David Peralta- OF- ARI- Idea- Peralta brings a slash line against RH pitchers of .303/.350/.564 to face Anibal Sanchez. Sanchez has a slash line of .267/.357/.564 against LH hitters and has allowed 7 homers in 24.2 IP against them. Give Peralta the advantage. Value Play- Draft Kings salary $4100
Dario Agrazal- P- PIT- Rookie- Agrazal has mixed results in his major league debut yesterday. He allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits while striking out 3 in 4 IP. Agrazal did not factor into the decision. He has been known for his control as he has worked his way up the minors and demonstrated that yesterday. Agrazal didn't walk any batters and 43 of hi 59 pitches were strikes. He posted a 3.10 ERA and 7.11 K/9 in 8 starts since being promoted to AAA Indianapolis earlier this season. Agrazal doesn't impress with raw stuff but has a tendency to induce ground balls and not give free passes. He could get more of a chance in a Pittsburgh rotation that has had injuries.
Jimmy Nelson- P- MIL- FYI- Nelson definitely did not look back to full strength in his start yesterday. He seemed to run out of gas when the 5th inning started, walking the three batters he faced on a total of 13 pitches before getting lifted. Overall, only half of his 72 pitches were for strikes. On the plus side, Nelson's first 4 IP were solid, with only 1 run allowed on 5 hits, no walks and 6 Ks. He has potential for a lot of improvement as the season continues.
Adam Jones- OF- ARI- Hot- Jones has thrived in the desert. Yesterday he hit his 13th homer of the season, only 2 shy of his total for 2018, which took him 343 more PAs. His average of .277 is one point below his career mark, but with a BABIP of .289 working against him. Jones has improved his Batting EYE from 0.26 to 0.32. His GB/FB ratio has dropped from 1.17 to 1.04. Jones has at least put a pause in age-related decline. There isn't much to indicate that he won't continue this resurgence for the rest of the season.
Jean Segura- SS- PHI- Cold- Segura has been experiencing some very bad luck this month. For June he is hitting south of the Mendoza line at .196. Before yesterday's 0-for-5 performance Segura had a BABIP of .209 this month. He now has a mark of .297 for the season, more than 20 points below his career norm. Regression to the mean will be Segura's friend. This could make him a buy low candidate if his owner in your league is nervous.
