Yasmani Grandal (LAD) – If you’ve been reading the content all week long, not much is going to change today. The game in Coors Field has two teams with implied run totals over five runs and few others around the league have an implied run total over 4.3 runs. It’s a big disparity in the world of projections which places an emphasis on the Rockies and Dodgers in our content. Grandal is clearly our top catcher option. He’s hit RHP well in his career (.354 wOBA, .178 ISO) and is receiving a nice big park shift in his favor. The Dodgers will face Chad Bettis who has historically struggled with LHBs (.338 wOBA allowed). Bettis has pitched well early in the season (aided by half his starts coming against the Phillies) and at the lower minor leagues flashed some intriguing peripherals but still projects at best as a league average pitcher in neutral environments. Coors Field is anything but neutral, so we’ll continue to pile on the Dodgers bats. Grandal is a Top 10 overall hitter in our model and the catcher to pay up for on Wednesday.
