Ahh, the smell of the fresh-cut grass. Chalk lines are being drawn, and the pine tar can. . . You know what, screw this long-winded introduction, with the only purpose being to pad my word count so homie can get paid.

MLB Split Report
Under normal circumstances, reviewing split data four weeks into the season would be premature and severely jumping the gun on small sample sizes. However, in 2020, nothing is normal. We’re one-third of the way from Opening Day to the end of this 60-game season. In the spirit of the sprint, now is a good time to review the top hitters vs. left/right-handed pitchers, and inversely, top pitchers vs. left/right-handed hitters. Here are the top ten in each category, and I’ll also take a look at some home/road splits.
*Stats as of 8/12/20
Top Hitters vs. LHP
- Charlie Blackmon (LH) – 18/28, 4 XBH, 1 HR, 8 RBI, 2:0 BB:K, .643/.667/.857/1.524
- Brandon Lowe (LH) – 8/19, 5 XBH, 3 HR, 4 RBI, .421/.500/1.000/1.500
- Trevor Story (RH) – 9/23, 4 HR, 7 RBI, 5:4 BB:K, .391/.500/.913/1.413
- Todd Frazier (RH) – 9/18, 4 XBH, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 3:4 BB:K, .500/.571/.833/1.405
- Mike Yastrzemski (LH) – 7/21, 6 XBH, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 5:7 BB:K, .333/.462/.810/1.271
- Xander Bogaerts (RH) – 9/23, 4 XBH, 2 HR, 4 RBI, .391/.417/.739/1.156
- Christian Vázquez (RH) – 6/20, 3 HR, 8 RBI, .300/.364/.750/1.114
- Michael Conforto (LH) – 9/29, 5 XBH, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 5:6 BB:K, .310/.412/.690/1.101
- David Fletcher (RH) – 8/22, 4 XBH, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 4:1 BB:K, .364/.462/.636/1.098
- Joey Gallo (LH) – 5/23, 5 XBH, 4 HR, 8 RBI, .217/.280/.783/1.063
Min: 18 AB – Interesting, top two are lefties, as well as five out of the ten hitters listed. Charlie Blackmon has been outstanding against the same side, but Yaz is who stands out to me. What a season the second-year outfielder is having (overall numbers: .303/.430/.632/1.062, 18.3 BB%, 21.5 K%, .329 ISO, 42.9% hard-hit rate)! Nice to see a catcher on this list, a light-hitting backstop no more in Vázquez. The last three men have been a blessing in 2020.
Top Hitters vs. RHP
- Mike Trout (RH) – 14/37, 7 XBH, 6 HR, 13 RBI, .378/.429/.892/1.320
- Donovan Solano (RH) – 21/41, 8 XBH, 1 HR, 14 RBI, .512/.523/.756/1.279
- Daniel Murphy (LH) – 13/31, 5 XBH, 3 HR, 10 RBI, .419/.471/.774/1.245
- Fernando Tatis Jr. (RH) – 19/55, 10 XBH, 7 HR, 16 RBI, .345/.410/.800/1.210
- Nick Castellanos (RH) – 13/41, 8 XBH, 6 HR, 10 RBI, .317/.404/.805/1.209
- Willson Contreras (RH) – 11/28, 6 XBH, 2 HR, 5 RBI, .393/.452/.750/1.202
- Jesús Aguilar (RH) – 7/25, 6 XBH, 4 HR, 8 RBI, 3:5 BB:K, .280/.333/.840/1.173
- Teoscar Hernández (RH) – 13/37, 8 XBH, 4 HR, 6 RBI, .351/.375/.784/1.159
- Matt Chapman (RH) – 13/37, 8 XBH, 4 HR, 6 RBI, .351/.375/.784/1.159
- Ian Happ (SW) – 8/27, 5 XBH, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 5:6 BB:K, .296/.406/.704/1.110
Min: 25 AB – Would have expected more lefties, but the real surprise here is Donovan Solano. Many believed Solano’s .330 average last year was the result of a few lucky breaks. Has the 32-year-old utilityman discovered something at the plate when most *all-purpose* players his age are wrapping up their careers? Solano leads MLB with nine doubles, so he’s not just been the recipient of a few lucky bounces.
