Every once and awhile, I like to provide updates on who the best and worst offenses in baseball are so you can know who to avoid and who to get excited about when streaming starting pitchers or just deciding when to bench your rostered ones. Since handedness is very important here, I’ve got the ten best and worst offenses against each hand, for a total of four tables. These are subject to change as the season goes on, but we are almost halfway now and should have a pretty good idea of where these teams stand. Enjoy!

So there you have it. The Padres, Giants, Royals, Angels, and Pirates are bad against everyone, and the Rangers, Diamondbacks, Rays really struggle against lefties compared to righties. The Red Sox, White Sox, and Cubs all crush lefties while struggling against righties. The Nationals, Astros, Dodgers, and Reds should just be avoided altogether when streaming.
I hope these leaderboards are helpful tools for you as we approach the mid point of the season. All stats are courtesy of Fangraphs. Tschus!
