These are some good starting pitchers vs. team roster batting analyses for Monday May 13.


Phillies @ Mets

The Phillies are 6-2 in the last eight games of this series, but the real focus will be on Sean Manaea.

Philadelphia's career statistics vs. Manaea are 15 of 32 at bats (.469).  Yeah that's close to 50% hitting.  They have 10 RBIs and 5 home runs over this span.

Manaea yielded three runs over six innings on Monday in a win against the Cardinals and allowed one run on three hits in five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs prior to that.

He's 2-1 with a 3.31 ERA across the realm of sportsbooks and pay per head sites.

Nick Castellanos clubbed his third home run of the season on Friday night as the Phillies crushed the Marlins in Miami.  He is 5 of 8 versus Manaea.  Whit Merrifield is 4 for 8 against him.

New York is 10-12 at home and 19-20 overall. The Mets have the 10th-ranked team batting average in the NL at .236.

Philadelphia has a 28-13 record overall and a 13-6 record on the road. Phillies hitters have a collective .424 slugging percentage to rank second in the NL.

Philadelphia was a -124 favorite overnight.

Seven of the last eight games have seen 9 or more runs scored and we had a total of 7.5 for Monday's game.

Phillies and an Over look like something to consider here.

Blue Jays @ Orioles

The line on this game has dropped from Baltimore -165 to -158.

Baltimore Orioles career statistics vs. Jose Berrio have been pretty good (.291).

James McCann has four of the 11 home runs but has struggled so far this season. Adley Rutshman is dangerous against Berrio and has been solid this season.  He's 10 of 16 in hitting with one home run and two RBIs.

Berríos allowed eight runs on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Tuesday but just two runs each in his prior two starts.

Alert!  The Blue Jays have had very little success versus Corbin Burnes in a decent enough sampling of 42 at bats.  He's allowed just 8 hits from this current roster.

Burnes allowed five hits and three earned runs over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Nationals.  He logged a quality start prior to that but does not have a win over his last three starts.