Top Pitchers vs. LHH
- Shane Bieber (RHP) – 0.66 ERA, .149/.200/.170, .172 wOBA
- Zach Davies (RHP) – 0.84 ERA, .184/.184/.289, .202 wOBA
- Randy Dobnak (RHP) – 0.84 ERA, .189/.250/.243, .225 wOBA
- Carlos Carrasco (RHP) – 0.87 ERA, .147/.256/.294, .250 wOBA
- Dinelson Lamet (RHP) – 1.20 ERA, .118/.237/.196, .210 wOBA
- Lance Lynn (RHP) – 1.35 ERA, .170/.250/.277, .239 wOBA
- Jacob deGrom (RHP) – 1.46 ERA, .119/.196/.167, .172 wOBA
- Spencer Turnbull (RHP) – 1.46 ERA, .143/.234/.143, .187 wOBA
- Sonny Gray (RHP) – 2.08 ERA, .159/.275/.318, .267 wOBA
- Germán Márquez (RHP) – 2.08 ERA, .216/.259/.294, .245 wOBA
Min: 10 IP – Can’t believe there is not one LHP on this list. Wow! Bieber is making a strong claim to the Cy Young crown, and speaking of the award, the defending and two-time NL winner is up to old tricks while still elevating the velocity at 32 years of age. Did you expect to see Davies and Dobnak on this list? No, neither did I. Dobnak is proudly representing all the Uber drivers out there who are parked, waiting for a ride request, and dreaming of higher aspirations. Carlos Carrasco is an awesome comeback story in his own right, and “where the hell have you been, (Lance Lynn)?” Don’t get me wrong, we saw the resurgence begin in 2018, but he has reached another level this season.
Top Pitchers vs. RHH
- Frankie Montas (RHP) – 0.77 ERA, .081/.146/.108, .125 wOBA
- Zach Plesac (RHP) – 0.79 ERA, .150/.150/.275, .179 wOBA
- Lance Lynn (RHP) – 0.90 ERA, .065/.237/.161, .204 wOBA
- Max Fried (LHP) – 1.08 ERA, .186/.250/.288, .240 wOBA
- Patrick Corbin (LHP) – 1.46 ERA, .191/.240/.277, .231 wOBA
- Jesús Luzardo (LHP) – 1.46 ERA, .190/.292/.310, .264 wOBA
- Merrill Kelly (RHP) – 1.69 ERA, .279/.279/.465, .317 wOBA
- Framber Valdez (LHP) – 1.93 ERA, .255/.268/.345, .267 wOBA
- Gerrit Cole (RHP) – 1.98 ERA, .184/.200/.347, .232 wOBA
- Germán Márquez (RHP) – 2.08 ERA, .159/.208/.295, .220 wOBA
Min: 10 IP – Continuing the weirdness that is 2020, this list contains four LHP. Speaks to Valdez, Fried and Luzardo’s propensity to be tough on the right-handers with their sinker, whereas Corbin’s slider is a nightmare to deal with at the plate. With Márquez, it’s like déjà vu all over again being top-10 versus both sides of the plate. Like Lynn above, Márquez has built upon last year’s success and reached another level. He’s lowered the walks, struck out at least one batter per inning pitched, and kept the ball in the park… all keys to pitching successfully at Coors Field. Finally, Montas has picked up where he left off before last year’s suspension.
A little break for your eyes!
Best Hitters (HOME)
- Fernando Tatis Jr. (RH) – 15/38, 10 XBH, 6 HR, 12 RBI, .395/.465/1.000/1.465
- José Ramírez (SW) – 14/32, 7 XBH, 4 HR, 10 RBI, .438/.486/.938/1.423
- Charlie Blackmon (LH) – 17/32, 3 XBH, 2 HR, 12 RBI, .531/.529/.750/1.279
- Wil Myers (RH) – 8/31, 6 XBH, 4 HR, 7 RBI, .258/.361/.710/1.071
- Brandon Lowe (LH) – 11/33, 6 XBH, 1 HR, 7 RBI, .333/.405/.636/1.042
Min: 30 AB – Speaking of picking up where a player left off, roughly a year to the day his back started acting up, Tatis finds himself in the elite of the league. With more playing time, his teammate, Wil Myers, is fantasy relevant again. No slow start for JRam this season.
