MLB Late Slate Thoughts 5/19

In MLB by devinLeave a Comment

This game features the highest team total on the slate of 4.8 for the Angels and the 2nd lowest total of 3.8 for the Royals. Obviously Tyler Skaggs is in play here. 

On the other side, Danny Duffy struggles against both sides of the plate putting all Angels in play. Keep an eye out for the final lineup and take advantage of the value that the Angels will provide. Your big names are obviously in play here but don’t sleep on some value like a David Fletcher leading off or a Kevan Smith on DK. Prioritize Angels bats.

Cal Quantrill is a decent young pitcher but is on a short leash. He has gone 5.2 and 4.1 in his two starts this year. On the other side, Joe Musgrove bounced back last game after two brutal starts. He has a ton of talent and is in play. You could play Quantrill as a punt arm as well. 

Bats wise, I like some one offs in Franmil Reyes and Josh Bell. Both have a ton of power and thus a lot of upside. I am only stacking these teams if playing multiple lineups. 

This game features a few of my top plays. I have 0 interest in Pomeranz but like Robbie Ray a ton for his upside. 

Bats wise, Ketel Marte quietly has some of the best splits in the entire league against lefties with a monster .436 wOBA and .319 ISO. He is my top play on the slate. I also like Wilmer Flores and Nick Ahmed as low owned value plays. You can do a full stack of Arizona. Tyler Austin would be the one off play I like for the Giants as he has a .279 ISO against lefties.

I don’t have much interest in either arm here. Both teams have a ton of power and there are safer arms on the slate. For bats, I like Schoop and Cron here for the Twins with a potential 6-8 value low owned stack also in play. On the flip side, Vogelbach is a monster and someone I always have interest in. You could stack him with the other power bats around him for a ton of upside.
