Mike Handzelek's Thursday MLB Play of the Day/Wed. Analysis/Review

With the odds feed not up @ my press time, here's my play on the Thursday, April 27th, 2023 Oakland Athletics @ Los Angeles Angels 4:07 PM start. We're going to take a look @ the talented Shohei Ohtani of the Angels this afternoon. My book on him shows he has a mean slider and 98 mph four-seam fastball with a tail that devastates most hitters. He's far from a slouch as he mixes in nicely a cutter, a splitter & a sinker, all @ 90 mph & above. He very seldom uses a curve ball that he usually throws under 80 mph as an off-speed pitch because its easier to adjust to. His 6-pitch repertoire has paid BIG dividends as he's tabulated an off-the-charts 0.64 ERA & an even better 0.56 ERA over his last 3 starts. Over the longer haul of his last 7 starts, the lost ER's he's given up in an of those outings is 1. The Athletics come into town ranking 24th in offense (of 30) & have 11 players injured and/or out since opening day. They've struggled versus RHP over the first month of action hitting RHP @ an under-the-Mendoza .211. Ohtani is super-tough @ the Sombrero where his ERA is 0.00. Let's go to Angels Stadium to play the OAKLAND ATHLETICS-NO SCORE 1st INNING as my 9 Star Thursday MLB Play of the Day! (WIN) Wednesday, April 26, 2023 Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) - 1:07 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -175 Toronto Blue Jays Rating: 9* Mike's MLB Humpday Quick Pick (WIN) Yusei Kikuchi is a southpaw with zip! His excellent starts are documented. He bring in a productive 3-1 record in the no score-1st inning category. There's a good chunk of unfamiliarity here as Kikuchi last faced the Pale Hose 2 seasons when he pitched for Seattle. He takes them on again with Chicago in the bottom 10 of the majors in hitting. He'll face an overwhelmed 1-2-3 order of Roberts, Jr. .216, Benintendi .294 & Jimenez .183. We'll bank on taking the CHICAGO WHITE SOX-NO SCORE 1st INNING as my 9 Star MLB Humpday Quick Pick! Mike Handzelek's 2023 MLB Overall Record: 8-0 for 100%
