We have a nice four game slate this afternoon kicking off at 12:35pm ET. 

News and Notes

The Dodgers are heavy favorites this morning against the Pirates. LA is sending Julio Urias to the mound against a Pirates team that ranks in the bottom three against LHP in wOBA, Average and OPS. 

The Dodgers offense is also going to be pretty popular today as the Pirates are sending Mitch Keller to the mound. Keller this season is 3-6 with a 6.65 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP. He has been miserable at home, posting a 7.96 ERA over seven starts this season.

Lefties are hitting .310 with an OPS of .937 off Keller this season which means the likes of Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger, Matt Beaty, Zack McKinstry and Gavin Lux are all in play as the Dodgers load their lineup with left-handed bats.

It is also hard not to love Brewers today. Sure, Luis Castillo looked good in his last outing but those have been few and far between this season and not all the struggles can be blamed due to the home ballpark, even though he is 1-4 with a 6.07 ERA at home this season. 

Both lefties and righties are tagging Castillo at a pretty even clip with LHH owning a .310 average and an OPS of .860 while RHH are hitting .297 with an OPS of .852.

The Brewers lineup today does leave a bit to be desired but that just means there is some value to put around Christian Yelich today if going that route in a stack.
