The Red Sox are on pace to go 142-20 after they dismantled the Angels last night thanks to the three homer night by Mookie Betts. I hate to rain on the Red Sox parade but tonight might be a tough night for Rick Porcello.
The current Angels roster has 155 at-bats against Porcello and is hitting .316 off of him with seven homers and a .523 slugging percentage. Tyler Skaggs goes for the Angels and he has very little history against the current Red Sox roster. Hanley Ramirez has faced him the most with 7 plate appearances and Skaggs has struggled to get him out. Ramirez is hitting .600 off of Skaggs with a homer, a double and two walks
Our projections have the Red Sox losing tonight 5-3
Our Draft Kings projections look like this:
Mookie Betts is projected to go for 9 points tonight to lead all Red Sox batter projections. He had a monster night last night.
Tzu-Wei Lin should be getting the start at SS tonight and he has the best value of any Red Sox player on the board. He is projected to get 7 points tonight and his salary is just $2900 for a value of 2.24 points per $1000 spent.
Mike Trout is projected to go for 10 points tonight which is the highest projection of any position player playing tonight. He has homered twice off of Porcello in his career but is only hitting .241 off of him.
The best valued position player tonight is the Atlanta Braves Ender Inciarte. He is projected to go for 8 points tonight and his salary is just $3,300. That is a value of 2.51 points per $1,000 spent
