Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are up against Indians pitcher Adam Plutko , who will be making his second start of the year tonight. There aren’t a ton of stats behind him, but a quick glance can show you he is a fly ball pitcher, which can lead to some issues for him tonight. With a profile like that, we want to load up on the power bats from the Cubs, specifically the lefties. Kyle Schwarber is a name who will be very popular tonight, as he comes in with a .283 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season. That will line up nicely against Plutko, and should put him on home run watch tonight. Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant are the obvious plays for the Cubs but look to Willson Contreras , who is also solid vs right-handed pitchers, along with Ian Happ , who has a .294 ISO vs RHP.


New York Yankees

The Yankees are most likely going to be the most popular stack on the slate since they come in with an implied run total sitting at 5.53. As always with the Yankees, it really comes down to the salary you have available, and how many of them you are able to roster. Last night Gary Sánchez left the game early with leg cramps, so if he isn’t in the lineup today, Austin Romine will likely get the start, offering some much-needed salary relief. They are up against Doug Fister , who is giving up a .395 wOBA to right-handed hitters this season, along with 1.74 HR/9 to righties. Those are some rough numbers, and with this very favorable hitter’s park, we should see the Yankees continue their recent home run trend. Didi Gregorius has some solid numbers overall vs right-handed pitchers this season, but we all know he is seriously struggling right now. The power upside is there, but the consistency is not, so just know there is some risk if you roster him. Aaron Judge , Giancarlo Stanton , and Gleyber Torres are the most expensive hitters for the Yankees, and if you can afford them, you should be locking them into your lineups. If you don’t have the salary available, look to Neil Walker or Miguel Andujar .


Seattle Mariners

The Mariners are up against Daniel Gossett tonight, who has a very limited sample size, so let’s look back to last year for some numbers. Last season Gossett gave up a .383 wOBA to lefties with 1.42 HR/9. He gave up a .378 wOBA to righties with 2.53 HR/9. Not sure what else to say about those numbers, but oh boy, those are rough. Now, this isn’t the best hitter’s park, but with some of the Mariners players being so cheap, they will allow you to get up to the bigger bats and high-end pitchers. Jean Segura and Kyle Seager should be at the top of the list, but there are some cheaper options with upside. Ryon Healy is too cheap for his .226 ISO vs right-handed pitchers this season, along with Mike Zunino , Dan Vogelbach, and Ben Gamel who offer a bit of salary relief.
