Yaquis de Obregon vs Tomateros
Francisco Rodríguez is starting for Obregon, the new Yaqui plucks the Águilas according to their FB.
He pitched one outing for Culiacan. In 5.0 innings at work a 1.80 ERA ( one earned run ) against Mexicali. However, a high balls in play percentage and his stuff was not that good with 3 BB and 2 SO.
He pitched a lot in 2018, with Tabasco in the first and the second league, but both on AAA level.
For Mex1: In 48.1 innings> 1-4: 5.77 ERA> 1.72 WHIP> 4.1 BB/9, 4.1 K/9
For Mex2: In 60.2 innings> 4-4: 3.71 ERA> 1.42 WHIP> 5.2 BB/9, 5.5 K/9
For the Tomateros we have Edgar González on the mound. The Rightie who came from the Diamondbacks farm has a lot of experience in the MLB< in 10 seasons a 5.92 ERA, 1.56 WHIP.
For Culiacan he is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA> 1.77 WHIP. However, he deserves better with the stuff he has> 2.8 BB/9, 6.4 K/9. Also, not very big sample size of 22.2 innings pitched.
He pitched a lot in 2018 though.
With Monterrey Mex2 (AAA level ) he went 7-2 with a 2.83 ERA> 0.94 WHIP> 1.3 BB/9.
Moreover, Gonzalez os coming from a decent win against Charros De Jalisco as he 2 earned runs in 5.1 innings pitched. His stuff was big with 1BB and 6 K so he deserved even better that outing.
Culiacan has the better bulllpen. Also offensively wise they have plenty of talent with Miller ( Seattle Mariners draft ), Pena ( Giants ), Wilkins ( Twins ), Mustelier ( Atlanta ), Cruz ( yankees ) to name a few.
This might be closer than the odds suggest and hence solid value on the Tomateros as a road dog for plus money.
