Pitchers

 

a4f0935e_mlbamJacob deGrom NYM vs. MIA FD $10,400 DK $12,700

Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the 25th time of the year, looking to get back on track after a rough outing. DeGrom conceded five runs including two home runs in 7.1 innings to the Yankees last time out, and was charged with the loss. Overall the 6-foot-4 right-hander is having a stellar season, featuring a 3.35 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP to go with a 13-6 record in 158.2 innings pitched. He limited Miami to only two runs in seven innings in his lone start against them this season, and now sits at 4-3 with a 3.46 ERA in 11 career starts against the Marlins. Marcell Ozuna is 8 for 27 with three RBI’s against deGrom, while Giancarlo Stanton is 7 for 18 with five RBI’s, and Christian Yelich is 11 for 29. The Mets are currently averaging 4.64 runs per game, ranking them 18th in the Major Leagues, and are hitting .247 as a team. The New York pitching is struggling, registering a poor 4.87 team ERA, placing them down at 27th in the Majors.

 

Brad Peacock HOU vs. OAK FD $8,400 DK $9,200

Brad Peacock takes the mound for his 28th appearance and 15th start of the season for the Astros in this contest. He is 10-1 with a 3.30 ERA, a 1.284 WHIP, 45 walks and 121 strikeouts over 92.2 innings of work this year. Peacock recorded a no-decision in his last outing, which was a start Tuesday on the road against Arizona. He threw 4.2 innings, allowing four runs on seven hits with one walk and nine strikeouts in an eventual 9-4 Astros win. Peacock is 1-0 with a 6.35 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP, four walks and 20 strikeouts over 17 innings of work in his last three starts. He is 3-4 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.551 WHIP over 59.1 innings in his 14 career appearances, 11 starts, against the A’s. Peacock is 8-9 with a 4.39 ERA and a 1.476 WHIP over 42 appearances, 29 starts, totaling 168 innings at Minute Maid Park in his career. The A’s continue to show the issues that most young teams do: they only put together a solid performance in one facet of the game most days. They either hit and don’t pitch or pitch and don’t hit. We saw that happen Friday night as Manaea turned in his best start in a few weeks but there was no offense to speak of. Houston is just clicking regular season games off the schedule as they wait for the postseason and hope to be healthy when that time comes. Peacock has been solid this season: look for him to get win number 11 as the Astros take the finale.

Gallardo has gone 24-16 with a 4.36 ERA in 50 career starts in August and 36-33 with a 4.01 ERA in 107 games (104 starts) in the daytime, while against the Rays he has gone 3-2 with a 4.71 ERA in seven starts, including 2-1 with a 2.82 ERA in four starts here at the Trop. The Mariners have been an average offensive team so far as they come in ranked 15th in the league in scoring, putting up 4.71 rpg, while also ranking 7th in hitting at .261 and 20th in homers with 142. On the mound, they have been a bit below average so far as they come in ranked 15th in the league in ERA at 4.47 while also ranking 12th in WHIP at 1.30.
