7:05 PM EST. Ryne Stanek (RHP - TB) won’t bring any roto roto-glory to the table because he’s only going to pitch one or two innings but he usually brings the goods. His skill set is far from perfect but his velocity and strikeouts are in abundance and this has nothing to do with getting behind Tampa’s start by committee strategy. This is a straight fade against C.C. Sabathia but it is worth noting that the Rays have MLB’s best road record at 14-5.
C.C. Sabathia's (LHP - NYY) current 3.9 BB’s/9 is the worst of his career (though his 61% first-pitch strike rate remains unchanged from the last three seasons), his 6.8 K’s/9 is also at its lowest level since 2004, and his 8% swing and miss rate, 88.8 mph velocity and 5.08 xERA, are all career lows. He just faced the Rays in his last start and allowed four walks to two strikeouts against them. C.C. Sabathia’s BABIP is .183, which is about as lucky as one could possibly get. The major league average for BABIP is .302. Sabathia’s strand percentage is 92.7 when the MLB average is 75.8%. A major correction to Sabathia’s massively misleading 3.26 surface ERA is coming so keep fading him until the value in fading him is gone.
