Today we are in the midst of the 2022 MLB Playoffs divisional series.
Many teams may implement different strategies in order to stay ahead of pitching and take advantage of hitting matchups. Sometimes this makes predicting outcomes a bit challenging, so use your best judgment.
Additionally since there are only 2 games today, you should consider mixing and matching other picks since the MLB picks are so closely correlated to each other.
Luis Castillo (SEA) Under 5.0 Strikeouts
Luis Castillo and the Seattle Mariners will be facing the Houston Astros. Castillo has a 2.99 ERA and 27.2% strikeout rate. Castillo has been averaging 1.1 strikeouts per inning and has a 0.78 HR/9 . The Astros have a 19.5% strikeout rate and 10.2% swinging strike rate as well as a 17.6 ISO.
The Mariners will likely have a tight leash on Castillo and have the bullpen ready to go if he gets into trouble. Because of this I don’t expect him to go as deep as he normally might.
Framber Valdez (HOU) Under 35.5 Pitcher Fantasy Score
Framber Valdez and the Houston Astros will be facing the Seattle Mariners. Valdez has a 2.82 ERA and 23.5% strikeout rate. Valdez has been averaging 1.0 strikeouts per inning and has a 0.49 HR/9 . The Mariners have a 22.8% strikeout rate and 10.6% swinging strike rate as well as a 16.0 ISO.
Similar situation as above. He may not go as deep as he usually would in the regular season.
Steven Kwan (CLE) Over 5.0 Hitter Fantasy Score
Steven Kwan has a 37.3% on base percentage, 0.4 SLG, and 0.298 batting average. Steven Kwan also has a 3.1% swinging strike percentage and a 124 wRC+. Nestor Cortes will be pitching for The Yankees and has a 2.44 ERA, 26.5% strikeout rate, 3.64 xFIP and 0.91 HR/9.
Anthony Rizzo (NYY) Over 5.0 Hitter Fantasy Score
Anthony Rizzo has a 33.8% on base percentage, 0.48 SLG, and 0.224 batting average. Anthony Rizzo also has a 9.8% swinging strike percentage and a 132 wRC+. Shane Bieber will be pitching for The Guardians and has a 2.88 ERA, 25.0% strikeout rate, 2.98 xFIP and 0.81 HR/9.
