Pick of the day: Mike Trout
Pitching for the Royals is Will Smith who has a 7.97 ERA through 4 starts this season. In his previous start, he allowed 8 hits through 6.1 innings. Will Smith has a BAA of .340 vs Right Handed Batters. As stellar as Mike Trout has been this season, this makes him a great pick. Mike Trout has a BA of .356 vs Left Handed Pitchers, a BA of .356 at home, and a BA of .372 at Night. I strongly believe he will get a hit.
Pick 2: Paul Konerko
Pitching for the Twins is Cole De Vries who has a 3.95 ERA this season.
In his previous start, he allowed 5 hits through 6 innings giving up 1 earned run. Strong pitcher, why would we pick someone to get a hit against him? In Konerko’s career vs De Vries (3 ABs), he is 2/3 with a HR. Also De Vries has a .296 BAA vs Right Handed Batters. Paul Konerko has a BA of .344 vs Right Handed Pitchers. Also Konerko has a BA of .389 against the Twins this season. Konerko is a solid pick for tomorrow.
