Yasmani Grandal (LAD) – The Dodgers have a double-header with the Rockies so paying attention to lineups in the first game can help shed light on the second game. Catcher is one of the easiest spots as catchers rarely catch both ends of the double-header. If Grandal sits the first game, he’ll represent a clear cut top option at the position for the evening slate. Grandal is an above average hitter against RHP and elite for a catcher. He’s posted a .355 wOBA and .180 ISO against RHP since 2012 and has compiled those statistics largely in poor hitting environments (PETCO, Dodgers Stadium). On Tuesday, he’ll have the benefit of Coors Field and he’ll face David Hale who profiles as a below average RHP. Hale has allowed a .331 wOBA and walked (10.9 percent) as many LHBs as he’s struck out (10.9 percent) in his big league career. ZiPS projection system is really pessimistic on Hale’s abilities against LHBs, projecting a .370 wOBA allowed. Grandal ranks inside our Top 15 hitters overall. UPDATE: Grandal is not catching the first game of the double header, which means he should catch the nightcap.
