Mac Scherzer has been one of the most consistent pitchers in New York’s struggling rotation, currently holding a 3.95 ERA. Scherzer also has a very high strikeout rate. In his five starts in the month of June, he struck out 8 or more batters four times, only failing to do so against the Yankees in a game that he was pulled from early on. The Brewers strikeout the 4th least of any MLB team, but I’d still take the over here.
Christian Yelich has really heated up as of late, starting to look closer to the MVP-caliber player he was a half of a decade ago. After batting .228 in April, he hit .284 in May, and improved that mark even further to .315, with a .913 OPS, in June. Yelich has been especially hot over the last few weeks. Since June 11, he’s gone 18 for 51 at the plate (.353). I’m slamming the over for Yelich so long as he keeps playing at this level.
Pete Alonso continues to play a crucial role in the Mets lineup. He ranks 3rd in the MLB with 24 HRs, and 6th in RBIs with 55. That being said, Alonso’s power has been his only weapon, as he has struggled to find the same consistency at the plate as years prior. In the month of June, Alonso is hitting just .148, with a meager .641 OPS. I wouldn’t trust him to drive in runs on a daily basis, though all it takes is one home run.
