Los Angeles Angels vs. Seattle Mariners Match Details

Fixture: Seattle Mariners @ Los Angeles Angels

Date & Time: Tuesday, August 16, 9:38 p.m. EDT

Venue: Angel Stadium, Anaheim, California

Expect Ray to mow down the Angles' lineup for a third consecutive start.

MLB Player Prop #2: Bryan Reynolds Over 1.5 Total Bases (+115)

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Boston Red Sox Match Details

Fixture: Boston Red Sox @ Pittsburgh Pirates

Date & Time: Tuesday, August 16, 7:05 p.m. EDT

Venue: PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Reynolds steps in on Tuesday against a struggling Nick Pivetta. Reynolds has feasted on right-handers with high flyball rates like Pivetta. He's slugging .562 in these matchups since the start of the 2021 season and should have a good opportunity to keep this up from the top of the order.

MLB Player Prop #3: Andres Gimenez Over 1.5 Total Bases (+125)

Cleveland Guardians vs. Detroit Tigers Match Details

Fixture: Detroit Tigers @ Cleveland Guardians

Date & Time: Tuesday, August 16, 7:10 p.m. EDT

Venue: Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio

Gimenez has been red-hot since the middle of last week. He has an OPS of 1.379 in 18 at-bats over the last five days, including two home runs. On Tuesday, he'll face the Tigers' Garrett Hill, who he should be able to hit.

Expect the Guardians' All-Star to keep raking against this Tigers pitching staff.

MLB Player Prop #4: Daniel Vogelbach 2+ Total Bases (+210)

Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets Match Details

Fixture: New York Mets @ Atlanta Braves

Date & Time: Tuesday, August 16, 9:38 p.m. EDT

Venue: Truist Park, Atlanta, Georgia

Daniel Vogelbach is projected to bat fifth tonight against the Braves. Vogelbach has a slugging percentage of .774 in the last two seasons against right-handers who rely heavily on the curveball. Opposing starter Charlie Morton throws his curveball 36.6% of the time, even more than his fastball.

Also in his career, Vogelbach has taken Morton deep once in 10 plate appearances. Look for the lefty slugger to have a solid day at the plate in this one.

Last 15 Days' MLB Picks are: 106-82-4 (+163.9 Units)
