Matt Cain, SF vs. ATL ($31): Picking on the Braves has likely been a season-long strategy for some, even moreso now with Freddie Freeman sidelined. Even with Freeman's brilliance factored in, the team features a .323 wOBA and .145 ISO. That seemingly bodes well for Cain, who's been completely feast or famine this season, owning six starts where he's given up two runs or less and three where he's allowed a combined 20 earned runs over 13.0 innings. All of Cain's good outings have come at home (1.18 ERA vs. 8.28 away) where he also has a 23.3 percent strikeout rate (compared to 9.8 on the road).
Mike Clevinger, CLE vs. KC ($25): With Thursday rainouts altering options, you're likely going to be hard-pressed for success if you're not paying for one of the top three arms; Max Scherzer ($57), Chris Archer ($51), or Jacob deGrome ($51). But presumably those rainouts also push Clevinger back to Friday and Danny Salazar to Saturday, presenting an opportunity. Clevinger is unblemished in two of his three starts and sports a 1.56 ERA overall, owning a .219 wOBA allowed to lefties and .193 to righties, while striking out batters at a 25.9 percent and 31.6 percent rate respectively. The Royals counter with a continually anemic offense that musters a .140 ISO and .285 wOBA against right handers.
Matt Wieters, WAS vs. SD ($14): Wieters brings an 11-game hitting streak into Friday's contest and should return to the lineup after sitting out Thursday afternoon's game. Padres starter Luis Perdomo has been abused by left-handed bats to the tune of a .460 wOBA and 1.084 OPS, which swells to .603/1.428 on the road, which should help Wieters improve on his current .303 wOBA against righties.
Matt Carpenter, STL at COL ($23): Carpenter crushes right handers to the tune of a .395 wOBA and .269 ISO, numbers that only increase to .470/.348 on the road, where he also boasts a 47.1 percent hard hit rate. That should play nicely at Coors Field in a matchup with Antonio Senzatela, who has allowed eight earned runs over his last 10.0 innings.
Devon Travis, TOR vs. TEX ($15): Travis has thoroughly enjoyed the month of May, owning a .411 wOBA and .270 ISO after a .178/.065 April. He carried a nine-game hitting streak into Thursday, having gone 17-of-37 (.459) in that span. He'll offer a cheaper buy into a Jays' lineup facing Rangers' starter A.J. Griffin, who has allowed 13 runs over his last 8.1 frames.
Alex Bregman, HOU vs. BAL ($11): Bregman hasn't been quite as hot as Travis, but he's also enjoyed a nice May surge, posting a .346 wOBA and .219 ISO against righties against a .296/.060 in April. Astro starts Carlos Correa ($21) and Jose Altuve ($20) aren't overly cost prohibitive in a juicy matchup with O's starter Kevin Gausman, who has allowed 19 hits and seven runs over his last 9.1 innings and sports a 6.65 ERA overall, but Bregman offers a cheaper buy in against the struggling starter.
Francisco Lindor, CLE at HOU ($17): Royals' starter Ian Kennedy hasn't made it out of the fifth inning in either of his last two starts, surrendering nine hits and nine runs over 6.1 innings. I'll continue to roll with Lindor at this price, as there are six others with higher tags, and the talent and upside drop off substantially behind Lindor. That he has a .346 wOBA and seven of his 10 homers this year have come off of righties just adds to his appeal.
Michael Conforto, NYM at PIT ($24): On paper, this matchup almost seems too good to be true. Pirates starter Chad Kuhl is allowing a .423 wOBA and 1.019 OPS to lefties on the year, and has a 8.20 ERA over 18.2 home innings. Conforto counters with a .460 wOBA and .354 ISO against righties. As long as you can afford him, there's little reason to not roll with Conforto.
Nomar Mazara, TEX at TOR ($16): Mazara saw an 11-game hitting streak snapped Wednesday night in a pinch hit appearance, going 16-of-42 (.381) in that span. He boasts a team-leading .368 wOBA against righties among Ranger regulars, while also having the lowest strikeout rate at 17.8 percent, giving him a a chance to take advantage of his .327 BABIP against Jays' starter Mike Bolsinger and his 6.32 ERA. A Rangers' stack isn't an awful play, but Mazara clearly has a safer floor over the likes of Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Gallo.
Khris Davis, OAK at NYY ($14): You're gambling on a long ball here, something Davis has done 14 times this year, 13 of which have come off of right handers. That's led to a .333 ISO to compliment a respectable .367 wOBA for a .230 hitter. Yankee's starter Masahiro Tanaka has been battered by right handers this season, allowing a .440 wOBA and 1.042 OPS (.536/1.314 at home), seeing five balls leave the yard over 52 batters faced.
