Chris Paddack | MLB Underdog Fantasy Pick Today

No team has been better against right-handed pitchers than the Yankees this season, and very few teams have performed better at home. Although Chris Paddack has had some solid starts this season, he is still an average right-hander with average strikeout ability and a tendency to allow too much hard contact.

The Yankees, with a five-run team total at home where temperatures will be nearing 80 degrees, are in a strong position. Just three weeks ago, when Paddack faced the Yankees, he allowed 12 hits and five runs over five innings, and that was at home in Minnesota. Yankee Stadium will be a tougher test.

Vinnie Pasquantino | MLB Underdog Fantasy Pick Today

Pasquantino faces a quality right-hander to open the game in Nick Sandlin, followed by a lefty-lefty matchup with Logan Allen, who is expected to be the long reliever tonight.

While Allen hasn’t been dominant against lefties this season, his .076 xISO and .219 xWOBA against same-handed bats suggest he’s been rather unlucky. Once Pasquantino gets past these pitchers, he’ll contend with one or more arms from the Guardians bullpen, which ranks first across the board in nearly every relevant pitching category this season.
