Rays at Rangers, game one: lineups and projections

Three pitches, wide splits. Disaster? - USA TODAY Sports

Lineups and regressed splits projections for game one.

Here is tonight's Rays lineups with projections against Alexi Ogando, based off of the ZIPS projection system and regressed splits numbers. A graphical representation with numbers for non-starters is available in the series preview. ZIPS gives Ogando a pretty strong projection, which I doubt is properly considering his transition back into the starting rotation (If you disagree, Dan Szymborski, please come educate us). Still, he's shown some pretty wide splits, so expect it to be a long (short) night for the Rays' right handed batters.
