Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Washington Nationals - Brandon Pfaadt vs. Patrick Corbin (4:05 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (-118) at FanDuel

After successfully cashing the YRFI in Tuesday’s matchup between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals, we go back to the well as two more underwhelming pitchers are set to take the mound for Wednesday’s contest. One of those pitchers includes our favorite fade target for our daily YRFI series as Patrick Corbin continues to play as one of the worst starting pitchers in all of baseball.

It’s already been a season to forget for the struggling Corbin as he enters the contest with an ERA of 5.84, a WHIP of 1.623, a FIP of 5.14, just 48 Total Strikeouts, 29 Batters Walked, an astonishing 96 Hits Allowed, and 50 Earned Runs Against in 14 games played. Corbin has routinely looked like he has little control of his command as his high Walk Rate indicates, as well as little to no power to generate Whiff opportunities.

This spells potential disaster against the Diamondbacks offense to our benefit, as Arizona should find themselves in scoring position early and often against Corbin. The Diamondbacks offense has been their lone source of production as they rank well above league average in Team Total Hits, RBIs, Total Runs Scored, and On Base Percentage. With Corbin averaging nearly two batters on base per inning, the Diamondbacks would be one single away from cashing the YRFI.

As for the Diamondbacks defense, they have yet to recapture last year's success in their World Series run as they rank well below league average in Team Total Pitching ERA and Defensive Efficiency. Brandon Pfaadt has not helped them in their efforts to turn it around as he takes the mound with an ERA of 4.38 and a WHIP of 1.162. The Nationals offense may underwhelm across all previously mentioned offensive metrics, but they will have a good opportunity to match Arizona’s offensive production against the lowly Pfaadt.

Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays - Brayan Bello vs. Kevin Gausman (7:07 PM, EST)

Over 0.5 Run (+106) at FanDuel

Later in the night we turn our sights towards another familiar fade target when Kevin Gausman takes the mound for the Toronto Blue Jays. Gausman entered the year as a Cy Young contender before sustaining an injury in the preseason. While he did fortunately get to avoid surgery as it was ruled just a shoulder strain, Gausman has yet to resemble anything like a Cy Young contender as he continues to struggle on the mound.

With an ERA of 4.08, a WHIP of 1.267, a FIP of 3.39, 79 Hits Allowed, and 34 Earned Runs Against in 14 total games played, the Boston Red Sox offense will do him no favors in his efforts to round back into competitive form. The Red Sox have been an impressive offensive unit all season long, ranking well above league average in Team Total Hits, RBIs, Total Runs Scored, and On Base Percentage.

As for Boston’s defense, they have been equally impressive by ranking in the top half of the league in Defensive Efficiency and Team Total Pitching ERA, but unfortunately trot out Brayan Bello who has struggled with keeping opposing runners off the bases. Bello enters the contest with an ERA of 5.00 and a WHIP of 1.397. That bodes well for a top heavy Blue Jays offense who has severely underperformed so far this season.

Bet on Over 0.5 Run (+106) at FanDuel
