Tons of rain-outs yesterday made it an interesting day.
Today I’m only posting these late games:
Evan Gattis (ATL) vs Alvarez Henderson (MIA)
With limited catchers to choose from, Gattis is probably due for a solid game and he’s 3-5 with 2 doubles off Alvarez in his career.
Freddie Freeman (ATL) vs Alvarez Henderson (MIA)
Solid numbers for Freeman who is 5 for 9 with 3 doubles, 1 HR, 5 RBI’s and 1 walk.
Billy Butler (KC) vs Mark Buehrle (TOR)
In 60 career AB’s he has 20 hits, 3 doubles and 3 HR’s with 15 RBI’s off Buehrle in his career. Plus Buehrle got roughed up in his last start.
Edwin Encarnacion (TOR) vs Jeremy Guthrie (KC)
In 30 career AB’s he has 11 hits, 4 doubles, 2 HR’s and 2 walks vs Guthrie.
Rickie Weeks (MIL) vs Homer Bailey (CIN)
Make sure he’s starting – because he normally doesn’t. But, an excellent value play if he’s in the lineup. In his career, he’s batting .500 vs Bailey. 13-26 with 2 doubles, 2 HR’s, 8 RBI’s and 5 walks. (If Weeks isn’t starting, you can go with regular Scooter Gennett who’s got solid numbers off Bailey too)
Chris Getz (TOR) vs Jeremy Guthrie (KC)
Another guy you need to make sure he’s in the starting lineup. He just got called up. In his career he has 7 hits in 12 AB’s off Guthrie with 1 double, 1 HR and 3 RBI’s.
David Wright (NYM) vs Juan Nicasio (COL)
This games in Colorado. In his career, Wright has 2 hits in 3 AB’s off Juan – both were HR’s.
Evan Longoria (TB) vs Felix Doubront (BOS)

Jose Reyes (TOR) vs Jeremy Guthrie (KC)

Zack Cozart (CIN) vs Marco Estrada (MIL)
This guy has been hot recently, and while he only has 3 hits in 13 AB’s off Marco – 2 were HR’s.
Jay Bruce (CIN) vs Marco Estrada (MIL)
