Pitchers

 

Collin McHugh HOU @ CWS FD $11,400 DK $12,600

Right-hander Collin McHugh is taking the mound for Houston on Wednesday. The right-hander is 0-0 with a 3.24 ERA in three starts since entering the rotation last month. McHugh most recently faced Tampa Bay last Thursday, when he went six innings and allowed only one earned run on five hits and two walks while striking out six batters during a 5-3 loss. The Astros are in a bit of a funk by their standards, but they have still taken care of business on the road of late and they are having no trouble beating up on weak opponents. Chicago certainly qualifies as such–especially on Wednesday with Gonzalez in less than stellar form. Houston is 38-14 in its last 52 on the road, 7-1 in its last eight against opponents with winning percentages under .400, 56-25 in its last 81 against right-handed starters, 9-3 in McHugh’s last 12 starts, and 7-1 in McHugh’s last eight road starts. The White Sox are 17-42 in their last 59 overall, 2-11 in their last 13 at home, 3-11 in their last 14 against right-handed starters, 1-6 in Gonzalez’s last seven starts, and 1-4 in Gonzalez’s last five home starts. Don’t be surprised if those trends continue.

 

25c782bb_mlbamRick Porcello BOS @ TAM FD $11,400 DK $12,600

Taking the hill for the Red Sox in this one will be Rick Porcello and he has gone 54-14 with a 4.70 ERA in 23 starts on the year, including 1-2 with a 5.31 ERA in his last three starts and 1-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 10 starts on the road. Porcello has gone 20-15 with a 3.92 ERA in 45 games (44 starts) during the month of August and he is 10-7 with a 3.43 ERA in 20 career starts against the Rays, including 5-3 with a 2.69 ERA in 10 starts here at Tropicana Field. The Red Sox have been a solid offensive team so far as they come in ranked 10th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.76 rpg, while also ranking 5th in hitting at .263 and 27th in homers with 116. On the mound, they have been very strong so far as they come in ranked 3rd in the league in ERA at 3.71, while also ranking 4th in WHIP at 1.25.

 

216e5d91_mlbamJustin Verlander DET vs. PIT FD $11,400 DK $12,600

Justin Verlander takes the mound for his 24th start of the year for the Tigers. He comes in 7-7 with a 4.20 ERA, a 1.409 WHIP, 60 walks and 136 strikeouts over 137 innings of work this season. Verlander picked up the win in his last start, which came Friday on the road against the Orioles. He threw seven innings allowing two runs on six hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts in 5-2 Tigers victory. Verlander is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, five walks and 25 strikeouts over 20 innings in his last three starts. He makes his eighth career start against the Pirates in this contest. Verlander is 4-2 with a 4.15 ERA and a 1.269 WHIP over 43.1 innings in those starts. He is 95-50 with a 3.24 ERA and a 1.156 WHIP over 1,233.2 innings in his 185 career starts at Comerica Park.
