The Hot Corner: Plays for Thursday, June 8th

Yesterday was abysmal. Back in the lab we go!

Colin Rea O4.5 Ks +106

*BAL strikes out 21.5% vs RHP in L30

*BAL allows 3rd most Ks in L3 (11.33)

*6 strike out targets in the lineup

Rea isn’t a strike out pitcher per se but this Orioles lineup should reap an easy cash. Always looking for the value.

Zach Wheeler O7.5 Ks -136

*DET strikes out 24% vs RHP in L30

*DET strikes out the most in L3 (12.67)

*4 strike out targets in the lineup

With only 4 strike out targets, this logic is based on Tigers striking out at the highest clip combined with Wheeler who can rack up nearly double digits against ‘free swinging lineups’.

Reid Detmers O6.5 Ks +120

*CHC strikes out 26.3% vs LHP

*CHC averages 10 Ks in L3

*4 strike out targets (plus 4 hitters with over 20% strike out)

Detmers has been tough to trust this season as he has been hit early and often. This lineup and its difficulties against LHP screams the over. Take the discount due to Detmers’ struggles.
