Reds: Reiver Sanmartin should get first major league start vs Pirates

Many fans forget that when the Cincinnati Reds acquired Sonny Gray from the New York Yankees prior to the 2019 season that another pitcher was part of the trade. Reiver Sanmartin has been in Cincinnati’s farm system since that deal was made and the 25-year-old may well get his first big league start on Monday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Huascar Ynoa looks to help the Braves shave down their magic number against Padres

After a bit of a comeback, the Braves ultimately lost in the bizarro world suspended seven inning game and then won game two highlighted by a Maddux from Max Fried on Friday, the Braves have a 1.5 game lead over the Phillies for the division lead in the NL East with a magic number of eight and eight scheduled games remaining for Atlanta to play, plus the postponed game against the Rockies that may or may not be played. The Phillies won again on Friday against the Pirates and get two more games against them before the big series in Atlanta between the two NL East competitors starts Tuesday. The Braves would do well to maintain as big of a gap as possible heading into that matchup.

Saturday night Orioles game thread: vs. Rangers, 7:05

The Orioles are two games into this four-game series with the Rangers and it’s knotted up at one apiece. Texas took last night’s game by a score of 8-5, but the silver lining was Cedric Mullins’ ascension to the 30/30 club when he hit his 30th home run. You can read Alex Church’s recap of last night’s action here. Game three will feature a pair of right-handed starting pitchers.

Breaking down Eduardo Rodríguez’s starts against the Yankees in 2021

Tonight, the Yankees finish their season series with the Boston Red Sox, as Jordan Montgomery takes on Eduardo Rodríguez in a battle of the lefties at Fenway Park. On paper, this looks like a fantastic matchup for the Yankees. With an ERA of 3.55 and a FIP of 3.49, Montgomery has genuinely been one of the best No. 2 starters in baseball this year, ranking 20th in fWAR among starting pitchers who have thrown at least 140 innings with 3.5. Rodríguez, on the other hand, has struggled to keep runs off the board, posting a 4.97 ERA despite a 3.45 FIP, thanks in part to Boston’s terrible defense (their -6 OAA with him on the mound is tied for 272nd in baseball).

MLB Betting: Sunday Best Bets

This article is part of our MLB Betting series. I was looking at a number of ways to play the under and ended up landing on the total game under 8.5. I like both starting pitchers and the Indians have struck out 30 percent of the time the last 14 days. But Giolito has been inconsistent his last seven starts, so with both bullpens in the top 5 for FIP in the last 14 days, I am confident this game will go under 8.5 runs. Both teams average around 4.0 runs per game in the last 14 days and we get two very good pitchers in this matchup.
