Landon Knack has been tremendous for the Dodgers, and he gets another opportunity to prove himself at the big league level thanks to Yoshinobu Yamamoto (strained rotator cuff) getting added to the injured list.

Knack gets a favorable matchup against the Angels, who have struggled to hit right-handed pitching this season and are without some key bats.

I'll be targeting another good start from Knack in my SGP, as well as counting on a lefty killer to do some damage against Patrick Sandoval.

As always, please play responsibly and keep in mind this is a long shot for a reason.

Read below for my Angels vs Dodgers MLB parlay, including Friday SGP picks.

At 47-30 with a +108 run differential, the Dodgers have been roughly as dominant as expected and get an opportunity to show off their organizational depth due to their current list of injuries.

Knack owns an ERA of just 2.61 this season across 20 2/3 innings pitched with a WHIP of 0.97. He holds an xERA of 3.50 and an xFIP of 4.48. He holds a Stuff+ rating of 101, including an elite rating of his slider. He owns a Location+ rating of 95.

In Triple-A, Knack owned a K/9 of 9.07 and an ERA of 3.54 this season. He's fully stretched out and is capable of taking on a full workload in this start if need be.

The Dodgers have hit to a wRC+ of 142 against left-handed pitching over the last 30 days and an OPS of 142. They'll provide a stiff test to Sandoval, who has a 4.11 xERA this season and an allowed xBA of .260.

Landon Knack Over 4.5 Strikeouts

Knack gets a great matchup against an Angels side that owns a 22nd-ranked wRC+ versus right-handed pitching over the last month.

They've struck out 20.3% of the time in that span and own a wOBA of .293.

Knack should get five innings in most favorable game scripts in this matchup, and if he has a successful outing, there's a good possibility that'll mean five strikeouts and leaving with a lead.

Teoscar Hernandez Over 1.5 Total Bases

As noted, the Dodgers have been crushing left-handed pitching recently, and one key reason why has been the play of Teoscar Hernandez.

Hernandez owns a .622 slug-rate versus lefties this season and an OPS of .936. He's barreled 13 pitches versus lefties this season, which is tied for most in the MLB.

Sandoval has allowed a WHIP of 1.56 to right-handed batters and a slug-rate of .422.

The Dodgers will need to be productive to get our -1.5 across the finish line, and there's a good chance that'll involve extra bases for Hernandez in this highly favorable matchup.
