A match of LHers, Matz v Martin Perez

Rosario SS
Alonso 1B
McNeil 3B
Davis LF
Conforto RF
Ces DH
Dozier 2B
Ramos C
Nimmo CF

Matz P

I would have sat Yo, had Dozier DH, rewarded Gimenez with another start (tonight at 2B) and given Cordell a start in CF for Nimmo.

Nunez to the IL (contusion)
Strickland DFAd
Dozier and Zamora recalled

Why are they resting guys in a 60 game season. They just started.

The only regular out of the lineup is Cano, and it's a LHP starting for Boston. He was replaced by Dozier:

Cano and Dozier vs LHP since 2016:

Code:
Name      PA     Triple Slash   OPS
Cano     717    .256/.311/.388/.699
Dozier   657    .273/.368/.514/.882


You're trying to win, and Dozier platooning with Cano is probably a good idea.

Then cut Cano because you can make any number of comparisons with him and players using last year as part of the stats. Cano has started hitting

That's not happening, but you have an option on the roster that makes for a clear platoon with Cano, which also gives him so days to rest.

And people complained why Cano didn’t sit last night rather than Rosie. May as well accept that a 30 man roster means we’re going to see more guys worked in to these rotations than we were previously used to. I think it’s better, frankly. Most players are assets in the right situations. Dozier has been a beast against LHers for most of his career. Was a nice pickup if they use him properly.

To be fair the lineup managing is at least in part due to the fact these guys have played what, a handful of nine-inning games in four months? Plus with the increased # of playoff teams and the DH, teams can still do load management even in a 60-game season.

With DH we shouldn't have a different lineup every night. It smacks more of using pieces because you have them.

Platoon or not there should be a lineup for lefties and a lineup for righties.

Dozier rakes against M Perez
5-14 with 2 HR.

Cano:
5-33

This was likely a matchup specific move and not about rest.
