Left-handed hitters haven’t stepped into the box much this season against Lodolo this season. And when they have they haven’t done much hitting. Right-handed hitters have found a lot of success, though. They have hit .299 and they’ve gotten on base at a high clip, too.
Lefties haven’t been given many opportunities to face off against Ashby, but the ones that have been given a shot have been more successful than righties have this season. They are walking more, hitting for a higher average, and hitting for the same amount of power as righties are.
Not shown are his home and road splits. He’s pitched more than twice as many innings on the road as he has at home, but when he’s been in Milwaukee he’s pitched much better. At home he has a 2.84 ERA this season with a 0.99 WHIP (4.72 ERA on the road, 1.66 WHIP). He’s held hitters to a .194/.255/.387 line in Milwaukee this season.

News and Notes
Hunter Greene doesn’t need surgery
Yesterday the Cincinnati Reds placed Hunter Greene on the 15-day injured list with what they initially called shoulder fatigue after a bullpen session earlier in the day. He headed back to Cincinnati to be examined and after an MRI he does not need surgery.
Greene had an MRI, but is still undergoing more tests. Surgery is not needed though.
