Tuesday’s Game 4 in Arizona is expected to feature a lengthier series of arms out of the bullpen for both sides.
This is Mantiply’s second start of the postseason; his other resulted in one inning pitched after having allowed one hit against Philadelphia in the NLCS. Arizona deployed seven pitchers from the bullpen in that game.
It’s difficult to approach lines in these situations because it’s going to be a game of mound chess between Torey Luvollo and Bruce Bochy. All this means is that it’s up in the air after the first inning. Even so, I still like how the Diamondbacks stack up against Heaney from the get-go — especially Tommy Pham. headtopics.com
Pham quietly resided in the top-40 hitters in quality of contact this season. He was also Arizona’s most effective player in xSLG at .472. Pham has hit those exceptionally well this year with an average exit velocity of 94 mph and a .413 xwOBA.
