Decided to do things a little different today now that the season is in full swing. I’ve identified players at all major positions. Let me know if you like this format better. Good luck!
Buster Posey (SF) vs Eric Stults (SD)
You’ll want to make sure Posey is playing since he took last night off with a minor injury. In his career he’s 7-15 with 1 HR and 3 walks vs Sutlts.
Carlos Santana (CLE) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
Solid numbers for Carlos, he’s 6 for 15 vs Mark with 2 doubles, 1 HR and 1 walk.
James Loney (TB) vs Ivan Nova (NYY)
No power numbers but he’s 6-10 with 3 walks vs Nova in his career.
Joey Votto (CIN) vs Edwin Jackson (CHC)
Joey’s a solid option almost any night, but he’s 6-16 with 2 HR’s vs Jackson in his career.
Nick Swisher (CLE) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
I almost dropped Swisher in my season long leagues but he came through last night with a few hits. He’s 11-27 in his career vs Mark with 8 walks.
Robinson Cano (SEA) vs Henderson Alvarez (MIA)
Another guy that’s good just about every night, but he’s 6-11 with 3 doubles, 2 HR’s and 1 walk vs Alvarez in his career.
Rickie Weeks (MIL) vs Wandy Rodriguez (PIT)
Massive history between these two. In 46 career AB’s Weeks has 14 hits, 3 doubles, 2 HR’s and 8 walks.
Pablo Sandoval (SF) vs Eric Stults (SD)
The Panda has been hot/cold this year, but has a chance to shine today. He’s 12-22 in his career with 3 doubles, 1 triple and 3 walks vs Eric.
Trevor Plouffe (MIN) vs Bruce Chen (KC)
In 24 career AB’s he has 8 hits, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 3 HR’s and 1 walk vs Chen.
Aramis Ramirez (MIL) vs Wandy Rodriguez (PIT)
Major history here. In 57 career AB’s Ramirez has 21 hits, 2 HR’s, 3 doubles, 1 triple and 1 walk.
Chris Owings (ARI) vs Dan Haren (LAD)
Only 6 career AB’s but he has 4 hits with a double.
Mike Aviles (CLE) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
Make sure Mike is starting, but in 37 career AB’s he has 10 hits with 3 walks.
Ryan Braun (MIL) vs Wandy Rodriguez (PIT)
While the numbers are juice enhanced, he’s 18-47 with 4 HR’s and 8 doubles against Wandy.
Jason Kubel (MIN) vs Bruce Chen (KC)
In 16 career AB’s he has 7 hits with 2 doubles, 1 triple and 1 HR.
Jacoby Ellsbury (NYY) vs Chris Archer (TB)
No big power numbers but in 7 AB’s he has 6 hits with 2 walks, which means he’s seeing the ball great out of Archer’s hands.
