Yasmani Grandal (LAD) – Grandal gets a nice big park shift as the Dodgers head to Arlington to take on the Rangers. Grandal has compiled impressive numbers against RHP in recent years, posting a .355 wOBA and .182 ISO since 2012; and he typically garners a strong lineup spot. He’s hit fifth in two of the last three games he’s started and even if he shifts to sixth the impact in a deep lineup on the road isn’t as significant. The Dodgers rank first in wRC+ against RHP and possess a healthy team total approaching 4.5 runs. Grandal has one of the best platoon splits of all the catchers in action and he’s playing in arguably the best hitting environment. He’s a Top 50 hitter in our model and our top catcher option.
