Dodger’s Yasmani Grandal (.267/.319/.469, .788 OPS) might pose a problem against Straily. He had one hit and one RBI in three at bats against the Marlins’ starting pitcher. He got one hit, one double, over three at bats against the Kansas City Royals.


Both of the teams’ starting pitchers are doing well for the season but the Dodgers have had an easier time against Straily. The Marlins’ pitcher has given up three homers in his career against the opposing team. While the Marlins are having a hard time hitting and scoring against McCarthy.
