Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Brothers at Monkeys

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Chinatrust Brothers (12-13) at Rakuten Monkeys (16-6)

Thursday, May 21, 6:35 AM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Huang En-Sih (2-0, 4.50 ERA) vs LHP Justin Nicolino (1-1, 6.48 ERA)

Game Preview

Thursday's lone CPBL game features the top two teams in the standings, though the Brothers already trail the league-leading Monkeys by 5.5 games. The Brothers will hand 24-year-old righty Huang En-Sih the tough task of shutting down the Monkeys' loaded offense. Huang didn't look good in his 68.2-inning debut last season, struggling to a 7.47 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP, but he's been far better through his first four starts this year, recording a 4.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Whether that ERA remains low after he faces the Monkeys for the first time this season remains to be seen. Opposing him will be veteran American lefty Justin Nicolino. His 6.48 ERA through his first three CPBL starts doesn't look good, though it's barely worse than the league-average 6.32 mark. He faced the Brothers his last time out and struggled significantly, getting driven from the game after giving up eight runs (six earned) in 3.1 innings.
