Starting Rotation 5.13
Thursday brings us the normal split slate but please do note the early slate starts at 12:20 PM, which is earlier than normal. The slate gives us five games to pick from while the evening gives us six for a total of 11 all day. The full breakdown will be in the early slate, so let's get down to business in the Starting Rotation 5.13 to lay our foundation for both slates!
Starting Rotation 5.13 - Early Targets
Jack Flaherty - Past one poor start in miserable conditions on Opening Day, Flaherty has pitched like a bona fide ace. One fairly significant change from the 2020 season is he's using his four-seam/slider combo about 80% of the time, up from roughly 74%. If you're playing Flaherty, that's what you want to see because those pitches have combined for 38 of 42 strikeouts, have a wOBA under .300, and both have a whiff rate over 18% (the slider is 38.8%).