Best Hitters (AWAY)
- Giancarlo Stanton (RH) – 12/30, 6 XBH, 3 HR, 7 RBI, 7:8 BB:K, .400/.514/.800/1.314
- Kyle Lewis (RH) – 16/34, 3 HR, 10 RBI, .471/.526/.735/1.262
- Nelson Cruz (RH) – 12/34, 6 XBH, 4 HR, 11 RBI, .353/.405/.765/1.170
- Jesús Aguilar (RH) – 10/31, 6 XBH, 4 HR, 6 RBI, 3:5 BB:K, .323/.382/.774/1.157
- Charlie Blackmon (LH) – 14/32, 5 XBH, 1 HR, 7 RBI, .438/.500/.656/1.156
Min: 30 AB – Should we just give the MVP to Charlie Blackmon now? Is .400 in play?? Shame Stanton can’t stay healthy. He murders baseballs everywhere. Kyle Lewis has slowed down from a fast start, but these road numbers illustrate the scorching talent. Nelson Cruz is timeless like Led Zeppelin and The Shawshank Redemption. Aguilar is making a very Richard Pryor-like statement: “I Ain’t Dead Yet, #*%$#@!!”
Best Pitchers (HOME)
- Tyler Chatwood (RHP) – 0.71 ERA, .140/.213/.186, .187 wOBA
- Chris Bassitt (RHP) – 0.82 ERA, .200/.273/.275, .248 wOBA
- Sonny Gray (RHP) – 0.96 ERA, .129/.206/.242, .204 wOBA
- Lance Lynn (RHP) – 1.06 ERA, .123/.242/.211, .217 wOBA
- Kyle Hendricks (RHP) – 1.13 ERA, .179/.175/.196, .161 wOBA
Min: 10 IP – Winds must be blowing in for every game at Wrigley so far this year, although Chatwood came back down to earth in his next start after this data sample! I’m excited for Chris Bassitt. Always been a fan, and I’m glad he’s reaching his potential. He mixes three types of fastballs (sinker – 93mph, cutter – 88mph, four-seam – 94mph) with an 84mph change and curveball with exceptional bite. Sonny Gray continues to be a revelation as well as a staple for the Reds rotation.
Best Pitchers (AWAY)
- Anthony DeSclafani (RHP) – 0.00 ERA, .135/.158/.189, .153 wOBA
- Framber Valdez (LHP) – 0.68 ERA, .235/.264/.333, .261 wOBA
- Trevor Bauer (RHP) – 0.69 ERA, .116/.191/.186, .178 wOBA
- Adrian Houser (RHP) – 0.75 ERA, .167/.286/.278, .262 wOBA
- Dylan Bundy (RHP) – 1.15 ERA, .130/.161/.222, .170 wOBA
Min: 10 IP – We’ve now seen Valdez pop up a couple times in this split report. We’ll see his worth in the upcoming start at Coors. Dylan Bundy is glad to be out of the sandbox that is Camden Yards, but more than that, his slider has been fiya. The results have been remarkable: .240 xwOBA (Top 10% of league), 2.8 BB% (Top 8%), 2.27 xERA (Top 10%). Bauer and Anthony D join Sonny in what has become a formidable rotation. Left out of this conversation is staff ace and stud puppy, Luis Castillo. With a potent batting lineup to match, if Cincinnati is one of the 16 teams that make the playoffs, they are my dark horse to win the whole.. fucking… thing. Wouldn’t that be ironic for Cleveland?

MLB GAME BREAKDOWN GRID
As you can see in the grid above, 25 of the 30 teams play seven or more games, with St. Louis playing an unbelievable NINE games (although, with two doubleheaders, the innings total for the week lies at 73, or 8.11 games). Games are conditional on Reds’ status. It’s imperative to pay attention to the schedule when setting your weekly lineups. Week 5 has lots of make-up games and doubleheaders, which makes for an even more voluminous week for our hitters after a light Week 4. The one silver lining of the postponements is our hitters should have many seven-game (or more) weeks down the stretch and for the fantasy playoffs. Quick, somebody, knock on some wood!
*Cincinnati Reds awaiting more COVID-19 testing results, won’t play Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Both teams cut down to six games for now with no doubleheader to be played 8/17.
