Hi Everyone! It was another solid day yesterday as we cashed in both our GPP’s & 50/50’s with a solid 177-point performance last night. Let’s get the weekend off the right note as we take a look at the 9-game “Main” slate that starts at 7:05pm tonight.
As we’ve mentioned throughout the week, we need to pay extra attention to the “confirmed lineups” as the majority of the MLB playoff races have been determined. In this slate, the only two teams that are still playing for something will be the Brewers & Rockies, so I can imagine we see some unique lineups from the other teams.
On the mound tonight, we’re going to with the Brewers Wade Miley (P) who comes in at solid price with a plus match-up against the Detroit Tigers. Miley has been unbelievable for the Brewers this season as over his 15 starts, the veteran left-hander has posted a 2.32 ERA & 1.18 WHIP. Miley is holding his opponents to a .230 batting average/.619 OPS on the season and faces a Detroit team that ranks just 24th in MLB in team batting average on the road (.235). We can’t count on Miley getting a ton of strikeouts as he has just a 5.6 K/9 ratio on the season, however, Miley has allowed just 3 HR’s on the season and if he can get through 6 innings without much damage, I think he can hit value with a 35-40 point night.
With the money we’re saving on Miley, we’re able to put in a solid 4-man stack of Milwaukee Brewers in Jesus Aguilar (C/1B), Jonathan Schoop (2B), Lorenzo Cain (OF), and Ryan Braun (OF) in their match-up against the LHP Daniel Norris of the Detroit Tigers. Norris has made seven starts on the season and it hasn’t gone that well as he comes into this game with just a 5.22 ERA & 1.44 WHIP. Norris is allowing his opponents to post a .777 OPS on the season and has a 1.6 HR/9 ratio on the season. Aguilar comes into this game hitting .274 on the season and has shown some great power this season as he has 34 HR’s & 105 RBI’s. Agular has posted a .944 OPS vs. LHP on the season and is hitting .316 in interleague play. Schoop is hitting just .232 on the season, however, we all know that he does have some decent power as he has 21 HR’s & 60 RBI’s n the year. Schoop is hitting just .198 since joining the Brewers, however, is 3 for 4 agianst Norris in his career. Cain has been incredible this season as he comes into this game with a .310 average with 10 HR’s, 37 RBI’s, & 30 SB’s. Cain has posted a 1.013 OPS vs. LHP on the season and is 4 for 12 lifetime against Norris in his career. Braun is hitting just .254 on the season, however, has shown some decent power as he has 20 HR’s & 61 RBI’s on the season. Braun has been on fire down the stretch for the Brewers as over the past week, he is hitting .368 with 5 HR’s.
We have a 2-man stack of Arizona Diamondbacks in Eduardo Escobar (3B) and David Peralta (OF) in their match-up agianst the San Diego Padres RHP Jacob Nix. Nix has had a couple of decent starts, but the overall body of work hasn’t been very impressive as he comes into this game with a 6.81 ERA & 1.49 WHIP on the season. Nix is allowing his opponents to post a .303 average/.899 OPS agianst him on the season and struggled in his previous start agianst the Diamondbacks (0.2 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 1 HR, 2 BB). Escobar comes into this game with a .271 average with 23 HR’s & 84 RBI’s. The switch-hitting Escobar has posted a .842 OPS vs. RHP and has crushed San Diego to the tune of a .406 average (13-32). Peralta is having a career season as he comes into this game with a .295 average with 30 HR’s & 87 RBI’s. Peralta is hitting .321 with a .955 OPS vs. RHP on the season and hit a HR against Nix is only AB against him.
Completing the infield tonight, will be Seattle’s Jean Segura (SS) who has a nice match-up against the RHP Adrian Sampson of the Texas Rangers. Sampson comes into this game with a 4.96 ERA & 1.29 WHIP and is coming off a rough start agianst the Angels in which he gave up 4 ER’s (3 HR’s) in 5.1 IP. Sampson has allowed a HR in each of his 4 appearances this season and is allowing opponents to post a .905 OPS against him. Segura comes into this game with a .301 average with 10 HR’s, 62 RBI’s & 20 SB’s. Segura has posted a .296 average vs. RHP and has posted a .295 average vs. Texas on the season.
Rounding out the team tonight, we’re paying up for the Angels Mike Trout (Utility) in his match-up agianst the RHP Trevor Cahill of the Oakland Athletics. Cahill comes into this game with a respectable 3.91 ERA & 1.22 WHIP however, has really struggled as of late as over his last two starts, he has allowed 6 ER’s over just 6.0 IP. Cahill has been terrible on the road this season, posting a 7.02 ERA and struggled against the Angels earlier this season, as he allowed 4 ER’s over just 4.2 IP. Mike Trout is having another MVP type season as he comes into the final weekend of the season with a .315 average with 39 HR’s, 79 RBI’s, & 24 SB. Trout is hitting .358 with 5 HR’s agianst Oakland on the season and has posted a .322 average/1.13 OPS vs. RHP on the season.
