Atlanta over N.Y. Yankees

1:35 PM EST. Look, Nestor Cortes (LHP - NYY) is having a fine season, and the Yankees are one of the best teams in the game, but value is value. Today, we turn to The Bronx, where we find Max Fried (RHP - ATL), who has been dominant of late and is coming off a start versus the Tigers where he allowed one run over 5.1 innings pitched with six strikeouts. Fried dropped his ERA to 3.11 (xERA is 3.26). He sports a 76/27 K/BB rate and an elite 60.1% groundball rate (Cortes’ is just 31.1%) through 84 innings. This looks like a tremendous opportunity for Fried to post another strong start versus a Yankees team hitting .214 with weak margins over the past month versus LHP. Meanwhile, the Braves smash LHP, ranking fifth in the majors in average, and seventh in OPS. Fried is a true ace, and he’s a pooch. We’re not passing up that value.
