Tyler Glasnow vs. the Nationals today, time to hop back on the Nats. This is a great spot for both sides of the plate. Glasnow has a .425 wOBA vs. lefties and .412 vs. righties. He allows way too many baserunners by walking them, and he can’t get them out when the put it in play. The park is not great, but it won’t matter if Harper or these other big bats get a hold of one. Harper and Murphy are my favorite plays, but Rendon, Zimmerman and Wieters also find themselves in great spots.
