PLEASE NOTE: The content does not include the two games starting at 6:10 PM EST (KC-CLE, TOR-BOS). These games are being excluded on most sites with the exception of user created contests, so we’ve decided to remove them from the content. We will briefly cover them in our lineup alerts.
Weather: The game with the biggest weather implications today is the TEX-SEA game. Please see Meteorologist Mark Paquette’s game by game weather forecasts below the Analysis.
If any weather situations shift drastically, we will keep you updated with lineup alerts so make sure to check your email inbox up until roster lock.
Brian McCann (NYY) – McCann ranks as the top healthy catcher option in our model, but ranks as just our 60th best hitter option overall. The matchup with Nate Karns is a good one for LHBs. Karns has faced 100 LHBs in his major league career and he’s allowed a .357 wOBA and 2.11 HR/9 while walking 16 percent of the LHBs he’s faced. He does strike guys out (23 percent) and generally he’s gotten ground balls (48.3 percent) but the short porch in RF coupled with a favorable lineup spot (typically fifth) makes McCann your best bet for success at a thin catcher position.
