Will Venable is making his Rangers debut on Thursday
Texas Rangers outfielder Will Venable is starting in left field and batting eighth Thursday in his Rangers debut against the Detroit Tigers.
Venable is batting .258/.318/.378 with a .314 wOBA on the season as he arrives in Texas. However, it appears the Rangers shouldn't expect production like that as our algorithm has Venable hitting .224/.294/.347 with a .281 wOBA for the remainder of the season.
Tonight he'll face Tigers starter Alfredo Simon who is getting crushed by lefties, giving up a .383 wOBA while producing a 4.61 xFIP. Venable has a solid .318 wOBA versus righties but his opportunities will be limited in the eight hole.