WEEKLY INTERLEAGUE OUTLOOK
For (at least) the 2020 season, every game will see a designated hitter with the universal DH rule. As a result, this section of the MLB Weekly Preview loses its regular functionality, but I felt compelled to continue documenting interleague series for informative purposes. #KnowledgeIsPower
What are your thoughts about the new universal DH rule? Should MLB consider adopting it on a permanent basis? Or is it merely fodder for the unusual 2020 season? Let us know your thoughts in the chat room or on Twitter, @FantasyGuruSite.

STARTING PITCHER RANKINGS FOR AUGUST 17 – 23
What’s wrong with MadBum? Ok, we know what’s *wrong* with him currently, a mid-back strain which has landed the 12-year vet on the IL. Clearly, there is more amiss than just the back. His velocity is well known to be down from previous seasons. Terrific writer for MLB.com, Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) gives the specifics:
“Bumgarner’s three starts this season have been the three lowest of his career by average four-seam fastball velocity, at 87.9 mph on both Opening Day and July 29, and then 88.1 mph on Aug. 4. He’s averaging 87.9 mph on his four-seamer this year, and 85.7 mph on all fastballs (including his sinker and cutter). Bumgarner has never been a high-velocity pitcher, but he’s typically been at a higher level than this. Prior to 2020, his highest average fastball velocity was 92.7 mph in ’15, and his lowest was 88.1 mph in ’18.”
In Bumgardner’s last start, the four-seamer was down to 87.1mph when he struggled with the back issue. Overall, a drop of 2.4mph from his lowest average total two years ago is alarming but not out of nowhere. The slow train has been pulling into the station, yet, this year has been extreme. Big surprise, 2020. The blame can easily lie on the unusual ramp up to the season. After all, MadBum was hitting 91/92mph during Spring Training. Possibly, the back issue initially arose in Summer Camp, making the ramp up more difficult. Knowing him, he could have been pushing through and bulldogging it for his new team, if you will. However, I’ve caught many pitchers in my lifetime, and when I see a drop-off this severe, it is usually mechanical. Poor mechanics can often cause back issues for pitchers, and back issues can lead to poor mechanics.
So, are his mechanics wonky, and could this be the culprit? Let’s look at the film:
Video of MadBum in 2014:
Video of MadBum’s debut in 2020:
Did you see it? It is slight but vital, especially for velocity and causing strain on the mid to lower back. One of the main factors in a pitcher’s velo is the torque achieved through hip and shoulder separation. The degree of his hip-to-shoulder separation has decreased roughly 10° by my estimation. This 10° places more strain on both the hips and back while the pitcher rotates and shifts their lower body to face the plate during delivery. A contribution to the decrease in velocity because fluidity is affected and the pitcher’s body is exhausting more energy in this rotation, taking away from arm speed. Furthermore, MadBum’s plant leg is now bent more than in ‘14, which can cause both dips in velocity as well as potential UCL damage if done long term.
Bumgardner is the inverse of Jacob deGrom, who has made his mechanics much more fluid and easy, causing a historic INCREASE in velocity. He needs to have more hip-to-shoulder separation and slightly stiffen up that plant leg. If MadBum makes these corrections to his mechanics, his back will feel better while his catcher’s hand will feel sorer. Somebody get me Mike Hazen on the phone!
Ray talks about his perspective time table and replacement here.
MLB WEEKLY PREVIEW | INJURED LIST REPORT
Besides names that may already be listed, here is the latest injury news on a few of your fantasy studs. I will update you early in the week. Initially, there was NO MORE 10-DAY IL FOR PITCHERS, but then COVID-19 hit, and we are back to the 10-day for pitchers… understandably.
Jeff McNeil (Bruised Left Knee) – McNeil made a fully-extended, miraculous catch while running into the outfield wall on 8/13. He came up lame and had to take a cart ride, as his left knee suffered the brunt of the collision. Both X-ray and MRI were clean, and McNeil will likely avoid the IL. Belief is McNeil may be able to play as soon as 8/18. Update: McNeil pinch-hit in the top of the ninth today. He was his normal squirrel self and has avoided major injury. Look for him to rejoin the lineup tonight in Miami.
