Top Home Run Picks for May 26

  • C.J. Cron (+280)
  • Juan Soto (+400)
  • Trevor Story (+295)
  • Mookie Betts (+310)
  • Freddie Freeman (+380)

C.J. Cron (+280) - Colorado Rockies at Washington Nationals

C.J. Cron is having a monster season for the Colorado Rockies, as he enters Thursday’s game with a .314 batting average, 12 homers and an impressive .955 OPS. He leads the league in total bases, and now he faces a struggling lefty in Patrick Corbin (0-7, 6.60 ERA).

Corbin has allowed six homers already this season, and Cron traditionally mashes against left-handed pitching, posting a career slash line of .280/.337/.516. This season, he has four homers against lefties in just 41 at bats.

He’s going yard today. -- Peter Dewey

Juan Soto (+400) - Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies

After a rare shutout at Nats Park on Wednesday, expect another high scoring affair in D.C. this evening; capped by Soto's ideal matchup against Rockies RHP Germán Márquez.

For his career, in 11 ABs, Soto is slugging .909 with two home runs against him. He also ranks in the 90th percentile or higher in MLB Statcast data for Max Exit Velocity, expected weighted-on-base average, and expected slugging.

Baseball Savant - MLB.com

Marquez has already allowed eight home runs this year, and owns a WHIP of just under 2.00 against left-handed hitters.

Soto's matchup couldn't be any better to leave the yard today. -- Ben Heisler

Trevor Story (+295) - Boston Red Sox at Chicago White Sox

One of the hottest hitters in the game lately, Story is erasing a slow start in Boston with six homers in the last week. He is slugging nearly .900 against lefties this season and now gets the soft tossing Dallas Keuchel to feast on.

The White Sox left hander is allowing more than one home run per 9 innings this season and has an ERA of 6.60.

I'm riding the hot hand on Thursday. -- Reed Wallach

Mookie Betts (+310) - Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Betts is the leading home run hitter on the Dodgers and it’s not even close.

He’s hit 12 homers this year, when the next closest player is at five. The Diamondbacks give up just over one home run a game, which is why I’m taking Betts to hit one today. He hit multiple home runs in the second game of the Nationals series two days ago.

After a day off, why not back him? He’s hit four dingers in the past five games.

This is a hot streak play and I’m happy riding the hot hand. -- Donnavan Smoot

Freddie Freeman (+380) - Los Angeles Dodgers at Arizona Diamondbacks

Freddie Freeman has only hit three home runs this season. That doesn't seem right, does it?

I think he finally gets his fourth tonight when he and the Dodgers take on Humberto Castellanos and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Castellanos has allowed two home runs in each of his last two starts, and he hasn't had a particularly tough start to his 2022 schedule. Tonight, the Dodgers will be the toughest test of his season, and with the total set at 9.5 for the game, I expect at least a few dingers.

I'll back Freeman to hit one tonight. -- Iain MacMillan
