New York Yankees vs Alex Cobb

The early slate today has just five games today so player ownerships are going to be high but I doubt we will see a team with higher owned players than the Yankees today.  New York faces off against Baltimore righty Alex Cobb who is 2-14 with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.  As a member of the Rays, Cobb struggled against the Yankees, posting a 6.64 ERA over four starts dating back to 2015.  New York also ranks second in runs, second in home runs, eighth in average and fourth in OPS against right-handed pitching this season.

Cleveland Indians vs Adalberto Mejia

Mejia has actually been OK this season, posting a 3.65 ERA over 12.1 innings this season which includes two starts and one bullpen appearance for the Twins.  The southpaw will have a real tough test in front of him today as he faces off against a powerful Indians lineup.  Cleveland ranks fifth in runs scored, first in batting average and third in OPS against left-handed pitching this season.  In his small sample size, Mejia is allowing right-handed batters to hit .342 with an OPS of .830 over 38 at bats while he has held lefties to a .182 average and an OPS of .364 over 11 at bats.  This means the Indians right-handed hitters should be in for a big day.

Contrarian Stack

Seattle Mariners vs Dallas Keuchel

Keuchel has faced the Mariners twice this season and is 0-2 with a 5.52 ERA having allowed nine runs on 13 hits over 14.2 innings. In Keuchel’s last start against Seattle he allowed seven runs over six innings of work.  For the first time in a while Keuchel has actually pitched better on the road than at home this season but Seattle has some guys who can do series damage against left-handed pitching.  Most notably Nelson Cruz who is 12-for-36 (.333) with four home runs and an OPS of 1.126 off Keuchel over his career.
