Nick Friar:

Yodan Alvarez is the guy I really like (at) $5.6K going up against the Twins. Dylan Bundy is on the mound.

I know that Yordan has slowed down quite a bit this month. Only one extra-base hit against right-handed pitching this month. That can’t maintain, especially when you consider he’s got a 35.5% fly-ball rate and 58.1% hard-contact rate against right-handed pitching this month.

Dylan Bundy is a guy he’s had decent success against throughout his career: .273 average with one home run and one double in (12) plate appearances. But, left-handed hitters have a 54.8% fly-ball rate against Bundy since the break. I love that number for Yordan Alvarez, and I think he’s going to pop off tonight.

Nick’s Pick: Yordan Alvarez ($5,600)
