What you need to know for Friday’s MLB Games

By Todd Zola

  • Friday presents the usual 15-games, with all being evening affairs. It’s a frustrating slate for streaming pitchers but there are a few to consider. Spencer Strider (15% rostered in ESPN leagues) should be stretched out to work at least five frames when the Atlanta Braves host the Pittsburgh Pirates. The visitors tote the fifth lowest wOBA and strikeout rate against righthanders into the affair.

  • For the season, the Seattle Mariners have been a below average offense with a lefty on the hill, though they did manage to tally four runs in two innings against Rich Hill in Fenway Park last month. The rematch is in T-Mobile Stadium, but that’s a park upgrade for Hill (5% rostered). Look for Hill to enact a measure of revenge for the surging Red Sox, whose righty-heavy lineup should be able to score against southpaw Marco Gonzales.

  • Tylor Megill (61%) is making his return after missing a month with right biceps tendinitis. It’s always a risk starting a pitcher after a long layoff, but Megill draws a struggling Los Angeles Angels lineup which still could be without Mike Trout. The Angels fan the fourth most in the league against righthanders, so Megill should be deployed immediately, and picked up if available.
