Chris Sale vs. Tampa Bay Rays
Park – Fenway Park
Sale has hit a bit of a rough patch lately as he allowed at least three runs and failed to pitch more than 4.1 innings in two of his last three starts. His season numbers are still excellent overall as he is 15-7 with 2.85 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 270 strikeouts in 189.2 innings. He’ll likely set a new career-high in strikeouts Saturday as his previous high for a single season was 274 in 2015. Don’t read too much into his recent struggles as they came against the Cleveland Indians (who have given him trouble this year) and the New York Yankees. This is a favorable match up against the Rays as he is 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and has 49 strikeouts in 29 innings against them this season. Pay up for Sale and enjoy the dominance.
Jeff Samardzija vs. Chicago White Sox
Park – Guaranteed Rate Field
Samardzija’s overall numbers this season are average as he is 9-12 with a 4.31 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 184 strikeouts in 183.2 innings. He has pitched very well lately though as he has allowed two runs over his last three starts combined. He is quality start machine as he has seven in his last eight starts. The White Sox don’t have a scary offense and entered Friday with a .246 batting average at home, fourth worst in all of baseball. Look for Samardzija to at least come away with another quality start in this contest.
Seattle Mariners vs. Andrew Heaney (Los Angeles Angels)
Park – Safeco Field
Heaney missed most of the season due to injury and has struggled in four starts since his return, posting a 6.98 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in 19.1 innings. One of the main reasons for his struggles is that he has already allowed a staggering 11 home runs. To put that into perspective, Yankees starting pitcher Sonny Gray has only allowed 13 home runs in 139.2 innings this season. This is not a good match up for Heaney Saturday as he takes on a Mariners team that has some powerful bats in the middle of their lineup. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity.
Players to consider stacking: Nelson Cruz, Kyle Seager and Jean Segura
Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Jhoulys Chacin (San Diego Padres)
Park – Chase Field
Chacin has put together a decent season on a terrible team as he is 12-10 with a 3.96 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 132 strikeouts in 159 innings. He’s actually been on a hot streak of late as he has allowed two runs or less in four of his last five starts. However, this is a very poor match up Saturday against a Diamondbacks team who entered Friday with a .273 batting average at home. Chacin has also been terrible on the road this season as he has a 6.96 ERA and 1.67 WHIP away from Petco Park. Make sure to fill your lineup with Diamondbacks as this could be an ugly afternoon for Chacin.
Players to consider stacking: J.D. Martinez, A.J. Pollock and Ketel Marte
