Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Minnesota Twins - Bobby Miller vs. Chris Paddack (1:10 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (-113) at FanDuel

While we cashed in on our Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates afternoon YRFI, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins failed to do their part for a perfect Tuesday slate. With two underwhelming pitchers taking the mound in the next game of their series on Wednesday, we are taking the YRFI once again as both teams will be in a position to get the scoring started early.

Starting with the Dodgers, their young prospect Bobby Miller takes the mound for his third game of the season. Miller started his career off on the right foot back in 2023 but has so far put together an underwhelming start to his 2024 campaign.

So far this season, Miller has thrown for an ERA of 5.87, a WHIP of 1.174, six hits allowed, three batters walked, and five earned runs against. While his 14 strikeouts in two games is impressive, it also shows that he is aggressive in his efforts to punch batters out. That leaves him prone against upper tier contact hitters, potentially getting shelled early against the Twins top of the order.

As for the Twins, they trot out Chris Paddack who has been a middling pitcher for the majority of his career. Paddack has a career ERA average of 4.22 and has started his 2024 campaign with an ERA of 4.50, a WHIP of 2.000, and two earned runs against in just one game.

The WHIP of 2.000 is especially alarming as he now faces the most lethal batting lineup in the league. The Dodgers currently have four batters in the top ten for most hits this season with all four kicking off the first inning at the top of their batting order. While the Dodgers didn't kick off their scoring until the middle of the game yesterday, expect a quick turnaround this time around with their elite batters against a reeling pitcher in Paddack.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies - Tommy Henry vs. Austin Gomber (3:10 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (-164) at FanDuel

Shortly following the conclusion of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins game, we turn our attention towards the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies in an inter-division battle. The Diamondbacks have underwhelmed as a whole to start their season with a 5-7 record, but their batting production is hardly to blame as they have played as one of the best batting units in the league.

Their hot bats now get the benefit of playing at Coors Field which is one of the friendliest hitting parks in the league. Not only do they get the benefits of playing at Colorado, but they also face the Rockies Austin Gomber who has struggled so far this season. In two games played, Gomber has an ERA of 6.23, a WHIP of 1.846, 10 hits allowed, six batters walked, and six earned runs against. Expect the Diamondbacks to get aggressive early, taking advantage of the park factors as well as a regressing Gomber on the mound.

Speaking of the Diamondbacks, their pitching has played well below expectations as a potential playoff contender and has left them prone to getting down on the scoreboard early. Tommy Henry has not helped in their efforts to minimize opposing scoring production, starting the year with an ERA of 7.00 and a WHIP of 1.778 in just two games played. The Rockies batters may be lackluster, but are due for positive regression against Henry should he continue to underwhelm.
