- To Hit a Home Run: Yordan Alvarez (+340) — The Astros are heavy favorites today against the Rays, as they are starting Zack Greinke against Andrew Kittredge, who is a mostly middling career reliever. There should be plenty of offense coming from the Astros' lineup, and rookie Yordan Alvarez could be a big part of the assault. In the midst of a remarkable first year in the MLB, Alvarez has 21 homers in just 219 at-bats, good for a .703 slugging percentage. In one career at-bat against Kittredge, the rookie took him deep for a three-run shot.
