Pitchers vs Team
Breakdown-Elite stats vs RHH(Right Handed Hitters) 51% GB rate, 12.4 K/9 ZERO HRs allowed so far and a low .202 average against. He also does well vs LHH(Left Handed Hitters) 11.8K/9, .207 average against and only .7 HR/9. Marlins are only batting .224 vs RHP and strike out at a 24.3% clip.
Breakdown- Ground ball pitcher (52% to LHHs & 48% to RHHs). Limits Hard Contact(HC under 27% vs RH me LHHs.) Limits HRs-under 1.1. Also, Dodgers have struggled vs LHP this year .228 average and 22% K rate. Park rating slightly favors the pitcher.
Breakdown- Phillies strike out at a 26.4% clip vs RHP and Gohara has show a high K rate in both the Major and Minor league (over 10k/9). In 29 innings he has only given up .9 HR/9 and in limited innings vs LHHs he has done well. I do not expect him to go deep into the game maybe 5-6 innings tops, but do expect 6+ Ks. Potential risk, but could pay off at his 6K price on FD.
