Flaherty-(13)4IP, 4 S/O, 4ER
Simmons(13) 2 1B, 2 RBI
Trout- (22.2)1B/D/BB/R/2 RBI
Hope you all had a great first week in MLB. We have a long path ahead of us. Lets start with Monday’s 13 Game Slate
P – Mike Clevinger
In his 3 games vs the White Sox last year, Clevinger dominated. There is simply no other way to put it. In 20.4IP He gave up 3 Runs (1 per game) and 28 strike outs. Fit him into your roster in all formats.
2B – Rougned Odor
In his career vs Peacock, Odor holds nothing back. He stands 7-12(.583) with 2 doubles and 2 Homers. He hasnt really hit the start button for the 2019 season thus far and this would be a good opportunity to gwt things going against an inner state rival.
1B- Josh Bell
The Pirates will host the Redbirds, their divisional rivals for a 3 game stretch. Bell has succeeded in the past and has another opportunity today. He will square off with Adam Wainwright who isn’t exactly in his prime. Bell is batting .500 (5-10) a Double and a Home Run to go with 3 RBI’s.
OF – Christian Yellich
The raining MVP picked up right where he left off last year. The guy makes it look effortless. Traveling to Cincinnati shouldnt change much of anything. Versus Roark, Yelich is 6-12 (.500BA) with a pair each of Doubles & Home Runs. He is an on base prescence no matter which way you slic the pie.
OF – Mike Trout
This matchup should be a fun one to watch. They have aeen eachother quite often and there isnt much variation to what happens. Trout crushes it nearly every time. In over 80 at bats Trout has amassed 4Doubles, 2 Triples, 8 Home Runs with a .373 Batting Average. His wOBA is sitting at .485 with an ISO .386. He is a little pricey but i dont think you can afford not to draft him a few times.
Good Luck Today Everyone!
