 Thad's MLB By The Numbers - 8/18

Toronto @ New York Yankees

Vegas Line: NYY -260, O/U: 8.5

Sean Reid-Foley vs Luis Severino 

Reid-Foley: Aaron Sanchez continues to nurse a finger injury, so Reid-Foley (13.6 K%, 13.6 BB%, 37.5 GB%, 62.5 HC%) will get another turn in the rotation. He gave up three earned runs to Kansas City the last time he took the mound (5.0 innings) and isn’t worth the risk today when he takes on the Yankees (ranked 4th in wRC* versus right-handed pitching, 22.5 K% versus right-handed pitching).

GUARDS

Simone Augustus @ $5.0K on FD/5.5K on DK is trying to establish some degree of low-level consistency at the end of the season, but she doesn’t have much time left. She has 21.6, 24.4 and 20.7 fantasy points in three of her last four games, however, she’s had a tough time sustaining long-term fantasy value. View her as a form of salary relief in tournaments while she’s producing.

  • Vegas Line: BOS -180, O/U: 9
  • Nathan Eovaldi vs Dylan Bundy                 

Eovaldi: Eovaldi (22.6 K%, 3.3 BB%, 44.3 GB%, 33.2 HC%) really likes wearing a Boston uniform. He’s pitched to consecutive shutouts since he joined the Red Sox (15 innings). There’s a chance that streak going today against Baltimore (ranked 24th in wRC+ versus right-handed pitching, 24.0 K% versus right-handed pitching)

Orioles Bats: Jonathan Villar, Tim Beckham

Bundy: Bundy (25.2 K%, 7.2 BB%, 35.2 GB%, 35.1 HC%) pitched well in his last start, surrendering only 1 ER to Texas (6.0 innings). Tonight, he gets a potent Red Sox lineup, so if you didn’t use him the last time he took the mound you’re probably out of luck (BOS ranked 1st in wRC+ versus right-handed pitching, 18.7 K% versus right-handed pitching).

RedSox Bats: J.D. Martinez, M. Betts
