Imanaga can even keep walks to just five while hitting 29 times for 29 hits! His efficiency could prove instrumental against Atlanta Braves batters.

Reynaldo Lopez of the Braves stands out with an outstanding record and 1.53 ERA that are just as impressive, boasting only 26 hits and two homers allowed over 35.1 innings pitched so far.
