Game 46, Rangers at Mariners
Millwood vs Feldman, 12:40 pm.
The M’s face Scott Feldman today, who is a sinkerballing right-hander, and those guys usually have pretty significant platoon splits. But Feldman’s a little weird, because he actually has a small reverse platoon split for his career, perhaps because of how good his split/change can be at times. This isn’t the kind of thing you really want to react to, but it’s worth keeping an eye on, and might be a reason why Alex Liddi is playing while John Jaso is on the bench. Against most right-handers, that would be a bad idea. Against this right-hander, maybe not so much.
