MLB Sunday: Dodgers vs Rockies stat insights, Julio Urias vs Antonio Senzatela in Coors rubber game
Today's contest between the Rockies and the Dodgers pits THE BAT's #14-ranked SP (Julio Urias) and against the #99-ranked SP (Antonio Senzatela). The rundown on Urias tells us that he leans on his four-seamer fastball 48.0% of the time and keeps hitters off balance with a curveball (34.2%). Senzatela is a four-seam guy (54.6%) who brings a slider as his most-trusted secondary offering.
Julio Urias's 2499 rpm fastball spin rate since the start of last season grades out in the 97th percentile among starters.
The Colorado Rockies have just one righty in their bullpen, so Gavin Lux stands a good chance of of never facing a bullpen mismatch all game.
Max Muncy projects as the 11th-best hitter in MLB, per THE BAT X.
Antonio Senzatela is an extreme ground ball pitcher (50.6% GB% per THE BAT projections), which should make him somewhat immune to the dangers of pitching in Coors Field — the #5 HR venue in the league — in this game.
Dom Nunez is an extreme fly ball batter and squares off against the above-average outfield defense of Los Angeles (#11-ranked on the slate today).
The Colorado Rockies have 3 bats in their projected batting order today with an underlying K% over 30%, according to THE BAT X (Dom Nunez, Ryan McMahon, Sam Hilliard).
