It’s a busy Sunday for yours truly.  First, I have a dance recital for my youngest daughter.  Then I have memorial services for two separate friends of mine that passed away recently.  Both in their early 30s – really quite sad.  Be sure to hug your loved ones because life is short and can be taken at any time.

Here are your quick hits of the day:

Batter versus Pitcher Warriors:

  1. Brian McCann vs. Jake Odorizzi – 12/20 4 homers 3 doubles and 2 walks
  2. Kelby Tomlinson vs. Chris Rusin – 5/10  two doubles a homer and a walk
  3. Travis Shaw vs, RA Dickey – 4/10 with 2 doubles, two homer, and two walks
  4. Jay Bruce vs. Jimmy Nelson – 7/17 with 3 doubles 2 homers and a walk

Stacks to Target:

  1. Pirates vs. Martin Perez – Pittsburgh is 2nd in the majors in OPS versus lefties at .827.  Texas is a hitter’s paradise and Perez is a soft tossing lefty.  Target this one.
  2. Angels vs. Doug Fister – The Angels bats have been coming alive, and Fister is allowing a career high 29.5% hard contact.  He doesn’t fool guys with his K/9 under 5.

Weather Factors to Target or Avoid:

  • Phillies at Cubs – 12 MPH wind blowing out
  • Pirates at Rangers – rain chance

Pitchers of the Day:

  1. Edinson Volquez vs. White Sox –  The Pale Hose only hit .219/.270/.338 versus Volquez.  This is a GPP play only as Volquez faces off against Chris Sale and will be hard pressed to get a victory.
  2. John Lackey vs. Phillies – Philly is only 27th in MLB in OPS versus righties.  Lackey should get it done.

NOTE: Kershaw and Sale are on the mound today in pretty good match-ups.  If you want to pay up for pitching or are playing cash games, that is obviously the way to go.

Platoon Split Hitters:

  1. David Freese vs. Martin Perez – .403 wOBA and 158 wRC+ versus lefties
  2. Francisco Cervelli vs. Martin Perez – .350 wOBA and 122 wRC+ versus lefties
