What’s up, everybody? Happy Friday and welcome to the first full slate Friday. FanDuel has us set up for a 12 game slate and there’s a lot to like. Overall, I’m not a big batter vs pitcher historical data guy. Don’t get me wrong, I still skim the data to see if anything jumps off the page, but usually, the sample size is too small to take anything away. However, I’m throwing all that out the window on Friday and jumping on the Freddie Freeman ($4,600) train because of what he’s done against Zack Wheeler. In 30 plate appearances versus Wheeler, Freeman is 10/19, with 3 doubles, 2 homers, and 10 walks for a triple slash of .526/.667/1.000. I really liked Zack Wheeler coming into the year, but so far the fastball command that I fell in love with in 2018 has disappeared. The walk rate on his fastball is up to 17.9% from 7.9% in 2018, albeit in a small sample. Let’s take a look at the rest of FanDuel’s Friday slate.
