Matchups

Yadier Molina is 7/12 with 1 HR and 4 RBI vs Tyler Mahle.  Molina comes in 8/28 over the last 7 days.  He has an OPS of .835 lifetime with 26 doubles and 15 HR at Great American Ballpark – one of the away parks where he feels at home.

DJ LeMahieu is 7/19 lifetime vs Charlie Morton.  Prior to being sent to the IL DJ was crushing the ball and in his first 4 games back he’s kept that with multi-hit games in 3 out of 4 and a 2 homer game yesterday.  He’s hitting over .400 at home and against RHP.

Trea Turner is 9/22 with 1 double and 1 HR vs Zack Wheeler.  Trea is one of the best hitters in baseball over the last week with a 16/27 clip.  He’s seeing the ball very well right now and historically picks it up well out of Wheelers hand so it looks good for Turner today.

Christian Walker is 6/13 with 4 HR and 7 RBI vs Clayton Kershaw.  Walker comes in 7/19 over the last week with 2 HR and 9 RBI and he mashes at Dodger Stadium in 11 games he’s 11/26 with a 1.346 OPS.

Nelson Cruz is 5/10 with 2 doubles and 1 HR vs Reynaldo Lopez.  Lopez has not pitched well this year and Cruz is one of the best hitters this year (top 10), throw in a favorable matchup and Cruz should have a big game. 

I also like…

Eloy vs Berrios 6/15 1 double 1 HR 3 RBI

Adam Frazier vs Hendricks 7/16 2 Doubles 1 HR

Polanco vs Hendricks 10/29 2 Doubles 2 HR 4 RBI.  Coming off a brutal road trip, he comes back home where he can get back on track and he gets a favorable matchup.

Hosmer vs Teheran 4/11 2 HR
