InDepth Spotlight: Kyle Drabek vs. Alex Rodriguez
Rookie Kyle Drabek (TOR) has pitched left-handed batters fairly well this season, holding them to a .200/.351/.333 line. However, righties have hit him a little better: .267/.327/.422.
Alex Rodriguez (NYY) has hit right-handed pitching better than left-handed, particularly over the last three years. In that time, he's put up a .406 wOBA against righties, 36 points higher than against lefties.
Alex has been turning on balls up and in very well this season, while Kyle has had his troubles trying to jam righties. He'll likely try to work Arod down in the zone as much as possible this afternoon.
Arod not starting today - day off for the third baseman. Save this one for the next matchup.
