Brian McCann (NYY) – McCann and the Yankees (fresh off 21 runs) get to face Colby Lewis in Arlington tonight. Lewis has allowed a .350 wOBA and 36.4 percent hard hit rate to LHBs since 2013. McCann has posted a .326 wOBA and .195 ISO against RHP during that same span. McCann is vulnerable to the shift but against fly ball pitchers, his power gets highlighted. Lewis has been able to generate just a 34 percent GB Rate against LHBs. This is a plus matchup for McCann and puts him inside our Top 20 overall hitters for the evening slate. He ranks a few places ahead of Russell Martin in our model and the slight price savings over Martin makes him a stronger play.
