There is a great mix of early & late games on the MLB schedule today, and I’ve tried to mix in (and make note) of the early games, just in case you are an early riser and want to get in on the action.
Buster Posey (SF) vs Julio Teheran (ATL)
Sometimes you need to blank out what happened yesterday with a player, as Posey went 0-4 and was a big reason why I didn’t cash, but he’s still got good history off Teheran and the Braves. In 6 AB’s he has 4 hits, 1 HR and 4 RBI’s.
Derek Norris (OAK) vs Jon Lester (BOS) EARLY GAME
Not many catchers have history tonight, but Norris has 4 AB’s with 1 hit being a HR and 2 walks.
David Ortiz (BOS) vs Tommy Milone (OAK) EARLY GAME
In only 2 AB’s Ortiz has 2 hits, but both are HR’s.
Billy Butler (KC) vs Drew Smyly (DET)
In 6 AB’s Butler has 5 hits with 1 double.
Brandon Belt (SF) vs Julio Teheran (ATL)
In 6 AB’s Belt has 4 hits with 1 double.
Brandon Phillips (CIN) vs Yovani Gallardo (MIL)
In 51 career AB’s he has 16 hits, 3 doubles, 2 HR’s and 7 RBI’s off Yovani.
Josh Harrison (PIT) vs R.A. Dickey (TOR)
In 14 career AB’s he has 6 hits, 1 double, 1 triple and 1 walk off the knuckleballer.
Chris Getz (TOR) vs Francisco Liriano (PIT)
Make sure he’s in the lineup, but in 10 AB’s he has 4 hits with 1 RBI.
Brian Dozier (MIN) vs Wei-Yin Chen (BAL) EARLY GAME
In 5 career AB’s he has 2 hits.
Aramis Ramirez (MIL) vs Johnny Cueto (CIN)
In 39 career AB’s he has 13 hits, 4 doubles, 4 HR’s and 6 walks off Cueto.
Miguel Cabrera (DET) vs Danny Duffy (KC)
In 13 career AB’s Miggy has 4 hits, 2 doubles and 4 walks off Duffy.
Matt Dominguez (HOU) vs Hisashi Iwakuma (SEA) EARLY GAME
In 11 career AB’s he has 4 hits.
J.J. Hardy (BAL) vs Kevin Correia (MIN) EARLY GAME
In 11 career AB’s he has 4 hits, 1 double and 3 RBI’s
Elvis Andrus (TEX) vs Garrett Richards (LAA)
In 15 AB’s he has 5 hits with 1 walk and 3 stolen bases.
Reed Johnson (MIA) vs Paul Maholm (LAD)
Make sure Reed’s in but in 15 AB’s he has 8 hits with 3 doubles, so I expect he will be.
Ryan Ludwick (CIN) vs Yovani Gallardo (MIL)
In 26 career AB’s he has 9 hits, 1 double, 3 HR’s and 6 walks off Yovani.
Jay Bruce (CIN) vs Yovani Gallardo (MIL)
Another Red OF – in 39 career AB’s he has 14 hits, 3 doubles, 2 HR’s and 9 RBIs
