Home Run Pick Analysis: Juan Soto & Elly De La Cruz

@Loughy_D Juan Soto – NYY: +255

RHP Griffin Canning has already surrendered seven home runs to lefty hitters this season. He has been generating only 33 percent ground balls, has a 17.1 percent HR/FB rate and a .222 xISO, while striking lefty batters out at a paltry 15 percent clip across 132 batters faced.

Meanwhile, 12 of Soto’s 14 home runs have come against right-handed pitchers. He doesn’t strike out, boasts a .266 xISO vs. righties and will be hitting inside the league’s third most homer-friendly venue to left-handed bats tonight in Anaheim’s Angel Stadium.

@is_sirois Elly De La Cruz – CIN: +520

I would’ve taken Juan Soto as my pick for FanDuel’s Dinger Tuesday, but Loughy sniped me, so (a) you should tail him and (b) I’ll go for a bit more of a longshot than I usually do. Let’s back Elly De La Cruz to go yard (+520 at FanDuel) at Great American Ball Park against RHP Kyle Gibson and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Gibson, like Canning, has given up plenty of expected home runs with 7.5. Importantly, he has coughed up nine batted balls that would’ve cleared the fences at Cincinnati’s hitter-friendly stadium. His .278 xBA and .484 xSLG are both worse than Canning’s, too.

The problem is that Cincinnati doesn’t have a dominant bat to target like the New York Yankees, but Elly De La Cruz will have to do. He has mashed nine actual home runs (on only 5.9 expected — talk about luck!) with seven batted balls that would’ve cleared the fences in Cincinnati.

Aside from the ballpark, which leads the MLB in park factors for home runs, splits are the best argument for backing De La Cruz tonight. He is slashing .256/.348/.529 with 16 extra-base hits and eight home runs against RHPs this year. Gibson is allowing lefty bats to slash .241/.328/.466 with 14 extra-base hits and seven home runs.
