Pitchers

 

e6fa0c5e_mlbamJames Paxton SEA vs. LAA FD $9,900 DK $12,300

James Paxton is set to make his 20th start of the year for the Mariners. He missed most of the month of May with a grade 1 forearm strain. Paxton is 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA, a 1.085 WHIP, 32 walks and 132 strikeouts over 113.1 innings of work. He picked up the win in his last start, which came on the road against the Royals Friday, to set a franchise record with wins in seven straight starts. Paxton threw six innings, allowing two runs on four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in a 5-2 Mariners triumph. He is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA, a 0.79 WHIP, one walk and 25 strikeouts over 19 innings in his last three starts. Paxton makes his 10th career start against the Angels in this contest. He has a 4-2 record with a 2.04 ERA and a 0.907 WHIP over 57.1 innings of action. Paxton is 16-10 with a 2.74 ERA and a 1.173 WHIP over 34 career starts totaling 200.1 innings of work at Safeco Field. The Angels have pushed themselves back into the AL wild card race and this will be an important series for both teams. Seattle has been sizzling, which pushed them into the second wild card spot in the American League. The Mariners have the major edge on the mound with Paxton scorching hot at the moment. Skaggs struggled in his return from the disabled list and that trend continues here: look for Paxton to make it eight straight starts with a win as Seattle gets the victory.

 

a4f0935e_mlbamJacob deGrom NYM @ PHI FD $10,600 DK $12,700

This is a team that has not had those offensive issues for much of the year, but they have averaged a solid 5.21 rpg on the road, so they are hoping their offense returns in this series, but it will not be easy as the Phillies have pitched well at home of late. On the mound, they have allowed 5.71 rpg over their last 14 games, so the pitching, continues to be a problem for them. Still, the one pitcher that has not had many issues this year has been Jacob deGrom, who will get the start in this game. He has gone 12-5 with a 3.36 ERA in 22 starts on the year, including 1-2 with a 3.32 ERA in his last three starts and 6-2 with a 4.23 ERA in 11 starts out on the road. deGrom has gone 5-5 with a 3.79 ERA in 16 starts during the month of August and he is 5-0 with a 2.34 ERA in nine starts against the Phillies, including 1-0 with a 4.13 ERA in four starts here at Citizens Bank Park. The Mets have been a solid offensive team so far as they come in ranked 15th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.67 rpg, while also ranking 22nd in hitting at .248 and 5th in homers with 164. On the mound, they have been poor as they come in ranked 29th in the league in ERA at 4.95 while also ranking 30th in WHIP at 1.48.

 

bfaa6190_mlbamDanny Salazar CLE @ TAM FD $9,300 DK $11,700

Danny Salazar takes the mound and makes his 16th appearance and 14th start of the year for the Indians. He is 4-5 with a 4.32 ERA, a 1.333 WHIP, 33 walks and 105 strikeouts over 75 innings of action. Salazar missed nearly seven weeks with soreness in his right shoulder. He recorded a no-decision in his last appearance, which was a start on the road against the White Sox last Friday. He threw seven innings, allowing one run on four hits with three walks and 12 strikeouts in a 2-1 Indians loss. Salazar is 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP, five walks and 28 strikeouts over 20 innings in his last three starts. He makes his fourth career start against the Rays in this contest: he is 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA and a 0.964 WHIP over 18.2 innings against them. Salazar is 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA and a 0.732 WHIP over 13.2 innings over his two career starts at Tropicana Field.
