Buster Posey (SF) – Posey gets a huge park shift in his favor and is facing a fly ball oriented RHP in a park that inflates home runs. In addition with Fiers pitching on short rest, the likelihood of bullpen innings increases substantially. The Brewers have one of the weaker bullpens in all of baseball. Posey is generally a bit too expensive around the industry for cash game consideration but he’s a very strong tournament option. He ranks within our Top 35 hitters overall.
Brian McCann (NYY) – McCann faces Chris Young who is an extreme fly ball pitcher (64.2 percent this season) that allows a heavy pull percentage (44.9 percent). McCann is a rather pull heavy hitter himself (49.6 percent) and fly ball heavy as well (45.1 percent). In Yankee Stadium, this is a good recipe for home run potential. Any hitter facing Young has a bit of a boom-or-bust profile because he’s so fly ball prone but this matchup in this park, McCann’s upside overwhelms the downside.
