What Can Braun Do for You?

With the highest career wOBA against LHP of any active player, it’s no wonder Ryan Braun warrants consideration against Patrick Corbin. Here are my picks for Friday, July 24:

Evan Gattis, $7,200 Ben Paulsen, $6,000 Patrick Corbin, $11,600
Brock Holt, $6,000 Ryan Raburn, $4,200 Chris Tillman, $11,400

preferred-play

Preferred Stacks: Reds, Rockies, Red Sox, Angels, Yankees, Tigers, Astros and Rangers

Secondary/Contrarian Stacks: Cardinals, Diamondbacks, Brewrs, Athletics and Giants

Weather Concerns: Unfortunately CIN/COL looks like the game with the greatest risk tonight although the probability of postponement remains low. There are lesser concerns in the DET/BOS game as short delays seem like the worst case scenario.

Note: I will update the quick picks throughout the course of the day and adjust picks according to who is in/out of lineups.

Bonus: There wasn’t enough room in the tables above but Albert Pujols certainly warrants consideration against Colby Lewis. Also Scott Van Slyke is a nice cheap option hitting fourth for the Dodgers and Ichiro Suzuki is as well leading off against Andrew Cashner.
