Boston Red Sox

Bryce Harper continues to rake and a look around the league

The Phillies have won four straight and scored 13 runs in Boston on Tuesday, as the Red Sox sport a historically bad team ERA .

Rhys Hoskins finally hit his first homer of the season, and there should be much more to come from one of the unluckiest hitters in baseball so far in 2020 ... Alec Bohm reached base in four of five plate appearances and looks ready to help fantasy managers in a big way down the stretch.

He hits cleanup behind Harper (who currently has a .486 OBP), has the DH now to help accrue more ABs, and plays in a park that’s increased HR for right-handed bats an MLB-high 26% over the last three seasons, so JTR is setup well for a massive upcoming contract.

Scott Kingery ’s playing time hasn’t yet taken a huge hit thanks to Jean Segura ’s injury (and there’s still a chance he shifts to center), but he was removed after just two ABs on Tuesday.

Last week I talked about how three humidors were secretly installed , and far wiser voices than myself have said the effect can work both ways , and ultimately the impact should be small (nor will we have a big enough sample this season) … If there were any sweeping conclusions I’d make about any early season Park Factors , it’s that Buffalo might be Coors Field in the AL, and I added Travis Shaw , Rowdy Tellez and Randal Grichuk (who homered for the fourth time in five games Tuesday) in all leagues possible … The Yankees lost their first game at home this season after starting 10-0, which is against this year’s theme, as home winning% is the second lowest it’s ever been (and something to consider in DFS, as home pitchers aren’t getting the same usual K zone benefits).

One day after breaking the silly unwritten rules by hitting a grand slam on a 3-0 pitch, Tatis Jr. had the audacity to steal third base up 6-0 on Tuesday night (a game that ended 6-4), as he’s quickly becoming baseball’s most likable player.
