Will update with trends once they're released.
The San Francisco Giants are playing better baseball than expected with an offense that's finding ways to score runs, so while I'm not sure who they're starting pitcher is going to be, they're worth a look with the big plus money. With that said, the Colorado Rockies are playing well in their own right and Freeland has pitched extremely well through two starts. This season, Freeland has allowed six hits and two earned runs in 12 innings and has 16 ground balls to just 14 fly balls. Current Giants have hit Freeland well through 110 at bats, but he's allowed just four homers and has 16 strikeouts, so there's reason for optimism here.
I'll take the Rockies and the RL to shave down an expensive ML price.
