Mr. Martinez looks to go two in a row today on this fine Friday! Make sure you are following our guy @m42tinez on Twitter.
Chris Taylor HR (+600)
Our free play today presents a ton of value and here’s why. In 22 career at-bats against Rockies LHP Kyle Freeland, Taylor has six hits including two solo bombs. Dating back to last season, Freeland has allowed a homer in each of his last three starts versus the Dodgers. What really stands out to me for Taylor tonight is the success he’s had hitting against lefties, at home and against the Rockies this season. Taylor is slugging .587 with six home runs against southpaws. Then at home, he’s hit 12 of his 18 total homers with a .568 slugging percentage. In 12 games against the Rockies this season, Taylor is batting .289 with four home runs and eight RBIs. Three of the four homers versus the Rockies have come at Dodgers Stadium. This matchup for Taylor provides home run potential tonight.
