This preview will help you get a better understanding of the slate, so let’s jump right in.

  • Yankees Offense: Averaging 5.16 runs/game, strong against RHP with a .339 wOBA.
  • Red Sox Offense: Averaging 3.84 runs/game, solid against RHP with a .337 wOBA.

Cole has been dominant, but the Yankees’ lineup has been inconsistent. The Red Sox will have a tough time against Cole, but Winckowski’s high groundball rate could keep the game close.

  • Astros Offense: Averaging 3.65 runs/game, slightly lower production against RHP with a .325 wOBA.

Ryan’s elite strikeout rate gives the Twins an edge, but Brown’s ability to generate ground balls could suppress the Twins’ offense. This game could be a low-scoring affair.
