pick locked in 10 days ago
8:10 PM EST. Lots of moving parts here. First, the Yanks are in a letdown series after four at Boston over the weekend, including a double-header yesterday. Secondly, the Yanks have been struggling for well over a month with one of the worst W/L records in baseball. Aside from all that, you’ll pay to back the Yankees against any team not named Houston or Boston mainly because Aaron Judge is now the face of MLB with every network trying to turn him into a superstar in his rookie year. At the All-Star game, 40 reporters were around Judge at all times while two or fewer reporters were around everyone else. In any case, this is a very decent spot to fade the Yanks with Bryan Mitchell starting.

Mitchell has appeared in 12 games this season but this will be his first start, which is a completely different mindset. He’s only thrown 16 innings all year, which also puts him a step behind every player. That’s another disadvantage he’ll have to try and overcome. Mitchell threw just 25 innings for the Yanks last season. This hard-throwing righty with a groundball tilt was set to open in the Yanks pen last year but a fractured toe intervened in late March and he didn’t pitch until August. A starter for most of his career, he held his own on paper in five September starts but he had poor peripherals. He still does. Mitchell’s shaky control and weak swing and miss rate tab him as a middle reliever and not the chalk in his first start of the year on the road, no less.
In 65 frames covering 13 starts, Adalberto Mejia has a 4-4 record with a 4.43 ERA. However, if you take out one start against the Mariners in which he was tagged for nine runs in 3.2 innings, his numbers would look a whole lot better. In fact, in 11 of his 13 starts, Mejia has allowed three earned runs or less. In his final two starts in June on the road at Boston and Cleveland, Mejia did not allow a single run. He’s also getting stretched out more. In his first nine starts, the Twins had him on a 90-pitch count but he’s thrown over 100 pitches in three of his last four starts. There are other redeeming qualities as well. Mejia’s 18% line-drive rate (16% over his last three starts) is well below the league average of 21%. His WHIP, K-rate and swing and miss stuff are all trending in the right direction too. The Twinkies are bringing him along slowly and it appears to be working. This prospect with decent repertoire and pitchability was shut down last season shortly after late-Aug MLB debut due to innings limit. Mejia had an impressive 3.00 ERA, 126/30 K/BB in 132 IP at AA/AAA levels and he seems to be figuring it out at this level now. Target Field should be hopping tonight and the Twinkies should not be a dog here.
