Back again today with some picks. I cash-bubbled the last 2 events I played in earlier in the week and needed a few days off so I could re-load the bankroll and try again tonight. Should be a solid night of action, there are some excellent matchups and here are my batter picks for the night. Good luck.
Russell Martin (PIT) vs Shelby Miller (STL)
During his career 9 AB’s he has 4 hits, 2 HR’s and 3 RBI’s
Ryan Doumit (ATL) vs Homer Bailey (CIN)
Doumit is batting .500 in 16 career AB’s with 3 doubles, 1 HR, and 2 walks.
Mark Reynolds (MIL) vs Carlos Villanueva (CHC)
Solid numbers, he has 5 hits in 16 AB’s with 2 HR’s, 4 RBI’s and 3 walks.
David Ortiz (BOS) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
In a whopping 73 career AB’s, Big Pappi has 24 hits, 9 doubles, 3 HR’s and 13 RBI’s.
Dustin Pedroia (BOS) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
If you don’t like Ortiz, Dustin has 12 hits in 33 AB’s with 3 doubles.
Eric Sogard (OAK) vs Brad Peacock (HOU)
Only 9 career AB’s but he has 4 hits with 1 double and 2 triples.
Ian Stewart (LAA) vs Hiroki Kuroda (NYY)
Make sure he’s in the lineup, but in 13 career AB’s with 6 hits, 4 RBI’s and 2 walks, I’d expect him to be out there tonight.
Aramis Ramirez (MIL) vs Carlos Villanueva (CHC)
In 8 career AB’s he has 4 hits, 3 doubles, and 5 walks.
Josh Rutledge (COL) vs Josh Beckett (LAD)
This guy just got called up a while back, so make sure he’s in the lineup, but in 6 career AB’s he has 4 hits, 2 doubles and 1 RBI.
CoCo Crisp (OAK) vs Brad Peacock (HOU)
In 10 career AB’s he has 4 hits – all for extra bases – 2 doubles, 1 triple, and 1 HR. He also has 2 walks.
Torii Hunter (DET) vs Kevin Correia (MIN)
In 10 AB’s he has 6 hits, 1 double and 3 RBI’s
