Pitchers

Aaron Nola PHI vs. NYM FD $8,900 DK $9,700

Aaron Nola will get the call for the 19th time of the season, aiming for another Quality Start. Nola was outstanding in his previous outing, limiting the tough Rockies lineup to just two runs in seven innings and finished with the no decision in a 3-2 Phillies win. The young right-hander has been terrific through his last nine starts, and now features an 8-7 record with a solid 3.12 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP in 112.1 innings of work. He took on the Mets early in the season and conceded four runs in five innings, and has now allowed ten runs in nine career innings against the division rivals. Michael Conforto and Neil Walker have both homered against Nola. The Phillies are only scoring an average of 3.97 runs per game, ranking them 29th in the Majors, and are hitting .248 as as team. The Philadelphia pitching is carrying a decent 4.55 team ERA, placing them 18th in the Major Leagues. Nola has been outstanding as of late, posting a dazzling 1.72 ERA over his last seven starts, and he owns a terrific 2.87 ERA at Citizens Bank Park this season, so I am very confident backing him. In addition, Matz is scuffling on the mound, recording an abysmal 11.03 ERA through his last six starts, so I expect the Phillies to generate some runs against the struggling left-hander.

 

d2958f28_mlbamDylan Bundy BAL @ OAK FD $8,900 DK $9,700

Dylan Bundy takes the mound for his 23rd start of the season here. He comes in 11-8 with a 4.15 ERA, a 1.191 WHIP, 40 walks and 107 strikeouts over 134.1 innings of work. Bundy picked up the win in his last start, which came on the road against the Angels Monday. He allowed two runs on five hits with no walks and 10 strikeouts over seven innings in an eventual 6-2 Orioles triumph. Bundy is 2-0 with a 3.98 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP, four walks and 19 strikeouts over 20.1 innings in his last three starts. He did not factor into the decision in his lone relief appearance against the A’s: he threw two innings, allowing an unearned run on two hits with a walk and two strikeouts. In his 61stmajor league appearance and 37th start, Bundy pitches at the O.co Coliseum for the first time in his career. This one is a matter of who still has a shot to make something of their season. Despite some abysmal play in long stretches of the season, the Orioles are still in the heat of the wild card race. Bundy seems to have righted himself in his last three starts while Manaea has been roughed up. That, coupled with Oakland’s dealing of some of their veterans at and after the trade deadline, gives the Orioles the advantage in this contest. Look for Baltimore to tighten things up with a win here.

 

254e6cdf_mlbamMike Clevinger CLE @ TAM FD $8,900 DK $9,700

Taking the hill for the Indians in this one will Mike Clevinger and he has gone 5-4 with a 4.00 ERA in 16 games (14 starts) on the year, including 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA in his last three starts and 4-2 with a 3.10 ERA in eight starts on the road. Clevinger has gone 6-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 24 career starts overall and this will be his first career start against the Rays. Cleveland has been a solid offensive team this year so far as they come in ranked 9th  in the league in scoring, putting up 4.79 rpg, while also ranking 9th in hitting at .259 and 22nd in homers with 131. On the mound they have been strong so far this year as they come in ranked 4th in the league in ERA at 3.74, while also ranking 2nd in WHIP at 1.21.