Ronald Acuña Jr. & Ozzie Albies are both out with wrist injuries. Acuña is now on the 10-day IL (retroactive to 8/10) and eligible to return 8/21. Not viewed to be a significant injury, but the wrist was still sore as of this writing. Why push your superstar when 16 teams make the playoffs this year? Yet, another hurdle to scale in the 2020 fantasy baseball season. Ender Inciarte will receive more playing time while Acuña is out. As for Albies, who has been on the IL since 8/5, he took swings off a tee 8/14 but has been coming along slowly. He is unlikely to rejoin the Braves until late August. Johan Camargo continues to fill in and has been swinging a hot bat in the meantime (5/19, 3 XBH, 2 HR, 4 RBI last five). Could make for a decent streamer.
Aaron Judge (Mild Calf Strain) – Another trip to the IL for Mr. Judge. What is in the water up in the Bronx (see Split Report for words on Stanton)? What was once “lower-body tightness” is now a strain. The strain is “at worst Grade 1,” but who knows what to believe. Yanks are being both protective and coy, just as the Braves are with Acuña. When he’s healthy and in the lineup, he also murders baseballs.
It’s been a rough week for Washington…
Starlin Castro (Broken Wrist) – On a diving attempt to prevent an RBI single, Castro jammed his right wrist into the ground as he braced himself to make the play. X-rays after the game confirmed a break, and he will be out on IL for a while. The Nationals selected coveted infield prospect, Luis Garcia’s contract, and he could see time at second base in Castro’s absence. Garcia started with a bang and showed off his plus hit tool (2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and 2 RBI), so he may be worth a speculative add. The Nats also have Asdrubal Cabrera or Josh Harrison who can play second, and Garcia’s 2019 Double-A slash line read .257/.280/.337 over 553 plate appearances… not eye-popping.
Stephen Strasburg (Carpal Tunnel Neuritis) left his last start after one inning on 8/14. He has subsequently landed on the IL, and the comment from Dave Martinez was, “it’s not going to be for a short period of time.” No Bueno.
Padres didn’t fare well either.
Kirby Yates (Right Elbow Inflammation) exited San Diego’s 5-1 loss to the D-backs in the eighth inning and lands on the 10-day injured list. He will have an MRI and other testing over the weekend. Tests revealed bone chips in the elbow and Bob Nightengale reports his season is over. Yates is seeking a second opinion, however.
Next day, Wil Myers departed due to back tightness, and Tommy Pham had calf cramps, also leaving the game. It’s not yet clear how much time Myers will miss. Edward Olivares could be in line for an increased role in his absence or at DH if Pham misses time. Pham’s initial diagnosis doesn’t make it sound as though he’s in line for a particularly lengthy absence, though the Padres have yet to release a timeline for his return… and now Pham has a broken hamate bone and his fantasy season is over.
Mets pitchers Jacob deGrom (Stiff Neck, DTD) and Michael Wacha (Shoulder Stiffness, IL) both did a little throwing on the side on 8/15. Next step for both will be a bullpen session to determine their next course of action.
Michael Brantley (Right Quad Discomfort) – Dusty Baker made the call on 8/15 to place the OF/DH on the injured list after he didn’t respond well when working on outfield drills with coach Gary Pettis. Eligible to return on 8/22 – though no official time table – Kyle Tucker will be the primary left fielder in his absence with Yordan Alvarez serving as the designated hitter.
POV SPECIAL – TOP SP STREAM OF THE WEEK
→ None as of now… FAAB sucks for pitchers, particularly for two-start waiver wire pickups. If any pop up, I’ll update.

PITCH OR DITCH
The key to winning in daily fantasy baseball leagues is determining which starting pitcher should start in your lineup and who should sit on your bench. Or worse yet, which MLB hurler belongs in the land of The Walking Dead (aka waiver wire). Every day, I will update the article with the daily slate of men toeing the rubber. Recommended starts will be marked in Bold Green – sits will be marked in Bold Red – and the “fool’s gold” will be marked in Bold Yellow and should be cast to the waiver wire. Of course, the size of your league matters… that’s what she said! Come back on each day when pitchers are set in stone. If you play in leagues with daily roster locks, you’re going to wanna check back with the MLB Weekly Preview …on the daily!
