KC and Tampa are 29th and 27th in Barrels per Plate Appearance thus far in 2021. They’re also both bottom half of the league in Hard Hit % so far. They’re both facing lefties today, and neither group is putting up great offensive numbers against lefties.
-The wind is blowing in from left field at 15 mph in a very pitcher-friendly park, and Tampa goes with Josh Fleming, who has a 2.65 ERA in his career including a 2.93 ERA as a starter. He’s got just a 2.08 ERA on the road in his short career and is 3-0 against teams with winning records so far. He faces Danny Duffy who has just a 0.75 ERA this year in two starts with just 6 ER in his last 4 starts against Tampa. I think this line is low, but I completely agree with it. Should be a snooze fest here.
