Matchup is a push: Roberts, Guerrero

After a hot start to the season, several bats in the Baltimore lineup have cooled off. In fact, Luke Scott is the only regular starter who continues to perform at an above-average rate. On the other hand, Brian Roberts is a player who always seems to be a thorn in the Rays’

In the season’s opening series, Roberts went 4-13 and had a pair of game-changing hits. His switch-hitting ability keeps him away from a platoon split; however, the Rays will look to turn him to the right side of the plate if they can. Of his 84 career home runs, 68 of them have come against right-handed pitchers. This means Cesar Ramos will likely get
the call if Roberts comes up in a high-leverage situation.
