Kyle Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies

  • More than 7.5 Fantasy Score

We are going all in on the Phillies lefties here against Chris Bassitt and with Schwarber leading off he can set the tone early. Notorious for hitting leadoff homers, Bassitt is allowing 3.1 HR/9 innings to lefties this season. 

Schwarber has gone over this 7.5 fantasy score projection in three of the last four games which includes each of the last two contests. Let's lock in Schwarber and hope he leads the game off with a bang!

Chris Bassitt, Toronto Blue Jays

  • Lower than 17.5 Outs

If you've paid attention to anything I've said about Chris Bassitt this season then it should come as no surprise that I am going to take the lower side of his fantasy points projection here today against the Phillies lineup that is loaded with left-handed bats.  

If you are new to the program, let me throw some stats at you. Against left-handed hitters this season, Bassitt is allowing a .472 wOBA, .631 slugging percentage and a .354 batting average. He's has a 27.8% HR/FB rate against lefties while allowing 3.1 HR/9. 

These aren't new struggles either, lefties have hit Bassitt hard for a few years now and today he faces Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, Bryston Stott and Brandon Marsh. The former two are the ones Bassitt should worry about but the latter two are also having themselves a solid start to their individual seasons as well. 

I just don't see how Bassitt lasts long enough in this game to reach 17.5 outs.


Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies

  • More than 8.5 Fantasy Score

The books aren't fools here either. If you check out Harper's projections, you will see that the odds on most of them are not great and while I would normally play his Hits+Runs+RBI projection, I'm settling for the fantasy score instead.

Harper has finished with more than 8.5 fantasy points in four straight games, thanks to homering in all three contests. He also has multi-hits in each of the last two games.

This matchup is just in the wheelhouse for Harper here and I'd be willing to even bet on him hitting a homer for the fourth straight day.
