Pitchers

Ervin Santana MIN vs. OAK   FD $9,200 DK $8,600

One of the biggest surprises in the American League thus far has to be Twins starter Ervin Santana, who is an early Cy Young front-runner. He’s 4-0 with a 0.77 ERA that leads the AL. So does his 0.66 WHIP. The one game he started and Minnesota lost was thanks in part to 5 runs scoring against the bullpen. Santana comes off allowing one run and four hits over seven innings in Texas in a victory. Santana sparkled at a venue that had previously frustrated him. In 17 previous starts at Globe Life Park, he was 6-7 with a 6.93 ERA.  “Everything is clicking right now,” Santana said. The Twins likely would be willing to trade Santana if they aren’t in contention for a playoff spot come July. The 34-year-old was 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA in two starts last year vs. Oakland.

James Paxton SEA vs. LAA   FD $9,300 DK $9,200

James will make his sixth start of the season, looking to improve his record to 4-0. Paxton was brilliant in his previous start, tossing seven shutout innings against the Tigers and got the win. The hard-throwing right-hander is off to a magnificent start, sporting a 1.39 ERA along with a 0.84 WHIP in 32.1 innings pitched. He has also been racking up the strikeouts, fanning 39 batters on the season, giving him a 10.86 K/9 ratio. Paxton features outstanding numbers against the Angels, boasting a 2.17 ERA and a 3-2 record in seven career starts. Kole Calhoun is 7 for 23 against Paxton, while Albert Pujols is 4 for 20, and Mike Trout is just 2 for 20. Nelson Cruz is one of the hottest players in all of baseball, belting five homers along with 15 RBI’s over his last seven games. The 12-year veteran has recorded a hit in all but six games this season, and is now hitting .315 with seven home runs and 23 RBI’s. Cruz went 1 for 10 with two RBI’s in three games against the Angels last month.

Chris Sale BOS vs. BAL   FD $11,700 DK $12,500

With Sale on the mound and Baltimore a little bit banged up, runs could be tough to come by for the visitors. The under is 24-9-1 in the Orioles’ last 34 against winning opponents. It is also 27-11-3 in the Red Sox’s last 41 overall, 12-5-2 in their last 19 at home, 19-6-3 in their last 28 against the American League East, and 5-0 in Sale’s last five starts. Additionally, the under is 8-1-2 in the last 11 meetings between the two teams. Look for this one to stay under the total.
