Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Angels at Athletics

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Los Angeles Angels (0-0) at Oakland Athletics (0-0)

Friday, July 25th, 10:10 PM EDT

Projected starters

LHP Andrew Heaney (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs RHP Frankie Montas (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

Game Preview

The Angels will have Mike Trout this season, and that certainly boosts their chances of potentially making a playoff run in 2020. The Athletics, on the other hand, are the odds-on favorite to win the AL West – and they will try to kick things off with a win at home. The pitching matchup will feature a lefty, Andrew Heaney, against an up-and-coming righty such as Frankie Montas. Heaney went 4-6 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 18 starts during the 2019 season, but the Athletics were one of the best teams in the league against left-handed pitchers with a 115wRC+, so this might not be an ideal matchup for the 29-year-old. Meanwhile, Montas went 9-2 with a 2.63 ERA in 16 starts last season, but it remains to be seen if he'll be able to carry that form into 2020.
